Stream
A live stream covering the tournament will take place on the official channel on twitch.tv. Streaming will start around 13:30 p.m. CEST (Berlin time). We will use the stream to communicate with the players, so be sure to join the stream to be notified of last minute updates. Everyone is welcome to hang out and watch the action as well!


Rules (read this!)

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 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 Yrmia (same pool as in ranked duel).

The first map to play on will be decided by the players banning maps. The first player to ban is decided at random.

After that it is loser's choice, but you can't pick a map you have already won a game on in the same set.

The winning player (who won the previous match in the bo3) also has to lock in his deck first.

 The brackets for the tournament will be shuffled before the tournament starts!

 Use your Battleforge name for the tournament. If your Challonge account differs from your Battleforge account name, use the "Sign up with an alternate name" feature or change your name for the tournament in the settings. Finding your opponent will be a LOT easier this way.

• Playing at least two rounds in the tournaments will earn you 1 General Booster, even if you lost both rounds. This is meant to encourage players to give PvP a try, immeaditly surrendering or not showing up for a match will disqualify you for this reward. We send out these boosters the days after the tournament. 


Questions
Reply in this thread if you have questions, we will answer them as soon as possible.

Best regards,
The Skylords Reborn Team

Will there be divisions? There may be rookies interested but being beaten to a pulp in their first 2 matches may not be the best introduction to PVP 😄

There have been dedicated Rookie tournaments in the past and there will be more of them in the future. This one is an open tournament with just one division. The double elimination format is meant to give you a second chance to compete if you get kicked out early. There is still the chance to get two strong opponents in a row (happened to me countless times in Toggy's tournaments already), but that's just how it is sometimes.
I still encourage everyone to give it a shot and to also keep the eyes open for the next rookie tournament 🙂

Pure shadow is a beast overall in 1v1 in my opinion, this keeps me away from pvp.

It's so good that nobody plays it!

Edit: What T1 do you play, because if you have problems with forskane AND nox trooper, there's something wrong. Nox troopers are very weak vs fire while more than 1 or 2 forsaken are useless vs nature or frost. One of these might help:

Didn't find a guide for fire T1 right now.

Thats a lot to read.

Thanks people!

I promise, i will get to the bottom of it. 😄 

Though remember that since Radical has written those, there have been a few changes. Good news is that all these changes improved nature T1's performance. For example, in the nature T1 guide there's an emphasis on how dangerous shadow's phasetower is in this matchup. This tower has since been nerfed and people don't play it anymore. Most of the mentioned strategic approaches are still relevant, though. Shadow T1 still excels in splitattacks/ is strong early, nature can still try to build up an unstoppable ball of death /is strong late.

Thanks for notifying me, I have updated the info in Challonge to also show the correct time 🙂

 

Also, keep in mind, that the brackets will get shuffled right before the tournament starts, so your opponent in the first round might still change.
