    Hey guys!

    As some people already know we are organizing a sixth King Puff Cup tournament for July and will be streaming and commentating the games! We recently updated the rules so please read them carefully and thoroughly!

    Format:
    Best of 3, and Best of 5 in the Winners Finals.
    Single Elimination. We will use a Double Elimination format if we have Less than 16 participants. Each 2v2 tournament can have a maximum of 32 participants.

    2v2 Format: Players have a completely unrestricted tournament, except for one game-changing feature, they each bring a trusted ally with them into battle!

    Note that as far as rules go, ‘participant’ applies to your whole team. So for example, if one player is unable to make it to their next match in time, the whole team forfeits as a result.

    Signup:
    EVERYONE is able to participate!
    Signing up will be done using the public bracket: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/fszah3iwes You must signup as a registered team, there is no individual registration allowed. You will also be required to ‘check in’ on Challonge before the tournament starts. Check-In will open 30 minutes before the start of the tournament. Failure to Check In will result in the tournament starting without you!
    In addition, remember to enter the ‘tournament’ room in the Minion Masters in-game chat at least 5 minutes before the tournament starts. To find the ‘tournament’ chatroom, open Minion Masters and type in chat:
    /join tournament
    It is recommended to also type ‘/leave global’ so you can focus on the tournament chat.

    Knowledge Check (For players who are playing in the King Puff Cup for the first
    time)

    We suggest new players enter chat room at least 25 minutes before the tournament starts so that TO's can check whether you are familiar with the rules. The check includes sending the TO's your partner’s name, and answering 3 questions. Please inform the Tournament Organizer of this, to ensure you are done with it well before the tournament starts.

    The Matches:
    The tournament will begin on Saturday, July 8th at 15:00 CEST. The tournament will go on until every match is played.
    Check here to find your local time:

    Match results should be emailed by one of the players] to KPCreplays@gmail.com along with the replays. Please use the following simple format to send match results:
    Billy 2 - 1 Johnny

    Replays:
    Replays have to be submitted and sent to us after each match for casting purposes and validation of outcome.
    KPCreplays@gmail.com
    To find replays: Go in game -> click on your Profile Picture -> Match Replays-> Local folder

    Finding an opponent
    See from the Tournament Brackets who you are fighting. You then have 5 minutes to start a Friendly Match with that opponent. If your opponent does not respond, contact Tournament Organizer who then also tries to contact the other player. If unsuccessful, it is considered a forfeit and you will move on to the next round. If your opponent shows up before you start your next game, he is given one last chance if he instantly starts the match with you.

    40-minute time limit
    Rounds last a maximum of 40 minutes. Tournament Organizers can give 20 minutes extra time depending on the situation. If, for example, players are just about to play their last game. If players are unable to finish all the games during this time limit and scoring is still tied, the Tournament Organizer will announce the winner according to who seems to be winning (for example health left, minions on the field, etc.) when there is overwhelming evidence pointing towards one side winning, otherwise coin toss.


    WINNING TEAM REWARD:
    The following Prize pool will be split between the two players on each team:
    • 1st place team: 3000 Rubies
    • 2nd place team: 2000 Rubies
    • 3rd place team: 1000 Rubies

    Thanks to BetaDwarf for providing the prize pool for our Unofficial tournament!

    Stream:
    The matches will be broadcasted on Sunday, July 9th at 19:00 CEST on http://twitch.tv/KingPuffCup and casted by Dipshi t and our special guest, Uncle Ownage

    • Always check before the tournament starts to see if there were updates to the rules!

    • Standard WildCard rules apply. You may use up to 3 copies of any card.

    • We take all kind of cheating very seriously. If you get caught cheating, you automatically lose and we reserve the right to ban you indefinitely from all King Puff Cups. So please play fair and read the rules carefully. Entering a tournament under two separate accounts (Person A joining as Person A and Person B) is considered cheating and may result in a permanent ban from all tournaments. The following is also considered cheating: streaming and/or sharing tournament replays, games in progress, recordings, or opponents’ decks publicly or with other participants before the tournament is completely over and a winner has been decided, changing deck/card/Master in a retry (after a disconnect, for example), etc. are all considered forms of cheating.

    • Posting about Tournaments: Please don't post discussions on the forum, chat, or otherwise regarding the metagame or decks for the upcoming tournament. Also please do not post or give away tournament decks while the tournament is still in progress. If you think that there is an overpowered card or strategy that should be banned, send them privately to the organizers who will privately discuss whether the card is really overpowered or not. Feel free to discuss these topics after the tournament is over.

    • Try to use Private Messages as much as possible, for example when organizing a
      Friendly Match with your opponent.

    • If you want to voice chat with your partner internationally for free, consider heading over to the Minion Masters Discord at https://discord.gg/qbjrFuM and inviting your partner for a private Call after they accept your Friend Request on Discord.

Ah, but it says "2v2". Can you get someone to agree to play with you? How about after they see you play?

Just to remind people that are entering: make sure you're registering your team for the tournament, not just creating a team.

Congrats to the winners. My buddy and I had a lot of fun despite our not-so-winning performance. As always, I'll look forward to the next one!
