Long story short: My local game store has an OP kit #6 that they are able to donate for an online OCTGN tournament.
If we picked a single day, say a Saturday or Sunday, starting early EST-wise (maybe 9 or 10am?) would you be interested in participating in a one-day tournament on OCTGN?
Details: The devil is definitely in the details. There are some obvious extra things that would have to be worked out to have a “normal” style tournament online. I am hoping that if we start early enough in the morning, US-wise, that the Europe folks would be able to join in and we could have a truly world-wide tournament.
Time limits would have to be adjusted to be longer than the normal 50 minutes, so chances are if we go 4 or 5 rounds we’d probably have to make the top 4 or top 8 play-offs another day. If that’s the case, we could run the finals similar to how we run the OCTGN league finals, where each pairing has 1 or 2 weeks to arrange a game and play each other.
There are other small details that would have to be worked out, but right now I just want to gauge interest. If there is enough interest, we can talk about the details and which day/time works best. It will likely be after the last set is out, so that is exciting (at least to me!). I think there is only 1 Sheriff event that will have the last set legal, so until the Outlaw events next year the competitive meta will have very little other than some OP and maybe Deputy events.
