Subtitutes ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Maps This tournament uses 5 unique maps built by community members. Each round has a different map. It is a good idea to study the maps beforehand and try to come up with different decks that would perform well on those maps. You can download maps by clicking their name. Alternatively you can download all 5 maps as a zip-file. Round 1 - Cellar by Tuknir Round 2 - The Contest by Scared Little Girl Round 3 - Dwarf Pavilion by neoncat Semifinals - Frozen Cave by Tuknir Finals - Guild Hall Fight by Flaxative (based on original design by Farbs) Deckbuilding This tournament has deckbuilding restrictions as follows: Banned items: All legendary rarity items Banned cards: Whirlwind Whirlwind Enemies If you use a banned item or a card, you will automatically lose the match. However if you take an item by mistake that has a banned card, but you do not actually play that card during the match, no penalties are given. Apart from banned items and cards mentioned above, you may use any builds you like. This includes classes, races and items. You may either keep the same build between rounds, make minor modifications to it, or even change it completely. In other words, you may use the same build for each round, use a different build for each round, or something in between. Keep in mind that you only have a few minutes between rounds to change your deck. It is a good idea to store the decks you want to use beforehand, because you might not have time to do it manually. Showing Up Enter the Card Hunter chat room no later than 10 minutes before the tournament is supposed to start. This is because the organizer needs time to confirm that we have full roster. If you arrive later, we cannot guarantee your spot in the tournament. If and when one or more of the participants fail to show up on time, substitutes will be used to get a full roster of 32 players. If there are not enough substitutes, participants will be taken from the chat room on a first come first serve basis. If you have signed up for the tournament but fail to show up for any reason, even a good one, you will be denied access to the next tournament. This minor penalty is to help ensure that people sign up only when they know they can actually participate. Rounds Tournament has 5 rounds, each lasting 30 minutes. Matches last roughly 20 minutes, after which there will be 10 minutes of downtime during which the organizer updates the brackets and the participants may change their decks, walk the dog, or go to the toilet. Brackets Organizer will post tournament brackets on this forum topic. Find your name and you will find your opponent. Brackets are updated as the tournament goes forward. Creating a Custom Game The player who hosts a custom game, always goes second. This is why each round, the organizer flips a coin to see which player is the host: player 1 (name above) or player two (name below). This will be announced on chat at the start of the round. If you are hosting, do as follows: click "Create Custom Game" click "Load.." Find the map file of that round (that you have downloaded beforehand). You can download all maps using the links at the bottom of this post. Choose the name of your opponent at the right side of the window Click "Create Game". If the other person is hosting, just wait for the invitation and accept it when it arrives. The Match Tournament matches are best-of-one. This means that whoever wins the match, will go forward to the next round, and whoever loses, is instantly out of the tournament. So remember not to lose! Each player will have a timer of 10 minutes. This is only half the time you usually have, so it is a good idea to practice making faster moves. You do not want to lose because you ran out of time. It happens easier than you think. Disconnects Because disconnects are so easy to fake, and it is virtually impossible to get caught doing so, the person who gets disconnected will suffer some kind of a penalty or even lose. This might not always seem fair, but it is the only way to discourage cheating. If a player disconnects during round 1, there will always be a rematch. As a penalty, the player who disconnected must not play any cards during round 1 of the rematch. At the start of round 2, the match continues normally. If a player disconnects after round 1, we will look at what the score was. A) If both players had equal score, or the player who disconnected had a higher score: there will be a quick rematch using 5 minute timers. As a penalty, the player who disconnected must not play any cards during round 1 of the rematch. At the start of round 2, the match continues normally. B) If the player who disconnected had a lower score: the player who disconnected,loses the game and is out of the tournament. Posting Match Results After the match is over, winner of the match must post the final score (number of victory points) on this topic. For example: To everyone else, please refrain from posting on the tournament topic when the tournament is in progress. Otherwise it will be difficult for the organizer. Prizes Blue Manchu has kindly agreed to give us pizza as prizes. Pizza will be distributed as follows: 1st place: 400 pizza 2nd place: 240 pizza 3rd place: 160 pizza 4th place: 80 pizza Closing Words If you have any questions, please post them on this topic. Thank you and good luck to everyone!
