Conquest Tournament [Saturday, December 16th] Over $200 Prize Pool - King Puff Cup
Hey guys!

Please read the rules carefully and thoroughly.

The above imgur album contains the current standings for the 2nd King Puff Circuit. Towards the end of February, we will be inviting the top 16 players of the Circuit to the King Puff Invitational where they will compete for a cash prize. The more players that enter, the more points this tournament will be worth. Every won round earns points. The farther into the tournament that win is, the more points it is worth.

Format:
Best of 3, and Best of 5 in the Semi Finals and Grand Finals.
Tournament will be in two stages: Group and Final.
Group Stage:
Single Elimination format capped at 128 players. All matches will be best of 3. Seeding will be based on previous tournament performance or rough ladder ranking.
Final Stage:
The 8 players that make it through the Group Stage will then play through the Final Stage in Double Elimination format. Seeding will be based on group.

Banning
Players will ban 2 of their opponents decks each round and play a best of 3 until matches 12, 13, 14, and 15 of the main stage, where they will only ban 1 deck and play a best of 5.
If a player wins with a deck, they can not use that deck again in the same round.

Banning will take place as follows:
Highest Seed Bans 1 deck, lowest seed bans 2 times, highest seed bans 1 more (their 2nd ban)

Note: Your opponents will only see what Masters you chose, not any of the cards.

Deck Submission Sign-up:
4 decks must be submitted along with a link to your Steam Profile via email to KingPuffCup@gmail.com when you signup.
Each deck must have a different master.
No deck can share more than 4 cards with any other deck. No Wild Cards are allowed.


EVERYONE is able to participate! Sign yourself up here[challonge.com] after you submit your decks. Please ensure your Challonge and Steam accounts use the same name. Failure to do so may lead to disqualification from the tournament. Reminder that you can assign a nickname to yourself when signing up in challonge if your default name is different from steam.

Note: You have until 24 hours before the tournament starts to signup. After that point we are not accepting new signups and you can not change your decks / Masters.

Finally, enter the ‘tournament’ room in the Minion Masters in-game chat at least 30 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 the chat room at least 30 minutes before the tournament starts so that Mods can check whether you are familiar with the rules. The check includes sending the Mods a legal deck of the tournament, and answering 3 questions. Please inform the Moderator you require a check, to ensure you are done with it well before the tournament starts.

The Matches:
The tournament will begin on Saturday, December 16th at 14:00 UTC. The tournament will go on until every match is played. Best of 3 matches except for Best of 5 during the Grand Finals.

Match results should be emailed by the winner 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 ingame -> 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 a Moderator 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. Moderators 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 Moderator 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.
Grand Finals gets a maximum of 60 minutes instead of 40.


WINNERS REWARDS:
The following cash prize will be sent to the top 4 players of the tournament via Paypal:
  • 1st place: $100
  • 2nd place: $60
  • 3rd place: $40
  • 4th place: $25

FAQ and other rules:
  • Disconnects: The first disconnect will be replayed. After a second disconnect without proof of the opponent disconnecting as well, the disconnected player forfeits the current game.

  • Replays: Find your replays -> Go in game -> click on your Profile Picture -> Match Replays -> Local folder
    Send em via E-Mail as an attachment or upload them on filedropper and email us the link. Email replays to KPCReplays@GMail.com

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

  • WildCards are NOT ALLOWED. You may NOT have a 2nd or 3rd copy of any card in your deck.

  • An automatic loss is awarded to anyone who uses an illegal deck, regardless of the outcome of the game. This only applies to the game where the illegal deck was used.

  • 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 to the Tournament Admins 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.

Just for a spot of clarity on the 4 shared cards. I'll give you guys an example.
Deck A: http://mm.item-set.com/#!/?deck=Njl8MTM2fDN8MzV8MTE4fDEwfDE3fDM3fDF8MTg%3D&master=settsu
Deck B: http://mm.item-set.com/#!/?deck=Njl8Nzd8MzV8MjZ8MTZ8MTEyfDQ4fDM3fDF8ODQ%3D&master=mordar
Deck C: http://mm.item-set.com/#!/?deck=NTV8NDB8Mjd8OHwxMXwxNTZ8N3wzNXwxMTN8MTU%3D&master=ratbo
Deck D: http://mm.item-set.com/#!/?deck=NTV8Mjd8Njl8Njh8ODZ8M3w0NXwxMHwzN3wzNg%3D%3D&master=volco

Deck A shares 4 cards with Deck B, 1 card with Deck C, and 4 cards with Deck D.
Deck B shares 1 card with Deck C and 2 cards with Deck D.
Deck C shares 2 cards with Deck D.
No deck uses wild cards and every deck has a different master.
These would make for a LEGIT deck submission.

A failed submission would be if any one deck shared more than 4 cards with any other deck. So if we replaced Deck B's Annihilator with a Fireball, then Decks A and B would share 5 cards and would then would no longer be a legitimate submission.

If you want us to check for you just email KingPuffCup@gmail.com (the same email you'll sign up through anyway)

Do note that balance changes are coming in just a few hours from this post. We will accept all signups until 24 hours before the tournament starts, so signup by Friday 14:00 UTC. Which also happens to be when KPC will start hosting a Round Table on our twitch channel featuring top players discussing the latest changes and their impact on the meta.

For the record, the new cards added with the latest patch are banned from this tournament. Magma Turret is the last card that is allowed in terms of new cards.
ecke Dec 14, 2017 @ 11:15pm 
So all cards that received changes are banned?

No, those cards are all allowed. Only the 3rd and 4th (not yet fully announced) cards received through the event's presents are banned. This is due to their extremely limited availability at the moment.
Any card you can currently craft without receiving it through an event is allowed. Magma Cannon is currently craftable, and is allowed as a direct result.

If you found that confusing...
Right now all the cards in my spreadsheet are allowed. Any card not found in my spreadsheet is not allowed.
