Steam 1v1 Tournament #3

Let's start the sign-up for the next Steam Tournament! I'll give everyone 48 hours from now to sign up for the event (Tournament begins at 3:30p PT on Wednesday). For those interested in viewing the previous Steam tournament results, see this thread.

This time, we'll be playing Swiss. For the official DCI rules for the Swiss pairing system, see this PDF. The Swiss format will be fun because it allows players to play in multiple matches regardless of whether or not they win. Players will acquire points for their victories which will be used to pair them up against appropriate opponents.

When you sign up, please join the quasi-official Steam group: The Planeswalking Dead. This will make it much easier for everyone to find their next opponent. Now for the rules:



  • To participate, you must have a Steam copy of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013.

  • To sign up as a participant, respond to this thread and provide your Steam name and the three decks you’d like to use throughout the tournament. Please make sure you’ll be available to play consistently throughout the week, with at least 1 match per day in mind.

  • A match consists of up to three games. The first player with 2 victories wins the match.

  • For each match, a participant must choose (and stick with) one of their three decks. No switching between games.

  • Deck modification is allowed between games.

  • At the end of each game, take a screenshot which shows the victor. This will help verify the win in case of disputes.

  • At the end of each match, both players should report the outcome in this thread.





Players are responsible for finding their own opponents. If a match goes unplayed for over 24 hours (EDIT: Make that 48 hours), it will be considered a tie. This is to keep the tournament going and avoid any blame over availability conflicts. That said, please be aware when signing up that many players seem to be in the GMT-7:00 and GMT-4:00 time range, and those in other time zones may have difficulty working out a play time depending on their opponent.


Spread the word, have fun, and good luck!

Also who will be responsable for keeping track of scores? I assume us but I ask because I am not following these Swiss rules at all...

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

I, Garren, will knock you all down!

The bracket will pretty much take care of everything. Just report back here with the win-loss report and you'll be paired up with another opponent on the bracket as soon as I update it.

Let me just get this right: Do I have to play all 3 decks I chose? And in the order I chose them? Also, you didn't mean between rounds in point 5 right? This meaning, no sideboarding?
Great, thanks Sean for doing this.

Steam handle: Drogo

Decks: Goblin Gangland, Crosswinds,  Yeva's deck.
@Cellophane: Oops. Fixed that bulletpoint. Sideboarding IS allowed.

You don't have to play all three decks. You just have to select one of them per match. You could select the same deck every match if you'd like. The three deck idea is simply there to introduce a small element of strategy for players who could potentially use unfavorable decks against an opponent (while still allowing for flexibility if you decide a deck isn't working for you).

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

31 so far, might need a losers bracket system



With a Swiss pairing system everyone will be playing multiple matches regardless of how well they play, so a losers bracket shouldn't be needed.

I think one of the best things about the Swiss system is there's always more room ... and for any number of players from 33-64 (which i think we've already hit?), it's the exact same number of games, so not even a longer tournament.  A bit more typing for Sean maybe.
