It's April 9th, and as said in the initial post, Signups are now closed! We have a total of 39 participants!
To characters who signed up who are not currently on Earth, please start travelling over ASAP for fights, as they will begin tomorrow!
In addition, due to our total number of participants unable to be evenly divided into our required top 16, elimination rounds will be required. This means there will be a second round preceding preliminaries, where only some characters will have to fight an additional time in the tournament. It's unfortunate, but the total number of participants requires us to do this. These additional rounds abide by the same time limits and rules as the normal preliminary fights.
We will be allowing volunteers to step up to take an elimination round- in an ideal world, we'd like to have 14 volunteers. By the end of today, if there are not 14 volunteers, some characters will be randomly chosen to fill the remaining slots. The final brackets will be announced either sometime tonight or early tomorrow morning depending on how many volunteers for the elimination round we get!
If you would like to be a volunteer for this, post in this thread stating so!
