    Good idea, nice way to give newer players a hand and introduce them to competitive play.

    Don't like rules #2 and #4, what's to stop people rushing and then purposefully DC'ing once they lose board control? Standard procedure is to give a loss to the person who DC'd. And how are you going to give 2 players in the same bracket a loss in a single elimination tournament?

    Lastly I would bump up the max ranking to 200, I'm pretty sure you can get over 100 rating just by winning 2 games in a row.

    Well, even if the requirement would get bumped to 200 max, I still don't agree.

    I've been playing this game for 1 week. I'm lvl 14 with a rating in the 240/250's. Why should I not be allowed to play? Just make the requirements based on experience/time played. Obviously a sense of trust is required, but it's not impossible.
    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    We had many tournaments like this for new players few years ago, it was fun. But yeah, your rating requirement should be up-ed.
