View Full Version : Special Deckbuilding Rules Tournament! Open for everyone!

06-04-2015, 09:23 PM
Hi guys,

Im gonna take a shot at organizing a tournament for you guys! First three Players will be rewarded with Seals by BB_Momi!

As for the Rules: We will Play Standart Format, but with two changes 1. You cannot Play more Cards than the Minimum deck size of 59 Cards. 2. Theres a list below with Cards that you cannot use in any of your decks. The rounds will be played in best of three, the final will be played best of 5. You may Change your deck between two games. The mode will be single Elimination. The Pairings will be decided randomly, I will post them in this starting post for every round. I will participate myself but be excluded from the prizes. I will accept any number of participants that Register in this thread before the Registration Closes on Sunday the 14th of June at Midnight CEST. If the number of Players doesnt fit for a Regular Single Elimination Tournament some Players will win the first round by Default, after that Noone will win by Default except if their opponents surrender or dont Show up. If Players win the first round by Default I will definitely not be among them. The results of your games will be reported in this thread. You dont have to post how the game went and what decks were played, but in the Spirit of Fairplay i expect both participants to Report the result in here. If one Player refuses to Report the result or the two results reported dont match i will request the replays to be sent in. A Player who refuses to Report the result will be banned from my next tournament, a Player who lies about the result of his game will be banned from all of my upcoming tournaments. If you have a disconnect in one of your games you lose that game, except if the Opponent offers you to exclude this game from the match. If you use a Card that was forbidden for this tournament in a game, you lose that game, except if your Opponent offers you to exclude this game from the match. You get 2 days for every round to complete plus the remaining time from the previous round if it was finished before the time expired. If the match wasnt played within that time period the Player who had less online time during that time will lose by Default. For that purpose all the Players who want to participate have to add me to their friend list ingame, otherwise the Registration will not be accepted as completed. If I see both Players online at the same time but the match isnt played anyway, both Players will lose by Default. Let's have a lot of godd games and loads of fun! ;)

Me too :)

06-05-2015, 08:01 AM
decided to leave this game, but this sounds fun :)
in if its possible.

06-05-2015, 10:34 AM
Will this tournament be all in the same day during the weekend or will it span across multiple days like the bi-weekly tournament ?

06-05-2015, 11:19 AM
The tournament will be like the biweekly tournament, except you will only get 2 days to complete your matches. However if the round is finished earlier than that you will get the remaining timw from the previous round on top. Everything is explained thoroughly in the rules.

@Pawel999k and DNA1985R: Please send me a friend request ingame, I will add you to the tournament after that.

06-06-2015, 03:21 PM
Where are you champions?

Affects my deck slightly, but still - I am in :)

06-09-2015, 11:47 AM
Do you not fear an omnipresence of Siegfried and Anton ? Barracks is not banned but you have weakened several counters, like Namtaru who loses Frozen Wave and Boneyhard or the champions who need Arkath's Wrath. Do you think that banning Construction is enough ?

06-09-2015, 12:11 PM
@atord-Nordos: Please send me a friend request ingame to complete your Registration, ill add you to the tournament after that.

@Lyrisse: Im actually not the least bit concerned that haven will dominate this tourney. They lose 3 staples from their deck. While Campfire and Construction only decrease their consistency, id say that losing path of the ancestors hurts them the most. Yeah frozen Wave was a good Counter for those decks, but it had to go because otherwise frozen wave Flyer decks would be all over the place. Barracks decks will still suffer from geyser and ice Meteor since they cant defend against that as good as before. Also a deck like Shalan can now enjoy its full Combo potential in that matchup without being completely shut down half of the turns by path of the ancestors. Im actually concerned about a few decks that might be too strong under These circumstances, but haven is not among them ;)

I think this is the goal of the tournament. Play Siegtard and Retandton, and ban all card which can hinder the strat. So it will be so fun... Because except it's a random ban, I have no explanation about ban this cards because the strongest still not ban...

06-09-2015, 06:41 PM
I'd also like to participate :)


06-10-2015, 01:06 PM
I will join even though it might be difficult to find time during the week to play.

06-10-2015, 03:28 PM
This looks insteresting, I'm in.

IGN: Throyzen

If this ends up being a great experience you could try this in Open.

06-10-2015, 07:51 PM
I would do open only if a decent amount of Players assures their participation beforehand. Because Open is way harder to Balance and attracts Overall less People. Id like to have figured out standart first, before I jump into Open. Also the tournaments Need to have a solid amount of Players. Id like to have 16 Players or more for this one, maybe you guys can help with that and invite some Players from your friends list?

06-12-2015, 08:10 PM
@Throyzen: If you wanna participate, youll Need to send me a friend request ingame, otherwise your Registration wont be complete.

No, ist all fine you were right on time! Still about one hour left, the countdown is running! :D

06-14-2015, 11:27 PM
So everyone, the Pairings for Round 1 are finally up, Deadline for this Round is Midnight on Tuesday the 16th of June CEST. As said before some Players Win by Default this round, those Players are Pawel999k, ToReRo09103, Throyzen and Melo.On. All other Players please check in the starting post for your Opponent and Play the matches as soon as possible. Also I highly recommend to everyone to read the rules once again before jumping into Action to avoid unnecessary game losses. Also check for the deck sizes at the start of the game, remember you are only allowed to Play 59 Cards and if something is wrong with that you can notice at the start of the game and simply restart the game after the issue has been fixed. That way a game loss wont be necessary. Also anyone who wants to share some replays of his or her games is highly welcome to do so here in this thread. Please also leave some comments on the meta of this tourney so I can improve it for the next time.

And then last but not least: Good luck and fun to everyone!!!
