We’ve got some changes to our store, regarding weekend closing times, and our MTG tournament times and specifications. These changes will be effective as of the week beginning on Monday, January 19th, 2015 (the weekend after the Fate Reforged Prerelease):
New Weekend Store Hours*
- Friday: 11:00 am to 12:00 midnight. (Previously 10:00 pm)
- Saturday: 10:00 am to 12:00 midnight. (Previously 10:00 pm)
- Sunday: 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. (Previously 6:00 pm)
*These changes are in order to accommodate our new MTG schedule below.
New MTG Tournament Schedule
- FNM (SFM Points) on Friday evenings at 6:30 pm (no change). $6.00 Standard, and $12.00 Draft, rotating weekly.
- Legacy* on Saturday afternoons at 1:00 pm. $10 Entry.
- Standard (SFM Points) on Saturdays at 6:30 pm. $6.00 Entry.
- Modern on Sundays at 3:00 pm. 15 Proxies. $10.00 Entry.
*We’ve seen a large demand for Legacy in our store, however, much of the interest has come from would be new Legacy players. As such, we’ve decided to start our Legacy tournaments as non-sanctioned, with a very large starting point of 40 proxies allowed. Systematically, the max proxy number will decrease every month, by 4 cards, until we get to 20 proxies, at which point, we’ll reevaluate the option of continuing to decrease proxies, or to keep proxies altogether.
New Prize Support Structure
- After considering the reason why our store only cut to the top 4 after 17 entry participants in the past, and coming to no explicit conclusion or justification as to why we did, I’ve decided to begin cutting to top 8 once we reach 17 entrants, as it is the standard, and it’s a format that I personally agree with. With this, our prize support structures have been rewritten, to adjust to the new playoff cuts.
