I read the entire post, but I've highlighted the parts above to draw attention to what strongly gave me the impression that "OPEN GAMING on BGA" (whatever that is—it sounds good, though) would be happening on the three days specified.

Given that we're already on the 23rd but no further info has been posted here regarding open gaming, I'm wondering if this post was misleadingly worded and if perhaps the open gaming is to happen later? Or was it indeed originally slated for these past three days but subsequently dropped with no update?

Am curious to know if I should still look forward to more detail or let it go...
Please check my profile for a list of bugs that need upvotes so that BGA will maybe get around to fixing them.

This FAB-U-LOUS.

Are the tournaments you are organising real time - like they are at the real Expo? Would like to know if those settings will become available for all future BGA players.

This is great!

Unfortunately it was too late for me to register for the tournament I wanted this time - but I will surely try next year!

It would be really useful if in 2021 the news article about this event would be published around the same time that registration for relevant tournaments opens in BGA so that all those who are interested would be notified in time and could register (since after the implementation of the Arena mode the "tournaments" mode is less active and therefore you don't check it out that often - in my case the registration for the relevant MSO tournament (https://boardgamearena.com/tournament?id=55577) was opened at the beginning of July - so this would be perfect time for news article next year)! The article could also include the link to the calendar and tournament links for all events: https://msoworld.com/mso-is-open-for-registrations/
