We ran into an issue when closing the 2nd day of qualifiers that caused players who rightfully qualified to receive a "you missed the cut" message. Those players did still qualify and later received a "you made the cut" message but unfortunately I feel like it may have only caused more confusion.
If you rightfully qualified in the second day of the Showdown you have received a special inbox message that will hopefully settle the confusion. If you also re-entered the showdown today when you didn't have to, you received a second message in your inbox with a refund of your entry.
Thank you all for your patience and I'm sorry this took so long to settle.
