Pairings will be done using the Direct Challenge feature (Tournament Match) on Magic Arena. Players will have 5 minutes to check in for their match once pairings are posted. Pay attention to audio and SMS notifications (set this up on your profile!) for new pairings.
Players are allowed to intentionally draw, but Top 8 will use the High Seed Play/Draw rule. You may need to customize your Direct Challenge settings to make sure that the higher seed gets the choice to play or draw.
Recording your matches with screen recording software is HIGHLY recommended. If there are any disputes about deck contents, deck legality, or unsporting conduct during your match, we may request video evidence to aid in our investigation.
Additionally, video coverage of this event will be provided by the NRG Series. If you're interested in seeing your match covered, upload your videos to Google Drive and share with firstname.lastname@example.org! Please make sure your match videos follow the guidelines in order to be covered.
Top 8 players are REQUIRED to record their matches.
KMC Sleeves is the official sponsor of the 2020 NRG Series. Top 8 competitors will each receive a set of KMC Hyper Mat sleeves and perfect fits! Check out KMC at kmcsleeves.com!
Players are responsible for ensuring they have a stable internet connection. To ensure event integrity, game crashes and restarts will not cause a match in progress to restart. Any other issues will be dealt with based on the sole discretion of the tournament organizer.
Players should be aware of the known bugs on Magic Arena.
By participating in this event, you agree to the Nerd Rage Gaming Ltd. Camera and Video policy. Additionally, you consent to any recordings of your match being edited and used by NRG Series coverage.
