You have no idea of which you speak!

I'd expect over 1000 people to sign up, and 5 or 600 to be inactive.

The skill differential between a brand new player who goes into D1 and a player who is just inside the D1/D2 border is very substantial, and that is true across the whole sequence of divisions. It's pretty much the case that basically, the last 32 or maybe 64 in a division are about the closest there are to -accurate- divisions, and the lower divisions will generally have 3 or 4 hundred people in them.

I'm one such person. I'll be in D2 this year, and I'll be eliminated by round 3 tops. Maybe 4 if I'm very lucky or whore songs very much. I have absolutely no chance whatsoever to win or even place, and I accept it and have fun anyway.

So please let's avoid the guarenteed string of "You put me in the same division as WHO!?!" posting that will come up when the brackets get posted, and just accept that the price you pay for not having to actually qualify to get in, is a better than average chance that you cannot possibly win.

Edit: ALso, since the D1/D2/D3 breakdown is the one that seems to make the most people have no idea where they will be:

Devonin, across 5100 gameplays, has 34 AAAs, and 239 FCs, with 54 skill tokens. My best AAA is a 6, with some 5s, and my best FCs are a couple 8s, and a bunch of 7s. I am most likely going to be placed somewhere around the middle to lower/middle of division 2. This should help you gauge where you are likely to end up.

Also, if you have -any- tier points, it's pretty much a given that you are D2/D3 minimum.
You are such a pessimist. Yet--it's also a pretty real fact. Each division is going to undoubtedly have it's really strong players though.

I also heard that Metigue and Wartime cheated, and if they cheat now, they get DQ'd. No worries there. xD

I have 81 Tier points, last year I had 1. I was in D2 last year. I'm pretty sure I have the capability to come in the top 10 in D2. I could be wrong though, I need to see who's in D2.
