by the way, I was the guy, who said before that I could play at 15:00. I can play a bit earlier, will work, sry for the work

so the match will start at 14:00 greenwich time zone?
Also, in case you still don't understand, an example of the match schedules can be found below, this is how they were structured last tournament. :)

Sunday matches will start earlier and can really be flexed by only 30mins or so since it would delay all other games too. Saturday would be doable. I know that the time schedule sucks balls for NA players, but there is nothing i can do about it realistically.

The tournament is structured of multiple 1v1s.

Groupstage on Saturday. most likely 3 1v1s against other players in your group.

KnockoutStage on Sunday. Double-elimination Bracket with top players from each group.

The first matches of the day start at 14:00 Greenwich time, last time we had D group (last group to start their matches) starting at 18:00 GMT iirc. So the time schedule for Saturday is fairly flexible.
Oh ok, thx. Sry, it is my first one, so I'm kind of exited.

It used to be my first one last time, just my advice, don't get too excited or you'll lose :P and good luck!

Ok, thanks. Realistically I probably won't even make it to the knockout round. 8-)

If I get exited I'm getting a bit better. If I'm too ecited then I'm ok in 5 seconds... well, ok, I'll fail XD

Few things on the "get excited" and other factors i've noticed about players and how it impacts their play.
1. Rank doesn't matter in tournament play. Well ofc higher ranked player is excpected to win, but that isn't 100% true all the time.
2. Cokiness. "I don't need to practise since I play only 5* maps", seen it happen, no point in excplaining further why the guy went 0-2 in groupstage.
3. Confidence is good... aslong as you don't go overboard with it and turn it into cokiness.
4. Mappool randomness, I've seen lots and lots of good players fail because "mappool had too easy maps" or "I dont play AR7 ever", thats what the tournament is for, finding the best OVERALL player. Not the fastest one, not the best streamer.
5. Preparing opponent vise. This is a bit harder task to do in a 2 day tournament when you get to know your opponents 1day-15mins before the match, but i had a player in one of my earlier tournaments who could EASILY upset his group by quickly scouting through their plays and banning what was their best/picking what was their worst.
6. N E V E R G I V E U P. Dropping combo doesn't mean you can't win, always play to the end, maybe he fails or something.

What tbag said above is pretty much on point.
And I am sorry if i get cocky at times but its just my desire to win and the hype that makes me do it xD.

E: Nah, I'm going to ban my 2 worst maps

Sometimes it's better banning maps to support your strengths rather than hinder your opponents weakness. :P
