Ah, alright. Makes more sense now.

With CPs and byes on the line, I have a bad feeling alot of competitive players will abuse this.
Also, a little heads up would be nice instead of sign ups staring the day it's announced. Some of us don't have a team yet, and getting one isn't exactly a quick process...
Other than that I'm looking forward to this, and I'm hoping I'm wrong about the DCs.
Let's hope DCs are not an issue. Assuming a player has no clue about this "Workaround," the hour penalty will hopefully deter those who DC to keep their ranking high, as it will cost them valuable battles in the long run.
