Standard format
Pokémon TCG Live

Welcome to the return of Absolem TCG - Series 1 tournaments!

We are Arne and Sofie, brother & sister from Belgium and we're BACK! Our goal is once again to organize a weekly casual tournament for you, where you can train and test your deck against other, international players!

Some rules:

  • Our tournament is Standard Format, open deck, BO1, 30min Swiss rounds and BO3 top cut.

  • We will follow the official Pokémon guidelines for League Cups to determine the amount of rounds we will play, as found in the tournament rulebook.

  • For now, our tournament won't have prizing for top finishers. The main goal is to test and have fun. This might change in the future.

  • Check-in will begin one hour before the start of the tournament. Check-in is compulsory at the start of the tournament and before each round. If you don't check in two rounds in a row, you'll be dropped by the judges for inactivity!

  • We know PTCG Live is full of bugs. We hope everyone understands that we can't do anything about that, but we'll try to rule as fair as possible in any case of a bug happening during a match.

  • Disconnection = game loss.

  • A genuine tip: Please try to remember to take a screenshot of your 'Victory'-screen and hold onto it for a couple of minutes, in case a dispute takes place and you need to prove your win.

  • Invitational points are rewarded to top players for our own Absolem TCG Invitational! This Invitational will take place after 20 tournaments with the top 32 players in our rankings!

  • Our tournaments are mainly for fun. So please be patient and friendly towards each other. And most importantly: have fun!
