    TOURNAMENT PROGRESS / RULES

    Authorized format in the tournament : STANDARD

    All the games are in Bo3 except the final in Bo5.

    We won't ask any decklists, we trust you. But if someone is caught with cards that are not part of the Standard format, he will be automatically disqualified.

    For this Platoon World Cup, we will apply a ban system on heroes, all the informations concerning the ban system will be available on your match reports.

    Minimum number of decks needed : 3 (This number is explained below), no maximum.

    Before the game :
     The two participants will need to go on the match report assigned to them in the tournament tree.
     Think about contacting your opponent In Game to plan your match.
     For this tournament, we apply an heroes ban system :

    In every game, both players will have the possibility to ban 2 heroes, each one at his turn according to the following method ABBA:

    Player A (player present in the top left corner of the match report) ban 1 hero
    Player B bans 2 heroes
    Players A ban a second hero.

    Following this process, the game between the two players can only be played without the heroes that have been banned on the previous step by them.

    Presuming that you won't ban your own heroes, this explains why we suggest you to have at least 3 different decks. However, you can have as many decks as you want. You don't need to give decklists before your games to us or your opponent. The only restrictions are not to play heroes that have been banned for your game.

    Do no stress about the ban system, you will find all the detailed explanations about it in your match report

    After the game:
    The winner of the game will need to :
    - Give the score in the match report comments.
    - Put on the match report the replays of every round renamed “Player1vsPlayer2Roundnumber”. This is mandatory.

    In case of dispute, replays prevail over the rest. If no replays can be given, the game needs to be played again.
    In case of game crash / bug, the game need to be played again.
    In case of disconnection of one of the two player, the remaining player is the winner.

    PS: Also a huuuge Thumbs UP ! for the ban-system. This could create more diversity, as we won't just see the same 3-4 heroes over and over again (unless ppl will just play the next "best 4" heroes *lol*). Eager to see how this will work out !

    I also didn't get in. WTF?!

    The thing is, I have already validated participation TWO freaking times (plus registration) before they threw me out.

    What are they, like requesting validating the entry every 2 days?! WTF?! What the hell kind of non-sense is that?

    Lame. And very unprofessional, platoongaming.. very unprofessional. Ever occured to you that there are people who don't check their email every day trigger happy to validate the participation like X-th time for the ONE tournament which they already registered AND confirmed?! Blah.. just.. lame..

    edit. Ok, Ok, now I see.. registration will take MULTIPLE steps. OMG..
