Il était une fois…months ago when ShupeTV casted the Kalkstein Horror Event, organized by Team Elder Blood, they were able to watch some of our Bandits in action. Since then both teams developed a deep friendship, especially with our French players Xhanthiax and Sikamouk. Some Bandits, like Sawyer1888 even managed to win the weekly Shupe community tournaments, in his case it was under the motto Blitzkrieg.
(Who else could have won it…)
Based on this history both teams always wanted to have a face off against each other, so we thought why not combine it with a good cause? The idea was to make it entertaining but also unique and challenging. So, for that reason day one of the charity event is meant to be the day Shupe finally catches the Pig…or maybe ends up like Robert Baratheon.
A troll fighting against a pig for a good cause, what more to ask for on a Saturday afternoon?
Let’s take a closer look on what the tournament will be about, its participants and what to expect.
Each team will choose a charity of their choice. There is no limitation on this charity in terms of the cause it supports, its political affiliation, or its geographical location. All that Bandit Gang asks is that it is a public non-profit charity. All donations during the weekend will all be entered into the prize pool and donated accordingly by player placement.
Winning Team – 65% of the prize pool towards this team’s charity
Second placed Team – 35% of the prize pool towards this team’s charity
The event will be played under a special ruleset with certain restrictions. This means for example Team Bandit Gang have to include Gascon or other Bandit cards, while ShupeTV obviously has to play singleton Shupe or other ogroids. The team with the most wins will also win the whole event. In total that means each player has to play one Best of 3 with his or her faction against their opponent, so we have six games to cast.
If the event ends in a draw in total, each team picks someone for a final face off in a Best of 5, where all decks has to get a win.
Start Time: Saturday August 7th @ 8am CDT
Six players of each team will face their opponent in a regular Best of 3
(Three decks, one ban etc.)Each player will receive one faction which he or she represents, means that this specific player has to create three different decks with different leaders of the same faction 🡪 The teams decide for themselves which player will represent which faction
Some deckbuilding restrictions count for all decks together, means for example if you need to play Shupe, at least one deck must be a Shupe deck, the others can be non-singleton.
For each team there will be different restrictions, fitting to their team’s name or based on other things, which will be worked out together by ShupeTV and Bandit Gang.
