OCTGN tournaments
« on: May 30, 2018, 02:42:56 AM »
Id like if there where more OCTGN tournaments. A lot more.

Well honestly i would love to participate in one again soon.

Heres a couple of ideas and thoughts.

Id love to see Pudding and Coshade play.

Id love there to be a time limit. Playing on workdays is just troublesome without a time limit.
I don´t care much what that time limit is - it should be up to the players/judges/commentators.
90 min, 2 hour, 4 hour, 12 hour - whatever people prefer.

Id suggest skipping the round robins. Its cool but i think its to much trouble. Stuff happens so i would suggest a faster schedule.

Like 4, 8, 16 players winners advance - losers sign up for the next tourney which start as soon you have 4, 8, 16 players. I think 32+ is to many. 8 is a good number. Then at some point run a winners only tourney.

If we do have a tiebreaker we would need a way to determine who is going to advance if a game is unfinished.
Id suggest remaining life + d12 roll. I mean if your 10 life ahead when we go to time, it might not even say anything about your chances to win if the game had not gone to time.
But its real simple and give the life "looser" a chance.

4 player tourney could be done in 3-4 hours - if players can commit to a 4 hour slot.
8 players would probably take a week or two and 16 players a month.

I do like the Arcane Duels "new mage every game" or something a long those lines.
But you could do all kinds of things: let your opponent choose your mage ahead of time, play a mirror match tourney Siren vs Siren anyone?

I'm suggesting we could have daily, weekly or monthly tourneys :)
I wouldn't be so bad to miss out on a tourney as there would soon be a new one.

With 16 players that's 4 rounds and 15 matches.
          8 players that's 3 rounds and 7 matches.
          4 players that's 2 rounds and 3 matches.

Essentially what I'm hearing, assuming I'm understanding you right, is the gist of your post boils down to essentially....you'd like to play some more Mage Wars?  8)

I would totally join an octgn tournament! Time limits seem important for doing a monthly thing.
What if there was a soft and hard time limit. Throwing numbers out, say something like after 2 and half hours everything gains Finite Life. Then at 3 hours you do a full stop and do your life suggestion. I would use the ADMW time limits for planning/between action phases as it forces the players to actually move the game instead of stalling. Just a broad suggestion. I would love for there to be more OCTGN MW tournaments!

Lets do this!
Who is up for a test run of this in June?
I want 8 players but will settle for 4.

First tourney starts tomorrow Friday Jun 1 and ends at the latest Sunday the 10.

Parrings will be dependent on when people can play - so when you sign up pls write when you can play.
If you cant play during this weekend Friday-Sunday i suggest you don't sign up for this. Just wait until next week.

I'm generally available to play MW on work days from 00-04 or 08-12 (CET) and most weekends. (for 3 hour slots at least)

You have to be pretty active here in this tread and try to set up a match here.
If somebody doesn't respond here - his opponent will get a bye and we will move on.

Next week/month there will be a new tourney anyway.
Love to see this work, so sign up and start playing more.

Can we maybe wait a little before starting this? I'm happy to complete but June is really busy for me.
