Title: Upcoming Overpower Championships 2018
Post by: zippa_head on April 05, 2018, 07:22:47 PM
Hello everyone.

I wanted to give everyone plenty of time to have a look over the details for the upcoming tournament I will be hosting in Toronto this year.

Any questions or concerns, feel free to email me directly as given on the flyer.

We are hoping to make it the biggest turnout ever.

Thanks,
Dan

Are you planning to make it our Mr. Breadmaster?

I know georgia seems far...but if u have a few friends, a carpool idea can work. I know there's a few guys from OK that might be making the trip, they have just as far to come I think.

Hoping to bring out a good number for sure. We really want to see how much interest there is with the game.

Does anybody know if those OK people are on this forum? I am a new player from the old days getting back into it, and I live in OK. Would be interested to talk to a few players in my area.

We can always organize a meetup of some sort. I know there are a few people who would like to get in some more games.
Would be great to have you out. Going to be pushing a bit more soon once I have the date and location locked in.

Hey guys,

I've never played in one of these tournaments before. Which set of rules is it using? The meta-rules found here: http://overpowercards.com/rules ?

Specifically, I'm wondering about this meta-rule:

"The Home Base Exception The Home Base Exception is an amendment to the Sum Deck Rule. The Home Base Exception states that a players team, for tournament deckbuilding purposes, may exceed the predetermined Point limitation if, and only if, the player is using a Home base and his team of Characters meets all of the requirements of that particular Home Base."

Question has been answered. But just to reiterate...homebases allow u to make any combination with the players on the homebase even if it exceeds the sum deck rule of 76 for normal deck building.

The tournament flyer has been updated. ***See link in the first post

Please look for the date and location details.

$3000 is a lot of money

Hey Steve,

The main idea to put up the money and to make it free for everyone is to hopefully bring out lots of people. Hopefully a few new people who maybe dont know that there are tournaments going on as well. We know there are lots of people around who used to play overpower in the past and we are wanting to get their attention.

Hoping to have lots of fun and see people come out and enjoy the event.

Zippa, do you have a full set of rules listed somewhere?

e.g. Are proxies allowed? Is "dead is dead" in effect? Can we use Masters of Evil cards?

I think proxies are ok. Dead is dead is true. Moe cards no.

Don't quote me on that though.

It's looking like my group of friends (maybe 6 of us) are going to all come.

However, a lot of them havent played in 15 years, and I dont know if we really know all the meta rules.


I need a complete list of meta and errata rules. Searching by each card code on overpower.ca doesn't really cut it.

There was a wiki but I think its dead.

I'd investigate the other way, choose a few heroes you want to play then read the meta.

But im sure you can Google it, last I saw there were many pages with the meta listed.

I will be attaching the rules shortly that will be used for the tournament. Should be a lot easier to follow. Without having to deal with the meta rules. So no worries that way. It will be pretty descriptive.

Will be great to have you and your friends out Fractales.

There is a link below to access the document for the rules for the tournament.

These are the rules that will be used with the upcoming Overpower Championships in Toronto this year. With great detail, the rules have been addressed to make the game easier to play for veterans and beginners. We want to get to the point where there is zero needed errata on any card in Overpower, and hoping to finish that completely next year. Any questions at all about the rules, feel free to contact me, they are lots of examples to eliminate confusion. These are the final rules that will be used for the tournament, and hopefully going forward with future tournaments as well. It increases fair play, and also allows for a much wider range of strategy. There should be little ambiguity which is what the game needs.
