League Challenge

What is the League Challenge?
Active leagues will get the opportunity to organize a League Challenge once during each month year-round. This change will give more players an opportunity to test their mettle in a rating tournament. The League Challenge tournaments are intended as lower qualifying tournaments and the outcome of a match of each player is of importance to winners how many Championship points they will earn. This is important for players to earn an invite for the World Championships at Washington, D.C., USA in August 2019.


Tournament structure
Participants play with their own decks in the standard format or expanded format (which is indicated as such in the tournament calendar). That means that the use of cards is limited to certain series. Prior to the tournament, during the player meeting, one has to hand over a decklist and during the tournaments there will be deck checks.
