The European BoM Tour
The European BOM Tour (EBT) is a series of awesome tournaments open to all players. They culminate in an even more prized Invitational. It's divided into four tournament types:
- The BoM Invitational
- The European BoM Tour Opens (EBTO)
- The BoM Invitational Qualifiers (BIQ)
- The EBTO Trials
The BoM Invitational
The BoM Invitational is a week-end of tournaments during which we'll organize an invite-only tournament in each format, free of charge!
Total Prizing for the BoM Invitational is 35000€, divided as follows:
Qualifying for the BoM Invitational
There are three distinct ways:
- Accumulate at least 1.000 ManaPts in one of the four formats throughout 2016.
- Achieve Top 4 of any (EBTO)
(or top 8 if attendance exceeds 409 players)
- Win a BoM Invitational Qualifier
Qualifications are format-dependent. For instance, if you're achieving Top4 of a Legacy EBTO, you're qualified for the Legacy Invitational. The same rule applies for Manapts.
Manas Points (ManaPts) are another way to qualify for the BoM Invitational. They aim at rewarding those who always perform well but miss the small step to the Top4 and allow them to compete with the elite.
ManaPts can be earned with:
- Any registration to a Last Chance Trial (LCT) : 10 Mana Pts
- Any registration to a Main Event : 50 ManaPts
- Quarter-Finals of a Main Event : 450 ManaPts (additional)
