Updated information!

Added to the original announcement:
Level boosting and ship/gear distribution available to those players who need it from 9am to 10am. Make sure to update your Testbed patches ahead of time and plan for time to train at a trainer with your new skills.
Be sure to continue to check that thread for updates, even if you've already signed up :)

The time grows nigh, folks! :-D

Some more info and updates from the sign-up thread - 'though you should still keep checking until start time:

Well make sure you upload the testbed 1.4.XXX patch and that it's updated. It takes awhile. Then create a character for whatever nation/career you are interested in. Players can recieve a boost to lvl 50 and ships/gear on Saturday from 9am to 10am before the event. Don't forget to take your new skills to a trainer and outfit your boat.
People make sure you download the testserver early! If you haven't been on test recently, it's quite a big patch
yep He is right! It IS a big patch. ALSO.. I have setup a ventrilo server for the event. I will be posting information for ventrilo and preliminary brackets for the tournament tomorrow night. So download a ventrillo client as well if you can. It will ease issues of cross nation chat.
You can get boosted to lvl 50, receive career skills and get ships and outfittings from 9am to 10am before the event. Fraxl and Rhaegar will be onhand to do this and can teleport you as well to Irish Point, if you are not already there. Just don't forget to outfit and train!
