If this is true, then some of The Best of The Best like CuCu99, Rancord, Hydramarine or even last year's 2nd place MnM_vs_Smarties can't compete. How is that "best players in the world" competition?

Also... The North American Live Finals are in september, but the Wildcard is in August.

How then, is the North American 2nd place person supposed to compete in the wildcard if they haven't even become 2nd place yet?

Too little info to even bother registering. We dont know if we will have to play with our decks (totally fair right? nergal's ftw) or would every player get an equal chance by playing with deck chosen from a premade set of cards?

What happens if servers crash? Same deal like with swiss and jackpot tournaments or something different? Too little info to even bother registering, excluding players from specific countries is just disgusting.

Hi guys! We removed those countries from the website because, of course, it causes confusion and it will be open to much more countries! We will whitelist more and more countries as the days go. The hard part here is that we have to get rules for EVERY country where we are hosting the tournament, so unfortunately, we'll have to exclude some countries where local regulations doesn't allow this kind of tournament. I can tell you, for example, that we won't be able to support North Korea, as their regulation doesn't allow a championship to include elements of "luck". As DoC is a mix of luck and skills, we won't be able to support online qualifiers there. There are other examples like this.

We want to minimize the risk of bad surprises and legal issues, that's why we are trying to do our homework and explore the rules of different countries.

Our goal is to include the most players possible, at the same time, if we commit ourselves to offer those players a flight to Paris, we want to make sure it's legally doable (and that your government will allow you to take that flight) ;)

To me this makes absolutely no sense. There should be a separate queue where only people registered for the event could play, something like the Jackpot ladder.

Maybe at some hours of the day it would become hard but at regular play times for the majority of players it wouldnt.
Do realize that if you make 50-0, something not that hard in Elo, you then have the choice of either risking your rating (lol) or stop playing ladder for a month. Does this sound reasonable ?

Meh, whatever... I dont care about this anyway but its decisions like these that keep throwing me off the game.

Enclase

Did you even think about the things you do? All what you reach with this stupid system is, that everyone is trying to get a good statistic for 50 games (or the point, where he is thinking that he has a winpercentage that is good enough) and after it he will stop playing for this month...and if he is clever, he will find other games in the time where he cant play rankeds anymore...

Really. Im sad about so much FLOWERINESS. Hearthstone, Hex & Co. will crush you finally and after it you will maybe realize, that you have destroyed the cardgame with the, probably, biggest potential because of wrong decissions and incompetence over and over.

...but...why am i even talking about this. Nothing will change anyway - you just have not learned how to act like a professional developer - and you will never learn it (PreRelease-Event, Swiss-Bugs without compensation, delay of the expansion without compensation, still no new matchmakingsystem, no balance-patches since the last expansion 'League of Nergal - Die Haven!', funny randomqualifiers for your 'who is the luckiest guy and right now randomly at our liveevent'-worldchampionship...only a few examples for things, what a serious company would never let happen) ...and this is it, what will break the neck of this game really soon...and you know what? Its completly deserved.

im polish but i live in ireland
am i allowed to participate in the online qualifiers?

i assume that most of the high elo players play 10-40 games a day
in order to get the best possible win percentage over the course of the month it would be wise imo to play between 50 and 100 games total
that means that after a couple days of playing the player might be afraid of playing a single match for the rest of the month
i would like to play your game for more then 3 days a month ... so my 2nd question is:
when does the registration period expire?

all of this could be easily avoided by makeing the quilifier in a seperate queue like jackpot/swiss
such a bad decision makeing on your part guys
its hard to not agree with Enclase
i really like your game but im getting dissapointed over and over again

1st of July, so the start of the 'qualification' for WC'13.

I thought lets play a few duels.
In my 2nd game someone unannouncedly turned off the power of my entire appartment...

20min later when everything is back on, I play my 3rd game. Game crash on turn 2...

After asking a CM i had this answer : jackpot & swiss tournmanent should be playable without any influence on our ratio. He can't give me a sure answer.

The worst in this case, is that you only need to be 1100+ at registration, after that your elo seems doesn't matter at all.

So, if you're motivated, the easiest way to be qualifier :

- Register at 1100+
- Freeloose on jackpot tournament to be 501 elo.
- Faceroll 10-0, freeloose again to 501
- Repeat until 50-0.
Now you can rush your elo again on swiss tournament & jackpot.

Enjoy our final ranked with :

4 people 50-0,
10 people 49-1
& 25 people 48-2 ... how to choose the 16th best (lol) players ...

Like a friend of mine says : "it look like it's a 8 years old kid who take all important decision for this game."

If someone is willing to go through so much I have nothing but respect for the effort :D

But seriously, that's not gonna happen. I can asure you. I have personally reported players for lowering their elo and farming noobs and saw Ubisoft take necessary steps to punish them.
And imagine, if we see some random players during the month popping out from nowhere and suddenly get 50 winstreaks we will all try to find them on ladderboards and pay close attention to them.
Also, lowering your elo on purpose is against the game rules, it's forbidden and bannable.



After asking a CM i had this answer : jackpot & swiss tournmanent should be playable without any influence on our ratio. He can't give me a sure answer.
I really need a sure confirmation on that.

Only games where your ELO is 1100+ will be taken into account. So lowering your ELO in Jackpot will only waste your time.

Ok, so the standings have been reset. Unfortunate for some (zzzPinkzzz and DerErklarbar among others) but I guess the most fair to everyone else.


To be honest, I'm afraid to play any games now. I have not seen any official announcement that the standings are reset, or adjusted, or that it's maybe a fault again. Some explanation would be really helpful right now.


Furthermore, now it seems reset anyway, maybe we can adjust the whole system of 'qualifying'? It's too luck based. Many players can run a deck that goes 50-0, but are dependent on non-skill variables, such as server stability, game crashes and the awkward 'I-counter-everything-but-normal-decks type of decks'.

DonŽt know what games are counted. Anyway, I only wanted to play those 50 games and leave it for this month.
Had 10:0 Wins... DoesnŽt count anything, but IŽll quit it until things are really clarified!
Horror how this organisation is done... Sorry

07-05-2013, 02:34 PM
As far as I can tell, the rules clearly state that it's the win percentage of JULY normal matches. It doesn't matter when you start playing or when you register, as far as I can understand, the register is just for your name to show up in the table. Even if you register at the end of the month, it will still count the whole month or else people would just register at the end of the month and do the 50 matches then.

I believe whatever matches people played, already counted. The results that show in table might not be the correct ones and it might be that they are trying to fix.

If it starts counting when they say or when people register, then the system is even worst than I thought.

I'll get them to you as soon as possible. Sorry on the delay. Remember, I'm here to make this tournament the best it can possibly be. If there are concerns, talk to me. I'm fighting for you guys. :)

Alright, I've managed to gather as much information as I could. Here is what I have found out guys.

-The qualifier is running from the time that the leaderboards were posted through the end of the month. The leaderboard as it sits right now is correct and will count all regular duels from now until the end of the month.

-There is no advantage to registering later. If you register on the last day of the month, all of your matches from when the leaderboards went live will still be counted.

-Finally, I've tried to put together all the most common questions/answers in one thread. Check here and let me know if you feel something is missing: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/779383-Frequently-Asked-Questions-amp-Answers

Please let me know if you guys have any other questions or if you run into any other situations that call for clarification.
