Hello! I am Monarch, otherwise known as Light Emperor (LE) in game. As most people already know, I'm not super well known in the community as Alteil is something I play extremely casually in my spare time. However, I do lurk forums often and watch people bicker in our chat about OP META FILE SPAMMERS so I'm aware of current "metagame trends" usually. Anyways, regardless, as an avid fan of casual small tournaments, I've decided to host my first community tournament! I have big hopes for Alteil especially with the addition of the new tournament program. With some luck, tournaments will make Alteil more interesting and appealing long term. Also, who knows, maybe chat will be more active now that there will be things to talk about.
This particular tournament will be a "Pauper format" tournament. In addition to being entertainment and stuffs, I will also be using this tournament for numbers on people interested, time it takes to run Bo1s and Bo3s, most favorable time as well as common files, strategies and miscellaneous things. IF THIS TOURNAMENT GOES WELL, I do plan on routinely (obviously abiding by 1 per 2 week limit) hosting community tournaments with various rules and flavors. So, if there are people who really hope that this tournament support by apocoplay flies, I would really appreciate input and support. This particular tournament will not be streamed but the possibility of streaming future ones if there are any is there.
Rules - In Depth - For Now, Rules Will Be Tentative. They Will Probably Not Change Much But Will Be Subject To Change ONLY Based On Admin Judgement OR Community Feedback
- This tournament allows ONLY the use of cards of 1* and 2* (* and **) rarity. This includes SS. EX are not allowed. Hopefully this is clear. Quite obviously, any violation of this rule or any subsequent rule will result in a warning. If the violation is serious or multiple, a DQ (disqualification) may supersede the warning.
Matches are Best of 1. The Finals will be Best of 3.
Please arrive promptly and properly allocate enough time for your participation in the tournament. A max of 16 players means a minimum of 5 rounds (a 6th round involves deciding 3rd place). Please allocate at least 1.5 hours for the whole tournament although, realistically, 2 hours is best in the event of complications.
Because SS lineups are possibly easy to metagame against, participants are allowed 1 (and only 1) extra set of SS. They still must be of 1* and 2* rarity and must be approved ALONG with the file.
All files must be approved before the tournament. Changes in the files are forbidden. All files must be sent in 48 hours before the tournament. That means that if you sign up last minute to ensure we have the necessary players to start, you must attach the file you wish to use immediately.
Some obvious things have not been included but PLEASE read the rules for community tournament players. These rules apply to this tournament (once again, obviously).
Alternatives and Assistant Hosts
I can take 2 assistants and 4 alternatives. Alternatives that show up will receive participation prizes. Assistants will observe matches to ensure rules are being followed and may be responsible in collecting data (win/losses).
Note: SIGN UPS ARE OPEN, HOWEVER RULES AND TIME ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. TIME AND RULES WILL BE FINALIZED BEFORE JANUARY 27 SO THAT GIVES YOU 1 WEEK BEFORE THE TIME TO DROP OUT. If you sign up, the file you plan to use including a list of your 2nd set of SS (optional) must be sent to me via private message 48 hours before the tournament start time.
