State Championship Series - Tiered Prizes

In 2014, TCGplayer will offer three State Championship events, all in different formats to ensure that our State Champions have their own true claim to fame in a particular format. In the Spring we will offer our first Limited State Championships featuring the Theros/Born of the Gods/Journey into Nyx sealed format. The summer will bring our first Modern State Championships, and we will come back next fall with the Standard format's rotation and our Standard State Championships.

MAY 31ST - June 1ST
August 2ND - 3RD
October 4TH - 5TH

Knowing that we are going to have State Champions in multiple formats, we want to go above and beyond for those players that may do well in more than one event. So in addition to any prizes awarded by organizers, State Champions will receive a special “All Access” pass that will allow them free entry into any Diamond Open event!

On top of that, any player that wins two State Championship formats (Limited, Modern and Standard) in 2014 will be awarded a $350 travel award for attending the $50,000 MaxPoint Series Championship. Should any player win in all three formats (Limited, Modern and Standard), they will be awarded a $1,000 travel appearance award if they attend the Championship!

Level 1: One State Championship Win in 2014
Level 2: Two State Championship Wins in 2014
Level 3: Three State Championship Wins in 2014
