I think we will take at least 1 more week discussing everything out, then we will make schedules and rules (3-5 more days) and then 2 more weeks for sing-ups. So I think we can expect CCup to start in May only.
which is fine, but im guessing july and august would be problematic(most likely second round), cause ppl will start going on holidays and will ask to have second round start in september. then beofre third round starts, we will have talks about new year and christmas holidays(in which case they will not ask you or me anything, even though our christmas is in january
), and we will be lucky to finish CC3 before end of 2013
because of this, i think we should follow some kind of schedule. im guessing 2 months is more then enough for 40 games to finish.(hell, we are active for 3 months now, and we will finish our second clan war, 41 and 61 games, no more then 2 weeks from now... and in the same time we were dealing with CL and have half of the clan freemiums). so set the schedule. first round starts May 1st. second round(32 teams overall) starts july 1ts. third round(16 teams) starts semptember 1st. when we enter round 4, and have 8 clans remaining, they can drag a bit if they like(and god knows they will drag it to infinity... )... and while those teams finishing CC3, clans can enter CC4 at the beginning of 2013.
we do the format where remaining of clan world(all clans minus top 8 from CC3) will participate to get top 8 teams. after those, lets call them qualifications, are over we will have 8 "winners" and 8 teams from CC3 who will decide who is the winner of CC4... ofc, after CC3 and first part of CC4 are over, we can have some kind of break(1-2 months) before continuing...
this way, we could have all clans participating in future, and having chance to be competitive instead of being blown out by top clans in first round. in same time, top clans would still have to win 4 challenges in a row to win a (perfect) C Cup, and have some vacation between clan events.
