Colossus Belt Winter

Notes about the previous match
First of all cheers to pjotri for entering and putting up a fight! The final score was a 5-2 victory for me.

We decided before the match to play all 7 games regardless of the score and that we would only play each mage once. These rules will not apply to future matches, but if both players agree to it things like these might be done again, we did not break any rules of the format we just added extra restrictions.

What is the Colossus Belt?
The Colossus Belt is a series of matches where a champion takes on one challenger at a time, if the challenger wins they get the title and will then be the one to face more opponents.

It is currently a Bo7 format, using the latest playtest rules and matches will take place every two months.

Before each match challengers may sign up, if there are several one will be chosen by the following tie-breakers:
TB1: Highest placement in a tournament in the last 2 years, (must at least be top 4).
TB2: How recent that tournament was.
TB3: Highest placement in a tournament all time.
TB4: How recent that tournament was.
TB5: The champions choice

The tournaments looked at are GenCon, German Nationals and the ones held by Arcane duels, more might get added. If nobody sings up before the deadline, whoever signs up first gets to play.

Whoever lost the most recent match is still allowed to sign up, however everybody else will be prioritised over them, this is to prevent a situation where we have the same two players over and over again.

Pacing moving forward
As I mentioned earlier there will be a match once every two months, the one comming up will be scheduled to end before March, matches will then be announced on the first day of every odd month (january, march, may...) and a challenger will be picked on the 8th.

If the champion quits
If you become the champion you do not have to play the following match, you can also simply quit the competition, having the next match be between two challengers chosen by the tie-breaker format. If this occurs the loser of the last match will be able to enter just like everyone else, since it's already clear that we won't have a repeat pairing.

Sign ups
A new challenger will be picked on the 17th of December, you have until then to message me here or on Discord if you want participate. This match will last longer, until the end of February if needed, partly because it coincides with the tournament held by Arcane Duels.
