World Domination '99 Official Rules
0) For a tournament to qualify for WDQ/WD eligibility, it must conform strictly to each of the following items. Failure to comply means the WD Committee has the option to not include results from the event in WD '99.
1) The official TRC/DCI Tournament Rules must be followed, with modifications and additions as below.
2) The format for WDQ (meatspace plus possibly IRC) will be Sealed Deck: one starter and two boosters (one each 1.0 and 2.1).
3) The format for WD round 1 (meatspace plus IRC) will be Sealed Deck, too (possibly with new cards for each round).
4) The format for WD Finals (on IRC) will be Sealed Deck plus Unlimited Constructed. (For the determination of the IRC "sealed decks" the generator by yours truly will be used. There will be all new decks each round.)
5) All tournaments must use scoring by GMP (1 point per game win, 1
point for the match win) and round robin (up to 4 players) / Swiss Pairing
as described below.
a) Tournaments with 4-8 players will have 3 rounds, with 9-16 players 4 rounds, with 17-32 players 5 rounds and so on. In WD round 1 at least 4 rounds are to be played (except when only 4 players take part). The Finals will have 3 rounds Sealed and 3 rounds Constructed (two independent Swiss tournaments, played in parallel).
b) Players are paired randomly during the first round.
c) Players are paired randomly with other players with the same record (total GMPs) in each successive round.
d) If there are an odd number of players with a certain record, a random player having the next lower record is bumped up.
e) If there are an odd total number of players, the lowest player (who has not got a bye before) gets a bye. A bye is counted as the average of the player's results from the other rounds (possibly changing its value after each round). A round 1 bye is counted as 1.5 GMP for the pairing of round 2.
f) For the final result tiebreakers are used in the following order: opponents' total GMPs, opponents' opponents' total GMPs, agenda point difference.
6) Every WDQ event must take part between March 12 and April 11 (exceptions only due to extraordinary circumstances).
7) Every WDQ tournament should be registered with the TRC at least three weeks in advance. To register, the date, time, and location (including country, city, and street address) of the tournament must be submitted to the WD Committee. Confirmation of registration will be within 72 hours. To get DCI sanctioning (and DCI prize support) the DCI must be contacted directly.
8) Detailed results (including all single game results as well as name, country, city, and street address of each player) of a WDQ event must be submitted to the WD Committee within two weeks after the tournament and not after midnight GMT, April 18, 1999. Confirmation that results were received will be sent within 72 hours.
9) A WDQ event must have a minimum attendance of 4 players. At least the same 4 players must complete play in every round. Games called for time are considered complete.
10) A judge of a WDQ/WD event may play in his own tournament but is urged not to do so. (If the judge is playing, there will be no DCI sanctioning for that tournament.) If places are limited in WDQ/WD IRC events, judges of meatspace events will take precedence.
11) The top 3 from WD '98 plus the top 3 each from the UK, French and German Nationals '98, the North Western Regionals '98 and the Brazil Nationals '99 are prequalified for WD round 1.
12) Players prequalified for WD round 1 may *not* play in WDQ (but may serve as judges...).
13) A player may not play in more than one WDQ event.
14) From a WDQ tournament of n players the top n/4 players (rounded down) advance to the first round of WD. (4-7: 1 player, 8-11: 2, 12-15: 3, 16-19: 4, ...)
15) A player qualified for WD round 1 is free to chose the WD round 1 event of his liking (IRC places may be limited, with WD round 1 judges taking precedence).
16) There will be a total of 8 WD round 1 tournaments (probably 6-7 in meatspace, 1-2 on IRC) with times and places to be determined after the WDQ attendance numbers are known. (Time frame: June / early July; tentative geographical distribution of meatspace events: 3 each in North America and Europe.)
17) The winner from each WD round 1 tournament advances to the WD Finals. (Runner-up taking his place if necessary.) Two round 1 tournaments may be combined into a "double header", qualifying two finalists. [As Rotterdam failed to draw the expected 14 players, the fourth European finalist was determined by comparing the results of the second placed players in the three European events. Mark Applin from the UK had the best record but withdrew, so Ocke Rörden who had the second best record went to the finals.]
18) The WD '99 Finals will take place on IRC, starting in September.
