Rules Enforcement Levels (REL) are a means to communicate to the players and judges what expectations they can have of the tournament in terms of rigidity of rules enforcement, technically correct play, and procedures used.

Judges

We will play at Regular REL. Organizers & Judges together will be there to make sure that everything flows; to answer any rules questions, or solving weird board states and disagreements.

Regular REL

Most Magic™ players play for fun and see a tournament as a social event. Regular Rules Enforcement Level encourages a welcoming atmosphere and friendly competition. Your demeanor should reflect this, whether you are playing, judging or both. Players and judges are encouraged to help one another at appropriate times, such as during deck construction or between matches. Judges are the last word when a dispute or question arises, and we should be as impartial and diplomatic as possible. Source: magicjudges.com

More details about Pairings

Pairings

Pairings will be generated using SWISS Rules, considering a number of playable rounds determined by the total number of players.

Rounds:

  • 09 to 16 players = 4 rounds;
  • 17 to 32 players = 5 rounds;
  • 33 to 64 players = 6 rounds;
  • 65 to 128 players = 7 rounds;
  • 129+ = 8 rounds.

Top 16, 8, or 6 will be calculated, depending on the total number of players.

New rounds (and therefore pairings) will be played as soon as all players played theirs.

Each round will be 50 minutes
