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

No :)

The idea is to do this every month.
And it shouldn't matter if you have to sit out a month or two. (I'm busy next month)

We are 4 or 5 players at the moment for June, so that's a max of 3-4 matches.

Keejchen vs Shoopuff
Shark vs Biblo

Then the final

Jbussaw enters from midjune if we can get some more players! (7 or 8)

This is the first of hopefully a steady monthly tournament.

Time limit is 3 hours as per Coshade and my suggestions.
Feel free to agree otherwise if you both have time and lust for longer games.
But i would love if we could test the time limit.

I see four spots are taken. I would like to be number five in case this jumps to eight people.

Great GSweatt :)

You are actually #6.

1. Biblo
2. Keejchen
3. Shark
4. Shoopuff

Thats group A starting now.

Group B will start in "mid-june"  whenever Jbuzzsaw79 tells us that is.

5. Jbuzzsaw79
6. GSweatt/-Starscream (OCTGN name)
7.
8.

If time permits we will have a final between group A and B.

Try to be pretty active here to arrange matches - we will need to drop inactive players to keep this moving forward. And its perfectly fine, if something happens - so you can´t play or respond to forum post.
But then just join the next group.

Time limit will be 3 hours per game, with everything gaining Finite Life after 2˝ hours.
If nobody is dead at that time you each roll a d12 an add it to your remaining life to determine a winner.

Note that is not cut in stone. Its first try. Should make it easier to arrange matches, and play them.

Feel free to arrange longer matches or concede instead of rolling the yellow dice if you think you are hopelessly behind.

I hope this work out, so we can have regular mini OCTGN tourneys.

We are going with brackets of 4 for now, as it seems easier to manage and kick-off.
Then try to arrange matches between group A and B etc.

Alright, I mashed the thing together, let's get it rolling. https://challonge.com/q8100e1o

I rolled a die to mix "group B".

There is a new voting/predictions system on Challonge. No idea how it works, so I turned it on obviously, you can win imaginary internet points.

Should all games be recorded? I will probably do commentary on my own games, but even if games get uploaded without commentary, I'm sure someone will find it interesting.

It is nice to have video proof in case of disputes, since we do not have judges. However, as far as I recall, there has never been any disputes, and we are not playing for any real prizes here, so it is not 100% necessary.

We are going for speed first.
So you will have to fix disputes yourself, or get help.

Great that we have 8 people already!
Its 3 matches total, so should not become a problem.

Id love if you would announce it here, the time for when you are gonna play.

So Sharky.
Ready to rumble?

If you are going to run the tournament I would highly suggest a house rule of Disciple of Radiance being once per turn. If the rule isn't there, then I highly suggest running it!

I'm against that rule. I want to face someone who tries to "abuse" that card, let me see if it's really so broken.

Absolutely agree, we should just adopt the "Restrictions And/Or Clarifications" part of the admw rules. Better to have one standard  :)

If Juli wins against me it's not necessarily because this particular card is too strong.
