I was thinking maybe we can have players find their own teammates. Kind of like in TT where players can choose which doubles partner they want to have. I think that kind of format had worked well for TT and some players might even be encouraged to invite other TF members (who's not playing the game yet) to join their team.

I thought about auction only after you suggesting the idea of choosing your own team .

If you guys know about IPL in cricket , they do this auction (here we can exchange players without money :-P) , kinda similar to the soccer exchanges ;-)

Be so happy that when others look at you , they become happy too

Re: Pentathlon #20 -- China Open -- You may send for Monday!

I think if you have 2-3 friends who want to play, they should be allowed to form a new team without being drafted

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

I thought that there is an extreme amount of money involved at IPL

Oh I see. Who will decide to exchange the player? The team captain?

Maybe in the next event we can have that. The team captains for each team can ask ppl who wants to join their team. It can be first come, first serve basis for players who wants to join a team. If there are ppl who wants to form a new team then their nominated team captain will have to declare their team members (who have committed of course) and say if there's still an opening in their team. Just an idea.

Re: Pentathlon #20 -- China Open -- You may send for Tuesday!

No doubt, I try to make the game more njoyable and try to invest new things, but I might go too far time to time. I only invented the game, but this is for you guys. So:

Which team race you prefer, the new one (FEDCUPLIKE) or the old one with discarding?
