Note: Participants won't have to read following information. It is just here for people who are interested about it. Rules that participants will have to read will be much shorter and specific. Links attached to words will be in blue colors. Format: 2 types of tourney will take place at the same time. Score and Elimination. Score: It will have 3 stages. Stage 1: Pod size: 5 player. Pod number: depends on number of players. ALL/5 1 Winner from each pod. Second place holder gets placed in Losers pod. Each player plays 3 gamers(opponents randomly determined). Match type: Spin The Wheel or Normal Losers Pod: 1 winner from losers pod. each match 5 min Match type: Special maps(very short and simple maps) Extra rule: Person with most stars wins, time does not matter. If both players do not obtain any stars or obtain same amount of stars, both lose. After battle ends, number of stars can be seen on after battle screen. players will need to take screenshot of that. Stage 2: Pod size: (ALL/5)/4 Pod number: 4 1 Winner from each pod Each player plays 5 games(opponents randomly determined). Match type: Spin The Wheel or Normal Stage 3(Finals): Pod size: 5 player. Match type: Special Arena Maps. Each play 1 game against every pod member. Following rules apply in all the mentioned stages: In a pod, if players have the same amount of victories, one with the most amount of total stars obtained in that pod is placed higher. If they have same amount of stars and victories, then they battle each other. Elimination: Brackets will be randomly generated.(see the attached link. So every player will battle random opponent. Match number: Best out of 3 until Semifinals. Best out of 5 after reaching it. Match type: Spin The Wheel or Normal until reaching finals. After reaching it Special Arena maps. After each stage player number might be rounded down to make it even. Player with least amount stars obtained in all previous matches will get eliminated. Example: lets say 100 people are playing the elimination format. After stage one 50 will be remaining, then 25 - here 1 player will get disqualified based on stars obtained, so 24 will remain. next stage 12 will remain, next stage 6, next stage 3- so again here 1 player will get disqualified. And remaining players will battle for first place, disqualified player will get third place. Another example: (80, 40 , 20, 10, 5-1, 2, 1) - only 1 player disqualified here. This might not even be needed because I suspect many will miss their matches. After winner is determined battle for third place will begin. Prizes: Bank: 5o00 pizza + 5 x 10 dollar pizza codes = 6650 pizza Score: 1st: 965 2nd: 660 3rd: 440 4th: 360 5th: 200 4 player who hold second place in stage 2 pods: each get 200 pizza. (200x4) Elimination: 1st: 965 2nd: 660 3rd: 440 4th: 360 quarter-finals losers each get 200 pizza. (200x4) Match Types: Players will be able to choose if they want to play the "Spin The Wheel" mode or not. During a battle between 2 players, "Spin the Wheel" mode will be played only in a condition if both agree on it. Normal Mode: Maps: Matches will be played on 8 arena special maps. Map will be chosen randomly each round out of the 8 presented. In the finalists pod for score format and after reaching quarter-finals in elimination format each player will be able to ban 2 maps(without telling each other what they have banned), they won't be able to ban same 2 maps anymore times. So in best out of 5, player will be able to ban 2 maps 4 times. Every round total of 4 maps will be banned and match will happen on randomly determined map from the remaining 4 (moderators will present the decided map). maps: Arena Blade Cat's Eye Arena Pit Gladiator Arms Arena Trench Pillars of Suffering Battle Henge Pools of War Download scenarios: w HUGE credit to @neocosm . He made all Arena and Wheel maps. Rules: Each player gets to ban 1 card and 2 items. (might change later) Everything else is the same. Spin The Wheel: Tourney moderators will spin the wheel on website, and participants play on whatever they get. Wheel currently has: 6 special maps and 4 special rule modes, while also having chance to play normal arena mode. Each mode has its own chance of appearing. Contents and Chance: Maze 10% Bar 10% River 10% Swamp 10% Opposite VP 10% Note: There is VP square on which only you can get stars placed at the spawn of enemy. Same type of square is also placed at your spawn for opponents. Capture The Flag 10% Note: You do not gain stars by killing enemy characters and everyone also respawns every turn. Only way to win is by getting on VPS. Blitz Arena 10% 5 min matches with same rules as losers pod + with banning system, played on random arena maps. Citadel Only 10% Use all yellow tokens on Citadel items. Attack On Artifact Only 10% Use only Attack on Artifact items. Blue token only 10% Build deck without using yellow tokens. @neocosm designed these maps too. Schedule And Other Info: Tournament will begin on April 1st. After being assigned in pods and in brackets, players will be given the option to choose if they want to play on Wheel mode or not. Based on This Wheel will be Pre-rolled for everyone and participants will get assigned their modes and rules. Maps will be pre-decided also. Information that a player will need to read will be very short and will be published elsewhere. They will only have to read small text of rules about the mode they are playing (including normal). All a participant will have to do is read a little text, download a map, make a deck and load that map in. Will be as easy of a process as possible. Schedule: How and at what times will players battle each other is tricky to decide and its still up to debate. Would love to take suggestion. Players can set a time to play each other by themselves. If a match does not happen within 3 days(might change), tourney moderators will set up a time for them to play on, while taking in consideration their time zones. The player who does not show up will get disqualified, if both do not show up both will get disqualified. If someone has better suggestion would love to hear! Note: I predict that many players will miss their matches and get disqualified. When 2 people drop out of tourney they player who were supposed to have matches against them will instead battle each other. Until quarter-finals and finalists pod, matches do not need much moderation. Every player will just need to take screenshot of their match ending and moderators will need to write down results and count of stars. Moderation: If anyone would like to help moderate please speak up! They do not have to do much. Just watch a tourney match when they stumble upon it. Help in making decisions and calculating the results. With this big of a tourney would like to have as many mods as possible! This is all for now. Wish all participants good luck!
