2020-21 Magic Pro League
|2020-21 Magic Pro League|
History[edit | edit source]
With the cancellation of much of the 2020 Players Tour Season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only the first Players Tour was completed. Hence, the roster of the MPL was completely carried over to the 2020-21 season.
Structure[edit | edit source]
In this season, MPL players will play against each other in recurring tournaments — League Weekends — where each match win awards one point toward their league standings. Final league standings at the end of the season, after seven total League Weekends, will place players into the MPL Gauntlet to determine the new invitees to the following season's MPL and Rivals League. All competitors who continue to succeed in their events across the entire 2020-2021 season will receive the best opportunities for an invitation to the next World Championship.
Splits[edit | edit source]
There are three splits during the 2020-2021 season:
- Zendikar Rising Split features two League Weekends — one each planned for October and November.
- "Equestrian" Split will feature three League Weekends.
- "Fencing" Split will feature two League Weekends.
In total for all League Weekends, the 24 MPL players will compete in 84 matches — a maximum total of 84 points — across seven weekends. No other tournaments, including each split's Championship, award points for league standings.
Results[edit | edit source]
For the MPL, standings at the end of the season determine the next steps for that player:
- The Top 4 MPL players are invited to the 2021-22 Magic Pro League and qualify for Magic World Championship XXVII.
- MPL players 5th through 12th will compete for MPL invitation (and face Rivals League relegation) in the MPL Gauntlet.
- MPL players 13th through 24th will be relegated to the Rivals League.
