Feel free to comment, do suggestions, compliments or even criticize in a reasonable way.

Warning: Don't waste this link between BWC Staff and Players with deliberated verbal harassments.


Note: We are aware of the unbalanced number of players between the teams and a decision will be taken in a few days. Feel free to suggest it aswell.

Okay, Just a suggestion, as it is being discussed in the other thread.
Canada has an abundance of people. Maybe switch to east and West canada.
Or Quebec and Rest of Canada.(I realize the irony of this)

Has there been any scheduling yet? (Captains,(Assistants)start time etc.)

there are less quebecois then there are western canadians. would the rest of europe benefit much from having belgium added to them so benelux turns into just the netherlands?

will anyone on the usa/canada team get a default 2 min start when playing euro players?

For lag reasons :)

Thank God I know who you are, or I would have given a serious response.

Why isn't there put a shiplimit on the spider, like last seasons was the case.
One of the fun things about BWC for me was that you had to play a non-spider ship besides your terr and 2 sharks.
Why is this changed in the rules? and why isn't it done like it has been done before. Just because there are now new BWC ops or whatever you call them, doesn't mean you have to change such an important thing.
Why didn't you let everyone know you changed this? Atleast you should have put a poll up for this.

I have a suggestion for the Canada split.

Most suggest an east/west split like the USA split but i think this would work better:

Canada has a good amount of players, but the majority of our players are from eastern canada (ontario mostly i think), making the east/west split heavily dominated by the east team. If we elect two captains, who could work together to pick the two teams, making sure that 2 good starting sharks 1 good terr and some solid fighters were on each team. Canada could successfully field two competetive squads.

Without naming names I can count about 6 guys that could start in shark for a twlb squad (or have started shark for an lb squad). a couple solid terrs, with a few guys that could be thrown in, in a pinch. and easily 10 lb quality spids + some subs.

In terms of splitting the players, when the roster sign up is closed and the captains are picked, have the two canadian captains and a BWC op sit down, and have a turn by turn pick, or since i'm guessing all canadians would like to see a canadian team win, just sit down and devise what our two best lines are.

I even forgot about this. They also changed to timerace after me repeatedly saying in staff chat that BWC should be pointrace/ set time most points game. If only ZeUs wouldn't have quit.

4 spid limit and pointrace/ set time most points game for the win!

i didnt check the rules all that close yet, but if its found you're playing for a country you shouldnt be, what is the penalty?

in my opinion, just remove the person from bwc. i dont think its possible to accidentally get yourself put on the wrong team an not notice. should be a no mercy rule, especially since the point of the tournament is to play along with only the people from your country.

you should obviously give the captains a chance to make sure that all of their players are from the correct areas before it all starts though. you dont want to make a starter out of a person that could be removed halfway through the season.

Why dont you split teams like 2 teams canada and try some pre-season matches to see who actually will have problems to show up.

You could get 2 players that asked to be cap and draft the others on the same region. Guess this could be dont with east usa and canada.

my only suggestion is to split up the canadian and eastern u.s. teams. they both have about twice as many players as each other team. to encourage fairness we should try to keep the numbers fairly equal. further division by geography might create an imbalance, so perhaps menelvagor's idea would work: choosing captains who could alternately pick through the roster to create two even teams. East U.S. Team A + East U.S. Team 1 & Canada Team A + Canada Team 1! ;)

this would complicate which part of the world is best at basing in a sense. if that is a huge problem, then geographically separating the teams would be better, but you would have to find a fairly equal dividing line.

put me on the RotW team ...

i've played there the last 2 or 3 BWC and i've already said i'd not be happy playing for UK & Ireland team as i don't see why Ireland has been put with the UK when it wasn't before.

i could go into more reasons about the political insensitivity off these changes

i'd rather i was just put on the roster i feel i should be on and that is RotW

I agree with you tbh. Republic of Ireland is not related to Britain at all apart from them both being in Europe and speaking English. Northern Ireland however is a part of Britain and should be kept.
This is a pretty sensitive issue and i don't think it has be thought over that carefully -_-

LOL, ok ill try to explain. Maybe Its known and I didn't write it good so ill be completely ridiculous.


There is a saying in Hebrew that you can translate it as "From where the fish is peeing". Because no body really know from where they do (or if they do), so its like proving something that it thought it couldn't be.

So if you say "benlux will win again" like its a proven fact or you so sure about it, then someone from Finland can say: "But wait! we got Mikkiz, He will show you and benlux from where the fish is peeing". So its like saying he can prove you wrong. :-P

I agree, and as of this moment declare my boycott of the BWC event until the great nation of Ireland is removed from any and all association with England/British Union.

Can someone give me a real explanation as to why 2 non basers were capped for West USA over the incumbent and successful Vatican Assassin?

'There are many reasons' does not count as a viable explanation.

I know Canada has been figured out, so why is East US still huge? Wasnt the reason Canada split up was because it was gigantic? Every other team is around 30, but East US is double that.

Splitting up EAST USA now might give problems with the number of teams involved. There was room to split up Canada because Europe merged with ROTW.
