View Full Version : RR Prelease, Brookfield, WI 10/30!

Yes, that's right! Team Rocket Returns to Brookfield on Saturday, October 30th! :D

We had 25 players for our last prerelease, and I'm thinking we'll have more for this!

By now I'm sure you're all aware of the new prize structure for these events. Regardless of performance, every player gets 4 packs in addition to the 6 for the tourney itself. That's good news for the players who are new to the game or who just don't do well in Sealed Format. They are walking away with 10 packs guaranteed!

This would normally be bad news for players who regularly place in the top 4, or who travel long distances to Brookfield. More prizes are needed to raise the incentive to come out.

Never fear, I have found the solution! I am raising the entry fee from $15 to $20, and using the extra $5 per person for extra prize support! For every 12 players in the tourney, I'll be giving away a whole extra box of the new set!

So, you can't lose! You're guaranteed 10 packs, and you can still

WIN A WHOLE BOX!

This is the easiest and cheapest way for everyone to get all the new cards, so be sure to tell all your friends.

Here's all the info you'll need:

It sounds like a lot of the cards in the set are dark from what people have seen. If the majority of them are dark, or have dark energy requirements, hopefully nintendo sends enough dark energys so each player can have 4 in a deck. I'll assume dark energy will be in the set, but you'd get 2 at the very most if your very lucky.

Rulemaster
09/20/2004, 09:57 AM
i dunno bout that....its gonna be the same rarity as before, not like thats the most important thing in the packs

PokeWisconsin

I assume the modified is R/S on so it can be sanctioned. The set used in the prerelease obviously not be allowed in the modified tournament because they aren't available for retail sale at the time of the tournament.

Broken Lizard
09/22/2004, 03:46 PM
PokeWisconsin is correct.

In order for the event to be sanctioned, it must follow the Floor Rules for Modified. As of October 1st, Modified allows only sets from RS-on.

Also, a new set is only allowed once it is available for sale. This will only happen after all the prereleases are complete. So RR will not be legal for inclusion in decks for the Modified side event.

For confirmation of this, please see PUI's Format Change Anouncement (http://op.pokemon-tcg.com/tournaments/pdfs/FormatChangeAnnounce.pdf) .

Jared, some prize questions:
Will the whole box be winnable for all age groups (i.e. 3 whole box prizes available?)
Will whole whole box be a sealed retail box of RR in addition to the 10 packs?

HypnosProjectHQ
10/03/2004, 06:37 PM
From what was said at league, it would be divided out amongst the age divisions. So if we get 15 in the 11-14 division, then another box could be divided out amongst the top 11-14 players.

Ice'Cold
10/03/2004, 07:26 PM
Just a guess here, but im guessing that every 12 people means an extra box for the 12 people in that age group. I.E. If you have 15 people in 15+, and another 15 in the 11-14 and only 9 in the 10-, you would have an extra box for each age group. Am I correct on assuming that?

Broken Lizard
10/06/2004, 03:04 PM
If there are at least 12 players in an age division, I will give the winner of that division a sealed booster box. If there are more than 12 players in a division, I will distribute additional extra packs to other players near the top of that division.

Any division with fewer than 12 players will be prorated accordingly. Let's say there are 6 players in a division. The winner of that division will get 18 packs (in addition to the four they get just for playing).

Well, Ice Cold has nothing to worry about, a cancelation has just opened a slot for him. I'll be bringing the peeps from Chi-Town up to WI, should be a lot of fun. Hopefully it won't tire me out, am going to the Tecumsah, MI prerelease on 10/31... and then to Rockford 11/6 and Manitowoc 11/7. 4 tournaments in 2 weekends... should be fun!

Anyways, I'd just like to say that my parents won't let me go with the Ennocenti's to Rockford. They say they don't "know you at all", so I'm going to have to beg the Millers. I won't be going to Manitowoc. Why? I just won't have the cash! I doubt going to Rockford now too...

Brookfield though? Will be there! Can't wait to rock up the side event, along with the main event. Like last time? 1st in both? lol. Shall I make a repeat performance? :)

I'm confident that we'll get a few more than last time. Remember, every other prerelease is going by the new prize structure and no additional prize support. Broken Lizard's tournament has A WHOLE BOX as additional prize support AND a modified side event where you can win A WHOLE BOX. If you go to one TRR prerelease, it's gotta be this one!

