Hey everybody! I am going to opening any current qualifiers to come into the Snorlax's Discord for tryouts. If you are interested click the link and join the server, and you can get a tryout with me (or maybe trace). ONLY COME FOR TRYOUTS IF YOU HAVE ALREADY QUALIFIED PLEASE!
Is there any way there can be a compromise to make BLT a little longer while also not completely destroying the plan put in place for group play in this iteration of BLT?
I propose an elongated playoff format where instead of 4 teams making it to playoffs, 6 teams make it to playoffs: the top 2 teams from each division get a bye to the semi finals, and the 2nd and 3rd place teams duke it out in the "quarter finals"
This would help stretch out BLT giving more of the players more of a fulfilling BLT experience, while also granting more excitement over the extra 2 playoff spots. There still remains some exclusivity to playoffs while making the BLT rounds more engaging for more players.
I was spit-balling this and although I got absolutely no support from anyone that heard this idea, I think it's worth posting
Due to bdov's drop out of the tour, player Kingofcrimea will move into the qualfied players list for the 1st cycle and Blizburgh will move into the 1st cycle subs list
Other sub changes have been made with this cycle of qualifications, please refer to the above list for the most recent and updated version.
Now, onto the other matters, the check-in time for this cycle is shortened due to when the Auction draft will be held. Players that have qualified this cycle will have until Thursday 23:59 -4 GMT. Any player that fails to check-in will lose their place and it will be handed to the first sub in line.
The Draft this year will be held on the 7/07/2018 at 1500 GMT -4.
The topic that Jrdn has brought up will be discussed and a decision will be made at a later date before the tour starts.
Congratulations to all whom have qualified this cycle.
