Magic: The Gathering Arena is now part of the ESL ANZ Champs for 2021!
Welcome to the very first ESL ANZ Champs Magic: The Gathering Arena season!
Grab your axe and shuffle your decks because Magic: The Gathering Arena is coming to the ESL ANZ Champs for 2021. A fierce competition that ignites even the coldest of dragons' hearts. Bare witness to the best challengers the region has to offer.
Magic: The Gathering Arena will run for two seasons, each season sporting 4 weekends of combat leading into a Champions Stage to determine who stands atop the peak of national glory.
It all starts in the open qualifier on the Saturday, contestants will muster their mana over the course of a Swiss Stage, and if you claim victory, you’ll progress to the Sunday. Come Sunday, the battle ramps up with the top 8 qualified contestants battling it out in a single elimination bracket, with all the coverage being brought to you via the ESL Ivory Tower in Sydney for all to see.
Where you place in the Single Elimination on the Sunday will determine how many points you earn for that event. As you accrue points you will climb higher on the Seasonal Ladder. At the conclusion of the 4 weekends of combat, the top 8 contestants on the Seasonal Ladder with the most points, will compete at the Champions Stage for the lion’s share of $2,500AUD in cash prizes & $4,000AUD worth of Gems and TCG Card Packs.
Every event finals we'll bring all the action via twitch.tv/esl_australia from 5pm AEST
