I'm pretty excited about this, I hope you are as well.
After a discussion amongst myself and Drewuniverse, we've come up with a tournament format that should be really fun and extremely competitive. Although it's been done plenty of times before, we've adapted some rules to suit the needs of Infinity Wars.
This Saturday on my stream at the usual time of 9pm IWT, we'll be doing an Exhibition match of a Team Tournament format.
The format is Teams of 3 going head to head in a gauntlet-style elimination match. Here are the rules:
*Teams will consist of 3 players, set in a specific order of Leadoff, Mid, and Anchor.
*The matches will be Best of 3, and be gauntlet progression. Meaning the Leadoff will face the Leadoff, and whichever leadoff wins will then face the Mid of the opposing team, so on so forth until an entire team has been eliminated.
*Oppression is legal for this tournament.
*Teams must have Decks pre-made and set prior to entering their elimination round. Teams may change decks between rounds, but not during a match. Meaning that the 3 players must have their decks set in stone prior to entering their gauntlet matches, they cannot change decks while the team is competing during a round.
*Rounds are Single Elimination, so once a team is knocked out they're done.
For this exhibition we've brought together 2 teams of some of the best players Infinity Wars has to offer for your viewing pleasure.
TEAM METASHIFT GAMING
Prozac, Manchy, and Adorabear
MerliniX, HeliosAFlame, and Logadd
The order the players will be playing in for their teams will not be revealed until the exhibition starts, for the sake of competition.
I'm very excited to bring this to Infinity Wars, and I hope this will ignite the competitive edge in players once we open this format up.
Stream starts at 9pm IWT, matches probably won't start until 10pm IWT.
See you there everyone! http://www.twitch.tv/infinitywarstcg
