Calling the rules of a free tournament 'deplorable' is so ridiculous! Demonic presence is a completely justified ban in the interests of having a exciting and fun tournament. And even if it wasn't the tournament organizers have 100% the right to make the rules how they see fit. This isn't a thread debating what the bans should be and participants opinions do not enter into this in the slightest. They are taking time out of their own lives as well as cards worth actual cash straight from their own accounts, they can damn well make the rules as they see fit for this free and generous event. If you think that this tournament some how isn't 'legit' enough for you then gtfo, but stop calling their decisions deplorable. I can hardly believe the level of disrespect from Nickel and Grinnin.

Wuffles my comments may have sounded harsh but they are not.  Istarune/Nova or anyone who organizes a tourney has every right to make their own rules.  I know Nova's personal opinion about mill/stall decks and my only argument was that banning demonic presence across the board takes some of the best options away from participants that were wanting to play exiles in 2p or 3p. 

I've spent hundreds of hours finding what the most efficient mill/stall deck there is and the only worthwhile combination involves having 3 single purities.  If the meaning behind the ban was to create open gameplay without the cheese of mill/stall then my point was that demonic presence should only be banned in 1 purity exile decks.  I want this to be an open and fun tournament for everyone.  If this is not changed it is not like you will see me or anyone else bow out of the tournament.  These tourneys are still in their infancy and will adapt over time.

Hey Guys

I understand where a few of you are coming from with our ban of "Demonic Presence". Just because the other two bans are for bug reasons does not mean this one is not justified. Me and Ist talked at length about if we should even ban any cards at all.
If we were to ban all the cards that can have little counter play we would be banning way to many cards. This card will effect mill, but i believe a viable mill deck would still be possible without this card. At no point do we say this card is above all others in its problem or impact.
We chose this card to ban as  we believe it will provide a bit more variety and less mill in the tournament.

Im sorry this has upset you but i believe it will improve the quality of the tournament.

The style of play you are describing only exists with triple purity setups.  By banning this card out right you are severely limiting options that any main exile player will have to discard cards to utilize the Exile X.

I overwhelmingly agree with your opinion.  Stall/mill decks were balanced with the latest patch and this move is purely in the interests of who is running the tournament.  It takes away a great card from a faction that relies on RNG, discards and other crazy chaotic mechanics that make Exiles who they are.  If they are heavily interested in not allowing stall/mill decks in the tourney that is up to the hosts but there are other ways to go about it.. i.e. banning demonic presence in single purity exile deck.  I hate to see a bias against one style of play affecting a broad range of options for others.

In one of my previous posts I've noted that the point values for wins/draws and now taking away the stall/mill option will basically lead to either aggro or counter-aggro decks.

I hope Adora's comments do not dissuade anyone else from participating in this tournament.  Adora and I obviously were at an impasse in our match in the gold tourney that ultimately resulted in a decision by Teremus.  Tough decisions will have to be made in cases of disputes and I think that Nova/Istarune will do a great job in handling any situation that arises.  That being said, I do hope neither of them will have to deal with any issues.  Adorabear is a great player and I hate to see him not participate based on our previous experience.

The tweaks to mad monk might seem slight but after testing he seems balanced.  I'm sure he will continue to be on LM's radar but for now he is as good as most other 4 drops.

Count me in! 

I would highly encourage banning Phase-bot.  Not to take away from fun creative decks but this card is one of the bigger cards in the game that lead to de-syncs.  If parasite still leads to desyncs that should be banned as well. 

I'm not a fan of issuing a point to each person if the match is a draw.  I understand for times sake but it heavily encourages just playing an aggro rush all-in style deck.  I wouldn't mind this per se if the point total was 4 instead of 3.  Wins would = 2, Draws = 1 for each.  This would still determine a winner in 2 games except for situations of draws.  Would be fair to all parties imo.

Just want to make sure we are on the same page.  The match between Vexbane and I is for 3rd place?  Then if either of us beat Zanpack we will have to play him again?

You are definitely not on the same page.

I'll try and say it again. DI is to determine the player that will advance back up from the puffy bracket. BE is the match for 1st place. BF is the match to determine 2nd and 3rd place. BE and BF are the two matches that will be BO5.

If either Vex or I lose this match we will have lost twice, knocking us out and deciding third place.  The winner would move on to face zanpak.  If zanpak loses then they play again since that was his first lost.  That is how I interpret double elimination.  I would love to wait for Teremus to clarify again but I have to leave for work early tonight and want to get at least my game vs Vexbane in before that.

What do they have to be worried about when they have Crocodile Dundee?

"But the less sleeper cards we have as we move on..." @ 25:30 into the youtube vid.  Did we just get a spoiler?  Sleepers getting phased out?
