• Nationals and Worlds Announcement!


    Earlier today WizKids announced prize support and structure for all National Events and Worlds.

    Here is a breakdown of some of the prize support:

    DICE MASTERS RAINBOW DRAFT/QUICK PLAY

    Winner – Random prize from the following group:
    Marvel Dice Masters Venom: Symbiotic Organism Foil Card
    DC Comics Dice Masters Constantine: Con Artist Foil Card

    World Championship Qualifications
    For every eight players entered into the event (rounded up), one player earns a 2016-2017 Dice Masters World Championship Qualification. If a player is already qualified, their qualification passes down to the next highest ranked player who does not already have a qualification.



    The BIGGEST structural change is how players can qualify for Worlds.

    DICE MASTERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER

    Player Cap: 8

    Entry Fee: $12

    Format: Unlimited Constructed

    Pairing Structure: Single-Elimination

    Prize Structure*:

    Random Main Event Prize Card

    2nd
    4 Dice Masters Qualification Points
    Random Main Event Prize Card

    3rd-4th
    Random Side Event Prize Card

    5th-8th
    Random Side Event Prize Card

    Dice Masters World Championship Qualifications
    Players must earn a total of 8 Dice Masters Qualification Points in order to qualify for the Dice Masters World Championship. Dice Masters Qualification Points can be earned through the Dice Masters U.S. National Championship and Dice Masters World Championship Qualifiers. Players that are pre-qualified for the Dice Masters World Championship do not need Dice Masters Qualification Points to play in the Dice Masters World Championship.

    LOTS to digest here. What are your thoughts? Do you like the prizes? There are certainly more of them this time around. What do you think of the Worlds Qualification structure?

      If WK isn't afraid to acknowledge the Bard dominance by giving us a shiny version (as opposed to banning or rotating out), I wonder if they have some answers/hard counters planned.

      I'm hoping against hope that the foil Bard has an errata'd text that just hasn't been announced...

      As much as people complain about bard and they make a foil. This is either a crazy bait and switch, get the foil and they ban bard, or they are seriously trying to make this game fail now.

      IIRC, Eric did joke at Worlds about a card with text "This card stops Bard." I can't find the picture/story anymore though.

      Well. It would be nice to finally get rid of a few of the older cards. There are 8 cards on a team or 10 if you include the BAC. If you have to keep the same 4 cards that everyone needs to have the game gets pretty stale to me fast.

      My level of irritation at the game lately has become high and I do not understand with the decline of people going to events that there is not something to shake it up or if WizKids is just going to try to squeeze the last of the money out before they stop making it.

      Eric Lang? He wasn't at Worlds this year. But he may have said that at some point.

      glad people have a shot to get a gobby now.

      Hopefully bard will have errata printed on it. Otherwise I will gladly publicly burn it as a sign of dissent if I win one.

      Very happy with all the other choices and hope next year I can get a Con artist and trinity wars constantine foil

      Yeah, might have been a WKO local to him or something. I swear I saw that story somewhere though lol

      JT helped me find it.

On several peoples mats he wrote in the attack zone "bard vs bard", and one of my friends asked if he could ban the card, to which he said "of course". While these were jokey comments he is aware of the problem that we are facing in tournaments scenes, and I believe that unless we see something strange happen at US nats and Worlds that Bard will receive some kind of errata or fix (there are a lot of ways to do this also).

      I'd also like to point out that the last few WKOs haven't featured nearly as much Bard. It's still a stupidly strong card, but other teams like Beholder/ Ultraman/ Mask Ring can compete against it. There are just much fewer answers to Bard Tina there are to those other teams.
