I didnt see a link to sign up for the Tournament of Coalitions, but I'm sure you can contact one of the guys in charge to get access to the forum and get signed up. Non "coalition" teams are usually welcome as well.Originally posted by GmanV2
Instead of talking tough in the forums, put your groups mettle to the test and get the bragging rights you think you deserve. Join the Season 27 TOC Challenge, TOC IX, and try to knock off the defending Champs Black Sea Society. The Deadline to enter is Day -1
This is the Tourney to prove your group of teams is the best in GLB or if you are a loner, you can beat all of the coalitions and claim your age group. We limit each coalition to 12 teams, but they can enter as many 12 team groups as they want. You can enter as few as 1 team and a maximum of 12 teams. This Tourney covers Casual and Regular from Pee Wee on up to World League. Pick your 12 teams wisely, every point counts.
Have your group leader PM GmanV2 to get invited to the battle. It is the responsibility of the leader to make sure all teams are entered properly in their brackets, once the brackets are set they will not be changed. Enter your teams by Day -1, check your teams and respond by Day 0, Day 1 brackets will be locked, Day 1/2 the Tourney begins. All are expected to abide by reasonable standards of good sportsmanship, not doing so can possibly result in the rescinding of your coalitions ability to compete.

1 point - 1st place in 4 brackets; 2nd place in 8 brackets; 3rd place in 16 brackets; 4th place in 32 brackets; 5th - 8th place in 64 brackets
Exact Breakdown of points calculation:
4: 1-6 teams - 1 point
8: 7-11 teams - 2 points
16 12-24 teams - 3 points
32: 25-47 - 4 points
48+ : 6 points
So, a basic rule of 25% shall be enforced on each age level for the % of each coalition in a particular bracket.
For instance, in a bracket of 4, 1 team from any given coalition, bracket of 8, 2 teams from any given coalition, bracket of 16, 4 teams, etc...
There are 23 total potential brackets, counting casual, regular and peewee. With that in mind, we shall restrict each coalition to no more than 12 teams, so choose which team will represent your coalition wisely.
