Applications open for WGP 2015!

Jul 13 2015

07/15 UPDATE: Nationals Date and Time!
Heart of the Cards is proud once again to announce the World Grand Prix 2015! at Regionals all across North America, WS players will strive to get an invite to the National Tournament, and the winner there will get the opportunity to go to Japan as the North American Champion!

The next step, however, needs your help to be a success! We're in the process of setting up the Regionals for this year's North American (US/Canada) WGP, and we need to determine where to hold our Regionals! If you are interested in having one in your area, please read and follow these instructions carefully!

Send us an email at :
The Subject should be "NA WGP Regional Request - TOWNNAME, ST", where TOWNNAME should be replaced by the name of the town you live in, and ST should be the 2-letter abbreviation your state uses.

The Body of the email should follow this format:

- Your Name
- Your Email
- Your Phone Number
- Your City and State
- The Name of the Location of the Regional
- Contact information / website of the Regional Location
- The maximum amount of player seating available (DO NOT ESTIMATE)
- If you've held a WS regional before
- 100 words or less on why your spot should be picked. Include approximate counts on local playerbase size, events held, and so on.

People requesting the Regional will still be able to play in it - if your location is selected, we will either send someone to judge it or assist you remotely.

The site you choose for the Regional cannot charge money in any way - the Regional must occur in a free location (no conventions with badge fees, no stores that would require an entry fee). We suggest working with a local game store, or a library. You must have permission to run it in this location. The location must have stable internet access, and you must have the ability to understand and follow instructions, and access to a phone for the duration of the tournament.

If selected, we will work with you to set up a Regional in your area in September / October, with Nationals occurring in Rochester, NY, at Hammergirl Anime, Sunday, Nov. 22nd, 10AM.

Note that we do not have answers for many questions regarding tournament structure / format / number of spots / etc yet - while we work on details, we need to get a list of interested places first, and we won't know about an interested place without your input!

Be sure to let your friends know about this as well - if you talk about WS in English, post a link to this announcement, so we can get the word out as fast as possible. All applications must be in by July 24th.

Some notes on things we are in the process of working on:
- Regionals in Canada are allowed, and any player living in America or Canada (Citizenship not required - visa holders and citizens are both allowed) is allowed to win the National Tournament - winners must be able to fly from the US to Japan and back, possibly without accompaniment (esp. in case of Canadian winners). Once in Tokyo, we should be able to provide assistance, if we cannot fly one the same plane with you to Japan
- No Regionals outside USA / Canada
- English cards are not allowed, only Japanese cards are allowed

Again, please note - you must be able to follow instructions, fairly hand out promotional items, send back extras, do paperwork, and keep a cool head if you want to be an Assistant Organizer for a Regional. You'll still be able to play in it - we expect the more prominent players in each area to apply for their area - but if you can't handle deferring to a higher authority during a tournament, or explaining both sides of a question, bad things can happen. Please make sure you are mature and fair enough to be responsible for running an event before you apply.

Even if you know your friend applied for your area, you can apply too! it'll be good for us to know we have multiple people to help out.

So, let people know about this, and if you are interested, get working on your application today!

WGP Regional Applicants - please respond!

Jun 12 2014

We've emailed every single applicant with what you need to do next - we need you to get back to us before Monday. If you haven't gotten an email, check your Spam folder, or email us to check. Thanks!


Want a WGP Regional in your area? Here's how!

May 28 2014

UPDATED 6/11: Applications closed! Looks like EVERY Applicant that made it in before the 11th is conditionally approved (assuming they follow instructions!) Stay tuned mid-next-week for locations!

Apply today!

UPDATED 6/4: Still looking for more locations!
Apply today!

UPDATED 5/30: US/CN Visa (or citizenship) req.
UPDATED 5/29: Canadian Sites, JP/EN Card clarification (JP Only)
We're in the process of setting up the Regionals for this year's North American (US/Canada) WGP, and we need to determine where to hold our Regionals! If you are interested in having one in your area, please read and follow these instructions carefully!

Send us an email at :
The Subject should be "NA WGP Regional Request - TOWNNAME, ST", where TOWNNAME should be replaced by the name of the town you live in, and ST should be the 2-letter abbreviation your state uses.

The Body of the email should follow this format:

- Your Name
- Your Email
- Your Phone Number
- Your City and State
- The Name of the Location of the Regional
- Contact information / webiste of the Regional Location
- The maximum amount of player seating available (DO NOT ESTIMATE)
- If you've held a WS regional before
- 100 words or less on why your spot should be picked. Include approximate counts on local playerbase size, events held, and so on.

People requesting the Regional will still be able to play in it - if your location is selected, we will either send someone to judge it or assist you remotely.

