Description

This event will be a standard Modern Constructed event. Here you will find the official list from Wizkids of Modern legal sets: https://wizkids.com/dicemasters/dice-masters-rotation-2020/

We will be using Swiss-style pairings. The total number of rounds will depend on number of participants as follows:

Players        Rounds

6-8                 3

9-16               4

17 - 32           5

33 - 64         6

Each round will be 45 minutes long and the winner will be determined by “best of 3” games within the 45 minutes. Incomplete games will be awarded to the player with the highest life total when time is done. One game each will be recorded as a tie. 

Info about playing Online

We will be using three key services to play the event online. These are:

  • Web-based Video Calling
  • Discord Chat Server
  • Challonge Bracket Generator

You are required to have an account with Challonge and Discord, and to be a member of the “Dice Masters Online” Discord chat server to participate. 

To play rounds pairs will be expected to use a web-based video calling service like Google Hangouts, Jitsi, Skype etc with the web camera focused on their play areas. You may find it useful to check out this Playlist on YouTube that includes videos from across the active online play community demonstrating their set ups for playing Dice Masters online: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgk4ClbtsU25taEm2z0ohHo2Fy2m4Qrnk

We will provide suggestions & guidance on the day regarding video chat services you can go to for your games: several Dice Masters community websites have embedded “rooms” that can be accessed with the click of a single link. 

The Discord Chat Server will serve as the central point of contact for all players and the tournament organisers. Within the server is a channel called “modpdm-online-ukge” and this is where we will all digitally congregate throughout the event, report round results to the TO, and provide updates (such as round pairings). You can join the server by creating a Discord account and going to this link here: https://discord.gg/bheaGyh

Finally; Challonge bracket generator will be used to manage the pairings & results. This will be the go-to location to see your pairings each round. It is also on Challonge where you would register for the event. 

Please submit team lists by 7pm on Friday 21st August. These are to be submitted by e-mail to [email protected] as a Dice Coalition Team Builder link. You can find the Team Builder here:
