I really, really hope it won't be the 16th, REALLY REALLY. Or hopefully, there are teams playing I don't care about early that morning at the esports convention I'm going to, so I can just arrive late. Crossing all my fingers and toes.

The 9th, I'll be on a flight, but I can easily get flight wifi and manage my group from there.

Last year we got the email 10/31 for an 11/8 sale... so I don't think we can call the 9th one way or the other until Friday.

I won't be there the 9th. Please be the 16th.

If CCI follows the pattern of Returning Registration (and this is a BIG if when you consider CCI & consistency), then it's most likely not Nov. 9th since we would've gotten an email about Open Reg today. I'm basing this on the fact that we got Returning Registration announcement on Monday, Sep 30th for a Saturday Oct 12th sale.

Then, there are those times when CCI gives us two days' notice.

Can never expect that pre-reg will be like gen-reg. I think they give more notice for pre-reg. I also seem to recall short notice (like 2 days) a couple years back. So who knows.

They want our money sooner then later... the last 2 or 3 years now, gen-reg has been in November. My vote's the 9th... but no later then the 16th.

Mark your calendars!

I am just hoping they don't go back to holding it in March!   The wait between the sales was awful.

I really thought there would be an email yesterday. I guess the 16th is looking more likely...

Will they lock down the registration portal before they announce?

I don't think we can call it over yet,  CCI is known for breaking patterns.    I could see them sending the a email today or tomorrow

Halloween would be the perfect day to send it.

If I recall, they always do lock it down before they announce. And I seem to recall at least a few times, people registered too late to be able to participate in registration. In other words, there was a (hidden) cutoff date for registration that was before the registration portal actually closed.

That sounds right.  They have posted for people to make a member ID, they usually do that when they are close to announcing the sale.

I was hoping for the 9th but no announcement yet so that means 16...
