    That makes a lot more sense.
    A 6 card side deck is not enough, if you end up going against a generally unfavorable match up (eg. shaman vs hunter) just changing 6 cards won't help considering the class is weaker because of its fundamental mechanics more so than the card selection.
    Also making the decklists public is counter productive, now I can just look up what the applicants are playing and register generally favorable decks against the majority, besides you don't have a meaningful way to check if people stuck with their registered decklist anyway :p

    Definitly agree, if I considered it something else than "for fun". Right now I think it's better to get it going and have a 2nd tournament sooner than pushing up the 1st.

    Also personally I'd prefer the rule set to allow to either have more decks than you need to win or allow the use of the same deck again. Because I really don't like the "beat all 3 decks" format since if you lose with a favoured deck it either came down to a misplay or sheer luck, it shouldn't mean you are forced to play another deck that would have a lower chance to win in the matchup.

    The "beat all 3 decks" format forces you to make three "good all around" decks and doesn't really allow for much creativity imo.
     
  3. It's a f*cking mini tournament, who even bothers to stalk others' decks -_-

    So first you say that you should be allowed to use the same deck all the time even if you loose with it. You later say that being allowed only three decks does not offer enough creativity. But using the same deck 3 times does?

    In my tournament you were allowed to use more than 3 decks but only three decks in one competition so if you won you were allowed to use 3 different decks against the next competitor if you wanted.

    Well one doesn not exclude the other, people could be allowed to have more than 3 decks and play with the same deck all games too.

    First example would be to prevent the steamroll that can happen if you lose your first match in a favourable matchup. Naturally you would still want to use that deck instead of another one which is on even terms or unfavored in the next match.

    The second is to allow people to have more specific decks that perhaps lose straight up against some decks but can be really strong against some other, so you don't have to make every deck good against any deck.

    Again just two suggestions based on MY opinions and thoughts after watching other tournaments, seeing as this is the thread for the tournament and I intend to partake in it I shared my own preference.

    I edited my first post in this thread with a screenshot in a spoiler some hours ago

    You're all going to be so mad when I crush all your fancy sidedecks with my single default mage deck.
     
  15. Tonex do you have game recording program? I would love to see that happening, if you uploaded it to youtube

    I don't, so the best I can do is take a screen capture.

    Tournement starts tomorrow and you're no longer allowed to edit your deck. The only thing remaining is to wait for Statheras to announce the ladder.

    May the force be ever in your favor.

    Wait wat, since when was it tomorrow? I'll be attending seminars for the better part of the day, so I may have to drop out. I should be home and able to play at 7:30 pm PDT though.
