Early Bird Gateway Tournament

Getting in the earliest(1) possible Gateway in Standard tournament season off with a bang!

The event starts at 10 AM PST at will be 6-8 rounds of single sided swiss (35 minutes each) with a 30 minute break after round 6. Round count will follow Nisei OP suggestions.

One goal of this tournament is to get the next round of Project Crow decks up an running, so we are strongly encouraging people to share the decklists after the conclusion of the event. Lostgeek is hoping to go over them afterwards and begin to help new players transition into standard.


You must join the Nisei Online Event Hub Discord to participate in this event, but voice chat is not required (though will be encouraged).

There will be a player meeting in #online-gnks-1 15 minutes before the start (so 9:45 PST). Registration will close 5 minutes before the start (9:55 PST).

Please fill out this registration form.

There is no entry fee (and currently no prize support)

Card Legality

The legality for this tournament will follow the Gateway Standard format, and using the 21.04 ban list. Gateway rotates the SanSan Cycle and Honor and Profit big box. Salvaged Memories also rotates with Gateway (if that doesn't mean anything to you, don't worry about it). Additionally System Update 21 rotates System Core 19.

Rules Notice

Edit: Rules very kindly put out a document summarizing the rules changes well. The rule changes outlined here will be in effect for this tournament.

Given that CR 1.5 is delayed but cards were tested with a specific run timings that have been posted. The run timings for this event will be the ones outlined in this LtP Run Guide. There are a few changes introduced, the biggest one in actual play is that there is now a paid ability window before the approach step (after the runner has committed to accessing the server), but no PAW after the approach step. This is particularly relevant for Manegarm Skunkworks.

Jinteki.net may not have the approach window implemented properly. Because this is a casual tournament do the best to recover a gamestate issue that might occur due to this, and contact a judge if you have any questions.

Additionally a rules change Nisei implemented was allowing someone to overwrite their console with another console. That will be allowed in this tournament.

Results Reporting

To report results please use this form (will be posted/pinned in the #online-gnks-1 as well)

Single Sided Swiss

This event will be single sided swiss. The rational for why and how can was written about here. On the day this will function like a regular tournament. Every round you will get a pairing, where you will be assigned both an opponent and a side. Please play only the assigned side. Every round you will be matched to people close in strength of schedule and in a way to minimize the number of people with uneven sides. Rematches can occur, but should always be with you playing the opposite decks from your first match.

A win in single sided swiss is 3 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 points. If you and your opponent agree to a tie, please alert a TO within the first 5 minutes of the round.
