Rules

There are two start times. 5PM Eastern/4PM Central and 8PM Eastern/7PM Central.

Sign-ups

Events are open to all Magic the Gathering Arena players, but will be powered by MTGMelee This includes sign-up, pairings, scoring and round timing.

Players are free to sign-up right up until the first round’s scheduled start. Deck submission is no longer required.

Every player is expected to be on their Player Control page as well as the Plague League Discord. Players are encouraged to use the voice channels on the Plague League Discord server. But text communication via Discord is also acceptable.

Rules

Format: Arena Standard
Pairings: Best of 3 Swiss rounds, number of rounds based on number of participants
Time limit: 50 minute rounds, if rounds are completed early, new rounds will start early.
Draws: If any match goes to a time limit, the match will be scored as a tie.
Schedule: Rounds will begin early if all previous round matches are completed early
Reporting: both players are required to report scores after each round via their Player Control page.

Crashes: if a player’s game client disconnects and the player is unable to reconnect in order to complete the round, that player will be issued a round loss. If both players disconnect and the match is unable to continue, the round will be scored a tie.

Communication

All tournament chat will be conducted on the Plague League Discord server. During the tournament, each match will have it’s own voice channel. Both players are expected to join a voice channel but are not compelled to use it.

If a player is being verbally abusive via the Discord voice server, their opponent is encouraged to direct message a tournament admin to supervise the chat. If the abusive language continues, the player will face sanctions up to and including disqualifications and bans from future events.

Procedures

When pairings are posted, find your opponent on the tournament page. Then either find an empty Discord voice channel (marked with “Table #”) or find your opponent in a voice server.

One player must issue a challenge in MTGA using the following settings:

Tournament match
Best of three (3)
Coin Flip
Arena Standard Cards
Timers On

Once the match is played to it’s conclusion, both players must report their scores to the tournament page. Failure to do so as a winner may result in a round loss or drop from tournament. If neither player from a match reports their score, it will be recorded as a draw.

If reporting an intentional or agreed upon draw, please submit that score as “0-0-3”. If you have played one match and wish to submit an intentional draw, please submit that score as “1-1-1”.

We ask that players who wish to leave the tournament before it’s conclusion report themselves as drops, either via the tournament page or requesting a drop on the Discord server.

Standings

Players with an asterix (*) are eligible for the “Rookie of the Season” award, handed out at the end of each season.
