I'm really happy with the way this tournament went. My team did really great. I only did a total of something like 52 battles, so I probably could have pushed for some more points, but I was happy with my rating higher than the other tournaments.
The competition in the tournament I felt was on the whole easier than the International one with the Japanese players included. The fact that it isn't properly international does take away some of the satisfaction of a high ranking, but it's nothing to think twice about really.
Unlike most of the people posting in the main thread, I didn't have one person disconnect on me mid-battle through the whole tournament. Maybe I got lucky, maybe I did my battles at the right time or something.
My final scores: 48 wins / 4 losses / 3 disconnects - Ranking 1838
