Welcome to the Star Realms Masters Series!

This is the registration and qualification thread for the Fleets Discipline, while there will be plenty of information contained here, you should make sure to have first read the top post of the main thread:

Star Realms Masters Series – main discussion & announcement thread

Registration
In order to register for this discipline, you will need to own the Fleets & Fortresses digital expansion prior to the start of the Qualification tournament. The expansion will be released on October 15th, which will allow a couple weeks to pick it up. You must also have a Challonge account, which is free. It is best that your Challonge account has the same name as your Star Realms account, but the display name can be adjusted in Challonge to show your Star Realms name in Masters Series related events. To register, follow the link provided below. If your Challonge user name is different, please post in one of the registration threads to let me know what the Star Realms name is that should be associated with the Challonge name. Please make sure that you subscribe to this thread, and leave a thumbs up so I know that you have.

Fleets Qualifier - Challonge Signup Page

The qualification tournaments will start on the Mondays and Thursdays over the course of three weeks; Oct-24, Oct-27, Oct-31, Nov-03, Nov-07, and Nov-10. Fleets is currently scheduled for the November 3rd slot, but this is subject to change.

Qualifier Tournament:
The qualification tournament will happen in two stages. First, there will be a group stage, where groups of 5 players will each play the other members in their group three times each. Players will record either a win or loss with a 3-0 or 2-1 score depending on the results of those three games; final authority scores do not matter. The 2 players with the best records in each group after the round robin will be qualified to compete in the discipline. Ties for a qualification spot will be broken by head-to-head records, followed by total wins, and then record against highest player not involved in the tie. Playoff games may be held as necessary, but can hopefully be avoided. The group winners will score their first 2 trophy points. If the two qualifiers from a group have a tied record, they will each get 1 trophy point.

Starter Tournament:
The qualifiers will also move on to the second stage of the tournament, which will be the discipline starter tournament, a double elimination tournament. As with the other double elimination tournaments in the masters series, matches in the top bracket will be played as best-of-3 games, while matches in the losers bracket will be played as single-games. This is to keep the lower bracket on pace with the upper. The winner of the losers bracket will play the winner of the winners bracket in a best of five, with a one game advantage given to the upper player. The winner receives 3 trophy points, second and third place each earn 2 trophy points, fourth through eighth each earn 1 trophy point.

There will be a separate thread created for the discipline that will be used for the remainder of the series. Players who survive the qualification process will participate in a series of 5 crossover tournaments that will feature Fleets mixed with each of the five other digital expansions, and will then participate in the final Mastery tournament.

So technically, I don't "own" Fleets . . . yet. But guarantee you that I will on Day One of release!

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion I gain strength. Through strength I gain power. Through power I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken. The force shall free me.

Oh, that's right: this is coming out soon. This tournament will interrupt my efforts at finishing whatever madness they come up with in the campaign for that expansion zombie

dlow will be in, regardless

Many thanks for organising this series, Adam - the efforts of tournament organisers are always appreciated, for bringing us entertainment with a structure and goal!!

I'm not sure I 100% understand the structure, but I just have to win in games with vanilla + Fleets, right? I'm in.

To qualify, yes. Just Fleets.. Good ole Type-F.

Assuming you make the cut, you'd have (GF), (1F), (BF), (EF), and (HF) tournaments to compete in as well, in some order.

You should probably make it more clear that all expansions are required. I see it is mentioned later but with the first line reading as above it appears that entry to each discipline does not require the others.

I am sure you have seen the fuss made on this for the legends series.

That said, I think this is a fantastic tournament idea in the way it brings together the different expansions.

Yeah, that is an artifact of copy-paste. Fleets will be released 10/15, but obviously registration is happening now.

I have realized what a pain tracking all these signups will be... and have decided to just host a signup page on challonge. See new instructions in OP with link.

If you have already registered here, going there would help me out, but I can also add you manually later if needed.

Signed up and subscribed for all six. Challonge ID is ciago92 but I changed the displayed name to Ciago which is the SR ID. Should I post this in all six?

TAGames, standing by. I assume that I don't need to post that in all 6 threads (and yes, I will sign up for all 6).

My order of preference (for getting kicked out of full brackets) is:

Most wanted
Fleets
Bases
Promos
Heroes
Gambits
