Online Cache Refresh Tournament starts Oct. 2


#1

Stimhack Online Cache Refresh 3 will begin Monday, October 2.

I was going to wait for the Kitara cycle to start before doing another CR tournament, but with all the changes in the card pool in the last few weeks, several players expressed interest in playing again. So, here it goes.

How will the tournament work?
This will be an online version of a regular FFG tournament with 4-6 weeks of Swiss pairings followed by a single elimination top cut. The number of Swiss rounds and the size of the top cut will be decided by regular FFG tournament guidelines for relaxed events. The top cut will be played in a best 2-of-3 games format.

Each Sunday night starting October 1, the tournament organizer will post pairings. Players will need to arrange games during the week and report results by the following Sunday. In other words, you will play one game per week.

Scoring will be standard with 3 points for a win. Players may not ID or two-for-one.

Policy Regarding Scheduling Conflicts
Pairings will be posted before midnight Eastern Time each week. Players should contact each other on Monday to arrange a time to play before the reporting deadline. (Remember, you will both Corp and Run.) If a player does not respond to initial attempts to contact within 24 hours, they will forfeit the games for the week. (I’ll need documentation of attempts to contact.)

If players cannot reach a mutually agreeable time to play despite sincere attempts on both ends, then I will enter the results as a 3-3 tie unless one player agrees to concede the match to the other.

If problems with Jinteki or other connection issues disrupt a game. Start over.

If problems with Jinteki or other connection issues prevent the conclusion of a match before the deadline, it will be entered as a 3-3 split unless one player concedes the match to the other.

Will we be using the Cache Refresh bidding system?
No.

Each week you will play both Corp and Runner.

How do I join?
Sign up here before October 1.

To sign up, you will need a Slack account. That is the best way to arrange games. If you do not provide a Slack username, your entry will be invalid. If you do not have a Slack account, you can use this link.

The Slack channel for this tournament is #cache_refresh_tourney.

This tournament is also listed on Always Be Running, where you can register and later link your deck lists.

What are the deck building rules?
We will use standard Cache Refresh deck building rules. At the start of the tournament you will select an ID for each side (runner/Corp). The card pool for your decks come from the following:

1 Revised Core Set (Core Set 2.0)
1 Terminal Directive
1 Big Box (this may be different for Runner and Corp)
The last two cycles of data packs (Flashpoint & Red Sands)

You may change the cards in your deck between weeks, but you cannot change your card pool. You must use the same big box for the whole tournament.

If a new cycle begins while the tournament is going on, Flashpoint will cease to be legal for the tournament at that point and the new cycle will become legal. (NOTE: If a new cycle starts, Flashpoint’s IDs will remain legal but the rest of the Flashpoint card pool will not.)

Cards are legal for the tournament when they hit their retail street date and are available on Jinteki.net.

Where can I post my match results?
Use this Google Form to report the results of you games. Only one player needs to submit match results each week.

If you have any questions, please post here or over in the Slack channel.

Good luck and have fun.

I plan on streaming all my games, and I’ll post the links to the games here. I hope others do the same!

GET HYPE


#9

Last tournament was the first time I tried streaming/commentating, it’s a ton of fun and I highly recommend it for everybody. I went the super-low-budget route and used “live hangouts” through youtube-- really convenient way to get into it, anybody with a google account can hop in to provide commentary.


#10

Too bad that can’t stream on my laptop. But hope for new ideas for the new Core and MWL.


#11

Would gladly commentating your matches. Wanna try that feeling. :smiley:


#12

Just a general reminder, please note that the quantities of certain cards in the revised core has been changed (compared to the old core).
For instance, you can only play a maximum of 2xDiesel and 1xSpecial Order

What runner ids are doing well?


#20

We’ve seen a wide range of runners over the three versions of the tournament. Shapers (primarily Smoke and Kit) have done well, but Anarchs and Criminals have placed highly as well. Right now we have all three factions and an Adam represented at the top of the Leader Board part way through round 4.
