Cage Match Tournament #2: Empires

Tracer has unfortunately been unable to do the second Cage Match Tournament at this time. I was originally going to try something else, but why mess with a good thing?

For those who do not know what a Cage Match is, it is a series of games where both players play with a certain card, with the rest of the set random. Each match in this tournament will feature a unique card.

The tournament will run from July 9th to August 6th.

Tournament Structure

The structure will be the same as last tournament. Sixteen players with a single elimination bracket. The seeding will be done by ShuffleIT mu rating on the 8th of July.

Each match should be completed in about a week.

Round of 16: July 9th - July 16th
Quarterfinals: July 16th - July 23rd
Semifinals: July 23rd - July 30th
Finals: July 30th - August 6th


Some overlap between weeks is okay, although not preferable.

Match Structure

The structure here will also be mostly same as the last tournament, with a few differences in tiebreaking.

Each match will be determined by the first player to three points. Starting player alternates, with the first player in the first game being randomly generated. Each game win is worth a point, and each tie is worth 0.5 points. If there is a tie, the next game is set to full Empires random, plus the cage match card. Starting player is random, with the second player having the tie advantage. This means if the game ties, the second player wins the game.

For each match, the cards 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 Selection

Due to the addition of Landmarks, Card selection will be a bit different. In addition to an Empires card (including events), a unique Landmark will be also applied to each match.

Each card will be selected from the results of a poll, which happens to be due on July 8th. People who aren't playing can still fill this in. Please only fill in this poll once.

The poll results are located here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DJzGnvhKCCisdgEgd-Ib8ZWBjjt6_slwV6GlCf4sNaQ/edit?usp=sharing

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. Tiebreakers in polling will be decided by me, but I will not be voting.

Spectator Friendliness
  • "Players can see Spectator Chat" must be disabled
  • Spectators must be allowed to see the hands of both players
  • All matches should be announced at least an hour in advance on the Dominion Discord, or on the Match Calendar at least twelve hours in advance. Preferably both. Include the assigned card in your description.

Signups

The first sixteen players will be admitted, hopefully by July 9th. The signup list, scheduling, brackets and results will be in the next post.

Match Reporting

Please report your matches in this thread. Include both the score of the match, how many games the assigned card for that match was gained, as well as by how many players. If only one player gained the card, did that player win or lose? For Landmarks, mention how crucial it seemed to be in determining the winner.

Have fun!

I didn't understand how ties work though. Are they 0.5 points or does the 2nd player have tie advantage?

Ties are 0.5 points, and in the event of a 3-3 tie, it goes to tie advantage for second player as described, Full Empires Random including the match cards. I probably worded it confusingly.

0.5 is for a tie by dominion rules, i.e. when the second player ends the game with a tie score.  If the first player ends the game with a tie score, that's not a tie, it's a point for player one.

Lost to Lemonspawn 2.5-3.5, Enchantress was predictably quite dominating, Bandit Fort was annoying on some boards but Enchantress was oppressive.
