I really hope they can fill it! GLGL IronSquid - Awesome tournament, and of course awesome music as well (IronSquid produced 20+ songs specifically for the tournament - The most well known is probably this one:
Several player themes composed for this as well - MC's theme is especially awesome!
If you liked themes, we Might be able to do longer version of some of those !
I had my reservations when Iron Squid was announced, but the organizers have shown themselves taking the challenge seriously if optimistically. I hope the event succeed, because it can prove a new tournament space is possible between minor and major events.

ye, shouldve 7 winners and stephano as an invite. ezpz full
Indeed. If I was trying to sell tickets for a tournament hosted in France I'd pay Stephano to be in it. When you're running a tournament like this, with a lot of players in it who have really high skill levels but really small fanbases it pays to have at least a few invites so you don't end up with a bunch of people nobody wants to watch (which is what will happen if Symbol, Alive, Jjakji and Puma win their quarter finals).
With that said, it's been a really well run, well produced tournament so I hope it goes well for them and I'll be tuning in to the stream.
