Your GR is ahead of mine Bob. I'm super excited to be participating.
I stand corrected, looks like my GR is 121 \o/

I'm a stone's throw away from emc's GR (on the better side thankfully). But still, I'm excited to see how quickly I can get crushed as good countries like France and Turkey.

Apologies everyone. In setting up the tournament, I realized that the sets I had made allowed for the breaking of anon fairly easily. I've been working all night on a new lineup of matches, and should be done tomorrow (It is surprisingly easy to make a configuration where you play every country and player once, yet surprisingly hard to do so in a quasi-random fashion while still balancing for equal Strength of Schedule).

To answer the obvious question, I didn't want to copy from previous iterations of the tournament either. Anonymity is very important, especially earlier on, and I wouldn't want some village idiot being able to break anon.

Hello everyone! I've sent out some of the first PMs for the games, but it is late so I shall get to the rest tomorrow. If you see someone leaving the game after you join, don't worry it's just me.

I promise to have a more complete kick-off message tomorrow :)

Thank you to everyone for the gentle reminders I wasn't doing my job :)

All invites for Rounds 1 and 2 have been sent out, save for a handful of Round 1 invites. I misread my spreadsheet for a few names last week, so I'm waiting on a few people to drop from R1G1 and R1G2 before I send the correct players their invites.

Let me know if you have any difficulties joining or any other problems (such as getting two invites for the same round lol.....please I hope that didn't happen)

Okay, everyone should have their games now. I'll be shuffling the games and getting them started as they fill up. Best of luck!

A friendly reminder to everyone - if I force you into CD to remove you from a game, do not check that game. Do not open that game. Doing so puts you out of CD and back into the game, and delays your replacement. Thanks!

Will you post a message in global saying the games are good-to-go for both the R1 and R2 games?

If any Americans would like a pause for Thanksgiving, please PM me tonight or tomorrow. Otherwise, we'll keep rolling along. I won't be able to check the site much on Turkey Day.
