Prizing and point structure - The winner of our Store Championship will take home an Unlimited Black Lotus! In order to qualify for the GG Store Championship competitors must win a qualifier or earn points in our monthly qualifying tournaments to be one of our top points earners during the series. There will be 15 total qualifiers and 24 total competitors in the Championship Event. That means 15 winners and 9 top points earners will be competing for a Black Lotus! Players who are already qualified may still play in any qualification event. In the event that they win, the qualification will fall to the next person that hasn’t been qualified yet.
Points will be distributed as follows: 1st - Qualified, 2nd - 5pts, 3-4th - 4 points, 5-8th - 3pts, 9-16th - 2pts, 17th+ - 1pt. This means that you will earn points for playing in these events regardless of your final record on the day. That means that even if you don’t spike an event you can still earn a spot in the Championship with regular play!
