Hi all I am going to start registrations now for the next xbox tournament. Please register your user ID below. The format will be similar to the football/ soccer world cup with group stages then knockout (exact number depends on them amount of interest). I will then ask for your decks, you will need 1 for each group game and cannot play the same deck more than once in the groups.

The start date for this will be Friday 28th September

Group games are best of 3 and you can sideboard after game 1 but must use the same deck. Failure to play your match gives your opponent the win, if neither player can make it both players get a loss.You will get 3 points for a win,1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss. You m ust use a different deck for each group game.

EDIT: Amended knockout stages format

In the knockout stages there will be a change of format but that can be discussed 

Any feedback on this setup would be great.

Thanks Monk

EDIT: Players registered so far, please check I have spelled your name correctly

I'd definately be up for some kind of tournament. 9 games each match might be a bit much for me though especially if it ended up blue control vs blue control lol. Why not just best out of 3 games with a diffent deck each game?
It's only best if 9 in the knockouts so 3 round ish, the Swiss is still best of 3, i can change it if people want
That ends up being 50ish games potentially.  That seems a little excessive.

It was hard enough the first time getting people to turn in their decks AND actually play the games, I think anything that may discourage people is rather counterproductive.
Hey I'm wondering if we're going to be allowed to use the Expansion 1 decks for this, because (I think) they're supposed to come out on the 19th.
If so, I will definitely be playing in this tourney since I didn't get to play in the last one. 
Sounds good monk, though I will wait to try out the decks and see how they play before I give you a list of what I'm going to play. Had some great matches last time, can't wait to have them again!

YES!!!!!! thats why it is 1 week after the expansion, can't wait to play with the new decks
If we're allowed to use them, then I will definitely be playing. I'm excited for the expansion and I will be grinding hard to unlock everything for the decks haha. What is the latest date that we can submit our decks?
I'll play again.
We should just do double elimination, standard random bracket.

Ill join whatever the settings are though, GT is same as my name here, zeeehmtee
you know i´ll be in in this tourney  Monk^^
I'll give it a go - TRicKo xXx
I'm most definitely down for another tournament.  Can't wait to check out the expansion decks and hopefully use at least one if not more of them in this tourney.

GT: Dr Frobious 
I'll throw my hat in, I suppose.  Not sure I'll have the new stuff unlocked yet, due to Borderlands 2 coming out, but I can always roll old school decks.


GT: KrymsonHalo 
No matter the format, I'm definitely down again.

GT: x 7he7rooper 
put me down.

Is it best of best of three in the top 8 (was it top 8?), or just best of 9?

I think it may be a few too many games, but I'm willing to try it. The final will most likely have to be played across a couple of days...
My preparation for this summed in one sentence: How to counter Golgari
Only 4 days left to register

do you generally make a habit of ignoring polite messages on xbox?
I'd like to put my name down again. It'll be intersting to see how the rule changes will effect the decks people pick.

Sorry! You were playing my brother (I let him log into my gametag now and then to share XBLA games). He doesnt like to respond to people when playing as me, as per my wishes. I did see you messaged me when I got on later though. I didn't intend any disrespect man.

Hey, no worries. Totally understandable.
Okay so I'm confused at how the tourney will work, mainly because I don't follow football/ soccer at all, and I don't know the format that is used in the world cup.

Could you maybe explain how it will work? 
Also, how many decks will we have to submit? 
So there will be 3, 4 or 5 people in a group, I will know the exact number on the 24th. You will play every other person in your group, you will need to submit 1 deck for each group game. The top x people from each group will progress, again depends on how many people join the tournament.

Okay so do we play those every-other people in best of 3's?
Also, how does the deck submitting work? We can only use 1 deck per best-of-3? Or can we only submit one deck to use against everybody we play in the group?
Yes all those games are best of 3, you need to submit 3 decks and cannot use the same deck more than once in the group
I think it will be 4 per group based on current number of people
Count me in. So, 3 decks total to submit or how many?
Yeah 3 total then you can choose different decks if you get through the groups
Im interested
GT: EvilBuddha MC 
Count me in.

I want to be Cultured.
So what day do we need to submit our decks by?
27th
I. Will. Have. My. Revenge...

GT: TBx Greenguy  
Wondered when you would see it, look forward to it.
