Destination Qualifier - Update

When we announced the European Magic Series, we told you we were going to work with partners on running Destination Qualifiers. So you could look forward to RCQs run by friendly local gaming stores, larger Destination Qualifiers run by other amazing TOs, and our Regional Championship.

We launched the RCQ kit sale and sold out within 2 weeks, which is humbling, and we’re working hard to improve the availability for Season 2.
We have published the Beta version of the Event locator and we will be updating it as more stores share their dates with us! More than that, the RCQ season started last weekend, and we watched excitedly as the European Magic Series is officially live!

 

We also announced our Regional Championship, which will be happening on the 8th-10th of November 2024, in Lille (France). Our Tournament Team is working on designing the weekend so our return to Magic is a true celebration of the game and of you, the players!

Now, we are finally able to start announcing our Destination Qualifiers. We will be adding these to the event locator, keep a list of the upcoming ones on our website and post on socials whenever tickets are up for any of them. We know this particular announcement is coming later than you, or we, would have liked. But we are already looking ahead, so before Season 2 comes along, we’re aiming to give you more details and a clear schedule of the Season!

 

Without further ado, our first Destination Qualifiers in the European Magic Series are:

 

  • Axion Now – The Gathering, Mega Modern
    • 5 May, at Beanie Games in Stockton-on-Tees , UK
  • Dutch Open Series – Modern, Sealed, Pioneer
    • 11/12 May, Nieuewegein, NL
  • JK Entertainment – 20 year anniversary even, Modern, Sealed, Pioneer
    • 1/2 June, Maintal/Frankfurt, DE

 

For those of you who attend these events, share your experience with us! Send us pictures, tag us, we’d love to see the European Magic Series through your eyes!

As a final update, we have reconsidered our policy on the Qualifications of the Top Performing Players at Regional Championship Naples. Thank you to everyone for reaching out and highlighting the importance of this topic for our competitive community. The Top-36 players of the upcoming RC Naples will automatically qualify for RC Lille.

FAQ

The European Magic Series is the name of the upcoming Regional Championship event series in the EMEA region. These Regional Championships are the gateway for competitive Magic: The Gathering players into the Magic: The Gathering Pro Tour and World Championships.

The first upcoming European Regional Championship will take place in Lille at the Grand Palais on the weekend of 8-10 November 2024.

There will be 3 EMS Regional Championships each year.
We will work with other large MTG tournament organizers to organize Destination Qualifiers that will offer several qualification slots. 

Yes, you absolutely can!
As a reminder, conceding a match in exchange of something is not allowed and will lead to disqualification.

As RCQs are Premier Events, it is required to follow the guidelines of the Magic Tournament Rules, specifically Appendix D, on both Booster Mix allowed and specific sets allowed (based on the date of the tournament).

The Regional Championship will be free of charge for players who have won an invite. Players can win invites from winning a Regional Championship Qualifier (hosted by a WPN store), from Destination Qualifiers and Last Chance Qualifiers. Winners are only able to use their invites at the Regional Championship corresponding with the qualifying season.

You are allowed to trade cards with your friends and other players.

Buying and selling are only allowed with/by the official vendors that are present at the event. If you are found buying and/or selling to someone that is not an official vendor, you will be removed from the tournament hall. If you’d like to apply to be an official vendor, please do so here

Please fill out this form. Our staffing team will reach out to you and you’ll receive a Discord invite to our tournamentcenter Staff Community Discord where further steps will be shared.

Local rules and regulations apply, but players must be 13 years or older, or have written parental permission to participate in our events.

We expect our Regional Championships to feel similar to the previous Regional Championships you’ve participated in before.

At its heart will be the Regional Championship Main Event, with side events, vendors, and Commander play surrounding it. The size and scope of these extra activities will depend on the event hall and available space, this will vary. We will announce further details when the Regional Championship will be fully announced.

We will comply with applicable local laws and regulations.

We’d like to start this update by thanking you all for your patience. We have received so many messages of encouragement since we announced we are running the RCs, as well as many questions on when and where the first one will be. Understandably so, but we wanted to wait to announce the venue and date when we were 100% sure we had the right venue for the event booked.

We appreciate your enthusiasm and we are incredibly excited to see you all in Lille, at the Grand Palais, on the weekend of 8-10 November 2024.
