We have had it up on FiveShards for a few days now, but I wanted to cross-post the details here for maximum visibility.

We are pleased to share with you the details of the FiveShards Ruby Cup, Season 3!

On February 13th, 9:00am PST (World Clock (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Ruby+Cup%2C+Season+3%21&iso=20160213T09&p1=137)), the greatest Entrathian shard-slingers will compete for a chance to take home the coveted Ruby Cup (thanks to an ample supply of boosters from Hex Entertainment); this is the third cup in the third season of the FiveShards Shard Cup Serie (http://fiveshards.com/the-shard-cup/)s.

The Ruby Cup is standard constructed; all current PVP sets are legal and any current cards banned for competitive PVP are also banned for the tournament.

To register, sign up for free in-client on the tournament that says "Community Tournament" (or it may say "FiveShards Ruby Cup") within the client on the tournament page. That's right, this tournament is organized in-client! The tournament will be Swiss followed by a cut to the top 8.

Prizes

1st: 48 Set 3 Packs
2nd: 32 Set 3 Packs
3rd-4th: 16 Set 3 Packs
5th-8th: 10 Set 3 Packs
9th: 8 Set 3 Packs
10th-16th: 6 Set 3 Packs
17th-32nd: 3 Set 3 Packs

Random Door Prizes

Dust Pack: 1x Promo Dust, 3x Rare Dust, 1x Uncommon Dust
4x Set 2 Packs
3x Set 1 Packs
5x Set 3 Packs
5x Set 3 Packs

Streamer Prizes

To encourage streaming of the tournament, we are going to do a few drawings for every streamer we put on the main channel. Each streamer can only get on the list once; so, if you stream and we feature you, you may get a nice after-tournament bonus!

5x Set 3 Packs
5x Set 3 Packs
5x Set 3 Packs
5x Set 3 Packs

We will be drawing the door prizes at the conclusion of round 2 for all players who remain in the tournament. To be eligible for Door prizes, the client must not have said you dropped in round 1 or 2.

The FiveShards account will send out prizes after the tournament concludes.

Cup Points

1st: 15 points
2nd: 13 points
3rd/4th: 11 points
5th-8th: 9 points
9th: 8 points
10th-16th: 6 points
17th-32nd: 4 points
33rd-64th: 2 points
65th or higher: 1 point
Specific Rules

Since this is in-client, our rule set is much smaller this time around.

Feature Match Policy: If you are playing in the Ruby Cup and are streaming, we take that as consent that you are willing to allow us to use your stream as a feature match on the main channel (twitch.tv/fiveshards). If, however, you would not like us to do this, please let us know as soon as possible and we will not host your stream.

Is there any chance this isn't going to be a total Kranokfest?

Ya, the "Kranok 17 (37.8%)" on the overview and the results Weekly Finale got me thinking Kranok reached pre-hp nerf Titania level of dominance.

Of note to all competitors, there is a persistent, random bug that may cause you to skip the first turn of a match. (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=47543)

Went 3-3 and then dropped since I'm pretty much out of top 32 at that point. I had a lot of fun though, and 1 of those wins was a featured match. Good day.

Happy we have some of these free to enter community tournaments. It gives relatively inexperienced constructed players like me a place to get some experience without a cost barrier that could turn some away.

I went loss-loss-win-loss then four wins, ended up 31st, so you wasn't completely out of top 32.
