Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF) (Crackin wins - token counts)


Welcome to the first ever Awards Dueling Network Tournament! For more info, check this thread.

We just wanted to get the thread going to encourage sign-ups.

There will be tokens, and even if you suck horribly you still should be able to get a decent amount. The official token counts will be released soon, as well as the official rules, or possibly bannings. Additionally, a date possibly, but we haven't decided on anything, so it may just end up being "duel by a certain deadline", since I think that might work smoother for my schedule, personally.

Either I or DF will officiate the duels as well, or maybe both. Right now we're just taking sign-ups since it will impact token counts, so here we go! Let's duel!



Sign-ups:
1. NSM
2. DF
3. Icemario
4. Crackin
5. Yoshi K
6. Freakworld
7. TFP
8. LN1

We need at least 8! We're probably only going to accept either 8, 16, or 32 since we want to keep the tournament even (no play ins). So, yeah, it'll be a first-come first serve thing so if there happens to be, let's say, 12 people signed up, the last 4 people to sign up would get cut. (this is just what I'm thinking, but we may be able to work something out, I just have to talk to DF first)


Rules (please read!):
1. Your must adhear to the official banning list. When constructing your deck, or looking at your deck, cards with a "no" symbol can not be used. Also, cards with "1" or "2" on them mean you can only use that number in your deck.
2. Additionally, we're banning Pendulum Summoning. Everything else is allowed. (Fusion, Synchro, XYZ, Ritual, etc.)
3. TCG and OCG cards are both allowed.
4. No siding or use of side deck between matches.
5. Matches are two out of three
6. You must use the same deck throughout the tourney. No siding, no adding or removing cards. etc.
7. Refer to the officiator if you are confused or there is a disagreement.
8. Exodia is banned just kidding we're unbanning it

I'll bite, though I haven't played in forever and probably won't do so well.

Never played yugioh before but tokens.
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!)

OK, we got 8! I'm still taking sign ups to see if we can get to 16, though.
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

OK, sign-ups will be open until the 24th. After that we'll announce token counts as well as other information
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

Are these going to be best out of 3's?

I think that would be for the best. This is just going to be single bracket too right? (no losers bracket for the loser of a match to try and redeem themselves) This is just for fun so I won't take it too seriously but it'd be nice if the bracket was seeded well (likely winners on opposite ends, good players don't play each other first round, etc.)

These are going to be the best 2 out of 3. About the seeding, we have not talked about that yet, but we may take that into consideration.
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

That's good to hear. Can we switch decks after a round (I win first round with Hands against *person1*, play second round with Synchrons against *person2*) or are we locked in.

Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

Yeah you can only use one deck the entire tournament and cannot change your deck at all. I have no idea how we can regulate that other that forcing participates to show us their deck, but that is not cool. So probably will just go by honor system.
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

or we can say what deck we are going to use here before we play and have both players be the witnesses.

If I say Hand deck and then swap to Synchrons, there's another player that can tell you right here. They can even screenshot if necessary.

I need to duel with some of you some more so I can decide. Synchron is pretty great, but so is Hands. I have a little while to decide.

Yeah, that is the least we could do, but for tiny changes like swapping out de-spell for mystical space typhoon, that may be hard to tell
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

OK, I'm going to go ahead and close sign-ups then. Looks like we got an 8 person tourney. More info on tokens will come shortly.
 
Re: Dueling Network Tournament (Hosted by NSM and DF :D ) (tokens!) (check rules)

Please make an account and post the name here. More details soon.

EDIT:

OK, we're unbanning Exodia. Also, the tournament will take play from the 21st to the 25th! (I don't know if we'll finish it, if need be we'll finish a couple matches the next week).

We just want everyone's schedule to work out (since I know mine is just so busy) so you'll have time somewhere (hopefully) to play your match(es).

These are the first matches of the tournament!



DF vs TFP
Crackin vs Freakworld

Ice vs Yoshi K
NSM vs LN1

The winners of the two pairs will face each other, and then those winners will play for the championship.

More info coming momentarily!
