Hello Dominion players,
Welcome to the 2019 Dominion Online Championship! Besides the Dominion League
, which operates around the year, the Dominion Online Championship is a once per year tournament open to all Gold subscribers. Last year, over 250 players participated. If you dare step into the ring, we wish you the best of luck, as everybody vying for the title will be giving it their all. Remember to think carefully about the kingdoms set before you and the strategies your opponents will use, and above all else, have fun!
You will find all the information for this tournament in this subforum. Please make sure to read the rules
carefully before signing up
. If you've signed up, don't forget to check the forum when the tournament starts on September 16th. We recommend forwarding personal messages on this forum to your e-mail, if you don't visit this forum frequently.
If anything is unclear, don't hesitate to ask, either here or in the Q&A thread
Here is the format summed up:
After everyone is signed up, we will create a full bracket seeded by your rank on the leaderboard. It's a single elimination tournament, that means after you lost a match (not a game), you are out. All matches are 2 player matches.
Each round, you have one week to play your match, which consists of six games against your opponent; the first person to win more than three games moves on to the next round, the loser is eliminated. If you end up playing 3-3, you play an additional deciding game.
The matchups for each round will be found in a separate post in this forum (usually named "Round 1", etc.). You or your opponent can report the result of your match on a page that will be given in that post.
We will continue to play one round each week until we reach the finals and subsequently have a winner.
The semifinalists will earn some sweet cash prizes, including 500€ for the Champion!To participate, you need to have a current Gold subscription (all sets up to and including Renaissance) between September 13th, 12:00h UTC and November 6th, 12:00h UTC. Also you must have played atleast 20 rated games on your account before September 13th, 12:00h UTC.
If you don't want to deal with time zones, buy at least 2 month worth of Gold subsciption anywhere in the world any time of the day from 7th of September to 12th of September.
You can check your current subscription status in the Account tab of the game. All expansions should be in color and have an ending date 2019-11-06 or later (the format is year-month-day). If it is exactly 2019-11-06, you need to figure out your local time zone in relation to UTC to make the check. If you need to update your subscription, remember that you'll only need to pay the difference to the time you are already subscribed to.
Looking forward to an exciting tournament!
