T68, and a Rule Change

Posted at 07/11/17 - 10:21 AM

T68, and a Rule Change & Adjusted Dates.

We are now accepting team entries for T68. Due to concerns about slow team entries, we have extended the registration period. Registration will now close on Thursday, July 27th at 22:00 server time (EDT). Round 1 will commence the following Tuesday, August 1st.

To enter a team, first login, and the submit a team tab will appear on the upper left side of this page. Follow the information on that page (and please take note of any error messages you might receive), and your team should be processed within a day or two.

Also, we are changing rule 15 A.i.a, namely the 'grace period'. In the past, players would not be forfeited if they arrived within 30 minutes of a scheduled time. We are now reducing this to 15 minutes.See for the relevant part of the statutes. Players will be expected to follow the new rule from the start of T68, and we ask that captains keep their players informed of the change.

As always, questions are welcome in channel 101, or can be sent to the TeamLeague account on FICS.