Beat me and you'll get another card... :pokeball: (I currently have 10 fake cards, should be more by the time of the tournament, though I only make mass copies of a few)

As for Team Brookfield sweeping all 3 age divisions, we'll see what happens. I believe that all the people coming with me from Team Chicago are 15+, with one exception. I'm sure at least one of us will give you all a good challenge... and remember that I'm out to win 2 pre-releases in a row- I won't go down without a fight. :p

We're on track for excellent attendance numbers.

Remember: the more people, the more prizes. For instance, if 48 people show, I'll be giving away 3 boxes over and above the standard prize support.

Hey Enno's! I may have too much time on my hands, but that book Josh made me already payed off. I was able to trade for 2 Electrode ex, 2 Nidoking, 2 Nidoqueen, and 2 Pidgeot last night! I may build a Monarchy to test my other Modified decks against. However, if I do build Monarchy, expect it at your tourney on Sunday because that deck would probably end up being played either by my dad or my brother.

Krenke for President 2004! :p

Fill in "Derrick Krenke" for other. Its that simple. Thats what people did at my school in the mock election. I did get 14% of the entire vote, more than Nader or Kerry actually. :p

My brother has changed his mind and will be coming this weekend as well. We will be there between 10 and 10:30, but most likely closer to 10.

Also, I need to have a meeting with all 10-'s and 11-14's once we get there. I need to make a motion and see if everyone is willing to go through with it. Make sure you meet with me before signing in if you want to get a chip of not only the enhanced prize stucture, but also to show the 15+ peeps what we are made of. ;)

You would have a better chance at winning your age division than winning 15+. I don't see how that would benefit anyone but you Hypno.

HypnosProjectHQ
10/30/2004, 06:50 AM
It benefits all of us. We have NOTHING to lose. I am already 100% sure that Cody, Josh, and I are playing into 15+. Also, people such as Zachary, Chris, and Peter will be the only ones left in the lower divisions. What will they have to lose? 1 or 2 packs? It doesn't make sense to keep those minute prizes when you can go for the gold and automatically get 4 TRR Packs and 2 OP Packs.

Reminder: All 10-'s and 11-14's please see me before signing in. I'd like to bring this "playing up ordeal" to attention. Hopefully you will all do it for your own sake, but if you feel you shouldn't do this, then be my guest and stay in your division.

Broken Lizard
10/30/2004, 07:06 AM
Whether or not a player should 'play up' into the larger 15+ division depends on the player's probability of succeeding there. All of our 11-14 players are probably up to the challenge, but not all the 10- are.

It may be better for some players to remain in their division prize pool.

Please remember that the extra prizes I'm giving are just that, extra.

Everyone will get the standard prizes given at all the prereleases, which are pretty excellent to begin with!.

Hey, I went 6-0 and won the box. It was a real nice day, though I didnt do nearly as well in the modified rounds.

menoknow
10/30/2004, 09:30 PM
In the modified I went 3-1 in swiss then lost to pooka in the finals. I think I drew about 4 or 5 energy and 4 or 5 trainers (2 celio, a vs seeker, and an ancient tomb). In a 23 person tournament, I'll take 2nd anyday. Brookfield's tournaments are definetely the best I've attended so far.

Remember--whoever can make it tomorrow I'm having a sanctioned modified tournament tomorrow at 1pm (reg. starts at 12:30, can start arriving around noon) here in Whitewater. For more details click the link in my sig, PM me, or IM me.

HypnosProjectHQ

I guess I should start my tourney report. :)

Got there, met people as usual, and opened packs. After opening packs I made a deck. Lemme just get to the meat of my report... :p

Round 1 - Cody
Cody got out absolutely... NOTHING. I easily beat him with my 2nd turn Dark Magneton.
1-0; 3 points

Round 2 - Peter
Peter is a cool kid; however, this was a tournament. As usual, I gave Peter his plate of royal ownage of the day.
2-0; 6 points

Round 3 - Adam (Ice Cold)
I could not get set up this game. Even getting both of my Qwuilfish running was not enough to win. He got Dark Tyranitar active and ate me for lunch...
2-1; 6 points

