T84 Begins

This season we have 21 teams competing across 5 sections. Spassky section will be a 5-round single round-robin, while all other sections will be 6-round double round robins. All sections will have playoffs in round 7; uniquely Spassky will have a section-wide bye in round 6, and will also have a 3rd/4th playoff (in round 7).

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 (http://teamleague.org/LightNEasy.php?page=newgf), 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 6, 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 any change requests should be sent a day ahead of the start of a round, to guarantee that they have time to be processed.

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