CALLING ALL HEXERS,

So this will be my first attempt at doing this, if you follow my YouTube channel you will know that I have been talking about this for a couple weeks now. When the Hex T-Shirts went on sale I bought 3 of them(1 for me and 2 to give away). Someone mentioned do a tournament with a different flavor. So that is what this is.

If you are not familiar with a RAINBOW style deck it's really fairly simple. Build a 60 card deck using all the color including colorless. Each color will support 6 cards or SLOTS(1-6) if you will. The Card in slot 1 must be a casting cost of 1, the card in slot 2 must be a casting cost of 2 and in slot 3, yep you guessed it casting cost of 3 so on down the line till all 6 slots are filled.

Do this will all 5 colors and the color less and you end up with a deck of 36 cards.
The rest is all resources, 4 of each color and 4 Shards of Fate for a total of 24.

The link below will describe the Rule and Format for you and show you an example of filling your slots, and also what types of cards can't be used.

Format & Rules (http://www.jakefreedom.net/documents/rainbowtournament.pdf)

I will talk more about this on on the next installment of HEX: Shards of Fate - Update Saturday.
So if you have questions or concerns, please let me know. I am not saying that I didn't forget anything. Like I said this is my first attempt at putting on a tournament.

If you would like to participate in the tournament its' free of course all you have to do is let my tournament system know who you are. You can tell him by clicking HERE (http://www.jakefreedom.net/tournament)

This should be a fun format, I am curious to see what type of deck will be boss if any really.

Tournament Begins November 10th. Sign up will end November 8th at 11:59pm. Pairings will be posted on November 9th.

PRIZES go like this
1st: HEX T-Shirt + 5 Set 1 Booster Packs(Up from 3) + 15k gold
2nd: HEX T-Shirt + 4 Set 1 Booster Packs(Update from 2) + 10k gold
3rd: 2 Set 1 Booster Pack(Up from 1) + 5k gold
4th: 2 Set 1 Booster Pack(Up from 1)

Then at random, 4 players will be selected and receive a 1 Set 1 booster pack.
Thanks again to funktion for the additional 10 packs to add to the prize pool.

I know it's not much, but it's better than a KICK IN THE TEETH.. :-)

Again, please let me know if I missed something or if you have a question.

Just to make sure I understand the rules right cards like Time Ripple and Buccaneer are allowed right?

JakeFreedom
10-29-2014, 05:05 PM
Yep, Time Ripple would go in your number 2 slot and Buccaneer would be in your number 3 slot when filling the Sapphire slots.

I see why you asked this question, when I say "You can't use cards where the casting cost is changed based on board state." meaning cards like Pterobot, it's base casting cost is 7, which doesn't fit.

The deckbuilding part is interesting... Everyone will run Battle TEch (Sapphire), Heavy Welding BOt (Colorless), Hell Hound (Ruby)... The choices are tough.

funktion
10-29-2014, 07:34 PM
Looks like fun to me!

Edit: with that said... I think having rares / legendaries enabled would make it more interesting. You can't have more than one copy of a card anyways so it's not as if having them is all that impactful towards budget minded players.

JakeFreedom
10-29-2014, 08:08 PM
This is true funktion. That is something I considered. But for the first go around, figured I would try this format and see what everyone thinks. This hopefully isn't just a one time deal and that I can hold more of these tournament. Opening up the cards to everything will certainly be an option in the future.

YourOpponent
10-30-2014, 03:23 PM
I wouldn't be against it with rares/legendaries, but when I read about the contest I was excited that it was without rares/legendaries. So oten people seem to rely on them, but this forces people to get a little more creative and see what they can do without them. For example do you go for 7/8 Shin'Haar anyway in the rainbow deck or do you decide to go with something more versatile. I was surprised that Champion abilities aren't allowed though.

The only four cards that are required for this tournament are all six cost and they are:

Captain of the Dragon Guard (Diamond)
Hellhound (Ruby)
Heavy Welding Bot (Artifact)
Elite Battle Tech (Sapphire)

Thanks for pointing out the no champ power, hadn't even noticed that and it definitely cuts down on the options even further. I am still excited about this but I am a bit concerned that having so many restrictions (to an already fairly narrow format) might turn people off.

