- Players will compete in a 2048-person single elimination bracket.
Each series will be a BO3. Once a player loses with a deck, a new deck of a different class must be played for the following game and the losing deck may not be used for the remainder of the BO3 series. The winner must continue to play a deck until it has been defeated.
- P1 (Hunter) vs. P2 (Mage), Hunter wins. P2 must chose a non-mage deck to play next. P1 must play the same deck.
- P1 (Hunter) vs. P2 (Rogue), Rogue wins. P1 must chose a non-hunter deck to play next. P2 must play the same deck.
- P1 (Priest) vs. P2 (Rogue), Rogue wins. P2 wins and submits score online.
Decks may not be edited once the BO3 series has begun. Players are not allowed to leave the challenge screen once a BO3 series has begun. If your opponent edits his/her deck between matches, take a screenshot of them in the deck editor. This may result in disqualification.
- Screenshot should show opponent Browsing the Collection or Making a Deck.
- Screenshots should show the time
Players may edit decks between rounds of the tournament. For example, decks can be changed between the RO128 and the RO64, assuming you are not late to your next series.
Players may come to the tournament with as many complete decks as they desire, but may not play with multiple decks for the same class in a series.
The winner must report the results of the match online within 10 minutes of the conclusion of the match. Failure to report match results will disqualify a player from future events.
Please screenshot and save each victory screen, in the event of a match dispute these will be used to determine the winner!
All disconnects will result in a loss of that game. (Unless otherwise agreed upon by both players)
No practice games are allowed with your opponent. There should also be no game remakes unless explicitly agreed upon by both players.
All matches should begin promptly at the designated time. If a player does not show up within 10 minutes of the designated start time, the player will be disqualified. If your opponent is a no show, take a screenshot of the offline player in your friend’s list with the time showing.
One hour will be allotted for each series.
Players should make every effort to complete turns within 60 seconds. We will rely on the honor system to enforce this, but ask that players report opponents that repeatedly take excessive time to carry out turns.
There are no card restrictions.
All games should be played on the NA server
- All participants must be currently enrolled college students at an accredited 2-year or 4-year university in North America.
