Prizes for Access have been delivered already, while prizes for Pro and Amateur will all be out by the end of the week (but hopefully a majority by tomorrow night). Team captains please contact me for prize distribution.

There are quite a few people to give shoutouts to but first a big shoutout to Ryan from VolarEspots for sponsoring the majority of the prizes for this competition. We certainly didn't expect prizes of this magnitude for our first tournament, and we really appreciate the sponsorship. Also shoutout to Tommunist for throwing in a few more keys to fill out prizes for the Access bracket.

As for other shoutouts, I couldn't have done it without the excellent team behind this tournament. Thanks to Fear and Tonberry for both casting and admining the Amatuer and Access brackets. Thanks to Tommunist for helping with making sure this was the tournament that top level teams wanted, and as well thanks to Snowblind and Homer for being available for him to bounce ideas off of.

Also thanks to Ryno for being our ozfortress liaison and general all around helpful guy. Thanks to Russell for designing all the media for the night and helping out with the stream production.

There are many things about this tournament that will need to be added onto and improved upon. Please post here with any and all feedback about the tournament: your experience playing in it, watching it, and/or organising your team for it.

A big reminder that all the bracket threads for the upcoming VolarEsports One Night Cup are all currently posted. Please check in for your first match, make sure you add your admin, and get in contact with the opposing team for the first round matches.

I'd like to thank all the participants in division 5 for joining the competition. I hope you enjoyed your first OWL.. With twice as many teams to manage and fewer admins across the board, I'm regretful that I wasn't able to get to know the players as well as I normally attempt to, however I hope to see plenty of faces in future competitions as experience grows
