Who's excited for #SCGKY?
Our second Team Constructed tournament this year is just a few days away, but to ensure that there aren't any complications or confusion, I'll be going over some of the frequently asked questions we've been receiving in regards to #SCGKY.
What Seat Belongs To Which Format?
This one's simple. Seat A is Legacy. Seat B is Modern. Seat C is Standard. For the graphically inclined, see the following image:
Do Unified Constructed Rules Apply To SCG Louisville?
They do not.
Unlike a Unified Constructed tournament a la Grand Prix San Antonio earlier this year , #SCGKY does allow for card overlap across formats if a team would like to go that route. So, for example, if Caleb Scherer and Gerry Thompson were to team at #SCGKY and Caleb wants to play four copies of Polluted Delta in his Legacy Storm deck and Gerry wants to play four copies of Polluted Delta in his Modern Death's Shadow deck, both players are able to do that.
Am I Able To Communicate With My Teammates?
You are and when done correctly, it can be very beneficial for both you and your team. Asking about mulligan decisions, specific plays to make, or how to sideboard are all allowed. The only communication restrictions in place are if a player leaves the table during a match for any reason, they are no longer allowed to communicate with their teammates.
What's The Match Structure at SCG Louisville?
Each player on each team plays a best two-out-of-three games match where competitive REL rules apply. The first team to win two matches wins the match and their team earns three (3) match points.
What Does Each Team Receive Upon Registration?
What Happens If My Team Doesn't Make Day Two of the Main Event?
My recommendation? Play in one of the three Classics we have on Sunday! Because you're playing Standard, Modern, and Legacy in the main event, we're having three separate Classics on Sunday for those who want to play more of the format that they played on Saturday. And, as usual, for each Classic that a player registers for, they'll receive a free exclusive playmat that corresponds to the format they're playing in.
Will There Be Special Guests at SCG Louisville
What's The Maximum Main Event Seating Capacity?
The Maximum Main Event Seating Capacity for #SCGKY is 350 teams (1.050 players), which is an additional 50 teams and 150 players compared to #SCGBALT. Seats are filling up fast so be sure to register quickly to secure your spot!
How Do I Register For SCG Louisville?!
The registration process for #SCGKY is a bit unique so read along carefully:
2.) After you register, you will be sent an email that will contain a hyperlink to a Google Doc that allows you to submit your team. This process may look familiar to some, as it's the same one that we used for Grand Prix Washington DC in 2016 and #SCGBALT earlier this year.
And with that, all of your questions have hopefully been answered! If they haven't, please check out the #SCGKY Fact Sheet or ask any additional questions you may have in the comments below so that myself, Jared Sylva, or anyone else at StarCityGames can get them answered.
Good luck this weekend!
