    Based on the ill-fated CoD2 Nation's Cup which was a non-starter because of the crap Live implementation of the game, back by public demand (cheers Paramount!) the Nations' Cup Rises from the ashes in its new form of GRAW!!

    Just a friendly for fun round robin OR (depending on number of teams) cup style tournament where we can team up with each other and KILL!!!!

    Due to the MP limitations for hosting, I think it's best to limit the teams to a maximum of 5 per side. This may be adjusted down to 4 depending on participants available.

    Note: This tournament isn't intended to be only for those who think they are gaming pros or "733t"!! It's primary objective is for fun, so please don't be put off participating if you're still learning the game or don't consider yourself to be a gaming god :smashin:

    Post in this thread if you're interested. Please state your location and if you have an upload speed of greater than 256k. I'll update team pools as we go and I'll make up a schedule and outline the rules when we have enough interest to get going. At the moment I'm thinking the best game mode for this is team elimination, playing a total of 4 rounds and so that each team can choose a favourite map and each map is played twice - once from each starting location so as to be completely fair.

    *** IF YOU HAVE WELSH OR IRISH BUDDIES GIVE THEM A PROD!!! ***

    Team Pools so far:

    Scotland: SaltireOne; Digadood; Sy Doc; Henke7; ManFromDelMonte; AloysianFire; chippymintin
    England (N): DCJ197; daveblade93; Schizoid; Hitman; T800; Delbert25
    England (S): HermanChristoph; Knyghtbyte; Jay D78; Starfleets; Paramount Signs; South Patch uk; StealthyRabbit; Ovany; TomTub; ADC68
    Wales: LanellliJack
    Ireland N&S: monkeyleader

    Hmm, fight talk eh? :)

    "You laugh now, but wait till you hear us in the lobby when we own you. Alot of those players in the South are pretty good you know.

    P.S. When are we going to do this? Tonight? We can make a spreadsheet. A column for KILLS FOR, KILLS AGAINST and TOTAL FOR REGION.

    We do the first two colums individually and the 3rd, well we add up all their scores.

    I'm going to print screen a draft version now. This can easily be recorded in the After game lobby although it could take some time recording these with a careful eye.
