Rules

Full rules for each game will be added as the event draws near.

SOULCALIBUR VI

Hearthstone

This will be a Conquest tournament using the swiss format. Players will bring 4 decks from different classes, one of which will be banned by your opponent before the match begins.

You may not have more than one deck of a particular class in your deck selection screen. If you are caught with two decks from the same class, you will be issued a 1 game loss. Note that this only applies to classes you registered for in the tournament.

For example, if your registered classes are Mage, Hunter, Warlock, and Shaman, you are not allowed to have two Warlock decks. However, you can have as many Warrior decks as you wish.

Disconnects: If you experience a player disconnecting from a match, you must IMMEDIATELY contact a tournament administrator. All attempts must be made to reconnect and finish the game. If reconnecting is impossible, either a game win or a rematch will be played at the sole discretion of the tournament organizer. All decisions are final.

If a player queues a deck that they have already won with in the current match, they will be issued a one game loss, no exceptions.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure you take a screen shot of every game result (win or loss), as well as proof of any issues (such as your opponent queueing an illegal deck). These will be important for settling disputes between players during the event.

All tournaments and prizes are subject to change and cancellation at the sole discretion of the organizer and Grand Ole Gameroom Expo. We will make every effort to ensure tournaments continue as described however, in cases of lack of signups, insufficient resources or other factors out of our control tournaments may need to be adjusted. If a tournament is modified or canceled a full refund will be offered to anyone who has signed up.
