    Rules!

    -No bugabuse, cheating or insulting the other players. Penalties may vary from a warning to default loss.

    -Disconnection during a game results in a default loss. If both sides agree it is possible to have a remake.

    -Not showing up to your match with after 15 minutes results in a default loss. The plan is to play a round of matches every ~30 mins.

    -After your match go to Challonge and insert the result. That is done by clicking on your match and selecting the winner/stats . The brackets will be updated automatically.

    -The Map Pool is: Haladur, Simai, Wazhai, Elyon, Lajesh, Uro and Yrmia (same pool as in ranked duel). The first match of the round will be played on Haladur, then it is losers choice. Second round will start with Simai, third one... you get the drill.

    -The brackets for the tournament will be shuffled before the tournament starts.

    -As an experiment, no T1 Towers will be allowed in this tournament (Mortar, Phase, Ice shield, Primal Defender). Other supportive stuctures (like Ice barrier) are free to use.

    reative Player Award: Make a creative deck or non meta strategy work in this tournament! The 3 most impressive strategies will be rewarded with 500bfp each. 

    -> There will be even more hidden awards like the Toggy Award, so stay tuned! In total I will use up more than 5.000 bfp to reward special plays and matches regardless on how high you placed in the tournament.   

     

    Well well the Toggy award better has nothing to do with missing Eruptions or battling with dazed Enforcers ;-) . Great move to revive the PvP tournaments, I am definetly in.

    Maybe a kind of Toggy league with its own ranking system would be quite interesting for streaming content.

    With 3 leagues and depending on performance, you can climb up and down in these leagues. This would be done once every 2-4 weeks were some matches would be streamed. The old Battleforge league had this system.Problem in such a system is that it only works if enough players in the leagues are active, which can maybe work with the official release someday in the future.

    Btw i think Impossible and S4n have overlooked that it is a rookie tournament. And good luck to Ultrakool maybe he can shine in this tournament :).

     Hey,

    yeah I thought about a league system already but wanted to start it after the reset.

    I got my eyes on the players, do not worry, impossible is one of the best players out there, he will not participate :-).

    Why best of 1 tho toggy?

     

    Hmm because some people do not want to play in 4hour+ tournaments. Also if they want to play best of 3 the regular tournaments are open to everyone ;-) .

    ...do not think you qualify as a rookie.

    I will personally doublecheck some of the entries.

  8. The answer I like the most would be that I have a lot of Enforcers competing in a Colosseum to earn BFP and entertain the masses.

    But honestly I get a lot of donations from viewers, also I use every Booster/Quest reward I earn for the tournaments.

    Edit: If you complete all your quests in a week and sell the boosters for ~420 you earn 4000BFP. Per week.

  12. Hey everyone,

    Hmm we can have a tournament without T1 towers in the future. We already had some more Nature and Frost starters lately but i must admit we usually see Fire/Shadow.

    Can I get some more opinions on this? Who would like to see a T1-Tower ban in the future?

    Rules!

    -No bugabuse, cheating or insulting the other players. Penalties may vary from a warning to default loss.

    -Disconnection during a game results in a default loss. If both sides agree it is possible to have a remake.

    -Not showing up to your match with after 15 minutes results in a default loss. The plan is to play a round of matches every ~30 mins.

    -After your match go to Challonge and insert the result. That is done by clicking on your match and selecting the winner/stats . The brackets will be updated automatically.

    -The Map Pool is: Haladur, Simai, Elyon, Lajesh, Uro and Wazhai (same pool as in ranked duel). The first match of the round will be played on Haladur, then it is losers choice. Second round will start with Simai, third one... you get the drill.
