Yu-Gi-Oh Duelist Arena

Start Date: July 3, 2022

Start Time: 1:30pm

End Time: 5:30pm

Rules:
-$25 entry fee for the month.
-Base prize pool of $30. Increases dependent upon overall sign-ups for the Duelist Arena.(A portion of the event fee will go to the prize pool.)
-You get 10 Star tokens to begin with.
-You're allowed 1 Resurrection(Reaching 0 Star tokens you can choose to use your Resurrection or give up.) Upon using your Resurrection you return with 3 Star tokens.
-Once you use your Resurrection, and have 0 Star tokens remaining, you are out for the month.
-Initial pairings are random(we will put names in a bag and draw for them)
-After initial pairings, participants can challenge whoever they want.
-You CAN NOT challenge the same person more than once for the duration of that day's event. (unless there's just not enough participants of course)
-There is no penalty for a bye, nor a gain.
-Players must challenge other players, if there is a scenario where people are trying to not challenge in order to get a bye, or willfully not trying to challenge to save their Star tokens, or a friend group is just continually challenging each other, then the D&D team has full authority to pair people regardless of Star token count.
-Deck lists will be required.
-No proxy (unless you legitimately own the card and can prove ownership)
-Players who are challenged by other players with fewer Star tokens than them can not refuse the challenge.
-Players who have fewer Star tokens than the player that challenged them can deny the challenge.
-Players who have equal Star tokens can either accept or deny the challenge.
-It will be best of 3. 45 minute time limit.
-Players wager Star tokens before their games begin, anywhere from 1-3 Star tokens max. The wager can not exceed the amount of Star tokens the player with the fewest Star tokens has. The wager is for the entire best of 3, not the individual games themselves.
-At the end of the event players will report their Star token count to a D&D team member to be accurately tallied and all Star tokens will be given back to the shop to be re-issued at the beginning of the next event.
-1st, 2nd and 3rd places are determined by overall Star token count at the end of the month. If there is a tie, then the two will play one more Bo3 and the winner of that gets the placing. The loser will then challenge the person in the ranking below them for that spot. ( Example: If a tie for 1st happens, the loser challenges 2nd place, then the loser of that challenges 3rd place.) Hopefully having Star token count as a placing prevents this from ever happening but if it does, this is how it will play out.
-You *MUST* compete in at least 3 out of the 4 events for the month with the first and final events being mandatory. If for some reason you can not compete in the final event then all of your progress is forfeit.
-No deck swapping. You must finish the day's event with the same deck you started. However, you can use a different deck during the next event if you'd like.
-No refunds once the Duelist Arena begins.

Prize Support:
1st place: Cash
2nd place: 5 standard boosters of your choice.
3rd place: 4 standard boosters of your choice.

*this will be a "living event" where it will evolve as we fine tune it over time*
