A friend (Greg) is trying to get me to go to WBC this year a first).
As I am not familiar with the convention format and don't know how to read your schedule . . .
Which days exactly are you planning on holding "Real Team" play?
Saturday is the actual event that will go 3 rounds of single elimination, however there is a "Mulligan" round on Thursday. Players who win the Mulligan round on Thursday can move right to the second round on Saturday.
The idea with the Mulligan, is folks can try Warparty and even if they lose they can still participate in the full event on Saturday, but there is a nice reward for winning on Thursday as well (advancement to the 2nd round).
Hope to see you there Dan. Would be awesome if you can come.
