|Initial Step:||List of Archetypes||List of Tags|
(as many as you want)
Under "Players and Wins", enter the username of every player alphabetically.
List of Archetypes
|Shops||Eldrazi||Dredge||Fish||Oath||Paradoxical||Xerox||Combo||Big Blue||Blue Control||Other|
Click the "Name" field in the event on MTGO to sort the list of players alphabetically.
|Eldrazi||Eldrazi||List of Tags||Taxing||Eldrazi||FOW||Mentor||Blue Control||Oath||Eldrazi||Shops||Storm||Combo||Dredge||Pyromancer||Big Blue||Vault/Key||Ravager||Paradoxical||Null Rod|
Don't delete *BYE*, but delete the example data with diophan, chubbyrain, and luckyplayer.
Copy/paste the list of usernames (excluding *BYE*) to each swiss round sheet which will actually occur (usually 6 rounds).
While the tournament is going on (if you have time):
Enter the results from each round:
Enter the username of each player's opponent.
In the "Result" field, enter 0 for a loss and 1 for a win.
Do not enter anything for the "Archetype", "Subarchetype", or "Tags" fields; these will be autofilled later.
If a player received a bye, enter their opponent as *BYE* and leave the result blank.
If it's clear a player was a no show, leave the result for both them and their opponent blank.
Check the wins and losses in K2-L2 to ensure # of wins is equal to # of losses
Enter results from the top8 similar to the swiss rounds.
Once the tournament finishes:
Enter results from any rounds you haven't yet entered.
Watch replays to determine the appropriate archetype, deck name, and tags for each player's deck.
***When exiting a replay, use the reverse arrow in the bottom left. Closing the window can lock you out of viewing more replays.
Your archetype and tags don't need to be from the list on this sheet--they are merely what we used in one tournament.
Tags should be comma separated (e.g. "Taxing, Shops, Ravager")
If after watching a few replays you are still unsure about some tags (e.g. you cannot tell if an eldrazi deck plays null rod), note that in the F column.
Be as descriptive as possible for the deck names.
After watching enough replays, I'll look at what people played and adjust the list of archetypes and tags if necessary.
***Adjust archetype and tags on this sheet. Everywhere else will auto update using formulas.
Try to keep the number of archetypes to exactly 9. Archetypes and tags with 0 decks in them are fine.
If you increase the total number of tags let us know because we need to quickly update a couple formulas.
Increasing the total number of archetypes is more annoying to rework.
Check for Errors:
Look through the round sheets. Check if an opponent's archetype/tags are filled out. Probable fix: if missing, opponent's name was probably mistyped.
When going through the round sheets, double check the wins and losses in K2-L2 to ensure # of wins is equal to # of losses.
Under "Player and Wins" the S column should be "TRUE" for each player. Probable fix: if "FALSE", one of that player's opponents' archetypes is not on the list of archetypes on this sheet.
Under "Archetype and Subarchetype Breakdown", X11 (total wins) should equal Y11 (total losses)
Also on this sheet, check that the win% matrix makes sense. For example, H14 plus B20 should sum to 100%, since (shops vs. mentor win%)+(mentor vs. shops win%) = 100%
Finding where errors on the "Archetype and Subarchetype Breakdown" come from is usually more difficult. If you can't find the source let one of us know it exists and we can help.
Other than the copying in the initial step, avoid copy/pasting and dragging values. This often messes up the formulas and leads to difficult to find errors. Instead, enter everything manually.
Look at "Players and Wins" and "Round 1" for examples
We're currently not using subarchetypes.
Decklists for the top32 players will be eventually posted by WOTC.
Therefore, if you're short on time the essential information is the round by round results and the information for players' decks not finishing in the top 32.
You need to enter the P9 to see the replays, but anyone can view the round by round results. If you aren't playing but are willing to help, entering in the round results would be very helpful.
Thank you for your help!
