Cool!

I'd offer at least T1 2P - no time limit and officially banned cards are banned in online games too.

Would there be any other category (besides Teams, Multi and Drafting) which would be of interested or which several participants would like to play?
I liked T Half quite much (also due to shorter games and different challanges regarding deck building) but I don't think that this format is still a viable one due to all these new cards not really fitting in there (reducing hand size permanently etc.).

What about a "Starters Category" where only starters G to J can be chosen for playing (also G vs G, J vs J etc. is possible - do not know whether such kind of format already exists or has a name)?

Please tell me your opinions/whishes then we'll see how to deal with.

T-1 2-P for sure.  If you decide on another category and I can fit it in to my schedule I may be interested in that as well.

Please sent me your proposals/wishes for other categories (besides the ones I mentioned and similar ones since I think those are hard to align [e.g. for multiplayer] take too much time [e.g. drafting])!

Hey Reth, TEAMS should be doable.

Also if you want to run a sealed event (each player starts with an I or J starter) plus three packs of their choice I can help facilitate that.

Thank you! Don't think that we get enough players for a team category.

I'm assuming these will not be available for those playing online since it's an unofficial tournament, but if you're looking for info about the 2019 Offline Official National Tournament, you can find that here.

Ok, so far there seem to be jesse, Silenced and me.    More players highly welcome (but Prio1 should be attending at Nats if possible!  :))

  Althought I don't care about getting them from playing, they did give them out last year to us.

That would be awesome if we could get the promos! And I'd be good with any events but T2-2P and booster are my favorites  :)

  I don't know how to do booster or sealed I know there is a tutorial but I'd be down to do booster/sealed.

OK, T2 2P would be fine for me (while I will not play it). And indeed: Getting the Promos as well would be awesome!

I also would really like to play booster draft (the very 1st time in my life) - but in real!  ;D
I need to check again after reading the tutorial but IMO drafting on Lackey is very time consuming and might have other disadvantages (need to read that tutorial again). When we might go for booster or sealed then MP only I assume - or what did you guys had in mind?

So currently my information is:

T1 2P:
  • jesse
  • SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx
  • Reth

T2 2P:
  • jesse

Booster (if happening):
  • jesse
  • SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx
  • REth

For drafting, you can always do the draft portion itself out-of-band (i.e., the night before or whatever). It is kind of a bonus gaming session! The only real drawback to boosting in Lackey is if someone makes a mistake or a player's session gets disconnected during the draft.

There is an easy way and a not-so-hard way to run a sealed event depending on if you completely trust players not to cheat in the deck building or want a bit of control around it. The easy (trust everyone) way could be done in game. In the more controlled version, you simply send players their packs ahead of time and verify that only the sent cards are in the final decklist. Since I won't be playing, I would be happy to facilitate a sealed session.

Just started to read the LackeyCCG booster draft tutorial - does this mean by deleting the packs folder I will "only" have the maybe outdated pack folder from that tutorial - not being able to use all the latest cards anymore (if not saving current packs folder)?

And isn't DC pile visible to all players by default? Maybe better using reserve pile instead?

I'm interested...but August 1st and 2nd are both very busy days for me.  :-\ It would help me if I have some notice on what time of day (EST time) the categories will each be playing at.

I am especially interested in the Starter Deck category and the Booster Draft. I like things pretty simple haha. :P
Are you near Indianapolis, Indiana? If so, come play!!

@Jaydog1616:
Hi there and welcome. Currently there isn't a fixed time slot for playing the categories. Besides Booster Draft pairings can be played at a suitable time where both players need to negotiate upon. Games should ideally be finished until next day/next matchup announced etc.

Currently there is nobody else for the starters Category but I can jump in if I can arrange it.

At which time of the day would it be possible for you to play on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th of August?

OK. So up to date we'd have the following categories and participants:

T1 2P:
  • jesse
  • SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx
  • Reth
Booster (if happening):
  • jesse
  • SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx
  • Jaydog1616
  • Reth
Starters G to J:
  • Jaydog1616
  • Reth

For T2 only jesse applied so that category cannot start due to lack of players.



Schedule (we'll handle this flexible):

   Thursday, 1st of August 2019:
  • T1 2P - first round
   Friday, 2nd of August 2019:
  • T1 2P - second round
   Saturday, 3rd of August 2019:
  • Booster Draft Multiplayer
   Sunday, 4th of August 2019:
  • Starter Decks

@Jaydog1616:
If possible for you we can also prepone the Starters Category if it won't get too late.


Pairings:

T1 2P - 1st round:
  • jesse vs Reth
  • SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx vs jesse

T1 2P - 2nd round:
  • Reth vs SiLeNcEd_MaTrIx
