Hey everyone, this is the official sign-up thread for CPL Season 4! For those of you who don't know, the Coach Pupil League is a StarCraft community designed to help lower to mid level players improve in a competitive team league format. Every season groups of players team up under the tutelage of experienced coaches and compete against each other over several weeks before entering into the playoffs, and eventually a finals! If you'd like more information you can always check out our Liqupedia pages or view games from previous seasons on the CPL YouTube Channel. With no minimum requirement to join, the CPL is a great place to learn the game and get your start at StarCraft. If you already have some BroodWar experience but not sure how to improve next, it's the perfect place to take your game to the next level!

While teamliquid will be used for some things, it's recommeneded you also join the CPL Discord as a lot of the communication for the league will be done there.

What players can expect:
1. The opportunity to play up to one match a week vs an opponent of similar skill.
2. You do not have to participate every week.
3. You do not have to play at a specific time, but arranging to pre-play matches is up to you and your opponent.
4. Higher level players are expected to spend time assisting their team mates.
5. There are no minimum time requirements for participating, but the more you put into the CPL the more you get out of it!
What coaches can expect:
1. To spend some time to prepare your team members for their weekly matches.
2. All teams will have more than one coach to help with the time commitment.
3. Full autonomy in how they want to coach their players.
4. No requirements to handle team management (line-ups, substitutions, etc)
If you want to sign up for season 4, please provide the following information in this thread:
1. StarCraft account name you will be using in CPL
2. Discord account you will be joining the discord with. (Please use a discord screen name that is the same or similar as the one you will be playing on, this will help everyone!)
3. Coach or Player
4. Approximate MMR (if you haven't laddered on remastered you can use your old iccup rank/when that was, or best guess.)
5. Main Race/Matchups if race picker
6. (optional) If you have interest in volunteering for any admin work (team organization, liquipedia, casting, etc)
7. (optional) Any additional info such as if you have a couple players you'd like to play with or a certain team**.
**Please note that we can't guarantee anything as there are a number of factors that go into team creation.
Once again I'd like to remind everyone there is no minimum requirement to sign up, and this is a great place to learn, even if you've never played a game of BroodWar. Last season we had a soft cutoff of around 1900MMR for players, this will be subject to change this season depending partially on sign-ups.
I look forward to seeing you around the league this season!
