The initial proposed game format (subject to change, depends on # of entries):

The flights are following A drop B, B drop C format. Therefore, MD guarantee at least 3 games. WD should be about the same, as it's round rubin. MXD is 2 games at least.

Hey LB, do you have any clue on how much is the registeration fees ? Or are they still deciding ?

However, I think the management is still trying to figure out the final decision, as they are finalizing the sponsorship. I don't think the price will be changed significantly, but might be within several $ range.
For up to date information, I suggest you to contact BBC Management (Sunny) directly.

Up to today, I was told there are at least 130+ entries received already, highlighted by MD of 50+ teams.
The management was under discussion, to see whether there will be minor format modifications to be issued, due to the unexpected popular entries. Overall, the managment will do their best, to make sure the event run smoothly, to give as much playing time as possible to each players, as well as to make sure the events to be finished on time.
If there's any update regarding the final decision, I will post it here. Overall, just be prepared to have a fun day (games and raffle prizes ) and some good quality of games.
Myself will playing 2 events, as well as helping out the event management as I did last year. Hopefully, I can survive after a whole day of games, running and screaming.
