    Hex Rock League: Season 5

    Official website http://www.hexrockleague.com/



    When? Starts Monday August 10th - 0.01AM GMT (Runs 4 weeks)
    Sign ups until? Sign up stays open, even when the league has already started. The more, the merrier.
    Who? Everyone is allowed to enter.
    Entrance fee? Free

    What is that ‘Rock format’ you're talking about?
    Rock is a constructed format that follows normal construction rules (60 card deck, a maximum 4 of each card, etc.) but also restricts players by only allowing common cards and a maximum of 4 uncommon cards. (So no rare or legendary cards.) Please note that there is a separate banlist for this format (see below)

    Note that if you play with reserves you, the number of uncommons allowed across your maindeck and reserves is till 4.

    The term ‘Rock’ was chosen because they're basically worthless compared to gems/shards.

    How does the League work?
    Every week you're allowed to play a maximum of 3 league matches for points. You may challenge anyone as long as they are signed up for the league. You can only play the same person once every two weeks. Matches are best of 3. A win will earn you 3 points, a loss will earn you 1 point. At the end of the season (4 weeks) the people with most points will be awarded some prizes (see below).

    Playing more than the maximum allowed matches (3), you will earn tiebreaker points. Each win after the first 3 games will award you 1 tiebreaker point.

    Again, you are free to play with anyone you want. Contact people on this list through the forum or just ask around in the chat if someone wants to play you for league points. If they have not signed up yet, have them post in this topic before you start the game. Afterwards you both have to post the result here.

    Once you found a person to play add each other as friend and use the "challenge friend" feature to play a best-of-three match.

    How do I report my games?
    We advice that you report your games by posting a screenshot of the final result screen after the match has finished. You can upload any images by using a service like imgur. Only you or your opponent has to do this.

    If you can't post this, please post the result as plain text and ask your opponent to do the same to confirm the result.

    Deck choice
    You are free to change your decks in between matches (not in between games!). It would be nice if you let us know which deck you played when you post your result, but that is not required. This way we can see what the meta is like.

    Banlist
    For the current season there will be no bans!

    1st place
    5x Set 1 booster

    1x 5 Set 1 Boosters + 5 Set Boosters

    The Diversity Challenge - Armies Edition
    Only games that count for points will count for the diversity challenge. To be eligible for this prize you have to play with at least 4 different Armies of Myth champions in your games for points. Please make sure to report the champion you played with when reporting your score.

    1x Set 1 Primal Pack

    Door prize

    10x 1 Set 3 Booster

    Donations
    If you want to donate to the prize pool, you’re very welcome to do so. You can either send them directly to our in-game account (RockLeague) or contact me directly on this forum with a PM. Donations will go only to the prize pool and I will try to give out as many prizes to as many people as possible. Note that your donation might go to another season than the current.

    Rules (recap)
    - 60 cards decks with 15 card reserves. Only commons and a maximum of 4 uncommons across both the deck and reserves. (So no rare or legendary cards)
    - All games will be done through the in-game "challenge friend" feature for a best-of-3 match.
    - You can only play the same person once every two weeks.
    - The winner or loser (preferable the former) has to report the game by posting a screenshot of the final result screen. Alternatively both winner and loser can report the result of the game without a screenshot in this thread.
    - The first 3 games each week earn you points
    - You are allowed to play more games than the allowed maximum. Playing more than 3 games will award tiebreaker points.
    - Please refrain from trying to play against certain decks or trying to avoid to play against certain decks. Deck and Champion choice should stay secret until the first game starts.

    Ok. Sweet. How do I signup?
    Please respond to this topic with your in-game name. Thank you!
    Please note: If you played during Season 1, 2, 3 or 4, you do not have to sign up again!

    May I make a suggestion that a custom channel be created for the purpose of finding matches?

    Say HexRockLeague or something.

    Would make it easier to find people who want to play since they'll be checking that channel anyway and keep spam off the general chat.

    Thoughts?

    I second this idea, as finding a match has been a struggle for me at times. If it's something that was put the initial post/write up, I think everyone would hopefully see it, and many more matches could be had. It's a pain in the general chat when you're trying to find a game there's a conversation going on that pushes your game request out of visibility quickly.
