Q: What is a Swiss Round Tournament?
A: Players are paired off based on each player’s win/loss record. Players are not eliminated when they lose a match during Swiss tournaments – instead, they will continue to be paired against players with similar records for all remaining rounds of the event.

Q: What is a Single-Elimination Tournament?
A: Half of the tournament is eliminated after each round – the losing player is out of the tournament, while the winner goes on to the next round. This continues until only one player remains, which is then declared the winner.

Q: What is a Dragon Duel?
A: Dragon Duel tournaments are exclusive to Duelists born before a certain calendar year, with the calendar year requirement moving forward after the World Championship each year. The current year requirement is for Duelists born in 2005 or later.

Dragon Duel tournaments are Advanced Format, Constructed events exclusive to Duelists born in 2005 or later. Dragon Duels give a chance to earn an invite to the Dragon Duel World Championship Qualifier. It is run using Swiss Rounds without a Top Cut playoff.

Participants are required to provide proof of age in order to participate in a Dragon Duel. Duelists must be born in 2005 or later.

A minimum of (4) Duelists is required to run a Dragon Duel tournament.

Q: What are the prizes for the Dragon Duel?
A: Top 4 Duelists in a Dragon Duel tournament will receive a Regional Game Mat, and a Regional Deck Box.
