How does one get into a state championship? Can you just enter or do you have to be invited? Anyone can play, it does not take a special invitation (but if you need one consider this it!)
How long does one of these usually take? What time does it start? Visit with your local organizer about details like that, we promise you the championship in Ohio will take longer than the one in New Mexico. You can find your local organizer HERE.
Hey, I won a championship a couple years ago and never got my Custom DCI Card can I still get that? For Sure! Check out the Custom DCI Card page HERE.
If I have an issue with a particular organizer or something is wrong with The2011’s do I contact Wizards? Actually No, The2011’s is an independent program run by local organizers. The tournaments are sanctioned by the DCI, so if you have a match result appeal speak to them. But for all other issues begin with your local organizer first and then if that doesn’t work out you may discuss your issue with Sunmesa Events HERE.
I’d like to judge or get a dealer table at the championship who do I speak to about that? Staffing, venues, dealers and all other issues of that nature are handled by the local organizer. You can find out who that is HERE.
Does the Champion get an invite to the Pro Tour, Worlds or similar cool invite? No, the championship has always been far more about pride and personal achievement. If you look at many of the best players in North America you will find they often began their journey by winning a championship.
Will there be a Writer’s Contest this year? No, we have elected to put our focus into direct advertising this year. That said, we are very grateful for all the coverage smart Magic players have given generously over the years.
My friendly local game store is much closer and does great events can they run the championship for my area instead? This is a question we get asked a lot, and it’s a hard one (folks in Montana are amazingly blessed by many great places to play). Bottom line, the folks running the championships now are Sunmesa Events customers. They pay us money to help them out with this event, so for us to make a change the need for a change must be clear. We make changes very reluctantly. When the time comes to make a change we thoroughly research the situation and select the location we believe will best serve the players.
Used to be you had to play where you lived is that still true? No, back in 2009 it was decided to allow players to play anywhere.
Why did you do that, what’s a Delaware state championship mean if the champ is from New York?Several reasons actually. Since there are only 62 venues in North America a large number of players were just too far from the place their championship occurred. Also verification of who was (and more importantly was not) a resident was a problem. Exceptions provided trouble proving who lived where. Seriously, we didn’t want to exclude active duty military because they were stationed out of their state or province, same for students, foreign nationals etc. We agree in general that a Delaware resident should be the Champ in Delaware but luckily we discovered after the change that “out of area” winners were fairly uncommon.
How come you don’t have all the names and photos of the champions? That answer lies in the same reasons we don’t get all the Custom DCI Cards out to all players. Sometimes we don’t get a photo at the championship, other times the information is not given to us by the organizer, finally sometimes we simply misplace or misfile the data and it’s lost to us for awhile. One reason we placed the past champions (including the MIAs) was to work on completing the record.
Do you have a Facebook page? Yes we do and you can access it HERE. You must be logged into Facebook for that link to work.
Who created the playmat? The image is called Dragon Slayerdone by Kekai Kotaki. You can check out more of his art HERE.
Will you be publishing the Top 8 Decklists? Yes, you should be able to find the Decklists HERE.
