Greetings Dark Jedi Brotherhood!
As you may have heard, we have a Rite of Supremacy that is slated to begin on May 30th. In order to allow sufficient time for members to sign up for tournaments, I am publishing the sign up forms for the two tournaments I will be running: Jedi Academy and Hearthstone “Core Set” only. Please use the link below to access the document and sign yourself up for one or both.
There will also be one additional competition included in the Event Long Gaming bin that is not one of these two tournaments. This is to ensure that members, both new and old, joining the event in the middle have an opportunity to at least achieve bin participation.
For Hearthstone specifically, one large challenge is the split regional servers. The official answer to how to resolve this has been added to the Supported Games wiki page:
Spoiler, there’s a very good chance my solution is to play half of your games on one region and half on the other. It is my preference that members can resolve these issues themselves in most situations and are free to use other agreements in Hearthstone PvP if desired by both parties.
On the eve of the upcoming Rite of Supremacy, it is a good time to review the Rites of Combat for both our regular gamers and those who venture into gaming activities during the big events.
The place most people find themselves getting in trouble is PvP but it doesn’t have to be this way! Please read through all of the requirements if you are not familiar with them. The biggest items to stay away from are:
Additionally, I’ve added wording back to the RoC regarding setting up all matches during feuds and cooperative events between multiple clans:
Section 2.4 - Setting Up Matches During Clan Feuds and Cooperative Events
a. The Rites of Combat are still enforced, along with additional requirements, during Clan Feuds and Cooperative events. Each of these events is unique and may have additional changes to the rules, beyond what is listed here. These details will be listed with the information for each Gaming Competition, so be sure to refer to those rules and guidelines as well.
b. In a joint or vs. event between two (or more) clans, all gaming submissions must contain at least one player from an opposing team for all match types (PvE, PvO and PvP).
My top goals for this event are for everyone to have fun and stay out of trouble!
I’d like to put out a general call that we should all work to be more respectful of differing opinions, especially as they relate to Star Wars and Gaming, within our community. Without going off on an entire rant, I’d like to propose unofficial guidelines for how we all engage with each other:
If we all agree to start using these simple guidelines, we’ll find that we devolve into less arguing over items that, at the end of the day, are matters of personal preference over a family movie about space wizards and are not going to materially change anything, anywhere, ever.
In all seriousness, we’re all here to have fun so let’s try to be a little more chill with each other.
