***** SECOND ROUND POSTINGS *****
This is an un-official tournament, just for fun.
The rules are as follows:
8, players, single-elimination.
Each round each player will be paired with one other player, with randomly selected decks to duel best of 5 games.
New decks will be included.
Eack round will start Saturday night at midnight, and players will have 1 week to play, and post to this thread, or no points will be scored.
The tournament will go 3 rounds. Each win is worth 1 pt.
Most points after 3 rounds wins the tournament, ie. the player who is undefeated. (The points help every one to determine who is 2nd, 3rd, etc.)
Winners of each round will play each other until one is victorious. Losers of each round will like-wise go on to play each other.
(3pts) NoobgamerisNoob: SS,CM,AS,OD,CL
(3pts) Andre1001: CM,MS,PK,DP,ED
(5pts) Crysus: MS,CW,CL,CM,BoF
(6pts) Soritami: CM,GM,BoF,PK,SS (WON)
(2pts) DroneOn: CM,CW,DP,ED,AS
(2pts) Loganpl: AS,PI,GG,OD,CM
(1pts) Aaron: bye
So unless At-least 4 of you object, I'm gonna auto include 1 of the new decks. Here's how ! am going to do it. Roll 1: 1 six sided die, with a guild assigned to each number 1 through 5. (re-roll 6)
Roll 2-5: roll 1 20 sided die, with each deck (including new ones) assigned to numbers 1-15. re-roll 16-20
Any duplicates will also be re-rolled so nobody playes 1 deck more than once per round.
If this goes well, than we can go on to start playing with 16 players.
There are 2 tournies still going, why do we need a third 1?
The league is just about over, and the other tourney has been abandoned. Count me in for this one. PSN antkour
Count me in if we are allowed to use the new decks.
Im in of course. In my opinion will be better if we have 8 players and some others players in backup.
Logan, Cyrus, noob, antkour, me, and I'm assuming zerodrone so far. That makes six. Yeah, I think your right Logan, lets get 8 to work before we start one with 16.
I'm in. I usually never join these things, but I wanna try it out. User: LegacyRO3
Yep, I'm in. Double elimination this time, right?
As a suggestion, just to make things a little more interesting, how about having one deck guaranteed to be from the Expansion?
As in, assign each deck to 1-15, with the Expansions being 1-5. Pick a random from 1-5 first, then pick four from 1-15 (discarding multiples of the same deck)?
Good idea with having one deck guaranteed to be from the Expansion.
What is double elimination?
Looks like we have 8.. I have to wait a bit and see if anyone else who PLAYED in the last one wants in, as I promised them first pick.. I will massage them tonight. After fnm and give them till tomorrow night. First round postings go up tomorrow night, let me know if you guys/gals like the suggestion to auto include 1 new deck each round..
Killa never accepted my invites but was online. If you are full that's fine, but if you have room for me I will gladly and hopefully play this time.
im in this should be fun. 8 souns like a good number because when its 16 to many people randomly drop out. if you don't have at least 20-30 hours free a week you shouldn't enter tournaments just my opinion. i myself work and can get about 30 free time.
I posted the first round match-ups.
When evryone has played, and posted their results we can start round two.
My psn handle is aaronjoncheney, let me know when you'll be available Crysis.
Logan and I did our matches earlier today.
First one was Pack Instinct (me) vs Ancient Wilds (him) and he won, second was Aura Servants vs Grinning Malice and I won, third was a Mindstorms mirror match which I won as well. #4 was Sepulchral Strength against Collective Might, and Logan won. These 4 games were all very close, but on the fifth it was me with Goblin Gangland and him with Dream Puppets, I had a fantastic hand and went first so it was over pretty fast.
So in short, I won 3-2. It was great fun, looking forward to the next round.
There are 2 people on stand by right now. If you want I can put you on stand. By too, and if I get 8, then then we'll try 16 player next tournament. We've hadproblems organizing 16 due to people not going it serious and not actually playing their matches. The next tournament should start in about two weeks. Put up a post if you want to bee added to stand by, and I'll save you a spot.
Add me to stand by, I would be happy to play whenever I can. If you do 16 people tourny, why not make it a 2HG? 1v1 might take like a month lol. Im on most of the nights add me.
