Points

There are no kickers, just points based on position. It was going to be points per win, but a specific point system is required to be applied across all tournaments in a series, so I'm going with a more diverse point spread to reward both placing and participation.

  • 1st: 20 points
  • 2nd: 15 points
  • Top 4: 12 points
  • Top 8: 10 points
  • Top 16: 8 points
  • Top 32: 6 points
  • Top 64: 4 points
  • Top 128: 3 points
  • Top 256: 2 points
  • Top 512: 1 point

Stream

Tournaments are streamed on https://twitch.tv/ongaard so feel free to follow there for tournament streams and other content. A few other links you might want to check out as well are, and the email to contact me for any inquiries.

Also if you'd like to be featured on stream, every tournament is streamed and we'd appreciate it if some of you could share your games so we can commentate them, so hop on into the discord to meet some of the rest of the community and share some games with us.

Timeouts will be dealt with on a case by case basis, if time is called and your game is still ongoing. Play the remaining turn if a player would win that turn, if not screenshot the game state and call a judge. If both players have a feasible win condition the match will result in a tie.
