The fourth annual BPA March Madness PBeM Tournament is scheduled to begin October 15th. Come join the fun in this quick and easy play by email tournament.
All games will be played using the ACTS March Madness module. ACTS (http://acts.warhorsesim.com/index.asp) is free to join. Please familiarize yourself with the ACTS March Madness module before starting tournament play.
All entrants in this event will receive two teams, one in each bracket. That ensures that each player gets to play at least two games. The brackets are set up so a player who drafts low in one bracket gets to draft high in the other bracket. The brackets are currently set up to handle 40 entrants, but will be adjusted to handle however many sign up.
As always, we are indebted to Stuart Tucker for his efforts in adding last year’s Sweet Sixteen teams to the collection, allowing me to include more teams in the event which are close to each other in rating.

If you wish to inspect some of the teams to be used in this tournament, see the teams page at:
Note that the teams have both a rating and an adjusted rating. The rating is the official team rating, like you see on the team cards. The adjusted rating is the rating which then increases when a team wins a game in a tournament and decreases when it loses a game. Thus a team with an adjusted rating higher than its rating has had past success in this tournament.

As always, you must be a BPA member to join. If you went to more than one day of the WBC this year, you are already such a member.