A 2 headed giant tournament sounds amazing! Getting 4 people to together to play at the same time does not. I think the earlier thread discussion about 2/3 hours free time vs 20/30 he's free time says it all.
DroneOn: I think your discussion with Noob worked it's self out, and I'm sorry I didn't intervene, but It's tricky, and my leadership skills aren't the greatest. I don't want to reward haters, as I've been the target of tons of hatemail my-self. It goes without saying that if anyone is rude to anyone during the tournament they will be disqualified. There is really never an excuse to be rude, especially in a game designed around having fun and socializing. I think this thread should be Democratic, and all decisions should be what the majority agrees on. Noob seems remorseful, and has promised to play nice, so I would set to give him another chance. I hope this doesn't spoil this for you as I really like having you in the tournament, and hope you'll stay.
Crysus, ill be online tonight after 8 pm mountain time, until late.
Speedy, and legacy, if you want to play each other, ill roll up decks for you, and you can be included in first round posting if people drop out. Post if your interested.
If someone starts a 2gh league I'm in.. I suppose every one would have to post their theoretical availability to look for a common time every one cloud get together. All members would have to corelare some free time with all other members, and be serious about the league to pull it off. Also you would probably need 16 people to have a proper pod. Seems tough, but given how awesome it would be, its not impossible.
I'd say, for the sake of "the community", that all past transgressions should be wiped. If somebody acts the fool during an actual tournament though (or does nonsense like no-showing), then let the ostracizing commence.
Me and aaronjoncheney had are match today. im i a rush so ill be quick
first game was me pack instant vs him ancient wilds i drew nothing but land for the first five turn but manage to win with a primal bellow on one of my unblocked creatures i got in for 19 damage.
next game was me born of flames vs him ss. I burn him to death lol. sorry short on time
next game was me OD vs him mindstorm. he won i took a bad hand and got mana flooded manage to get an obliterator out he got control of it two turns later timewarped and got the win.
last game was me minstorm vs him crosswinds. He got mane stuck i took control and won.
I won 3-1 I will try and give more details later. aaronjoncheney was a great opponent and i enjoyed playing him i wish the best. Now on to round 2.
I can be online anytime from 7pm to 11pm EST if anyone wants to team up for 2HG, I got lots of decks unlocked and set up for support.
My PSN is squalltheonly.
Btw how do i change my display name? I dont't want to be random guest lol
I'm down for 2HG, I have a couple people I partner with and can probably get one of them to stop playing Borderlands 2 long enough to do a tournament.
Okay, great, and Aaron said he was in too, so i'm just gonna put a few names right here that I know are in so far.
Okay, anybody else like to join this fun fest? We'll make it a league if we can get 8 teams and everybody is cool with that. I find it's better than elimination in the long run, and we all get to have a good time, win or lose. Also, I would like to hear any ideas on deck choices, because I like the idea of random decks, but some of us have combos we like to play too. Thinking four random and one of your choice for each player, how you and your partner play them is your choice entirely, and no sideboarding in any given match, but feel free before or after. To be frank, I wouldn't mind disquallifying mill either, but that is my own personal hatred there, so just disregard that...
im in now just need to find a partner any takers
Meh, I can't seem to find any option to change my display name and I am logged in with my own password/username. Oh well I will try it from my PC and not my iphone lol
I think people could use any deck but the 2 mono blue decks should be prohibited. Reason being that a good beginning hand on the mill deck will can net you a win by turn 5, and if paired with crosswinds it would be too painful.
Crosswinds paired with any deck is a guaranteed win 80% of the time IMO.
yeah im with the random guest we definitely should bane mill because its no fun to play against. crosswind should be allowed its just really anoying when paired with mill. come to think of it we should only use the new decks it would be much more fun.
Im up for 2HG championship I have a partner already, just gotta talk with him if he's interested in tourney.
I'm not so sure about eliminating a deck entirely. I think the random deck generation solves all that, but perhaps we could draft decks. I'm up to play a bit of 2HG with any of you who haven't partnered with someone yet to see if we click as a team.
Crycus stomped me something good last night, none of my decks were popping.. mana/top draw problems... so it goes.
Has any one heard from andre since this thing started?
I sent a friend request o Andre a couple days ago and he hasn't yet accepted.
There are a lot of ways to get rid of Panoptic Mirror, especially in 2HG when you have two decks to deal with it. I don't think Crosswinds is a problem in 2HG.
