October 2 -- $500 Beta Final -- 1 v 1 Constructed -- 10:00 am PST


In order to qualify, you have to win a 1 v 1 constructed or 1 v 1 sealed tournament starting on August 25.

Anyone with 4 tournament wins between August 25 and September 18 will receive qualify and receive 1 bye to this tournament (any type of tournaments). Anyone with 10 tournament wins will receive 2 byes. The player with the most wins will receive 4 byes. The top dollar earner will get 2 byes. The devs will get 3 byes (not that it matters as we have yet to win one of these tournaments).

Further most wins between September 26 (From and including the $150 sealed) and the tournament will get extra 2 byes. Anyone with more than 2 wins during that period will qualify and get 1 extra bye.

Finally, the top 10 1 v 1 constructed players as of Friday night qualify.

No. But getting very close.

It will be the last big cash tournament for the Beta. We may have one more smaller cash tournament.

Which $1,000 tournament are you talking about? If it was the one announced at the beginning of the Beta, it was split into a $500 sealed and a $500 constructed (which took place several months ago -- when Beta was originally supposed to end before we decided to add a bunch of features, add cards, and change the UI). P.S. Coop missions will be in soon. I think they are really fun to play with a friend.

The $1,000 post beta tournament was changed to the pro circuit with $100,000 of prizes including a world championship with $60,000 of prizes and a $30,000 first place prize. We will have more details on this soon -- though I think you can watch a draft video on youtube.

All of the bye possibilities were in the tournament announcement when the tournament was first posted.

Justice got 2 byes for having 10 wins in the first round of tournaments -- We gave 4 for most wins (JoJo), 2 for 10+ wins (Justice) and 1 for 4 wins (several).

Justice got 2 byes for most wins in second round of tournaments. He had 3. No one else had more than 1, which was interesting.

When we first announced the byes, we gave Justice 2 for being top money winner. We did not know he was going to get 4 more. In Magic and other tournament systems, the top players always get extra byes. So we followed suit. and gave him the extra byes, since he was probably going to win the first few rounds anyway (in the last $500 1 v 1 he won, he had no byes and beat 7 top people on way to finals).

We always give the devs byes in the big tournaments. Originally, the rationale for that was that I and Sal were better than most everyone else. We did not want to crush a noobe's dreams in the first few rounds. We wanted people to have more chances to win rather than losing to us round 1.

There will be no byes in the pro circuit events or other money tournaments once we go live. There will be very limtied byes in other tournaments.

I thought I could take Justice , but I couldn't. He is good. I guess I should be complaining about his byes since if he wasn't in, I would have won. Though he probably would not have lost in an earlier round anyway.

I had really tough wins over Ghry (in part becuase he missed a turn) and Jojo (in part because of a lucky fighter -- I want to watch the replay -- though I thought I played really well in the Jojo game as I was way behind and had to play perfectly for the win).

Justice and I split the prize -- $350 for winner and $150 for second.
