OCTGN Frankenstein Tournament Signups
« on: July 08, 2020, 08:49:51 AM »
The next OCTGN Raw Deal tournament will be a Frankenstein tournament, with a live draw this Saturday, July 11, at 4:00 PM EST. (1 PST, 9 GMT)

Frankenstein tournaments work a bit differently than a standard event. Rather than selecting a superstar directly, players will be constructing decks with a given Superstar and Backstage, a different superstar's Backlash specifics, and a third superstar's Arsenal specifics. These three superstar assignments will be made with the assistance of a randomizer.

Process:
1 ) The player will receive a choice of two random superstars; they will use the selected superstar's face card and any Backstage cards. Note that this is specifically the superstar you are given: The Second Coming's logo does not appear on World Tour 05, so he does not receive permission to pack those.

2 ) The player may reject both options; if they do, they will be given the next superstar off the top of the deck. They MUST use that superstar, and cannot revert back to one of the rejected options.

3 ) This process will repeat for Backlash, and finally for Arsenal. Again, at any stage, a player may decline their two choices, but they will be locked into the next choice off the top of the deck, sight unseen. As before, you receive only those cards with that superstar's logo; The 8th Wonder of the World TB only allows the packing of Giant Braintrust in the Arsenal, not all Andre cards.

4 ) The player will then build a standard Virtual Classic deck using these specifics instead of the specifics normally packed by their Superstar. This applies to any superstar with blanket packing permissions from an Ability, as well: The People's Champ, who normally may pack cards with the Rock logo, may not do so unless the player chooses The Rock in another draw. HOWEVER, any superstar card that gives specific packing permission for individual cards may pack that card, and any non-Ability packing permissions are allowed. Nidia is specifically permitted to pack Tough Enough in her ability; she may do so. She may also pack Jamie Noble-specific non-maneuver, non-Backstage cards except Nidia Interferes, due to the text on Jamie Noble is in My Corner.

5 ) Any superstars not chosen will be returned to the randomizer deck for other players' consideration, however once a superstar has been chosen for any of a player's three slots, that superstar cannot be assigned again.

6 ) For fairness, if a player receives only superstar options with 0 or 1 card in the given zone, they may discard both options and receive a new set of options; however, this replacement will not apply if the player has chosen the random topdeck option.

7 ) Players present at the live draw will draft in the order of their signup in this thread; anyone who cannot be present can make arrangements for a draw at a mutually agreeable time after the live draw is complete.

8 ) Selections are public knowledge, and will be reported here when the draw is complete.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask below or on the Discord. Once the tournament structure is settled and dates are finalized, this post will be updated with that information as well.

EDIT: There has been a question on how to deal with "NAMED SUPERSTAR-specific" references on cards, as opposed to "Superstar-specific." For example, The Lone Warrior TB's He Can't Be Slowed Down has text referring to Goldberg-specific Actions. This can be handled one of two ways in this tournament: either "Goldberg-specific" means exactly that, and The Lone Warrior will not benefit from that text unless he ends up with Goldberg-specifics in his Arsenal, or "Goldberg-specific" means "specifics with the logo of the superstar you have drawn for that zone", and whichever specifics they are, you may benefit. As in normal Raw Deal, in either case, "Superstar-specific" will apply no matter what. Please select a poll option at the top, and we will codify the rules with that.

EDIT 2: Slight oversight on my part, but the Gail Kim/Molly Holly superstar card will be a valid choice for SUPERSTAR ONLY. Should that card come up for a player's Backlash or Arsenal selection, they will be replaced for free.

EDIT 3: Per our previous poll, by a 9-6 vote, NAMED SUPERSTAR-specific will refer to cards with that logo only. There is a new poll, regarding the tournament format. Please vote as soon as you can.

6 ) For fairness, if a player receives only superstar options with 0 or 1 card in the given zone, they may discard both options and receive a new set of options; however, this replacement will not apply if the player has chosen the random topdeck option.

IOW, they'll be in the pool (I mean, sometimes the card they get is good enough to justify it and you might actually want them), but if you only turn up 8th Wonder and YFH for Arsenal, you can replace them free. However, if you turn down two options, and your random third card is YFH, then you have 60 slots for non-specifics.
