Don't worry, if you can't be at one of our Live events, there will be plenty of other opportunities for you to get one of the 8 tickets to the road to Paris :)
More info on this very soon.

Only 8 Tickets?
Wow that´s exclusive...

But it seems like there will be an Option to qualify online...
But I fear there will be the biggest crowd. So I´m quite excited how this will be done.

Edit: I also hope that everyone can only join one Tournament to get a Ticket, otherwise others will have an advantage of joining several events to grab a ticket.

Is this a joke or are you serious?

You wanna give tickets for your WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP away to players who are randomly at the dreamhack? What is the point of this? If 10, 20 or 50 bad players are there, a few of them will go home with tickets for a World Championship? You have to do Online-Qualifiers for the Real-Qualifiers, not just invite anyone who is there.

In my opinion a World Championship should be played by the best players of the world - not by the guys who are at random on your events. This is just ******ed and has nothing to do with eSport ;-)

Just take your car from The Nederlands... drive to Aarhus, Denmark and pick me up. Then we drive on to Copenhagen (and drink a beer), then driving over the Øresundsbroen and then keep driving till we reach our destination ;)

Plenty of the best e-sports have open qualifiers. I don't see what the issue is.

Magic ... the pro tour qualifiers, anyone can enter. To qualify to represent your contry at the world magic cup... anyone can enter.

MLG Events.. Open qualifiers or open tournaments .. at the event.

Dota 2 is mostly invite only, I will give you that, but there are a few open tournaments , that's how new teams "break into scene".

Starcraft is a lot of invite and a lot of open tournaments, really depends. A lot of the korean tournaments are extremely limited on how you enter/qualify, for instance kespa proleague you need to be on a team :P, but that's just how it is. Gom Starleague is kind of open, but you need to be a foreigner or high on the ladder to enter the qualifiers. WCS is mixed iirc.

League of Legends, is basically a mix, invite only and open. Their premier league was basically extremely open, you needed to do well on team ladder iirc.

The games with invite only qualifiers are the games with established competitive scenes, with plenty of tournaments for those at all levels of play which this game clearly doesn't have. This game needs open tournaments right now, it has no established tournament scene, and a very limited established competitive scene.

If your issue is that the locations for live qualification are pretty limited so far (considering their worldwide audience), and they haven't announced any other ways for others to qualify yet, then I agree!

Don't you guys want to go a lil' bit around and visit Lodz, Poland in the meantime? :) Then we can drive though Lithuania, Estonia and so on, circle the Baltic Sea and reach the destination ^^

Hi guys,

You can now follow the different brackets on Battlefy: http://bit.ly/13KYO50

I've also updated the list of prizes to give you an idea of what you can win... don't forget the Online Tournament prizes will be quite a bit bigger ;)

Best,
Aza

PS: if you come by the booth today you can pick up a poster for free just by saying Aza404 :D

These prizes are quite alright! Seems you're doing this thing right where other digital card games falter, namely giving out real prizes for your tournament. I hope you can keep up in this effort, and in the meanwhile patch up the flaws that are still there, and there may actually be a game I can recommend to my friends.

Hi guys,

I'll be streaming the replays of yesterday's semi-finals and finals on the official Duel of Champions channel: http://fr.twitch.tv/duelofchampions (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Ffr.twitch.tv%2Fduelofchampion s&h=SAQEmQ9yu&s=1)

This will start today at 3pm UK time and will last until we've found out who's the first player to win a ticket for the Road to Paris!

Don't miss out ;)

damn, wish would have been at the dreamhack. guess this would have been the easiest way (after watching the finals i am quite sure...) to get a ticket for paris :(
system to find the 8 finalists seems to be as fair as the swiss break points, hope there is a live event near where i am...

Hello!

The live event turned out really positive, even though I got knocked out in the Ro8. I look forward to other events and will check back regularly to keep up to date with any new information.
Will there be other casts scheduled in the near future? I found the official twitch channel, so will tune in whenever anything happens. Hopefully, the booths will be more equipped to follow the matches played in the future. (The TV's only showed the brackets) But I am aware that we cannot have everything.

While there are tournaments in the client, I was wondering if any other tournament formats will be set up in the future? Along with a replay / spectator mode, this will benefit the game greatly I'm sure. Ps: Will the event in Paris later this year be invite only? And will it be possible to attend?

A big thanks to the teams working behind the scenes - and for attending DH.
