Although I haven't been active in FOG II until now, I have league ranking from before if that helps.

I am very hopeful that we are going to get two pools of twelve this time so all the new players to FOG2 will be able to play in Pool B. :wink:

Count me in!

Count me in! Preference for 1600 points.

1. German 888-932 AD
2. Norman 923-1040 AD
3. Anglo-Danish 1017-1041 AD w/Welsh 600-1049 AD allies
4. Byzantine 988-1041 AD w/Georgian 1008-1049 AD allies

(Armies checked 22/9, OK, Season 8: Viking/Scots - stockwellpete)

One minor point - it looks like the list of armies in the first post might be out of date. It has the following Anglo-Saxon lists:

Anglo-Saxon 600-949 AD
Anglo-Saxon 950-1016 AD

But in game, there are three covering this time period - 600-870 AD, 871-949 AD, and 950-1016 AD. Just thought I'd point it out, these aren't my picks.

Thanks, list amended now - stockwellpete

Classical Antiquity and Biblical are already full and we are only 2 places away from filling the first pool of the Themed Event. That is really excellent in just 2 days. We have 46 players for Late Antiquity so far and 41 for Early Middle Ages so there are still plenty of vacancies in these sections. We can accommodate up to 60 players, but I think I will need to say that once we reach 50 further recruitment will be provisional until we reach 56 players. If we get up to that number then I will open up the sixth division and recruitment can stay open beyond the opening date of the tournament if necessary. It also looks like we have a very good shout at getting two pools for the Themed Event for the first time since Season 1.

I am expecting more players to sign up over the weekend and more again when I send the reminder invitation out early next week. And then we usually get more players approaching as the tournament gets underway.
