A lot of you have been asking about the tourney and when it starts. To make this tourney easier for ALL racers based on timezones, schedules, etc., we’re are forced to make difficult decision and mix up the tourney rules a bit.
Tonight is still the inaugural, but it will be turned into a friendly tournament with a set time and code to join. Additionally, a randomly generated tournament chart will be published tonight. It will follow a similar format to the World Cup’s competition flow, with groups of four racers and top two racers advancing to knockout stage. Racers will have a week to communicate with each other and set up the best time possible to meet for a race. This way we ensure that everyone gets a fair shot at competing. If for some reason a racer does not reply to any asks within a day of the agreed time, they will be dropped and replaced with the next in line from the waitlist.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but it is our belief that this change in format will help everyone involved enjoy this tourney to the max.
