    Hi man, you either have to be a current player or you have to have played in 3 complete leagues, being on the waiting list now is not enough unfortunately. There is some chance that we will loosen restrictions to hit the right number in the main tournament but I will say that it is unlikely that you will be eligible. If you want we can keep you posted.

    Hi, I don't want to force my way in if you really don't want us in here, but are you sure you're allowed to restrict it like that? I've been told by Cerumol from TBBL, Khornight from UKBBL and TheSpyder from GOBBLN that Netheos told them that the only allowed restriction is against people that have been banned from the various communities.
    Like I said, I won't force my way in either way, but just warning just in case it could get you in trouble.

    Hey Steave, netheos statement was a bit ambiguous since we are allowed to put restrictions in to prevent people playing in multiple qualifiers. In any case there are a few different community leagues restricting entry in the same way are including the biggest community qualifier which is Rebbl.

    So what happens to the one player that will inevitably be left in the top bracket with no one to play? :D

    For example, with 50 players

    round 1 = 50 - 0 (players in first bracket, players in second bracket)
    round 2 = 25 - 25
    round 3 = 13 - 25
    round 4 = 7 - 19
    round 5 = 4 - 13
    round 6 = 2 - 7
    round 7 = 1 - 5

    There are a lot of bye weeks in this format too, as I understand it...

    You do all the bye in the first round, then you are left with 32 players in the second round.

    Nope, it doesn't work with 32 either:

    32 - 0
    16 - 16
    8 - 16
    4 - 12
    2 - 8
    1 - 4

    Needs a rule as to what happens to that guy - I'd suggest he goes into pool 2 with an extra life.

    The system works. We have in-between rounds in the losers' brackets.

    Ah, and the winner of the winners' brackets gets a ticket, then he has no more games to play.

    You can give a look to the whole concept here.

    Ah OK - I had only read the rules thread, and not the more recent Important Information thread :)

    How many tickets did we get? @Veggente85

    2. Then 1 goes to the winner of the winners' bracket and 1 to the winner of the losers' bracket.
