    The tournament's challonge page can be viewed here:

    Have questions, want to discuss the event, or find members for your party?

    Post here!

    Questions and Answers.
    Explain the restrictions more- can my party consist of: Elf Wizard, Elf Wizard, Dwarf Warrior?
    Nope. You could run Elf Wizard, Human Wizard, Dwarf Warrior; or you could run Elf Wizard, Elf Priest, Dwarf Warrior.
    Note your party can change its configuration between each match, so long as only one race or class is duplicated afterward.
    Click here for a more indepth explanation.

    When do we have to divulge our party setups, and to whom?
    Your party leader must submit a new party setup [to me, through forum private messaging] at least one day prior to the start of your next match.
    If no new setup is received in time, your old setup must be used.
    You will never have to reveal your classes, races, or items used to anyone other than a tournament referee [see bottom of the event post for a list of referees] until the match begins.

  3. I'm split over how I feel about this tourney.

    It's a good-old 3v3 with clearly defined rules, a rough schedule, and everything else that my tiny order-seeking mind loves and craves. But it's going on during my transition to college. As of right now I don't think I will have too much going on that would prevent me from participating, but by then the sign-ups will have closed (and I'm not the type of person who would like to say I can participate and then back out on my team).

    I guess I'll have to wait and see. Regardless, I'll be looking forward to watching live matches if I can, the videos if I can't, and some other third thing here so this sentence can (barely) pass the rule of three. =)

    Each team can make two substitutions, and you won't even count toward those if you end up leaving and getting replaced before your team's first match.
    [Or more specifically, they're not penalized so long as they meet their first loadout submission deadline, one day prior to their match.]

    I'd say go for it, if you can find a pair up for it :)
  5. Oh I read the entire OP on the official thread, so I understand the 2 substitutions rule, but knowing myself, I might make a stupid decision I might regret later if I act too soon, hence my hesitation and mixed feelings about joining the tourney.

    I would play with guild colleague White Sorcerer. The proposed setup seems fine, allthough it might be discussed in detail. We dont have to divulge our team until the tournament, right?

    I am sorry, I still dont get it. May be I did too much logic at university.

    Could you provide details on what parts you don't understand?

    If it helps to think it through, if you list out your team composition in both race and class, only one word can be repeated (and only one repetition).

    • Elf Wizard, Human Wizard, Dwarf Warrior - "Wizard" is your repetition, no other commonalities exist, this team would be valid.
    • Elf Wizard, Elf Priest, Dwarf Warrior - "Elf" is your repetition, no other commonalities exist, this team would be valid.
    • Elf Wizard, Elf Wizard, Dwarf Warrior - "Elf" and "Wizard" is repeated, the second repetition set makes this team invalid.
    • Elf Wizard, Elf Priest, Elf Warrior - "Elf" is repeated three times, the third repetition makes this team invalid.
    Hope that helps.

    Well, 8 is the minimum number of teams I need to be able to have more than one match in the finals :p

    But somehow I don't think throwing a team ineligible for prizes in would help that, amusing as it would be ;)

    do we need to register with a teamname?
  16. DunDunDun

    DunDunDun Thaumaturge

    The party leader will register the team with a teamname in the main thread.
    Technically you can register without a teamname, and I can just randomly assign one to you, but you wouldn't be eligible for the 'best named team' special reward, then :)
  17. As far as the 1 legendary rule, most people discussing it in world chat seemed to disapprove, stating that it disproportionately hurts wizards. If you're willing to revisit the rule, maybe a poll is in order?
  18. DunDunDun

    DunDunDun Thaumaturge

    I'm not really concerned about how it affects balance [to a point, obviously], the sole reason I included it was to make newer players feel like the tournament was more accessible.

    I'm really just concerned about if there are any mechanical issues to worry about, I know a few comments in the other thread mentioned that excluding legendaries altogether was somehow easier to manage?
  19. It would be a lot easier to ban legendaries altogether, yes. Imagine if a guy ran 2 Vibrant Pains. You'd only know that he ran 2 if he plays 7 or more Nimble Strikes before emptying his deck. With careful play he could just make it look like lucky draws.

    Personally I like the one legendary allowance. It's nice to be able to bring that one nice shiny with your build. Granted if someone really wanted to they could game the system. But on the other hand, if they do draw more than 6 NSs, now they have only dead cards. In the end I'm not too worried about someone cheating for a few chests, I'd play for the fun of the tourney.
