WOW NASAT CAN BE USED FOR SUMMER OPENS AND MIRRORS AND STUFF

Post by AKKOLADE »

Hey if you're looking for a set to use for an open tournament this summer, you can use this year's NASAT set! This set will have it all:

*Very good questions by very good writers edited by very good editors,
*A difficulty that is challenging but still accessible, so everyone from the very best players to the very not best players can enjoy it
*Hosts will be encouraged to split tournament fields into tiers based off team strength
*Can these questions be read out loud and transmitted over the internet for people to play as part of a remote tournament, possibly run over software like Skype? EARLY SIGNS POINT TO YES
*if you don't want to host a NASAT mirror, you have to click here and tell my cat Ike you don't want him to eat.

thanks

Who is on the editing team for this tournament? Is the target difficulty similar to years past? The current description of the difficulty doesn't contain much content past "it will be good."

Eric MukWang Anshi will be the head editor. Target difficulty is still the same. A full announcement for the main NASAT site will be up either today or tomorrow.

At what point in the summer will it become available for mirroring? One the same day as the actual event or a couple of weeks later?
