- All regular season events are open to anyone not on the suspended or banned list.

- Participants will meet in /join PDC where the host will direct players to /join BPDC and register (type REG).

- 30 minutes after registration opens, it will close and Round 1 pairings will be posted on this site.

- Events will consist of 3 rounds of Swiss into Top 4 single-elimination brackets. If there are 18 or more players, we will do 4 rounds of Swiss instead. If there are 24 or more players, Top 8 playoffs will occur.

- Set up your match table following these guidelines:

- In the Casual > Anything Goes room
- Match (best 2 of 3)
- Timed for 30 minutes
- Watchable
- Labeled "BPDC Round #" (replace # with the round number)

- It is the responsibility of both players to ensure match tables are set up properly!

- PM your opponent at the beginning of the round. If a player does not report for a match within 10 minutes, he/she forfeits the entire match. Please also PM the event host if your opponent is not responding. (This player will be dropped.)

- Intentional draws (IDs) are not allowed.

- Report illegal decks to the event host. Offending players will be issued a match loss during Round 1 only, and allowed to replace the illegal card(s) with basic lands for the remainder of the event.

- An illegal deck spotted after Round 1 will result in an event disqualification and an official warning.

- At the end of your match, please report your score (W 2-0, W 2-1, L 1-2, L 0-2) in /join BPDC. Every player must post a result, win or lose!

- If you need to drop from the tournament, you must type 'DROP' in /join BPDC. Failure to report drops will result in an official warning.

- Please note: Altering your decklist between matches is illegal and will result in disqualification and an official warning.

- All players are highly encouraged to post decklists following the event, but Top 8 participants are required to do so.


- Participants must post a decklist in Gatherling in order to earn season points

- each Swiss Match Win earns 3 points
- each Swiss Match Loss earns 1 point

- 1st place earns 10 points
- 2nd place earns 7 points
- Top 4 earns 4 points
- Top 8 (if applicable) earns 2 points


- Watchers are expected not to chat in other games but in /join PDC only.

- Players are requested to contact the event host via private messaging to report a concern regarding player conduct.

- The event host is not responsible for making judgments based on game play situations. The host will not enter a match table and tell players what to do. The host is a facilitator, not a judge.

- The host reserves the right to preserve the integrity of the tournament.


- In the event of a server crash or other technical difficulty, the tournament will be delayed for no more than 30 minutes total.

- An announcement on the appropriate event thread will be used for tournament communication during the delay.

- Once the technical difficulties have ended, an announcement will be made on the appropriate event thread, and players will have 10 minutes to rejoin the tournament.

- If the tournament is canceled during Swiss play, no prizes will be awarded.

- If the tournament is canceled during playoffs, players in the playoff brackets may seek each other out and finish their matches at a later date. In that case, both players must report the results to the tournament organizer for it to be a valid match.

NOTE: Wizards of the Coast, Magic Online and boards administrators do not provide any support for this event. Participate at your own risk.
