Set 2 only is a very interesting challenge. I am really looking forward to this.

I would like to commend everyone at five shards who helps organize and run these tournaments. I wasn't able to participate in the blood cup but all the tournament announcements, rules, and sponsorship posts have been very professional and have really impressed me.

All your hard work is very appreciated. Happy Holidays!

Oh and Happy Birthday Zubrin!

It depends on entrants and how long rounds take. Last time it lasted about nine hours, but we had a 45 minute delay and a few long rounds. The delay issue from the Blood Cup was an error with Challonge that, if we encounter again, we know how to resolve quickly. Additionally, I am speculating that Diamond cup rounds will be less likely to go to time than Blood cup as there is less room for traditional control in the meta (maybe).

Whether we need 7 or 8 rounds will also depend on whether we surpass 128 players in the tournament again. We shall see!

Thanks for your kind words, Desk. The Cups are currently run by Pentachills, Tecnophi, JuzamJedi, and me, so it is very much a team effort and we are trying to get a few more people involved. The FiveShards website itself is a much bigger project, but our writers and tech team include some of the strongest players in the game and we want to give them every possible opportunity to play hex that we can.

I'd get involved, but I want to play in them too much, the sacrifice of all behind the scenes running these tournaments is noted and appreciated.

Yeah sorry for the nagging, I just don't think I have the Set 2 cards until then.
I have to say it's absolutly awesome what you do and it's very much appriciated (also I didn't have the time to join on the Bloodcup unfortunatly). January has to be seen. I'm pretty sure I will have time in february to help out (before or after the event, and during the event if I'm not participating :-)) if there is still some space to fill.

Yeah, it's a bit tough. Do you have any friends you can borrow cards from? That can help to fill in the gaps.

Thank you for your concern!
But I just went over the calendar and I really see no possibility to participate this month anyway. So problem solved :-/
