There was some trouble near the end with the brackets (and it got a little chaotic :P ) but I've learned much, and promise no troubles next time. I underestimated the swiss system. Sorry for all the trouble people!

The Pineapple Cup! (2)
Image
Yes, the pineapple is just from Google Images



The previous cup was huge success with 41 players registered! This time around, there will be a few differences though...

When?
14th of March (Saturday)
19.00 GMT

Entry?
FREE! However, it is optional to pay for special bonuses ;)
You get the bonus if you pay a minimum (so for 5000g, you get a Bye and a green color!)
All donations go directly to the prizepool!
  • 1000g Your name in a wonderful green color in the playerlist
  • 5000g You get a Bye (free win) in the first round
  • 10 000g Your name in a amazing orange color in the playerlist!
  • 20 000g I'll add a text of your choice next to your name in the playerlist

Registration?
This time, I'll not use a Google Survey. Just post down below! That way, everyone can immediately see how many players are participating! (I'll still update this post though)

I'll not accept anymore registrations 1 hour before the tournament (18.00 GMT)
EDIT:
To allow last minute registrations, I'm moving the end of registration to the start time (19.00 GMT). I expect the first round to start at 19.15 GMT.

Rules?
With the huge success of the Swiss format in the Oum Lasa Open tournament of GuidoFubini, the Pineapple Cup will this time make use of the Swiss format too instead of the previous Single Elimination format!

What's Swiss? Well you know that moment when you're out of the tournament just because you faced a good player in the first round? No problem! You stay in the tournament till the end and you'll play vs other Scrolldiers with the same amount of wins each time.

After all the rounds, the top 16 players (I expect there to be enough :P ) will face off in a Single Elimination format, best of 3. This will probably not be on the same day as the tournament, depending on the number of rounds necessary.

Speaking of rounds, I expect for each round to last 35 minutes. Draws aren't fun, and I hope it won't be necessary to give them, but in extreme cases I'll ask the players to stop their match.

Decklists will not be necessary this time around, and you're free to change your deck during the tournament.

EDIT:
If you to want quit any time during the tournament, just whisper me "drop" or something similar and I will drop you from the brackets. This is to avoid unnecessary byes.

Prizes?
Prizes will consist fully of donations! And as always: honor!
Current Prizepool: 1k gold per participant or 40k (which ever is greater) + 20 401g
1st (and 2nd place if at least 32 people show up) also get these amazing heads!
Image
  • 1st place 23% of pool, Tier 3 of choice and Tournament Head
  • 2nd place 17% of pool, Tier 2 of choice (and Tournament Head if at least 32 people show up)
  • 3rd place 12% of pool and Tier 1 of choice
  • 4th place 8% of pool
  • 5-8th place 3% of pool each
  • 9-16th place 2% of pool each

Chat?
The room "Pineapple" will be used again for the tournament. All announcements will be made there. And while chatting is really annoying for me, it is allowed! ...unless I say "Announcement incoming!" or "Silence!"

If you've won/lost a match, just whisper me! I most likely will not be looking in the chatroom.

Why "pineapple"?
Because...

No, I think what he is trying to tell us is that he is selling a pineapple. This should be moved to 'Trading' topic ;)

I spectated last tournament and was kicking myself for not signing up.

And now I can't even sign up because the 14th is the birthday of my brother :(
Sadness is on the stack...
