Past final events were held open for qualifiers only up until x days before the event.
This is to prevent the event from filling before regulars on the series have a fair opportunity to register.
Coming down to WW right Dennis?
That's the impression I've gotten, though Kyle is the one who would know for sure. I heard he played in all of the WSS events last year. Whether or not it is "qualifier only" or just "qualifiers are first in line for pre-registration," I'm not sure. We'll update the site with more information, including what it means and what is needed to qualify for the finals when the Series has finalized and settled on the details.
