Here’s a FAQ for those registering:
How big is this week's Purse?
The Champion's Purse size is based on the # of fighters (before any bonus donations).To estimate, put this in a calculator: 25,000 multiplied by the # of fighters, and then multiply the result by 0.6 (60%). The runner-up gets half that amount.
What's the min/max # of fighters? Will I earn money from a small group?
Thanks to our bracket tools, we can support anywhere from 2 to 256 fighters! If you're the Champ, you'll come out with more than you started with, no matter what the size!
How long will the event take?
The time will vary, especially depending on how many fighters we get. Based on past tournaments, the Grid-Iron is able to field 10 fighters in under 1 hour.
When/where do I pay my entry fee?
Entry fees will be accepted by me (Jakdaw Foxlauden) in one of two ways:
Pre-Pay: You can arrange to meet with me in-game anytime before the event. If I'm available, I will accept your entry fee, and upon request, I'll PM you a screenshot of the trade as a receipt.
During the Feast: I will be at the BMC Feast (an hour prior to the First Round), and will take all remaining entry fees at that time.
For your safety, please do not give your entry fee to anyone else (including other BMC Members).
Am I disqualified if I'm late?
If you haven't paid your Entry Fee by First Round, you will be considered disqualified.If you have prepaid your entry fee (see above), then your position is secured. That said, please be aware that this is a Blind Draw (the seeds are shuffled), and any fights you fail to appear for are automatically considered Forfeits. IF you know you are going to be late, please contact me ASAP. I will TRY to make other arrangements.BMC cannot guarantee any refunds once the First Round has started.
Count me in!

Thank you all fighters & spectators; I hope to see you again next week!
Thanks for a great evenings entertainment and congratulations to the winners.
Updated information for this weekend's event (2/22/15). Also added a FAQ. I hope this answers some of the questions I've been getting over the past couple of weeks.
Just a friendly reminder: The Feast (our Grid-Iron pre-registration event) begins at 5pm CST! This is a great meet n' greet for everyone at the event... spectators can meet their fighters, place bets, and even mingle with the VIPs as everyone comes trickling in for the main event! We're always happy to take on new fighters, and the prize gets bigger with every entry! You will have until First Blood (Approx. 6pm CST) to get your name in!
Request for ban on 'Shield of Ice' from the Grid-Iron.
"The nastiest, the foulest, the most feared arena in all of New Britannia."
I can respect that but just in case, check this out.
Shield of Ice - Rel.14 - Bug Post
To be honest the Crystal shield doesn't bother me in the slightest. In terms of the heal; it only does what quite frankly what a heal spell should do........the life spells for healing are just so poor (don't heal enough and take too long to cast) it's no wonder players look for alternatives.
Thank you Bambino for making the contestants aware of this and I would advise any contestants to compensate for this if you choose to enter the event.
So, we had a great event tonight! I, on the other hand, suffered from a myriad of technical difficulties. Thanks to the community for being patient with me!
As far as the Brackets go, it seems that the confusion was due to a mishap in a posting I made. It's been corrected, and is now posted as it should be. Thanks again for your feedback and patience! Next week, I'll have a guildmate dedicated to maintaining those accurately.

Thanks for the invite to the event. I appreciated the opportunity to PvP (even though I was only a level 16 lol). Fun event and met some cool folks.
Congratulations to the winners
We need to figure out a way not to let ppl stack. Maybe they should make it if you sit in a chair you automatically go out of war mode.. I got cheated against for first place using a deck exploit..It was smart he figured out how to do it but cheap none the less..
