Hey guys, has anyone filed a report on it? My friends and I were going to get a team, and now they're in and I cant join, it was working yesterday but not today, maybe we should all just report it? They also sent me a invitation to join the team, but when clicked, it sends me to the page above saying "Sorry but the email registered to this account does not match the invitation email address. Select "Join Team"" but there is no "join team" button...

Well this just is not a very user friendly site. My team had some trouble joining and I guess that is why they changed the registration deadline. Now all the plans that my team mates made to be around on the original start day are messed up.

We had someone have difficulties joining until we figured out that teams have a 5 person limit, and we already had 5.

1 million gold!!!!!!! yeah right, among the first 128 teams which translates into less than 3k gold per participant if you manage to be in the top 128 teams...I suppose the better your team does, the better the gold prize but still I do not believe that even first prize will reach 10k gold per player...but hey 1 million gold does catch the eye lol... marketers should be known as marketeers.

Well if you read closer. Those who enter this tournament! yes it is for gold but a lot of people have entered this tournament not for the gold but to support VETERANS. That's is my reason for this to have fun and support our Veterans who deserve more than we can ever give them for their bravery and sacrifices they have made for their country!
