It ensures a more balanced/fair team setup. Hence the whole point of a less serious off-season pug cup without clans.
If you think it's a waste of time, you don't have to sign up. Smiley
I won't wait for every single player to vote.

how do you think about putting this into auto-server-message on G&G and extend the sign ups to get some more players?!

Groent is unrelated to this PuG Cup, but if he's willing to do it, he has "permission" (it would be appreciated).
As for extending, there's still nearly a week time for signups. Smiley Waiting too long only makes people forget and/or lose interest.

What's the location of the server to be played on? Will the players from the USA get hosed with 150+ ping? I might join for giggles, but if the ping is ridiculous the usa players will be severely handicapped..

The servers will be whatever the teams agree on, but it's 99% likely to be EU servers since that's where the majority of players are from. USA's competition spirit has dwindled long ago.

Like if there's y teams you'd make same y seedings, to avoid a team'll get all the good players or could I end up bashing a whole team of Sun clanners with Shag, NIKITA, Pebl and other awesome players?

If all goes well, about 2 weeks.
The sign up phase is over this sunday.
Then the team voting phase begins for a week.
Then one more week so the maps are decided on and added (this week is also used for the players to set up a forum, vote a leader, discuss tactics, etc - not on Newerth, but in private between them).

Can i add a side effent to this?

Collecting all the stats from the Games.
Player with:
-Most kills in all Games.
-Most deaths in all games.
-Least deaths in all games.
-Most homewrecker awards.
-Most sadist.
-Most unbreakables.
-Most most violent.

We will need a screenshot from the games anyways.


2nd Question:
This event is following the NSL rules. But as this is just a fun event, will there be spectators?

You are correct, screenshots (and demorecords) should be made for every match.
If anyone wishes for stats/awards to be tracked like that, send me all screenshots and I will do so (unless someone else wants to).

2nd Question:

While it is indeed "just" a fun event, it still is a competition and thus spectators are forbidden. Shoutcasters are alright if agreed on by both sides. Wouldn't want to cause drama.

I'm sorry I do not have time to read all of these so if these have been discussed before, I am sorry for the repeat. 
Q#1.  What server are the PUG matches going to be held on? 
Q#2.  Where can I go to see what team I am chosen to be a part of ? (will it be posted somewhere in this forum or something completely separate?)
Q#3.  You mentioned that players with overall lowest kills will be "brutally exterminated", does this mean they are going to be removed from the team, but the remaining team members do not get punished and there is no further action? Or is it the players with the lowest kills will also take the team down with them i.e elimination as a whole. 

Thanks

Whatever serves the two teams agree on when scheduling. Since most players will be EU, you can be certain that server choices will also be EU.

Q#2.  Where can I go to see what team I am chosen to be a part of ? (will it be posted somewhere in this forum or something completely separate?)
The teams will be posted inside the PuG Cup section.

Q#3.  You mentioned that players with overall lowest kills will be "brutally exterminated", does this mean they are going to be removed from the team, but the remaining team members do not get punished and there is no further action? Or is it the players with the lowest kills will also take the team down with them i.e elimination as a whole. 
I did not say that. You've misread:
  • In case of a 0:0 draw, the team with less kills overall will be brutally exterminated (screenshots VERY important for this)

The longer Signup phase will only influence team size right? I doubt we are getting another 48 players in those days. Wink

Depends on the amount of extra players, as you calculated. Smiley
