Claus..., Round Six...

Old stuff
Uncon is around the corner folks and your forum guide (me) is hosting two events! The event that will concern most of you folks here is the T2 tournament. Currently I am looking for people to participate in this event.

We will be holding this over something we will call the forbidden program (for more details contact my AIM or MWS which are in a later post). If you do not have it, and can get it, please do. It makes my life easier as I don't have to be the 3rd party for the match. When you've been informed of your opponent, it is YOUR responsibility to contact him/her and arrange a time to complete your match. You have 48 hours to complete your match. If you cannot find a time that you are both available within this time limit, PM ME IMMEDIATELY.

Matches will be best 2 out of 3. Once the match has be decided, it is the winner’s responsibility to PM me with the results and proof of victory OR both players must PM me with the same results. Results should include the individual games won and lost by you. In case of a dispute, I suggest getting a proof of victory, (I’d personally use a screenshot of the end results). If there is insufficient evidence to rule in a player’s favor, the match will be redone (this must be done within the 48 hour time limit given at the beginning of the round OR within 12 hours (whichever is longer).

Pairing will be done after the given 48 hours (usually within the hour after). However, I am a college student who is struggling with his major. This may affect you as I may be cramming or with a tutor. I will try to be as prompt as possible. I suggest subscribing to the thread or using some other means to check in on it when possible.

If you have a problem with rulings, put your match on hold and go to the rules Q&A forum to ask your question. Any other questions should be PMed to me (though I may not get to it right away).

There are currently 2^x spots available. This caps off at 64 (though I doubt I’ll get anywhere close). What does this mean? It means that the first two are in, then the first 4, then the first 8, then first 16, first 32, first 64. If we get close to one of those numbers, I will consider buys or I may consider buys anyway.

While you can switch your deck through the beginning of the tournament in between matches, be advised that if you make it into the top 8, you will be required to PM your deck list that you will play for the rest of the tournament. I will be publishing the T8 deck and player results. Be aware that currently we are doing single or double elimination and that the tournament will probably begin October 6th.

Currently there is no set prize. I can not specify what you will get if you get something. On a closing note, good luck and have fun. Don’t die either. ;)




For those who can't read that (I sure as hell can't)

Round 6 Matchups:

Caldera42 vs Cage of Pancakes
Deathcow38 vs Every_Day
Beanman1000 vs Lightning_Link7

Tagonte vs Deathcow38

Round 6+ Matchups:

Once you have made the top 8, and will have to submit your decklist that you will be using for the rest of the tournament.

If I messed up, tell me, I am only human!

-Check to see what your opponent's preferred choice of place for the match is. If you can't agree, you'll need to PM me to fit in a match around a judge's schedule.
-The double-elim brackets can be tricky to understand. here's the brief run down. You will procede along the right side until you lose one match. You then get bumped to the left side upon your loss. You will continue along the left side until you lose again, then you're out for good. If you manage to make it all the way to the left side, you're now in the finals, against the person who made it nearly all the way to the right. This match is a little strange. As you've lost a match, and they have not, you will play best of 3 matches (that's matches, not games as you ALWAYS play best of 3 games) but with the yourself being down one match. Why? You've lost a match already, the other guy hasn't, and we have to be fair to him having 2 chances before getting knocked out.

PM me with any questions.

Do you have a copy of the DCI Tournament Reporter software? That would be very useful to pair this, unless you're willing to do this by hand.

Unfortunantly no...

I do have Tio tourny organizer though (for SSBB) I can make the brackets that way.

There are arguments for both (most pro-brawl is debunked by MK)

Could you elaborate on your question?

What is stopping someone from stacking their deck?
Count me in!
Umm, so I don't really frequent these forums any more, but I do blog for my website Greatplay.net.
I'm in, sounds good. I assume the tournament would be post-rotation? (I want to make sure so I have another reason to get to playtesting to counteract my laziness).

well, I'm hoping most people will use an alternate method to play their game. I can't say what to use but...

Edit: it is post rotation.

*jumps on bandwagon* Yup, sign me up.
Ah, crud, could you please inform me of all the dates that this will occur, where and when, how you duel people (over chat I would suppose), how to prevent cheating, and the like? I'd just like to have all the information before I truly commit.

This.

Allons-y!

Okay first the approximate dates:
Round 1:10/6 at around 3:00 PM to 10/8 at the same time
Round 2:10/8 at around 4:00 PM to 10/10 at the same time
Round 3:10/10 at around 5:00 PM to around 10/12 at the same time

repeat until done. (Remember that you only have to play 1 match over a round)

Where: Officially we'll do it over chat. Unofficially, contact me on AIM or MSN (Atmapalazzo or [email]Atmapalazzo@live.com[/email]) right now so I can explain it.

How to prevent cheating: I'm still working on that.

If you want to prevent cheating, you most certainly do not use the chat client. The most reliable method to run this tournament is the one we can't exactly mention on these boards (or via MODO, but I doubt many people have the cards).

Exactly. A tournament like this will not work unless the forbidden program is used.
do we just shuffle up our deck at home and then say what cards we're playing?

That's essentially how it would work if we used the chat client. The issues with this are rather obvious.

Yea, I think we'll have to use the means forbidden (but that excludes mac users, any ideas of what to do?)

Well you could require that you must be a human being to enter, everyone knows mac users aren't human beings.

>_>
Argh! Scheaduled around a lot of my class times. Good luck to the competitors.

Everyone go download LackeyCCG. It works on both, and linux soon.
Dosen't the forbidden program have logs? The winner must copy paste the log and send it to Atma via pm.

That may work actually... If everyone is up to it

Edit: Yes Knighty, it does.

I for one would appreciate it. I only have a mac.

Me too, though I hate inconveniencing those who have experience and are used to MWS.
