Your selection of five classes to use in week one competition are due tonight. There is a form to submit class selections on the site under Seasons > Season Alpha > Week One to submit the classes. Tomorrow, I will email everyone who has not submitted their classes to remind them to do so. After the picks are in to me, I will publish them all on the site simultaneously. Then there will be a new form for selecting bans. You choose which class on your opponents list that you don't want to let them play. Then I will email the bans to the players 15 minutes before match time. That is why it is important to let me know if you have arranged a different match time with your opponent.
If you haven't already, you should contact your opponent to confirm the time you will be competing. You can see who your week one opponent is on the "Week One" tab of the Season Alpha Spreadsheet. If you cannot meet at the official time (Wednesday 2/11 9:00 PM EST) it is your responsibility to coordinate a different time with your opponent. Let me know if you need any help contacting your opponent.
Anyone who has not submitted their classes by the end of tomorrow (Sunday) will be disqualified for week one. Teams have the opportunity to find a substitute for any disqualified players. We have RadDreams waiting as a free agent and any new people can be brought in as well (this will be less flexible in future seasons/weeks).
It's pretty likely that we will have a few people who have signed up that we'll never hear from again. That's just another part of the growing pains for this first week/season. Players who have been unresponsive will just have to be removed from this season so we can start working on replacements. They will all be welcome back next season or even this season if their spot is still available.
Thanks to all those who have been asking questions and helping me identify where I need to better explain things. If you haven't already, you can like our Facebook page or follow on Twitter to be notified about updates like this one. I don't want spam up people's email boxes any more than necessary. Or you can just check this page regularly.
