Micah's Weekly Tourney #5 [February 22nd]


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 5th 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 22nd

We will meet/discuss anything in the Battle Challenge 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.

This is tournament#5, didn't catch it and I can't edit the title =T


Meeting place has been changed to Battle Challenge Lobby instead of Tournament strategy Lobby (there is already a tournament underway there.)

My gmt is +5:30, so i can almost never join in the tourney.

Would be glad if you could choose a more appropriate time for me along with others of the same timezone.

Grizzly you've been added.


Hello Micah477,


I've edited the title to reflect your desired change.


Good luck with your tournament! :)


You're awesome! Thank you so much!

I will post a poll to see what times work best for everyone, I've been meaning to do so. This tournament will probably stay at the designated time unless there is a large pull for it to change. Thanks so much for the feedback though, it means a lot!
