All readings of Vaughan's et. al's "Untitled East Asia" packet have been completed and the packet will be uploaded to the "2020 Internet Charity Tournament" entry on the archives shortly.

And again, thanks to all who donated and had fun at this event. Stay safe, y'all.

Re: SUN HS Only Closed Discord Mirror [May 3]

Stats are up, but there is some error with a round not being reported that I don't fully understand.

Once my semester is over, I will figure out, and fix this. I apologize for any inconvenience, but this is not my highest priority right now.

If you find any other stats errors do let me know.

Re: It's Time To D-D-D-D....Duel! (Challenge: Columbia vs. Chicago)

You know, I'm curious. If this were to happen I'd love to see some type of score bug implemented for the hypothetical live stream to give it a better look. I volunteer to at least help figure out how to get a score bug to work, and perhaps other logistical aspects, contingent on the date.
