World of Warcraft Realm Qualifiers Season 4

Realm Qualifier tournaments will qualify players for their Realm Championship on November 15, 2009. Each event will offer players the chance to earn a spot in the Realm Championship for the Realm in which they qualified. In addition to the main event, each Realm Qualifier will host Booster Draft Challenges as often as there are enough people to run a Draft!

Starting with Season 4, players will qualify based on Realm points rather than placing in top 4 of a Realm Qualifier. All players earn points based on their performance in the Realm Qualifier. A player will need to earn 10 points total throughout the season in a specific Realm in order to qualify for that Realm’s Championship. The point breakdown is as follows:

• 1st – 10 points
• 2nd – 10 points
• 3rd-4th – 6 points
• 5th-8th - 4 points
• 9th+ - 2 points

Events held from August 15 to September 20 will be Drums of War Block Constructed Format. From September 26 to November 8, the events will switch to a Constructed format. For more information about legality of cards for these formats, please see the World of Warcraft TCG Policy.


In addition to Booster Packs that will be awarded according to finish, top finished will also receive the following:

• Winner: Extended Art Equalize
• Top 4: Extended Art Sudden Death
• Top 8: Series 2 Rogue Class Deckbox
• Participation: The first 32 competitors to sign up will receive an Extended Art Swordsmith Hanso

Booster Draft Challenge

At every Realm Qualifier event, Booster Draft Challenges will also be going on for the duration of the event. When eight players sign up for a Draft, the event will begin. New tournaments will be happening throughout the day, as often as there are enough players to run one.

• Top 2: Darnassus Extended Art card, Booster Packs
• Top 4: Booster Packs
