[Online] 2018 Peasant Masters Jan 10, 2019, 10:47 PM
Manudesbois Hello players!

While the new year's tournaments have already started, it is time for me to announce the final tournament concluding the 2018 Mtg-peasant league! This year has been overall less flourishing than the previous year, but the last months have nevertheless been pretty encouraging with numerous 8-men tournaments.

Following this, I will be in charge of managing this final tournament featuring the top 8 players of the league, based on points earned through all Mtg-peasant tournaments.

As a reminder, this tournament is meant to show great play, therefore all matches are mandatorily open to spectators (hands hidden, and spectators not necessarily allowed in the chat (players should agree before playing)) and the only thing to win is honour

Link to the tournament


Tournament Start : Friday, January 18th

People concerned :
1st- zombie33/zomby33
2nd- Manudesbois
3rd- Toufmade
4th- zeroxceet
5th- zebigcoconut
6th- LaCucaracha
7th- Vlalutscher
8th- Lorebroker
9th- Kivan59 (I don't have an answer from Lorebroker at the moment, so if it doesn't change and papaoursdelux doesn't have a deck code ready by then, you will play instead of him)

Tournament rules :
- Play on Rooster Ranges server so anyone can see you play
- Allow spectators, but do not allow them to see hands.
- Whether you allow spectators to chat or not is up to you. If one doesn't want it, then disable it.
- Free choice of deck. Ravnica Allegiance allowed.
- Three full weeks to finish (in order not to disturb the other tourneys and deal with unavailabilities)

Phase 1 : 2 pools of 4 players.
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(/9th) play together, and 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th
- 1 hour per game + 5 additional turns, don’t slow play
- "best of 3" (=>2 games won give you the win)
- The best two players qualify for phase 2
- Who starts is decided by the toss
- Tie breakers :
1) games won - games lost
2) games won (counting only games between tied players) - games lost (counting only games between tied players)
3) in case there is a perfect tie between players (ex: A1 2-0 A2, A2 2-0 A3, A3 2-0 A1, and all three win 2-0 vs A4), I will decide what to do. I think the quicker is the best, so 1 additional game with sideboard between tied players, adding up to the score until there is no tie. If it takes too long, I will find another way.

Phase 2 : Semi-finals and finals (and optional 3rd place match)
- No draw, so unlimited time but don’t abuse
- the 1st of pool A (respectively pool B) plays against the 2nd of pool B (resp. pool A) and chooses who plays first.

----------------------

Share your Hash + Send list to papaoursdelux

Please players, now start sharing your deck hash codes, which can be modified until your first game. We will then lock the cells so it is not modified afterwards. Please make sure your deck is valid (Valideck + Ultimate Masters + Ravnica Allegiance). I asked papaoursdelux to gather all lists in advance - they won't be revealed (maybe archetype if most people prefer it so => see below)

----------------------

PS: Last year I saw the decklists and deduced the deck's archetype and shared the name to everyone before starting the tournament, as most people agreed that sharing just the name was OK, in order not to give an advantage to players being able to watch their opponents playing before (last year was "MGA", "RDW", "Tron", "Wellspring" : trying to be as vague as possible). I'm not sure to use this system this time, so I'm asking players what they prefer.

--------------------

Thank you! And enjoy the matches

zeroxceet Jan 11, 2019, 1:55 PM Best of five for semi and final ?

Manudesbois Jan 11, 2019, 2:21 PM Yes! Sorry I missed the information, I thought it was already written because I took most of last year's announcement

bocco123 Jan 11, 2019, 6:42 PM Hello, i just joined and would like t know where to go online on MTGO to play some matches?

zombie33 Jan 12, 2019, 1:58 PM We play peasant only on Cockatrice. As far as we know they are no peasant tournament on MTGO. But it will be great if we could also organise tournaments there.

bocco123 Jan 13, 2019, 2:05 AM cockatrice?? do you have to buy the cards on there as well

zeroxceet Jan 13, 2019, 9:54 AM No it is free

Manudesbois Jan 15, 2019, 8:14 AM Reminder: the whole list must be given to papaoursdelux, not just the code. The code can be written in the sheet at the same time.

Manudesbois Jan 16, 2019, 2:55 PM Hi guys, the pairings are now ready, I now expect your hash code and you can send your decklist to papaoursdelux.

Second : the decks will this time not be revealed before the games are played. My quick poll showed that there are more people against revealing the deck name than people in favor. However, the games are public and you can use any mean you like to get the information, like in a real life tournament.

This was actually close and I was still missing one answer. Now both issues are tied (4 people in favor, 4 people against), so I'll apply the "no change" rule : the deck names (not the exact decklists) WILL be shared once all decklists have been received by papaoursdelux (either by Mtg-peasant Private Message or by PM on discord)
