World of Warcraft Realm Qualifiers Season 5

Realm Qualifier tournaments will qualify players for their Realm Championship. 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!

As 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

You can take part in the very first Season 5 Realm Qualifier at the Season 4 Championship on the 15 November 2009 at:

Harwood Room
University of Manchester
Sackville Street
M1 3NL


From November 28 to January 24, the events will be Scourgewar Sealed format. From January 30 to March 14, the events will be Constructed format. For more information about legality of cards for these formats, please see the World of Warcraft TCG Policy.*

The tournament will have Swiss rounds and playoffs based on the number of players in the tournament, according to UDE Tournament Policy. All matches are best two-of-three. Players may only play in the Realm Championship event in the Realm that they earned the correct number of Realm points in.
