nyys, all 3 events will be limited to 32 players. So 5 round Swiss is what we were looking at for Free Build and Basic Tournament. The Team tournament would be 16 teams so we were going to do 3 rounds with a 1 game final. Here is the schedule:

Team games take almost twice as long in SW so we allotted 2 hours per round.

With the Team Tournament ..how is that going to work as far as registration goes? Will there be 16 registration spots or will there be 32 where folks can get teamed up if they dont have a partner going in?
GenCon required it be set up as one event ticket per player, not per team.
We will be making every effort to NOT be matching up players for this. In fact, I put that in the event description, basically saying get yourself a teammate and each of you buy a ticket.
I really want to discourage the notion that a player can just get a teammate later or one will be assigned, because that is not how we are going to do it. We are not a match making service.
Obviously we will adjust to the needs of any given situation. But, what we don’t want is 32 single players thinking we will pair them off. We want 2 players showing up to play as a team. If there is one or two odd man out scenarios we will deal with them, but they would be the exception, not the norm.

Makes sense....was just checking.
Perhaps we can make a thread here for people looking for teammates or something when the time comes.
Yes, that is a good idea. Thanks!
...when the time comes
For the 1v1 and team events, do we need to bring our own cards? Or will they be provided? I'm assuming the games are being played with the prebuilt decks without modification? Do we get to choose factions or are they random?
Oooh.......... I wonder if Truth has any new stuff to show off while he is there.........
If you have questions please take them to this thread:
I don't want to miss something because I am not keeping up with both threads.
