First off, I have created and properly placed the scheduling and results forum sections for both IS and Periphery/Pirate factions in the forums. I apologize for the delay on that, in all the excitement of getting the round 3 brackets organized, I forgot to set those up before I went to bed. Hopefully that wasn't a problem for to many units.
Second, as we had the forum delay, and two units will have had to wait until late tonight to start scheduling due to the SiG vs BSA game to happen, we are going to push the deadline for the end of the ToP Round 3 two days. This, along with planning to increase the final round of the ToP to an 8 day cycle should have us ending on a Wednesday/Thursday for both rounds respectively. This should make things a little easier for units to get things done as we will have a Tuesday to Thursday cycle for each round.
The new deadline for Round 3 will be 11:59 PM Eastern, on Wednesday October 22nd
The estimated timeline for Round 4 will be from 11:59 Wednesday the 22nd, until the end of the night on Thursday Oct 30th.
Just in time for those of you with kids, or those of you with a hankering for chocolate to dress up in your finest Battlemaster costume and go cruising the neighborhood in search of loot the following night.
Here are the brackets and restrictions for Round 3 of the Trial of Position. We still have one match between BSA/SiG that will be played tomorrow (tuesday) night. But we could still go forward with the brackets. I will send another notification out once we have their results for the two match ups that are affected.
