I'll use more specific generation, and class people based on the level I give them. Two from each would be a fairly good idea tbh.

But you also said this. It should be 2-2-2, in order of skill level. If not that, at least close. You told me you'd balance it if need be.

Jack mix Group 4 up with another group please. Why would you put Steam and Demise in the same group? They'll just win and go to the 1v1 ffs.

I clearly stated that, due to the balance of the members, it was entirely random. And Jack, it was randomly generated as I said before. Now stop breaking rule 5…

Just because it was randomly generated doesn't mean it's fair. You should see the imbalance here.

Remember, I said

I think we can all agree Groups 1 and 4 are too imbalanced (especially Group 4) and need to be mixed with Groups 2 and 3.

It just looks like a harder group to be in. But that's just my opinion. Group 4 is objectively hard.

Not only that I haven't been on in so long that this gives me an unfair advantage. ._.

However, think of the 'novice' class. They will start to complain. So, they will be reshuffled by me and constantly randomised until they're somewhat balanced.

If you're in Group 1, let me know what days are good for you and when you'll be available so we can all sort something out.

For Group 4, I am available for that day; however, for anyone who's in that group, who isn't please say if you can't. I have some things that I've been going on that I might be not able to make it after the 3rd.

Wait, Behemoth, you need to divie up these groups into sets of 3 before we organize dates.. There's no way we'll be able to get 6 people together at the same time. And how do we determine who plays who?

Well four have appeared for group 4, which is on January 3rd. The matches will be decided via, once again, a random generator.

I know, but you need to tell everyone what two people they'll be playing in the 1v1v1, because otherwise all 6 people will arrive and be like "uhh.. who plays who". Plus it'd go much quicker if 2 sets of 3 people could decide on their time and meet, than 6 people having to all meet at once.

So the 1v1v1 players is best to be decided upon earlier than later.
