Goody says... #2

I may have to reschedule my match, I'm talking to DB345 via email.

Deco_y says... #3

Wodar taking down another unbeaten team. Excellent.

Supersun says... #4

It's not often that misplaying a land ended up being the difference between going 2-0 and 1-2 XD

Definitely the sign of a close match.

Good games Absin and Wodar.

@Deco_y (Han Solo voice): Don't get cocky.

December 6, 2013 8:54 p.m.

Deco_y says... #6

I put on a good show. Inside I tremble like a leaf.

Deco_y, aka leafs_suck

Skulldrey says... #9

I would love to be a part of this. How can I get involved?

December 7, 2013 12:39 p.m.

tempest says... #10

Deco_y lol

Skulldrey there's not much you can do right now but after born of the gods is released, KrazyCaley might start up another daily draft debate. He will post a thread inviting players to join. Just keep your eyes open for that thread! If I missed anyhthibg caley can fill in the details

December 7, 2013 3:18 p.m.

Deco_y says... #11

We won't have time to put one together before Born of the Gods. It would take too long. I think we're taking a break after THS.

December 8, 2013 2:48 a.m.

TridenT says... #12

I hope nobody is too distraught by the lack of my angsty, anguished groans and moans about poor card draw, terrible plays, and inability to mise bombs.

December 8, 2013 4:47 a.m.

Deco_y says... #13

I am devastated actually :(

December 8, 2013 1:37 p.m.

tempest says... #14

Deco_y, why wouldn't we have enough time? surely, we'll finish all the matches in 2 months

December 8, 2013 9:32 p.m.

actiontech says... #15

The drafting and deckbuilding process takes about 40 days give or take. Then the matches are around another 6 weeks give or take. The process takes a long time Tempest.

December 8, 2013 9:37 p.m.

tempest says... #16

but we're already on round 2. after this, there's still 6 rounds. so, assuming each round takes a week, we'd finish this DDD with 2 weeks to spare. is that not enough time?

December 8, 2013 10:34 p.m.

actiontech says... #17

I don't know; I'm not on the admin side of this thing. I know there's a lot of managing for Caley. Besides the next big draft shift will be when the Theros cycle is complete and we draft one pack of each Theros/Born of the Gods/Journey into Nyx =)

December 8, 2013 10:42 p.m.

tempest says... #18

i wouldn't mind having all of T/O play against caley's friends though. that was fun and it brings the community into one whole after splitting it up for these DDDs

December 8, 2013 11:15 p.m.

I'm with tempest on that. The split DDD format is great. I don't want to abandon it. But I would like to see the old format every now and then. There's more debate and therefore more learning going on.

December 9, 2013 11:47 a.m.

KrazyCaley says... #20

@Tempest - A DDD run in this fashion takes about at least a week to set up, 40 days or so to draft, another week to prepare for matches, and a variable amount of time, usually just shy of two months, to do all the matches. That's a total of about three months, pushing four, and we have about five and a half playing rounds left in this one, meaning we'll probably finish at some point in January, especially given the holidays. We would not be able to do an intermediary DDD before Born of the Gods comes out, alas.

As for doing DDD in the old style, that was a terrible burden that I placed on my friends, who were glad that they weren't going to have their time presumed upon any further when we switched. Also, most of them can't or won't stream. I feel like we get better information here; we know the rationale behind EVERY pick, not just a raw draft list. Still, the old way did have its merits. I'll think about what we can do to capture the good stuff from the old method.

December 9, 2013 4:30 p.m.

tempest says... #21

we could have a draft with T/O against voluntary T/O individuals. that provides full rationale and only 7 members are excluded. that does provide other problems though... still, its an idea

December 9, 2013 8:18 p.m.

Supersun says... #22

Might be interesting if instead of an observation group they are just the 8th member and mass vote on cards like before.

There's obviously room for cheating, but I'm not exactly sure what's the point of cheating in an optional learning exercise.

December 10, 2013 2:33 a.m.

Deco_y says... #23

Because some people place the act of winning above all, especially when it comes to magic.

December 10, 2013 2:46 a.m.

tempest says... #24

so sad when that happens. takes the fun out of the game

December 10, 2013 4:25 a.m.

Deco_y says... #25

And so 2 undefeated remain.

December 12, 2013 1:42 a.m.

actiontech says... #26

I choose YOU Deco_y!!!

December 12, 2013 8:49 a.m.

actiontech says... #27

For those interested round 3 between myself and Deco_y is scheduled for tonight (Friday the 13th!) @ 10:30PM Central. Hopefully Caley will be able to stream it.

December 13, 2013 12:05 p.m.

Goody says... #28

Didn't Caley ask for no round 3 matches to be scheduled today?

December 13, 2013 12:14 p.m.

Deco_y says... #29

Yea it's scheduled for next friday, not today lol

December 13, 2013 12:31 p.m.

actiontech says... #30

Haha yeah oops my bad.

December 13, 2013 12:52 p.m.

Darkness1835 says... #31

@KrazyCaley- I would say more postmatch feedback from the deck pilots after they play would go a long way with this. In the traditional method with your friends, there would be a short summary of their thoughts on the match, after each match. This would be hard without giving too much information to opponents who have yet to play each other, but something more than just posting results and a summary at the end of it all would be nice.

December 14, 2013 3:46 p.m.

Agreed Darkness. While I really like the team format the biggest downside is a lack of match comments (outside of the videos, which I don't have time to watch ALL the matches).

December 14, 2013 4:56 p.m.

KrazyCaley says... #33

DeckBuilder345 - Where are you at?

Also, thanks for the comments, everyone! Remind me of your ideas after this one is done; I like a lot of these and don't want to forget about 'em!

December 14, 2013 10:32 p.m.

Chubbub says... #34

What happened with the Deckbuilder345 vs. Goody match last night?

December 15, 2013 8:19 a.m.

Goody says... #35

He didn't show up, so I'm trying to see if we can do it today. Haven't heard from him yet.

December 15, 2013 2:24 p.m.

sewellius says... #36

Am I missing an article? It seems like a number of teams are scheduling/playing round 3 already but I don't see anything to track when it is happening. I can't actually access Absinthman's master sheet from work so my guess is that is what everyone is using.

If we're still officially on round 2 in order to stay on track for Goody vs DeckBuilder345, but getting extra matches done while we wait, I can understand. It just means I've missed out on the extra matches, which is a bummer.

December 17, 2013 11:18 a.m.

actiontech says... #37

Tonight at 9:30 central time will be the epic collision of the final two undefeated teams: Deco_y vs actiontech! Hopefully KrazyCaley will be streaming!

December 17, 2013 11:23 a.m.

Goody says... #38

Me and deckbuilder have completed our match, he won 2-1

December 17, 2013 11:40 a.m.

Deco_y says... #39

Article updated.

December 17, 2013 12:37 p.m.

Absinthman says... #40

Hi guys, I've been away for a few days and when I looked at the sheet, I saw that it has been updated with recent results. Thanks for using it. However, there were also some garbage numbers added by unknown user that I had to get rid of. Please take care when editing the sheet and don't insert false values there.

I added the results of Goody's match against Deckbuilder which were missing and the scheduled matches that I know of right now.

December 17, 2013 12:42 p.m.

KrazyCaley says... #41

And I will update the actual article.
