TPDC Season 17

TPDC is FREE to enter, open to all, playing Classic Pauper with the built-in filter. Newcomers are always welcome.

WHEN:
Registration officially opens at 7:30 EST, closing promptly at 8pm EST. Matches start shortly after.

REGISTRATION:
To register, log in to Gatherling and look for this event under the "PREREGISTER FOR EVENTS" section of the Player CP. Registration should be open no later than 7:30 EST. Gatherling will immediately confirm for you if you are registered. Do not be late however, it closes promptly at 8. If you think you may be late, check the site early to see if registration is open. Or try to contact the host.

In game, type "/join TPDC" in any MTGO window. It will open up the TPDC chatroom where you can see announcements and chat with other players. Then also /join TPDCcom, which is where you will post the results of each match.

DECK CONSTRUCTION
TPDC uses the built-in filter with no changes. If MTGO says your deck is Pauper legal, then it's TPDC legal.

(See season schedule below for exceptions to the regular format or schedule.)

PRIZES
Top 4: The top 4 players receive gift certificates from MTGOTraders.com which may be used at your convenience. (In appreciation we encourage everyone to consider MTGOTraders whenever buying singles, and to put "TPDC" in the shopping card field for "how did you hear about us?")
  1. 7 credits
  2. 4 credits
  3. 2 credits
  4. 2 credits
(Players in the top 4 must ensure the host has their email in order to receive their MTGOTraders gift certificate.)

5th - 8th: Players finishing 5-8 will be awarded cards from the host's supply (subject to availability).

Door prize: The host may award a door prize to a random participant who plays through all swiss rounds but didn't make the top 8 cut.

Donations for 5-8 and door prize are always appreciated, as is contributing to larger prize pools for Season Championships. Please PM your host if you have something you wish to contribute.

Event Structure
  • 8-15 players: 3 rounds of Swiss with a top 4
  • 17-23 players: 3 rounds of Swiss with a top 8
  • 24-39 players: 4 rounds of Swiss with a top 8
  • 40+ players: 5 rounds of Swiss with a top 8
(In the event of fewer than 8 participants, the host reserves the right to cancel the tournament. This almost never happens.)

Additionally, TPDC matches have the following rules:

  • Pairings will be posted in the event thread, as well as announced in the TPDC channel.
  • Tables are created in the Casual Play -> Anything Goes room. Either player in the pairing can make the table.
  • Tables must be made using the Pauper filter, "best 2 out of 3", Watchable, and labeled "TPDC Round #".
  • If your opponent doesn't join your table, PM them after 2 minutes and PM the host after 5. For a 4-round tournament, a game loss is given after 10 minutes and a match loss after 20. For a 5-round tournament, match loss is given after 10 minutes of no-show.
  • The deck used for round 1 must be used for the entire tournament. Modifications can result in disqualification and banning.
  • After each round, results must be reported in the TPDCcom channel like "W2-1" or "L0-2". Also because of the Swiss structure, anyone dropping from the tournament must report "drop" in TPDCcom or face warnings and suspension.
  • Chatting in the TPDC channel is welcome except when the host is making announcements. However, please don't talk or ask questions in TPDCcom. It is only for reporting drops and results.
  • All players are expected to post their decklist to Gatherling. This can be done during the tournament or afterward, but players not entering decklists may be denied invitations to the end-of-season championships.
  • Bad sportsmanship or other rules violations may result in match loss, disqualification, suspension, or banning. Offense and punishment will be decided at the host's discretion.

Season Points and Standings

Players will be awarded the following points for event attendance and performance:

  • Match Win: 3 points
  • Attending an Event: 2 points
  • Top 8 Appearance: 1 point

(Players who fail to post their decklist will receive no points for that event.)

Top finishers for the season will be invited to the season championship event. The cutoff will be determined 2 weeks before season end, targeting approximately the top 25% of participants. (In the past this has been around 32 invites). Additionally, the Last Chance Qualifier held the week before Championships will award a Champs invitation to anyone in the top 4 not already invited.

Sure thing, you're registered. (I also opened up reg to everyone as of right now via Gatherling, if anyone else wants an early jump.)

A format has been chosen for the first Alt night of the season (next week, Nov 22). It is Dakkon Vanguard, a format that uses the Dakkon Blackblade avatar to let you play without lands in your deck. If you don't have the avatar yet, MTGOTraders has it for as low as $0.08.

Make sure you read through the first post in this thread, it has most of the details you'll need.

To join the tournament's chat room you can just type "/join TPDC" in any window in MTGO. If you're close to tournament time, others will be there too. (And you can /join PDC at any time to look for other Pauper players, outside of any tournament.)

Any room. Any place you can type. Play room, trade room, clan window, chat with another person. Game log. Anywhere.

You should also be in the Anything Goes room, but as long as you /join TPDC from somewhere you can get the rest of the instructions there.

Announcement: Dabil will be taking over for me in managing TPDC. As the man in charge of schedule publishing, alternate formats, host selection, and other tournament rules, he's the one to talk to now for any concerns. Congrats to Dabil and I'm sure the series will be well-cared-for in his hands.

So we pulled together an impromptu event last night with none of the normal runners of events. It was said over and over that it wasnt an official TPDC event. I wake up this morning and everythings uploaded to gatherling. WtF? The only folks who knew about this happening where those that came to /join tpdc by chance or clanmates. Nothing was posted here or in the wizards forums.
