Duelers,

Signups for the STEAM Showdown Vol 3: Showdown under the Eldritch Moon tournament are now live. Signups are taking place now on the Duels Reddit on the Steam Showdown announcement thread and will conclude at 1800 EST on Sunday, August 14th. Tournament start date will be 16 August and we should be finished just before Kaladesh drops.

Given the fact that the Reddit thread is for the actual signup, I'll just post here.

Tournament does look promising, both for the meta and the new rules.
I'd just want to ask:

  1. Will the decks be revealed before the tournament starts?
    Because, the idea from the tournament brainstorming thread about hiding the decklists just for the first round was quite attracting. It would've spiced up the tournament start.
  2. Can we get rid of the permanent tournament ban for those that miss a match in a week?
    Repeated offenders may be banned, but issuing a permaban just for a one time thing seems overdoing it.
    Expecially so, if the only solution to that is to PM somebody and unveil either hard truths/mishaps/or blatant lies.

Besides that, quite happy about no mandatory streaming, and the useless d/c match loss. As we can't really be sure about who started the d/c until either the end of the match, or unless someone shows some idiotic plane mode prompt.

We have to make reddit accounts? To think I used to respect you Kryder...

Yes, there is the day of the 15th of August where I will be getting all of that together and posted. Everyone will have around a day or so to look it over and go nutz on what everyone else is playing.

As far as a tourney ban, all I require is communication. If someone can't play, they need to be upfront and honest and TALK TO ME. Those who did it last tournament can play, those who did not still have my treadmarks on them.

As far as streaming, the XBox players are pretty much stuck with that unless they can record and post, but thems the breaks. Everyone else I encourage it, but if not, just post it so it can be replayed.

Before bed, I wash my face with the tears of those who used to respect me...it helps me keep my youthful appearance.

I'm on holiday for this tournament so I'm looking to hire a lackey to pilot a deck on my behalf.

I have 3 decks I'd be interested to see put through their paces in a tournament setting: all you have to do is choose one. Obviously the existing tournament rules apply, so you have to commit to the whole duration, stream or record etc. I'm also open to changes to your chosen deck if you have some valid input on it.

As payment for becoming my lickspittle I will gift you a game(s) of your choice on Steam. The cost of said game(s) will be up to $25, however for each round you progress past the swiss I will up the limit :D

If you're interested please PM me. No time wasters or people of dubious skill :evil:

I would sign up, but I got banned from that subreddit when I badmouthed a mod due to what I thought was an unfair suspension. Bad decision, I know.

I don't think that statement applies to you: there's nothing dubious about your skills - we know they don't exist period ;)

Seriously though, anybody would be upgrade over myself :takei:

Just a question: if the signup is on reddit, does that mean there will be non-NGA users playing in the tournament?

Well last time reddit users did have to come here whether participating on the forum or not and sign up here.

I'm gonna run 2x Gaia's revenge just to tilt BBB into oblivion if we match up!

I'm going to join up this time, and probably get whupped for playing some weird janky deck with a questionable mana base. BUT TREMBLE, MORTALS! For if my deck works as intended, the tears of the defeated shall salt the earth, and the tilting shall rival Don Quixote playing a windmill pinball machine! :evil:

I've signed up. Anyone interested in doing tournament preparation with me send PM. I have no idea what the top deck is but I have a lot of ideas to test and need a good opponent for it since slaughtering Vampires on Steam has no testing value.

I'm in if we don't have to record matches and don't need to sign up on reddit :)
