What types of tournament structures are supported by MTG Melee?

MTG Melee supports Swiss, single elimination, podded, round robin, four player free-for-all, and any combination of these structures for MTG Arena and in-person tournaments.

What types of registration options are supported by MTG Melee?

MTG Melee supports a few different registration options:
  • Invite only tournaments - Organizers can give a generated code to their players so that they can register themselves in the tournament or organizers can pre-register players using those players emails or MTG Arena screen names.
  • Open registration tournaments - Organizers can set an entry fee that is payable directly in the browser. (Payment is handled by Stripe)
  • Charity tournaments - Organizers can set a variable entry fee so that players are able to choose the amount they wish to pay for donation purposes to a charity. (Payment is handled by Stripe. The total amount of entry fees is returned to the organizer minus the Stripe fees.)

Do I need any supportive software in order to play in or run tournaments on MTG Melee?

Our goal is for MTG Melee to incorporate everything a player or organizer needs to participate in an online tournament. Decklists, result submission, player chat, tournament announcements, and many more features are built-in the MTG Melee client to make it as easy as possible to participate.

How many players can participate in a tournament or league?

During the next few months we are placing a cap of 1,000 players per tournament or league (unless otherwise pre-approved) to ensure a smooth and enjoyable tournament for all. However, there is practically no technical limitation on the number of players MTG Melee can support and we can't wait to see how large of a tournament we can host for you.

Do you plan on supporting other games, like Hearthstone?

Yes, absolutely yes! We are currently focusing on Magic Arena for now, but future plans include supporting other card games.
