I wonder how many other things there are which would motivate me to get up at 7 AM on the first Saturday after after my semester...but not many, I'm sure.

I'm really excited for this!

When would be too late to de-register if something comes up?

Will be OK to drop out until I finalise the bracket.
Which will be 1 hour before we start.
After that if you drop out, it will be a free win for your "lucky" opponent.

I've got work untill 15 and then it takes me about half an hour to get home. I could probably play my first game at work, but depending on when the second is supposed to be played I might have a hard time making it.

I'm hoping each round will take about an hour.
But I wont be enforcing a time limit.
Expecting people to play the next round as soon as both players are ready.
I would say sign up.
Please play round 1 from work.
And warn your round 2 opponent you might be a bit late.

Wait, 14.00 UK time, GMT +1?  Didn't realize the UK also used DST, so that's 6am on the west coast? ouch...  I'll really have to think about it.

I probably won't be able to play this one, but it's a great idea and I hope it happens more in the future. 2 month long tournaments, while fun, are ~60 days too long imo.

I took the liberty of cross-posting this on BGG. I'm a bit surprised it hasn't filled up more quickly, and I figure the more the merrier!

Are players allowed to play ahead of schedule?  Just send you the scores as they are done? 

I guess this might become more of an issue when we get down to finals?

I think playing as soon as both players finish the last round is the best plan.
Having not done this before I am kind of guessing, but this should be the best way to finish all the matches in the shortest time.

So EST is GMT-5 and tournament is GMT+1.  I'm unsure exactly how DST falls in - does the tournament begin at 10am EST?

Thanks

The tournament starts at 13.00 UTC (or GMT).  That's 8.00 EST, or 9.00 EDT if you're currently on DST.

Plenty of room for more players though, if anyone else is interested.

Hey there, just a couple questions before the tournament tomorrow. How will we know the opponent we should play? Will the schedule be posted and updated on the challonge page? Should we all meet in Secret chamber? And where do you want us to report results?

There will be a bracket on Challonge telling you who to play.
(I will try to PM you on Challonge when your next round is ready.)
Yes all please meet in the Secret Chamber.
(if your Challonge user name doesn't match your Isotropic name please add the name to your status.
Please report results in the results thread.
It is double elimination, so you get to keep playing until you lose two rounds.

We have 24 players so far.
8 more players would be ideal if anyone else wants to join in.

I don't really get the clock adding up. I was pretty sure I was at GMT +1, but if the tournament starts when my clock is 15 I'm not so sure anymore...

You're GMT+2 Lekkit :)

http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

Edit: "London Time is the same as Greenwich Mean Time less than half of the year.  During Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time), London Time is GMT+1, also known as British Summer Time (BST)."

DST always messes my understanding of time zones up too.

Also, I kinda want to play in this, but I'm pretty sure I'll be drunk by the time it starts :) Possibly not the best idea.
