I hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday weekend. It’s been preventing me from getting on here much, but here we go!
With you, we’d have an uneven 17. We could have a BYE during the whole thing, but I don’t want to be dealing with that right now. If someone within the next day or two wants to join before the pairings go up, then we’ll have 18 and life will be perfect again. For now, I’m sorry @stmlacek1
…and finally, there’s myself for an even 16. As a reminder, we’ll be playing 4 rounds of Swiss and there will be a Top 4. I will be doing pairs through challonge.com. After the initial pairing goes through, I will use that site and also manually record rankings as well as pairings for the fun of it.
Third (and most importantly):
I will input all the participants on Tuesday or possibly even today (Monday). Pairings will then be up by Tuesday evening (around 6pm ET), but I’ll try to get them in the afternoon.
Begin coordinating times with your opponents and compensating for time zones when I put pairings up. I would like to have all games played by Sunday, June 5th. I guess you could say Wednesay, June 1st marks the official start time for the tournament, but you may finish your 1st match the day I post pairings.
IF YOU THINK YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY BY THIS SUNDAY NIGHT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW NOW! (I will try and figure a way to work around it, but no promises are being made)
I’m only saying this because one unplayed game will throw everything off and potentially roll the tournament into July.
Any and every deck is acceptable in the Standard Format. Now that the FCO and Generations are being uploaded, everyone can rejoice and play their rogue or meta list. I don’t know the workarounds of TCGONE and how it allows deck errors to happen, but I trust everyone enlisted in this tournament understands proper deck construction. Please don’t be “that guy/girl”.
HAVE FUN! Whether you’re testing for Nationals or you win or lose, just enjoy it. I hope to continue these as long as the support is still here.
If there are any questions, and I’m sure there will be, just post them here.
