To move the tournament quickly into the elimination round, unfinished matches without any communication with me will result in zero wins, zero game points. To communicate with me please open a group message here on cardgamedb with me, yourself and the other player no later than Sunday January 24th stating your availability to play with your opponent. If the match is unable to happen I will use the communication log to try to determine a fair result.
Any player who has not reported any finished games 3 weeks into the tournament (Sunday January 10th) will be market for a potential drop the next week unless they communicate with me or report a finished match.
Given the amount of participants and the size of the groups, this tournament will have a 15-player single elimination round with the top 3 players per group being seeded! The first seeds in each group will be ranked by comparing their records using the above tie-breaker system. The top ranked 1st seed will become player "1A" That player's group will be group "A", the 2nd ranked 1st seed will become player "1B" etc for purposes of filling out the bracket. All first seeds have a round 1 bye in the Elimination Round.
Since the groups are not equal sizes wins and game points will be converted to per game for all first seeds.
Note: player 1A has the only first-round bye!
- Qualifying players must lock-in what decks they’ll play for the duration of the tournament by February 2nd 11:59pm. Deck lists will be submitted to a moderator (TBD) who will post all lists on cardgamedb.
- Seeding will be based on player rankings after the Group Round. Please see the image of the bracket for details of the match-ups.
- Players have 1 week to finish their match.
- Each match will be a best of 5. First player to 3 wins advances.
- During the first round where there is a clear higher seed, that player may decide what deck to play first. Later rounds decide by coin flip (except player 1A's first match)
- Players will alternate playing LS/DS the first 4 games.
- Keep track of your game points!
- Should a 5th game be needed to settle the match, the player with more game points earned in the match may decide which deck to play. If there is a tie flip a coin.
We are pleased to announce that our Winter Champion will work tournament organizers to create the next online tournament cardpool!
