    Nachyo Average Beginner Tournament

    On behalf of the A1-Alliance, I officially announce that on Saturday, January 28th I will be sponsoring a tournament like no other. It will span only one day and will consist of ONLY our newest players. The prize? A deeply kept secret known only to my fellow A1 Members, but I will say this:

    This is the largest digital prize EVER SEEN IN SHADOW ERA.

    So how do you enter?

    -Be free from 11 A.M.-3 P.M. PST (GMT -8) January 28th.
    -Be new
    -Say your interest in the following replies
    -Show up in the IRC on game day and give me your best game!

    How will this all work?
    The tournament will be 8 Players
    These players will be hand selected by me from the applicants below
    New accounts will be provided for this tournament and removed afterwards.
    Each match will be best 2 out of 3
    The winner will continue to the next round, the loser will get props for trying.
    After 3 matches the winner will be determined and the prize announced!

    F.A.Q:
    What's the prize?
    Epic. Secret. Worth playing for!

    Why not let you use your account?
    a) Equal footing. Every player will have the same card pool to choose from. They'll have no clue what their opponent is playing. They'll have no clue during the tournament who they're actually playing!
    b) Secret challenge. Yup. The card pool is limited to a specific set, and you won't know what's in or out until the moments before the tournament!

    Why aren't the players listed yet?
    I'm manually reviewing each and every request to play, and that takes time. A list will be posted on Sunday, January 22nd with the first draft.

    What if no one shows up?
    Then no one wins. This prize is too epic to give someone who doesn't earn it. The winner of the tournament CAN NOT HAVE MORE THAN 1 "Buy". This means only one skip is allowed during the 4 matches currently planned. A consolation prize is planned for the winner if too many people bail.

    How will we meet and organize our games?
    Be in the chatroom during the hours listed, I'll handle the rest.

    What is the Reserve Bracket?
    The Reserve Bracket is a secondary tournament that will be going on simultaneously. If a player from the main tournament must drop out or leave, the player with the best wins from the reserve players will be placed into their spot.

    What are Standbys?
    Assuming we do not have enough players to make an equal bracket, a Standby Player will be activated to fill the gap.* Standbys are unlimited, so even if you’re not in the tournament yet you have a shot.

    Why wasn’t I selected?
    If you asked to join the tournament, but were not selected then it is very likely that when I reviewed the players I found something that made me feel your account was not valid.* I’m sorry, but I have to be careful.

    Couldn’t one of the players be lying?
    Yes.* I have done everything in my power to ensure that all players in the game are valid newbies, but mistakes do happen.* I’ve done my best to make the tournament block out the advantages of veteran players.* If you are a player who has entered this tournament under false pretenses please step out.
    *
    What if I know one of the players listed has a second account?
    PM me IMMEDIATELY.* I will look into it.* Please do not post it in this thread; I’ll not have flaming and insults tossed out.

    I'm selected; what now?
    I need all players to pm me the email used to activate their SE account; this will confirm your placement in the tournament.

    How new are we talking here?
    I started on the 12th or 13th, just a few days ago. Not sure if that's a good place to be, or if I'd be severely outclassed by the competition.
