BoM 09 Annecy 2014 Trials, Byes, Sleep-in Special, BoM10 2 Apr 2014 News by: Kevin

 

BoM9 Trials

 

First, we would like to warmly thank the numerous TOs who are organizing Trials for BoM9.

To make it more convenient to find a Trial near you, we've put all the Trials for BoM9 that have been and are to be organized on a Google Maps:

https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/edit?mid=zwq3TJBpEDR0.kHuyZlNKsmyE

 

This map is updated regularly and we plan on keeping it updated for each and every BoM that'll happen from now on.

 

 

Byes at BoM9

 

We've noticed that players Top8ing a BoM were not granted byes for the next Edition. For BoM9, Legacy and Vintage Top4 players from BoM8 (in Paris) will be granted two byes for the Main Event in the same format. Top8 players will get one.

 

 

Last Chance Trials

 

 

Thursday, May 1st will be the last day for you to earn byes for BoM9 Legacy Main Event.

Please remember that the Infinite Trials package is only available online. We still have some left but don't expect to be able to subscribe to it on site!

 

 

We're also pleased to announce that players in the first 6 Trials will each receive a Bazaar of Moxen deck box !

 

 

Finally, all Trial Winners will get free Sleep-in Special in the Legacy Main Event.

 

 

 

 

Sleep-in Special

 

That's it, we're now offering Sleep-in Special at BoM. On top of being allowed to skip the Seat All Players, we'll also provide you breakfast to start the day in the best possible way!

The cost for Sleep-in Special is still the same: 15€ and you can subscribe to it here

 

 

BoM10

 

We've been asked the question many times. There will not be a BoM in Paris this year. The main reason is that bank holidays just don't fit a possible 3-day event Another factor is that you were not thrilled by the location nor by the venue. Unfortunately, this is the only venue that we can afford in Paris so we have to discontinue BoM in Paris.

BoM 09 Annecy 2014 List of BoM9 Trials 19 Mar 2014 News by: Guillaume

 

Here is the full list of the tournaments that offer Byes for BoM9 (May, 1st-May 4th in Annecy)

 

To allow you to double check the number of byes you have, we'll report the names of the Trial winners here. We expect Tournament Organizers (TO) to report us tournaments results within one week. If your name doesn't appear on this list one week after the event, please follow this procedure:

  • Contact your TO first to make sure he has sent us the Trial results. If he does not send us the results, we cannot process anything.
  • If your TO indicates he sent the results, ask him to get in touch with us at trial@bazaar-of-moxen.com.

Note that, for byes to be granted, the tournament must have been successfully reported using Wizards Event Reporter. We cannot be held responsible if the tournament has not been reported to or invalidated by Wizards of the Coast. In such a case, we unfortunately cannot do anything and you'll need to have a discussion with your TO.

BoM 09 Annecy 2014 BoM9 Main changes 11 Mar 2014 News by: superadmin


The Modern Main Event

 

When we've asked for your feedback after BoM8, many of you indicated they were pleased we introduced a Modern tournament at BoM.

At the same time, and after the hint we'd had at GP Antwerp (1600 players), the Modern format is clearly on an ascending slope, as proven by the attendances at GP Prague (1500 players) and the astonishing GP Richmond (more than 4300 players).

 

We've therefore made the decision to promote this format and that's why we've made the decision to set as its top prize a Beta Black Lotus!

[Please note that due to unfortunate circumstances, we have replaced the Alpha Black Lotus by a Beta Black Lotus, since the seller cancelled our purchase. We're nevertheless happy to let you know that the condition of the Beta Black Lotus we have is much better than the Alpha one]

 

 

 

The Legacy Main Event held on a bit more than one day

 

Another recurring feedback after BoM8 showed a regret that, when you were making Day2, you could not take part into the Vintage Main Event or the Modern tournament, while many would have liked to play one of these in addition to the Legacy Main Event.

However, we certainly did not want to go back to a system where you were playing Marathon: The Gathering, with a finals happening at 03:00 in the morning.

This is the system we've been coming with:

  • Depending on attendance, 9 or 10 Swiss rounds will be played on Friday.
  • The single-elimination Top (8 or 16, depending on attendance) will be played on Saturday morning at 08:30, after a resting night of sleep. Players competing on Saturday morning will receive up to 2 byes to allow them to join the Modern Main Event or the Legacy tournament.

 

Gradual Entry fees

 

We believe our BoM8 innovation of creating different entry fees to encourage you to register in advance so that we could plan ahead of time was a good idea and will therefore run that system again.

Some of you mentioned that the time frames were suboptimal, and the supportive arguments raised made sense. We have tkneThis time, here is the structure we'll use:

 

  • Until Sunday, April 27th, online registration will allow you to save 10€ on the Entry Fee. As usual, we want to incentivize and reward those who commit to the event and help us preparing it as best as possible.
  • In the last 3 days leading to BoM9 (until Wednesday evening), you will still be able to register online with a 5€ discount.
  • Same goes to on-site registration until the day before the event you want to compete in. Indeed, we want to encourage you to register before the actual morning of the event. We know you all love timely events with as little delay as possible and want to reward those who help us doing that.
  • Finally, those who will choose to come in the morning of the event will be charged with the full Entry Fee.