I'm OK with banning mill just because it's no fun, but what about the non-mill Dream Puppets build? That's how I run DP, the only mill cards I have in are Hedron Crab, Thought Scour, and Mind Sculpt (and Sword of Body and Mind, of course). I don't think it's unfun to play against, but I wouldn't run it by choice in 2HG anyway.
Okay, getting some good heat now, I like this. Okay, let's update the list and sort out a few points. also, i'll make an actual thread for this later, so I don't ruin this tourney one.
I was mostly joking about the removal of mill, but this is gonna be a democracy, so i'd like to hear your votes on the matter. To choose decks, just so you know, i'll be using playing cards to randomize. Ace-king is thirteen, plus joker is fourteen, and I rather like the idea of everybody choosing one deck to run anyway, so that should be perfect. Everybody will post their deck, which must be kept for the whole league, and then i'll shuffle and draw four cards for each player, per round.
Okay, anymore takers? Good luck finding your partners all.
Why yes Karstien I would like to participate... In reality it seems fun. Who knows we might get the best combo ever, Lill/mill. I'm kinda thinking this will be a good way for us to test our combo's.
I just played with Zerodrone and i won 3-2
-1st match N00b's Collective Might(L) vs Zerodrones's Aura Servant(W):
I began with 3 forests in my hand so i was kinda screwed, she had a super creature with tons of auras but i killed him with a swords to plowshares this wasn't enough coz she played good creatures with auras so i was in a bad shape.
-2nd match N00b's Sepulcral Strenght(W) vs Zerodrone's Sepulcral Strenght(L):
This was the best match of the night, i was screwed with 3 lands and she had like 6-7 so she dropped bombs like Spiritmonger x2 and a Sewer Nemesis
but i had tons of removal and when i got lands i just killed her with my 2nd Spiritmonger with a rancor .
-3rd match N00b's Mindstorm(W) vs Zerodrone's Ancient Wilds(L):
I started the match with a Razorfin Hunter so it was a very good start, i had 2 wee dragonauts so she couldn't do anything.
-4th match N00b's Goglin Gangland(L) vs Zerodrone's Collective Might(W):
I had very bad hand with 5 lands and 2 goblins so she just killed me with easy with her hero of bladehold .
-5th match N00b's Cross Winds(W) vs Zerodrone's Mindstorms(W):
She just quitted after i dropped my 7th land coz she began the match with just 5 cards and only 1 of them was a land so she was landscrewed pretty bad.
Well i won 3-2.
The last match I was playing Mindstorms, not Collective Might.
Way too much luck on both sides for my taste, I had 2xGo For the Throat in hand in the second match so I could have handled any creature except Spiritmonger, and had Ascetism out, but just wasn't drawing anything.
I had to mulligan down to 5 cards to even have a single land in the last match, and then drew exactly 1 land in 7 turns.
This is why I was hoping it would be double elimination this tournament, it's too easy to have one bit of bad luck ruin everything.
Also you say that every match you lost was because you had a bad hand, which makes it sound like I was just lucky, but I thought my Collective Might win was pretty good, it wasn't just Hero of Bladehold that won me that match.
No worries, the mirror match was pretty good at least, I had the chance to use both my Go For the Throat to take out that Spiritmonger, but stupidly I was thinking "I can't use two cards to take out one", but I ended up needing to.
I could have Maelstrom Pulse'd that Rancor, too, I guess. Hindsight is 20/20 and all that!
ok, great! once Andre, and Antkour play each-other, and post we can move on to the next round.
Double elimination only works with 16 people, as you need to have a "loosers bracket" that the players go back and forth between, and typically it's used in a tournament with more than 3 rounds. If we ever play with 12, or 16 people we can easily adopt it. Also, its more complicated, and I didn't want to leave the tournament open to speculation and argument about the results.
Are we still doing this or what its been a week.
Andre/ antrok have until midnight on Friday to post, or they get 0 Pts. In that scenario, a 3/2 winner will get paired down.
That's midnight mountain time. And its antkor, sorryw
hey! sorry for the delay, but we just haven't been able to log in at the same time since wednesday,
and it hasn't been a week cyrus, we started this saturday night
Eack round will start Saturday night at midnight, and players will have 1 week to play, and post to this thread, or no points will be scored.
