It gets dicey with my group. We all play a Company oif Heroes Modification(Europe in Ruins.www.europeinruins.com) we were planning to split our RO2 playing members by region (NA/EU) and in that way enter 2 distinct regional teams.

We've not diverged enough to form two seperate teams so we're now going to run one but when it asks for all potnetial members I could literally list hundreds. Our Mod quite literally is a clan in that we play all sorts of different games and spend alot of time together. Even if I just restrict it to members of our mod who own RO2 it's still quite a large number.

Shall I just enter our member stats?(it's into the hundreds[technically thousands] of unique ID's)

Some clarification please.

We also are a very large multi-gaming Clan. The OP says only 1 team is allowed. Does that mean only 1 team per Clan? Or is 1 team per division allowed, meaning 1 US team and 1 EU team?

Thank you!

It means 1 team per clan..You then have to decide what division you wish to participate in..USA or EU..

What about CoreNA vs Core, they are effectively one clan yet still 2 separate clans. How is the distinction made?

There is no distinction, If Core are 1 clan then they can only enter 1 team..The fact they have a US and a UK divsion is not an issue for the Scorched Earth team but an internal issue for Core to sort out.
The rules are quite clear 1 clan 1 team.
We will only accecpt one application per Clan.

Core and CoreNA not the same clan, but sister clans from what I know, they are different teams, with entirely different websites, leadership and lineups.

Core and CoreNA are 2 entirely separate clans - we don't share a website, we don't share players for matches and the leaders for each are different.

Although we are still friends with the guys in CoreNA, we have not been "effectively one clan" for a few years at least.

The rule 1 clan, 1 team is fine for us because, as stated above, we are 2 clans

ughh. 8v8...Not my cup of tea. I've spectated 64 player battles trying to create a video and even with that many players you can't see a thing. Every single player is too busy keeping out of sight.

Which is why I wondered where the distinction was made. When is a clan truly the same clan and when is it a separate clan. Because sometimes the same website is shared for different clans. Or the same clan has totally grown away from each other essentially forming 2 different clans using seperate websites.

CIA/COR were 2 different clans before they merged and formed TK, but at the end they effectively seemed pretty much the same as to being one clan. While Core and CoreNA are as different as any clan, but by name and origin seem and essentially are the EU and NA section of the same group, although they are completely independent and not connected in anyway now.

Core and CoreNA are not the same clan! They are as separate as any 2 clans in RO and have been for some time.

It's not an internal issue because there is nothing that actually links the two clans other then the name.

And nope, currently you only have to worry about the names of the team captain and vice captain. Not of all the participants. The moment we need all the names of the members are when the clans are selected, it is not something to worry about right now
So you guys are randomly selecting clans that sign up? Or is it first come first serve?

Yes - You may enter a team but remember that you are at a significant disadvantage when playing other teams because of your timezone and distance as ALL mtaches will be played on the official servers based in the USA or Europe.

PersonallyI would say that you may struggle to compete to the best of your abillity because of these disadvantages but hey if the spirits willing then go for it..

There is nothing random about it..There is an internal selection process which is very fair and very dispassionate..

The whole Scorched Earth team (FH, TWI and TWB) were very aware that a robust and rigorous selection process would be needed.

That is in place..And no we will not be telling anyone how it works..

Suffice to say that all concerned want a tournament that will represent a showpeice for the game and highlight the best aspects of the community that support that game.

In some ways the prize money is secondary to those aspirations..
We all want to show just how good the game is and just how good its community is.

Appreciate that and thanks for the kind words and yes you are correct FH/SE do not offer RO2 ladders..They may do more one off events..But long term ladders are not on the agenda..

So can you tell us who is in this team and what their credentials are that put them in a position to choose the right teams?

Why do they need credentials?
What credentials do they need?
And why are you asking for them?
They are not running for president they are merely part of a selection team for game tournament..

Suffice to say they are experienced adults fully capable of implementing the selection process and its mechanisms.

And no we are not revealing the team as that could put them under undue pressure from outside influences.

He's saying you should include every clan that DOES play on a regular basis, which is not the same as what you've inferred.

Personally I see no reason why the tournament shouldn't be expanded to accommodate all teams wishing to enter, after all why not? Expanding the tournament requires no further division of the prize money since that's only allocated to the top 2 teams anyway and it improves the depth of competition and credibility of the competition. By handpicking a small number of teams you're only handicapping yourselves when in fact you actually have a perfect opportunity to host a large tournament taking full advantage of the developer support and say to the rest of the world "Hey this is the RO community, look at our big fancy tournament showcasing what we can do!".

I don't know what your selection process is so I can't comment on that, but your comments in this thread have made me slightly wary and anxious that it will not include all 'deserving' teams. I really hope you do the right thing and don't mess up this fantastic opportunity the developers have given you.
