I love this game and I get sad when people say they are losing interest in the game.

So I got a idea for a tournament that will give you something to look forward every Sunday.

Starting Monday 11th the first weekly paypal tournaments will take place and all the replay will be stream on my twitch channel on Sundays.

Here are the details: pairings will be announced on the Sunday before the tournament.

The rounds will be play the following way
Monday 11th: round 1
Tuesday 12th: round 2
Wednesday 13th: round 3
Thursday 14th : round 4
Friday and/or Saturday: finals

Player will have to contact their opponent and choose the time for playing the games for the rounds. after you play your match the winner will have to send me the replay before the end of the day gmt-0400 eastern daylight time example: Monday by 23:59 @mariosbel@gmail.com. The next round will be announced here by the next day at 02:00 am.

games will be play on best out of 3.

Players can change decks after every game.

Tournament.
1st place 25$ as paypal gift
2nd place 10$
3rd place 5
I know is not much but this is just the start after the first tournament I might Double the amount.

Is gonna be a 16 player tournament.

Format is gonna be modified standard.

BanEd Card.
mother namtaru, invoker of death (1/2/0
kal-aazar invoker of agony
Mass rage.
barracks limited to 2


Player so far.

Nice idea! thanks!

I thought about joining, but then I realized there will be lots of Kal-Azaars and decided not to.

Maybe next month. ;)

Sounds really cool.

I hope you make some interesting deck rules to keep it from being a spam fest of the same decks.

I have some ideas for tournaments myself, but I never have any time to organize them. I'd be happy just playing some odd swiss with people for fun, this game really needs a better messaging system.

Great initiative!

However, a lot of people cannot spend weekend for tournament. May be, it will be better to prolong tournament over the week, with 1-2 day for turn. And use Sunday Stream to comment replays of tournament. This much approach is much easier for time management. Also such type of rules permit to increase number of participants.

What are you think about it?

What is the format/time of the tournament?

The format is gonna be stardar with 3 banned card kal, mother namtaru and mass rage.

And the time will be from Monday 11 to Saturday 16. For more details I edited the main post.

Which mother namtaru is gonna be banned? Also i would like to make 2 other suggestions for bannings so that the tourney will be more fun. First of all Dhamiria, i saw that you wanted to ban combodecks by excluding mass rage, but dhamiria lock works without mass rage and is really awful to Play against. And second if there are no Combo and stall decks we should get rid of Time Jump that Card is annoying as hell and only produces one undeserved win after another. Would really like it if we hadnt timejump around, but only if it isnt needed to beat stall decks.

1/2/0 namtaru.
in my opinion time jump is not op. As for dhamiria let's see what happens this is just the first tournament we can adjust the ban list as we do more tournament. Thanks for all the suggestion I really appreciate then :)

I know is not much but this is just the start after the first tournament I might Doble the amount.

40$ cash prize is 40 more than what Ubisoft would give. That's nice. :)

About restricted cards, without Namtaru to counter Anton and other ******ed stackable decks, I would recommend to limit Barracks to 1ex. :p

05-10-2015, 09:31 AM
This sounds like a nice idea,but imo the rewards shouldnt be money.
You should use that 40$ and make 3 prizes which are known beforehand.
The prizes would go to top 3.
If a lot of people signs in you could hold a double turnament or just make qualification round which is for free.

If not you are turning mmdoc in to a gambling game in the range of poker and such.

why souldn't it be money ? what else seals ? seals have little utility while money have real not to mention you can buy seals for money while you can't refund seals for money. Look at Hearthstone or LoL they are competitive games not because of the games themselves but because of what is at stake : money

Well,I am not saying the reward should be seals if not money.
I am saying anything else.

A toy,some cards,something from the store to eat like chocolate bar or something.
Obviously that the turnament holder has to send those items.

I would apreciate such a reward more than money or seals.
Because seals are just ingame for mmdoc,while money seems too "grey" akka not important or special.
Also if the reward is money then we will see all kind of ****ty players using "top" hack decks to win the max amount of money.

Money is much more convenient.

The guy that take care of organize this should not be critizise for his choice of making tournament for money. It is a good idea and there is nothing wrong about that.

If you want to organize a tournament where the prize are s3x toys instead you are free to take the innitiative and organize it, nothing prevent you from doing that =) (but please new and clean ones, not already used ones, that would ruin the fun)

I am not saying it must be toys.
That was just an example.
And the prizes would be known before the turnament so people that dont like them dont have to enter.
The prizes could cost more than 40$ total if more people enters.

As I said,money will attract wrong type of players.
If it were some prize instead of money I would consider entering,but I doubt I would win anything but for money dont really care.

Instead of asking something, take the initiative and do it. If he can do it you can do it. Stop begging and do something.

You think it will attract the wrong type of player ? So what then just don't participate. And again there is no proof of that, and there is no proof that the "wrong type of player" wouldn't be attracted by any type of tournament. This is just hypothesis.

Asking without being willing to do the effort of doing it yourself is being demanding. That guy did the effort of doing a money tournament, he is doing something good and i salute that kind of effort.

well,if I had the will and time I would,but I dont so I am stuck at suggesting.
I hope he will think about what I said,if he holds another turnament in the future,cuz this one is already set.

I'm sorry to hear that. if you guys don't get a chance to play I'm probably gonna give the win to him since I know is gonna be hard for you and the other players to get a chance to play because they are European and you from north america.

If there's another tournament, and I hope there will be one, please start announcing it 3 weeks before with clear rules. And maybe add a clause to cancel it if there's not enough players + wait/backup list. --> I think the first one has not been taken seriously. Probably partly because it lacked coverage and time to spread, poor initial english post that didnt help us believe it was serious, rules added on the rush (it's good to be flexible but better discuss these before starting inscriptions, no ?), in a word the organization was sloppy.

Get support from active members of the community, also ask CMs for help: the only thing this game has right now is some poor CMs trying to keep the player base interested with all kind of events, involve them!

I think this first tournament is a good learning experience. ;)
