Prismata Beta Pre-Season Tourney 2 is this Sunday, and it’s the RAPID ROUND!

Hi everyone!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be hosting another 1-day just-for-fun Prismata Beta Pre-Season Tourney this Sunday!

This week’s tourney is the Rapid Round. All games will use Rapid (20s) time controls. Rules are otherwise similar to the previous Pre-Season Tourney from December.

As always, players of all skill levels are welcome. There are prizes just for participating, and the tourney is Swiss-style so players will be matched against opponents with similar tournament records.

Sign up here!

Rules and Prize Info (copied from Challonge):


Prismata Beta PRE-SEASON TOURNEY 2 rules:

  • Pairings are Swiss-style with 8 Swiss rounds and default Challonge pairings/tiebreaks.
  • Each match-up is a BEST-OF-2 where both games are played no matter what. A 1-1 record is scored as a tie.
  • All games are Base+8, 20 seconds, with default settings (no handicaps, no unit picks/bans, no analysis mode, etc.)
  • Drawn games are worth 0.5 points each (so going 1.5-0.5 in a best-of-2 counts as a win, and two draws yield a 1-1 record).
  • No-show = loss after 5 minutes at tournament director’s discretion.

  • Please sign up on Challonge using your *Prismata Username*.
  • You MUST CHECK IN!! We require this to eliminate no-shows. If you don’t check in, you won’t be added to the tournament.
