I am going to officially start the tournamnet this Friday January 25th! Keep in mind the bracket is not set to go yet, so you will not know who your opponent will be. If anyone still wants to sign up, feel free to reply here, PM me, or post on the Arcane Duels section of Discord. Good luck everyone!

Just wanted to post the link to Challonge and Discord below!

    Previous wording - If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and discarded, and you have lost the action.
    New wording -If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and obliterated, and you have lost the action.
    Everything else remains unchanged about the step

Rules
If a player gets disconnected and dropped during a tournament match it will be considered a loss for that player

A judge makes the final call on a rule. Any argumentative discussion that takes an excessive amount of time will receive a warning then if it continues that player will be disqualified.

The Upkeep and Planning phases will be timed. You are allowed 5 minutes (300 seconds) at the start of the planning phase using the in game timer. Judges will regulate the timer - If there is no judge you can agree to not time the match

During both the first and last quick cast and the main action phase - Players will be limited to 1 minute to decide each action. Executing an action will not be timed. Judges will regulate the timer - If there is no judge you can agree to not time the match.

If you receive a Bye it will be considered a win.

There will be no spellbook submissions.

Competitors will be randomized at the beginning of the tournament to determine which group they are in. You will not know who your opponent will be until the tournament officially begins!

So I have been contacted by a few people from the tournament. Unsurprisingly a lot of people are rusty and busy! That being said I would like to wrap up this tournament over the next few weeks. I did have a few people also contacted me wanting to join the fight! So I figured we would open it up to the anyone that wants to join. We'll do a single elimination starting Friday, January 4th. Also any mages can be used! All other rules on the front page is still standing. Good luck! Please PM me or respond to this thread to sign up.

Also I realize the discord link expired. I posted a link that will never expire, so feel free to join up and hang out with the community!

Update!

Just wanted to give a shout out to anyone that was interested in this tournament. I know everyone got a bit busy, for various reasons we have had some players drop. But I have been contacted by a few players that want to see this tournament through!

By now a lot of the MW players have gone over to Discord. In general we've seen less traffic here because of the discussions being transferred there. If anyone is interested please follow the link below if you wanted to join the discord. I'll be posting this in the discord just to double check on everyone's status.

So any of the players that are looking to play out the rest of the tournament. Please check in here and reply to this post! I am hoping we can finish this over the holiday season and possibly go a week or two into January. With this kind of break, I believe it is truly anyone's game. Let's give this until the 26th and start the dropping of players.

I look forward to finishing this tournament, and seeing some awesome games.

Rules Discussion / Re: force pull through Mind's eye
« on: November 29, 2018, 11:32:14 AM »
In general I prefer to play things by RAW when it comes to games. This discussion is really unique because it comes from a perspective of players that know "how the sausage gets made." with this set. You will see in some tournaments RAW get changed to the perspective of puddn, only because it was on the docket to get changed in an errata, but has not completed yet. If you are not sure which perspective to try it out as, I would suggest just playing as RAW to avoid explanation. But I would suggest trying it out with force pulling towards the source, just to see if you like it more or not. It does change the ability to have more uses, such as pulling the Forcemaster herself to allow a full Galvitar hit.
