Commander 1.03 on Gatherling.com
Commander 1.03 is a FREE Commander League on Gatherling.com. It is open to all, playing Commander with the built-in Commander filter. Newcomers are always welcome.  Matches will be best 2 out of 3, using the Commander Duel play structure with a 60 minute timer. Please select to allow watchers. To find a match please type "/join Commander" at any text box in MTGO.


Registration is currently open.  Gatherling Commander Event 1.02 will start Saturday, June 2nd, 2012.  Each Gatherling Commander Event will last two weeks; the tournaments will always start and end on every other Saturday.


REGISTRATION:
Registration is currently open. To register go to www.Gatherling.com --> Gatherling and log in (or register), go to your Player CP, and in the middle of the left column click the reg link! A form to enter your deck list will then come up.  Enter your deck list. Do not play any matches until you enter your deck list. If you do not enter a deck list, you will be disqualified and dropped from the tournament.  This is enforced in order to facilitate learning and strategy development from the current meta-game, as well as aid our sponsors in marketing for the event.

NOTE - Late registrations are always welcome but realize that the later you start, the harder it will be to get your matches in, as players will become less active after they get some matches completed. To reg late just leave a "reg" message right here in this thread. You do not have to play all the matches. Feel free to play however many you like.

COMMUNICATING:
Once the event starts, players will have until one minute before the next event's start time to face each other player in one match apiece. Upon completion of each match, place the results in this thread here to get credit. Only the winning player needs to report the result.  To find a match type "/join Commander" at any text box in MTGO.

DECK CONSTRUCTION
Unless it is a special or alt event, Gatherling Commander uses the built-in Commander duel filter with no changes. If MTGO says your deck is legal, then it's legal for this league.

Commander is SINGLETON! Make a 100 card deck (99 cards plus your one Commander) with no more than 1 English copy of any given card (except basic lands).

PRIZES
Top 4: The top 8 players receive tickets as follows. 1st 4 tickets, 2nd 2 tickets, 3rd and 4th 1 tickets. NOTE: Gatherling Commander is currently supported only by Gatherling.com, clan Pauper Krew, and player donations. So if you would like to sponsor this event, or any other event on Gatherling.com just message Dabil on MTGO. We can offer banner adds and links to your website in exchange for your support. If you would like to make a donation, simply leave a message for Dabil and/or leave a message in the results thread of what you are donating so that the players may see it.

Donations for Top 4 and door prize are always appreciated, as is contributing to larger prize pools for Season Championships. Please PM Dabil if you have something you wish to contribute.

If you would like to help host Gatherling Commander, also Message Dabil. I could always use someone to help enter the matches, and support the event.

EVENT STRUCTURE

There will be one round of League play in which each participant is allowed to play each other player once.  The time frame is two weeks.  This will hopefully introduce a much more casual gaming environment, one where players can easily find another match without waiting for the host to process results. 

After two weeks, the top 4 scores as computed in Gatherling will be awarded medals with the top player winning a Trophy which will permanently be displayed on your player profile. The tournament will end regardless of whether people have completed all of their matchups.    This is due to time constraints and to reward those who play often.  Note that a person who has won half of 20 matches will have more points than one who has won 100% of nine matches. Gatherling awards 3 points for a win and -1 points for a loss.

RULES
•    The registered players will be listed here in this thread once the event starts since you cannot see the other players decks or registrations until the tournament ends. The order of matches will be up to each individual and availability of opponents.  Feel free to use this forum or MTGO PM system to set up a date/time with any given opponent.

•    Remember that each Gatherling Commander Event will last exactly two weeks.  No more, no less.  Get those matches in!  This tournament operates by highest total points, NOT necessarily the highest win percentage!  You will receive 3 points for a win and -1 points for each loss.

•    Tables must be made using the Commander Challenge filter, "best 2 out of 3", Watchable, and labeled "Gatherling.com Commander". And remember, the more we publicize these matches, the more participation we will get and the easier it will be to draw sponsors. So feel free to invite anyone who likes playing Commander!

•    The deck used for your first match must be used for the entire tournament. Modifications can result in disqualification and banning.

•    After each match, results must be reported in this thread in the event forum like "vs Dabil W2-1" or "vs Dabil L0-2" (make sure you list your opponent!).  If you choose to let your opponent post for the two of you, it is your responsibility to check posts for accuracy.  Mistakes caught after the end of the tournament will be ignored.  Also, anyone dropping from the tournament must report "drop" in the results thread as well.  I know it usually won't matter because of the point system, but it's good to stay in the habit for the sake of other tournaments. And it lets other players know you are not available for matches anymore. (especially late players who may have a hard time getting in their matches).

•    Bad sportsmanship or other rules violations may result in match loss, disqualification, suspension, or banning. Offense and punishment will be decided at the host's discretion.

Season Points and Standings

Players will be awarded the following points for event attendance and performance:
•    1st place: 10 points
•    2nd place: 7 points
•    Top 4: 4 points
•    Top 8: 2 points
•    Match Win: 3 Points
•    Loss -1 point

Top 15 finishers for the season will be invited to the season championship event. The cutoff is show with a double line in the season points standings. Additionally, the Last Chance Qualifier held the week before Championships will award a Champs invitation to anyone in the top 4 not already invited.

reg ImBrianFellows ;)
Okay I have now registered sarpadian_emperor and ImBrianFellows for this event. The next step for both of you is to go to www.gatherling.com, create a new account (You MUST use your MTGO ID since that is what we reg for the events). Once you reg go to your player cp and enter your deck list's. The easiest way to enter your deck list is to save your deck as a Text deck from the MTGO client. Then open it in a text editor and copy and paste the deck over to the Gatherling.com deck submission form.

Once you do this you may begin playing matches. Have fun and feel free to invite your friends!
