ADMW Winter Special - OCTGN Tournament
« on: November 06, 2016, 11:40:22 AM »
    ADMW Winter Special

    Standards
    • The tournament will be played in two stages. The first stage will be a round robin. There will be 16 total players separated into 4 groups. The top two players in each group will advance to the second stage. Each player must play at least 1 game every week. Extensions will only be granted on a case by case basis. The tournament will begin December 17th. Once all players complete a round of matches, the next week will begin.
    • A tie break looks at the match record between tied participants. For example, if Katherine and Dave are tied based on statistics but Katherine won when they played during the tournament, Katherine wins the tie break. When more than 2 participants are tied, they're ranked by the number of wins each one had against the others.
      The second stage will be a double elimination tournament. The date to begin will be determined after the first stage is completed.
    • All cards from Lost Grimoire and all sets prior are legal to use. All promotional cards available on OCTGN are also legal.
    • Players will build a spellbook with the standard amount of spellbook points and restrictions.

    Restrictions
    • Errata
      The Wizard and Wizardís Tower has not been updated on OCTGN. We will be using the current errata even though the actual cards are not changed. This will also apply to spellbook building which has not been updated. So Wizard will be trained in Air, and Arcane only.
      Link to Wizardís Tower Errata → http://www.arcanewonders.com/arcane-wonders/wizard-ability-card-and-wizards-tower-errata

      Disciple of Radiance text change
      Once per round, whenever your Mage casts or reveals a healing spell, Disciple of Radiance may deal 1 direct light damage to a target creature in her zone.


    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 phase must be completed as quickly as possible. You are not allowed to delay Upkeep due to planning.
    ***Clarification***
    Upkeep will have a time limit of 3 minutes. All optional abilities (lifelink, voltaric shield, etc.) must be decided in this phase. You are not allowed to reverse these effects once upkeep phase has finished.

    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.

    Only games from the second stage are required for judges. You and your opponent may both agree to play a game without a judge. If one player wishes to have a judge then the game must be put on hold until a time can be arranged for all parties involved. After the game both players must submit the results.

    There are only 16 slots available so sign up today! Any player can sign up for the tournament after the slots are full and be on a standby list.

    You must be submit contact information to participate. This will most likely be your Arcane Wonders forum name. This will be public so if you do not want an email out there, please do not submit it!


    I highly recommend getting a Challonge account. It will make it easier to update your standings, but also keep your record throughout other OCTGN tournaments.

    ***************Please Read This****************
    There will be no spellbook submissions. You can choose to use one mage twice, and all other mages once. You do not have to make mage choices known before the match. For example if you played the Druid twice, then the Wizard round 3 - you will not be allowed to play the Wizard or Druid for the rest of the tournament.
    ***************Please Read This*****************
    Competitors will be randomized at the beginning of the tournament to determine which group they are in. Until the tournament officially begins you will not know who you first opponent will be.

    Is it one spellbook for the entire tournament or is it different spellbooks and each mage can only be played once?

    Thanks for the question! So you are allowed to use one mage twice in the tournament, and all other mages once. It has nothing to do with spellbooks, so you could theoretically swap in a Priest for a Priestess book you ran already. So you could go Priestess,Priestess (twice), then Priest. After that you would not be allowed to play the Priestess or Priest for the rest of the tournament. It's a slight twist from the last tournament.

    Hope that helps!

    We won't check the cards from your deck. It is not necessary, because you cannot load decks that aren't validated by the deckbuilder AND because all cards currently available on Octgn are allowed for the tournament). That also means you could totally run the same druid book twice without making any changes.
    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!

    Hello Coshade,

    How many decks would you need for the tourament?
    I'm going to be starting from scratch this year (An unfortunate accident with my harddrive dying), so I would like a ballpark guess on how many decks I should make.

    Thanks

    If there are 4 groups of players with 2 advancing to the final round, you have a total number of 8 players playing elimination matches. So without a losers bracket, you would have to play 3-4 games in group stage (depending on how much people are in your group) and up to 3 matches in the final round.
