Micah's Weekly Tourney #8 [March 15th] Grand Prize Tropical Beach


Recommended Posts

Tournament edited: Check new start time please


Welcome to the 8th 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: TROPICAL BEACH (or 5 XY packs)

2nd place: 4 XY packs

3rd place: 3 XY packs

4th place: 2 XY packs

5th place: 1 XY pack

6th-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 1:00 PM [13] PST/PDT March 15th

Also known as 8:00 PM [20] GMT.

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 around 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.

If I'm not mistaken, those are both the same time zones.

I'll give it a shot if there's room left, I need something to do on PTCGO other than Trading and Random Battles, plus, There's no real life Tourneys near me for a while

Alright you are in Cytails!


Upon further consideration I slightly buffed the prizes, so 2nd-4th each get 1 more pack and 5th place gets a pack now :)
