Tournaments can be a fun and efficient way to quickly test deck ideas against multiple players; you may even face an opponent with a similar deck and share your ideas. Itís a great way to make new friends and win some prizes at the same time.

Thrilled to actually see how far my deck's are gonna come.

Edit: As you asked, for feedback. i will just list it all in this post everytime if have something to add.

Firstly its awesome, not buggy at all, and a lot of fun.

That said. This is what i found.
- Would be cool to have a chat dedicated to the tournament
- Between matches you really can not do anything. would be cool to still look at your deck, chat with the other players in the tournament, or spectate other games.
- Most counter cards disappear from deck after saving and going back to deckbuilder.
- A player quitting the client bugs up the next game for the opponent.
- to be continued.

When you call in the reserves, you call in the reinforcements, so your reinforcing your deck?

im wondering, can tournaments actually finish? its my second attempt and they never pass the first stage... i am stuck at looking the tournament lobby waiting for my second opponent to pop up while another game is allways stuck in the "progress" phase... i quitted the first one and i decided to wait in the second one just to see if its a bug or its working as intended.. its like 40 mins now XD

- a indicator if a game is bugged/in progress would be nice in the lobby (currently you have to ask every other bracket if their game was bugged or is still in progress)
- addition of a Tournament Chat-tab
- Gems changeable during the Reserve-ing... whyle sideboarding
- addition of 2-man tournament challenge would be awesome (looks like not much work to code, from a clueless persons POV)
- in deckbuilder, changing cards from deck to reserve more user-friendly (not very important)
- show who was the winner in the top of the lobby, maybe add a whisper too after it ended and send it to the 8 players something like: "From Tournament: Player -Winkeepdition- claims victory in tournament #1337!"
- waiting for the next opponent is boring... enable deckbuilder with a announcement etc. (current workaround, play control and not aggro!)
- for the near future, add a quick tournament format that favors aggro decks/quick playerdecisions due to only 15minute timers.

Bugged Stuff:
- Chat Friendslist is out of place in the lobby (or at least for me)
- Reverse changes after the last match get saved, so your original maindeck is altered in the deckbuilder and future games.
- If someone gets the coinflip bug, 8 people are screwed.
- For some reason some people do not get the (eliminated) after their name on the left side (for example i have won 2 rounds and wait for my final opponent to win his round2, while there should be 5 eliminated, i see only 3)
- Deck selection is scaled super big, can only choose from 12 decks (ordered by time of creation)
