Welcome, To the first PTCGO Winter National Championship!



How it works:



1. You sign up, making a donation to the Jackpot if you so chose.

2. When a max player cap is reached, the Championship begins.

3. I compile a list of every player, and match them up against another.

4. The week begins, and I post the match listings.

5. The players PM each other and play their match before the week is up.

Example:

Player_1 vs. Player_2



6. The Winner posts that they won, and I mark it down.

Example:

Player_1 vs. Player_2 = Winner is Player_2



7. At the end of the week, I compile a new list with the winners, and the next week begins.

8. This repeats until a winner is decided.



Rules:



1. Only Expanded Format.

2. Cheating results in disqualification. (at least 2 players must accuse a person of the same thing for it to be put under consideration.)

3. There is a player cap of 512 players, and the Championship can not begin until we reach at least 32 players, so join quickly and invite your Friends.

4. Please respect other player, and don't use Profanity in the in-game chat.





Donations:


You may donate a pack from any expansion except for XY Evolutions.


How to Join:



In this forum page, type: "I'm In" and send your optional donation AT THE SAME TIME. This will make it easier for me to add you to the player list and accept your donation.

I'll reply; "checked in" after I see your post

How To Donate:


You may Donate by friending me, then offering me one sun and moon energy and your booster pack. then ask me for one sun and moon energy OF THE SAME TYPE!!!!

Example:

You offer: - - - - - - - - - - I give:

1 booster Pack + 1 fire energy - - 1 fire energy

 

(I will most likely remove you from my friends list after you donate, so no offense in advance! ;) )
Prizes:

1st receives 1/2 of the Jackpot

2nd receives 1/8 the Jackpot

3-4th receive 1/16 each of the Jackpot

Optional: 5-8th receive 1/32 of the Jackpot


(Keep in mind that no prizes will be given without any donations , so donations are VERY VERY WELCOME.)


Remember! 512 players may join, so PLEASE invite your Friends! More players equal more fun and bigger prizes!



PM me for questions, or if I missed something here. Only PM if it's important.

Hey, with the new prize structure you've put in place, I'd like to play.

 

Please add my son, McDankMeister as well.

 

We'll be donating a couple Shining Legends packs to the prize pool, but if you have a big turnout (?? over 64 ??), I'll add a few special prizes.

I assume you're going to adjust the prizes, depending on the number of participants?

 

Right now, 512 players = 512 booster packs.  Yet, you're only returning 284 as prizes.

 

Since entry fees for profit are frowned on officially, you may want to recalibrate or clarify.

True. I was actually thinking about it, and now that you mention it i'm going to change that. thanks for the input.

I don't mean to be cynical, but...  I think you're going to have difficulty getting even 20 players.  Just based on past experience.


The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.

As some of you may see, I have changed the Championship quite a bit. You may now join for free! However, if you want to receive a massive prize for winning, you must make a donation to add to the collective Jackpot. Without donations, there won't be any Prizes. So, Have fun and please be generous!

Thank you. I was starting to give up on the player base around here. That would be an amazing donation; and i can't wait for player number 16!

I sent a private trade with the prize donation, but just wanted to make sure you knew that 2 of the packs are actually from my son, so that he's eligible.

 

Also, I couldn't send you the same type energy.  It wouldn't let me.  So I hope it's okay that we swapped a basic SUM Fighting for a basic SUM Fire.
