I would expect at least one team from Mac that I'll likely be driving up. If this is open, I'll either be playing by myself or with some noobs.

For the record, non-US sites are allowed to set open eligibility for this set as they please (all US sites are closed). We leave the choice as to whether to allow open teams outside of the US to site hosts, but we strongly recommend that schools require that currently enrolled students play with a school team.

Can we get final clarification on whether this tournament is going to be completely closed? That seems to be the "word on the street", but it's nice when such things are official.

The streets don't lie

The tournament will be closed, though we are open to making some exceptions
