Of course. Will show them on Saturday
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!

The first official Thunderdome tournament is over.

http://challonge.com/ThunderdomeOne

Although we had some problems with streaming and players not playing, we had fun and we hope all the players had a good time too.
We learned a lot about organisation and tournament setup, next time will be even better.
Expect to see the next tournament on September/October and prepare yourselfs, because we might have a special surpriese guest on the Thunderdome II. :)

Big thanks to Coshade and Intangible for their assistence.

See you next time ... in the arena!

There are several who have worked on this over the last couple of years. Cosworth (not to be confused with Coshade) who was the original Dev. of the module, there is still alot in there that you would call his. lettucemode did a whole lot of work once Cosworth stepped away from the project. ACG is the latest addition to the team and has added so much to the project, the Battle Calculator being (IMHO) one if the two greatest improvements to the module, the other of course is the card attachment logic which I had the very very basics done when ACG came on board. Then of course there is little ole me. I have been since the beginning focused on the card data and the data entry involved around them. I have added basic bits here and there along the way to the code too.

I have watched several of the games played in this tourney and I have to say I am mighty pleased with the player base online growing as fast as it is and many of the fantastic players! We are all lucky to have players who love the game as much as Schwenkgott, the original playtester for the OCTGN module and inspiration for many many improvements to overall module. He has taken his own time to organize this, referee, record and comment on these matches. A big big hand goes out to him!

The Arcane Duels team of Intangible0 and Coshade who have been making fantastic videos helping all players both Online and IRL. They have taken their personal time and refereed these games, recorded the videos, and the live color commentation has been fantastic and had many great observations of what and why players were doing what they are doing.

Finally we have to thank Arcanus (the man himself Brian) for creating such wonderful games along with the crew of Toxiq and Laddinfance and all of the others involved behind the scenes. Literally we wouldn't be able to do this with out them! Thanks guys!

Wow Sike, that was incredibly elegant. I'm just going to make you write out scripts for all our videos now, that's way better than the improvised stuff we do.  ;)

You forgot to thank your parents, since if they didn't give birth to you you wouldn't be here to work on the OCTGN module. You also forgot to thank Tolkein for inventing the modern fantasy genre, and wotc for creating the first customizable strategy game. And while you're at it, you might as well thank the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs, without which humanity, and therefore mage wars, wouldn't exist.

The question that was being asked was specifically about octgn mage wars, not the game as a whole. But other than that I completely agree with the sentiment. Mage wars is awesome and I'm thankful for it.

This is being said a few months early though...

Oh yeah, forgot to thank Imaginator for his snarkyness. Truly I mean it.

There have been a lot of new faces lately and I thought that a good write up was due. :)

1. Didn't intend to be rude, just thought it was kind of funny. I meant it as just friendly ribbing, I really didn't mean to make you feel bad.

2. I agree, I just thought it seemed a bit out of the blue, especially since the actual question being asked was specifically about octgn mage wars, not mage wars in general. And it seemed like this coming thanksgiving is now a missed opportunity. Still, a good write up was due, and you did an excellent job. :)
