Hi, I'm TriggerHaven, a gaming Wizard from the Twitch Realm and I've teamed up with CopperPitch, CommunityGaming, Immutable, and the Gods Unchained Community to bring you our THIRD Gods Unchained Community Tournament! Featuring over $1000 USD worth of ETH and prizes!

This event is free to enter. The rules are simple: Single Elimination, Core + Welcome + Trial of the Gods cards only.

BANS: TBD (We are curating a ban list, to be announced in February)

What is Gods Unchained? It's a Free-to-Play, Play-to-Earn, Trading Card Game! Download it here! If you don't have any cards, download now and start grinding for the next tournament!

Registration Open Now:

  1. Sign up for an account at CommunityGaming.io
  2. Enter Trigger Haven's Discord to verify your GU and Discord accounts with our API bot so we can track matches and you can easily communicate with your opponents. ✨Registration Ends: 4am Friday, February 12th, PST.

The tournament will consist of Two Phases lasting through February and into March:

  1. Qualifiers - After registering with our discord bot successfully, play in the official Weekend Ranked competition in the Ranked Constructed Mode in Gods Unchained from 4am Friday, Feb. 12th - 4am Monday, Feb. 15th Pacific Time. The Top 128 registered participants will be seeded into a single elimination bracket where the first round will take place on Feb. 17th.
  2. Brackets - Players in each matchup will schedule a Best of 3 in which they play tournament legal decks against their opponent (switching decks between matches is allowed). NOTE: Legal decks may only include Welcome, Core, and Trial Set Cards. Cards from any set other than these will result in disqualification (e.g. the Genesis Set, Promo, Etherbots, etc.). You must also follow all ban restrictions.

Game Rules

Qualifiers:

  • After following all registration instructions, players will receive a unique TRxxx code. You must put this code in your Gods Unchained username then play one match in Ranked Constructed in order for us to verify you. Note: You need not DM the bot if you have participated in the Welcome Set Tournament or the Early 30 Ranked Leaderboard, as you are already verified.
  • Participate in "Ranked Constructed" battles, 4am Friday, Feb 12th - 4am Monday, Feb 25th Pacific Time.
  • NOTE: You may use any cards in this phase.
  • The Top 128 will be seeded into the bracket based on MMR at end of the qualifier period. They will then be placed in groups in the Tournament Discord Server to assist with scheduling.

Scheduling a Match for Single Elimination Brackets:

  • After you are assigned a bracket, it will be your responsibility to arrange a best of 3 matchup with your opponent using the "Direct Challenge" mode during the legal time period for the round (See "Tournament Timeline" heading above).
  • Each player is expected to put forth reasonable effort to be available for matchups. Since players are in many different time zones, be aware that schedules may not align at convenient times.
  • EACH DAY the bracket advances, players have 24 hours to contact each other to schedule a matchup, and a backup. Failure to meet these agreed upon times will result in disqualification.
  • Having your availability ready to share with your opponent when the bracket is published will help greatly. Failure to communicate with your opponent in your appropriate tournament channels may result in disqualification.

Disconnections during 1v1 Bracket

  • Disconnection during Best of 3 Matches after cards are dealt must count as a loss. Be sure you have a good connection for your matchups. If disconnections or hang ups occur before god powers are picked, alert your opponent in your bracket's discord channel, force close the game, then continue playing your matches as normal.

Conduct

  • All bracket matches are recorded in the API and will be checked to verify validity of only using Tournament Legal cards and powers. Violations will result in automatic disqualification.
  • Be concise and courteous in your communication with your opponents across all social media during the tournament.
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct across all social media (not just the tournament server) may result in disqualification from the brackets and forfeiture of any and all participation prizes.

Considerations

  • My friends and I will be doing our best to make sure it runs smoothly, but there will assuredly be a few problems here and there. If things aren't perfect this time around, we'll refine it for future community events!
