[Online] 2016 Peasant Play-Offs Jan 8, 2017, 8:53 PM
Manudesbois Following the idea of sister morphine (here ) , I suggest to the top 8 players of 2016â??s league to take part in a special tournament only between them.

The aim is to make the league more appealing for players, by giving access to a tournament between the best at the end of the year. Also, it is interesting for spectators to watch the best players of the year play together.

So people of the top 8 (rankings here ), please register in the following doc :

2016 Peasant Play-Offs

If you are not available or do not wish to play for any reason, please notice me, and the 9th player will take your seat (and so on). If I have no answer, it will be automatic.

Since there is no perfect way to choose which system to use, sorry for those who donâ??t like it or would have preferred it some other way. Here is what I came with for the details :
- Allow spectators, but do not allow them to see hands or to chat
- Play with the new banlist
- Aether revolt allowed
- Free choice of deck, give hash as usual
- One full month to finish (in order not to disturb the other tourneys and to deal with unavailabilities)

Phase 1 : the pools are meant to be balanced, and at the same time to give easier pairings to people with higher rankings in the league.
- 1st, 4th, 5th and 8th play together, and 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th.
- 1 hour per game, donâ??t slow play
- The winner of each pool accesses to phase 2
- Tie breakers : 1) game wins â?? game losses (all matches included)
2) game wins â?? game losses (counting only matches between tied players)
3) play again against tied opponents (1 game only, pre-sideboard)

Phase 2 :
- No draw, so unlimited time but donâ??t abuse

Manudesbois Feb 7, 2017, 10:17 PM Congrats to our finalists who offered a very enjoyable match to see! Thank you everybody in the top8 for playing the game until the end!
We've got a winner in the name of GalacticPresident who stood still and defended his first place with honors!!!

GalacticPresident Feb 7, 2017, 10:42 PM Thanks manu for pushing and organising this event, it was very exciting! Thank you for the congratulations, my deckchoice was very rewarding and there were a lot of close and cool games. See you in the next tourney guys! ;-)

zombie33 Feb 7, 2017, 10:53 PM Thanks. Manu you are offcially in charge of the Peasant Masters of each year

Manudesbois Feb 8, 2017, 7:43 AM I don't know if it's a title I'm interested in And I might be part of the players the next time

But yeah I'll try! I'm glad at least some of you enjoyed it, I hope everybody did! Even though it was a bit messy, now the rules we used seem good to me. Maybe just something to do with the top players of pools when they achieve a 3-0 record...but having a direct final seems too fast on the other hand...
