    Tournament format details:


    GRAND FINALS (Saturday 15th December - Sunday 16th December)

    - 1 reigning champion (BP AmberFade) and 31 players that qualified in preceding weeks (see first post)
    - Round one for Day 1 starts Saturday 15th December 6pm GMT+0.
    - Day 1 will be 32-player swiss decklock, over 5 rounds of best-of-three, to find Top 8 players.
    - Day 2 will be 8-player single-elimination decklock with best-of-five per round.


    THREE REGIONAL QUALIFIERS (Friday 30th November - Sunday 2nd December)

    - For each region (Americas, Europe/Africa, Asia/Australasia), there will be a Swiss-style tournament (i.e. each player plays in every round).
    - You can only take part in ONE regional qualifier.
    - The specifics of games per round and scoring per round are covered in the next post below
    - You must use one unchanged deck throughout the whole regional ("Decklock"). Deck checks will be done based on server logs to ensure this has been adhered to.
    - Maximum of 128 players per regional. Sign up ahead of time to avoid disappointment!
    - Sign-ups are not yet open!
    - Sign-ups close Thursday 29th November at 10pm GMT+0.
    - The top 4 ranking players at the end of each regional will earn a spot in the Grand Finals.
    - The specifics of how tie-breakers will be calculated is not yet finalised
    - It costs 500 Shadow Crystals to take part in one of these Swiss-style regional qualifiers. The 500SC will be taken from your account automatically when you sign-up and no more will be taken after that.
    - All games to be played on latest version (currently 3.63).

For personal reasons, from November 2018 onwards, I have returned to being a humble average player and community contributor, with the intention of enjoying the game and its community and helping out where I can with my free time.

    Dates seem good!

    Suppose all that is left is to finalize times for regionals.

    Thanks for putting this together!

    We are currently working on the times for each day. There should be an updated WC thread posted sometime this weekend with all relevant information. Of course, it will be stickied for easy accessibility.

    Keep your eyes open!
