    From what I've seen so far, times have been clustering, so it is in your best interest to send scores in ASAP once you have a time you are happy with. As per my earlier post, in the case of multiple submissions of the same in-game time, earlier submissions receive the higher ranking.

    Just PM it to me, or in "new forum speak," start a conversation. Link to the screenshot/photo of your trainer card.

    Dropping out, school looks like it's going to be kinda hard this year and I already have X preordered, so someone else could use it a lot more than me. :)

    Crap, why is the cutoff top 24 now? Too many people giving up?

    Submitting mine in a few hours. Kinda annoyed tbh. I had a Low 50 minute run that was near perfect, but my Laptop crashed. That hurt... a lot. Got one new time as a replacement, I'll just submit it when I get my laptop back in a few hours (using friends now to type this)

    I think he just didn't edit the op. The cut-off is 32 instead of 24 only if there are enough submission, anyway (post #18)

    Yeah, I had a feeling that the mass highlight wouldn't work. I'll have to send out VMs manually tomorrow evening.

    I just noticed this at 10PM my time and just submitted my entry. I hope it's not too late... I would've done this much earlier had I known! *please don't disqualify me for being less than 10 minutes late*

    EDIT:
    Wow, upon further review I just realized that it was NOT the 24th an hour ago, but the 23rd. I wasn't late at all. How the hell did I screw that up?
