Letting one of the top 5 of world, 2600 teaming With two 2200 kinda kill the principe of this tournament, and its interrest aswell.

It was made so 8 non ecl clan play, real clan (I remember forever very long debat about making tournament that is for real clan like cz nC ror etc) however gaucho is an historical Argentinian clan, feage joining the clan just for this tournament is the exact opposite of what you wanted, and the exact exemple of what you was against.

Anyway playing for 2nd place is still cool, np

They have Black as a handicap so it should balance out.

First of all I'd like to thank everyone involved in this, we are really thankful for the organization and invitation.

But I have to agree with Edie, even hiring Feage for this tournament wasn't so cool, it goes totally against the spirit of the event/invitation. When we got invited we were very hyped about it(since I really feel all other 7 teams are capable of beating each other and that's what makes it super cool), looking at this we aint so much anymore, unfortunately(we are still very happy to participate of such event don't take me wrong, just pointing out the obvious stuff).

We can't even fight for second place due to brackets.

I don't feel like talking much about the professional and non professional players/teams, but if you get paid you are kind of a professional player in aoe scenario, hopefully at least something can be done for those who has to face the team that has professional players to have a second chance in brackets?

For me one of the biggest mistakes regarding historia and geography is to not put berbers to North Africa.

Berbers are the principale people who lives in North Africa mixed with Arab people. Berbers were Christians and Jews. Puting them to Middle east is strange even if they are predominantly Muslims right now.

95% of berbers lives in North Africa. And the last 5% in Europe(France..).

Their wonder is located in Morocco.

Its like not puting France in Europe, or China in Asia x)

That's said its just an aoe tournament and the mistake is probably not that important^^
And I suppose there must have been compromises to create equitable groups taking into account military and eco bonuses.^^

I was extremely surprised to see Nicov listed as well. He is on aM. How can he be in this as well? I don't know if Feage is on BzK or not officially and if he isn't, then I don't see an issue with him, nor really LB10. Nicov makes zero sense. I was wondering if it was a different Nicov actually since I know there is another one out there signed up for the nations cup 2v2.

LB10 is in nC so its totally fine. Wonder that nC is not with nili too.

UPDATE:
We have added a 3rd placement match, in which both semifinals losers will fight for the "Bronze" and a 100$ prize for the winner.
So the overall prize pool increases to 600$.
1st placed: 350$
2st placed: 150$
3rd placed: 100$
Due to short notice, teams must play 3 vs 3 if needed.
