How do I Opt in to the Just for Fun part?
Murphy was an optimist. There is no idea that can't be ruined by a few well placed idiots.

I'm off to EGX the first week, offline the second week, there is a reason I want to Opt in for the just for fun.

Well, I've registered, I doubt I'll make it out of the first week, lets hope I can make it to my Xbox enough to put up a fight!

All the 360 games on my tag I have now sold puts me at 13% removed, that is one tough entry requirement!

Edit: Just realised that is for the knockout rounds only. Really nice way of doing it, definitely should help reduce the comp becoming a preload fest towards the end.

Just a heads up, If you have games under the Xbox Game Pass or EA Access under ownership status, they are included in "Games Removed".

I had to change the status to owned for a few games to get below 10%

It also counts I started games with an unable to play status against you. I had to delete them all.

Add a bunch of games you haven't played to your game collection :D

How do I make sure games in my collection that I don't own anymore are not included in my pool of achievements?

Are DLC achievements included if you have started the DLC already aswell as your opponent? Just curious because there is some DLC I no longer own but if it's not included I'll just leave the whole game as 'owned'.

Set them as no longer owned.

First few weeks are the group stage so you should make it past week one.

Go to 'My Games', then there's a column with a page symbol and a small red stop sign. Hover over that and it'll say "hide from my games". Just click that.

That's what I've done with some games I no longer own anyways. (Hopefully the others I no longer own, but haven't unchecked, don't come up)

I'm a little confused (big surprise). So the announcement page says:
Games count as valid if they are:
In your Game Collection with an ownership status of Owned or Games with Gold

But the rules say:
To qualify for the knock out stage you must have less than 10% of your valid games collection not marked as "No Longer Owned" or "Don't Use in Contests".

That sounds like if you have something marked as "Unable to Play" or "Renting" or something, they don't count against the 10% requirement, but the achievements also can't be used. Could this maybe be clarified a bit? Thanks!
