ADMW 2-2 Mage Wars Tournament
« on: January 22, 2019, 02:15:36 PM »
ADMW Open 2 - 2


Standards
  • The tournament will be played in one stage. Each week you will be assigned a new matchup in your bracket. You will have two weeks to complete each matchup. Extensions will only be granted on a case by case basis.
  • 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.
  • All cards from Academy Forcemaster and Warlord 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.
    Any promotional cards that have been officially released in a set will be considered to read as the official released in a set version

Restrictions And/Or Clarifications

  • 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
  • Casting a Spell - Change to the end of the Pay Costs Step
    Previous wording - If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and discarded, and you have lost the action.
    New wording -If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and obliterated, and you have lost the action.
    Everything else remains unchanged about the step
  • Steep Hill
    Steep hill will block Line of Sight if you cast a spell and it goes through two diagonal sections of the zone.
  • Force Pull

  • Trample
    - If a Flying creature attacks a non-Flying object, it loses Flying until the end of the attack.
    - Elusive Creatures can ignore guards when making a Trample Attack
    - Defenses that do not work against Melee attacks cannot be used during the Avoid Attack step, however all other types may be (choosing one during the step following normal rules).

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 and 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.

If you receive a Bye it will be considered a win.

There will be no spellbook submissions.

Competitors will be randomized at the beginning of the tournament to determine which group they are in. You will not know who your opponent will be until the tournament officially begins!

I am going to officially start the tournamnet this Friday January 25th! Keep in mind the bracket is not set to go yet, so you will not know who your opponent will be. If anyone still wants to sign up, feel free to reply here, PM me, or post on the Arcane Duels section of Discord. Good luck everyone!

Just wanted to post the link to Challonge and Discord below!

Hey Coshade, thanks for setting up the tournament!

Quick clarification on the following:


If you receive a Bye it will be considered a win. In that case you must choose a mage to be marked as a played mage.


I do not see any other mentions on the rules for this and am not familiar with the ADMW format (having not participated/seen it before), can you expand on the mage being marked and played portion specifically?

shoopuff, that's a holdover from the original tournament rules. Copy error. There are no restrictions on mages you can play in this tournament.

Hyped

But I doubt that Reddice will show up. Or did he msg you?

New cards allowed? Mage restrictions?
