Okay guys had a player unable to take part in the tournament, so I've restructured the 3rd and 4th round to make sure the 7 remaining players all get to play 4 games, as well as the finals layout.

Round 3 (Mountain Crossing) Saturday 30th May
10:00 UTC Alundra Vs Samajestay
~10:30 UTC AlphaLeopard Vs HappySmurf
~11:00 UTC HappySmurf Vs KazMx
~11:30 UTC KazMx Vs Taz

Round 4 (Ghost Lake) Sunday 31st May
10:00 UTC Uomonero Vs Samajestay
~10:30 UTC Uomonero Vs Alundra
~11:00 UTC HappySmurf Vs Taz
~11:30 UTC KazMx Vs AlphaLeopard

And here is the ladder so far (spoilers):
(Note, all players will play 4 games by the end of round 4. The 2 players at 1 game after round 2 are the opponents of the player who dropped out)

Round 1 games:
AlphaLeopard vs Alundra:
Uomonero vs Taz:
KazMx vs Samajestay:

Round 2 games:
AlphaLeopard vs Uomonero:
Alundra vs Taz:
Samajestay vs HappySmurf:

Here is a picture of the tournament finals games layout:
