#405

the name on the waitlist has to be the person signing up.


#406

That would be up to the people running the promotion.


#407

Makes me wonder what the Belles Fundraiser is. I suspect they will pull in a pretty penny if it’s an auction or similar!

Also curious about the Jackbar giveway. (Found the info for the Level One Bar + Arcade event.) It’s a good thing I’m not a cat…


#408

Great, thanks Doug!

Another question I had is how many total players are there in the tournament? I thought it was 800 put the player list says 837?


#409

It will be 840.


#410

There were a few cancellations I believe that haven’t been filled yet.


#411

Looks like the rules were posted recently.

I’m not sure if there are any changes from last year, even with the addition of a new division.


#412

If these rules are correct, then it looks like Session 10 is reverting back to 1-2-3-4, 5-6-7-8, etc. groupings?


#413

It appears that section 6 is out of date. It doesn’t mention the new E division.


#414

Do you mean III.6 or another section 6?

I’m a little surprised that division D doesn’t have some kind of restriction now that there’s a E division.


#415

III.6 is what I was referring to. It doesn’t mention E division.


#416

there’s no money in E division


#417

So?

As it stands, section III.6 assigns 100% of players to divisions A, B, C, and D, meaning that the new E division will not have any players in it. That doesn’t sound quite right to me :slight_smile:


#418

I’m not sure how that would affect whether there would be a ranking or other restriction for the D division.


#419

I assume @stevevt is referring to Section II.2. Skill Division Restrictions with his statement, not III.6

From the rules, “restrictions are designed to discourage any player from intentionally competing beneath [their] level of skill.”

I’m just inferring that these restrictions are focused on a player who would have a tough time of winning money in A division but an easy time in C division. There is no money in E division, so there is less incentive to sandbag into it, meaning D does not need restrictions… unless there are a number of players who prefer to win a medal in E instead of a chance to win $1000…


#420

There’s another way to look at it, though. Restrictions that would force players into D would keep the E division open to the players for whom it’s intended. Of course, I’m assuming that the tournament is trying to distinguish between D-level skill and E-level skill the same way it does between, say, C and D.


#421

In any case, I think “Division A restrictions” should be changed to “Restrictions for Division B and Lower”, likewise Division B restriction should be “Restrictions for Division C and Lower” etc.


#422

Hoping TNA is on the stage!

As the person that got the ebay ticket - it’s still by a mile the cheapest part of the trip for me! And great value


#424

Rules are still being updated. Final version should be posted soon.


#425

I’m really, really not trying to start anything (really), but you might want to review the paragraph at the end of section 2.5.
