: Jedi_EJ and YOU
: Common/Uncommon Constructed, 5 Round Swiss, Single Elimination Top 8, Best of 3, no play/draw rule
: 28 March 2020, 1200 CST
: To raise a donation for Child’s Play (Providing entertainment to kids in medical facilities)
Greetings Knights, Padawans, and all the great people of the Eternal Community. I think we have a fantastic group of people here and would like to do a couple of things that generate a lot of synergy and high value. I wanted to create an event that can bring us together regardless of play skill, collection size, global location, and allow us to be creative (deck building), test our play skill, do some additional good in the world and have fun while doing it. So this is an attempt at creating something bigger than ourselves (or just me at least). Ok enough about the setup, on to the nuts and bolts.
28 March 2020 at 1200 CST (so this coming Saturday) I and the rest of the Jedi Order will be hosting an Eternal tournament for charity. The tournament is FREE to join located in the links within this post and will consist of a COMMON/UNCOMMON ONLY (PEASANT) format. This allows any player that wants to participate to join regardless of collection, use of normal shiftstone fodder build arounds, appeal to limited players, and create another challenge for those creative brewers. All cards in Eternal sets are legal with the EXCLUSION of the campaign cards. Tournament will consist of five (5) rounds of swiss with a cut to a single elimination Top 8. All rounds will be best of 3 with no play / draw rule.
Prize support will be a 50USD Steam gift card to first place, 20USD Steam gift card to second place, and sadly that’s it since I’m hoping the majority of the funds will go into donations for the charity. (I’ll explain in a moment) Additionally I like how tight knit the Eternal community is and would like to somewhat continue this with a little inner community competition between the various Eternal Teams that have been created. So if a minimum of five (5) teams participate with a minimum (but not limited to) three (3) players each, I will include an additional 20USD Steam gift card to the team with the best score! Teams consist of any of the known entities with a title and have been represented in previous Eternal Tournaments such as [misplay] [tnt] [BarbarianCamp] and the many others. Scoring for the team event will simply be adding the rank of the top three (3) finishes for the team together and the lowest total wins. Example… 2nd, 7th, 11th place finishes equal a score of 20 for that specific team. Let me know if you like this idea or not please.
Child’s Play is the organization we will first be fundraising / donating to. They focus on supplying video game consoles and age appropriate video games for groups of children that are in hospitalized care for an extended period of time to help distract them from such tough times. Anyone can donate as soon as this post is live and can continue to do so until the end of the tournament this Saturday. The link is a third party that is designed for fundraiser campaigns and is independent from my own content, so feel free to click the link below if you decide you’d like to contribute. Thank you in advance for donating and/or for reading this far.
Broadcast of the tournament will be on my Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/jedi_ej
) and at the moment I won’t be on a delay and will not have either hands displayed for players. Unless things change, I feel this is the best way to avoid technical issues with the stream and ensure a great viewing experience for the community and be the most fair to the competitors to avoid sniping. I do encourage anyone that is curious or interested in seeing some great and new players innovate deck design as well as show off piloting prowess to tune in and cheer on your favorites!
If you have any further questions or concerns feel free to contact me in this thread or on discord. =)

Update 1: Special thanks to the generosity of our very own www.twitch.tv/kasendrith
prize support has been bumped to 50USD for 1st and 20USD for 2nd !!
Update 2: After feedback and discussion with the community we are going to remove the campaign cards from the list of legal common / uncommon cards. I initially wanted to give people access to unlocking potential in some never used cards, but the addition of Pride Leader, Maul, Inquisitor's Blade, and Equivocate might cause too many Spikes to have very few decisions and limit outside strategies. As well as a potential entry wall with those casual players that have not purchased the campaigns. Thank you for your feedback and being flexible as we grow together.[/tnt][/misplay]
