First an update: due to circumstances outside my control, I am now the sole organizer of Sky League. As such, adjustments to the tournament structure were necessary. Sky League is now a six week, single elimination tournament; I have included a graphic of the new single elimination bracket stage, which will take place after the group stage. Now on to group assignment!

With 21 teams we have four groups of four and one group of five (the "megagroup"). The first two groups will play on March 22nd, the following three groups will play on the 29th. Each group is a mini double elimination bracket consisting of five matches (Group E is seven), with each match being a best of one on the designated map. Two teams will advance from each group to the bracket stage, and each team will play a minimum of two matches in their group.

[!] Captains: Be sure you are on Skype at the beginning of each tournament day, as it will be used for event coordination purposes. I have included time conversion links so your players can double check what time they are playing: Groups A & B (3/22), Groups C, D, & E (3/29). If you know you are unable to play your scheduled match, please contact me as soon as possible.

Wouldn't it make more sense to do A, B and C in week 1, then D and E in week 2? That way it's 15 matches in one week and 12 in the other, rather than 10 and 17 (17 just seems like a bit much).

I know this is a silly request for a few individuals, but could you find some way to move the Gents to a later week's start? I just lost my good friend and engineer timmyb to cancer, I'm going to try and stay competitive but I simply cannot this week and neither can my team. We are too devestated by the loss.

Switching group A and group E would help even out the days and meet Byron's request.

Good idea!

I'm sorry man, pass my best thoughts to everyone involved.

The Gents and Zill's Merry Men have swapped groups. The graphics have been updated to reflect this.

Do the Hatters not want a week change as well given the circumstances?

quite some matches for a single evening - will they be executed parallel or sequentially?

Each group will be recorded by a different person and run in parallel.
