We had a strange situation occur today.  One of our members won the 1st round of the Alt tourney, but when he went to play the 2nd round, it told him he didn't meet the qualifications.  He paid for the Main, and entered it.  So, he's entered in both events, but if someone scores lower than he in the Alt, he has no chance to defend himself.  Anyone ever have that happen before?  Any idea WHY it happened?  Any idea what to do for it NOT to happen again?

I think I have read a post somewhere saying this has happened. 1 of the big societies I think it was. I'll try and find it and link it in here.


EDIT: Here are 3 posts with similar issues which have not been fixed (nor will they now I believe) - sorry alternates are a bit broken!

Thanks for the reply and the links.  Guess HB is not planning to fix the issue..............
