You could of course let natural selection take place, i.e. let people chose the armies they want and still have to swap with opponent, that way it doesn't matter if some people gravitate towards super Buyids and the like, as they'll still likely lose half the games if they're not used to handling more elegant but less powerful armies. Let free will take its course.

Haha, I don't think Pete meant it that way, but it'll certainly intensify the competition in my pool :P

I think I should've did what I did the first few tournaments and pick the most competitive, fun list for each nation instead of trying to force some historical accuracy in by lining up time periods in a shallow way. The intent of the initial tournament was to familiarize myself with the armies of that book so I think I'll continue that.

As many players have quickly completed their games and FOG 2.0 not likely to wipe out the existing games on the server in the near future, players can begin their second pool stage matches. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to sit and wait so everyone may as well play the rest of the players in their pool. If FOG 2.0 does wipe existing games off server during this stage, we will adjudicate them as best as possible and just be grateful the new version is out.

I've adjusted the dates by a week to account for the current speed of games and lack of new players in most of the pools.
