Two players are currently DQ'd for this. One played under a hider nic on the 1st but was handled when it became clear who it was. That same player showed up last night but was excluded from playing and said nothing. I think all who played the last two nights enjoyed good games without the usual drama, and if this continues for a while, the culture will change to where no one will tolerate such behaviour which makes it easier to root out and prevent.
To your point, the DQ'd players will be allowed to return, but if they do not accept the new normal, we will permanently ban them. It will take diligence to enforce that since people do use hider nics, but it's the only way we can save the tournament as Lee will fold it if it continues like it has.
I want to get to where I can play again and others who gave up will come back, too.
