Hello,

Can you enlight me on the reason you use such format? Ive never seen such before, and it seemed to me that this will be a RPS format. Everytime bring a hard counter when you lose

The point is that we have only 3 predefined decks. So you have to handle every possibility with 3 decks. I guess it can be pretty interesting.

We chose a classic format last time and we wanted to use a different system this tilme to test whichever is best and we are convinced this one brings a lot of interesting tactics and way of thinking when it comes to match ups.

Enclase probably has a smurf in every elo region, we need not to worry about him :)

One thing remains: If he still has a smurf over 1500, does it have the cards he needs?

I think that it is not useful to send the decks now that tomorrow is going to be spoiled 5 towers and maybe the expansion set comes out before the tournament date.


In spite of that, looks nice, I may go in, got to change my shift at work for that ;)

There is no real " secure spot" , since the 64 competitors will be the 64 first registered on binary beast the day of the tournament among those who would have fill up the requirements we are asking

I have 1 question what about the new expansion? We are aloved to play with new cards or we are restricted to play FW expansion cards? I know expansion isnt out yet but it will be on 15th Dec

Dipl0mate

Unfortunately I had something come up that I have to do Sunday, so I've left the tournament. Someone hurry and grab my spot!

Hi

If possible I can play a stand-by role. I'm currently working on a big assignment, which I MAY finish before tourney starts tomorrow. If there are vacant seats, I may be able to join. I'll check in if possible.

If the stand-by won't work, nevermind :)

But think of it this way, NilliTrolls shouldn't be the only Danish troll in a tournament. You could have a surprise Danish Troll joining you!

And yes, I am ELO 1512 or something right now.

Thx a lot for everything organizers! Kudos to you - this was one of the best organized tournaments in DoC.

I have to say i was lucky. I'm a relatively new player and by no means i consider myself the best in the world. Also the deck choices of my opponents were sub-optimal. I'm known on this forum as the person who started the Cassandra fortune thread and i encourage everybody to visit it: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/802049-Fortune-Cassandra-Rush-(T1)-Overview . To be perfectly honest, playing and writing about Cassa helped me a lot because my opponents were choosing mirrors which was a bit to my favour.

It is very unfortunate that i was put against Oyau in the first match. He's such a great player and i'm sure he would have gone far.

If anyone is interested here are my decks:

Were can i find VODs????? I'd link to link them to Cassandra thread.

@bustio

thx, the thing is i am not that convinced that Cassandra is so overpowering but i've been proven wrong many times. Anyhow, we are preparing article on counters to Cassa and any pro is free to join and help; details are in Cassa thread under Current isuues.
