Teams will be based on what COUNTRY you are born in. For example, if you were born in United States you will be automatically placed on the USA team. 1 TEAM MEMBER CAN BE FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW; (Just to add a little difference to it)

- Each team must have at least 5 people and at most 8. The members will be selected on a first come first serve basis. The first 8 people who post on this forum saying they would like to participate fills the spot. If you are unable to retrieve at least 5 people for your team/country, then you will not be able to participate (saves us having teams of 3. (((((unless it is Iceland, they can have a team of 2 ) (even out the odds hehehehehhe)(teasing Iceland):(

- Since both members and non-members may join this tournament, the challenges will be Exclusive Open Challenges

- During the challenge you must have at MINIMUM OF 5 ENTRYS . The winning team will be based on the average score comprised of the participants in the challenge.


- First Challenge will be [b]JULY 1ST.

- Top 3 finishers will receive custom made avatars (they won't be fancy :P) But still fun.

If you wish to join, please also post which country you are representing. I will be updating this post with countries and their members :)

1. All teams must have at least 5 members enter the challenge. In addition the top 5 scores will be calculated under the weekly average for the team. I’ve decided to use the top 5 because this allows everyone to bring their “A” game to this tournament. Also, a lot of teams have 2-3 great players, and they can simply dominate the entire competition. This is a team effort, so 2 or 3 players shouldn’t be doing everything.

2. In terms of the point system, I’ve decided to adopt a simple one with giving a certain amount of points for the top 5 teams.
1st – 10
2nd – 6
3rd – 4
4th – 3
5th – 2

[user]DIRTDIVER[/user] will be once again doing the scoring, so a HUGE thank you to you!!

3. The competition will be 8 weeks worth of challenges. The challenges will be
ONLY Exclusive Open Challenges, since some teams don’t have members that belong to DPC. The first challenge will be on JULY 1ST 2008.
3. After 8 weeks, the top 3 teams with the highest amount of points will receive medals that they can put up on their profile

4. As team captains, it is your job to inspire your teammates and make sure they participate every week or nearly every week.

If anybody wants to create new team jerseys like the ones I created last time you can download my photoshop template here:

Jersey Template (PSD file) - I've organized it so you could just swap out a new logo and change team colors easily or get more creative if you like. If any team wants me to create a new one just ask and I'll be happy to create one for you just make sure whoever is asking represents the team.

Btw, there is only one team in this template so if you wanted to just update the jerseys you used last time with new names and such PM or email me and I can make your team specific photoshop file available or make the updates for you if you ask nicely. :) If you do ask I request that only one person per team contact me with their team updates so I don't have to go back and forth making changes.

Small Team Banner Sample (PSD file) - Just a sample version of one of the signature banners. Basically once you have your jersey created just copy and paste them here and resize it to fit. Again I can update this for you if you wanted to stick with what you used last time.

Hi Juliet, can you please take me off of Team Canada? I do not think I will have the time to compete properly.

I will honor my signing with team Poland. They're a great gang.

Lydia, looks like USA SUPERMAN has empty slots. I think you can just say it and you'll be on the list?
