Welcome to the first Major tournament of the TPA5 season!

, so each player will play all 10 rounds.
In each round, each player will play 3 10-player games
- 1 standard, 1 terminator, and 1 assassin.

As is always the case with my tournaments, if you let 3 invites expire in any one round, you will be removed and replaced.
A declined invite counts as 2 expired invites.
Of course, I won't hold it against you if you click the wrong link by accident or can't get to your computer on a given day - unless you don't tell me that and just assume I know - believe it or not, I'm not psychic (yet).
I believe I have made everything clear, but if you still have questions, ask away.
