THE TOURNAMENT HAS ENDED!!!


PRIZE:  Thankyou MvdL/Eikeltje for an under $10 game to the winner of the tournament!  Players like this truly make OUR experiences better!  Thank you again!

Note:  I just want to encourage everyone to help eachother practice!  There's nothing better for competition than friendly encounters. ;)  Last tournament some of us would get together and play with and against the decks we are to face for eachother and it worked out great!  So don't hesitate to join and look someone up on the Steam The Planeswalking Dead Group for some practice!  We also have a lot of solidly good players and competitors in this competition, so if you are new, don't hesitate to ask for help!  Most of us don't bite...most... ;)

Daily Updates 03/22/2013!!  I will routinely erase the previous update every day (when I wake up and look on the board for the first time, anywhere from 7am-10am Eastern) to recap yesterday's wins and losses, etc.  We have our new Champion, you're truly, !Flush!

TIME SCALE UPDATE 03/22/2013:  Our Champion has arrived!  All hail me!  !Flush!

Tournament Start: 03/06/2013  Tournament End: 03/22/2013 

General Rules & Guidline:
 

I believe that a good player can play ANY deck vs. ANY deck and win (more times than not).  This is why I am running a random deck tournament.  To test who has the ultimate skills in DotP.  Each player will play vs. another player in a double elimination Challonge bracket, playing the best 2 out of 3 games.  As mentioned in the title, this is a ONE VS ONE tournament.

How do we know it is random?  I'll make sure it is, trust me, it is not hard.  If you do not trust me, do not sign up.  Before each match I will randomly pick THREE decks from the entire deck pool, this includes ALL Expansions and ALL Deck Packs currently available at the time the tournament begins.  If you do not, or cannot, have all decks available please do not sign up for the tournament.  No one will use the same deck within each match, although both opponents CAN end up with some of the same decks. For example, !Flush vs. Anon: !Flush can have GG, Anon can have GG, but neither one can have GG "twice".

To add a twist to this random deck element, out of the 3 decks randomly chosen, you choose which decks to play when.  Once a deck is chosen, it cannot be played again for the rest of the games within that match.  Let me explain in a little greater detail below:

Its me (!Flush on Steam) vs. Anon.

For !Flush the random decks he has access to include: GG, AoW, & RG.

For Anon the random decks he/she has access to include: PK, AW, & BR.  Decks randomly chosen for each player will be listed on the forums, updated in this original post as we move along.  Which decks the player chooses when will only be known when the match begins (outside a 3rd match if it is played, as there will be only 1 deck left to choose from).

!Flush and Anon play the best 2 out of 3 to see who wins.

!Flush & Anon can choose any of the 3 decks that they randomly received.  Say for the first round !Flush chooses AoW and Anon chooses PK.

Since I'm !Flush...We'll say I win the first round :P.  Each player now plays a 2nd round.  !Flush now has GG and RG to choose from.  Anon now has AW and BR to choose from.

We will say !Flush picks RG, Anon picks AW.

If !Flush wins, it is 2-0 and he won the match, on to the next opponent.  If he loses, a 3rd round is now the deciding and final round in who moves on and who ends up in the loser bracket or eliminated if this is their 2nd loss.  Now the only option left for !Flush is GG while Anon will be using his/her last option with BR.  After !Fush and Anon play, their next games will be with a new set of 3 randomly chosen decks against their new opponents.  Unless it was someone's second loss, then they are gone for good.

Please, if you have no extra time, do not sign to participate and have only one or 2 days with one or 2 hours of availabilty.  If one or 2 people continually hold up everyone else they may be asked to concede the tournament.  Hopefully this does not happen.  Just try to be considerate of others and complete matches in a timely fashion.  If this will likely be a problem, then please refrain from joining.

Steam name: dh50
Time zone: Eastern Standard/-500 GMT

This was a blast the last couple of times Flush did this and I encourage everyone to sign up. 
What the heck.....I'll join in....school has kept me wicked busy, but some diversion will be fun.

Steam name: Kangermu
Time zone: CST (GMT -6)

Oooooooh yeah, had a feeling this was comin'.

Sign me up please!

About time someone got us back on track! =)

Hi, I'd like to sign up... I'm new to the forums but not new to the game.

Steam name: nunezilla
Timezone: Pacific Standard
Available Hours: Pretty much anytime on the weekends and after 7pm on weekdays.

EDIT: I can also be available 7am-8am most weekday mornings if that works better for some people. 
It's been a while sinse the last tourney. Sign me up !Flush.

Steam Name: Garren_Windspear
Timezone: GMT
Available Hours: Almost all weekdays from about 23.30 onwards (so about mid-afternoon in America if I have my times zones right). Also Saturdays at almost any hour.

Welcome! I'm Garren and I'll be your designated villain for the evening.

I, Garren, will knock you all down!

Let's try this one. 

