- Give your nickname and your Cockatrice Nickname (Column B and C)
- Choose how many 8-players tournament you want to do simultaneously (Column D).
You never choose your opponents or which tournament you join, only the number of tournament you want to do. If it's your first participation, an error message will appear in the spreadsheet with your cockatrice nickname. This error is irrelevant for the tournament, and will be fix later don't worry about this.

Beginning of the tournament
When this multi-tournament begin, registration are closed, the random pairing of the first round appear. At this moment, some registration can be deleted in order to keep the "8 players maximum" condition and also satisfy the largest amount of players. Don't be surprise if you play less tournament as you asked for. Furthermore, the third tournament can be cancelled.

Tournament Play
Each round must be finish in a week, in each case the deadline is saturday. When a round is over, the next one start instantly and automaticaly with new pairing.
You can send a private message to your opponent in order to fix a date to play, this is really important. If you have no response, you must say it on the mtgpeasant forum. If you don't communicate on the tournament(s topic and you didn't play a game before the deadline, you could have a game loss or a DQ. In other case, your score will be a tie 1-1.

sister_morphine Oct 3, 2016, 1:49 PM @max, @current discussion: No, of course not, since I play 4 fun, too. But this argument of yours is a killer phrase. Why play tourneys at all if u don't care for winning them or at least make the top ranks? Then I could also ask some guys I know to play some rounds of peasant with me.

That's why I would like to underline what galactic president said:

I think the cost of listing the top2 players instead of just 1 is close to non-existent and is in-line with the amount of players we usually list based on the amount of participants.

Exactly: Let challonge do the maths. Top 2 is easily calculated and the competitive level is kept up till the last games for most of the players. That's what I meant

Max2070 Oct 3, 2016, 5:25 PM @all : the principe of the decklists on mtg-peasant is the same as every "deck-check"-like or "mtgtop8"-like. I want to have a database of decks which have performed. It could be IRL or online tournament. 2-1 is clearly not a significative result. And the fact only 1 deck is registred in this website should not have any impact on the tournament (like any mtgtop8 website with IRL tournament).

@GalacticPresident : register top2 players instead of just 1 is not fair. It's abitrary to choose a guy with 2-1 (even with a random criteria like diff or OMW considering the number of match). If a register a guy with 2-1, I register every guy with 2-1 (which is basicely the half of the tournament ...)

This evening I will post the rules to determine the number of tournament (I have some spare time)

I don't understand, you still can be happy to be in top rank even if you don't appear on the website ... Another point I don't understand, when I'm doing 2-1 to a tournament, I know that the half of tournament players have the same result as me, so I would not be so proud to appears at the "rank 2" on mtg-peasant (in fact for me a tournament of 3 round is not relevant except for the guy at 3-0).

GalacticPresident Oct 3, 2016, 8:20 PM Ok, you are right. Many players with 2-1 records make it kind of futile.

sister_morphine Oct 4, 2016, 9:36 AM Got your point now. I was thinking of the challonge-system, which provides a clear ranking even with a lot of 2-1s, based on tiebrakers and so on. But maybe this isn't worth it in an 8players-Tourney after all.
