<< ... an informational advance tune sounds ... >> "Well, it's already news! It is confirmed that this year the All-Stars will also be organized! After several months of trials due to rumors that allegedly placed the All-Stars organizers as the cause of having released the virus that had confined us to our homes. According to the prosecution, the reasons they could have were the large audiences that the broadcasts achieved by making everyone stay at home. Finally the judge dismissed the accusation for lack of evidence and this week the announcement of the All-Stars of this year has already appeared. Were they the culprits? We will never know for sure. What we do know is that one more year we have ... ... All-STARS !!!! " Welcome to ALL-STARS 2021! As we know there was a lot of desire, this year we are going to divide it into two parts! From our point of view, aristeially speaking, the year 2020 due to confinement and restrictions has been a year where above all it has been played from home and also mostly in tournaments with many participants. It is therefore difficult to decide which tournaments pass the AllStars like other years (more info on how the previous year was configured here LINK) and which ones do not. So this year the already well-known 24-player All-Stars tie will be invited by the TOP 16 of the AGL3. And those 8 remaining places in the tie? What we had wanted to do until now was face Aristeia's past and present ... This year we are going to give everyone an extra point of motivation and we are going to add a more playful preliminary phase. You are all invited to participate in PRE'ALL-STARS 2021 !!! A tournament of 4 to 5 rounds (waiting to know participants) with 2 weeks duration per round. THE FIRST 6 QUALIFIERS will get an invitation to join those 16 2020 champions and fight for ALL-STARS 2021 !!! The scenarios will be (maybe we will change it): 1 - Capture de flag 2 - Hunter and prey 3 - Scorched hearth 4 - Witchland 5 (if any) - Blitz The start date will be February 27th for the pre-tournament and when it ends, ALL-STARS 2021 will begin. You can join here!!!! https://otm.corvusbelli.com/private/event/info/88e3209c1 The other two participants will be raffled off for broadcasts during the @Vasallus channel so stay tuned! The missions for ALL-STARS will be: (to determinate) Both the preliminary tournament and the ALL-STARS 2021 will be played according to the AGL4 rules but with the following modifications: MOD ALL-STARS + MOD NEOTERRA (OMADON ARENA) + MOD ALL-STARS DECKS + MOD HANDICAP ALL-STARS + 3 SPONSORS Summary MOD TTS32 ALL-STARS 2021 The tournament will be played by TTS. ALL Aristos will be available to each player. The choice will be made by following these steps (Approved by @Lim): - It will be decided randomly who will be player A and who will be B and will proceed with the following order: A 1 ban (blocking an aristo that will affect both your choice and that of the opponent) B 2 bans (blocking an aristo that will affect both your choice and that of the opponent) A 1 ban (blocking an aristo that will affect both your choice and that of the opponent) B 1 aristo (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) A 2 arsitos (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) B 2 aristos (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) A 1 Aristo (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) B 1 ban (blocking of an aristo that will affect both your choice and that of the opponent) A 1 ban (blocking an aristo that will affect both your choice and that of the opponent) B 1 Aristo (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) A 1 aristo (the chosen aristo will be blocked for the opponent) Summary MOD ALL-STARS DECKS To give even more possibilities to this infinite game, we are going to add the creation of decks in this edition. Before starting the game, once the selection of aristos has been made.Players have to choose between: - CORE DECK - STEARLING DECK - T-COMM DECK - ALL-STARS DECK The ALL-STARS Deck is a CORE deck to which the following 4 choices can be made. As indicated in the image, 3 of these choices also involve choosing their corresponding dice cards. @ojodecuervo is preparing a method of choice within the TTS mod that will make this management super fast: D (wait to try it, it adds a very interesting new dimension to the game). Summary MOD HANDICAP ALL-STARS And to finish we are also going to add an extra that tries to balance the potential of all aristos. In the previous image you can see two groups of aristos. These groups are based on the least used aristos according to more than 3000 games registered in @Jinimaru's APP Obviously the community does not use those aristos so much because in general there are others that better fulfill the main functions of the game. With this mod with each choice for your 4 that includes an aristo from one of the boxes, a different card will be added (it cannot be discarded or put into the deck and once used it is discarded from the game) to the players starting hand. << For each aristo you choose from each of those blocks you will get a card that you will add to your starting hand with either [ / Re-roll] or [//] to use during the match. The card with the symbols will add one of the symbols of the player's choice at the beginning of the switch phase after the effects of the stun state >> So while we wait for a review of the balance between aristos we propose this idea and we will see how it works in the tournament. SPONSORS KELTHRET CHOICE: Draw 6, 2 of the cards are placed above or below the deck individually. KROTOS CHOICE: Draw 4, one muligan. FORD CHOICE: Draw 5. Third additional provision In an event of this magnitude, we may find ourselves in situations where a referee's decision is needed. In that case, both @Rodro and @fictor will act as such. Here are the BUGS that are solved: In the previous league, if both players cannot match the time to play and have shown the same desire and availability, the fight will result in a tie at 0 points and 0 frags. In the second phase, in case the game ends in a tie, one more round will be played until that tie is broken. In the case of scorched earth and gates of fire, at the beginning of round 6 all the scoring zones or ziggurats will be unburned and the central zone in case of scorched earth and the scoring ziggurat of round 1 for Fire doors will be the socring zone/zigurat for round 6. The event will open internationally so it is possible that a game will have to be played in a language that is not mastered, if it is a big problem, a volunteer can be asked to join the game while it is being played in spectator mode to act as a translator. The organizers reserve the possibility to readjust the MODS if deemed necessary.
