And before anyone asks...

YES! There WILL be an MIT this year!

For those that don't know... Only the top 64 players from round one advance to round two. The next 64 players in line will be invited to play in the Mocpages Invitational Tournament (MIT).

We have a few surprises in store for those invited to play in the MIT and yes, there are also prizes to be won over there! So don't get discouraged if you don't make the top 64, it's arguable that there will be more fun (and confusion and drama... be warned) in the MIT this year than in the main game.

Good luck everyone!
~Chris.

You'll be his only friend...

Sorry Chris, Joe made it too easy. Mentioning smack, Phipson, and friendship in the same sentence is folly when I'm around.

Enter a contest to fall out immediately so that you can enter another?

The brilliance of this plan is inspiring! It's as if you saw the fruit ripe on the tree and plucked it! Oh, the sweet nourishment of a perfect design! Oh, bountiful nectar of pure wisdom! Oh, sated appetite of beautiful truth! What possibility for failure is there? World leaders beware as humanity has yet to see this flourishing genius of an idea coming down the pike!

BTW did you know that my sarcasm level goes to eleven. HALLO CLEVELAND!!!

That saying has been around longer than anyone on MOCpages has been alive (including me), so a charge of plagiarism wouldn't stick. Your concerns are noted, however, and the responsible party will be beaten.
