Mage Wars 2022 Online Tournament!
Tournament Structure and Outline

  • This tournament will be played in 2 stages. The first being a round robin in smaller groups. The top 2 of each group will advance to the single elimination stage. There will be a semi finals match, and the winners of those will advance to the finals for taking first place. There will also be a third place match for the losers of the semi finals.
  • If you would like to enter the tournament, email us at Arcaneduels@gmail.com. Or you can sign up on Challonge at Challonge.com/MW2022
  • In order to enter, you must commit to playing one mage wars game per week. Failure to do so will result in a loss for that week. Repeated games missed will result in disqualification
  • The start date for this tournament is December 18th.

The weekly schedule will be as follows:

On Challonge your matchups are announced. Feel free to play any matches that you have currently assigned too.

Competitors have from the matchup announcement on Sunday until 2359 Central US time Saturday to get their matches played and the results emailed to arcaneduels@gmail.com or posted on the discord.
    *You can email the result in a text format, but we also want the OCTGN inherent replay files for possible later casting.

    Ideally, there will be a featured match up each week. We would love to cast your replay files.  We do not guarantee your match will be casted, but will try our best!

Rules
  • If one party has been unresponsive in scheduling a match, they will forfeit the match and tournament
  • If attempts have been made by both parties to schedule a match and it just doesn't line up by the end of the week, let Arcane Duels know and we will try to help on a case by case basis (typically by having the match scheduled for the following week with those competitors being required to play 2 matches during the next week). In some cases both players will be disqualified.
  • If neither player has attempted to schedule, both will be given a loss
  • If required, a judge makes the final call on a rule. Any argumentative discussion that takes an excessive amount of time will receive a warning. If it continues that player will be disqualified.
  • If a player gets disconnected and dropped during a tournament match it will be considered a loss for that player
  • All cards released on OCTGN are legal to use. All promotional cards available on OCTGN are also legal. If there are playtesting cards that update currently existing cards, you must use the newest version. For example you must use the Wizard that has Arcane Zap for 2 mana instead of the older version.

  • Players will build a spellbook with the standard amount of spellbook points and restrictions. They may change mages or books between games if they wish.
  • Any promotional cards that have been officially released in a set will be considered to read as the official released in a set version

Restrictions And/Or Clarifications

Other info

Matches must allow official commentators and judges in as spectators. Non-Official Tournament spectators are not allowed to spectate a game unless both players agree to it. Some games will be streamed live, and may be posted on youtube for all Mage Wars fans to view.

Logistics
ALL coordination is suggested to be done through email. We also have been accepting Discord messages as well. Make sure to include Arcane Duels in your message so we can easily track match up coordination (everyone should CC arcaneduels@gmail.com or Coshade when figuring out when you can play your match). This helps us see if someone has been unresponsive and can take appropriate action

Curious on the decision to change Levi's attack, doesn't feel necessary to me, but smarter minds  then I are pulling the levers here

While it doesn't affect most players. In playtesting it's been shown through a couple hundred games that this is a needed balance.

Hey there,

We posted an update two weeks ago! Currently there hasn't been many updates to the set, and that is a sign that we are ready to call it finished.

Just to note - the main community switched over to the discord posted above. Unfortunately this forum isn't used by a majority of its members anymore. While we do post updates when we change cards here as well, there is a lot of other discussions about strategy, cards etc there.

We'll have updates on distribution once this set is wrapped up!

Hello!

Just wanted to make an announcement about the latest OCTGN update! The Dropbox has been updated with the current image pack.

Changelog 2/17

Clarification - You reveal the spell to have its effect on whatever it is attached to (zone, creature etc.)
Added a destruction effect when revealing a spell


Temporal Aid
The rulebook will specify that movement actions are not effected by this spell.

Mind Leech
Clarifying what happens when attached to a creature
Changed effect to encourage attaching to creatures. Now when you are attached to a creature, you stun instead of daze.

Leviathan
This creature’s attack is now a full action instead of quick.
Stance
All stances now have a target bar of “Monk Creature”

Temple of Time
You must now choose between either adding a Dissipate or removing 2 damage from Melting objects.
You can now only target Non-Epic Dissipate objects
This card is now called Sistarran Temple

Tiger Stance
A third stance has been added for Monk creatures. Enjoy!

Dojo
-Removed Spellbind Keyword
-Clarified how binding spells function

Cobra Stance
When this stance is revealed, it now destroys cards/tokens that cannot target Uncontainable creatures.

Goals - Currently we hoping to announce a tournament for sometime Mid-March. We will be trying to do any updates needed to finalize the set until then.

DaveW - Leviathan is a promo card that through testing most players agree for an official release needs some balancing before it is allowed in a tournament setting. Most errata is in a situation where through years of tournament games have been proven to be too powerful. We aren't doing many changes to officially released cards in sets, and the ones we are doing are with thorough testing and community discussion. Keep in mind the Wizard's Tower errata is not a part of this set. That was done back in 2016. Most of the released cards that are receiving an errata have been on the docket since 2017 (Zombie Brute, Pillar of Righteous Flame, Disciple of Radiance, etc.), and are now being taken care of.

Graf! - Welcome to the community! I know there are a lot of cards to go through as this is a massive game. OCTGN right now has a Final Release section. The goal of that section is for all promo cards that were unreleased to be released. As a rule use those over the previous Promo section (which served for promo cards that were not included in a set). It is in a public playtesting phase so they will be subject to change (although 90% of them have been this way since the start of the year). We will probably have another tournament to sometime in the Fall using these new cards on OCTGN. We would love to see you there!

Rules Discussion / Re: Helm of Righteousness
« on: July 28, 2021, 03:03:19 PM »
Hey there,

This is a good question! The Dawnbreaker Ring gives the attacking mage the Range and Melee +1 trait on light attacks. The Helm of justice is not an attack when it deals damage, so it would not gain any additional damage from the Dawnbreaker Ring.

    ***General Announcement - 2***

    Well you all rock. We ended up doubling the amount of players entering the tournament on the last day. Because of this we had extended the round robin to be 4 groups of 4 players each. Only one player will advance to the semi-finals. I am updating the front of this page to reflect the groups. If you have trouble contacting your opponent - feel free to contact us at Arcaneduels@gmail.com, or pm me on Discord.

    Good luck everyone!
