The TCO Fundraiser Tournament!
« on: October 21, 2020, 11:17:11 AM »
TCO isn't free. There's a cost to keep these forums going and to host the Virtual cards. I figure since we're the ones benefiting from utilizing the Virtual cards, why not take this chance to give back...and host a tournament at the same time!

Here are the details:
1. Format: Virtual Classic
2. Games are to take place on OCTGN, the only online system that supports the entire VC library.
3. Single elimination, 16 player event. I'm capping at 16 to prevent 10 first round byes. Pairings will be generated randomly.
4. Pairings will be posted Monday and you have one week to complete your match-up. Failure to do so will result in double elimination. Please be aware of this before committing to the event. If you are the player unable to make times work, you may also forfeit.
5. Official results will be posted here, but feel free to use Discord too.
6. I don't want to track decklists, so feel free to use any superstar you wish each round. In the event of diversity, I suggest both re-picking superstars or rolling a D20 and loser switches superstars.
7. Cost: $5 in your local currency or US funds. I'm not picky, I'm sure Creeds not picky. If you want to donate more, that's also appreciated! Please donate here:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/TCOCreedP
8. Prizing - I'll have a little something for the winner.

Please sign up below and round 1 will start Monday October 26!

Thanks to the much hated Revolution Format and Roman Reigns' spear I beat three other folks to be your current Raw Deal Champion and the "most irrelevant one in history" ...yay me :)

Donated but I'm not sure if I can commit to the tournament, you can register me as the 17th participant if there aren't enough players or someone drops.

While not signing up....  :P  Just wanted to thank everyone for the help, it's so greatly appreciated!  Usually we get close and I cover the rest, but this has not been a good year (even pre-pandemic). 

Thank you, again, and I'll try to chip in some alt-art stuff for those who participate, and for the winner.

Brackets have been updated!

We are awaiting two more results from Round 1, but both have been active in communicating, just having troubles lining up. Because active communication is occurring, we'll give them one more week - then if still no results, we may have to flip a coin.

In a battle of Mania vs Summerslam, William Regal punched his way through OG Hogan for a decisive pinfall. Scotty (81F) takes the win over Keith (23F).
