    Thanks for the invite Dri, looking forward to getting back into it.

    Will the pairings be random, or will we try to match skill levels? (ie, Fearless vs high skill and not vs one of the first timers).

    I'm shaking in my boots.

    actually, in a bracket you want the highest seeded/skilled people battling the lowest seeded/skilled people in the early rounds. this prevents heavyweights like gerbick and fearless from going up against each other early on. this is the way all brackets work (football, basketball, etc.) this also makes the road continually harder as your progress through each round. barring an upset (which WILL happen), a participant should
    be facing tougher and tougher opponents as the tourney goes on. if heavyweights meet early on (some getting eliminated), they could then have a cakewalk to the final four.

    take a look at this page:
    http://cbs.sportsline.com/collegebas...ectingtheseeds
    see how the #1 seed (the best team) plays the #16 seed (the worst team) in each quad of the bracket. then look what happens to the seeds...see how the #1 and #2 seeds are kept apart until the very end...?

    Ah, these boys is all swelled up. So this was earlier...getting set to trade. Then, woooaaah differences.

    Ah. I supposed I was just looking at it from a 'Well, at least this way new people don't get creamed at the start' kind of way. But I completely agree with you Nords.

    I suppose there are alot of us that will be gone in the first round .

    don't be like that dawg! bracketville is all ABOUT the upset. remember, people vote on this...it's not some sort of objective scoring. the wisdom of crowds is a powerful, yet unpredictable, beast.

    if possible could we get a thread going with all of these new people so we can get a general idea of your skills for the seeding process?

    Thats cool, I didn't know it was based on voting. I kinda like it that way. Instead of going with a point system.
