Hello! We've finally begun our Top Cut bracket for the Trainer Tower Open! We have 32 players currently left in Top Cut, and all players have earned points towards a Trainer Tower Invitational invite, of which the prize pool has a $1300+ USD prize pool. Please ensure you have read the explanation of Top Cut, especially the details regarding Team Lock from this round onward. The post can be read here. I have already seen that some people have submitted a cryptobin without a key. This is not allowed, the key must be provided alongside the cryptobin as I won't be delaying a round if the opponent believes there have been changes and I need to check a pastebin. It's much harder to go back and change a win for a loss in Top Cut as oppose to Swiss. Reminder that only I have access to them and will only open them if asked to by an opponent. If there is an issue regarding privacy and there is legitimate concern other methods can be discussed in a Conversation here on the Forums. Any player who has not submitted a key or discussed alternatives with me will be issued set losses at the start of Top 16 Round Begins: May 15th (Tuesday) 8am GMT / May 15th (Tuesday) 6pm AEST / May 15th (Tuesday) 1am PT / May 15th (Tuesday) 4am ET Round Ends: May 21st (Monday) 8am GMT / May 21st (Monday) 6pm AEST / May 21st (Monday) 1am PT / May 21st (Monday) 4am ET The Round will begin on Tuesday and end on Monday, with a 24 hour period dedicated to resolving all round issues. Please ensure that any issues have been brought up with the head TO before the end of the Round (That's me!). Your original flight leaders will not resolve any issues. Contact must be made on Trainer Tower Forums. Top 32 players this week, however, I would recommend you get in contact with your opponent for the following round early just to check availability/timezones for next week, but obviously this won't be enforced. ALSO: Replays are required and are to be posted in this thread for viewing purposes. It also allows for an even playing field so that some players are not disadvantaged. This also emulates real Top Cut situations at events. These replays may also be recorded by Trainer Tower. Here is the bracket! Questions can be posted here as normal!
