Well it never took off over on the AVL site, so Dawg Pound Investigations is proud to announce that we will be holding a tournament. lilangel and myself have been working the past few weeks to get enough teams interested and finally have them together. If all goes well, there will be more tournaments to follow which we will make open to all agencies. Our tournament will begin on Monday, April 14 and will be 4 or 5 rounds. details can be viewed here:

Any questions feel free to PM me. We will also use this thread for any trash talking that the players want to begin with. Let the fun begin! :-D

I agree with Secret_Squirrel. Now at least 18 people are waiting for his capturing. This IS a pressure which is never good. :(

Capturing after the 6th day we cannot earn any points, so there is no sense to wait for him if Wish on a Star is able to make another team for tomorrow, and everybody feel good if we can start the new round and SS can finish his hunt at his own speed and in his own time.

I apologize if I offended you Secret Squirrel. I was attempting to make a joke about the fact that we both scored -0- for our team. I was told this was a post that "teasing" was encouraged, perhaps I misunderstood.

If everyone wants to start tomorrow that's fine with me. I agree e with SS as well, I just want to be sure that everyone can get a team in ok and that everyone can play. The Wed start date was tentative.

That being said, in order for us to start tomorrow that means we need team starters in sometime today, I will be on and off throughout the day and I can't speak for lil but as long as the teams are in, it's a go. Match ups for round two are:

Shaded Legends vs Sirens

The Intelligence Agency vs Sirens

Wish upon a Star vs Dawg Pound Investigations

Please watch this thread for an official posting of start dates, tomorrow may not be good for everyone.

Thanks again to all who have participated

The site had been updated to reflect Round 1 finishes, the bracket will be updated shortly, I've also added a standings page

Oops, my mistake, Sirens does not have 2 matches!

The Intelligence Agency will be playing Endeavour Investigations.

Thanks to Aknas for pointing out my mistake! ;-)

Just wanted to say that tomorrow is much better for me as a start date than Wed, but if it can't be sorted in time never mind. I'm logging off for the day now but will go and sit in Shangri-La drinking tea just in case.

nah nah pittypat. *blushes* skimmed right over what you said lol.

I was just concerned that some newbie who had jumped in and joined a team didn't have an overt amount of pressure placed on them and have the experience ruined. I thought the 5 person roster was a great idea to make sure that if someone, say, got mowed down by a bus there would be people to cover them, and I couldn't understand why that very functional aspect wasn't being utilized, that's all :)

Hunting should be fun... well as fun as removing limbs without anesthetic can be :D

Good luck to all in the next round :)

heh next month see me and pittypat battle it out over a 12 hunt grudge match spanning the next decade :D

I'll be standing in for ML for Endeavour.

I take no prisoners.
Or
I do take prisoners

Whichever is worse ;)

Ok all, here's the deal. A few things came up that we didn't foresee. Remember this is our first time doing this. I welcome any and all constructive criticism. We dropped the ball for the start of Round 2 and there are some that can't start tomorrow now so the start will be on Wed. (I'd have liked to have started tomorrow as well FWIW)

Bottom line is this is almost like a Beta tourney, we can work out the kinks for future tourneys. All criticism will be accepting by me as long as it doesn't say things like "you suck", "Hey pinhead" , you get the idea.

Things I do like to see though are "Hey ctown, I have a girl for you", Hey ctown, I want to give you money" ;-)

Apologies for any confusion with this all, I agree with SS that it is supposed to be fun!
