BoMTour 2016 Final 2016 The Mana Points system 31 Aug 2016 News by: Hemgath

The Mana Points system

 

To reward regularity throughout the European BOM Tour, we are introducing a system that awards slots at the BOM Finals 2016

 

By registering for BOM Events and achieving good results, you will earn colored Mana Points, depending on the format you play.

 

Each player will have 4 Mana Points totals:

- Blue for Standard

- Black for Modern

- Red for Legacy

- Green for Sealed

 
 

At the end of the season, players with 680 points or more of a given color will be awarded a slot at the Final of the corresponding format. For example, a player who has 500 Blue Mana Points and 1 200 Red Mana Points will only qualify for the Legacy Final.

This will give players who post great finishes but missed the Top 4 a chance to compete among the best.

 

The Mana Points will be distributed as follows:

 

  • Registering for a Last Chance Trial: 10 Mana Points of the format’s color
  • Registering for a Main Event: 50 Mana Points of the format’s color
  • Quarter-finalist at a Main Event: 450 additional Mana Points of the format’s color

BoMTour 2016 Final 2016 * BoM Final Qualifiers 16 Dec 2015 News by: Hemgath

 

 

BoM Final Qualifiers (BFQ) are tournaments that give players an extra opportunity to qualify for the BoM Finals, in addition to the BoM Main Events and the Mana Points system.


Indeed, each BFQ will award the winner a slot at the BoM Finals 2016, in the format in which the BFQ was held.

 

 

So as to maintain the greatest level of organization, BFQs will only be run by Organizers owning a Brick and Mortar Store with WPN level Advanced or Advanced Plus.

Each organizer can run a maximum of 1 BFQ per format.

 

 

Here are the preliminary conditions to request organization of a BFQ:

  • Having organized 4 BoM Trials in a given format, none having been cancelled OR;
  • Having been a vendor at a 2016 BoM event

Please note that neither the TO nor the judge may play in the Final Qualifier. If that happens, the Final Qualifier will be automatically invalidated by Wizards of the Coast and qualification will be cancelled.
Note that if the TO is affiliated to a store, that store's TO can not play in the Final Qualifier either.

 

If you meet these criteria, you can fill this Google Form:

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, if you plan on running a very special tournament and you would like it to be a BoM Finals Qualifier, create a description of your tournament and why you believe it should be a BFQ and contact the BOM team at contact@bazaar-of-moxen.com.