Round 4 - Quinn (SLOW DECK's son
This game was absolutely crazy. I was down two prizes and was able to even things out at one prize to one prize using Dark Magneton to move Energy to useless places on the Bench. When he brought his Rocket's Moltres ex active, I forced him to Retreat by Burning it with Dark Houndoom. He switched out and passed. I was able to Burn the new Active Pokemon as well, and he could not switch. I then switched out for my own Rocket's Suicune ex and prayed that he would get tails for the flip after hitting him for 50. He got tails, and that was game. If it would have been heads, the game would have ended differently. Good game, dude!
3-1; 9 points

Round 5 - Alex
This was an easy game. When I saw him slap a Dark Gyarados on the Bench, I powered my Dark Magneton and ended the game quite quickly from there.
4-1; 12 points

Round 6 - Kyle (Pooka)
Heh. We Ided. :) IDs are my friends! ;)
4-1-1; 13 points

I ended up getting 4th place overall, but 1st in 11-14. That was quite nice!

Following the main event was a Modified event.

Round 1 - Chris
Chris was playing a Gardevoir deck. However, I never allowed him to even get out a Gradevoir of any sort. Team Magma's Groudon took all 6 prizes for me. :)
1-0; 3 points

Round 2 - Zachary
Zachary said he was playing a Magma deck as well. However, it was quite warped. Oh well. :p
2-0; 6 points

Round 3 - Cody
Cody was playing my Monarchy deck, so it was interesting. I was able to take him out within the last minutes of the round.
3-0; 9 points

Round 4 - Nicole
We Ided. Boy, I love doing that! :p
3-1; 10 points

Now there was a cut to top 8. I was 3rd seed, so things went downhill from there...

Top 8 Game - Jeff (menoknow)
Jeff plays Monarchy, so I would be playing against this deck as well. Since I had never yet lost to Monarchy, I was confident with my deck. However, after lasting all 30 minutes playing, he was ahead by 1 prize when time was called. Poor, poor me... if I would have been able to get my next turn, I would have tied it up yet again...

After that miserable loss, I had to play for 6th/7th place against...

6th/7th Place Game - Matt (Rulemaster)
I did not feel good at this point. My Team Magma deck suffered its first loss ever, and I was playing a mirron match. besides that, I had a headache and was starving because it was already almost 7 PM. I dragged the game out, but I got out my Team Magma's Claydol too late to revive from a game I was behind in from the start...

I ended up taking 7th place overall, but I was the highest ranked 11-14 player. That was fine by me.

I had to take apart my Magma deck right after putting away my TRR card. Yes, that means I will be playing something different tomorrow at Whitewater.

Thats about it in a nutshell.

It was a fun tournament, got to meet a lot of nice people. I went 4W- 2L in the main tournament and got 7th place, lots of 4-2 people, 4-1-1, and better- but I feel good about the draft deck that I made, and I know what's out there for tomorrow's Michigan tournament, Rockford, and Manitowoc- I'll have an advantage over some of the people.

The modified tournament was good as well, 4W- 2L again, got 4th this time. I really like this new set and I'm sure others who have seen the cards will agree that this will radically changed modified once it's legal. I look forward to playing at Hobbytown again on Nov 20th. I will have another card to give out then for sure...

10/31/2004, 05:29 AM
Thanks to everyone who came for making it a great day! I had a blast! :)

We had 28 for the prerelease and 23 for the MF side event.

Those with a 3-3 record or better in the prerelease are listed below, in descending order:

Adam
Alex*
Derrick*
Kyle
Matt
Joe*
Jason
Quinn**
Ryan
Rob
Jeff
Cory
Jessica*
Peter
Richard
Abe
Nikki*
Josh*

*11-14 Player
**10- Player

So, let's look at how each age group fared in terms of the percentage of the group going 3-3 or better:

15+: 11 of 17, or 65%
11-14: 6 of 9, or 67%
10-: 1 of 2, or 50%

When we look at the top 8, only 4 are in the 15+, while the 15+ division outnumbered the other two divisions combined by 17 to 11.

I'd say that's a pretty nice showing for the younger age groups! :D

All told, I gave out a total of 11 boxes of TRR yesterday. Please use them to prepare for the City Championship, just 3 weeks away!
