Hey guys!

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 Money Rounds.
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.

Each of the 9 masters have 5 cards assigned to them. After choosing 4 masters to play, you must construct a deck for each of them keeping in mind their assigned cards. Each deck can only be constructed using the mercenary cards* and the cards assigned to their master. You are not forced to use the 5 cards that are assigned to the master, you merely have access to them. Click this link to see a breakdown of the masters and mercenaries[docs.google.com]. Keep in mind that wild cards are banned, so you can only have one copy of each card in your deck.

*Mercenary cards are cards that are not assigned to any master.


Banning

Players will ban 2 of their opponents’ Masters each round and play a best of 3 until matches 11, 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 Master, they can not use that Master again in the same round.

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

4 Masters must be submitted along with a link to your Steam Profile link via email to KingPuffCup@gmail.com when you signup.You have until 14:00 UTC on January 18th to get your master list to us.

Finding an opponent
See from the Tournament Brackets who you are fighting.

Then if you are NOT being streamed by tournament staff, you 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.

If you ARE] being streamed by tournament staff, you and/or your opponent will be contacted by the staff and told when they are ready for you start.

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.
Rounds played and casted Live will be dealt with on a case by case basis.


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

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 kinds 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: changing deck/card/Master in a retry (after a disconnect, for example), match fixing, etc. are all considered forms of cheating.

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