All the news will be announced here, so you don't have to search the thread - everything important (deadlines, announcements, reminders) will be posted here, in the first post.
Here are the most important News and Announcements
for this GMT Tournament, sorted chronologically starting from latest

for The Task Pool. Everyone please send 3 Tasks

, until one day before AO Main Draw start of play.
- Judges Commitment Deadline: Judges

all the way until the GMT Quarter Finals.
- Qualifications Round
: For this Tournament ONLY
, due to the thread being out a week later then normal schedule predicts, THERE IS NO QUALIFICATIONS ROUND
- 1st Round Byes
: The GMT Main Draw
size will be out when we see how many Designers we'll have playing. Due to there being no Qualifications Round and, thus, no Seeding - if the Draw allows for 1st Round Byes
for Designers, they will be given out in the order of application
in this thread.
- Manager Wanted:
The current Managers for this Tournament are Poiree and Harmless, and we are searching for a third Manager. Since GMT gameplay requires graphics to be posted every 8 hours, and we are both in the same timezone (Central European), we would need someone with at least 5 hours difference, so anyone from either North or South America, Australia or Eastern Asia would be great. Please PM Harmless if you're interested.
- Photo Wanted
: Also, please, if anyone has a larger version of the court photo above
, or knows where to find it, PM Harmless. The graphic above is a bit too messy, mostly due to the very small size of the photo available.
