Well, if there is such an overwhelming level of support that players would drop to add the arrogant Hooru,who has had plenty of time to join, then no one should drop. Stop inventing false crises and ignoring the shitty principle in play here. The people who joined are all active players. There is no reason to think only a handful of players will play regularly. There's been ample time to sign up, and the captains have picked their teams from the pool. Maybe offer to help tourney in other ways (there are some stats I'd like to count, but they would involve watching every game because they are action/tactics stats rather than things that are counted in final screenshot score. Help with this would be nice).
But if Turgon wants to add him to the existing teams, I'll just follow Mrmot's suggestion and also force my way in, on his team, to keep the numbers balanced. Not that I can play much, so there still will be an imbalance.
Why can't you just be a spectator Hooru, particularly since you don't like 2v2 much anyway? Especially with all that sea nuking. Why the lag in sign up? Did you just get out of prison?
