First, good news, the armory is updating again and the lists are filling out. If your team doesn't show up within 24 hours of it appearing on the armory, please reply in this thread.

Just a few updates and clarification based on the common questions we have received:

1) If you break 2200, and we have it recorded, you will receive max tickets even if you dip below again. So once you have 2200, you can continue to play the team as normal. Don't continue to play until you are sure we have it if you are worried.

2) We have lowered the restriction to > 70% of the games played to be eligible. This should still make sure only the main competitors get credit while relaxing the restriction a bad to take into account DCs, someone leaving, etc. New rule: To be eligible to win you must have competed in at least 70% of the games played, or be within 100 PR. (Exceptions may be made if deemed necessary by the judges, but at least one member must meet the requirements or the team will be throw out under the assumption it has been purchased.)

3) You can be on one team per bracket per character. The caveat being, you can only win one prize.

4) If you participate with someone who competes on another team, we will treat all those members as if they were on one larger team then randomly pick someone within the team to get the prize. Example: Druid + Rogue play, same Druid + Warrior play. Druid + Rogue + Warrior are one team with one entry, and only 2 of the 3 will get a prize. Summary: Don't compete on more than one team in the same bracket.

Any other questions, please feel free to let us know. We are glad to see such great participation and look forward to doing more future events.

Not sure if I understand #3 right, so I'm an idiot for disbanding both my 2v2 and 3v3 teams? Or can I get tickets for both teams?

My mage and I have (atm) over 2k in both 2s and 3s, with a rogue in 3s. So will we get tickets for the 2v2 PLUS the 3v3, or only the highest one?

You will get tickets for the 2v2 and 3v3, but you can only win one prize. So no, it was smart to have two teams :)

I believe they are physical objects, so we will either contact you in game to make sure your information here is up to date and to gather any further information needed.

For the contest I won for BC, the website forwarded the emails to blizzard and they sent the beta key to the email, but I imagine you'd be the one to know more than me for this one.

We will treat both teams as if they are one, then random at the appropriate ratios within the team if you win.

Updated the 70% rule to be slightly more flexible still. It now reads:

To be eligible to win you must have competed in at least 70% of the games played, or be within 100 PR. (Exceptions may be made if deemed necessary by the judges, but at least one member must meet the requirements or the team will be throw out under the assumption it has been purchased.)

It's going to run through the end of today. We will post an update later this evening as we try to figure out the best way to deal with the armory issues.
