Final MW Release OCTGN Tournament!
Tournament Structure and Outline
  • This tournament will be played in 2 stages. The first being a round robin in smaller groups. The top 2 of each group will advance to the single elimination stage. There will be a semi finals match, and the winners of those will advance to the finals for taking first place. There will also be a third place match for the losers of the semi finals. The goal of this tournament is to do a run-through of any balancing needed for new cards.
  • To begin, Arcane Duels is accepting entrants. Or you can sign up on Challonge at https://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/pT6bLugU6p.
  • In order to enter, you must commit to playing one mage wars game per week. Failure to do so will result in disqualification
  • If you would like to enter the tournament, email arcaneduels@gmail.com with your name on OCTGN. The target start date is March 28th

    Prizes
    The player that takes the championship will receive a free copy of the new set! Even if you are international :)

    The weekly schedule will be as follows:

    On Challonge your matchups are announced. Feel free to play any matches that you have currently assigned too.

    Competitors have from the matchup announcement on Sunday until 2359 Central US time Saturday to get their matches played and the results emailed to arcaneduels@gmail.com.
      *You can email the result in a text format, but we also want the OCTGN inherent replay files for possible later casting.

      Ideally, there will be a featured match up each week. We would love to cast your replay files.  We do not guarantee your match will be casted, but will try our best!
    Rules
    • If one party has been unresponsive in scheduling a match, they will forfeit the match and tournament
    • If attempts have been made by both parties to schedule a match and it just doesn't line up by the end of the week, let Arcane Duels know and we will try to help on a case by case basis (typically by having the match scheduled for the following week with those competitors being required to play 2 matches during the next week). In some cases both players will be disqualified.
    • If neither player has attempted to schedule, both will be given a loss
    • If required, a judge makes the final call on a rule. Any argumentative discussion that takes an excessive amount of time will receive a warning. If it continues that player will be disqualified.
    • If a player gets disconnected and dropped during a tournament match it will be considered a loss for that player
    • All cards released on OCTGN are legal to use. All promotional cards available on OCTGN are also legal. If there are playtesting cards that update currently existing cards, you must use the newest version. For example you must use the Wizard that has Arcane Zap for 2 mana instead of the older version.
      We also may balance cards mid tournament. This means the newest card must be used!
    • Players will build a spellbook with the standard amount of spellbook points and restrictions. They may change mages or books between games if they wish.
    • 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

    Other info
    If you wish to be a caster please contact me at Arcaneduels@gmail.com. Even if you cannot stream you could always join me or anyone else casting the game. Players are allowed to cast for games that they are not competing in.
    Judge positions will be less easy to apply for. If you wish to be a judge then you will not be allowed to participate as a contestant in the tournament.
    Matches must allow official commentators and judges in as spectators. Non-Official Tournament spectators are not allowed to spectate a game unless both players agree to it. Some games will be streamed live, and may be posted on youtube for all Mage Wars fans to view.

    Logistics
    ALL coordination is suggested to be done through email. We also have been accepting Discord messages as well. Make sure to include Arcane Duels in your message so we can easily track match up coordination (everyone should CC arcaneduels@gmail.com or Coshade when figuring out when you can play your match). This helps us see if someone has been unresponsive and can take appropriate action

***General Announcement***

Due to the amount of players that have requested we have a championship match we have changed the style of the tournament from swiss to the following below. You do not have to do anything, and if you haven't signed up yet please feel free to but do it soon!

This tournament will be played in 2 stages. The first being a round robin in smaller groups. The top 2 of each group will advance to the single elimination stage. There will be a semi finals match, and the winners of those will advance to the finals for taking first place. There will also be a third place match for the losers of the semi finals. The goal of this tournament is to do a run-through of any balancing needed for new cards.

***General Announcement - 2***

Well you all rock. We ended up doubling the amount of players entering the tournament on the last day. Because of this we had extended the round robin to be 4 groups of 4 players each. Only one player will advance to the semi-finals. I am updating the front of this page to reflect the groups. If you have trouble contacting your opponent - feel free to contact us at Arcaneduels@gmail.com, or pm me on Discord.

Good luck everyone!
