Rationale:

This format has been chosen for two main reasons:

One, to maintain an element of imperfect knowledge and tension in the colalition whilst removing most potential for camp change (the number one complaint regarding the multi-player game)

Two, by having everyone play each power once any balance issues between the powers should be cancelled out.

As an aside this compliments rather than conflicts with the 5 player format played FtF at WBC.
 

Preliminary Round Drawing:

This will be as random as possible, Individuals will not play the same opponent twice before the semis, therefore each will play three 3 player games against 6 different opponents total.

 However preferences for Vassal/Cyberboard, non-move file/move file use will be accommodated where possible.
