Micah's Weekly Tourney #4 [February 15th]


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 4th chapter of this enduring chronicle, Micah's Weekly's :D



The Backstory


I decided it would be fun to host (at least) 1 tournament, so I figured I would try to host a small tournament with a small amount of players.

With the tournament feature still not released on PTCGO I went to these forums to look for any player organized pseudo-tournaments, but I didn't find many.

Thus, this small and consistent tourney idea was born!

It's pretty simple and straight-forward, no special rules and unfortunately no elaborate prize support since it's all from me =/

With the first tournament being fairly successful, I will likely be continuing this series as long as players continue enjoying it! :D


The Format

Modified, NXD-X & Y


The Prizes*

1st place: 3 XY packs

2nd place: 2 XY packs

3rd place: 1 XY pack

4th-16th: pats on the back

*Prize support may increase if tourney size is more than expected.


The Rules

You may NOT switch decks in between rounds.

In pokèmon there are too many "autolosses" so I don't want someone to switch to playing Sableye/Drifblim/Hammers after they find out they're facing plasma >_> Take pride in your deck and see it through until the end!


The Tournament will start at 2:00 PM [14] PST / 10:00 PM [22] GMT. February 15th

We will meet/discuss anything in the Tournament Strategy Lobby since it's hardly used.

Report wins/Losses in the Team Recruitment Lobby. Since there's only so much text space in lobbies, it makes my job infinitely easier if only wins/losses are reported in one lobby while announcements and discussion are reported in a separate lobby (the tournament Strategy lobby). I'll try to go over this again before the tourney starts.


PLEASE, if you sign up for the tournament, mark your calender/set a reminder, if you fail to show up without notifying me ahead of time you may be suspended from future tournaments =/


It would be amazing if we could get everyone to show up 10 minutes before the tournament starts, but hey, I'm just an optimist ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you have something scheduled for soon after the tournament starts please don't sign up, it would stink to have forfeits and people waiting with no opponent because you have to go to a basketball game or movie or something. In theory the tourney could go for 8 rounds if you keep winning, take this into account when budgeting your time and deciding if you can play the tourney to completion or not.


The Tournament Structure

Single round Swiss (no Bo3), double elimination.

If you lose a round you are sent into the losers bracket, if you lose a round in that bracket you are out of the tournament.




First come first serve.

sign me in please but I hope I will arrive in time for the tourney since I won't come back from my trip until 9.45pm (15 minutes before tourney starts), but delays could happen so if I'm not in the lobby before the tourney starts, it is the reason why I'm not there.But still sign me up

Dalek, SBYM, and Najito, you have all been added! :)



Andreas, I don't fully understand the question, but maybe this is the answer you are looking for.

Pairings happen the day of the tournament in the PTCGO lobby. Everything happens in real time, so you will not know who you are up against until the tournament starts. All players play their round concurrently, so there isn't much of a break in the action.

That's kind of a general spiel of how matchups and the tourney runs, if you have any more specific questions I'd be more than happy to answer :D


EDIT: Seeker you have been added. If you come late you'll get a round 1 loss, but you can still join in round 2 and play from there since it's double elimination.

sorry I couldn't make it due to I had to reboot my computer and reinstall the game, (even though I came home on time from my trip), I would have made it if that problem didn't happen.
