All updates will be posted on the MadCast forums post, so please head there.
Bracket info will be posted once sign-ups are closed, this gives you two days to view bracket info.
Bracket will be randomly seeded.
Non-drafted free agents will be put on teams randomly generated (with roles in mind) and will be entered as teams on the 27th. I will contact players whom have been sorted this way.

Players who carry themselves in a disrespectful manor during the event will receive an automatic ban from the next event, as well as other potential consequences to be determined later after consultation with other admins.
