Pick a player.
Thursday 2pm is the end of the first round. Anyone who hasn't made a pick by then may not join and the last person to pick gets to pick again. We go back through everyone in reverse order, then start from the first person again. Then, as time permits, we repeat until round 1 of the PT starts. I'll update this post with picks so far.
If we get to six picks each before it starts on Friday we'll stop but I don't suppose we will. Hopefully we'll get at least two each! If a round of picks is incomplete at the start of the competition it will be ignored. We may skip you on picks for r2 onwards if you take a while. Feel free to jump back in when you catch up. We'll try not to do that.
Points are the total points your team gets over the course of the competition including IDs, concessions and any other shenanigans. You also get 3 points per match win in Top 8.
First tiebreaker is how far your most successful player went in the competition. Second tiebreaker is Swiss position of your highest placed player.
