just a quick update from tahuken: Trying to hunt down our 2nd match of the first round, I sent an ingame mail to Rhaffus but didnt let me send to Kreytor (F2P?). Not sure if we have extra days as well or if we've been DQ'd, but will keep an eye out for them either way.
Technically your fight against Two Dude One Railshot would be considered second round.
Don't worry about rushing it, you've got the same deadline as everyone else.
This is just the product of having a number of teams that wasn't a power of 2
