Hello Alter Reality Gamers! Thank you for joining us today for the ARG Circuit Series as we make our first ever stop on the West Coast(ish)! There is an action packed weekend ahead of us, with a livestreamed and written feature match each round. We are cherry picking the best matches we can today to ensure the absolute best experience for you guys and will be having a number of guest commentators throughout the day on the stream. We are only two weeks away from a new Forbidden and Limited list, but that doesn't change the furor with which the players here today will battle it out!
This past format has been dominated by an age old battle of Water vs. Fire, but there are a lot of sleeper picks that many people are betting on today. Decks like Bujins, Geargias and Hieratics still remain strong contenders, but who knows what rogue will come into play today after having an entire format to determine how best to destroy all of these decks. Will there be another format upset like we had at ARGCS Columbus where our finals was an intense battle played out between the archrivals Evilswarms and Constellars? Who knows!
What I do know is that our final match of the weekend will be played as a Best of 5 and the prize support has been raised from $5,000 to $5,500. So with even more on the line we are excited to see what plays and strategies come to the table today.