 

90% of the players did register online for GP Paris. We hope to see an even higher number for BoM9. We believe we are offering a structure that creates a win-win exchange where we can plan more and you pay less! These two elements lead to the exact same conclusion: Everybody will spend an even more awesome week-end!

 

 

Details on the Main Events can be found right below. (or here!)

BoM 09 Annecy 2014 The first pieces of BoM9 schedule! 6 Mar 2014 News by: Kevin

 

First, thank you all for joining us at GP Paris. We believe you've had a blast there and we're excited to welcome you to BoM9, which we will hold in Annecy in about two months, from Thursday, May 1st to Sunday, May 4th!

 

The venue is the same as last year:

Complexe d'animation

2000, route d'Albertville

74320 Sevrier

FRANCE

 

 

 

A new Main Event

 

As usual, we're doing our best to innovate so as to offer you an always better experience playing Magic!

 

Following this trend, we've crafted a brand new Main Event for BoM9! Its format is Modern and we'll be delighted to offer the winner no less than an Alpha Black Lotus.

 

 

 

One Main Event each day!

 

Adding Modern will allow us to run one Main Event each day!

  • Thursday will feature a Sealed PTQ.
  • The Legacy Main Event will be on Friday.
  • We've decided to place the Modern Main Event on Saturday.
  • And as usual, the Vintage Main Event will take place on Sunday.
  • Finally, we'll hold two Duel Commander events on Saturday and Sunday.

 

 

Your favorite format each day!

 

We've asked for your feedback after BoM8. Amongst the many useful feedback you've provided, we've noticed that many of you expressed desire to play their favorite format all week-end.

We've listened to you and will therefore hold one tournament in each of the following formats each day: Legacy, Vintage, Modern and Limited.

 

We can already announce that Legacy, Modern and Vintage Side Events will all be trials for either BoM9 or BoM10's corresponding Main Event (depending on the day they take place).

 

Details will soon be available on our Side Event schedule page!

BoM 09 Annecy 2014 Organizing a BoM Trial 24 Dec 2013 News by: Kevin

Dear tournament organizer,


Once again, we are pleased to give you the opportunity to organize a Trial for Bazaar of Moxen inside your shop.
BoM9 will take place in Annecy from May 1st to May 4th 2014.


We are convinced that organizing Trials for BoM9 is a great opportunity for you to attract new players to your shop, no matter which format they prefer.

 

 

WHAT IS A TRIAL?


A Trial is a Magic tournament with special prizes. The winners gain "byes" for a specific tournament.
A player with X byes doesn't need to play the X first rounds of a tournament and is considered as having won them automatically.

 

 

TRIAL ORGANIZATION ELIGIBLITY


Trials may only be organized by WPN TOs or independent TOs affiliated to a WPN TO.
Trials may be organized from Saturday 4 January 2014 to Sunday 20 April 2014.



AVAILABLE FORMATS


Each TO may organize up to ONE trial in each of the following formats:
- Legacy
- Vintage
- Modern


Trials grant byes for the Main Event of the corresponding format. Players do not get to choose which tournament they get byes for.



NUMBER OF BYES AWARDED


Each validated BoM Trial will offer 2 byes to the winner and 1 bye to the finalist.
Byes are not cumulative. (Winning one bye twice does NOT result in having two byes)



REQUIREMENTS


Considering the importance of having byes in a given tournament, BoM trials are serious tournament that MUST be run at Competitive REL and Head Judged by a Certified Magic Judge (level 1 or higher). The name of the judge should be entered in WER.
Failure to comply to these requirements may result in the invalidation of your trial and cancellation of the byes.


Warning: Neither the TO nor the judge may play in the Trial. If that happens, the Trial will be automatically invalidated by Wizards of the Coast and byes will be cancelled.
Note that if the TO is affiliated to a shop, that shop's TO cannot play in the Trial either.



SANCTIONING PROCEDURE


In order to make the process for sanctioning your trials smoother for everybody, we need you to follow these steps:

  • Create and sanction your event using Wizards Event Reporter (WER).
    Both date and format must be exact and cannot be changed afterwards.
  • Send an e-mail to trial@bazaar-of-moxen.com at least 3 weeks before your event with the following information:
    • Tournament sanctioning number:
    • WPN Shop's name:

If you would like your trial to appear on www.bazaar-of-moxen.com, please also provide us with:

  • Contact e-mail adress:
  • Event Date:
  • Event City:
  • Event Country:

Because Wizards of the Coast needs to manually modify the status of your tournament to make it a BoM Trial, it is essential that we receive your information at least three weeks before your event. As soon as we have confirmation of the status change by Wizards of the Coast, we will let you know. If you plan on running one in January, let us know and we'll go over the possibilities for reducing that duration.


Note that making this timing possible allows referencing your tournament as a Bazaar of Moxen trial in WotC's Store locator.


We recommend that you put a link to http://www.bazaar-of-moxen.com in your announcements so that your players know what is BoM and why they definitely should try to have byes for BoM8.

 

 

REPORTING PROCEDURE

  • Once your tournament is completed, upload it using WER. Trials MUST have been processed by Wizards of the Coast to grant byes to players.
    No exception to this rule will be made!
  • Send us an email to trial@bazaar-of-moxen.com with the following information:
    • Tournament's Sanctioning number
    • TO (or shop)'s name
    • Name, First name and DCI Number of the winner
    • Name, First name and DCI Number of the runner-up

We will publish a list of the players with byes on this website.