@jake: Amy chance you'll be streaming promo / warmup matches in the next few days leading to it? I'd join in if you need an opponent

Gwaer
10-30-2014, 11:12 PM
I'd also like to point out, I run a lot of 5 color decks, and consider myself something of an expert. As written his format will have a lot of people color screwed, and probably just straight up mana screwed. It's important to run more shards in these kinds of decks, IMO I'd cut it down to required. 1-5 of all shards+colorless with 5 wild slots that can each be used for shard or a single copy of a 1-5 cost non rare/legendary that isn't already in the deck to maintain it's highlander intent. That will allow enough freedom to run multiple 1-5 cost cards in various colors, but not double up on cards.

Hadn't even thought about it, but could certainly do that. I will hit you up in game sometime.

I know the format does sound limited, but by narrowing things down there are still some really tough choices that you have to make when putting a deck together. For those who haven't tried to assemble a deck, give it a shot. The higher cost cards are easy because there are so few, but from 1 - 4, you certainly find your self asking, "Should I take this for x slot of should I use something else."

Yeah some of the 1 cost wild cards have been a pretty tough decision. Go with the 1 cost buff, cottontail ronin, Howling Brave, or Pheromones?

What day does the tournament start? I see only 6 entrants currently, is that correct. If it reaches 16 entrants I'll donate towards the prize pool to sweeten the deal.

Nvm says on the signup page that it will start nov 10. Don't see that though on the OP, you might wanna update that since it seems somewhat critical.

There's kinda a grey area, I some posts x-posted, see others closed. See some stuff like this posted in the general forums and then in other cases see it moved elsewhere.

Overall though it seems like if you're holding an event that you should put that in general forums instead.

I only found out about it because the original thread was in general this was the first time for me comming to fansite news subforum and i wasn't aware user tournament should be here as rock didn't get moved but rainbow and 10 dollar did get moved so i am not aware what's the correct place. Maybe some mod can enlighten us. :)

funktion
11-06-2014, 09:38 AM
Aye & normally when someone moves it, they also kinda stamp it. Neither of these threads were stamped. The fansite forums are kinda where threads go to die and it'd definitely be nice to keep getting some community activity with folks hosting these tournaments. It takes a lot of time to put this stuff together so the more visibility the better.

There was a total of 20 entries, that is good so there won't be any *byes* in the early rounds. Pairings have been generated and you can view them HERE (http://www.jakefreedom.net/tournament/pairings.aspx).

It is up to you and your opponent to determine the best time to play. In the future you will be able to do that on the tournament site, I just didn't have time to get that piece built. So in the mean time use this forum, in game mail or what ever method works best for you.

Also a big thanks goes out to funktion, adding an additional 10 packs to the prize pool. Much appreciated, thank you!


If you have any questions let me know here in this thread or email me jake.freedom(at)jakefreedom(dot)net

I played the format won/lost all the matches due shard screw this format is total not fun , it's all about top decking the right card at the right moment, sorry for the negative feedback but consider next time making a better format. Thank you.

YourOpponent
11-11-2014, 05:06 AM
The main thing I think a lot of people have a hard time with on Rainbow decks is they want to use Shards of Fate as soon as they can. You don't want to do that, but use it when you have to because of how many colors you're playing with in this format. For example you have shards of fate and don't have 3 of the shard colors yet (but there's 2 cards you want to use that you don't have the colors for.) You "could" go ahead and play shards of fate to use one of those cards (and risking that you're not able to use the other one for the rest of the game) or you could wait it out and be waiting to draw one of the colors you need and then use a shards of fate to pick up a different color you need.

desk
11-11-2014, 05:45 AM
I think the format is to a little to constricting and should be modified if you do it again after this tournament is over. Its setup to be very hard to get the shards or thresholds you need, and because of the deck building rules I felt my opponents deck was always going to be very similar to mine. So it came down to who got shard screwed the least. Of the three games I played so far, one was pretty close, but the other two hinged on my opponent getting shard and threshold screwed more then I did.

Ditsch
11-11-2014, 05:51 AM
True that pretty much sums up what i did experience same deck same cards it was like flipping a coin who get the least shard screwed or threshold screwed.

