The templates used should be between 100 and 300 territories and be within the spirit of the competition. You will not be able to change your template once the competition begins. And you should post it here in advance so it can be checked by people for fairness.
There wasn't much discussion about templates in the discussion thread I'd definitely like to hear more views before we start. Penalties are included by using the auto distribution setting for tie-breaks after the group stage. I know this is unfair, so are penalties in football! You do have the chance still to win over two legs by not losing. :)
Hauptmann Knauff will be helping with making a mini ELO to divide group players who finish with the same points.
For performance over the competition I will be awarding ranking points to seed players in later competitions based on UEFA's coefficients. (minus the award for national team performance) You get seeding points for:
Group stage participation 4
Group stage win 2
Round of 16 participation 5
and finals 1
Over 5 years performance this gives the coefficient. A players seeding is derived from this.http://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/uefarankings/club/index.html
