Just a note about this column, I’m going to be taking over the back end of the Blackout Contest this season. We will be picking some good Blackout players to make it hard on you all. I’m also hoping to include more information here in the Weekly Results post as I get more familiar with the process. If you have any comments or suggestions let me know in the comments or look me up on Discord: benbenben7726
