Correct, not set in stone.
Since turning off 1st turn NMR protect might make things easier, I could set up a poll if I heard a reason to turn it off other than just "it's not part of the rules" or something like that.


Oh, again my bad, thought I'd written somewhere (obviously not here, probably by PM) that turning off 1st turn NMR protection helps the tournament because it

1. guarantees a timely start to all games,
a) useful for keeping the tournament moving along / minimizing tournament length,
b) addresses a big issue for Round 1 Games A (2/1/1) since NMR reset means a delay of 6 days minimum for that start,
2. therefore minimizes overlap of simultaneous games A / B during their 'heavy negotiation' periods (especially Spring 2nd year),
3. provides an additional source of NMRs (though we hope those are rare) which the OP currently posits as one of the tie-breakers.

Great, thanks!

Even though tournaments are not my expertise, to me it sounds that Socratease has good points considering NMR protection off and resulting in better chances to stay on schedule. Just my 5 cents, if even that. :)

Oh Right!!!

So you will send us a PM when our game starts right? I'm guessing it will contain the password for the game.
