Magic Online Premier Play Program
The Premier Play Program for Magic Online is introduced in 2020 to incorporate both the revamped Players Tour system and the Magic Online Championship Series into a single program. Season 1 of the 2020 MTGO Premier Play Program began Tuesday, December 10, 2019.
Seasonal model[edit | edit source]
The Magic Online Premier Play features a seasonal model. For 2020, Wizards of the Coast has split the year into shorter seasons of about seventeen weeks each. Each season will have its own qualifying events and will culminate in an eight-player in-person Champions Showcase with its own prize pool of $70,000 and an invitation to an upcoming Players Tour Finals. Once the qualifying season is over, the system will reset and start a new season.
Players will only be earning a single Premier Play entry object, Qualifier Points (QPs). With the seasonal reset, all earned QPs will be removed from players accounts before starting the new season.
