evilweevil's ultimate standard league

Last post

With the advent of innistrad I'm going to inact my new standard league, which I have been waiting to do.  Without further ado:

[sblock  The Basic Structure]The league is modeled partially off of my league a while back that got mysteriously deleted and will involve swiss play in groups, followed by single elimination rounds.  I am going to take 15 applicants (16 people including myself) and everyone will be randomly distributed into 4 groups of 4.  From there you will play everyone else in your group twice (so a total of 6 matches) and after those 6 rounds the top two players from each group will advance into the top 8.  The seedings from the top 8 will be based on your placing in your group and on overall record.[/sblock]

[sblock  Logistics; PLEASE READ]
- signups close at 12 AM next sunday night (oct 2nd), eastern standard time.
- matches in the swiss rounds will be determined by best two out of three games and the top 8 will use best three out of five.
- you will have a week to complete each match.
- if a player fails to make any attempt to contact his opponent or post to the thread in any given gameweek he/she will be replaced immediately for the next week by someone from the signup sheet.  The new player will be replaced in with the same record, but with one additional loss instead of a win.
- if both players communicate, but cannot schedule a time to play they will each be given a draw.
- all games will be carried out by playing on C or by using Machine Washable Slippers.  I encourage all players to have both to make things run smoother.
- you may change your deck in between swiss rounds, however you must submit a security code before the top 8 and use the same deck throughout.
- if a new set is released during the tournament that set is legal the second the full spoiler is released, unless it's during the top 8.
- if a player cannot use one of the two options for various reasons the other player is expected to comply and use the working option.  If they cannot make this work I will make a decision on a case by case basis.
- if two players tie for second in the swiss rounds, meaning one would make the top 8 and the other wouldn't a variety of steps will be taken.  First I will look at the players head-to-head record.  If one of them has a better head-to-head then that player will qualify.  If they have the same record they will play a best of five playoff match.
- if I get enough applicants I will look into making this a tournament of 4 groups of 5.[/sblock]

When it fills or after signups close (which is in the logistics section).
This better not die or else I'll shank you

I won't let it die, but I can't promise that people won't fail to get their matches done.  I can only hope that people want to play in an awesome tourney for a new format...
Ill play,  Atma wants me to help him brew right now anyway. So this is a good excuse to play.

Not that many more days to sign up.  Not sure why no one wants to play in an awesome tourney for a brand new format...Regardless, I'll start on time even if we don't have enough people.

I'll /IN this.
I'm in.

Am I required to pilot the same list in every match? 

I think Draft is the best format in Magic.

I strive to be critical, rational and openminded.

OP says you can change inbetween rounds.

No.  Please read the full OP before you ask next time (not that it's difficult for me, but you might get a faster answer).  If/when you advance to the knockout rounds you must use the same list for all of the knockout rounds.
I did read the logistics, I guess I skipped over that part. Thanks for the swift answer. Still interested.

Disregard my previous statement of not playing. I'm in after reading that its only once a week.

Great.  Now we have 12, so we can at the least do 3 groups of 4.  Hopefully we can fill the remaining spots though.
Only a day and a half of signups left.
Last day for signups!
Signups are closed!  I will be generating the groups shortly and then the round 1 pairings.  Because we only got 12 people I will make 3 groups of 4.  The top 2 from each group will advance into a top 6.  In the first round of the top 6 the 2 players with the highest overall records will receive byes (this includes game records if it comes down to that as a tiebreak).
Group A
1. gamemaniac2
2. Theiz
3. halo_lover
4. lightning_link7

Group B
1. zpikduM
2. bughferd
3. chow_man
4. CageofPanacakes

Group C
1. catowner
2. lightninghelixed
3. evilweevil666
4. tame_lion

Round 1 Pairings
Group A:
lightning_link7 vs Halo_lover
Theiz vs Gamemaniac2

Group B:
zpikduM vs CageofPanacakes
chow_man vs bughferd

Group C:
catowner vs tame_lion
evilweevil666 vs lightninghelixed

You have a week to complete this round!
Hopefully everyone is working on scheduling a time to play.  I have yet to hear back from lightninghelixed.
zpikduM, where are ya! Its time!

I have a game up on Mindwhip Slivers.

EDIT: Had the game up for an hour.

LL7, PM me when you want to and can play.

I specified that you must pm your opponent, not just post in thread.  Halo, I expect for you to do this.  In other news, I win round 1 2-0 over lightninghelixed.
You guys only have a couple more days and I'm the only one done yet.  I'd like to hopefully hear some status updates so I can determine who is inactive.
I admit that I totally forgot about this. Thiez hasn't sent me any requests or anything.
Me and Chow are playing this weekend.

Ok, see if you two can play today or tomorrow.  I'll message him on facebook or something and see if I can get him to put an effort in.  But if you pm him or something that would be great.

I sent him a PM when I posted that. What somewhat alarmed me is that he never posted anything on the boards after he /in'd this.
Yeah, I know him personally and he's been going through a rough time.  If he doesn't respond I'll give you the match win, but I'm gonna try to contact him.
I've already sent COP a PM. No response back.
