This Shadow Gaming event will be held using Free-for-All rules with a single master ban, and will run as a double elimination tournament. Matches will be Best of 3, except for the Winner's Bracket, Loser's Bracket, and Grand Finals matches, which will be Best of 5, and the Grand Finals will have a reset option.
Just like in normal ranked mode, you may queue any Deck (master/cards) you choose in each of the games for the series; your opponent has no idea what you're playing! However, the following cards are BANNED for this event: Bridge Shrine
Single Master Ban: each match, the competitors may elect to ban one master, and their opponent will not be allowed to play as the banned Master for any game of that match.
Double Elimination: Your first match loss does not eliminate you from the event. You are only eliminated if you lose 2 matches, so you could come back to win the whole event even if do lose one match during the event!
Grand Finals Reset option: A player must lose twice to be eliminated. Therefore, if the winner of the Winner's Bracket match loses the Grand Finals Match, the Grand Finals will reset, and the two finalists will play a second best of 5 series to determine the winner.
Each time you are paired against your next opponent, you should reach out the opponent on discord via DM and attempt to arrange joining a 1v1 lobby against them, in order to play your match. If your opponent appears to be non-responsive after 1 minute, ping them and the tournament staff with a post in the discord channel alerting everyone that the opponent appears tardy. If your opponent does not respond/report in for the match within 5 minutes, ping them and tournament staff again and the tardy player will be issued a game loss. If 10 minutes goes by with no response, ping them and the tournament staff again, and the tardy player will be issued a match loss.
If there is a disconnection during a match game, the disconnected player should rejoin the game as quickly as possible and keep playing the game. The game usually should NOT be restarted (unless in special circumstances adjudicated differently, at the sole discretion of the Tournament Staff. )
ALL DECISIONS BY SHADOW GAMING, OR THE HEAD TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS EVENT (SINOBII) ARE FINAL.
