    So I might be an idiot but what does OMP, GWP and OGP stand for?

    Game and match win percentages. GWP is the total game win percentage of the player, OMP/OGP are the win percentage of the opponents.

    It is a system used in MTG tournaments as a tiebreaker, pointless when you have 4 players but when you have hundreds and a few score the same the win ratio of opponents (OMP/OGP) is compared and basically the player who faced opponents with highest win ratios wins.

    Aand grats to all the participants :p
    Hopefully more people join next time.

    Technically I could I've done it before though not a moderator, Purge might be willing though.

    Yes. I can host the next one. I think the 31st/1st should be a good date. I'll try to make a post about it some time this week?

    If it gets enough players, hopefully that'll be enough. I don't plan on doing a "special" themed tournament yet. Maybe for the next one, but I feel like we should go through a few standard ones before doing gimmicky ones.

    And of course, I'll record the games again. :)

    well, somehow there were more people interested in the onofficial one. I don't know if that as due the rather short signup time?

    How many decks would I need to participate? I currently only have one good deck that I'm really pleased with.

    It's up to PurgeandFire to decide but he has been talking about making it a three deck game.

    Razosh is correct. I could allow 1-3 decks though. That would be fine.

    I'm debating whether to make it mandatory to switch after you've loss. Or should I leave that as an option to the player? And should each player know what class they're playing against (before it starts, I mean)? Decisions, decisions.

    As I see it you could do it two ways either we have to use three different and not have to display our cards or you can stick with as few as you'd like but then everyone would have to tell everyone what cards they use. The reason for this logic is that if you are left with the alternative to stick with one deck alone it should set you back a bit since you've put much less effort into your decks than someone who has 3 different has.

    I vote for giving the loser the option to either change deck or continue with the same, in a best of 5/ first to 3 format.

    What do you mean? if you lose against someone you should be able to change deck for the next match?

    I think he means that if I win against him with my deck in the first game he can choose to either play the same deck again or switch deck for the next game. I don't see the use of it though because if you've lost with that deck once why would you want to play it again.

    There are some few exceptions were a player might have an insane amount of luck but if you look at my mage deck or most of the professional decks it's not a deck that relies heavily on luck but rather on being able to deal with most of what you can throw at it.

    It's worth to mention that the other decks might be even worse matched against the opponents deck or you've already lost with a deck that is stronger against the deck you will face later on, if you don't win 3 times it won't matter if you win a 2nd. (since you cant change deck if you win)

    As for the luck; I don't have to mention all of blizzards crazy RNG elements when, as a card game, there is a card draw function to begin with, luck is a factor from the very start.

    Skill and deck strength is appraised with win/lose ratio for this very reason.

    They mostly don't rely on luck. They DO rely on not being unlucky however, if you are unlucky enough you will lose against any decent deck & player. (Although the possibility exists it's not very realistic that you'd get so unlucky)

    I'm not making that suggestion because these things happen often but rather because it's better with than without in the off-chance that it does.
