Well, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the official opening of the first Top Tier Tactics Magic 2014 tournament!
This month’s tournament will be for Steam/PC players using preconstructed decks. We floated the option of a Sealed Deck tournament, but recent developments in booster pack hacking have steered us away from this course of action.
Instead, players will be squaring off with one of Magic 2014’s ten existing decks. At the end of the day, we’ll find out which piles (and players) truly deserve to be known as Top Tier.
Best of all, this month’s winners will receive a mix of both Magic 2014 and E3-exclusive prizes. Some of this stuff simply can’t be bought in stores – our oh-so-skilled victors will have their pick of the loot. But hey, not everyone can win… we’re looking forward to seeing some fierce competition from everyone!
Read the rules (no seriously, read them or you will be disqualified) below and sign up. Brackets will be assigned after next week. May all your topdecks be miracles!
PC Tournament Registration
In order to register for our August Magic 2014 DOTP tournament, you must do the following by August 2, 2014:
- Comment below with your unique Steam username and the deck you will use
- We will be contacting you via e-mail, so comment with a valid, actvie address
- Join the Top Tier Tactics Steam Community Group
Do not comment on this article for purposes other than tournament entry. If you are not available to play Magic 2014 in August, do not register for this tournament.
The T3 Steam Group will allow us to more easily pair players and get in touch with everyone faster. Tournament registration will be limited to 96 players. Participation will be decided on a first-come-first-served basis.
This is a single elimination tournament. Each time you are assigned to your opponent, you must complete a first-to-three-wins series (best of five) within 72 hours of bracket assignments. For each bracket, one player must report a loss; if neither does, both players are disqualified (feel free to record/screenshot/photo your win). If a series ends in a tie, tie-breaker matches must be played until a winner is decided.
You may only play with the deck named in your entry comment. Sideboarding within a series is permitted.
