    All of them, and a few more. I replaced Ysera with Black Knight prior to the tournament.

    At a first glance, maybe. But all decks has their weaknesses, legendary or not. :)

    Well, legendaries don't necessarily make for a win. I was able to account for it by filling up on removals and adding a faceless manipulator (really worth the investment btw! I just got it this week after running tons of arena matches, I tried to get enough dust to make it before the tournament would start).

    Although, from the vid (will be posted soon), you'll see it was a struggle, kinda on both sides. His warrior deck indeed was the one that gave me the most trouble, and he played it better than most people I've seen (he wasn't overly ambitious), and took down all my decks in a 3-win streak.

    Ultimately, a little luck goes a long way. :grin:

    I suggest that for the next one, changing your deck should not be allowed. After my first match with Mekket I could've easily swapped out a bunch of stuff in favor of mass AoE and probably stood a much fairer chance. However, I felt that would've been cheating, so I decided against it. Changing your deck mid-game just seems kind of lame.

    Thanks for the input. I agree that it is pretty strange, I felt the same way. I'd still like to allow changes between matches (before you face your opponent), but not during a matchup. Perhaps I'll make it so that changes can only be made to a certain extent (e.g. 6 card deviation from main deck, like tournament #1), so that you cannot completely change strategies from matchup to matchup.

    Although, when in doubt, I should probably follow standard tournament rules. I don't quite remember what their ruling was on that though. I assume they don't allow deck changes, so I suppose I should do the same. I'll read up on it.

    EDIT: As for a quick update, the vids are coming along slowly. I think I can finish the two final matchups by tomorrow. It is just a lot of tedious cutting (my last uploads were uncut, but they took way too long and had a lot of dead time, so I decided to cut these). It takes 30 min to an hour per match, and since we had 10 total matches, it will be a while. :p Finished cutting 3 matches so far.

    I played with 2 legendaries max to make it somewhat balanced. As I knew that some of the players don't got their main on EU

    I'd recommend following the rules of the major Hearthstone tournaments out there such as ESGN, Blizzcon, Dreamhack, etc. Atleast if there is as much participants as there were this tournament. They all share the same tournament rules and format.

    Blizzcon: http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Innkeeper's_Invitational
    ESGN: http://www.liquidhearth.com/forum/hearthstone/463-esgn-hs-fight-night-preview

    They basicly follow the same format we play. The only deviation is that in Blizzcon tournaments the first deck of each opponent is randomized while ESGN is not. No tournament allows any modifying decks between matches or series. You play your decks through the entire tournament just the way you made them in the first place. It prevents cheese such as swapping out a few cards to totally counter an opponent you've faced before in the tournament.

    In the end, I find the format we are using now totally fine as long as we keep getting more than 10 participants. No matter what you decide with the deck changing; I will never change my decks once I've entered a tournament. It feels in a way, just as Deolrin said, like cheating.


    Can't wait! :D

    I will just add my uploads as they come in this post.


    edit: 2x speed to reduce length, which also forced me to add music. The music is from a random techno mix from youtube. Sorry if you don't find it good.
    Purge, gotta see this one :p

    @Mekket: Indeed. If people feel reluctant to change decks, then decks should be restricted to whatever you joined with. I'll have that for next tourney (if I'm hosting it).

    @Chaosy: Awesome, thanks. :)

    Should we expect future tournaments to mostly be on EU?

    Yeah, most people on hive are on EU or Asian servers (mostly EU). You and I are NA, so we're among the few.

    I guess you gotta grind out those warrior basic cards sooner or later.

    If it helps, I recommend just doing the quests on EU in your off time. You'll end up racking gold, and you can maybe run an arena or two now and then on EU, and you'll end up getting cards. That's what I did. (although, I started my EU account two months ago or so)

    I was actually thinking of creating a US hearthstone profile, firstly because I suspected a US tournament in the future. Also one can play on it if the EU servers are lagging or are down completely.

    haha, yes a little late indeed. Hopefully we'll have a third one soon enough though.
