    Googleplex Rule #3: Wear your heart on your cheek

    People are always coming up with ways in which they think the format could be "fixed". One that was recently discussed in a Facebook group was returning to the old first turn rules. So, I'd like to see how that would affect the format and a tournament seems the perfect idea.

    So this is a BLW-PLF tournament with the additional rule;
    • If you go first in the game, you cannot play any Trainers (Items, Supporters, Stadiums, Tools etc) during you first turn.
    (I didn't really play pre-BLW rules, so if I miss anything/ put the wrong thing, drop me a PM to let me know!)

    I'll take in decklists as soon as you sign up too please, via PM. Signups maximum will be whatever the limit is for unofficial tournaments. It'll be swiss rounds and might have a cut, depending on players.

    1. SoldierSpirit
    2. Falco431
    3. PokemonPlayer101
    4. Vablakes
    5. MultX
    6.
    7.
    8.

    I don't really see the need to ban anything in this format but if there's something you think needs banning, post below. I was also considering making something like Call Energy legal as otherwise, if you start first and don't have the active Pokémon you want, you might be pretty stuffed.

    PP101 The Swarm for 3 seconds then accidentally left

    Don't use spoilers, please. ;)

    Anyway, I guess I'll join.

    SoldiersSpirit I will defend my Kingdom.

    I think the first turn rules back then apply to both players. Meaning on each of their first turns trainers can't be played...not just who goes first but I may be wrong.

    PP101 The Swarm for 3 seconds then accidentally left

    Nope, only the player who goes first.
  8. SoldiersSpirit

    SoldiersSpirit I will defend my Kingdom.

    I stand corrected :p

    99% sure pre-BW included choosing who goes first if you win the flip

    Nope. Only in topcut games 2/3 like now.

    Although honestly this idea for a tournament seems quite pointless. All it really effects is donking, and since we don't have Call Energy, not by much.

    Ill give it a try. I loved how the first player was not allowed to play any trainer whatsoever on their first turn. Count me in please

    MultX I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE TREVOR DECK

    I have a question - can player choose who goes first/second or it's decided by flip?

    It's decided by flip.
