Wizards of the Coast is partnering with Mogul Esports to offer a free MTG Arena tournament for players in the ANZ region.
A free Magic: The Gathering tournament run by Mogul in partnership with WotC will give Australian and New Zealand MTG Arena players an opportunity to gain global recognition and a piece of a roughly $33,000 prize pool.
Magic players in the ANZ region can register for the Mogul MTGA tournament beginning Oct. 7. Matches, however, aren’t in a round robin or elimination format. Players will Direct Challenge each other and compete via a ladder tournament.
Those who rank in the top 32 of the ladder tournament come Nov. 22 will be eligible for the playoff rounds, followed by a last chance qualifier event. The MTGA Mogul grand finals will begin on Dec. 7.
It’s unclear if the ladder or playoff matches will be held in the best-of-one or best-of-three Standard format via MTG Arena. The Mythic Ranked format in MTGA for the Mythic Championship Qualifiers is in a ladder tournament format, giving players the option to compete in either best-of-one or best-of-three series.
The free registration for the MTG Arena Mogul tournament ends on Oct. 6 at 4am CT.
