:| dont have hearthstone yet
Can we have a cheap ass bad newb bracket so I don't completely embarrass myself?
How does this work exactly? Like we all friend each other and match up according to our brackets or something? I've never done any competitive online gaming so I wasn't sure how you actually pair off in game and stuff.
Probably someone does a random draw, make the brackets and post them online as a googledocs or whatever, then you just friend people and play them yeah. Hearthstone has pretty much 0 supports for anything so it's just do it yourself style.
Would like for the weekday options to be a bit later... 6pm pst is 4pm cst, most aren't even off work by then.
Wrong direction, 6pm PST is 8pm CST / 9pm EST
I voted saturday, but also I think the managrind and tl open tournaments are on saturday, but we could also do them on saturdays where there isn't a tlopen or its eu's weekend.
Sundays would also work fine, once football season is over.
6pm pst is 8pm cst, weekdays might work for me, but I have to get up stupid early for work so I wouldn't want to run late either.
I voted for the weekend since my weekday evenings are usually out. Looking forward to this.
Saturday works for me, thanks for setting this up bro.
Ive got voice chats if we need to use also, feel free to PM if so.
damn conversions. well that's a much better option then, changing my vote
People who have put in the time are going to win regardless if you have some kind of pauper restrictions because they know what works best.
Voted for Friday but most of the other times should work for me as well as long as I know a couple days in advance.
Since someone asked, yeah, when we decide on a date I'll ask people to sign up by posting their battle.net ID. At some sign-up cut-off, I'll take those signed up and put them in a bracket generator, post bracket. On the day of we'll have a check-in time, either via a website or logging into an IRC channel etc., something (Krassus offered a voice chat server). You friend the person you're playing, play your games, winner reports back. A lot of it is on you to find your opponent, be signed in, etc. Repeat till finals.
Edited that into the original post. This is basically how most HS tournaments work right now. Teamliquid's site has all their brackets/check-in stuff built-in, as does MLG, and most of the other small tournaments just use websites that have bracket/check-in functions. So if you want to play HS competitively this is what you'll be doing a lot.
Will we need to post deck lists/classes used or will everyone be going in blind against one another?
I didn't vote because I can't participate but if this is going to be available to watch on Twitch or something, I'd love to watch this.
If anything this is a good chance to compare strategies. I haven't pulled a lot of good cards yet but I seem to be doing decently with a couple of classes regardless. I'm down.
So these rules? Or any deviations? How do you know someone didn't change decks? Just honor system and telling on each other? We supply decklists to you but they are kept secret from the other players?

Yes. Though you don't need to supply deck lists to me either. If people want to cheat and switch up their decks between matches.... there isn't a good way to police them, honestly, not with the current tools in Hearthstone.
That seems a bit rigid, there are few enough of us with the game as it is. As there is no way to view the matches it is not necessary to rigidly schedule those matches. Generate your random seeds and let players use whichever decks they choose, most will be gaining new cards throughout and it is unfair to lock them into their starter decks when new strategies are possible. Players can report when they have played their games and it can then be updated. There should be a window of time to play matches with the opponents scheduling their own matches or reporting if their schedules conflict too much.
When an observer mode is added to the game it would be a good time to revisit the loose scheduling but for now it's better to try to meet the needs of the players instead of forcing them into a schedule that might restrain participation. The same for locking players into a deck, I think that is a bad idea for now but once there is an observer mode there might be better reasons to revisit this rule but for now it would be prudent to allow players to adjust their tactics after a loss if the goal is to appeal to a larger base of participants, as it should be at the inception.
I can not generally predict what my schedule will be more than a day in advance and cannot therefor vote for a time-slot.
Um, most tournaments run a couple of hours. I got into the quarter finals of a tournament with like 100 people. It started at 6 PST, was over by 8:30, I was done by 7:15. That isn't what I think of as a major time commitment. If I have like a thousand people sign up, sure, maybe play it out over a couple of days, but I don't think that is very likely. Apparently you don't either, since there are "few enough of us."
What you are thinking of is called a sideboard. Until it is implemented in the client, I think sideboards in HS are simply not a practical idea for tournaments. MLGs tournaments you can change your whole deck, though not your hero, between matches, win or lose. That is a bit silly. With TL's format, which it should be noted is the format used for basically all major HS tournaments except MLG, if you lose, you get a whole new deck, because you're playing a different hero. If you win, you're "stuck" with the deck that won.
Sorry you can't predict availability. I'll arrange it so sign ups are, at a minimum, up to the day before so if you happen to be available you can participate.
It is not the time commitment but rather the collective time commitment. This is not a local event so trying to schedule a 2 hour window of time for the, lets say 20, people at the same time becomes a more arduous task task. Having the opponents report back may increase the time-frame of the tournament but it would decrease the amount of commitment needed to make a tournament work. I hope this gets off the ground but you are working with a subset (R.R. Forum users) of a subset (who also have the beta) of a subset (who also read this post) so I would predict a lack of participation and if this is indeed the case this format might be a solution.

Ive got the day off, if you want to taste of a non legendary deck find me at dandylion#1160
I can probably make any day. Would love to play in a structured settin.
Looks like Friday is winning atm. Week from today. I'll close the poll on Tuesday and start sign ups, since Wednesday is unlikely to win.
I guess you could vote for more than one day? shit says 17 voters, but there are 27 votes.

Well, I guess if you can make more than one day. But he did say which we would prefer so that's what I voted. Should have been one where we can see voters!
So far 8 votes for either Friday or Saturday. Voting closes tomorrow and I'll start taking sign ups.
Looks like friday may win anyway, but I initially voted saturday, but turns out friday may be better for me because I may not be able to show saturday.
