TeamLeague 43 is about to begin E-mail

The pairings for round 1 of TeamLeague 43 will be posted at around 19:00 server time on Tuesday, June 29.

Here are a few reminders and suggestions.

  • Jaberwock has asked me to remind you to begin negotiations as soon as possible once pairings are posted, and to offer at least three times to play. All negotiations must take place in your game forum.
  • Remember that you are responsible for following the TeamLeague rules. Among the rules is a requirement to "set noescape 0", "set kibitz 0", and "set private 0" before you play. Noescape in particular can cause both you and your opponent to forfeit if it affects the outcome of your game. Also, don't forget to start games using the TeamLeague bot (usually "tell teamleague play" is sufficient).
  • If you can't play some week, inform your captain as early as possible. We understand that sometimes conflicts arise; that's why your team has reserve players (I hope). If you are scheduled for a game and are unable to play, your team will forfeit the game, which hurts your team more than if you played the game and lost.
  • Finally, a request: support your teammates! I know from experience that having observers/cheerleaders really makes a difference during the game. I know it's not possible to watch every game, but whenever you see an ArchBishop playing, offer some words of support in channel 175 or in whispers. Remember, most players can read channel tells while playing, so be sure to limit analysis of the game to whispers.

As always, if you have any questions, ask your captain or the friendly people in channel 175.  Go ArchBishops!

Update: after a delay due to technical difficulties, all pairings are up. ArchBishops_Sinners have a bye this week; see you this coming Tuesday. Everyone else, to the game forum!
