    Is there any chance the tourney is rescheduled to a few hours earlier? Asian teams would really want to participate but the current time is 2AM local time...

    Finishing before 12PM ET(1AM JST) would be nice. Or it could be played at night like 8PM ET-12PM ET (9AM - 1PM JST)
    If the tourney can be rescheduled, I will announce the tourney in JP splatoon communities so that more teams can participate.
