Since the website still isn't properly recording, I went through the records and took note of all players that have earned a bye (or head start, if Tribbles) for a Continentals or Worlds event this year.

Players can earn a bye/head start that can be cashed in at any Continentals this year if they placed 1st or 2nd in any Nationals event, or if they won a Regionals event (or placed 2nd if the event had more than 10 players).

Players can earn a two-round bye (or double head start) at Worlds by winning a Continentals event in the same year. A second-place finisher earns a one-round bye or head start at Worlds.

Due to a limited number of events caused by COVID restrictions, OP has ruled that any earned bye (earned in 2021) that did not get used in a 2021 event may be carried over to 2022. i have recalculated the earned byes working forward from the beginning of 2021, adding and removing as appropriate.

Players can also earn a bye or head start for both Continentals and Worlds in a given year if they have reached a pre-announced threshold of Masters points in the previous year. This bye overlaps with other earned byes and does not get handed down nor cause a hand down. (There were no Masters events in 2021, so this paragraph does not apply.)

I will try to keep this list updated, checking roughly once a week for completed events that will add to this list.

Well, even if it was working, it's currently difficult to program correctly with COVID restrictions allowing byes to carry over. Difficult to track which are used and unused, which is why I'll be keeping the manual list this year.

We've had our first Regional tournaments conclude! Michael Van Breemen wins an online 1E Regional, but already has a 1E Continentals bye, so the bye is handed down to Joseph Wisniewski! 2E Regional bye hands down to Christoher Jansa!

(Say, could we sticky this?)

EDIT: 2E Regional added too.

Sticky is done. Congrats to Joseph! MVB also won the 2E ID Draft event, and I think I got 2nd, but we both already have byes so we shall see who gets the handed down!

That event hadn't processed when I checked yesterday; I've added it now. That bye hands down to Christopher Jansa - congrats!

You are correct! Casey gets the Continentals bye since you already have one. Casey also won a Tribbles regional and earns a Continentals head start! The list has been updated.

I know for sure Joe Kallstrom picked up the Tribbles Head Start and Kevin Jaeger grabbed the 2E bye, as they were your respective winners. I also *think* Mark Muston picks up a 1E bye due to hand downs, and that would be awesome for him as he intends to come to Continentals with Kevin. :cross:

Given how spread out things are now, can we tweak the system so an Earned Bye is good until used (and keep it to a maximum of 1 per player)? I've lost count how many Regionals I've earned a bye at that I wasn't able to use because I couldn't get to Continentals that particular year.

Perhaps in the future, but right now we have 3 years of Byes we need to burn off this year due to COVID.
