Re: SPRING Tournament (SCOP MS, Online, 4/9/2022)

Today is the second-to-last day to register for the SPRING waitlist. If we get enough staff and enough teams to sign up for the waitlist to warrant a field expansion, we may raise the field cap.

A Discord server has been sent out to all teams registered currently.

March MSQBRank should be out in a few hours because of a delay caused by a robot infiltration. We are working to wrestle control away from the bots, but in the meantime, you can check out their AI-generated rankings here.
