This is somewhat of a tradidion as it is the second tournament in a series that might continue or might be discontinued. To be honest I might just continue this because Charles Klein seems to get so happy from these online gatherings. I will grade the deck pics submitted for this tournament as the quality and layout is about from 0/10 to 10/10.
10 players gathered and this was the standings after the Swiss (Tolaria destroys the standings after the playoffs and adds points from the playoffs to the final standings).
- Mikael Johansson 9p (with 1 bye)
- Florian von Bredow 9p
- Anton Glans 9p
- Danny Friedman 7p (with 1 bye)
- Charles Klein 6p
- Olof Ekstrand 6p
- Seb Celia 6p
- Martin Lindström 4p (with 1 bye)
- Svante Landgraf 3p
- Jonas Stattin 0p (drop after round 1)
Winner - Anton Glans
Deck pic rating: 9.5/10
Not much to complain about here. Lightning is good, you see all cards, everything looks straight, no overlap. The only complaint is the 61th card should be somewhere among the 60 cards.
Finalist - Danny Friedman
|Parfait - UWB prison with all "the good stuff" + Jade Statue|
Deck pic rating: 3/10
First of all, this deck pic kinda gives me migraine. All cards are visible but this is not a sun fan competition. Saved by the overall lighting and picture quality.
3-4th place - Mikael Johansson
|Disco - Trolls are banned from this Disco|
Deck pic rating: NA
Not gonna rate my own deck pic.
3-4th place - Florian von Bredow
Deck pic rating: 8/10
Lighting is good, sideboard is clearly separated, the 61th card is not outside the "box" of the main deck. Easy to count the cards, personal preference is I don't like overlap of the main deck cards.
5th place - Charles Klein
Deck pic rating: 4/10
First of all this is in 4:3 and not 16:9, learn to turn the phone sideways and Google your phone's camera settings. Lighting is good, all cards are visible but kinda impossible to count the number of cards in the deck easily. And what's up with Americans and sun fans?
6th place - Olof Ekstrand
|Lat-Nam's Heresy - Trike -> copy trike -> transmute trike -> animate trike -> trikelicious|
Deck pic rating: 6.5/10
Very similar deck to Florian's and also similarities in the deck pic. A with weird layout with four cards on the side and assymetry of the sideboard. Lighting somewhat bad.
7th place - Seb Celia
|Mono U - Blue is the color of my true loves eyes|
Deck pic rating: 0.1/10
There is a lot of black space in this ENORMOUS picture and the layout and lighting is terrible.
8th place - Martin Lindström
|The One Deck - Having an alpha collection means you sometimes have to play alpha singleton. To make the deck competitive, I allow myself some proxies. This is version 2.0 - the classical elements|
Deck pic rating: 10/10
Symmetry, visibility, good lighting, every card fully visible. This is how I want my deck pictures.
9th place - Svante Landgraf
|Disco Universe 2.0 - Like Troll Disco but good|
Deck pic rating: 5/10
Really hard to count the number of cards in the deck, unnecessary overlap and lighting is somewhat bad.
10th place - Jonas Stattin
Deck pic rating: 3.5/10
|Åländskt Disco - Ålands Disco Troll|
Every card is kinda visible but annoying assymetry. Impossible to fast count the cards of the deck. A bit of annoying glare also cuts the rating.
This was a fun Saturday in a gathering of 10 players (4,5 Sharks). The tournament was finished around 21 CET but Anton, Seb and me kept it going until midnight with Reindeer popping in around 23 CET. Will probably do this again some time.
