  1. Has the format been finalised yet?
    There was discussion about whether it would be round-robin, double-elimination or a combination of the two.
    Double-elimination could mean only getting to play 2 games. This would be a real bummer for those who’ve travelled from far and wide…

  2. Hey that’s a really good question. We are pushing (hard) for Round Robin, but it depends on how many teams register. Not all teams have registered yet, so we can’t say definitely yet.

    Will update here as soon as it’s finalised.

  3. Please keep pushing for Round Robin – I am really looking forward to playing as many teams as possible (as is everyone else from Sydney).

    How do we register prior to the tournament so we can give you a better idea of numbers?
