28.04 starting Date is a MAJOR INCONVENIENT for East European teams (at least) who celebrate INTERNATIONAL WORKERS DAY on 01 MAY (FIRST OF MAY) and due to it being on a Thursday the majority will eventually celebrate weekend prior to this date (27 Friday through 29 Saturday).
This means, that the competition will be missing A BIG AMOUNT OF PLAYERS that wont be able to play on 28 of April thus having less teams signed in or available.
Please consider changing the date of DAY 1 into a more convenient day and extend the registration window.
The way you change the date is a complete joke and unbefitting of a tournament of this proportions. I was about to write about the effects of you announcing the delayal only 20 hours from the start of the tournament when it struck me that you do not even announce it. Last time it took a thread from a random on the comp forum to get the word out and now it can only be seen hidden with small font on the top of this thread and by checking the schedule on the website that has been changed without any form of announcement.
I hope you do realize that the majority of all EU players, many of whom have cleared their schedule for this, once again will find out about the 3 days delayal only a few hours from when they believe is the starting point. And that is only if they bother to scrutinize the opening post of this inactive thread with a magnifying glass.
If you are planning on delaying something on short notice, get it out on the forums where everyone can see it - make a sticky or an announcement, write on the front page of the dreamhon website. The way you handle it right now is simply obscure.
Edit: Misunderstanding on my side, I assumed that the original postponement mentioned on forums was that from 23/4-25/4 but apparently it regarded the postponement to the 28/4. I do however still stand by that one in game message is far from sufficient in these matters and the information has been very unclear.
