Title: Noctournament (Dualset)
Post by: traces Around on November 16, 2017, 07:10:08 pm
This decription uses US Eastern time, so the end of a day is the following date at 5 UTC.
Noctournament

With the release of Nocturne, it seems like a fine idea to run a tournament in which nobody knows what they are doing, so this is that tournament.

This tournament will run from Sunday, November 26 until whenever it finishes or people get bored with it, and will require playing 2 matches in the first 10 days and then 1 match each week thereafter if one advances.

Signups will be in this thread. Signups before the end of Tuesday, November 21 guarantee a spot and signups after November 21 but before the end of Saturday, November 25 will be taken in order until the last multiple of 6.
I will list those signed up in the post below this one, which will contain match pairings and links to brackets once those are available.

You will need to have an active subscription to Nocturne on Shuffle iT to participate.


Format and Schedule

The first stage will take place with groups of 3, each player playing 1 match against the other two in the group by the end of Wednesday, December 6th.

I will seed those signed up by Shuffle iT rating mu at the end of November 25 and then randomize the order a bit with lower seeds more likely to move, then snake this randomized order to get the groups of 3 (so if there were 12 participants randomized to the order 1 through 12, the groups would be {1,8,9}, {2,7,10}, {3,6,11}, and {4,5,12}).

If a person completes no matches they will be removed from the tournament; otherwise, the players in a group will be ordered first according to matches won, then head-to-head result with those one is tied with, then total number of games won. A drawn match will count as half of a win.


The second stage will be single elimination in a bracket with other participants who finished in the same position in their group (so there will be 3 brackets here) and need to be finished by the end of the week after match pairings are posted, which will be a Wednesday.

This means that signing up will guarantee at least 3 matches: two in the group and at least one in the single elimination.

Players will be seeded in those brackets by the expected seed for the place for that bracket. The number of players may not be a power of 2; in that case, higher seeded players will have byes into the next round.

The player who wins more games will advance. If the match goes unplayed I will advance whoever I see fit based on the scheduling complaints I receive.

I am fine with you scheduling and playing matches as soon as you know who you will be facing.


Match Structure

Each match will be 6 games with alternating player order with the first player for the first game being whoever is hosting the table.

The player who is going second will choose one set that is not Nocturne, and the cards for the match will be randomly selected from Nocturne and that set. Here, we will consider (Cornucopia and Guilds) and (Alchemy and Promos) to be one set.
This can be set up in client  at a table by going to "Select Kingdom Cards" and making sure that the sets being used are checked and others are not - the randomization from this is enough.


If in the single elimination stage a player reaches 3.5 wins, you may terminate the match.

If in the single elimination stage a match is tied after 6 games, play games only with Nocturne cards with random player order until one of the players wins a game - this player wins the match (as they will have won more games).


When reporting match results, one should provide the score and game numbers. Reporting of match results will eventually take place in this thread.


Spectator chat should be turned off in all games, and I encourage you to announce your matches on discord so that others may watch. (https://discord.gg/txmNahd)

If there are questions about any rules ask in this thread.

Lastly, and as always, have fun!

I'll play this.

What will be used to select the kingdoms? Our RNG of choice, or something else?

ETA: will the kingdoms necessarily consist of 5 cards from one set and 5 cards from the other? If so, and if YW is in the kingdom, can the Bane card come from either? What about events and landmarks?

Second post has been updated with the groups.

Be sure to schedule and play matches against both of the other players in your group by the end of Wednesday, December 6th.
In that post I have made each player's Shuffle iT username link to the form for sending them a private message on this forum to schedule if that is the desired method for you.

Have fun!

You wrote in the OP that the second player chooses the expansion, other than Nocturne, from which cards are selected. But we have to pick the Kingdom cards first, start the game, and then the client decides who's going first at random. So how does this work?

I believe the advanced settings on the client allow you to choose player order.

Indeed, this is the case. However, I forgot to specify what to do about the first game, so have added a piece on that.

Huevos Locos has not responded to scheduling requests from their opponents and it is within 24 hours of a reasonable time to start sleeping for one such opponent before the deadline, so I will disqualify Huevos Locos.

I don't know about recordings - this is a casual tournament so I'm not putting anything together - but all but one or two of the matches for this tournament have been announced on discord (as linked in the opening post) to watch live, and the finals (all of them) certainly will be as well.

Alas, I had a win in my final turn of Game 2 (though it's super tricky). This is at 1:14:22 in the video, but you probably need to play it out to see what I could have drawn. This was game #10308126 and the turn starts at decision 287. The double Province turn starts, as the commentators noticed, with trashing the Pixie for the Field's Gift to give me more actions.

Here's the log of what could have been that turn:
S plays a Cursed Village.
S draws a Tormentor and a Will-o'-wisp.
S plays a Will-o'-wisp.
S draws a Will-o'-wisp.
