TOURNAMENT FORMAT

[ Category: Modified - Constructed ]

[ Format: Age Separated Swiss + Single Eliminations ]
In this format, Players will have to play a number of Swiss rounds appropriate for the number of players in attendance. Players are paired against other players with the same, or similar, match record.

After the initial swiss rounds, the top-ranked players are seeded into Single Elimination Rounds where players are removed from the tournament after they lose one match. They will play until only one player remains and that player is the winner of the tournament.

Age Separated Swiss is, essentially, three separate tournaments, with players in each age division being paired only against other players from the same age division, though the final results of the event are reported as one tournament.

o Junior Division: Born in 2000 or later
o Senior Division: Born in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999
o Masters Division: Born in 1995 or earlier

The total number of swiss rounds and the number of top players that will proceed to the Single Elimination Rounds will be announced at the event briefing before the start of the Tournament.

[ Time Limit: 30 mins per Round plus 3 Turns ]
We have imposed a time limit per round in order to run the event smoothly. If a match has not ended by the expiration of the round time limit, a winner must be determined without delaying the tournament for an unreasonable time.

If time is called during a player’s turn, he or she completes the current turn, we will then add 3 more turns. This is three turns combined not three turns for each player. This will mean that the player who is not active when time is called will get the last turn.

Use the following criteria, in order, to determine the outcome of a game that is unfinished after the three turns. After one of the criteria has been met, none of the others are applied.

(1) If one player was late to the match or was away from the match, without a judge’s permission, for any period of time during the round, that player loses the match. The judge must have been made aware of this absence in advance of the end of the match. If both players meet this criterion, ignore this tiebreaker.

(2) If both players were on time to the match and were not away from the match for any period of time, the judge determines the winner based on the number of Prize cards that each player has remaining. The player with the fewest Prize cards remaining wins the match.

(3) If both players have the same number of Prize cards remaining, the current game continues, starting with any in‐between turn effects that take place after the last completed turn, if necessary, until a Prize card is drawn. The player drawing the next Prize card is considered the winner of the match and the match ends.

[ Players Rating and Ranking ]
The City Championships series will have a K-Value of 16. For more information on how the K-Value affects your Premier Rating, please see the Ratings and Rankings FAQ.

Re: Pokemon TCG City Championship SG 2010

Hi Guys,

In case you have any questions regarding this event, please post it here.

Q) Why is there a limit on the number of players who can take part in this event?
A) As we only have a limited amount of space allocated by Tampines Mall, we can only accommodate so many players at any one time. If the amount of players who registers for this event exceed this limit by 50% or more, we will most probably have to hold a Qualifying Round right before the actual event.

As previously discussed with the community, we would like to accommodate all the interested players. We initially though that we can hold 2 flights of players on 2 separate day, but I lately realized that it cannot be done due to multiple factors, both internal and external.

I ask for your understanding, and I sincerely hope for the best.

Re: Pokemon TCG City Championship SG 2010

Any chance that the Masters div tourney will be held on Sunday as well? The whole bunch of us (4 of us Masters div players) will be overseas on 18 dec but will be around on 19 dec. Thought it'd all be held over 2 days... What a pity can't go :(

Re: Pokemon TCG City Championship SG 2010

Ho-Oh / Lugia Playmat? I though that is for Player Rewards?

The dates are pretty much fixed. Its Saturday for Masters and Sunday for Juniors & Seniors. Although there is a chance that Single Elimination Rounds for the Masters will be held together with the Juniors and Seniors on Sunday. That is awaiting confirmation.

I see.

I don't believe the Playmats are Door Gifts, as it must have costed USD$20 for each of them. It's most probably Extra Prizes.

For our Cities, we have the Cap and the Ho-oh / Lugia Hardcover Ring File for 1st, 3rd and 4th placed winners in each division.

It's not an open area, it's still indoors. Tampines Mall doesn't have roof access.

Kinda sad that we can't use the 1st floor atrium though, it can accommodate more.
