Ugh I keep checking my email in case they send the results out early... 

I was extremely zen about the results until yesterday. Now I'm perpetually anxious, haha!

Can anyone who was in the final last year remember what time they sent the results out? Like, do they really do it at midnight, or is it like all the other competition rounds, i.e. any time from about midday onwards?

Any time between... well, now and midnight. That's the killer part. It's impossible to concentrate on anything else today.

Browsing their Twitter feed...looks like last year’s winner was announced at 9:17 PM ET.

100 MF winner was at 6:32 PM.

So could be any time, but it looks like they don’t wait until the 11th hour for overall winner results.

Trey is a nice person and tracked the last few finals results that he participated in:

FF 2017 - 30 min early
SS 2018 - 9 hours early
SS 2020 - 6 hours early

So keep refreshing those emails. LOL

(I don't know what causes them to post earlier rather than later so I'm imagining a very impassioned argument about the rankings at NYC HQ)

Ughhhh glad I’m not the only one obsessively hitting ‘refresh’ every 10 seconds. The not-knowing is killing me but somehow I also love it - as someone else said, right now we’re all Shrödinger’s winners LOL

Ah, the thrilling anxiety...

I had my email up on my second monitor but I couldn't see my inbox without turning my head so I put my main monitor on split screen... and I turned on notifications for NYC Midnight's tweets just in case they tweet about it before I get the email.

Every time my phone buzzes I panic.
