1E American National Second Runner-Up 2020

Hey all!

The Return to Farpoint Series had a planned hiatus for August to leave room for Worlds and perhaps Chair's Challenge events, but since that all got broomed, I reached out to Kris and I will be running an ACADEMY Constructed event instead.

For those of you not familiar, Academy consists of C,S, and V rarities ONLY, plus all missions. (And just to be clear, VP Rarity is NOT allowed)

While this event is NOT part of the RTFP series, it IS part of the Subspace Series and is eligible for prizes accordingly!

Kickoff is next Friday (7/31) so it's not too late to sign up!

And don't worry, the Return to Farpoint series will resume in September with a Reflections 2.0 Sealed event! Start planning for that one as well!

Just thought I'd ask,
Michael
So I have two thoughts on this:

1.) The "Letter of the Law" allows for V rarity cards, and as such AWC would be legal. That's the simple answer.

2.) The "Spirit of the Law" says that Rare and Uncommon cards are excluded to give players simpler options while remaining competitive.

Since I'm not playing in this event due to other engagements on the 1E side next month, I could go either way. So I guess I'll put it to the people with the most at stake: the players signed up for this event.

Post "Yes" or :thumbsup: if you think AWC should be legal for this event or "No" or :thumbsdown: if you think it shouldn't. I'll go with Majority rule from registered players, and will break a tie if needed.

Since we're kicking off in 8 days I'll give it through Sunday night then make a final determination based on the responses received at that point.

Is that fair enough?

Hearing no comments pro or con, I've decided that At What Cost?, being a virtual card with V rarity in set 37, WILL be legal for this event.

I guess we'll see how that goes. Personally, I can't say I'm a fan of the decision to make a V-rarity version, but that ship has long sailed, so it is what it is.

We're 48 hours from kickoff and we currently have 3 players registered.

Is anyone else feeling the need to go back to school in August? This may be as close as you get with all of the crazy in the world right now!

It's not too late! Get registered today!

This is my first academy format event. So, I opened up the deck builder to create an academy deck I have a premium membership) and selected the academy filter from the deck type and I am still getting all of the rarities returned (R, U, C, S, V, and VP). Can we be certain this filter is working?

Sounds like it isnt.

Paging Eberlems... Eberlems to the white courtesy phone please...

In the meantime, try filtering the card info field on "contains" [C,S,V] and just ignore any VPs that pop up. That's my best suggestion as a non-programmer.

Also, forgive my ignorance but can we use VP of V cards? For example, Kivas Alpha, Research Binary Star is a V card but it also has a VP version. In a case like this, is either one legal, or only the V version?

Short answer is yes. It's always been the case that any version of a legal card is legal.

What you CAN'T use is all of the VP cards that DON'T have a V-rarity counterparts, so be careful that whatever VP you're putting in your deck actually does have a C,S, or V version.

Let me know if you need any other assistance! :cheersL:
