Here's what I've decided to do in order to close the sign up process and let the 2017 season start.
We have only 11 players, a minimun of 12 was required. I've decided to re-admit by default one of the 2016 players and I've picked -Ph51- for various reasons. Phil had the best career, did show up late last year at the beginning of the season and hasn't posted anything after the password mess. All the others have been around and/or opened my reminder by PM, so it's a safe guess they are not interested anymore.
With Phil in, 4 pairs have been confirmed, 4 players were left without a doubles partner.
Princess Fiona & Leif
Alexander_19 & MattB123
Fiona and Matt will bring to their new pair one half of the points earned in the 2016 season with the previous partner.
With Phil in, 3 teams have been confirmed, 3 teams were left without a second player.
Alexander_19 joins Rocketta in the USA team
Oizo joins Princess Fiona in the EU team
Leif and MattB123 join the Newbies team
Let me know if you agree with these decisions and, if you don't, please bring your own ideas in order to let the 2017 season start as soon as possible.
