This post is for the rules, dates/time, and updates regarding the Top 8 Tournament that will be hosted this month on the Global Server by Spuzm.
Expected Date of tournament: March 21st - March 22nd, 2015
This tournament is currently invite only * and will be a single elimination B03 tournament using "Ranked Legal" decks only.
It will consist of 8 players randomly paired against each other. If a player loses his/her B03 match he/she is out of the tournament.
Their will be 3 Rounds (4v4, 2v2, 1v1) and will most likely be played over the course of 1-2 days depending on how fast players can organize and play their games.
*If you would like to be considered for an invite, either post below with your in-game name or PM me in IW (Spuzm).
Players will report their wins as soon as possible to the tournament director so pairings can be updated and their is no confusion later on. There MUST be a consensus between both players as to who won the match. If you believe this will be a problem please take a screen shot of the final score and send it to the tournament director as confirmation.
In the event of a draw, a single B01 game will be played using the same rules as the B03. The loser of this B01 will be eliminated and the winner will advance to the next round.
In case of a disagreement between players, in the absence of proof, the game will have to be replayed or forfeit.
Decks must be Ranked legal and only contain cards that can be used in Ranked play. Sideboard included.
Matches must be played within the allotted, agreed upon, amount of time and on the correct date or be subject to forfeit. If an exception is required, please contact the tournament director.
Changing decks IS allowed in between each round (meaning you can play one deck in the 4v4 and a different deck in the 2v2 if you advance). You are not allowed to change decks mid B03, however. Once you choose a deck you must face your opponent using that deck alone.
Prize Pool: Players are encouraged to donate an "entrance fee" of at least 1 Epic/Legendary level card (for a total of a minimum of 9 cards altogether - including the non-participant donations) to be given to the 1st and 2nd place winners. If agreed upon by all players this number can be increased or decreased depending on how all participants feel.
