That was an old tournament and it was my 1st month back. There was no "master tag challenge thread" back then and Sepi lost his master tag shortly after receiving it.
I'm using the tier 2 tournament as another route for players to receive a master tag. Since the master tag challenge thread is all but dead lately. http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,2734.msg59082.html#new
There are supposed to be 10 active master tag holders at any given time currently there are 9,
Furthermore after this tournament I plan to drop 1 or 2 more players from this list due to inactivity. We will continue to host Tier 2 tournaments until we have 10 active master tag holders, and we will continue to drop old master tag holders that fail to record at least 1 ladder game a month.
No master tag holders are allowed to play in the tier 2 tournament and So theoretically even Viruz could play in this tournament since he has no master tag. (thou don't worry, I would be shocked if he ever showed)
The Tier 2 tournament isn't the same as the Tier 3 tournament.
