I believe the finals of the first IPL5 qualifier start at 5pm EDT, and this tourney starts at 7pm EDT...

So... question: What happens if mTw & Dynamic split the first 2 games of the IPL5 qual. final? Will they be given more of a grace period, or automatically be thrown into the lower bracket of the TSM tourney?

Dan is a very flexible and a chill person, who is now working on contingencies.
Have some faith, he's gone above and beyond the call of duty so far and likely will again.
