Without intending to repeat myself from the Escape Gaming thread, why are you restricting slinging until the imperial age? Slinging is overpowered I'll grant that, but introducing mods that balance slinging has been done quite a few times, so there's no lack of test data.

Nilly is a underrated caster, This will be a great tourney for sure.

Wonder who will be the 8 teams playing, i actually find 3v3 more exciting then 4v4 games.

+1
8 x 3 players makes 24 players in total, which is a nice amount of included people (more than in the other 1v1 or 2v2 smack down tournaments)

:clap: Great one again, Nili. With you planning, funding, doing the admin, and casting this series, that deserves a lot of credit. Also I love the fact that it's not starting 3 months out, I can get hyped and watch it in the same week. Wp.

Also, I've been critical in the past of your streaming policy, but my opinion has changed in the face of evidence / more thinking ( always important :lol: ) and I think you have one of the more reasonable positions in the game now. +1
