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
  • 9-16th at a Main Event: 250 additional Mana Points of the format’s color
  • 17-32nd at a Main Event: 150 additional Mana Points of the format’s color
