Interest List

Post by imrahil327 »

Hey all, we are kicking around some ideas for how best to make this unique World Championship work. There are a few different format possibilities that we are looking at, but we'd like to get some idea of the numbers that we would be dealing with before we finalize details.

What we know now:
•The event will take place on GEMP across two weekends, with the most likely dates being December 4-6 and December 11-13.
•The event will likely include a segment of 'pod play' on the first weekend to accommodate the varying time zones and geographical locations of the player base

Beyond that, we are still discussing details, so I won't be able to answer specific questions, for the most part.

This thread is not binding, of course, but it will be most useful to us if it is as accurate as possible. Please post "Yes" in this thread if you are considering playing in the tournament based on the above information. Feel free to add clarification if you think it will help us- things like "Yes, if _____" are fine. This is not intended as a discussion thread, though, and all comments that aren't simply "Yes I'm interested" (with details if necessary) will be removed. Thanks in advance!

I’ll probably be playing no matter what, but hoping that logistics start coming together quickly - just over 8 weeks out now...

Logistics... meaning 6 or 8 games, how many time slots available for pods, will private rooms definitely be enabled 3 weeks prior, is prize support decent, how likely will I get requested pods (like Robbie was pretty assuring for TMW)

I’d think given 64 for online MPC and 62 for online TMW, 60-80 for online worlds is a pretty reasonable estimate

yes if the private rooms are indeed available for 3+ weeks prior to worlds and it works within the context of real life, work etc.

The rest of the questions are the reasons for this thread, but I believe this is pretty much a lock, assuming the trial period goes as planned. QD can correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes I am interested barring a conflict with prior commitments (MTG event Zendikar Rising Champs is scheduled for weekend of Dec 4 that I have to play, so a conflict is fairly likely but you never know there might be a way to do both or that might not end up being the weekend you choose).

Yes, assuming Wokling doesn't get nerfed (I'm not being sarcastic).
Nope, but I'll do commentary

im sorry i havent been around much, life has been kinda stupid to me this year, December is pretty far out, and i'd like to say 'yes' but at this rate, i'll probably have a leg amputated or something by then(joking...hopefully)

I want to keep up my streak of doing worlds commentary, so i will definitely be down for that for sure, if the world still exists, and doesnt look like mustafar outside

sorry im kinda emo right now if you know me well, you know why
