Players need to submit their 3 decks for the Strike format before the Main Phase to the organizers. The decks must adhere to Conquest deck rules.

Grand Final

The Grand Final will be played in a Best of 5 matches format, using the Strike format, right after Tournament number 3 listed above.

Players will arrange the matches between themselves, please contact the organizers for more information.

Strike Format

The strike format plays a lot like Conquest and follows the same deck-building rules. However, instead of banning heroes, players alternate banning match-ups until only 3 are left (or 5 in the case of Best of 5 format).

A match-up is a potential match between one of your heroes and one of the opponent heroes.

You know all your opponent heroes in advance, so in this way each player will try to ban their worst match-ups (e.g. if your are playing Elves with Ne’eva you might want to ban the “your Ne’eva vs. your opponent’s Nefaros” match-up because you know you would very likely lose that match).

The players continue banning match-ups (first player A, then B, then A again, etc.) until only 3 or 5 match-ups are left. The remaining match-ups are played, a single game each, and the player with the most games won wins the entire match.

Note: The player that loses the first match-up chooses the next match-up to be played.
