    Post New Feature: Tournament System



    One feature that everyone is excited about is the automated tournament system. Today we'll take a look at the basic functionality and open it up for more discussion, feedback, and questions.

    Feature Overview


    The automated tournament system will allow players to create and join popup tournaments. Drafts, meltdown, and constructed tournaments are supported with either 4 or 8 players.

    Entry Fees


    • 700 shadow crystals for drafts (6 packs)
    • 500 shadow crystals for meltdown (4 packs)
    • 100 shadow crystals for constructed (they use their own cards)


    The entry fee is taken from each player as soon as the tournament starts. Players can join and leave a tournament before it starts without paying a fee. Before the start of the first game, after drafting or opening the meltdown packs, the player will have those cards permanently added to their library.

    Rewards

    8 player tournament: 1st place = 500 shadow crystals. 2nd place = 200 shadow crystals.
    4 player tournament: 1st place = 250 shadow crystals. 2nd place = 100 shadow crystals.
    The rewards will be automatically given to the player at the end of their final match.

    Time Limits

    Meltdown: 5 minutes to create a deck.
    Draft: 35 seconds to choose a card, decreasing by 2s each card from that pack to a minimum of 10s. So when the player is picking their 5th card from a pack, they have 35 - 4*2s = 27s. And then 3 minutes for deck building.

    Other Features

    A tournament room chat box will allow players to communicate with each other and give tournament progress updates.
    Players are free to leave the tournament screen while they are waiting for the next game to start. A popup message will alert them when their opponent is ready, and they will have 2 minutes to start their next match.
    Observers can view the tournament in progress and watch live games or replay previous matches.

    Where We Are

    As we demonstrated in a recent weekly live stream, the basic functionality of the automated tournament system is already complete and working well.

    What's Left To Do

    Integration of the tournament system into the live server was mostly waiting on the new networking framework to be completed for more stable connections. We also need to update it with the concept of owning unopened booster packs, and accepting event tickets for payment. The tournament GUI also needs to be improved and integrated into the challenge screen better.

    How You Can Help

    We really need everyone's help to spread the word about our Kickstarter! If you like the game and want to see more great features added, then be sure to tell your friends, share on social media, and get involved in the community!

    Kyle 1-0 Millstalker

    Is this somehow a symbolism? Lol jk. I'm overthinking this. =P

    Overall I'm excited for this feature. I really hope we meet the Kickstarter goal

    How come the chat below says that Kyle has defeated Millstalker, but the bracket still just shows Kyle 1-0 Millstalker? lol.

    But seriously, this does look great. Liked how it looked and worked when shown on the stream, and really exited to see this go live. Also like how for the meltdown and draft formats you actually get to keep the cards.

    Some suggestion:
    1. I hope every players get 10 free event ticket (or more) when this feature get LIVE at main server.
    2. Free constructed tournament for some limited time with no prize in order to test it in case some bug still occur

    So, crystal grinding only feasible at constructed tournament
    3. Pls make a meltdown/booster draft tournament that using phantom card (players dont keep the cards used on the tourney), with the same fee-prize schema as constructed.
