T89 Begins, and DST Change

This season we have 16 teams competing across 4 sections. All sections will play a 6-round double round-robin. We shall then have a tournament-wide bye, followed by the playoffs in round 7.

Also, I want to remind players that while daylight saving time ends in Europe this weekend, FICS server time will not change until next weekend. Specifically, on Sunday, November 5th, 02:00 EDT will become 01:00 EST. Please be mindful of these changes.

As always, new players are encouraged to read the Player's Handbook, which can be found under the Documents tab. Most importanty, remember to set your password via FICS, using the command "tell teamleague set password", and start all teamleague games with "tell teamleague play".

Game negotiations must take place in the Game Forum (http://teamleague.org/LightNEasy.php?page=newgf), where a portal will appear at the start of the round, on Tuesday at 22:00, server time. Please use server times when making offers (using the 24 hour clock is also preferred), and make at least 3 initial offers on more than one day. Server time is EDT, and can always be seen on FICS by using the "date" command. The Initial Contact Deadline is Thursday at 22:00, while the Contact or Forfeit Deadline is Friday at 22:00.

Captains may add new players until the beginning of round 6, so long as the average of the 4 highest-rated players does not exceed the cap shown next to each section, on the teams page. Requests to add players can be done via the Captains Page, however any change requests should be sent a day ahead of the start of a round, to guarantee that they have time to be processed.

Questions are always welcome in channel 101, or can be sent by FICS message to the TeamLeague account.
