    So, how many players are we now - I counted 8 in the OP. What sort of ranking system do we use and how many games does each of us has to play?

    like the op says, you get in a group, you play that people 1 game home 1 game away - after the group rounds, the 4 best players are gonne get into the half final then final - depending on the number of participants even quarter finals.

    can't wait ;)

    It's rare we get a game before our NTSC friends, so let's take the opportunity to make them ever so slightly jealous.

    If that is your main goal now, then you have failed. I am not slightly jealous in the least. I am INCREDIBLY jealous of your Mario-Striking abilities.


    I also heartily approve of this idea and would like to see it continued upon release here.

    The top player from Groups #2 and #3 and the top two players from Group #1 will go through to the semis.

    (It's not quite as fair as having 4 seperate groups but it's the only way I can see of doing it. Other suggestions welcome :D)

    If the Groups stay like this, I would give the 4th spot to best 2nd place in the group round.

    Average to level the games more that the players from the big group have.

    However, since the teams in group 1 will have played an extra two games (because of the 4 people in their group), you would probably hvae to ignore the results they got against the lowest place team in their group. That should put them all on the same playing field.

    Nope, if you have a pc setup nearby then we can use the PA Ventrillo server, it works nicely whilst playing.

    One more thing. Is there any rule regarding the change of Captain/Sidekicks between games to counter the opponents tactics?

    Good point.

    I'd say it's fine between the home/away sections as both people can do it. But Grinch is God here.

    As a side note is there any difference made by the home/away choice other than the character intros?

    Home team picks captain first. That's why you play everyone twice, home and away. The home guy also sets up the game and chooses the pitch.

    Personally I feel there should be no rule against changing Captain/Sidekicks between games. For a start it's just a bit of fun, ruthless as we all may be, and secondly in a real match (although I'm not overly up on football) there's no harm in changing the team around.

    So I'm fine with Captain switching/changing if everyone else is.

    Yeah, Home guy has advantage of first pick on captain and choice of stage. So if you're better at a certain one go with that ;-)

    Does the KI level effect your chance of scoring a goal? I was playing a few games with Potu with KI level 2, and it seemed like every shot from my hammer brother went straight into the net. Maybe we should set the KI to level 3?

    In other news, I just beat number 41 and number 108 in the rankings, and damn if those weren't the most dramatic matches I have played yet.

    Don't forget that ranks reset every monday, in the first day or two it's more of an indicator of who has played the most (though that's all it is mainly anyway).

    the op says 5 mins. please play 5 min matches, otherwise the "score" value gets unfair in the statistics.

    and yeah, we should set the cpu level. doesnt the op say level 2 ?

    edit:
    - The person hosting (Home team) should set the game CPU to Level 2
    - 3 Points for a win in normal time (in five minutes)

    I just want to say that level 2 is a bit low. The keeper reacts too slow and this gives other players unfair advantages (The chances that hammer bros. shoot goals with charged shots are even higher, Kwak and I just tested). And we just played some 3 minute matches and there were already enough goals.

    Aw man, I just came here to post the result of our first encounter, but because I didn't read the OP carefully enough and insisted on playing 3min matches (just like ranked matches, after all), we have to play the whole series again. Well, I would like to share the results with you anyway just so that you know that I should have been the winner :P
    Spoiler:

    edit: we've been playing with KI level set to 3 btw, 2 seemed like it would have been too easy to score a goal.
