Format

This tournament will be played in the Star Realms Digital App.

This tournament will consist of a number of swiss rounds (based on attendance) followed by a cut to a single elimination top 8.

Each round will be a one-game match during the Swiss round and best 2 out of 3 games in the top 8 rounds.

Each round players will be instructed as to which sets they are using that round. They will be using one or a combination of: the Base Game (Full Version), Colony Wars, and Frontiers.

Procedures

The tournament matches won’t be timed, but players are expected to play at a reasonable pace. The winners must promptly report their match results on Battlefy. When each round begins, player A (the left/top player in the pairings) must issue a 48-hour challenge to player B (the right/bottom player in the pairings).

We will announce pairings before each round and standings after each round via the Star Realms Event Updates channel on Discord. Players should report any errors within 5 minutes of each announcement via the Star Realms Event Chat channel on Discord. If a score is contested within this time, we will look up the score in our database. Otherwise, the reported score is final. We will also announce round start times and end times in the Star Realms Event Updates channel.

Post to the Star Realms Event Chat channel on Discord whenever:

  • there is an error in the scores, pairings, or standings (report errors within 5 minutes after each announcement).
  • a challenge is not issued and accepted within 5 minutes after the round’s start time.
  • you miss a round and would like to participate in the remaining rounds.
  • any other issues arise during the tournament.

How to Use Battlefy

In the Preliminaries bracket (Swiss matches), pairings are displayed in table columns. The left player must issue a Challenge to the right player in the Star Realms app. The winner must report their match scores via the tournament page under Brackets > Preliminaries > [select round number] > [select your match].

In the Finals bracket (elimination matches), pairings are displayed in a horizontal tree. The top player must issue a Challenge to the bottom player in the Star Realms app. The winner must report their match scores via the tournament page under Brackets > Finals > Matches Button > [select your match].

The winners must promptly save their match results using the red “Report Score” button on their match page. Players are not required to take screenshots.
