With 2 rounds of the winnerís bracket and still 6 rounds of the loserís bracket remaining, thereís no way weíre going to finish the tournament unless we start ramping up the deadlines for each round, especially the loserís bracket. Hopefully with activity sparking back up with TWL mostly over and less vacations etc. due to the nature of summer, weíll be able to get this thing over with and crown new champions in about a month from now. Players who are actually looking to duel asap have had no problems finding their opponents (24, vys, iron, racka, tiny) so hopefully everyone adopts that same attitude from here on out.

FINALS: The week of October 10th-16th. Must be a scheduled match so I can promote it and hopefully have the final duels recorded.
As more and more players fall into the loserís bracket and the number of players begins to thin out, it shouldnít be too difficult to finish this thing according to schedule. If you do need extra time for whatever reason, let me know (Iím much more lenient towards players who are active and have proven they can make up the missed time). Dueling ahead of schedule is much preferred.
Iíll have time tomorrow to send out messages and Iíll be writing some midseason reviews soon now that we have a much clearer picture of the tournaments. Thanks to everyone who has participated and good luck to everyone still competing!
