Yugioh: Single & Tag Tournaments!
Yugioh: Single & Tag Tournaments

Hello, and welcome to the Yugioh tournaments event! We'll be running both a single and tag tournament for you all to get involved with, so grab your decks and come join in the fun. Use either this thread, VMs, PMs, or anything else to organise your duels, and post the results here!

The singles tournament will consist of an all-vs-all format in which duelists play against each other as many times as possible, with each win counting as 1 point. The duelists with the most points before the end of the stage will progress to the finals in which a winner will be determined. All duels will be in Match format (best of 3) and should preferably be carried out on YGOPro due to having an automatic rulings system to avoid disputes, and due to the surplus of new cards available to use, however Dueling Network can be used instead.

The tag tournament is a newer type of format consisting of teams of two dueling alongside each other, sharing the same field but alternating their decks each turn. This too will start off as an all-vs-all format, with each win counting as 1 point for the team and having the teams with the most points face off in the finals. Each match consists of only one duel and uses the standard rules. This format is only available on YGOPro and so all tag matches must be carried out there.
  • Link to download YGOPro: here. (For Windows; use the self-extractor)
  • Link to Dueling Network: here. (You will need to make an account)
If you need any help on how to use either of these applications, feel free to send either of us a message and we'll be happy to assist!

Rules & Ban List
Due to the audience, these tournaments will adhere to more restrictive ban lists as to avoid certain decks making the tournament unplayable for less experienced duelists.
  • Decks must adhere to the official up to date ban list.
  • Cards from the following archetypes may not be used in any form: Mermail; Elemental Dragons (Dragon Rulers); Fire Fist; Spellbook (Hidden Spellbook and Spellbook Organization are still permitted)
  • In tag duels, both duelists may not use the same archetype for their decks.
  • All single duels should be carried out on YGOPro if possible, otherwise use Dueling Network; all tag duels should performed be using YGOPro (YGOPro has automatic play so rulings can't be disputed).
  • All duels for the singles tournament must be in the Match format (best of three duels); tag matches will be as standard for YGOPro.
  • Standard rules apply: 8000 Life Points; 5 cards to start; draw one card per turn.
  • If there is a dispute over a card's ruling, look into the ruling first before arguing about it (each card has a 'rulings' page on this site). If a ruling cannot be decided; consult on of the event organisers to make a decision.
  • For a duel's result to count, both participants most post the results in this thread. If your partner hasn't posted the result, please contact us.
  • Don't make fun of duelists for using bad decks/combos; this tournament is for fun!

Deck: Gem-knights

Hngg I'm most likely gonna lose every single battle. I've only played like 4 battles so far, so I feel sorry for anyone who's gonna put up with battling with me :D

From all the people dueling so far, a lot have been having problems with Dueling Network so I suggest downloading YGOPro for the tournament (link in OP).

Honest July 5th, 2013 6:02 AM

Just gonna say, I tried downloading YGOPro and it did something funny to my security system. =/

Username: Bloodex
Deck: Exodia
Preferred Platform: Dueling Network! Sorry, but I'm not downloading YGOPro, my father got really pissed at me at what it did to the laptop. :I

Exodia? Bloodex, you little troll...

I'm not sure what deck I should use now. I was thinking to run with ol reliable, my anti-heal, but now I'm really considering using a little deck of pure evil that I've been working on for a couple months.

Blah. I'll hopefully settle on a deck in a few hours.

They certainly sound like interesting decks, can't wait to see which you choose :o

Beat Bloodex's Exodia deck 2-0. That was really fun ahah.

Honest July 5th, 2013 7:38 AM

My Exodia deck's alright, but I'm getting killed D;

Loss to Francois, (0-2)

François July 5th, 2013 7:40 AM

Just beat Bloodex's Exodia deck 2-0, and that took quite some time!

edit: too slow </3

Mr. X July 5th, 2013 7:45 AM

Nowadays you'd have to run a FTK Exodia if you wanted results. Even then, its still sheer luck - If you end up going second on the first duel then odd's are your going to lose the match.

François July 5th, 2013 8:06 AM

Just beat Alex's poorly manufactured (;D) batteries 2-0 with my ladies <3

I use an Underdog Exodia deck. It's not even slightly reliable, but when it does well it does very well haha.

Lost vs François' Harpies, 2-0.

Honest July 5th, 2013 8:10 AM

We're allowed to use different decks, right?

François July 5th, 2013 8:26 AM

Yes, just state what your new deck is in the thread and it should be fine I think!

Squirrel July 5th, 2013 8:28 AM

^ And make sure you re-battle us because your new decks will be awesome ;D

Honest July 5th, 2013 8:31 AM

Haha, I don't know about THAT, but alright. :3 Thinking about using my Ancient Gear deck, except that sucks. So let's see. :3

Mr. X July 5th, 2013 8:34 AM

We can swap decks?

Makes it a bit easier to decide what deck to use I guess.

Lost 0-2 against Alex (Reverse Burn V Batteryman)

Squirrel July 5th, 2013 8:34 AM

Oh I love AG, definitely a good choice to use!

And welcome, Mr X! We should duel soon. :D

New points system
2-0 win: 3 points
2-1 win: 3 points
1-2 loss: 2 points
0-2 loss: 1 point

Basically we thought this'd better reflect who's actually been dueling and give everyone some credit haha.

Mr. X July 5th, 2013 8:37 AM

How are we going to do the coolest deck contest? Just by what we're using in the tournament, or just post what we want to enter for it?

Edit - Changed to Reverse Burn - Savage would be a good deck to get coolest deck with, but it's not exactly... reliable.

My DN name is asdfth13 - Message me whenever since I'm on right now.

Mana July 5th, 2013 8:42 AM

I would so give this a go if I wasn't going to miss most of the get together ><.

Honest July 5th, 2013 8:53 AM

Wait, I've been on a losing streak, how do I have two points? o_o

François July 5th, 2013 9:08 AM

You get 1 point just for actually playing a match, to encourage people to be more active + differentiate between those who've lost a lot and those who've simply not done anything (hai Olli)!

Squirrel July 5th, 2013 9:13 AM

Won vs Mr. X; 2-0! Was actually a really fun match, that deck was very interesting haha.

Mr. X July 5th, 2013 9:14 AM

Lost 0-2 against Alex

The batteryman deck is evil. I kinda screwed myself over when siding as well.

François July 5th, 2013 9:56 AM

Won 2-1 versus Mr. X, and that deck had me really nervous aha.

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 3:18 AM.
