Online Championship Series Information

Post by imrahil327 »

Format
•8 OCS Qualifiers, each running for 1 month
•OCSQs use the league format on GEMP
•In each OCSQ, a player will be eligible to play up to 12 games total (6 LS/6 DS), and will be eligible to play a given opponent once per side.
•Entry for each month's OCS is $10, except February, which is FREE!
•The top 2 finishers during each OCSQ will earn berths into the Online Championship. If there is a tie, the player with the better win percentage will earn the berth; if still tied, the player with the better opponent's win percentage will win. If either the first or second place finisher is already qualified, then one of the berths will be passed down to the third place finisher. If there is still a berth available after this (that is, if any two of the top three are already qualified), it will be added to an "at-large" pool, to be awarded after all 8 OCSQs are completed. These at-large berths will be given to the top overall scores who have not already qualified (based on total win points across all OCSQs, with ties broken by win percentage and then opponent's win percentage).
•If you would like to enter all 8 OCSQs at a discount, you can purchase a season pass: https://www.starwarsccg.org/wpstore/pro ... ason-pass/

•The Online Championship will be a top 16 single-elimination, match-play bracket that will take place throughout November & December.
•Players will be seeded based on their performance across all qualifiers.
•The players will schedule their games and inform the PC in advance, so that we can promote each one and give everyone a chance to spectate these games live. We will also be streaming as many of these games as possible with live commentary.

Prizes
•Players who complete at least 10 games in an OCS Qualifier will receive an exclusive foil virtual slip. There will be a different foil slip for each of the 8 qualifiers.

•Other prizes and random giveaways may be given out at the discretion of the PC.

•Championship Series prizes:
1st place: $800 and a MAIN v-card design
2nd place: $400
3rd & 4th place: $200
5th through 8th place: $100
9th through 16th place: $50
-All Top 16 competitors will receive a special AI foil v-slip, exclusive to the OCS.
-All Top 8 competitors will also receive a trophy (to be mailed after the conclusion of the tournament) and Player of the Year points commensurate to a Major.

Rules/Misc. Info
•As this is a new event type, we have done our best to ensure a fun and fair structure for all concerned. That said, we recognize that we may not have perfectly hit on the correct structure, and as such, many of the specifics are subject to change- if (for example) we find that the maximum number of rounds in each qualifier (or the number of rounds required to receive prizes) is either too high or too low, we reserve the right to adjust them. Additionally, the cash prizes are a baseline, and if the Qualifiers are wildly successful we may be able to increase the amount given.
•Each person may enter each qualifier with only one account. If someone is found having multiple accounts in a given qualifier, all such accounts will be removed from the qualifier and prevented from participating in future ones.
•Chat is intentionally disabled for spectators of OCSQ and OCS games.
•This is an official SWCCG PC sanctioned event, and as such any player banned from playing in PC tournaments is also banned from playing in this event.
•If games are interrupted, completed prematurely or glitched due to a technical error, please report it to one of the GEMP team and/or the Tournament Committee. A list of the affected games will be generated. In such a case, if both players agree to hold to the result of the game, the game will be considered final. If either player disputes the result, the game will be removed from the record and both players will be eligible to play an additional game that month.
•Please treat these games as tournament games. This means that once you enter an OCSQ game, you should not ask to cancel and re-play the game later, and your opponent has the full right to refuse such requests. Please schedule your games when you will not be interrupted.
