@Iron Sky and @Psykick - I have a Dentist's appointment in the morning, which you don't care about, but it happens to be at 9 am ET, so I won't be able to start the match right then. I'll be starting the match 30 minutes earlier at 8:30 ET. I hope that's close enough to make it no big deal.

So I may not be available after all. Just found out that my county (along with most of California) will be losing power around midnight tonight and may not be getting it back for up to 7 days. Long story short, it's wild fire season and the energy company that supplies most of our power doesn't want to be held liable for fires started by their equipment so they are powering down most of the state.

I'll update tonight if I get more info but all we have right now is a vague "Probably losing power, don't know how long" statement.

Goddamn, the lengths some contestants will go to for a little sympathy from a judge....Seriously, just charge up your phone and start soaking some towels so you can stuff them under doors to keep the smoke out until you've finished your entry.

In all seriousness, keep us posted. That sounds awful.

I hope that you don't lose power, and that things remain sane enough that you can participate. Since the fourth round is already scheduled and our list of contestants didn't include any alternates, I'm going to hope like hell that everything works out for you to participate.

The good news is that I'm well outside of the wildfire zone, so I'll at least be safe from that but since Cali's energy grid is so interconnected they are having a hard time isolating our county from the other ones that need shutting off. Hope things work out, fingers crossed!
 
My entry has been posted. It's not as polished as I would have liked; I was only able to work on it for 3 hours total thanks to a scheduling nightmare at work. I even posted it an hour early because I have to run to another engagement. --sigh-- Ah well. Let's see how it shakes out!

Oh hello! I've been busy with work and gaming and hadn't noticed that the tournament launched! I'm here now. If the brackets are full then I'll happily spectate, but if you need another competitor, I'd be happy to jump in.

Welp, looks like I'll be out of power for the next few days starting sometime tonight or early tomorrow. estimates are ranging for 48 hours to a week of outage, really not sure what to expect. If we can reschedule my match for next week when power is back that'd be great, if not I'll step out for this year and hopefully join in next year.

Just a heads up; I'm in a power outage starting at midnight tonight. They say it shouldn't last more than a day, but also that it could last as many as five. I believe that Psykick is in a similar situation, which may delay the next two matches for a bit.

You’ve got a title to defend!

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.

Wait, what? Y'all matched up the grudging alternate with the defending champion?

For my reaction to this news, see my avatar.

;)

@Gradine give me a heads up when you're around and ready- but my weekends don't work very well.

No worries. Whenever the inferno departs and deposits Psyckick back in the 21st Century I'm ready to go.

I'm home sick today and off tomorrow. I won't have a better window than this, aside from the discomfort of having no voice.
