its never too late; actually Round 10 will start later this evening
you have been placed on Team C: The Celestial Crusaders. Normally, FireBender is the captain of this team but is currently on leave due to RL issues. TheGreatEmperor and Noctilucus have just been named as of today, as Co-Captains.
Here's the absolute basics of what you need to know:
You can play a rounds settings as much as you want and submit to the MV, but you can make only ONE submission to that round's discussion thread. Its usually wise to discuss with your team before submitting the game to the actual league.
It is ALWAYS better to submit a Losing game than No Game at all. A game win of the wrong victory type (ie an influence victory when the round calls for a conquest) will still net your team 1pt. It also shows your teammates that they can count on you to play.
ASK QUESTIONS! If you run into problems with a game, either because you're not used to the round setup, or how somethign works in the MVL itself, we can't help you, if we don't know. The team private forums, and the round discussion threads are just full of information waiting to be gleaned for use. We're a very helpful bunch.
