I have waited a while to do the next round since first the UKSHL was running and I didn't want them to clash, then I assumed everyone was too busy smurfing and prepping for worlds. But now that that's done let's try to get more games played in SHL8 then the previous round and continue the upwards trend of the league
To take part, please create or have a Stimhack account (which you don't need to use, but it gives me a point of contact in case of dispute).
I'll give an introduction for anyone who isn't aware of what it is (veterans can skip ahead to section labeled skip to here). You play other people in the league and record your results on challenge boards. You find games by either joining the Stimhack slack channel #shl, or just creating a game and saying Stimhack League or SHL in the title. Then confirm your opponent is in the league (there has been a problem with non-leaguers joining, please be polite). After playing your game, the winning person records your results on the challenge boards. At the end of the league, the top 4 players will have a 4 person playoff that will likely be streamed, with the winner being crowned champion.
Newer players are welcome, just be aware that this is a competitive league with people who will be netdecking. If that appeals to you, we'd love to have you even if you don't feel you're a great player. Anyone who wants to improve as a competitive player is welcome.
You don't have to play both sides, but it is encouraged and you record BOTH SIDES SEPARATELY.
If either side disconnects, the game is considered to not count. If you feel you were in a clearly winning, feel free to discuss it with your opponent or PM me if they don't agree.

The SHL is following the ANRPC Code of Conduct. Please be respectful online (http://www.anrplayerscircuit.com/code-of-conduct).
Packs will go legal as they become Tournament Legal on Jinteki. There will be some amount of lag time from release, but I trust the Jinteki crew to keep things updated quickly.
Here is the challenge boards link (if you're new, you'll need to make an account, please make it the same name as Jinteki and stimhack):
The password is "callmeishmael" (minus the quotes "").
You have to play at least 10 games to be eligible to make the top-4 playoffs.
