Ok, and general discussion time, I'll keep this in mind for next year.
In this first round, if you haven't noticed, I'm flexible on deadlines. I say three days, but if someone pushes it I'll usually accept it a bit late. Thing is, a lot of people haven't been in my comps before and if I was super strict I would end up DQing half the comp. The deadlines get more strict as we get into higher rounds.
What do you guys thing about this? Would you rather a quicker first round with a pile of DQs, or would you rather it take a bit longer but have more battles actually happen? I've always wanted to hear the battles happen, but next year I'm expecting the number of MCs to increase and at that point we can DQ half the people and still have a dope tournament. Thoughts?
