So is there three champions this year?

@joshuabrooks this is still three championships, as before. previously they were north america/europe/asia, held on different weekends. now, they are scheduled to be convenient to those time zones but in the same weekend. it was previously possible to play in multiple of them, and still is now, though likely a bit easier for most people than having to plan multiple trips.

Heads up for the end of Europe daylight saving which will occur on 2 AM SUN 25. of October.

Any idea what deck top 8 the tournaments?

@covetousrat

Probably PO, Doomsday, Hollow One, Bug, and Xerox

These events have managed to pull together 300+ players each, which is amazing for Vintage. I'm really happy with how many players Wizards was able to attract --- great for the format.

Is there a place I can watch coverage for Eternal Weekend? Like a twitch channel or preferably youtube?

You can watch his PO games throughout the 3 EW vintage tourneys.

Is there any place where they’ve announced the winners and decks?

Gotta say, I am really happy with these top 16s. Yes, FoW, Bazaar, and MWS are STILL the "triangle" of Vintage, but these are varied decklists like I've not seen in a very long time. I'd gotten so used to the 4x MWS/2x dredge/2xPO top 8s, that I'd almost given up on seeing variety in vintage. Glad to see so many different strategies!

*grumpy old man noises*

back in my day, it was Drain, Bazaar, Workshop

I haven’t been following the details, but FYI the winner was apparently disqualified for bribery, so that the second-place player (playing shops) now won.

@evouga Yup. Here's confirmation:

The disqualified player in question is former VSL competitor and Vintage stalwart Andreas Petersen. Not a good look for him in any way. Glad WotC took the appropriate action.

It took time for Anuraag and Julian to compile everything and all the post production commentary. This isn't fast work, and also there was the issue with the investigation into what happened with the Mishra's Workshop event with ecobaronen that also likely slowed things down a bit as well.

My point is, be grateful they were able to provide a well put together followup, it takes time to do these kinds of things.

@volrathxp This is 2020. People are so saturated with social media feeds, text and IM, and instant gratification in general that we DEMAND near instantaneous reports. A week is an eternity to wait.

Haven't you ever noticed when someone sends you an email, then a text 5 minutes later asking why you didn't reply to their email, then a call 1 minute later asking if you saw their text? Welcome to the world we live in.

@thewhitedragon69 I mean, sure whatever. lol.

I'm just saying, complaining about something that people did, likely for free and on their own time to give something back to the community and also something that likely had to be held up because of a tournament investigation issue is silly.

It's likely that if there were no issues with the tournament, then the info would have been up the same day as the Legacy event highlights were, but there was an added layer of being unsure what Wizards was going to do with the Ecobaronen situation.
