Count me in - I took the pledge in the other thread a while back, but will proclaim it again if necessary...

Glad to see action on this - thanks for jump starting it.

It'll probably start around about August/September time. We'll decide that when people start signing up.

Probably 48/24/24 unless anyone wants it longer in their games.

I, Bam207, do hereby pledge, by my free will, without any duress being applied to be, and being of sound mind, in the witness of the Mods and gamers of this forum, that I will commit myself to winning this game outright to the best of my ability. Should one of the seven prove to be an Oathbreaker in this regard, I will spurn all talks of enacting a draw and will dutifully fight until no such draw can take place. Should a stalemate occur and all players agree, I will continue to seek a solo win for as long as this is possible. If it proves impossible, and all players agree, then there will be no winner for this game and I will not ever claim to have won it. I pledge to not surrender, and continue active participation in the shoutbox if I should be defeated, as I continue to have a vote in the stalemate agreement.

I prefer 48 for build phase, but 24 is OK.

Look forward to playing in this, thanks for starting it!

Balls... Looks fun but I know it wont finish before I have to take a hiatus. So, there is interest of one more should you decide to do this again in the fall.

Oh, I already do this but still...

Keep me posted if this becomes more common.

If it's not starting until August, I'm definitely in.

I, Nermal, do hereby pledge, by my free will, without any duress being applied to be, and being of sound mind, in the witness of the Mods and gamers of this forum, that I will commit myself to winning this game outright to the best of my ability. Should one of the seven prove to be an Oathbreaker in this regard, I will spurn all talks of enacting a draw and will dutifully fight until no such draw can take place.

I pledge to not surrender, and continue active participation in the shoutbox if I should be defeated, as I continue to have a vote in the stalemate agreement.

BTW, shouldn't the first part read "I, Nermal, do hereby pledge, by my free will, without any duress being applied to me" rather than to "be??" Consider it pledged either way.

Oooh, tempting.

Question: I'm not premium yet (I've been holding off pulling that trigger for the moment for various reasons including convincing friends to go premium with me so we can play some variants). Would you need me to go premium now. or would my current non-Premium status be acceptable as long as I upgraded before the start of the tournament?
