Rikers is a tourney of 10 skilled NA vs 10 skilled Euros.
Teams are chosen by the captain & co-captain (co-captain is chosen by the gu admin captain) for their own team.
Invites are sent via pms on bzbb, gu site, email or by invite on bzflag itself.

Yes, there are subs, but this is not as "casual" an event as something like the ChesVal. Teams choose the strongest players of their respective nation; we play to win! But it's still all in good fun, of course :)

Oh ok so, Constitution ( for me ) If a player cant play the whole thing a sub will be added? By the way how many games are in the Riker Cup?

In general, the 10 players chosen are verified to meet that schedule and only under emergencies is some well-known observer is rushed in to play. Sometimes things happen mid match also, which causes a similar result. Generally both teams choose at least 12 players or so to ensure someone will be there in case to quickly sub in.

Rikers is 10 v 10, yes. But the Riker teams are composed of a larger number of invited players to allow for subs. Last year when I captained the NA team, I believe we had 16 confirmed invited players, iirc.

It's the best of 2 out of 3 matches played one on a Euro and one on a US server. If 3rd match is necessary, winner of 2nd match chooses the server. If at end of 2nd match there is a tie, then winner of 1st match chooses the server for 3rd match.

Need to check your geography, ABGC.
Neither New Zealand nor Australia are North America or Europe.

If anyone is up for making it, I would like to host an image on Planet MoFo's billboards to promote this event, as well as to congratulate the winning team afterwards. Everyone and their brother sees our billboards, would ne nice exposure, and help recruit your teams, perhaps.
