The tiebreaker for the five way tie at 33rd went to Dorian Stotts due to them having the highest placement out of the other tied players. In the event where a player doesn't sign up for this event, they forfeit their spot in the event. If you haven't been sent a code please reach out to Zach Lesage personally or you may forfeit your spot in the event.
