Teams should give feedback in the forums about your opponents regarding the ease of scheduling, showing up as scheduled, ease of match communications, etc. This information will be considered part of the next step to being selected as one of the 48 teams to make the final cut. HINT: Thourugh Feedback, proper use of the forums and timely scheduling is a good thing.

There were 56 teams registered. A few have dropped, a few never even set up teams and some teams are absent or have otherwise eliminated themselves. A few teams have asked to be added, and some teams still do not have full, 10-man rosters, so there will be some open slots for other DC teams to participate in the league.
