Hehehe Just keep your eyes peeled for updates on the top thread.
A little change up perhaps is expected but its a familiar format from last years.

@Maicodama
Last year I released the tricks 3 months before the BKO, which was the shortest amount of time ever since BKOs began, and I felt bad about it. It's now 2 months and 4 days until this year's BKO. I know I've walked away from organising it, and you can do what you like as the new organiser, but I just want to say, as a player, I take the BKO seriously, and that if I don't get enough time to practice, then I won't be entering, because I don't want to do it half arsed. I know everyone's in the same boat, but that's how I feel personally.

So I really hope to see the divisions and trick lists announced this weekend.
Cheers, Void.

I'm sorry, but I have to echo this also

Hey Guys!

Deepest apologies for taking my sweet time on this. It is my first time after all.
You'll be glad to hear that the tricklists will be released tomorrow along with some extra tit bits. Kofi and I just finished the last part of the announcement vid this afternoon so it will most definitely be tomorrow.

I appreciate that people need enough time to practice. There isn't as many tricks as there were last year for the divisions and there are a few new changes also which mostly caused the delay. In addition, more sponsors have been added so we have a big pot this year to make up for the delay.

Much love as always from the rest of the ARKFam,
Maico
