    Well as Professor and Nationals judge you should know the tournament rules by now don't you think?
    But in case you missed it, it's in the Nationals FAQ

    Next time when you start picking at me I would suggest , do your homework first.

    To all UK Players,

    Good luck and be there.

    Rainbowgym: I did know but i just wanted to make sure to other players as well. If it seems that i was picking at you, then i'm sorry. I normally pick on everyone but sometimes i do appear to pick on a single person.

    Pokeplus: I don't think so :frown:

    How are you going to make deckchecks and registration in just 30 mins??

    TORCHWOOD New Member

    It says

    Registration 8.30am-9.00am

    Round 1- 10.30am. so... there's plenty of time for deckchecks. But only half an hour for registration is too short. They should allow one hour at least!!

    Logistics are being discussed including registration and deck checks...

    Seriously though players are going to need to have the decklists done and decks in order of the decklist prior to registration and get there in tim because when registration closes - if you are too late you will get a first round loss!

    It's about time the UK got it togther for Nationals - OPEN NATIONALS is good
    Logistics to be sorted

    As Players and TOs we need to get the message out though - Be ready, be on time and have your decklist done!

    Why has Nats been closed anyways?

    Chris can I suggest preregistration to speed things up for starters?

    How many Worlds invites are there for each age group...

    ...ie. is it just Sami going or Sami and the player he beats in the final? :smile:

    It takes one games loss and a player will never be late, without decklist and deck in order anymore.
    But most TO's are afraid to "punish" and therefor getting into time problems.

    And OPEN Nationals, well that's how it should be * end of discussion* LOL
