Cage Match Tournament 1: Nocturne

Cage Match Tournament 1: Nocturne

It's that time again: time for a new tournament style, and I've got you covered. This one features a cage match for every match.

This tournament is expected to run from March 13 until April 10, though if you are not intending to win any matches, it will be over sooner for you.

Tournament Structure

There will be 16 participants placed into a single elimination bracket based on Shuffle iT rating mu at the March 13 rating update.

Each match will be expected to be completed in 1 week. This gives the following schedule:
Ro16: March 13 through March 20
Quarterfinals: March 20 through March 27
Semifinals: March 27 through April 3
Finals: April 3 through April 10

Adjustments by a few days may take place to accommodate scheduling difficulties, but I hope that nobody signs up for whom working with this schedule might be a concern.

Match Structure

Each match will be first to 3 game wins wins the match, with ties counting as 0.5 wins for each player. Should players reach 3 wins simultaneously, games should be played until a game is won, and the winner of that game the winner of the match.

There should be alternating starts, with the first player for the first game the lower seeded player (higher number).

For each match, the card assigned for that match should be fixed into all games with the remaining cards fully random. This can be done by going to 'Select Kingdom Cards’ and typing the card name into the text box in the lower left hand corner.

Card Assignment

Each match will be assigned a card based on the results of this poll as of March 12 (which anybody can fill out; please only do so once): https://goo.gl/forms/89FhUCMjKmagslvr2

This poll is now closed. Results can be found here. Ties were broken by my decision. I did not otherwise vote.

The top voted card will be assigned to the final, the second to the 1-seed semifinal matchup, the third to the 2-seed semifinal matchup, the fourth to the 1-seed quarterfinal matchup, the fifth to the 2-seed quarterfinal matchup, etc.

Spectator Friendliness

I intend for this tournament to be as spectator-friendly as possible. This will mean the following 3 rules:

  • ‘Players can see Spectator chat’ must be turned off
  • Spectators must be allowed to see the hands of both players
  • All matches must be announced at least 1 hour in advance on the Dominion discord or on the match calendar at least 12 hours in advance, optionally (and preferably) both. You should include the assigned card in your description.

Signups

I will take the first 16 signups in this thread. I hope to have gotten that many by March 12. A list of those signed up and another link to the cards poll will be in the following post, as well as a bracket and results (when available).

Match Reporting (addition)

Please report the result of your match in this thread. Include both the score of the match and how many games the card for that match was gained in and by how many players (and if only by one player whether the person who gained it won or lost).

And as always and most importantly, have fun!

Sign ups are full so I might get to this sooner than the stated date by a day or two - if you want in feel free to attempt convincing somebody to give up their spot, and of course you can still vote for the cards which will be fixed into the games.

Below I have listed the matches for the first round along with the card for each of them. I have also linked to send that person a Private Message here, though I suggest using discord for scheduling if possible and remember to announce your matches. This list is repeated in the second post, along with a link to the tournament bracket. You should have these matches completed by Tuesday, March 20.

Do I understand the listed matches right - I play with Awaclus in a Vampire Catch match, right?

Yes this is the correct interpretation.

Rules addendum: when reporting match results, please include the number of games in which the card for that match was gained and by how many players (and if only by one player whether that player won or lost the game).

I have done this in my match report; in the vsiewnar-Puk match Druid was never gained (this isn't true - see video a couple posts down from here).
