I would again like to stress that you make sure you will be able to play in whichever tournament you want to play, because if you don't play somebody else who didn't make the cut could have played instead of you. So please be sensible! Thank you very much, and have fun.
As most of you know, the managers of PAW have called for a decrease in the workload for individual tournaments.
The best way for us to accomplish this is to implement cut-offs based on the PAW Entry Ranking. We will do our best to accommodate all players wishing to play, either by adding WCs to tournaments, or by adding an ITF tournament if the demand is high enough
It is a given that we will never be able to please everyone, and maybe some of you don't like playing lower-tiered tournaments, but I think it's most important to please the managers in this case. They are the most important aspect of this game, because running PAW with 100+ players is just an incredibly time-consuming task. So please, have some understanding for our situation. And as always, if you want to help out you can sign up over at:
