Lancelot:
I want to see enough players here who want to fight.

And I will wait

Deadcode:
Okay, I'm in, but what is a cup? This site doesn't even explain it, it assumes you already know what a cup is. What's the difference between a tournament and a cup?

MonkeyIsland:
There are pretty much the same except that a cup is consist of group stage and knockout stage. A tournament is only the knockout stage. TUS started with cups which allowed members to play their games on whatever date/time they agreed on. (within the deadline date of course)

Tournaments got added later to be like Worm Olympics tournaments. That is when every player in #AG is ready to go so there won't be any need to arrange date/time for their games. That was the initial idea and it worked for some time. But after that when the inactivity of players increased,  some moderators allowed their players to arrange time/date for their tournament games.

Lancelot:
It seemed to me that only a lazy or a complete beginner does not know the difference between a cup and a tournament. Deadcode question surprised me lol

Speaking specifically about this cup, i will say more - in the coming months, I will not limit the games in groups by time.
So I will expect the players to be as punctual as possible regarding their matches in groups. and then to the playoffs

He's right thought. The Cups help page isn't clear for newcomers. When I coded the cups, members were used to forum-based cups  that is posting cup results via cup thread on forums.