Steam Name: Yxanthymir
Timezone: -3:00 GMT
Available Hours: Tuesday and Wednesday 21:00 - 23:00, Thursday 15:00 - 23:00, and Sunday All day. These are the guaranteed times. 
We are barely a couple days in and we already have half the slots filled up!  If you want to join this tournament then you better do so soon!

As I mentioned before, if you do not have the time, or only a couple hours on a couple days, DO NOT JOIN.  If something comes up before the tournament starts that will not allow you to have as much time as you thought, you can still un-register for the tournament so as not to have to concede mid-way through.  That's never fun for anyone involved!

I plan on starting the tournament as soon as the slots are filled up!  As always, I will give the start some extra time for people to get going.

Do you use another sites like challonge.com to settle the pairings or this is all done on your end and in the OP?
I like to rig things to where I win.

Lol, j/k j/k.  I use Challonge brackets and at the beginning I throw everyone's name in and then a "randomize" the pairings from the beginning.  Where you see the "Link to Brackets here soon" is where I will have the Challonge brackets links once I am able to make it.  After that people are thrown into loser's and winner's brackets depending on results.  So who plays who is 100% random and based on results of matches.

Been there. Steam was incredibly useless in getting my data back, just blaming the customer (i.e. me). But I'm a sucker I guess. I just bought the unlocks.
A quick google or search of Steam forums will come up with a save file that contains all the completed decks, that's what I did.

Oh and for the love of glop, turn cloud syncing for this game OFF.

I may have to purchase 2014 on Steam, rather than Xbox. It seems the community for events like this is pretty good and I'd love to participate.

Le sigh.


The more, the merrier!

I don't think there's one right now, but Steam is pretty good about putting games like Magic 2013 on sale from time to time. 
I agree Hakeem, Steam does seem to have more players/be more active (I wish they would just make cross-platform but oh well).  IIRC, everything was 50% off for DotP 2013 for the Holiday Sale.  So you could buy everything for about $15 if it does go on sale again.

Hopefully I can get 2 more people to join soon so we can get this tourney going soon!

According to the top post, you're looking for one more. I'll play! But only if True_Believer still can't make it. I'd rather he got a spot. Please discuss between yourselves first and let me know.

Sean, since you're here, what are the chances of players who own the game on platform A getting a discount to purchase/unlock the game on platform B in order to play against some other people? I'd gladly buy the base game twice if my unlock progress carried over to another platform, or the keys were discounted.

Just a random thought as I troll the thread.... 
Awesome Sean, I'll talk to True and see where he is at.  If he is not game then I'll throw you in there.  Thanks for the reply and help Sean!

Sean, since you're here,



I'm always here! There are just times when I don't have a response.

This is one of those times!

(I personally like the basic idea but there are no plans on WotC's part to run what you described.)

I appreciate the response, thanks. Perhaps if you put the bug in the ear of the right person, it could come to pass in the future. One never knows!
Ok I used the solution proposed to me. And now I'm good to go.
Alright!!  We finally have all of our participants signed up and ready to go!  Give me about 20-30 min from now tomake a bracket and roll up some decks and we will be going full steam ahead!!

Cool. I assume we'll use the steam friends thing to start the matches? I joined the steam group, but it's 'too many members to show'...
As an aside, this is one of those times I really wished there was a 'watch a match' option.
''Spectator Mode''.
Wonder where I've heard that before?

Mastergear_Owen's take on Magic 2014 Campaign.

Show
You know what I've got more issues. Whats up with the story in this game? The adverts said I was going to team up with Chandra and we were going to kick butt and chew bubblegum across the planes on a revenge campaign against some... guy she knew I guess? Who's Ramaz anyway? What do I get instead? I beat Chandra like 2 minutes in with a mono-green stompy thing Garruk gave me (why does he keep giving all these new planeswalkers his deck) and then I spent like 5 hours jumping from plane to plane picking up random nicknacks for her mantlepiece while she sits back back doing her nails or something. I was thrown in jail! I got hit by a Roil Storm twice! Do you know how many rats are on Ravnica, Chandra? All of them! All of the rats! All of the rats eating me!

Then we go kick her Ex's bearded-screaming-butt and what does she do to help? Nothing! She throws of the occasional fire ball and spends her time trying not to freeze to death. You should have worn pants Chandra. While we're on the subject what happened to your shoes? You had like Steelies on. Steelies are cool. Now your running around with stupid boots with like 5-inch heels? Thats not appropriate footware for Planeswalking! That's not appropriate footware for normal walking! At least Liliana is doing it for the whole 'evil is sexy' thing and can summon undead to carry her when she breaks her ankle. What are you going to do ride a Phoenix? Its made of fire! You'll fall right through! Man I should have gone Planeswalking with Liliana - yeah she'd crack my head open with a rock 5 minutes in and raise my corpse to serve her but at least we could have gone dancing!

Now with more original content and open bar!
