Discord

Every match-up will have access to it's own voice server to faciliate direct communication with your opponent. The voice server is not required, but we have been using it regularly with no complaints.

Rules

  • Format: Arena Standard
  • Parings: Best of 3 Swiss rounds, number of rounds based on number of participants
  • Time Limit: 50 minute rounds, using Aetherhub timer.
  • Draws: If any match goes to timelimit, the match will be scored as a tie.
  • Schedule: Rounds will begin early if all previous round matches are completed before time limit.
  • Decklists: All Standard legal decks are legal, but must be submitted prior to the event.
  • Reporting: Both players are required to report scores after each round via this page. If you need assistance, please ask.
  • Crashes: If a player's game client disconnects and the player is unable to reconnect in order to complete the round, that player will be issued a round loss. If both players disconnect and the match is unable to continue, the round will be scored a tie. Players have 10 minutes at the start of a round to begin play. If a player is unable to connect in that time, they will be issued a game 1 loss. After 30 minutes, they will be given a round loss. 
  • Players are expected to treat each other with respect at all times. If any player is abusive towards another in any manner they will face sanctions including possible disqualifications and bans from future Plague League events.

 

Procedures

When pairings are posted, find your opponent on the Aetherhub tournament page. Then either find an empty Discord voice channel (marked with "Table #") or find your opponent in a voice server.

Both players must issue a challenge in MTGA using the following settings, or if players are friendlisted, one may issue a challenge:

Tournament match
Best of three (3)
Coin Flip
Arena Standard Cards
Timers On

Once the match is played to it's conclusion, both players must report their scores to the Aetherhub tournament page. Failure to do so as a winner may result in a round loss or drop from tournament. If neither player from a match reports their score, it will be recorded as a draw.

If reporting an intentional or agreed upon draw, please submit that score as "0-0-3". If you have played one match and wish to submit an intentional draw, please submit that score as "1-1-1".

Once the round begins, players have 10 minutes to find their opponent, issue the challenge and begin the match. After 10 minutes any player that has not joined a match, the waiting player will reward themself with two wins and mark the "no show" checkmark for their opponent via the Aetherhub tournament page.

Any player wishing to drop from a tournament is asked to mark the self drop checkbox on the Aetherhub tournament page.
