The top squad competition is a team event that
will be an ongoing competition in the club. The competitors will be
"squads" of four players with one player on each squad being
designated the squad leader and one the assistant squad leader. These squads
will be assigned to the German or Allied side with each squad choosing their
force type. The members of the squads will assign their squad a name to make
it even more fun.
The competition will consist of every squad on
the German side playing every squad on the Allied side with the squad from
each side winning the most matches meeting in the championship to become the Top
Squad. When the competition is over we will start again (assuming
there is still interest) with any existing squads that wish to participate as
well as adding any new squads that wish to sign up.
This is not considered a Band of Brothers
tournament as far as the Club Champion competition goes, but
the winners will earn tournament champion medals and everyone participating
will earn a ribbon. The battles will count as official Band of Brothers games
as far as rankings and stats are concerned.
This competition uses handicapped scoring so it
is only open to members who have completed five games and have been assigned a
rank. Since the matches will be handicapped I'm going to allow members to sign
up as squads if they wish, thus enabling friends to be on the same squad. If
you want to participate and have no preference who is on your squad then you
may sign up as an individual and as soon as there are four individual players
signed up they'll create a squad.
How does it all work? Well
I'll use two squads as an example.
