    Post The Path to WC2021

    With last year's WC finals starting soon, it may seem strange to talk about WC2021 already. But it's important to start planning the year and know what's in store for the competitive scene!

    This year we are again taking player's feedback into consideration and making changes to the format. There will be 32 slots available for the World Championship Finals:


    • 1 returning champion from 2020
    • 15 from 5 big guild tournaments including Crown and Slugfest held throughout the year, where the top 3 will receive a WC ticket and cash prizes
    • 5 from Pro Tour: Earn points from using the new automated tournaments system throughout the year. Pro Tour Finals in January 2022 where the top 32 in points will battle in Swiss format for 5 WC tickets and cash prizes
    • 5 from rated scoreboard: top 100 every month from January 2021 until December 2021 get their score/pts recorded and summed each month. Rated Finals in January 2022 will take the top 32 in overall points to battle in Swiss format for 5 WC tickets and cash prizes
    • 6 from 3 regional tournaments in December with entry fees. Each tournament also has cash prizes



    World Championships (February 2022)
    Day 1 = 32 players, format TBD
    Day 2 = 8 player single elimination

    The cash prizes will be announced after last year's WC has concluded!

    Amazing prizes, but why don't half it and use the rest for paying somebody to finish to code the new cards we are waiting from long time? Or to balance the older one?
