    Please begin this tourney !!! All the other February banded tourneys have started, many with less entrants than this one. Are we social misfits or something?

    There has been a new rule that undersubscribed tournaments can only start when there is an even number of entrants.

    As such with 39 entrants this tournament is currently unable to start.

    Three solutions are therefore available to you

    1. Find another entrant
    2. Get someone else to withdraw from tournament
    3. Withdraw from tournament yourself

    Why do we need a rule regarding an even amount of entrants for a tournament promising a group size of 8 people? I can understand the rule for Duel tournaments, but for this one!

    Please just press start.

    Yes, please start soon! To avoid the mysterious odd-number problem I'm willing to make the sacrifice of being given a bye to the next round. It'd be for the greater good you understand.

    We are back on an even number.

    Would someone PLEASE kick off this tournament. I've only got 8 games going. I'm bored stiff here!!!!!!

    That is a problem. Her's an idea though: Leave about 20 open invites, then join every clan that asks you to join and pretty soon you'll have more games than you know what to do with. After that make sure your in as many siege queues as possible and finally join every tournament you are eligable for.

    Tried that before....the end result of that idea is quite clearly marked on my rating chart.

    Its the big trough. You cant miss it!!

    Like zebano said, clans are a good way to get games, you just have to have the right clan leader so you won't get overloaded with games (like you pointed out).

    Doh 47 now =(

    Good lcan leaders are the key. I actually only have 3 clan games right now (though I would like more)
