StarCityGames.com has announced the schedule of their Magic: the Gathering 2011 StarCityGames.com Open Series. For 2011, the StarCityGames.com Open Series will feature two $50,000 invitationals, twice as many stops, increased prize payouts, the addition of two open drafts to the Sunday of each event, and the introduction of the StarCityGames.com Player’s Club spearhead the big changes for the upcoming year.
Here’s the relevant information regarding the new StarCityGames.com Player’s Club:
If you make Level 8 of the StarCityGames.com Player’s Club, you receive 4x copies of each new Standard Magic set, a $250 appearance fee at each StarCityGames.com Open, two byes at every Constructed StarCityGames.com Open tournament (not counting the Invitationals themselves), free entry into the StarCityGames.com Standard and Legacy Open tournaments each Open weekend, qualification for two StarCityGames.com Invitational tournaments that season, and a free pack of sleeves at each StarCityGames.com Open Weekend!
Points will reset at the beginning of each StarCityGames.com Open year. Once you have reached a level, you will be conferred the benefits of that level into the next Open year! For instance, if you earned 40 Points during the 2010 StarCityGames.com Open season, you will start 2011 at zero points, but will have all of the Level 4 benefits locked in for all of 2011 – 1 Bye per event, free attendance to the two constructed Open events each Weekend, automatic qualification for both Invitationals in 2011, and a free pack of sleeves at every Weekend you attend!
Player’s Club levels for the 2010 season will be locked upon the completion of the StarCityGames.com Open Weekend in Boston, MA, November 6-7, 2010. Points will be reset starting with the StarCityGames.com Open Weekend in Richmond, VA, December 3-5, 2010.
