How does it work?
— Matches are played in pods of 3 or 4 players.
— Each match is a single game.
— Each match is timed for 60 minutes.
— After time is called, the current player finishes their turn, then the number of remaining players are counted and there are that many turns left in the match.
— Eliminating a player by an action that you control receives you 1 match point.
— If the match is not completed (goes to time and there is more than 1 player remaining after turns), each surviving player receives 1 match point
— At the end of the match, each player secretly votes for one of their opponents. The players that receive votes get an additional 2 points per vote.
— Players cannot vote for an opponent more than once throughout the event.
— Players' overall match scores will be kept hidden from them.
— For subsequent rounds, players will paired around into new pods. — The new pods will attempt to not have any player play the same opponent more than twice, if possible. New pod placement is not be based on current match points.
— Vote for the players you enjoyed playing with. Your votes help others get better prizes. And nothing promotes good sportsmanship like prizes!
— Want to get votes? Don't be a jerk! Try being courteous instead.
— Don't be 'that guy' that plays 'that deck' that nobody wants to play against. This is not the event for you.
— Remember, even if you win the match, it is possible for another player to receive all the votes from your other opponents and beat you! So win gracefully.
— Have fun. You'll be sure to get on everyone's good side if you're having fun yourself.
— It's entirely possible that you can be grouped with someone you played in a previous round; so remember to hold grudges!
