The registration process is a weighted lottery. We do this to ensure the tournament registration is as fair as we can make it. We'll allocate spaces based on a number of scoring factors to ensure DUFFA Hat is as good as we can make it.
We understand that lots of players like to come with their friends - please register together - if one person in a group gets a space from the lottery we'll invite the others in the group. This actually may increase your chances of being successful.
PLEASE be honest on your registration form, hat tournaments only work if we all uphold The Spirit of the Game!

Q: How can I improve my chances of getting a space?
A: Be honest! We review all player ratings and we reward honesty. There's also a space on the registration form for you to tell us in under 250 words why you should get a space. If you want you can add YouTube links, offers of bribes or just basic pleading!
Q: I want to come with my friends - will it affect my chances?
A: Signing up as a group will probably IMPROVE your chances... that said solo-registrations won't be penalised either, just be honest!
Q: But I've been every year since 2008 / I've never been... I MUST get a space!
A: Tell us this in the registration notes... we might take it into account!
Q: When will I know if I have a space?
A: After we close registration at 00:00 on Monday 22nd of May we hope to start sending out the first offers of spaces, around Sunday 28th of May. After this point everyone else joins the waiting list and will be offered spaces where people fail to pay in time or drop out of the tournament.
Q: If I get offered a space what happens then?
A: We'll send you instructions on how to transfer the registration fees - you'll have one week to pay. If you need more time for a Student Loan or wages please email us straight back and we can hold the space for you. If you're going on holiday or won't be able to check your emails around the 28th of May please let us know in the registration notes.