JakeFreedom
11-11-2014, 07:03 AM
I think this is a love it or hate it format. But I can see that in the future there will not be so many restrictions. People like options and I get that. But you never know if something is going to work until you at least try it right?

Well I hope at least everyone is having a little fun, even though.

There are still a few that haven't completed round 1 yet, once that happens I will flip the switch for the system to setup round 2.

I chose the dude that has the champ power that does Damage to target champ or troop depending on the highest cost artifact you had in play...because if I used the Squirrel dude I might accidentally use the power, but no way I'd use a champ power for something so obviously not optimal.

2 with no losses
6 with one loss

End of Round 4:
5 players remaining
1 with no losses
4 with 1 loss

(another bye in round 5 is awarded, presumably to the person with no losses since this is double elim brackets rather than swiss)
End of round 5
3 players remaining
1 with no losses
2 with one loss

(another bye in round 6 is awarded, presumably to the person with no losses since this is double elim brackets rather than swiss)
End of round 6
2 players remain
1 with no losses
1 with one loss

Finals round 7.0; which is followed by Finals 7.1 if the loser bracket player wins.
This means that the player in the winners bracket after round 4 is heavily favored to win.

I have organised to play my match at 7-8pm AEST (Australian Eastern daylight Savings Time) - Sorry for the delay! Very difficult to schedule matches as I am on the other side of the world :P

Round 5 pairings are up... http://www.jakefreedom.net/tournament/pairings.aspx


Here is how round 5 will go. There are 5 players left, the prize pool is for 1st-4th. So in order to determine 4th place, the two losers from round 5 will play each other for 4th place.

Good luck to all.

Thanks,

Hey, Light! :) I can't catch you in the game... When will you be able to play a match? My timezone is GMT+2, but I don't sleep at night these days.

Hi, I am GMT +10, I was online last night from 6pm AEST until 12pm AEST - are you able to catch me during this time period?

I take it you guys are going to need more time to complete your round given your time zones are 8 hours apart?

Thanks,

Ok so here is round 6.

Basically there is no reason to run the pairing system.

Draknos Vs. Light -- This is for 4th Place

Deathrealm Vs. eierdotter -- Loser is 3rd, winner moves to the finals.

The final round, since it's double elimination, the winner between Deathrealm and eierdotter will have to defeat hobbingen 2 times in order to win the overall tournament. If hobbingen wins just one match the tournament is over.

Please post your results below.

If you have any question please let me know.


Thanks,
Jf

Ok DeathRealm and Hobbingen for the final match.

Remember, double elimination. There is a possibility for two matches here.

Good luck!

Post the results when finished.


Thanks,

First set DeathRealm won 2:1
Second set i ended up winning 2:0
Were some good matches, unfortunatly the last one was pretty lame to him being terribly screwed^^
PS: Yay for winning the Tourney:D was a lot of fun

Congratulations Hobbingen! Those were interesting games excluding the last one xD

Thanks Jake for such an interesting tourney! It was very entertaining.
Anyway, I think this format should be modified somehow to not depend on luck so much. There were a lot of situations where a player just dindn't get right shards to play his cards for 3-5 turns or even more.

But overall it was fun. Thanks everyone and grats Hobbingen on winning one more time. :)

Congratulations! Hobbingen and to all that participated.

Yes I agree this format does need to be modified a bit and through out the tournament I received really good feedback that I will take into heavy consideration.

I am still waiting to hear the results from Draknos and Light to determine 4th place.

1st - Hobbingen
2nd - DeathRealm
3rd - Eierdotter
4th - ?


Again congrats to the top 4.

Hobbingen and Deathrealm I will be sending you an In Game email as I will need your address to send you the t-shirt.
I will also be sending out in game prizes at this time as well.


Thank You,
Jf

You would need to have 1 each of each basic resource anyway otherwise Shards of Fate wouldn't do anything (since I think it only searches for thresholds from basic resources.) Granted they could do it in a different way though but things would be awkward. Since I think there are 10 different uncommon shards 4+3+2+1 SO one of each of those + 2 of each of the basic shards + 4 Shards of Fate = 24 nice and neatly...

would have only used the uncommons, since we get 10 of them
2 each
4 depending on your dual threshold requirements
