    Shadow Era World Championship 2013 Roadmap

    Hello everybody! This post will serve as a roadmap for everything WC2013. We have a ton of events coming up in the few weeks leading up to our World Championship event so be sure to read on and learn how you can secure your very own invite to this prestigious event!

    Quick Match Playoffs (Nov 1-7)

    The first event we got coming up is our quick match playoffs. Our brand new OOPS, SamuelJ, has been getting in touch with qualified players from seasons 6 and 7 to let them know they have been invited to the playoff. The qualified players are the following:

    Season 6
    • FreeGate do
    • Slowtown
    • Garath Lee
    • Zoolgar

    Season 7
    • BP tcsnider1
    • BP Sailas
    • BP Keropok
    • BP OgAusp

    Season 8
    • Rocksolidanimal
    • Lightredsun
    • KA S vAct
    • KA UNMEINO

    The format for these playoff events will be two, 2 game matches. Both players will bring a hero and deck and play two games alternating who goes first. Then they will use a different hero and deck and play two more games (again alternating who goes first and second). Each game win will count for 1 point. Everyone in the group will play each opponent once and the player that emerges from his/her respective group with the most points from the 12 possible will be declared the winner.

    (Note: The Season 6 playoff will be played using only CotC cards as that was the format used during this particular season. Consider it Shadow Era Retro. )

    Regionals Weekend (Nov 9/10)

    Next up on our roadmap is the regionals! We will be hosting 3 separate events for 3 separate regions on this weekend:

    • Saturday 6am GMT November 9th for Oceania/Asia (Sign up here )
    • Saturday 2pm GMT November 9th Europe (Sign up here)
    • Sunday 7pm GMT November 10th for North/Central/South America (sign up here )

    Each event will be a best-of-three single elimination tournament with no sideboards. The finals will be a best-of-five. Participation for each event will be capped at 128 players. The signups for each event will open 5 days prior to the start of the event. For example, the signups for our Oceania/Asia event will start on Monday, November 4th at 6am GMT. These events are first-come, first-served and will be using a reserve list. If someone no-shows the event by not checking in on time (1 hour before the event) they will be replaced by the first name on the reserve list. Moreover, you can only enter 1 of the 3 regional events.

    Also, we are looking for TOs to help run the events so feel free to toss me a pm if you’re interested!

    (Note: This event is only eligible to players who have not already qualified for the 2013 World Championships.)

    Wildcard and Last Chance Qualifier Events

    Next up we will be doing a Wildcard and Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) events. They are slated for the following times:

    • Saturday 3pm GMT November 16th for our Wildcard event (sign up here)
    • Friday 3am GMT November 22nd for our LCQ (sign up here)

    Both events will be a single elimination tournament, with deck-lock, no sideboards, best-of-three, and a best-of-five final. The Wildcard event signups will open 48 hours before the event starts. The LCQ signups will open 24 hours before the event starts. Participation for both events will be capped at 128 players. These events are first-come, first-served and will be using a reserve list. If someone no-shows the event by not checking in on time (1 hour before the event) they will be replaced by the first name on the reserve list.

    (Note: This event is only eligible to players who have not already qualified for the 2013 World Championships.)

    The 2013 World Championship Event! (Nov 23/24)

    After our 16 players have been determined, they will play in two separate events. The first will be held on Saturday Nov 23rd and will be a double elimination event, with deck-lock, no sideboards, best-of-three, with a best-of-five final. The second event will take place on Sunday Nov 24th and will be a double elimination event, with deck-lock, a 10 card sideboard, best-of-three, with a best-of-five final. The exact start time of these 2 events is TBD.

    If the winner of the 2 events is the same person, they will be crowned the 2013 World Champion on the spot. If, however, both events have a separate winner then they will be play off in a grueling best-of-seven match with deck-lock and a 10 card sideboard. The two can bring whatever deck and sideboard they want to the best-of-seven meaning preparation will be crucial here! The exact date of this best-of-seven (if it is needed) is TBD.
