Welcome to the Relays :wavey:

PAW Olympics 2004 will consist of 5 events:

Event 1 - PAW (the usual format)
Event 2 - PAW Pairs
Event 3 - PAW Triples
Event 4 - PAW 100m Relay
Event 5 - PAW 400m Relay

Please Note- The scoring points for the matches will be the same in ALL events.

Countries open for committments (as of 12 August, 5.05pm BST):

Croatia (2 places left for 100m, 2 places left for 400m)
Hungary (2 places left for 100m, 2 places left for 400m)
Indonesia (1 place left for 400m)
Thailand (2 places left for 100m, 2 places left for 400m)
USA (1 place available for 100m, 1 place available for 400m)

Explanation

100m Relay

In this relay, a team of 4 will make their picks for a different round each.
The team will have already decided who will pick first, second, third and fourth.

It will work like this:

1st member - Picks 4 matches from round 1
2nd member - Picks 4 matches from round 2
3rd member - Picks 4 matches from round 3
4th member - Picks 4 matches from Qfs, Sfs and Final

Each team member must make at least 1 pick for their round. If they fail to do so in time, the team will effectively 'drop the baton' and be disqualified :lol:.

400m Relay

In this relay, a team of 4 will make their picks for a different round each.
The team will have already decided who will pick first, second, third and fourth.

It will work like this:

1st member - Picks 6 matches from round 1
2nd member - Picks 6 matches from round 2
3rd member - Picks 6 matches from round 3
4th member - Picks 6 matches from Qfs, Sfs and Final

Each team member must make at least 1 pick for their round. If they fail to do so in time, the team will effectively 'drop the baton' and be disqualified :p.

How to committ

- To play in Relays you will need committ yourself. You can only committ yourself as the teams will be decided when all committments have been received.

- As there are 2 relays, you must say which 1 is your preferred choice. So you must committ like this for example:

1. 100m Relay
2. 400m Relay

1 being your preferred choice.

For countries with many players, the highest ranked committed players will be allocated places by their preferences. The remaining committed players from the same country will gain a place in their second choice. The rankings by which these are determined will be the rankings that stand during the same week as the deadline. Only 1 country can enter 1 team in each relay. 4 players are needed to make 1 team.

- When the teams have been decided, it is up to the 4 team members to discuss with eachother and make a decision on an order, and you must send a private or instant message or to andrew_uk stating the order of who will pick 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Please submit your team order by no later then August 14th.

Hope you enjoy this, this should be one of the most enjoyable PAW events :).

Guys, just to clear things up:

I've asked you to do a preference because theres a number of countries in PAW with many players. Only 4 can be on a relay team, and each team can only have 4, so if countries have 9 or more committed players we need a way of deciding who can be in it. For those of you from such countries, dont be too disappointed if u cant get into a relay team, as there will be others who can't, and you can probably join together and form another team. To be honest, I don't think there should be many cases of at least 9 players committing from the same country :lol:

Guys, some of you are not giving a preference. Please don't just say you committ to both. If your in a country with 4 PAW players its likely you will be in both teams (ie Bulgaria etc), but there's some countries who have at least 5 players, and for these, the highest ranked committed players will be placed in both.

Example: Say Indonesia have 6 committed players by the deadline. Every effort will be made to put these players into their 1st preference relay, however, say if they all have the same 1st preference, the top 4 Indonesian players will be given their preference. They will also be in both relays. The 5th and 6th ranked Indonesian will be placed into their 2nd preference relay. If people are prepared to swap, I'm happy to let this happen. But guys, please for now just say your 1st and 2nd preference, we can sort the rest out after the deadline for committments.

Thanks

:wavey:

Countries with many players include: Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, Canada, USA, Great Britain, Israel.

New and Zhao, and to everybody who is going to committ:

*You must give a preference*

You cannot just say you committ to both. Please state your 1st and 2nd preference. I have reasons for this and I've explained them in the instructions (post 1) and in another post again (post 30). Please read these.

Thanks :)

question to Andrew: what happens if only 3 from Bulgaria commit (ghosts, Hantuchov and me) - we will not play or you will put 4th person in the relays?

andrew_uk
Aug 9th, 2004, 07:10 PM
You need 4 ppl for a relay team, please contact sesilfan, dido22, and any other Bulgarians, the relay will start in the 1st round of matches, so lots of countries have lots of organising to do!
