➡️ Tournament Format:
Our third tournament will be played in Conquest mode with a ban. Players will compete in a Swiss-style event culminating in a playoff top cut.
Players bring 4 decks, each from a unique class.
Each player will then ban one of their opponents’ decks, removing it from the pool.
Each player then selects which of their eligible decks they would like to play first, and then begin their first game.
After the initial game has finished, the winning deck is removed from the pool before both players pick from their remaining decks that they would like to play next.
The match concludes when one players has accumulated three wins (1 with each deck) and is then declared the winner.
Our facility provides PCs, monitors, and mouse pads at every desk. Players who would like to borrow any of the PC peripherals provided at TGS can do so for free but will need to provide an ID. Peripherals include: headset, mouse, and keyboard.
Players are welcome to bring their own peripherals to play on. Those who would like to play on a controller will need to provide their own controller and any adapters necessary to get them to work on our PCs.
➡️ Age Restrictions:
Players must be at least 13 years old by the start of the competition to be eligible to compete and earn prizes.
