Magic - Some Players' Favorite Format

This is the Magic (3 player team) format for 12 kingdoms where communication is restricted to your own team, and only a team victory - 6 regions - is possible.  This is Feudal Chivalry meaning the least experienced team on podium appearances will choose kingdoms first, and non-podium positions get +25,000 gold.

The teams available to be chosen will be:
1.  Elves, Gnomes, Giants
2.  Witchlord, Troll, Demon Princes
3.  Sorcerer, Black Dragon, Dwarves
4.  Warlock, Red Dragon, Dark Elves

With the caveat being, a team may substitute one kingdom for an unselected kingdom, which here are the Underworld, Ranger, and Ancient Ones.  So the team choosing first may sub out one kingdom for one of those 3.  If they do, team choosing 2nd can sub out one for one of the two remaining unassigned.  Etc.  This will require a second check with signup to see if your unselected is still available and if so you get it (you can't fish to see if there were changes). Indicate which kingdom you are dropping to pick up the unassigned, when the time comes.

Sign up here with your team, or sign up as an individual to say you are game to join a team.  This is another good opportunity for newer players to learn from an experienced player, and your inexperience helps your team in selection as well as your starting gold.  You don't claim kingdoms at this point.  This will be a normal pace game (M-F-T). 

Sign up by posting your interest here, and if you can, indicate if you are to be, or are willing to become the team captain, meaning you will lead the draft for your team and be the likely leader on the team in forming strategy.  Hoping we get at least one non-podium player on each team.
Ry Vor could you go over how this is going to work? I am confused how will we know what is available or even what team we got to make a selection. seems only the lowest ranking team has any real choice the way i am reading it.

my suggestion would be have 4 captains designated on the forum as we sign-up.

-The captain would email signup there team and ranking of the 4 possible teams
-support would then email each team captain in order what team they got and allow for 1 change letting them know what 3 kingdoms are available.
-repeat for a total of 4 emails, well 8 if you want to acknowledge the selection.

this way not all the players know the rankings of the players teams and who actually went first also if you pick later you know a change was made but not what team did it because you do not know where you are in the order. You may know your not #1 but likely not much more than that.
I am wiling to put my hat in the ring. It will be a good way to get my feet wet.
I'm in!  Willing to join any team.

Let's skip the second step of subbing out a kingdom.  Captains will just draft their team in reverse order of total team podium appearances, so it won't likely be a secret as to the draft order.  Seemed like it might be cool but I guess their are complications.
I'll join. Sign me up as a captain ... I have two teammates in mind.
I am willing to play as well as captain or teammate. Would be happy I take Imperial_Tark and GreyHawk as teammates if they are willing. My only condition is no quiting.
Oh captain, my captain. Quitting isn't in my vocabulary! count me in for Team GreyFistTark or Team Imperial JumpingHawk or Team "a Gnome, a Dragon brigade, and the Witchlord walk into a bar...."
Why are the teams pre-set?

Drafting is one of the most enjoyable/defining aspects of the team format.

I have no problem with any particular kingdoms being excluded from any particular contest.  But pre-set teams appears to be a less sexy form of the contest.

Just curious . . .
