    Top 250 Best Score Monthly Prizes (Jan 2018 onwards)

    To match up with the increased skill/performance required to make the Top 250 Best Score Leaderboard in October, here are the new digital prizes for each season, which apply for January 2018 onwards (Oct-Dec 2017 had the same prizes but just for top 100):


    TOP 250 BEST SCORE

    1st - 20 Prize Packs, 20 Premium Foil Packs, 10 Pick-a-Card
    2nd - 18 Prize Packs, 18 Premium Foil Packs, 9 Pick-a-Card
    3rd - 16 Prize Packs, 16 Premium Foil Packs, 8 Pick-a-Card
    4th - 14 Prize Packs, 14 Premium Foil Packs, 7 Pick-a-Card
    5th - 12 Prize Packs, 12 Premium Foil Packs, 6 Pick-a-Card
    6-10th - 10 Prize Packs, 10 Premium Foil Packs, 5 Pick-a-Card

    In addition, all the top 10 every month will receive their choice of any exclusive sleeve and exclusive playmat that has ever been for sale (i.e. choosing the WC2016 finalist sleeve is not allowed).

    11-20th - 8 Prize Packs, 8 Premium Foil Packs
    21-30th - 6 Prize Packs, 6 Premium Foil Packs
    31-40th - 4 Prize Packs, 4 Premium Foil Packs
    41-50th - 3 Prize Packs, 3 Premium Foil Packs
    51-100th - 2 Prize Packs, 2 Premium Foil Packs
    101-250th - 1 Prize Pack, 1 Premium Foil Pack *new for Jan 2018*

    A Prize Pack contains 2 cards randomly selected from all cards in the game that are not available for sale in booster packs. This pool currently includes foils from the CotC physical preorder, foils from the DP physical preorder and foils and alt-arts from the Crystals Anthology decks - the complete list can be seen in the post below this one. As more special cards are created, they will likely also be added to this pool.

    Pick-a-Card allows you to choose from ANY card that can be found in a pack or starter deck (including Premium Foil Packs and Prize Packs).


    THE BEST SCORE SYSTEM EXPLAINED

    1. As with the previous Score system, your Match Score for a victory is YourRating*OpponentRating/100, your Match Score for a loss is 0 and any games you draw are treated as though they didn't happen.

    2. Unlike the previous Score system (used in seasons before October 2017), each player's current Score is calculated as the sum of their most recent 50 Match Scores that month only (as opposed to all Match Scores that month).

    3. Your highest Score each month (representing your best 50-match period) is always stored as your Best Score, so there is no risk of harming it and every reason to continue trying to improve on it. For avoidance of doubt, your Best Score is set back to 0 each month, so it's a clean slate every month.

    4. The Best Score Leaderboard shows the players with the top 250 Best Scores, acting as the ultimate measure of player skill and performance each month, and those players will be rewarded accordingly (see above!).

    This system is now live. You can track the Best Score Leaderboard on the Rankings page or within the game itself (it's currently listed as Score on the Top Players screen because the client requires an update to say Best Score).

    Your Player Profile and Status now shows your Best Score with ranking, Mean Best Score with ranking (to track how you are doing before you hit 50 games), your Rating with ranking (for those who still care about that) and your Meltdown Score with ranking.

    Question: have the rewards been sent out yet for the December season? I've received nothing as of yet. Not sure if others have.
