Reminder to all teams and players
TPG Euro Season 05
Season 6 or no?
Are the Euro's interested in having a Season 6? or is there no interest anymore?
as you might have seen, a big proportion of teams died during the break inbetween regular season and playoffs, so with this happening i had to ff those teams today leaving nearly no time to scheduling semis for today.
either way i hope that the teams which have been proceeded due to an ff win are at least half way active and can manage to play their semis sometimes untill next sunday 8pm gmt.
I hope that we can arange for finals being played next sunday at 8pm gmt or slightly later to stay at least half way on schedule, so whoever the team are that proceed into finlas may should be ready to play at that time.

S33 Playoff maps
The last day to vote on S33's playoff maps is almost here! The poll will auto close on 01-27-2014 at 09:32 PST. Be sure to get your votes in by then!
Week 4 & 5
Due to the upcoming holidays there are some slightly changes regarding default time/date for Week 4 matches, that's why week 4 and 5 are already scheduled.
This means you get untill 5th of January for Week 4, respective 11th of January for Week 5 to play your matches.
Week 4 Matches default time/date has been moved to 5th of January 7.00 pm GMT, while week 5 is on the regular schedule (5th of January 8.00 pm GMT).
If you want to use the holidays to make up forefits (due to the fact that they have lower point counts for playoff seeds then played matches) the team captain or scheduler can open a support ticket (best if both teams regarding this open one), then either me or bnzr will open the scheduling and reporting option on the tpg page.
I wanna use this opportunity to also remind all team captains and scheduler to use the scheduler of the TPG page because that's what determines decissions in scheduling disputes (there are no chat logs or emails accepted as evidence).
As you might have seen i've mentioned bnzr as admin above, he'll be effective immediatley joining me in administrating TPG europe.
I want to remind everybody to use match com at least 24hrs prior to default match time to schedule your match (team captains and designated scheduler can do this).
You'll find the match com by using the following links: Season Matches (under Team Panel) -> Schedule -> set a time (be carefule and watch the timezone setting) -> propose match
if something is already proposed accept or decline and put in a time and date of your liking.
Due to the huge response on default match time majority may decide on this one.
What do you want as default match time?

TPG Europe Update
TPG Min Rates
TPG is looking for Euro Admins
TPG is looking to pick up some new Euro Admins. The Euro league will run in tandem with the regular 6v6 League again and we will need some Euro admins to schedule matches and handle the basic disputes/tickets. If you feel like you can volunteer your time and would like to help out, please email me with a properly filled out Admin Application.
New Support Site
TPG has a new and improved Support Site and we will start using it today. This new Support System is more powerful and offers more features for the Admins and AC Admins. You must be logged into your TPG Account before it will allow you to view the support site. If you are not logged in, it will redirect you to the TPG website until it verify's your credentials. We've also made it so that it pre-fills some of your information from the TPG database and we will continue to add more to this as time goes on.
Here are the seeds
New for this season is that john aka nhoj helps out making the schedules, so that it gets out in time. So from this day on you contact him if you have any schedule related questions. Here is his steam profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/nhojsk/
We are starting a Double elimination tournament on sunday instead of having a shorter season.
For those that dont know what a double elimination tournament looks like can take a look at this link.
It basicly means that the 1st seed play the 8th seed, 2nd seed vs 7th seed etc. All of the teams that looses their first match have a new shot of reaching the final by playing the lower bracket. The winner of the lower bracket plays the looser in the upper bracket semifinal, to compete for the spot in the final.
We will schedule the matches for you here on TPG so you wont really have to know how the bracket works. Just know that if you lose a game you get one more chance to proceed playing.
Schedules will be out shortly.
TPG.EU Season 4
This will happen. Dont worry. It's all about finding a good start date. Be patient, enough with the gathers. Find real wars. Get the hype started.
We will somehow connect to the american season and have a shorter one. I'm not allowed to start a season whenever I want. It needs to end at the same time the american one ends. And I didnt see the use of starting our season when they started in earlie august.
Get clans to apply for the league. Spread the word.
