CaptainCon is proud to announce the launch of the Guild Ball CaptainCon Cup Circuit. What exactly is that? Well, only an awesome year-long Guild Ball Event.
At CaptainCon 2018 the Guild Ball CaptainCon Cup final on Sunday will be open to 16 players vying for the top title. Eight of those players will qualify during the Saturday tournament at CaptainCon. The other eight will earn their place throughout the year in the Circuit. Anyone can participate in a Circuit tournament where he/she will earn points based on size of the event and placement in the event. The 8 people with the highest points total on January 1, 2018 will be automatically qualified for the Sunday CaptainCon Cup tournament at the convention.
Any game store, club, or convention can be part of the Circuit and host up to two games during the year. All you need to do is email us at CaptainConCup@gmail.com at least 3 weeks before the date of your event with the information requested on the second page. We will confirm you’re in the circuit and post all upcoming events on the CaptainCon website. You must also advertise you event as part of the CaptainCon Cup Circuit.
After your event, the Pundit or event organizer must email us his report within a week. We will take care of posting the results and tracking the leaderboard on the CaptainCon.com website and Facebook.
Players will earn points in the Circuit based on how they place in participating tournaments and the number of people who played in the event as follows:
|Number of Players||Points Earned by Rank/Place|
A tournament MUST have at least 8 players in the first round to qualify. If you have eight or more players and players drop, your event still qualifies, but the players who drop get zero points.
In the event that two or more players are tied in Circuit points on January 1st the tie will be broken by looking at the numbers of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes for each.
Game store and clubs can run two tournaments per year, but they must be at least 3 months apart. We would prefer 6 months between events, but let’s see how year one goes. Conventions can designate one tournament as a CCCC event.
You can run any type of tournament you want. We want you to have fun. Different areas enjoy different formats.
