I'm posting this mostly for archival purposes, since the info has already been well publicized. Props to Kyle for taking the lead on this one!

ETERNAL STRUGGLE #15! BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

WHEN

Sunday, June 25, 2016

Entry fee is $10.00.

Registration is from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
Tournament starts at 12:30 pm*

*This is important. We want to start on-time at 12:30pm. So please arrive early, fill out your decklists before 12:30 p.m. and be ready to go.

WHERE

Wonko's Toys & Games
13776 N Hwy #116
Austin, TX 78750
(located next to O'Reilly Auto Parts)

Wonko's has several High end cards available such as duals, fetches, Goyfs, etc... and will be offering a 15% discount on all singles purchases the day of the event. This discount also extends to singles purchases made with store credit. Wonko's has plenty of free parking. If you need to purchase cards for this event, please do so before the event. We like to start on time.

Wonko's is not officially involved with running this event. Eternal Struggle tourneys are player-organized, unsanctioned meetups that make use of the store's free space on Sundays.

TOURNAMENT INFO:

As always, we are allowing an UNLIMITED number of playtest cards (commonly referred to as 'proxies'). We will not charge people for use of these. Playtest events cannot be sanctioned, but this event will be run at Regular REL.

Decklists will be required! We will post the top decklists on ATXMTG.net and other websites. To save time, consider printing your decklist out the night before.

Players are encouraged to consult the rules for Vintage deck construction before registering:

ROUNDS AND PRIZE STRUCTURE

Rounds

The number of rounds will be determined by the number of players we get with a cut to top 4 (or 8 depending again on number of players). In top 4 or 8, highest seed will have the choice to play or draw.

0 - 8 players = 3 rounds, no cut
9 - 16 players = 4 rounds, cut to top 4
17 - 32 players = 5 rounds, cut to top 8
33 - 64 players = 6 rounds, cut to top 8
65 – 125 players = 7 rounds, cut to top 8

Prizes

This event offers 100% full payout - the Cabal will use all the entry fees to purchase shares of Wonko's store credit. This store credit may be used to purchase any of the shop's card singles, supplies, sealed products, toys, games, or entry into any tournaments at the store.

To repeat, 100% of the entry fees collected will go to the prize pool! Prizes will be paid out to the top 4 or top 8 and the breakdown is as follows:

1st = 40% of the prize pool*
2nd = 25% of the prize pool*
3rd = 20% of the prize pool*
4th = 15% of the prize pool*

If and only if we cut to top 8:
5th - 8th = $10 each (entry prize back)

*If we cut to top 8, 5th - 8th will receive their entries back in store credit and the remaining credit in the prize pool with go to 1st - 4th at the percentages listed above.

PLAYTEST CARDS

We are very particular about the kinds of playtest cards (again, commonly known as 'proxies') that players may use in our Vintage tournaments. Please see the Eternal Struggle Playtest Card Rules for more information.
