Submitting Your Deck
Use CardGameDB or the OCTGN Deck Editor to save your deck as an .08d file (OCTGN). Whether or not you play on OCTGN will not matter as the deck submissions will be sent to a third party moderator (most likely Steven). We will set up an e-mail address for him to receive the files.
All decks must adhere to regular tournament rules. That means 1 restricted card per deck, no more than 3 copies of a card, etc. In addition, this tournament WILL NOT INCLUDE the new cycle. Only cards printed up to and including A Roll of the Dice will be legal.
The first round will consist of random pairings. This is the fairest way to kick off any tournament. Round 2 will pair like records. This tournament is DOUBLE ELIMINATION, which means if your record is 0-2 after the second round, you’re out, at least until the Wild Card mini-tourney (see below).
Depending on the number of players, like records will be paired (“Swiss” style, if I’m not mistaken) for X amount of rounds, consisting of single elimination. When it gets down to the “Final Four,” the winner of the Wild Card mini-tourney (see below) will challenge the Final Four player of his or her choice for that player’s spot.
Wild Card Mini-Tourney
Those players eliminated after the first 2 rounds will have a chance to redeem their honor! All players with a 0-2 record by Round 3 will be paired randomly in their own “Wild Card” mini-tournament. The winner will get the chance to challenge and win a spot in the “Final Four.” All decks used in the Wild Card tournament must be the same as the participant’s original submission.
Please leave any comments or suggestions below, and if we all agree to the above terms, let’s have Theorist work his magic for the Round 1 pairings. Also, let us know if you want to moderate the deck submissions. It would be a huge help in keeping this tournament as legit as possible.
