Exodus News, Issue #018 -- Organized Play Press Release
Click Here for PRESS RELEASE Summary at iCv2; Official Announcement:
Existence Games is happy to announce official Organized Play for the Exodus Trading Card Game, starting February 2018. Sanctioned Events are to be held in-store for Constructed and Booster Draft formats, which will award participants with both Lifetime Points and Season Points toward invitation-only Championships. Players are invited to compete for exclusive prizes such as Champion Playmats, artist-signed cards and Limited Edition sketch cards.
Separate Championships will be held for Constructed and Booster Draft tournaments, each with their own qualifier circuit throughout each Season. Competitive Seasons will span 1 year (from Summer to Summer) minus two weeks to pay out additional player rewards and reset the Leaderboards. Season 1, however, will be
a 'half-season' lasting 6 months to serve as the Open Beta. This will allow new sets released once per year to align with new seasons.
Retailers and TOs (Tournament Organizers)The Event Result submission process for Retailers has never been easier. Tournament Organizers (TOs) can submit an event they run in 4 simple steps:
1) Login to their Store dashboard and click 'New Event'. 2) Update the Event Info by selecting the Event Type, Number of Players, Event Date and any public information or admin notes, if applicable. 3) Use the 'Player Search' function to add players by name or ID number in order of final standings; the system will auto-fill the Event Results page. 4) Mark which Guild each player was fighting for based on what kind of deck they were playing during the tournament and then click 'Submit Results'!
After the submission process, events are reviewed by Existence Games to ensure the event actually occurred. Events are accepted or rejected before Rankings are updated.
The streamlined process allows Event Organizers to quickly and accurately report events so that they can get back to doing what they do best. Whether
that's running demos or selling games in their store, we invite store personnel as well as the general player to apply to become an Event Organizer (as long as they coordinate and get approval from the person in charge at their local game store)! In fact, the easy-to-use system behind the Exodus Organized Play website (exodus-players.com) was created by a programmer who has first-hand experience owning and operating a brick-and-mortar game store with a focus on trading card game tournaments.
One kit will supply 1 month's materials for 2 Tournaments and 2 Booster Drafts to help you promote Exodus The Trading Card Game!
Event Kits will also include a Tournament/Draft sheet listing all materials, how to distribute them, and basic rules for running tournaments and drafts. Note: All Champion Playmat designs and LE sketch cards will be randomized. The Monthly Promo card included in the kits will be updated each month.
