Tournament things. We’re busy-busy in the staff chat discussing final plans for the tournament this summer, and while we don’t have any huge updates to share with you, we’ve got a few things we thought you’d like to know and get involved with!
As you all know we closed sign-ups for the tournament almost a week ago, and shortly after opened sign-ups for stand-in positions. These stand-in sign-ups are still open with very few slots remaining. This is you last to chance to try gain a slot in our tournament, and we’d recommend putting your name down, even if you’re on the edge!
A few people have asked to be removed from the competitors list, and while we haven’t updated the list posted in the older article they have been removed. As such, the first two slots for stand-in draws have opened, another reason for you to put your name down! Stand-in sign-ups can be found HERE.
We had a couple of concerns about how we would be handling disconnections from battles should they occur. It’s difficult for us to have one single rule that applies to every circumstance. Because of this we have decided that should an opponent or yourself disconnect from a battle, you’re to inform a member of staff or someone helping run the tournament. We will decide the best outcome and allow things to continue as we see fit.
As it’s you guys who will be taking part in the tournament, it’s important that you have all your questions and concerns addressed. We’d like to give this opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have in the comments, or through Twitter and we’ll do our best to answer them. We’ll also provide a summary article for the most pressing questions in a few days time.
Feel free to ask anything you’d like to know and we’ll do our absolute best to answer them!
