Starting Friday August 27th, there will be 3 tournaments every weekend: Fridays - 8:00 pm Eastern Saturdays - 4:00 pm Eastern Sundays - 2:00 pm Eastern You can join a maximum of two tournaments per weekend - so if you play on Friday and Saturday, you can not play Sunday. Playing throughout the 12 week tour is entirely optional - you can choose to play or not to play whenever you want. At the times posted above, a Topic will be posted in the Tour section of the forums. All you need to do to sign up is to post "in." If you are among the first 64 / 128 users to sign up, you will be able to play. You will need to do this for every tournament you wish to play in. Each weekend will be the same tier - starting on August 27th, the tier will be OU for that weekend. OU, UU, and Uber will be filtered in and out every three weeks. Again, if you only want to play the OU tournaments, then just wait for the week to be OU. After you sign up, pairings will be posted in a few minutes. You are expected to contact your opponent on Shoddy battle and do the battle within 15 minutes of the posting of the pairings. You play until you lose. When you win, you will need to contact the host of the tournament (the person who posted the Topic) on Shoddybattle and tell them you won. Hopefully this should answer a lot of questions.
