Special tournament-rules for more counterbalanced gameplay:

Each player chooses two decks with fixed deck-lists to sign up for the tournament. The decks can be switched under certain conditions (loose or draw) between the rounds of a match. 

(For the detailed reglement see below, in particular Nr. 2)




Rules and Standards


1. General. Best of three. Random starts at game one and three.


2. Deck-Choices: At the beginning of a match each player chooses one of his signed up decks. After each round the loser may change to his second deck – provided that the player wishes so.


e.g.: Cathleen signed up with Lance [deck a)] and Victor Heartstriker [deck b)]; Paul signed up with Majiya [deck a)] and Moonstalker [deck b)].

Round one: Cathleen chooses deck a); Paul chooses deck a). Cathleen wins. Now Paul has the opportunity to change to deck b) for round two; Cathleen has to stick with deck a).


Round two: Cathleen has to play deck a); Paul switched to deck b). Paul wins. Now Cathleen has the opportunity to change to deck b) for round three; Paul has to stick with deck b).


Round three: Cathleen decides to keep at deck a); Paul has to play deck b).


3. Draws: Draws are counted as a win for each party. After a draw each player may choose to change to his second deck. 

After a second draw [result would be 2:2] there will be a third game. After three draws in a row the winner is chosen by lot.


4. Disconnection during a game: If a player is disconnected during a game, the victory goes to the other player unless both players agree to replay or a player concedes.


5. Reporting results: Match results must be reported in the tournament Telegram channel. The tournament-organizer will upload the results on the tournament-website on


6. Getting a BYE: If there are players who get a BYE, they need to send a personal message to the tournament-organizer on Telegram before round one starts.


7. Bugs: If there is a bug in the game, the game must be restarted unless both players agree to continue. Repeating bugs for the third time will result in a loss for the player, which the bug originated from.


8. Showing up late: If a participant fails to show up to the first match 10 minutes after the popup has started, he gets disqualified. 

In other cases a participant shows up late for a match the tournament-organizer can utter a warning for misconduct (for more see below, Nr. 10).

Exceptions can be made if the tournament-organizer gets informed beforehand.


9. Pauses: The tournament-organizer can decide to pause the tournament in order that players can take refreshments, use the toilette, to settle a difference between players or for other exigency. The reasons for the break will be conveyed on Telegram.


10. Warnings and Disqualifications for Misconduct

The tournament-organizer can be utter warnings for misconduct. Cases of misconduct are in particular:

- Showing up late for a game

- Insulting another player or other cases of rude remarks

- Unreliability relating to communication that is inevitable for the tournaments well-ordered process

- Failing to follow instructions of the tournament-organization for repeating times.


After three warnings the tournament-organizer can disqualify a player for further misconduct.

A player can be disqualified in the following cases of misconduct:

- Contravening the regulations of deck-constructing (e.g.: use of banned cards)

- Using a deck that was not signed up for the tournament or alter a deck during the tournament

- Showing up late to a match for more than 10 minutes


According to his best judgement the tournament-organizer can desist from disqualifying a player if there are moderate alternatives to compensate the misconduct. 


11. Obligation for Disclosing Decklists: In cases of reasonable suspicion of misconduct a player can be requested to disclose the card-lists of the signed up decks. Counteractions can be entailed warnings or disqualification.
