Well if my luck holds up ill end up grouped with Mystery, werekingdom, and poopstar. (Just for reference, these are all players who have historically beaten my ass many times. Poopstar has my first octgn play, and loss, of my career. Lol! )

I know the feeling, with my luck I'll probably be matched up with Biblofilter and MasteryMystery again.

If u need more players let me know I could fill a spot. If werekingdom and sailor Vulcan approve my play and think I can handle it that is haha. If needed I'll get to building books! Otherwise I'd love to spectate some games or play anyone knocked out lol. Good luck to all!

If there is room then I would like to see you there.
I believe you'll learn a lot more when playing in the tourament then spectating, I did anyways.

PS: judging from our last match you're already at the level or higher then I was when I played last year.

I know I am not a player in the tournament, but I just wondered (since it is the first tournament that allows eye for an eye)-
How would you handle a tied game in the second stage of the tournament?

Another problem I had when I thought about running something similar to first stage (a problem we had in a tournament of another game a few years ago)-
How do you handle a situation where player A wins against player B and lose against player C, while Player B won against player C and player D lost all games?
Each player out of A,B,C has won 2 games and lost 1 game, and there are no natural tiebreakers.

Thanks for the kind words werekingdom! My problem is I just recently last week started building and tweaking my own book. I just don't want to be an embarrassment lol. But your right u only learn by playing better players. But I'm not postponing or going to put any stress on the tourney I can gladly just watch! If arcane duels post the matches I'll be watching. Coshade and gang your doing a great job!

Assuming no one else wants to play, from my point of view there is no problem if we divide these 2 "spare MW players" into the 4 groups.

Granted, we'd have 2 groups with 6 people instead of 5 but honestly that only makes it a bit harder to advance to the elimination, nothing else. And the difficulty-level from the bracket is already randomly generated.. so it doesn't really matter, does it?

By the way: Anyone still awake and up for a game? :p

Why would a tournament not allow Eye for an Eye? The card has been tested and is perfectly fine not only in Academy but also in the Arena. While looking strong on the first impression the card also has weakpoints (f.e. you habe to save mana, you get a huge amount of damage too, etc.). Sure, it has become more dangerous to go for the big hitters when facing a holy mage, but that is life in Etheria right? Since there are plenty more dangerous situations to overcome, what difference does it make?

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!

Isn't eye for an eye in PvS? Ergo it wouldn't be allowed in academy.

I think Schwenkgott meant here:

But I believe Super Sorcerer just meant the "first time" since it only has been brought out now.
