If you happened to stumble here by chance, this is a thread of a tournament exclusively for the Commissioners of the Star Realms League (Season 26), which is NOT an official part of the League itself.

Hello Commissioners, and welcome to the fourteenth Commissioners Tournament!

As always, please check in here and subscribe to this thread to be kept updated.

We have the potential for 13 participants this year. I'll quickly outline the structure for everyone as it works slightly differently from the standard league.

The initial part of the tournament will be a round robin where everybody will play everybody else in one-match rounds. We'll play as many rounds as we need to accomplish this (which is either N-1 rounds or N rounds depending on whether there's a bye player). As this is significantly more rounds than occur in a standard league division, play will be accelerated by posting and playing two rounds at a time.

New rounds will be posted when at least one of the below criteria has been met:
* all matches are complete
* two or fewer matches are remaining at three days or greater
* no player has more than once match remaining at four days or greater

At the conclusion of the round robin, the top 8 players will play in a single-elimination tournament where each round is best two-out-of-three matches. The winner of this will be declared the Commissioners Tournament Champion!

All other standard league rules apply including resolving preference differences and tiebreaker rules.

Once everybody checks in, we'll get the first two rounds rolling.

Any questions or comments, please let me know. Good luck!

I tried clicking more times than I can count, and nothing happened.

We might have 12 or 13. But since we don't want anything unlucky, should that somehow help Patrick win yet another chalice, if we have a bye, I will take the upgrade option.

How long do you think you'll be traveling for?

networktoast def CrankyDay (R2) in what turned into a three-game series.

The first game I should have lost, but a Vent left on the TR allowed me to get the extra combat I needed to do lethal when I only had one authority left, which only happened because of a bad draw for Adam.

The second game, Adam's life gain + scrap outshone my base wall, despite me getting a turn 2 Cutter + Supply Bot. I didn't feel like I could pick up enough damage, and the fact that I lost this game 59 to -1 probably confirms that.

The final game was tense. I took a Freighter over a Cutter on turn 2 to go after CO that was on the TR. I was lucky to have Wrecker fall, so I picked up a Space Station and ended up with them both. I probably would have lost without the Wrecker as the TR didn't really let CO + Freighter shine all that much with no bombs to pick up. But with an abundance of trade, I bought enough damage to win this decisive game.

Great series, Adam!

Was traveling ending today. And for about a week at the end of the month. Most of which I'll be able to continue but there might be slower play at that point.

Dates tbc.

I had meant to say GoodDeck (though I realize even that is not quite accurate with no Y1 promos whistle), but we're welcome to play our match BIGDECK or whatever wacky expansion preferences you prefer.

CrankyDay def. Ominous - GG!

This was an interesting game that I'm still thinking about. I had the cash to buy The Ark in deck two and three (Turn 6, Turn 12) but passed, eventually buying it deck four (Turn 16), but never using it.

I opened 4/4, taking Shuttle and Explorer, and then Ram.
Matt had 3/3, taking Supply Bot, then Defense Bot and Battle Bot.

So he took himself out of the Trade race for Ark on Turn 3, but had the Scrap advantage anyway. I maximized my chance at getting Ark, but would it have been the right answer to his deck.

Immediately on the shuffle, I get Shuttle and Ram and Scouts. I can afford Ark if I scrap Ram, leaving my deck with Ark, Shuttle, Explorer. For some reason, this gave me pause, and I decided I would instead maximize my chance at Ark next deck and keep my Ram. So I bought the Starmarket - which revealed Convoy Bot, which I felt I had to buy, so I scrapped Ram anyway. My other deck 2 buys were Patrol Cutter and Battle Pod.

In the middle of deck three, I pull Patrol Cutter and Shuttle together with Scouts. I can once again afford Ark, and it probably would have been a really good buy here, so this play may have been a mistake. I opted to take Colony Seed Ship directly to hand, and buy the Mega Mech.

I get the Ark into my deck, and Breeding Site, which I am able to Mega Mech for good damage on my penultimate turn, and then finish with Seed Ship Patrol Cutter combo.
