Mythic Championship Qualifiers Details
Players competed in the game this past weekend for two days, narrowing down to just 16 players at the top. Those players were the ones who received an invite to the upcoming Mythic Championship V where they could secure their claim as one of the best players in the world.
The tournament began a couple of days ago in MTG Arena with 1,000 players in total who were among the best ranked players in the game. This was a great opportunity for those players who aren’t pro players currently but want the chance to showcase their skills on a world stage.
On day one of the Mythic Championship Qualifiers, the 1,000 players competed against one another in matches until there were only 128 players remaining. Those players could move onto day two of the competition where they competed in seven rounds of Swiss matches.
Players were then ranked in the tournament based on how well they did in those seven matches. From there, the top 16 players would be the ones who would emerge victorious and receive an invite to the upcoming Mythic Championship V event.
