Regarding BWC2016 Singapore Qualifier

Dear Players,

First and foremost, Bushiroad SEA would like to thank all our players for your fervent support at the Bushiroad World Championship (BWC) 2016, Singapore Qualifier.

Bushiroad SEA would also like to take this opportunity to apologize for causing distress among many players due to the mismanagement of the event. Specifically, there are two points that we wish to address.

Firstly, it has been brought to our attention that there was discomfort caused by our Bushiroad staff due to the improper tone used when speaking to players. This is unacceptable behavior, and appropriate action has been taken regarding this matter.
To prevent such incidents from happening again, we will work to better educate our staff in communicating with our players as well as the general public.

Secondly, we understand that there were complications in tournament registration that arose due to a requirement put in place that necessitates the submission of players’ deck lists during this process. While this has been common practice overseas for most major tournament circuits, this is the first time that this has been enforced in Singapore. We seek all players’ understanding on this matter, as we would like to foster a fairer and more enjoyable tournament environment for all players as well as to standardize all registration protocol across the globe.
As such, we seek the cooperation of all our players in preparing your deck lists beforehand for any major Bushiroad tournaments in the future.

We would like to assure our players that we are constantly working to improve our management process in order to enhance your overall tournament and event experience. If you wish to submit any feedback for us to improve, please direct your emails to sg_support@bushiroad.com.

We look forward to your participation in future Bushiroad’s tournaments and events.

On top of that, it may only be passed down until the 4th place winner. The approval of the passing down of the invitation/sponsorship is subject to Bushiroad’s approval and it is on case by case basis.

However, should the player that has obtained the higher position is not eligible for the sponsorship but he/she will still join the invited tournament (e.g. if he/she is from the same city as where the Continental Championship is held), the sponsorship will not be passed on to next player.

Players considered minors if they are below the legal age of the country of they are residing in.
