2013/14 WCT League Season is Now Underway

by James Hoskin, Director of Organized Play

1st October 2013

A new season of the WCT Leagues begins today, and we're excited to reveal the 2013/14 league promos. As usual, league events can be First Edition, Second Edition or Tribbles this season; so each game gets a league promo:

Secret Agent Julian Bashir 100,000 Tribbles (Antidote) Julian Bashir (Rebel Captain)

These three new promos are exclusive to league events until the end of the 2013/14 season. This means that the only way to get your hands on one of these promos will be to participate in a 2013/14 league event, and the only place to play with one will be in a 2013/14 league event. These promos will become printable and playable in all tournaments in July 2014.

In an effort to reduce the workload for shipping manager Dan Hamman and his warehouse elves/minions/collective, the Continuing Committee will not be producing WCT league prize kits this season. Instead, each League Director will be supplied with PDFs of the league promos that they can print and distribute themselves. (League Directors should have received these PDFs via private message in the last few days. If you are expecting to receive them but have not, please contact me directly.)

What are WCT Leagues?

WCT Leagues are designed to provide continuous play during the off-championship months of October through March. They are meant to be fun and to encourage diverse deck design.

League events are run exactly like regular tournaments. The only difference: they also have their own scoring system. League points are awarded based on where you finish at a tournament, as well as how many players participated at that tournament. League directors also have the option of using a number of bonus point schemes, awarding bonus points for things like using a different headquarters in each event and being the first player in a league to complete a particular mission.

This year, the league season is split into three parts: The first half comprises four events held during October and November. The second half comprises four events held during December and January, and the playoffs comprise four events held during February and March. The top finishing players in the first half join the top finishing players in the second half to participate in the playoffs, where the champion of the league is determined.

More information on WCT leagues can be found in Section 11 of the Organized Play Guide (PDF), and questions can be asked in the WCT Leagues forum.

How can you get a league promo?

If you're interested in participating in a WCT league, winning the exclusive promos shown above and earning WCT League specific achievements, the list of this season's leagues (including a league played online via LackeyCCG) can be found in the league hub. If you can't find a league close to you, why not ask your local tournament organizer to apply? If you don't have a local tournament organizer, but you do have at least three friends to play with, why not apply yourself? Please see this article for more information on the (extremely short) application process.

Applications to run a 2013/14 WCT League are still being accepted for the next few weeks.
