You are correct Viz and I do apologize to everyone for being tardy in getting the rules up on the front page. In the initial excitement I managed to overlook that. I first brought up the flight idea in this thread. I've had to alter that initial setup slightly in order to accomodate the requests for longer match times, the sheer amount of people who have entered and while still trying to keep the event's duration under 28 days.
There will still be large tournaments every couple of months, however judging by the current rate of expansion it may take us 2 months to complete the next full sized tourney while still giving everyone ample time to play. In that same thread above I dropped the idea of using the WGT Weeklies as a sort of qualifier for the large tourneys to help limit the field. I'm still kicking ideas around and looking for feedback on that if you have any thoughts.
Going forward I'll do my best to get everything on the table immediately and keep the surprises to a minimum. Truth be told, I've never organized an event this big and sometimes things pop up that I don't anticipate. Please bear with me, I'm still learning the ropes. :)
