PostSubject: RTA Duel Challenge: "Power of Three"   Tue Apr 09, 2013 10:34 pm

Hello RTA, good to see we're actually getting new members every now and then. Not so long ago we completed an RTA war zone so now I'm issuing another challenge to anyone interested in testing out their deck building skills. Sign-up and read explanation below:

=== Duel Challenge: "Power of Three" ===

- Start of Event Dueling Date: April 17 - ??? (2 week run)
- March 1: Current Advanced List TCG Format.
- A match consists of best 2 out of 3 duels. (1 win = 1 point)
- All matches to be held in Dueling Network (Unrated).
- Timezone Converter: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/to/
- YGO Card Search Engine: http://www.db.yugioh-card.com/yugiohdb/card_search.action
- Each Duelist can only issue a challenge to another Duelist one at a time (until resolved) and only once (and can keep challenging as long as there are other duelists available to challenge; this is to weed out anyone who is idle for long perionds of time). Forum time stamp 48 hour rule apply (meaning: no replies on a challenge is a match win for challenger, 2 points). Points will be distributed according to the total number of wins per duelist (i.e. 2 duel wins = 2 points for that match). Point distribution will be recorded in the table provided below. Duelist with the most points at the end of the challenge wins. Best of luck to all!
- Challenge Rules: As the sign-up list progress, the previous participant listed before the duelist will declare a monster card to be used in three's and to be included within his/her main deck! Last signed-up participant will declare the chosen monster for the first participant. At the end of each duel (when a player reaches 0 LP, totally decks out or a win condition has been fulfilled), the winner must prove having all three monster copies (whether they are in hand, deck, field, grave, banished or used as an Xyz material) to make each win valid or else match is void and win goes to the other player (DN photo snap shot can help here for proving validity, or simply show all three copies in the field).
- No deck list needs to be submitted.
- Last day of sign-up is April 15, Official dueling for points will begin April 17.
- All duel transaction updates are to be posted in this forum.
- Any other suggestions, comments, questions simply post below and I will reply accordingly. I'm mostly available online under RTA chat during the weekday.

- Note: Designated monster cannot be a limited, semi-limited, forbidden, be a normal or a nomi-monster (cards with text that include "cannot be (special/normal) summoned except by..."). It cannot be an Xyz, Synchro or Fusion monster.

welcome to power of three challenge axel and skull. good seeing you participating again axel. now unto axel's question...

Axelablaze: At this point I designate you a monster to be used in three in your main deck (not to be sided out). From there you can do several things:

- Just add those three monsters in any random deck and go from there...
- Build a deck around those monster(s) that maximizes their potential...
- Build a deck that will compensate for their weak points...
- Include those monsters in a deck that can work well with them in it.

And knowing you as a power player from our previous encounter, i decided to give you the opposite this time - Volcanic Shell Very Happy

You are now then to give Skull Servant his designated monster.

Skull Servant: When the next participant signs-up, you will then give him/her your choice of monster for his deck Smile

Last day of sign-up is April 16, Official dueling for points will begin April 17.

This should be a very interesting test of my limited deck-building skills, I hope I get a solid monster to build my deck around!

I've always found this archetype fun, and often effective, so Chaos's designated monster will be Cloudian: Smoke Ball!

good choice skull! for a while was thinking you'd pick out turbulence or nimbusman Very Happy

Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven I revised the challenge ruling to make it more clear: Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

"At the end of each duel (when a player reaches 0 LP, totally decks out or a win condition has been fulfilled), the winner must prove having all three monster copies (whether they are in hand, deck, field, grave, banished or used as an Xyz material) to make each win valid or else match is void and win goes to the other player (DN photo snap shot can help here for proving validity, or simply show all three copies in the field)." scratch

Nice pick chaos, aliens are actually quite powerful in a slow format, but alien hunter is usually one of my last picks in an alien deck monster line-up. should be interesting to see Quan take it on.
