**********SIGN UP IS CLOSED AT THIS TIME*************

A surprising number of you expressed interest in participating in a Hearthstone tournament. I've never run one but will do my best. I don't want to put a ton of structure behind this since it's just for fun, but it's kind of a necessary evil. Also if someone wants to put together a logo or banner, that'd be swell. Here's what I've got...

Details

Signup: Now - May 31

Tournament Start: June 1st

Tournament End: ?

Format: King of the Hill (Best of 3, single elimination, see rules for more information)

Rules

- North America servers

- Each round will last 4 days

- Each round is best of 3, the semi finals and finals will be best of 5.

- Submit 3 "decks" upon signing up, each being from a different class. You are locked into these "decks" for the duration of the tournament (so no hard countering between match-ups or games)

- The winner continues to play their deck (no modifications)

- The loser picks from one of their available, unused decks. (no modifications)

- Previously used decks "unlock" between rounds.

- Winner reports results (along with the record for the set)

In a perfect world, you'd be required to submit a deck list prior to the tournament. Since there is currently no spectator mode, and this is just for fun anyway... we'll just go off the honor system and ask you don't switch decks between rounds (don't use HandLock in one round and ZooLock in another) or make any hard counters between games. Thus, when you're submitting "decks", just give me the three classes you'll be using.

Misc Stuff

- You are free to change your classes after you sign up until until June 1st. Please PM any changes.

- Do not tell your opponent which class you'll be using prior to the start of your match.

- Please use this thread to schedule your games. In the event you don't get your game in, if there appears to be a genuine effort made on your part to get your game in, I'll give you the win and advance you.

- In the event of a disconnect, be mature and discuss what you want to do. In the event you can't, I'll moderate and decide accordingly. (If you feel compelled to broadcast or record your games, I can use that as "evidence" of sorts).

- This is just for fun, a little BM is fine, but don't be a dick.

5/24 Update - We gained a huge number of participants today. Thank you so much everyone for your interest and spreading the word! Right now we're sitting at 28 participants, I don't think we'll sniff it, but just in-case I'm going to cap this at 64 participants. Also - if you have any special scheduling accommodations or are outside of North America - please let me know so I can try and pair you up with someone in your neck of the woods. I can't guarantee I'll be able meet everyone's needs but will do my best. Please don't take it personally if I can't.

5/25 Update - We're at a 33 people right now which is fantastic. As it stands right now, there would likely be a "play-in" game of sorts that consists of the first round. This will be completely random. Since the entire bracket will be posted, everyone else will be free to start scheduling and playing their first game - giving 30 people a total of 8 days to get their first match in. I've found a few sites I can use for the bracket, I'm just looking for one that will allow me a little more customization. Also - the tournament will be composed of 4 smaller brackets ala the NCAA Basketball tournament. Any ideas for GiantBomb themed names?

5/29 Update - Putting out a last call on this so I can get the tournament together and live tomorrow. Sign up cutoff is Friday, 5/30 at 12:00 PM CDT.

Got it. Shocked at the number of priests and no Shaman yet. I'll PM the people in the other thread this week that expressed interest to see if they're still down.

Heads up: I work at night so my playing time will be limited then. It doesn't mean I can't because I do have the ability to play at work, there are just certain times when I can't.

Ah darn it, I was pumped to join but probably wouldn't have the time to get all those cards in the NA-version.

@perniciousdistortion: Thanks for signing up! For the matchups, I'm probably just going to draw out of a hat, but will try to make anyone with any special scheduling accommodations requests that match up with each other in the first round or two.

@c0v3rt: Forgive my ignorance, but just so I understand how this is gonna work, we'll be paired up with one other person each round? And then on this forum or through PM we coordinate with that person when we'll do our matches within the 4 days of that round? Then after that notify you of the results, and the winner goes onto the next round and then rinse/repeat the above each round?

I liked this game until I realized I would never get all the cards everyone else seems to have. Now I just watch people play it on twitch, too frustrating to play it, even though I do win more than I lose. Every loss is followed by me saying "yeah great, you have every card, that seemed really fair!" and then I of course curse the heavens.

Of course I ignore the times I completely roll people, partially due to the few non-default cards I do have.

Great question, you're exactly right! I'll post the bracket on June 1st. Matchups will be random but will try to accommodate any scheduling needs in the first round. Preferably you try and schedule it through the forum, just incase your opponent flakes or doesn't respond - we can see YOU made an effort to play and can give you credit for the win. I'll probably have the winner give me the results (probably via PM), winner stays and the loser is bounced.

I know the feeling! If you change your mind you're more than welcome to join! I'm sure there will be some people playing some tryhard decks (which is totally fine!), but there are some pretty solid decks out there with a low crafting cost if that's your thing. Even if it's not, run your current decks and just have fun with it. :) If it's still not your thing - hopefully this is well received and we can have more in the future you can partake in!

Aw shucks, you're breaking my heart Rorie! I've seen your MTG Quick Look and I'm pretty sure those skills translate into Hearthstone! If you ever change your mind, we'd love to have you!

@c0v3rt If the first rounds are best of 3, will we be required to play the same class/deck each time in that best of 3? Say for example Player A chooses the Shaman and wins, will he have to play the Shaman the entire best of 3 against his first opponent?
