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.

i think lich 30/30 ss and belt spear ss needs to be banned. in the past, belt kingdom was always first while undead was always second. those tourneys were not very fun.

Are you sure?
You can't use Violet/Gafc/Bernet SS, EX Regus Soldier and chara hate card.
WK is playable without those?

you have sin SS, shade SS can work for sp drain (though less reliable than the norm) and skel warrior for revive.

for the file, you can open with witch and use leet fencer, haste soldier, combat sorc, sorc monk, and the flying girl for field disruption and flying girl's pinpoint. Also return and tidal are both 1-2*s

Shielded cards equivalent to rarities other than 1* and 2** will not be allowed. I will specify this in the rules when I get home.

I wasn't around when these tournaments took place so I admit there are probably some things that make for irritating tournament play or even imbalance. However, I feel it's important to get more opinions on this before I make a decision. Preferably, if people could verify/discuss this claim, I'll make a prompt decision. Also, if it's not too inconvenient, feel free to post an explanation on the lich 30/30 ss. The belt spear ss does seem very strong in comparison to other ss available so I'll look into beltorat tonight.




And yes, Wizard Kingdom is definitely playable. I've lightly glanced through most of the popular files to see what people would probably draw inspiration from and WK, Star Dragon, Pixies, Undead, Beltorat Kingdom, Gowen Rush, Lawt Rushes of various kinds and what not are all playable although some to lesser degrees. I'm not entirely convinced any of those listed are imbalanced. There are always going to be files that have more favorable matchups than others, this is the nature of card games such as alteil. However, if anyone can make a convincing case that certain cards or factions need to be limited in some way then please do so. I'm all ears and I will personally playtest things to get a feel for the power level of things.
Edit: Although returns seem pretty strong against the viable files at the moment since mid/big files are less common. Would like more thoughts on that.





Aoi, you're registered! Thanks for your participation.
