Oh wait, I almost forgot a few things.  In addition to the plethora of AMAZING prizes for the winner of the World Open (and believe me when I say some of these things are out of this world!), there will be the continuation of a tradition started last year, as well as a new one.  Last year, it was decided that the winner of the World Championship would be presented with two blank Backstage Autograph Session cards.  One for him to sign and keep for himself, and one to send to the Master Copy.  That will continue this year.  In addition, given that we aren't the WWE and can't afford a trip to WrestleMania, we decided to do the next best thing.  As long as you can get yourself to Indianapolis, IN next year, we within the RDPC will take care of the cost of your 4 day badge.  That's right, an $80 top prize (no, not cash, badge) in addition to the other great swag.  All yours for the taking.

how does the cost work? do i have to get a badge from the gencon website itself? or how does it work?


(i might be going to the usa in that time period so i would like to know more, since this is the first time i have seen this, so that i can be better informed. and as such, i may be able to make plans to go over to indy for gencon 2013)


THANKS!

You can purchase a badge at gencon.com up to a certain date, yes.  After that, you can buy one on site, so showing up without a badge isn't a problem.  (Not sure when the cutoff for early registration discount ends though...)

Check their website for more info.

As I said, its on the website, but...  the entrance fee to enter the convention is buying a badge.  They have thousands of people there, you don't get to just walk in and look for free.  ;)

To enter the tournaments, the fee (charged by the convention, otherwise we would just run them all for free) for the events is listed in the first post of this topic.

I was just on Gencon's website, found Raw Deal.  My only question is why is the maximum players listed as 16?  I hoped to see more there.

Partially based on past attendance....and I'd assume the more people you say are in your event the more the venue wants to charge for the events....so this is a smart thing...keep costs down! Remember how much the CI-backed qualifiers cost after all

We originally set it at 32 but they cut the number down to 16 due to past numbers for the event. The more people we get to show up and play the better.  I hope to see you all there.

Ok, so we could have more than 16?  That number isn't set in stone?  I am going with a group of 4 and if we all play that leaves 12 other.  By gauging the response here I thought for sure more than 12 people were interested.  It would just suck to have someone left in the dark.

Pre register for the events.  I CANNOT stress that enough.  If the convention sees the number of pre-reg we have, they will be more likely to increase our numbers in the future.

Yup. It'll help out with Gen Con guarantee-ing us space in the future. If you know you're already going to play in an event, it would help us out greatly to pre-reg for any events.

What is the format for the open worlds?

I would like to echo this question.  I'll be attending my first worlds at Indy, and the description on the GenCon website said something like the tournament will be across all 3 formats.  So does that mean we need to prepare for all 3 formats (Classic, All Axxess, and Revo), or can we pick and choose which format tournament we want to play in?

For Worlds, prepare for 6 rounds of Swiss: 2 rounds in Virtual Classic, 2 in Virtual Rev, 2 in Virtual AA all before the cut.

......and it will be fair to say you can't use 2 different decks for say the Virtual Classic format yes?

Switching deck choices during a tournament is not legal.  Worlds format is 1 VAA deck, 1 VC deck, 1 VR deck.  Playing 2 rounds with the deck doesn't change that.  :)

There was a debate to allow 6 decks but that's just 2 many decks. 3 decks for the 3 formats. 2 games per Deck. you are allowed to swap out cards to each deck. Like if you only own 1 champ is here. you don't have to use the throwback one you can use the original one in both decks. just swap between rounds

Correct except for the debate part, there wasn't one officially.  1 format = 1 deck, that's how it has always been.

And yes, your decklist stays the same during the tournament, but it is legal to move physical copies of cards between decks as needed.

may be silly, but i want to make sure before i show up with an illegal deck.  for the tag format (not tornado tag), are virtuals legal too?  I didnt see any rulings about the format anywhere...
