Rumbleslam Rumblemania III

Be the heel, be the champ, get that intro music ready because Rumblemania is back Brotherrrr!!!

When: Saturday, July 28th, 12:00pm

Entry Fee: $8.00 // or 2 Hero’s Rewards

Stronghold Members get: 1 Hero’s Reward for participating

Format: Rumblemania is the premier Pay Per View event of the Rumbleslam Crackdown League, and this one is special as it will issue the first ever title belts, including crowning our first World Champion of the World!  Rumblemania will have three rounds on the card:

Round 1: Exhibition – Everyone is paired randomly and play a game of exhibition for the Crackdown League.  Each player that plays in this round will earn a bonus point towards the league (in addition to the points acquired for the game itself).  The game format is decided by the players together, if they can’t agree they will use the World Champion of the World format.

Round 2: Royal Rumbleslam – Everyone plays in a multi-player royal rumble – a special format for up to four players.  Players bring a team worth 1,000,000 Dosh, limit one ‘Tag Team’ and they play a four-player game using the Tag Team rules.  The order in which players are eliminated decides the title matches they will fight for.

Round 3: Title Matches – The winners of Round 2 pick first, followed by the second place players etc, performance in Round 1 breaks ties.  The players pick from a selection of title matches determined by the event organizers, but everyone will be fighting for a title of some sort.  The World Champion of the World will be one of the titles up for grabs, and the others will be determined by overall attendance (1 Title per 2 players will be up for grabs).  Participants play games using the format rules for the Title they are going for.  The winners of these rounds will be our first title holders, who may then be challenged by players who spend enough Star Points in the Crackdown League in the future!

Prizes: In addition to the possible pride of becoming a title holder, players will have an opportunity to win a door prize or two.  We will pick some good Rumbleslam stuff to give away, and each player will get a ballot for each round they play, and for each victory they earn.

So tag a team-mate, bring those belts, and defend them with all your might!

Guild Ball League: Season 2

Guild Ball Season Two is happening this summer!  Registration opens today!

When: The league will start on July 1st

Sign up: Register your team by June 28thth, if you wish to participate in this season.

Entry Fee: $10.00 // 4 Hero’s Rewards

Format: At the beginning of the league we’ll announce a schedule of weekly games.  Over six weeks, you’ll play other people in the league and get points for winning and losing (if you don’t play a game you get no points).  You’ll also be able to play up to six pickup games with anyone else in the league (it could even be the same person).  You’re get slightly fewer points for these games.  At the end of the six week regular season, the folks with the most points will be seeded into a bracketed elimination to crown a Guild Ball Season Champion.

Scoring:  Scheduled games are worth 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 point for a loss.  Players may also play pickup games scheduled on their own initiative with league members. Players may play up to 6 pickup games, and they are worth 1 point each. Points are to be used to seed the playoff brackets at the end of the league.

Scheduling: On Mondays, there will be a post on Facebook and an email sent out to all participants with all games on it. Coordinate with your opponent (via either Facebook or email) to find a good time to play a game. All games must be played at Black Knight. After completing your game, report the results on either the Facebook BKG guild ball group or via email to Craig.

Absences: If you or your opponent is unable to make a game, then your game can be deferred. Please let the commissioner know as soon as possible. If you wish, you may be able to play a game the week before it is scheduled, if that works better. If, after a reasonable period of time, the game is unplayed, the game is counted as either a draw or a forfeit.

Prizes: We have kits from releases, and other goodies, so players will all get some kind of sweet promo prize.  Additionally the champion will win some store credit (depending on attendance)

MTG Battlebond Release Draft

This Friday, during FNM, our players will have the chance to play a Two-Headed Giant draft using Battlebond!  This will be an option for our regular FNM draft time, so if there are enough players interested we will run both the Battlebond Release draft, and the regular Dominaria draft.

When: Friday, June 8, 6:30pm – 10:00pm

Entry Fee: $20.00 -or- 6 Hero’s Rewards (the same are our regular FNM draft)

Two-Player Draft: For a 2HG draft players with with their team mate, and we run pods of 8 players (4 teams) ideally.  Teams get 4 packs for Battlebond, and open one pack at a time, and select two cards from each pack as they are passed.  Matches are a best-of-one.  We will play 3 rounds, just like our usual FNM Drafts, and prizes are distributed similarly.

Battlebond Launch Promos & Bonus Pack: In a typical FNM Draft our players draft with 3 packs each.  Since Battlebond recommends only 4 packs for a team draft, players will each get a Battlebond booster pack at the end regardless of how they do.  Additionally we will pass out, at random, special Battlebond Promo packs, which contain a pair of partner cards in them, to each team.  These promos WILL be passed out before drafting, and teams CAN use the promos in their draft decks.

Prizes: Like our regular FNM drafts we will put 1.5 boosters in to a prize pool for each player, and those packs will be distributed among the teams that go 2-1 and better.  This is an FNM event too, so it does qualify for our FNM promo cards (Cast Down) as well.

So be sure to jump on this rare opportunity at a Two-Headed Draft, and celebrate the first ever multiplayer focused set!
