The BoM events:


The BoMs are Open tournament. This means that they are open to ALL players.
 
The BoMs take place during 3-day weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) all around europe. For 2016, there will be 6 BoM tournaments: Madrid, Annecy, Strasbourg, London, Paris, and Brussels.
Each BoM stage functions with the same prize distribution and tournament schedule.



The BOM schedule:

 

  • Four big tournaments called Main Events:

-> 1 in Legacy & 1 in Standard on Saturday.
-> 1 in Modern & 1 in Sealed on Sunday.

  • Trials
  • Many side events in all formats you can imagine, with a few surprises to be announced soon

Players who reach the Top 4 (semifinals) of a Main Event will earn a slot for the BOM Finals 2016 of the corresponding format in addition to their prizes.

For example, a players who reaches the final of a Modern Main Event will be qualified for the Modern Final.

 

The Prize Pool:

In addition to prizes, each Main Event will award the Top 4 Players an invitation to the BOM Finals 2016 of the corresponding format.

 

 

The Mana Points system

 

To reward regularity throughout the European BOM Tour, we are introducing a system that awards slots at the BOM Finals 2016

 

By registering for BOM Events and achieving good results, you will earn colored Mana Points, depending on the format you play.

 

Each player will have 4 Mana Points totals:

At the end of the season, players with 1 000 points or more of a given color will be awarded a slot at the Final of the corresponding format. For example, a player who has 500 Blue Mana Points and 1 200 Red Mana Points will only qualify for the Legacy Final.

This will give players who post great finishes but missed the Top 4 a chance to compete among the best.

 

The Mana Points will be distributed as follows:

 

  • Registering for a Last Chance Trial: 10 Mana Points of the format’s color
  • Registering for a Main Event: 50 Mana Points of the format’s color

EBT 2016 : BoM Final Qualifiers 16 Dec 2015 News by: Stephane

 

 

BoM Final Qualifiers (BFQ) are tournaments that give players an extra opportunity to qualify for the BoM Finals, in addition to the BoM Main Events and the Mana Points system.


Indeed, each BFQ will award the winner a slot at the BoM Finals 2016, in the format in which the BFQ was held.

 

 

So as to maintain the greatest level of organization, BFQs will only be run by Organizers owning a Brick and Mortar Store with WPN level Advanced or Advanced Plus.

Each organizer can run a maximum of 1 BFQ per format.

 

 

Here are the preliminary conditions to request organization of a BFQ:

  • Having organized 4 BoM Trials in a given format, none having been cancelled OR;
  • Having been a vendor at a 2016 BoM event

If you meet these criteria, you can fill this Google Form:

 

 

Finally, if you plan on running a very special tournament and you would like it to be a BoM Finals Qualifier, create a description of your tournament and why you believe it should be a BFQ and contact the EBT team at contact@bazaar-of-moxen.com.

BoM Points: Win what you like! 13 Mar 2015 News by: Kevin

 

At GP Strasbourg, we experienced a brand new way to give out prizes. It's been really successful and we have decided to run it at all our events. The system is easy:

 

Instead of fixed prizes you may not be thrilled about, you will earn BoM points at ALL Side Events.
Yes, ALL Side Events: This includes Friday Trials and 8-player tournaments.

 

BoM Points can be converted into the boosters, singles or goodies that YOU like
Check our selection of top singles and exclusive goodies in our Prize Wall section


Points can be accumulated through the week-end
You don't need to choose a prize immediately. You can keep them throughout the whole week-end to be eligible to even better prizes.


Team with your friends
You can combine your BoM points to get better prizes.
How nice would it be that five of you share a ComicCon "Black" Planeswalkers Set?
Or that, instead of 30 individual boosters, you have a filmed brand new box of product?
Or maybe a whole case of product?

 

And if you have remaining BoM points at the end of the week-end, don't worry. Our prize wall will remain open until very late on Sunday evening!

 

Check out what's in it!
