T78 Begins

TeamLeague is back, with 28 teams (a nice increase on last time) playing across 7 sections. Everyone will play a 6-round double round-robin. There will be no playoffs.

As always, new players are encouraged to read the Player's Handbook, which can be found under the Documents tab. Most importanty, remember to set your password via FICS, using the command "tell teamleague set password", and start all teamleague games with "tell teamleague play".

Game negotiations must take place in the Game Forum (, where a portal will appear at the start of the round, on Tuesday at 22:00, server time. Please use server times when making offers (using the 24 hour clock is also preferred), and make at least 3 initial offers on more than one day. Server time is EDT, and can always be seen on FICS by using the "date" command. The Initial Contact Deadline is Thursday at 22:00, while the Contact or Forfeit Deadline is Friday at 22:00.

Captains may add new players until the beginning of round 5, so long as the average of the 4 highest-rated players does not exceed the cap shown next to each section, on the teams page. Requests to add players can be done via the Captains Page, however they must be received by 22:00 on Monday to have effect for the coming round.

Questions are always welcome in channel 101, or can be sent by FICS message to the TeamLeague account.
