There will be 5-10 cards banned from each tournament. Cards will be announced at least a week in advance. Ban lists may change between tournaments.
In unlegendary tournaments all legendary cards are banned and there will be an additional 5-10 card ban list
Weekly tournaments will be swiss with a cut to top 4 (if 16 or less players) or top 8 if more than 16 players.
Matches will be played best 2 of 3 games.
All decklists for all tournaments needs to be provided 1 hour before tournament start.
Matches will have a 45 min timer.
All tournaments will be played through solforgeladder.com so players need to create an account on that website before signing up for a qualifier.
I really hope we can bring a competitive scene back into Solforge, so spread the word, get those old players back and bring new ones into the game.
Lets do this!
