    has anybody else wondered who Russ (or whoever is responsible) comes up with these weird tourney names? I mean sure, greek letters and everything, it has a certain ring to it and there might be a system to it.
    But... this might just be my youthful ignorance kicking in again, but... how would you come up with something like Albinus Grouped Random?
    And is the Severus Grouped Random referring to Severus Snape in Harry Potter? And what kind of word is Pertinax? Or Saturninus, for that matter?
    Please, do enlighten me πŸ˜‰

    i think it has something to do with the alphabetic order of greek gods/godesses or something like that.

    maybe there should be a competition or something to see who gets to name the next tournament.... that person wins a bye into the second round? or something

    I think whatever names that Russ comes up with is fine as long as everyone gets to play in the tournaments be it mini bands, etc etc. Maybe it is just his style of doing something different.

    Diadumenianus, another Roman emperor? Something about that name just strikes me as cruel.
