Mono-Set Tournament
« on: November 18, 2016, 02:55:24 pm »

Hey look here is a simple tournament aiming to explore a part of the Dominion metagame that's often left untouched: single expansion kingdoms.

Basicaly, the premise of this tournament is that you will play one game using one set (or the mini sets) from each of 6 sets. Before playing, each player will veto a set, leaving six sets. The six sets remaining are each played with in 1 game each by the two players. This will test your knowledge of sets in isolation as well as your ability to recognize synergy within a set that isn't necessarily highlighted otherwise.

HERE IS THE BRACKET: http://challonge.com/dominion_monoset

Current Pending Games (Bolded game means someone is waiting on you to continue):

Awaclus vs. The Do-Operator



Code: (Official Rules) [Select]
Official Rules:
- 16 players, double elimination

- 3 starts each; play random starts until someone hits 3, then resign until the other player starts blah blah you've all done this before

- Players will be seeded by Iso rank, in a bracket that starts with 1v16, 2v15... etc.

- Before starting the match, each player, starting with the low seed, will veto a set, leaving six sets. Each of the six games will feature Kingdoms and rule modifiers exclusive to one of the six sets remaining.

- If there are any disputes as to the order of the sets played, the first set played shall be decided randomly, and after each game, the loser of the previous game will pick the next set.

- The sets that players will play from / veto are below.
-- Base Set
-- Intrigue
-- Seaside
-- Prosperity (Platinum / Colony on)
-- Hinterlands
-- Dark Ages (Shelters on)
-- Adventures
-- Cornucopia / Guilds (treat as one set)
(note that Alchemy is not on this list at all - will explain elsewhere)

- In the event of a 3-3 tie, a seventh game will be played, with random start, where the set used is the set the HIGHER seed vetoed.

- If the seventh game ends in a tie according to the Dominion rules, the player who went second advances.

- I'm hoping we don't need strict formal deadlines and can just advance between rounds when ready, but if you don't contact your opponent within a week of your matchup being available you'll be subbed out (early rounds) or forefeit (later rounds). If you are holding the tournament up we'll talk. Don't be a dick. We want this done before ShIT is out.

- When posting results, please also include the sets vetoed, just for curiosity's sake.

You're still welcome to sign up as alternates if you want.

Think of it less as "what a piece of ShIT" and more "The new Dominion is the ShIT!"

I'm not attached to the acronym if it bothers people, but it's memorable and easy to type.

I think you should give the lower seed some kind of power though. Either choosing second or getting his set not played, both just seems to tilt it so strongly towards the higher seed in close games.

I'll change it so in game 7 the top seed's veto is played instead.

If this doesn't get to 32 by the middle / end of next week maybe I'll switch it to 16/double elim?

This is not somewhere I ever really look, maybe pushing it on Discord will get a few more interested

I'd say go ahead and join, but if you are paired with someone else missing sets you can only veto sets you both don't have (unless between the two of you, you are missing only one set).

Do you think we'll make it to 16 or do we just go head and play our first round? (latecomer could play against one of the byes)

I'll figure this out tonight when I get home. Maybe some kind of wacky double elim format where first round byes go to players who haven't signed up yet. Definitely want to get this started and do double elim though.

Nah, signups don't end until I get home and have time to deal with this thread, at the very least. Probably some mechanism to sign up late will persist.

So if we count Awaclus, we have 14 here. I am thinking we do 16 person, double elimination, and we leave 2 slots open (the 8th and 9th seeds). If no one takes them, the winner of 1v16 gets a second round bye. If two more people sign up, yay, there's room for them to play!

I'll throw a bracket together tonight, probably. Just gotta get a bunch of Iso ranks.
