h. Players must not use any form of hacking or other exploitations.

i. Should a player lap-troll, the host is to immediately close the room, remove the offender(s), and re-open the room. The race will not count and the player will be disqualified.

Bracket



Special Registration Rules (please read to help tournament day go smooth)
- Like most tournaments, players will need to register on the tournament page.
- Because this is the final event of a qualifier, only the top 36 players in the rankings will be guaranteed a spot in the tournament. All other players who participated may sign-up, but will be put on a waitlist. It is strongly encouraged that you sign up if you are in the top 48 of the rankings.
- Registration will lock at 11:00 AM EST the day of the tournament. You must sign up on the tournament page in time to be eligible to play in the tournament. Players currently ranked outside the top 12 are encouraged to sign-up even if their availability is shaky. A check-in will take place before the event that ensures the tournament gets 36 players, so no disqualifications will be counted for these players.
- Players ranked from 13th to 36th will be required to check-in on discord or via posting in this thread from 11:30-11:40 AM EST.
- After check-in ends, on Discord, the remaining spots of those who did not check-in will be filled starting with the 37th ranked player until 36 players are obtained for the tournament.
- Players in the top 12 will not have to check-in or even show up until their semifinals room. Please note that if you're in the top 12 currently, your room is still subject to change until registration locks an hour before round 1 (unless you're the #1 seed).
- Players currently in the top 12 that register but end up being unable to participate in their room will receive a disqualification unless they either unregister before registration closes or deconfirm in the check-in window.

Extra Note: Semi-final rooms will not be randomized, but will be re-seeded in order to prevent entire rooms advancing together. If the 25th seed doesn't advance from Round 1 but the 26th seed does, the 26th seed will take the 25th seeds slot in the semifinals, and onward.

Schedule

All times in EST.

11:00 AM - Registration Page Deadline
11:30 AM - Check-in Begins for players ranked 13th-36th.
11:40 AM - Missing player spots filled in on Discord.
12:00 PM - Tournament Begins. (Round Times on Bracket Above)

Catch the entire event live streamed on Twitch!​

Semifinals, last race, a random player joined and finished. Does the race count? My discord is still dead.
It will be counted; we'll have no 12th race to count otherwise, and the person who d/c'd was eliminated regardless of the race. The result will just be upheld; unfortunately there's just no good solution here and we were unable to communicate with everyone because of Discord being down

Congrats to @Darky for the first place effort, and winning the prize. Good stuff as well to Erickfree, K4I, and Eji for the 3 person tie for 2nd as well. Really was unfortunate how bad Discord was today, made everything way harder. Hope it was still worth the time for everyone, at least it seemed the finals went pretty well overall. Thanks for playing everyone!
