Toronto August Meet up - Tournament!
« on: July 04, 2011, 07:34:56 PM »
Hello Everyone! We've locked in our day for the August Tournament, which will be on August 27th.

Still trying to confirm our location, though. We have a spot that looks like it's good to go, I just need final confirmation. I will post that once it's 100%

This time around is Jack's baby, so he's offering the prizes (Ra's Al Ghul Holo hero and Assault on Onslaught Mission set are the top confirmed prizes)

We'll be playing by official (Legion) rules this time around, WITH Marvels.

As before, there'll be a hotseat to record some of the matches, as well as the finals. And I'll be doing another Player pool giveaway here on the forum, for those of you who can't be here for the fun. I'll post all that once I have at least 8 confirmed players.

Cheers!

-BBH

UPDATE!!!

We'll be playing at Dueling Grounds in Toronto, located at 1193 Bloor Street West (Bloor St W and Brock St). We'll start the tournament at about 1PM but we'll be doing registration from 12PM onwards.

The entry fee for the tournament is $10 per person to cover the costs of the prizes (more on that in a bit). You can either pay Jack in person or via Paypal (pay@jacktruong.ca). The entry gift for this tournament is Spawn's Finite Power (Correct Cut) and a print out of the Any Power Teamwork.

We will be using the Official OverPower Legion rules with no modifications except:
1) "Lost" Classic Promotional cards are allowed to be used.

2) The Marvels Expansion is allowed, if you need to print some out, check out http://files.overpower.ca/homemades/super_high_qual_marvels.zip

2) Proxies are allowed for all cards (including lost promos and Marvels) provided they are an exact representation of the real thing. I (Jack) can provide you with proxies if you ask me ahead of time (before the 24th). Colour ones are preferred but black and whites are acceptable too.

In each round, time will be called after 25 minutes. You are to finish your current battle and proceed to play one FINAL battle. The winner is then determined by [Number of missions in Completed] - [Number of missions in Defeated]. If that calculation is tied, then the winner will be determined by: [Number of Characters alive], [Total of Current + Permanent record] in that order. If it's still tied, we'll figure something out.

We will play 4 rounds of Swiss to determine the top 8. At each round, you will be paired up with another player with a similar win-loss record. The first round will be randomly paired.

The top 8 will be seeded into elimination brackets based on record.

In the first round, seed 1 plays seed 8, 2 plays 7, 3 plays 6, and 4 plays 5.
In the second round, the winner of [1 vs 8] plays winner of [2 vs 7]; winner of [3 vs 6] plays winner of [4 vs 5].

In the final round, the two winners will face each other for 1st and 2nd prize. If there are more than 16 people, the two losers will face each other for 3rd prize (and 4th prize if any).

Prizes:
1st place gets a choice of:
Ra's Al Ghul Holographic Promo Card
OR
Assault on Onslaught Promo Missions

2nd place gets the remaining.

If there are 16+ people:
Assault on Onslaught Promo Missions gets upgraded to AoO Missions + Events. Ra's Al Ghul is still the lone card.

3rd place gets Adam Warlock Promo Hero + Adam Warlock toy

If there are 20+ people:

3rd place gets a Mr. Fantastic IQ Hero and a choice of:
Adam Warlock Promo Hero + Adam Warlock toy
OR
Adam Warlock Soul Gem Promo Card + Wolverine toy

4th place gets the remaining.

There will be two cameras recording the matches, please let me know if you do not wish to be recorded. There will also be pictures taken, again, let me know if you do not wish have your picture online.

There will also be two OverPower t-shirts given away.

There will be some colour prints of Devourer of Worlds and Beyonder given at registration if needed. I cannot guarantee there will be print outs of Marvels but if you ask me the week before, I can get them done.

I'm mostly doing this because I want to get better videos, slips of paper does not show well on video.

Looks like I can't make it to the Tourney, or any future Toronto meet ups.  I'm packing my bags and heading west, we leave the weekend before the scheduled date.

This is lucky news for all of you who are still going, seeing as how I was gonna cause some serious damage with my super awesome killer deck.

Good luck to all.  And I will definitely be in on the pick a winner pool.

I thought the videos were great except for that glare on the center front line characters.

Agreed, I'm not a lighting expert so I had no idea how I could go and fix it with the material I had on hand. I'll probably spend sometime to tweak things before recording the next batches of videos.

Probably won't get rid of glare, as long as people are using sleeves. Of course, I'm not recommending playing without sleeves.... but that's how it is.

Updates:

So far, confirmed attendance is as follows:

Myself
Jack
Matt G.
Ted C.
Bamf!
Pass the Gestalt
Hot Rod
The Orange King

Still possible, but not confirmed:
Jason Van Etten
Zippa Head
D'Arcy M.
Day Tripper
Halcyon
Dave L.


I'll wait on a few more before I open the bidding pool for the Mega Power set.

Now here's the fun wrinkle. I have been in touch with both Larry (The Orange King) and Mark Swick (Bornagain79) about the possibility of a friendly grudge match between the two. Both of them loved the idea, so there's a distinct possibility that Mark will make an appearance at our event in August. Not 100%, as it's an 8 hour drive for him, but he said he'd let me know.

If this happens, we'll record the event for all to see!

Good times!

-BBH

Orange King vs bornagain is a solid enough grudge match, but I still want BBH vs dr.death!

Does the winner get to sell his opponent's deck on ebay?
