Drakes & Dragons,

It's now time to start our 2nd internal challenge !!!

So the deadline for registration is tomorrow (Friday 3rd Nov 8:00pm GMT+0 time)... to allow us the start first games this weekend

There should be 10 or 12 players (10 registered now… and if Ahsan or someone else decide to join, then I could play to get an even number of players).

Now here are the rules :

To play several games with new members, discover and have fun with them, we decide to split this challenge in 2 stages and 2 groups.

1/ Stage 1 :

-no direct elimination,

-2 groups of 5 or 6 players (depending if 10 or 12 registered)

-mix new members in the 2 groups (i.e. no group with only “Dragons”)

-in each group, each players play a Bo3 with all their 4 or 5 opponents, (depending if 10 or 12 registered)

-no mill / no stall

-specific Heroes rule : Players MUST use a different hero in each game of same matchup (i.e. use 2 different heroes if it's ended at 2-0, and 3 different heroes if it's ended at 2-1)

Then a Ranking will classify the 2 best players in each group.

=> only the 2 best players/group will move on to next stage !

To calculate the ranking in both groups, a very simple rule will apply = 1 point per game win !

So :

-a matchup won 2-0 => 2 pts player A / 0 pt player B

-a matchup won 2-1 => 2 pts player A / 1 pt player B

Ps: for the final ranking, if 2 players have same total points amount, then the result of their matchup will decide which one is the best.

2/ Stage 2 (only for players ranked 1st and 2nd in stage 1) :

-standard popup rules with direct elimination (no mill/no stall + deck locked),

-each 4 players must send the hero they will choose to the TO (=Offspring) before the start of Stage 2,

-both players ranked n°1 will face the player ranked n°2 in the opposite group.

* Rewards from SD guild :

-750 SC for 1st

-500 SC for 2nd

-250 SC for 3rd

Have fun Dragons
