    This is disheartening, but the rules are clear: accidentally playing with an illegal list results in a game loss. Playing all 3 games with an illegal list equals a disqualification. I will treat Michelle's games as a concession, giving each of her opponents 8 points with an MoV of 140. It will take me a little time to recalculate the standings and I will notify those involved.
    For the record, I want to say that Michelle is a true hero for coming forward with this information. I didn't catch this mistake - and it was clearly a mistake on her part and not purposeful in any manner - and neither did anyone else throughout the day. I don't believe I've ever witnessed such an act of true selflessness and sportsmanship in gaming.  Michelle, you have my deepest respect. 
    EDIT: The floor rules aren't 100% clear on how to score a DQ loss, so the scoring may change. Doing more research.

    We all need your kind of integrity, Admiral, both in-game and out. I agree with everyone who said it's nobody's fault because it was a mistake, but it's a **** tragedy because everything indicates that you earned that win and deserved it. #thepeopleschampion

    The mistake could happen to anyone, but not everyone would have the integrity to self report it. Still the people’s champion.

    Just wanted to throw my support behind you too Michelle. This is really rough, and so disappointing. You've been so close so many times, and now to have it pulled* out from under you after the fact...
     
    *to be clear, no one is in the wrong here, just a tough situation.

    I’m sorry, Michelle. I could see how much the Prime win meant to you as you wrapped up the final game. 
     
    Your integrity is inspiring. I hope you make it to Worlds somehow, some way.

    Hey everyone, I just sent a message to Matt, but wanted to say something here.  I feel lousy, but I just realized I was playing with an extra Y-wing on the board the entire time on Saturday.  Looking back I don't think it would have affected any of my scores, not even the last close game (like it didn't do clinch damage on anything, or even get in more than a couple of hits the entire tournament), but I wanted to be honest with the community.

    Man, I really should have done better with this one than I did.
    Gene's massive fighter wing dug into my bombers - which is expected, I was just running them with ATN on the Destroyer as a bullet sponge and not really intending them for attack - but once a few went down and he pulled away I got overly-target-fixated.  Honestly should have just settled for the 6-5 loss and held back, but nope...landed a solid hit on his Quasar and with it wounded I got blood in my eyes...

    TURN 2 RECAP
    We had x3 10-1s and x3 9-2s.  The Dodonna MC75 Norra bomber swarm leads the pack with 20 points, followed by another Dodonna MC80/Pelta bomber list at 18, and then a pair of Garm bel Iblis lists with 17 points each.  The 2 Garm lists are very similar. One has a Liberty, Pelta, Yavaris and CR90A with Jan and Biggs, while the other has an MC-75, Yavaris, Jan, Biggs and Scurrgs.
    This round was much closer with a total of x5 6-5s, one of which was separated by only 8 points (267-259).
    For round 3 it's Dodonna vs Dodonna and Garm vs Garm!
