Late to the Game: Tourney Auto-Fail


I’ve only recently picked KCD back up and I am still in the From the Ashes DLC. I haven’t purchased the others yet (on the list), but I apparently gained a tournament quest? And apparently it is timed, wherein if you don’t attended before a specified time, which isn’t listed anywhere on the quest log, it autofails? And now all of the forum posts I see about it tell me that it is bugged so it will not happen again. On my current save I am too far away to attend in time, has this been fixed? Should I just give up hope of participating?
