Pwn The Poobah!

Earn A Seat At The CCC!


Once more into the breach! In conjunction with Wotc, and with support from Alphabot and clan CerealKillaz, I am pleased to announce a very unique event:

Pwn The Poobah!

This is a Player Run Event where not only can you win fabulous prizes, but you can also win a chance to represent us, the Online Player Community, at the Community Cup Challenge directly!

My instructions were simple: "Hold a Magic Online tournament and place four users as the winners."

The "Pwn The Poobah" comes into play Thursday during the Multiball portion of the Community Cup Challenge. As a reward for making it to the T4 of this event, the T4 players may serve as "proxy members" of the Community Team, and will play a match against WotC employees. If the T4 player wins, they’ll score on behalf of the Community Team for the Multiball round of the Community Cup Challenge. If they lose, WotC gets the points.


Here's how the PRE portion works: We will start with X rounds of Swiss pairing, the number of rounds depending on the number of players. This will be followed by a T8 cutoff. The T8 will play to T4, and stop. This T4 will be my minions ("Team Blippy") at the Community Cup Challenge.

If time permits, the T4 will continue to play for position.

Tuesday, October 23rd
530PM Pacific/ 830PM Eastern
Format: Constructed Modern
Registration is now open at Gatherling
X rounds Swiss pairing followed by T8 playoff.

Each T4 player will receive:
20 Tickets bot credit at Alphabot
10 Tickets from clan CerealKillaz
A chance to play for Community Team points in the Community Cup Challenge

Door Prizes courtesy of clan CerealKillaz
1 Premium Deck Series: Slivers
1 Alara Foil Booster


Here's how the Community Cup Challenge portion works: At the appointed time, the T4 player will make a table labeled "CCC Pwn The Poobah" in the Anything Goes/Getting Serious room. This table must be Constructed Modern, best two of three, watchable, and timed at thirty minutes. The appointed Poobah will join, and the mayhem will commence!

Scoring for this portion of the event is done by WotC, not me. But please do keep me informed of results!
