Previous mappools

Who is selecting beatmaps in the first stages of the tournament? since it is best of 3 and mod play is allowed one captain could chose 2 songs

in what order?
FR Team:
Wow Color you made me think that Sync posted.
I'll captain the USA team. Just putting that out there. :v

No offense to past captains but we need to get our shit together. :p

EDIT: Please see this post: p/1879216
reserving spot.

I'll be Norway captain this year too, I guess
I'm going to be the captain of the Finnish team, prepare for some delicious drama~
For this tournament, please, make sure that there is a ranking chart frequently updated. It is not pleasant to search through the posts to see who won a week ago :?

@Hanyuu YOu should read the OP. Apparantly, we don't have a mapset selector, yet :P

And srsly. Stop spamming. I don't feel like wiping out this thread every time. It's easier for me to restrict your posting privileges in this forums.
isn't Hidden an inappropriate mod?
[Edit] Talked to farto; gonna do my best on helping with the map selection process. I have a lot of map lists already, gonna sort out and provide the best for everyone to enjoy.
