Subj: Team randomization for those who missed out

Team registrations are closing 45 minutes after this post. For those of you having trouble forming a team, you may want to read this before you enter a team of two, or yourself.

For those of you who missed out on forming a team, we have a compromise. Add yourself to the TEAM AVAILABLE list using TEAM ADD AVAILABLE <POKER|QUIZ|CHAMPIONS>. Then 24 hours from now, we'll run a randomizer to form teams using one person from each category.

When one of the lists is exhausted, the largest list will lose a random person to fill in the empty spot, and the teams will keep forming like that. Sadly this means that if we end with one or two people at the very end, they'll be in a team of one or two. That's just luck of the draw, I'm afraid!

Please note that this will be entirely random. You may end up with people you hate, with people from the opposite tether, or people who just plain suck. We won't be adjusting anything, or giving you a larger share of the prizes because you feel you did more work. That said, you will be expected to do your best to actually participate in what you are set for (unless you were unlucky enough to be reassigned due to list exhaustion), but your team gets nothing to hold against you for failing horribly or having RL complications.

To reiterate, add yourself to the available list within the next 24 hours, and we'll throw you into a randomized team.
