Water Crystal Cup - 4th/5th May 2019
Athena Games is proud to be working with Square Enix for the Final Fantasy TCG Water Crystal Cup.
Date and Time:
The Event will be hosted on the 4th and 5th May.
Doors will open at 10:00 AM and the Tournament will start at 11:00 AM.
This Event will feature the limited Format – Draft as well.
Day 1: Constructed Swiss-Rounds based on the number on Participants. (Best-of-One)
Day 2: Top 32 Draft (Best-of-One) followed by a Top 8-Cut (Best-of-Three) in Constructed again
The Points from Day 1 will be carried into the Draft-Rating - you will Draft in Tables of 8 Players, but you can face all Players.
What is different in Competitive-Draft?
- You need to build a deck of at least 40 Cards
- You only need to deal 6 damage to win the game
- You can have more than 3 copies of each card in your deck
- You will draft 5 packs of Opus 8
- All other normal rules apply!
You will play 4 Rounds of Draft on Day 2 and the Points will be combined with the Points from Day 1 to determinate the Top 8 which will play best-of-three constructed with the decks they used on Day 1!
Some more information about Draft:
- The Draft is only for Day 2 and only for the Top 32 Players, all other players can participate in a Side-Event of course
- The Draft will be using stamped cards and all cards will be non-foil. The Foil Card will be randomly replaced by different non-foil card from the Set. All the Foil Cards will be added as Extra Price Support.
- The Draft will be timed, and you are only allowed to look at your Picks after each completed pack.
- The Points from Day 1 will be carried into Day 2, this means that the Swiss will continue for 4 more Rounds and all Tiebreakers will remain as well, this realized with Cross-Pairing - this means you can play against players outside your Draft-Table but still players with the same (or similar) numbers of Wins. Your Day2-Round 1 Opponent will be on the same Table, sitting 3 spaces away from you in each direction.
