The unofficial word from RSI is:

-- There will be a July MI tourney instead of the usual July FtF tourney.

-- They are reportedly deciding between July 11 and July 18 as the tourney dates.

-- Since the ADM freeze is always 6 weeks prior, this makes the likely ADM freeze dates May 30 or June 6.

-- As a reminder for any recently returned managers, there is no basic freeze. Warriors are placed in basic classes based on their FE at the time of the tournament.

More details will follow as soon as they are discovered!

Further unofficial word from RSI:

-- They think they are going with July 19 as the tourney date.

-- This would put the ADM freeze on the weekend of June 6.

There were no details on the format or anything else. But it is probably safe to save your post-freeze minis requests for a week from now.

We have official word from RSI in this week's DM 102 newsletter:

Quote:
Summer 2020 Face-to-Face: In case there is any lingering doubt, the 2020 summer face-to-face is cancelled. It just doesn't seem wise to hold it, and feedback is that most of you would not be able to attend. Better to stay safe and stay at home, this time.

Summer 2020 Mail-In: So we'll hold a mail-in tournament this summer. It will be held on the weekend of July 17-19, 2020. We are still finalizing the format--look for the tournament announcement shortly after the freeze on June 6th.

The ADM freeze has been frozen. If you requested electronic copies of your mini-overviews last weekend to see where your ADM level warriors are classed for the July tourney, you likely received them on Monday.

Basic warriors will fight according to their FE on the day of the tourney.

The list of Challengers pulls was published in today's newsletters:

Quote:
NEW GRADUATES--FROM ALL ARENAS (INCLUDING CLOSED ARENAS)

For those of you who keep track of such things, a few additional warriors graduated from regular DM arenas (including closed arenas) since the last tournament.

WICKED WASP (35-4784) SATAN'S SWARM (418)
TYRANNICAL TICK (35-4786) SATAN'S SWARM (418)
EMPTY (72-7269) BASH BROS WALLET (873)
NOBODY HOME (82-53135) ROOKIE PINK 59 (8963)
CAN'T BEAT TUM (84-40978) THE GREAT TMM (7146)
LINT (84-49584) 4-LETTER DIRT (8504)
JANUARY O. IRONTAIL (84-25625) EVIL EASTER BUNNY (4553)
SHOULD BE FUN (85-29872) FRANKENSTEIN HUNT (5482)

Congrats to the grads. -- Green Eyes

Get 'em outta here! Let's clean up Challengers! Fairness and equity or else!

The tourney announcement has arrived. Important tidbits:

- The tourney is triple elimination.

- The TC prize for each class is 2 potions of max damage.

- They are offering stylemaster awards in EVERY CLASS. For the warriors with the best records of the nine styles that don't TC in each class, the prize is a +1 bonus potion. If an Advanced warrior wins the prize, it can only be used on a warrior in ADM or Primus with the same style. If a Basic warrior wins the prize, it can only be used on any living warrior on that same team. These prizes can't be sold, but can be traded one for one.

The tourney date is July 18. Strategies are due July 15. Other than the above twist, it appears to be a normal Mail-In tourney, just taking place in July.

In case you missed the all-arena ads, RSI is also running three Bloodgames arenas. DM 95 is a slow speed Bloodgames arena, DM 98 is a regular speed Bloodgames arena, and DM 99 is a mail-in style Bloodgames arena.

Hopefully this will keep us all busy this summer!
