Looks fantastic, I've been eagerly anticipating an announcement recently after stalking Dan Dinh's stream.

Panky casting maybe, I see.

I hope you guys realize London is GMT. CET (Central European Time; Amsterdam, Paris, etc) is GMT+1.

Sounds great, I'll try and see if I can get a team for this.

I think there are some pretty good EU teams that need a tourny to get on to the scene, this might be the one.

Actually, we're currently on BST (British Summer Time) which is GMT+1.

This first tournament is invite only. In the future things will open up.
There will likely be non pro events later as well if past years events are repeated.

I know what time it starts, but what order will the games be played in? I'll get up at 4 if I have to, but it would be nice to know when each game starts so that I can just set an alarm for the TSM game.
