First Mage Wars Tournament on OCTGN
« on: April 25, 2015, 02:14:38 PM »
First OCTGN Mage Wars Tournament
On the 23th and 24th May, I will start the first Mage Wars tournament on OCTGN. Because I am hosting this event for the first time,  the number of participants is limited to 8 players.

This will be the rules:
 - The first two rounds (Quarterfinal and Semifinal) will be held on Saturday (afternoon and evening gmt+1), that will be late morning and early afternoon for the players from America. The final round starts on Sunday (evening gmt+1). Thatís again early afternoon in America.
- Encounters will be chosen randomly. Right from the first game the tournament is played according to the knock-out system, meaning who ever loses his game is out of the tournament. The player who wins three times in a row will be the winner of the tournament.
- Each player may only use the same deck during all of his his games. A copy of this deck (Format: .o8d) has to be sent to me before the first game. In the game the referees will look at each players used spells and compare with their declared decks.  If anyone uses a spell that is not in the specified deck, the player will be disqualified.
- The referee monitors compliance with the Mage Wars rules and helpful when ever there is a problem between the players concerning these rules.
- A game has no time limit, winner is the mage who survives at the end. In the event of a tie, the player who has the highest mana value on the field (Creatures + Enchantments +  Conjurations + Equipment)
- All cards available on OCTGN are allowed in this tournament, this includes promo cards. The only exception is the Ballista. It is treated as if it had the Trait Unique.

If you want to participate in the tournament, send a PM to me on the forums or via OCTGN. If interested, I can give you a quick tutorial how to install and use OCTGN.

Number of players signed in at this time: 8/8
Waiting list: 1/2

Akiro, I have never prayed to you before. No one will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that one stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Akiro... so grant me strength! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!

Why is there a tie-breaker if the game is to the death?

Because both mages can die at the same time.
