Not the Kind of Hero you were looking for? ;-P
as it is pretty much tradition now here on PT every time a new expansion is released for the Digital Version of Star Realms we have the urge to pummel each other into tiny star dust and scrap metal.
Therefore let the carnage begin......soon!
Everyone is invited as well. So Wargamers old and new please feel free to sign up.
The new Steam Version of Star Realms should bring in a bit of fresh blood and one thing SR did really well was the implementation of "cross plattform play".
This Tourney will be 2 stage (with a group phase followed by a single elimination round) or 1 stage (double elimination for more games to play) depending on the amount of sign-ups (many -> 2 stage, few -> double elimination).
Ties will be broken up as follows in the group phase:
1: wins vs. tied player
2: points scored
(3: game/set wins)
By popular choice we will play best of three in the Knockout (Single Elimination) Round.
The game will be async with timer set to 48hr.
Registration Deadline will be Friday 22th July 22:00 CEST
The Boss-man gave us an little extra incentive with a prize for the winner. Therefore I have eased back the Deadline a bit until today evening.
Why not sooner already? As with the somewhat less frenzied activity over the last couple of months over here with the new structure I want to give people enough time to notice this new tourney.
Main Game + all Expansions purchased (Gambits, Crisis: Bases&Battleships, Crisis: Events and Crisis: Heroes)
We will play with every Expansion enabled but without the Gambits itselfs
(Promo Cards included with Gambit Expansion are still fine tough). Why no Gambits? The Gambits are not well received on a competitive setting as they warp the level starting field for players quite a bit.
I will set up a Challonge
page later for the tournament, I invite you to record your games there but records can be registered on the PT tournament thread as well and I keep updating the tournament scores on both pages regularly.
Interested parties should register here with their Star Realms Username and (if you have one) with their Challonge username
