I've started the tournament!! I'll start another one later, and I'll be more open about it, like I'll accept other countries part of Britain, or UK. Sorry about that!

Good luck everyone! Hope you enjoy it!

    If both players get one win each, will the highest ranked player go through?  Rubbish

    The fact that you have kicked Scottish people out of this tournament is actually offensive. Scottish people are part of the UK, they have fought and died alongside the English, Welsh and Northern Irish people and the fact that you think the UK is synonymous with Englishness is beyond belief.

    no, seems like it's a misnomer, how about "English unites"?

    I don't get it, is United Kingdom a country in Britain???

    Hmm...it was meant for people that were actually British and living in Britain.

    Does Scotland get a mention?

    I know what countries do make up both, and thanks for the spell check, I always confuse that a and i.

    And sorry, you have to be in Britain, not visit there.

    What you could do, Mr Tournament Director, is spell Britain correctly. Also you could look up on wikipedia what countries make up Great Britain and what countries make up the United Kingdom.
