Additional Features – Forbidden Power Store Incentives
In an attempt at making the Magic League more interesting we have added the following features:
Top 10 Closure
Instead of having players buying packs, building decks and playing towards no specific target; we decided to introduce a Top 10 qualification system. The top 10 players with the most wins and who show the greatest commitment and perseverance shall qualify to play for an additional prize as described below.
Additional Booster Prize
The aim of this additional Booster Prize and top 10 system is meant to provide players with an incentive to play the Magic League up to its completion (rather that quitting half way from lack of interest.)
The prize is determined by the number of participants; and is based on an additional €1 added to the participation fee. A booster will be added to the prize pool for every 3 players. In order to make it more interesting the store then doubles the amount of packs in the prize pool which players would have managed to gather through their participation.
Example: If 9 players take part in League, they gather a booster prize of 3 packs. The store adds an additional 3 packs which bringing the pool up to 6 packs.
The exact number of packs will be communicated close to the 4th week of league play. Distribution will be amongst the top 10.
