I apologize if this thread is not allowed since the main hosting of the tournament will be on another site, but I figured some PE2K'ers would want to join. Feel free to close this if it's against the rules, but I didn't see anything about it when I read the rules thread.
Saturday March 01
10:30 AM Pacific Time. This is 11:30 Mountain Time, 12:30 Central, and 1:30 PM Eastern, I believe.
10:30 - 11:00
Check-ins. You will sign in on the thread made for that, which will be linked from here.
11:00 - 11:15
Brackets posted and time to find your first match.
11:15 - 12:30
Time for first match. Extra-long to allow for some good stall and for a possible replay in case of disconnects.
12:30 - 1:45
Time for second match. Same as first.
1:45 - 3:00
Time for third match.
3:00 - 4:15

4:15 - 5:30
Time for last match in case of 32-person tourney.
In Case of Forums Acting Up, these things will be done on the chat. If this is the case, all personal conversation MUST be taken to PC and let the staff put brackets through.
