    Sorry if this has been answered, but I am playing in tournaments (and ladders) with non members - how do they get in? Is there a grace period when their membership lapses?

    If you start any game when you're a subscriber, it's allowed to continue to its end. I'm guessing that also applies to future tourney rounds, but haven't actually tracked one through to verify.

    Yeah, sign up for a tournament siege or any other game when you have a sub and you still get to play when you're sub expires. Ladder i doubt i you can start a new game but i think you can still be challenged, not sure on ladders though.

    it is strange as this player has not subscribed as long as i have known him but he still gets to play tournaments!

    I can't find anyone amongst your games that isn't a subscriber ...perhaps you're referring to 'Luck' User 22093 ...he's an original 'pawn star', a one off contributor to the site. They do have adverts between games, but they're most certainly subscribers...

    You can identify the "pawn stars", they have a white/colourless star. They're effectively life members.
