Hey guys, I made this thread for us to get together and figure things out, like team name, who wants to be team captain what pieces we are going to to be etc etc.

Post here so I know were all on the same page.

Hi I am here :)

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 11 2010 5:08 PM EST

pie. :>

adsill December 11 2010 5:11 PM EST

Give me a position worthy of a newbie like pawn :) I'll do my best to be useful :)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] December 11 2010 5:35 PM EST

So adsill just volunteer to be Captain and wants to be the king? :P

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 5:54 PM EST

Ok my first question is who here actually plays chess and is decent at it? I play but I wouldnt consider myself good, I dont know moves I'm used to just countering the computer and visually thinking it out, this is slightly different. So yeah we need someone to make the decisions. Adsill you wanna be team captain? :P

Anyway I'll take King if no one else wants to take it.

Btw I saw we talk strategy through either PM's or CM's, maybe even make a chat if we are all on at the same time.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 11 2010 6:03 PM EST

I am horrible at chess >.<

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 6:11 PM EST

Ok well I'm going to just take king since people seem to be getting a head start on us. Might as well build the king up to protect him

Everyone pick a piece :D

adsill December 11 2010 6:25 PM EST

I work a good bit but I assume I get some time to make decisions and some flexibility there so I'd be willing if it accommodates. Definitely taking the pawn :P

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 6:45 PM EST

Yeah nat is just waiting on getting team captains together so she can get everything started, but the tourney is unlimited BA so start your chars as soon as you can. I'm already getting our king of pie set up ;P

Guardian December 11 2010 7:56 PM EST

joined maybe as knight? u tell me

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 7:59 PM EST

King - Me
Queen - ???
Knight - KnightWarrior
Rook - ???
Bishop - ???
Pawn - Adsill

we're allowed to have 2 of either a rook, knight, bishop or pawn since we have one extra member.

Let me know asap so I can tell nat

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 11 2010 9:04 PM EST

I think I'll take a bishop.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2010 11:10 PM EST

I am happy to take the rook. Sorry it took me so long to respond, haven't had internet access for 24 hours.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 11:28 PM EST

King - Me
Queen - ???
Knight - KnightWarrior
Rook - Nayab
Bishop - MP
Pawn - Adsill

That leaves EoD and Dr. Know.

EoD should take Queen in my opinion, if thats alright with him, which leaves DK with his choice of Knight, Rook Bishop or Pawn.

adsill December 11 2010 11:50 PM EST

I'm a noob so a backup pawn would be nice!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2010 12:02 AM EST

If possible please add T1 to the front of your names, so you are easily recognizable. If you already made a char and didnt dont worry about it I'll keep track of everyones names.


Does anyone else want to make the moves for everyone? If not I will.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2010 12:51 AM EST

Change of plans EoD said he wont have the time to play which makes Dr Know our queen. Sorry DK, I'm going to post the team list in the tournament thread now.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 12 2010 1:00 AM EST

Think i should go archer like my counterparts in Team 2 or stick with my current mage strat?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 12 2010 1:16 AM EST

I still need to know who is in charge of match 1 and who is in charge of match 3 for your team.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2010 1:17 AM EST

I will take charge on match 3 since match one hasnt started yet, if any other takers want to have a go we will switch for match 1.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 12 2010 11:57 AM EST

anyone taking match 1?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2010 11:59 AM EST

I just posted asking if anyone wanted to take it, apparently the post monster ate my post and it never actually got here >_>

You wanna take match 1 MP?, I dont think I can do 2 at once, its too much to focus on.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 12 2010 12:11 PM EST

Read above post about chess-playing capabilities. XD

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2010 12:14 PM EST

Haha ok, I'm going to just CM everyone else then and ask if anyone wants to take game

Phoenix [The Forgehood] December 14 2010 10:38 AM EST

Given that Xeno's feeling his limit, should we withdraw from one match? I don't think it's really fair to ask him to pretty much play two games. Thoughts, team one?

DoS [Demon Forging] December 14 2010 10:45 AM EST

I say someone man up and take on the other match. No time, like the present, to learn how to play.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 14 2010 5:41 PM EST

Hey team, I'm trying to be fair and make some very safe moves to give everyone some time to catch up. All I ask is please pay attention to the tourney thread, If you aren't a chess player I can help you out to understand whats going on, but I would like our full team paying attention if possible so they know what lies ahead.

Check to see who you can beat on each team, check to see if your piece/s are in danger, and if so see what you can do to fix it.

Please CM/PM if you need help, I pretty much haven't left since the tourney started.

And yes I will be honest with all of you, this has been very taxing on me paying attention to both teams and playing both games, but I'm trying very hard for all of us. :)

Don't go stressin' yourselves out though, just play and have fun. :D Win some lose some you know. All I'm asking for is that we're all on the same page when it comes to everything that is going on.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2010 8:52 PM EST

Would you like me to take over in match 1?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 14 2010 11:48 PM EST

Yeah Nayab that would be good if you would like to do that, it would certainly make things easier for me.
