    For info on the epic prizes for this event click here.

    The rules for the events are the following:

    Day 1

    The competition begins Saturday 7pm GMT November 23rd
    • The matches will be bo3, double elimination with no sideboards (deck lock) with a bo5 finals
    • Alternate who goes first in games 1 and 2. Determine who goes first in game 3 randomly (in the case of the bo5 finals, continue to alternate who goes first for games 3 and 4 and determine who goes first in game 5 randomly.)
    • Only the 16 players qualified for the WC2013 Grand Finals (listed above) may take part in this event.
    • Players must check in 1 hour before the start of the event. You will have up until 1 minute before the event starts to check in, otherwise you will be dropped from the event.
    • We recommend playing on PC as it has the most stability. In the case of a sync error, the game will be replayed unless it was clear that one player was dead (for example, the game freezes with one hero at 0 health). Again, playing on PC should avoid this particular issue.
    • In the case of a disconnection, the player that disconnects will get a game loss unless it was clear that one player was dead (for example, the turn player drops when he is about to attack to reduce the opposing hero to 0 health).
    • Send in your deck list to Mojumbo at least 5 hours before the event begins. We will be randomly checking gamelogs to make sure players aren’t trying to change their deck mid-tournament.
    • Your deck list for day 1 does not have to match your deck list for day 2.
    • The winner of this event will be entered into the Epic bo7 playoff to determine who gets the title of “Shadow Era World Champion of 2013.”

    What is double elimination?

    A double-elimination tournament is a type of elimination tournament competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament's championship upon having lost two matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination. For more information about double elimination tournaments click here (external link).

    What is a sideboard?

    A sideboard is a separate stack of cards that you use to modify your Main Deck in a match. In game 1 of each round, you must use your Main Deck and no cards from the Sideboard. You can only bring in cards from your Sideboard in the 2nd game onwards. Note that your deck must stay the same size, so you can only be replacing cards. For example, you might decide to side out Smashing Blow for Crippling Blow because your opponent is running few items and many allies. Remember though, you must always side out cards after you finish your round! It is illegal to have sideboard cards in your Main Deck for game 1 of the next round. We will be checking and reminding players to make sure they have sided out their cards between rounds. If you are found to have Sideboard cards in your deck during game 1, you will be given a game loss.

    Suggestion: IMHO, let's not have a 'may'. It's better to state all rules clearly now; ask all the questions to be asked and seal the rules.

    IMHO, if a player enters a game with less/more than the original number of cards submitted to TOs before the start of finals, auto loss for that game. The same for flouting the sideboard rules, I.e deck must be in original state in all game 1s, auto dq for that game if decklist was edited/different.

    These top 16 players are proven tenacious players with indomitable will and high level skills and intelligence: if they are careless or stupid enough not to follow simple rules, they deserve to lose that said game.

    I agree at what Raph said. This should be a high level tournament and carelessness should not be condone. Good luck to all qualified players btw

    Sorry double post, second question.

    In brackets it appears as if the winner of the winner brackets can not loose once and then replay the finale. Is this intended? Iirc the winner of winber brackets must have an advantage over the winner of loosing brackets (either can loose once and repkay the match, or start the bo5 with a 1-0 lead)

    There's no way to stop people joining without invite so Mojumbo made a placeholder. The brackets will get shuffled on the day.