So according to the official rules we still have today and tomorrow to post our results, I'm on and I'll be on till 10 pm CDT, so hopefully we'll play today and there will be no problem
hey Andre1001 sorry for calling you out but we need to know whats going with your games. Like you said you'll haven't been able to log in at the same time since Wednesday and you gave the forum no update. when everyone else has finish there games. plus from what you wrote you and your opponent still dont have a set time to play your game and your on a 24 hour clock. I hope you play your games before then but in the future it would be nice if you took 3 minutes out your very busy day and let the forums know whats going on with you.
I have to drop out. My tv went out on me. Sorry all and good luck
And then there was 7. Thank for letting us know Ankour, andre, I'm giving you 3 pts. We have. A spot open. I'll post round 2 tonight. Hopefully someone will want to join.... any takers??
4 people should be left me, Andre1001, Soritami and NoobgamerisNoob unless i got something wrong how is it 7 ?
Andre advances to round 2 without even having to win a single match? That doesn't seem fair, seeing as there are those of us who won games but are locked out of round 2?
your rite drone andre should probably be eliminated. But we cant blame him for something he cant control. Anyways its not my call.
Typically, in a bye situation the person with the bye gets a win. That's how they run it at sanctioned paper magic tournaments. The second and third round byes always go to the player with the fewest pts. so as the pts. can't win him the tournament. This is a democracy, though, so what ever the group as a whole agrees with. Since we are doing a points system, if someone plays twice in a round, then they get double points. Yes there are only four left in the winners bracket, but I was still gonna pair the loosers every round to determine 3-8th place, and its more fun/interactive. Let me know what you think, I just placed the pairings, but I can change them however people want.
It seems like the 7 we have are serioius and able to get together and play, so how about making this a league?
Anyone wanna fill Ankour's shoes? We have one open spot
are we still playing this its been a week ready to start round 2.
Alright, great to see it's round 2 at last. I'll be playing Crysus soon.
ohh wow did not see that. Soratami my psn is crysus89 i think i have u as a friend already. let me know when u want to play.
Well me and Crysus just finished our games.
First game was Peace Keepers (me) vs Collective Might (him). I threw in a bunch of weenies and played 2 Honor of the Pure s on turn 4, and it was over pretty fast.
Second game was Grinning Malice vs Celestial Light. Crysus had lifelinkers and a couple of lions in play early. I had no removal and not enough lands to play any of my big creatures so it was over pretty fast as well.
Third game was Born of Flame vs Crosswinds. It was pretty straighforward, I burned away and finished things up with an Inferno Titan .
Fourth game was Sepulchral Strength vs Born of Flame. This one was more drawn out, and I ended up losing to Hostility 's tokens.
Fifth game was Collective Might vs Mindstorms. It was also pretty long, the only tokens I managed to put in play in ealy game all got burnt, but I had several of the deck's strong creatures, like the Liege, the Ant Queen, the indestructiblity rhyno, etc and two Beastmaster Ascention s in play. It took a while to activate them but eventually my creatures were 14/14 and 15/15 and there wasn't much Crysus could do about that.
So all in all I won 3-2. Great games.
So, i'm gonna kill this tourney on Saturday, I think it's dead anyways... If there's anyone still interested in a duel tournament/league then enter in psn tourney3 which I will put up in a few days... Thanks for playin guys.
Oh, and Soritami: I crown thee champion.. You have slayed the beast, and are once again master of the universe.
I'll be starting a new 2HG tournament today, so keep tuned. Hopefully this time things will go a bit smoother *crosses fingers*
Nobody has posted, and Andre isn't responding. I assume people lost interest when Antkour dropped... I can keep it going, but I need some kind of response from Zerodrone, and Andre
to me this tournament been over for a long time to many people not playing there game say they don't have a t.v yet inter other tournaments just saying.
this tourtament was more like a test. we should make a new one with only the people who played all of there games and N00BGamerIsN00b since i don't believe it was his fault for not being able to play his game. Soratami should be the winner by default because he has the most points unless noob an Soratami can play there match in the next couple of days. The reason aaronjoncheney is ending it is because hes trying to his best to run this tournament and getting no updates as to whats going on and i fully support his decision. noob your opponent has yet to play one game in this tournament so i believe the chances are low that you'll will get your game done before the deadline and i believe most people in this tournament want it to be over with or just not that in to it.