The site you choose for the Regional cannot charge money in any way - the Regional must occur in a free location (no conventions with badge fees, no stores that would require an entry fee). We suggest working with a local game store, or a library. You must have permission to run it in this location. The location must have stable internet access, and you must have the ability to understand and follow instructions, and access to a phone for the duration of the tournament.

If selected, we will work with you to set up a Regional in your area in September / October, with Nationals occurring in Rochester, NY, some time in October / November.

Note that we do not have answers for many questions regarding tournament structure / format / number of spots / etc yet - while we work on details, we need to get a list of interested places first, and we won't know about an interested place without your input!

Be sure to let your friends know about this as well - if you talk about WS in English, post a link to this announcement, so we can get the word out as fast as possible. All applications must be in by June 10th.

Some notes on things we are in the process of working on:
- Regionals in Canada are allowed, and any player living in America or Canada (Citizenship not required - visa holders and citizens are both allowed) is allowed to win the National Tournament - winners must be able to fly from the US to Japan and back, possibly without accompaniment (esp. in case of Canadian winners). Once in Tokyo, we should be able to provide assistance, if we cannot fly one the same plane with you to Japan
- No Regionals outside USA / Canada
- English cards are not allowed, only Japanese cards are allowed

Again, please note - you must be able to follow instructions, fairly hand out promotional items, send back extras, do paperwork, and keep a cool head if you want to be an Assistant Organizer for a Regional. You'll still be able to play in it - we expect the more prominent players in each area to apply for their area - but if you can't handle deferring to a higher authority during a tournament, or explaining both sides of a question, bad things can happen. Please make sure you are mature and fair enough to be responsible for running an event before you apply.

Even if you know your friend applied for your area, you can apply too! it'll be good for us to know we have multiple people to help out.

So, let people know about this, and if you are interested, get working on your application!

WGP: West Coast Last-Chance Tournament announcement!

Sep 28 2013

We're having a Last-Chance event on the West Coast!


Mage's Realm, Sacramento, CA
Saturday, October 12th
11AM

Our apologies for not announcing it until now, there was a lot of paperwork to get through. :|

Please note that you cannot enter more than one Last-Chance Tournament, and due to the large number of players expected, you should really, REALLY pre-register ASAP.

There will be a minimum of 2 spots available at the tournament - we actually expect more of a 4-8 count, but we aren't 100% sure on the number yet, so we can't say for sure. We're going to try to split the total non-standard-Regional spots evenly between East and West Coast, but we can only go on the information we have at the time - we'll try our best.
Special thanks to Mage's Realm for working with us to get this event together!

WGP: Tournament Issues, Invite Notification

Sep 28 2013

During a thorough investigation, HotC has found that due to improperly followed tournament procedures, a small number of players were not given the proper opportunity to win an Invitation in their Regional Tournament. As such, those players will be receiving invites to the 2013 Nationals.
The Tournaments that contain the affected players are listed below. Players that have already received invites from these tournaments are still invited - no invites are being rescinded.
Players affected will be contacted through the contact method listed on their submitted decklist/their pre-registration information within the next 24 hours.


List of tournaments that contain one or more affected players:
Monterey Park, CA (Kira Kira Cards)
Cupertino, CA (Legends)
Temple City, CA (Desu-Nation)
Abington, MA (Battleground Games & Hobbies)
We are still in the process of auditing all of the regionals, and will post if there are further issues. In future events, HotC will be directly handling all pairing and seeding, to ensure that all players have a fair and impartial tournament experience.

Jul 17 2013

We are proud to announce the start of the Japanese WeiB Schwarz WGP 2013 USA National Championships!

Nationals will be sometime in October / November in Rochester NY, and the winner of that receives flight and hotel to the World Championship in Japan sometime in December / January! (Dates are still up in the air)

Want to go to Nationals? You have to qualify in a Regional. Where are the Regionals? That's up to you!

While we will be setting up regionals across the country, we realize that the US is a big place, and you might not be able to travel to one. So, from now until July 27th, we will be taking requests from stores and playgroups across the US, to set up Regionals to be played sometime in September in their area. If your store would like to hold a tournament, if your playgroup is large enough that you want to sponsor one yourself, if you want one at your convention, just follow the instructions below, and we'll review your request for a possible tournament location!

That's it! Okay, everyone, spread out and get us some requests! Got a playgroup in Maine, but no local store? Drop us a line! Are you the TO of a store in Colorado that really wants to run a big event? Let us know, ASAP! Also, please let your fellow WS players know about this - the window to start this process is very small, and we need to get the word out as fast as possible!

Click here to request a qualifier in your area! Application period closed!

While we realize this is not as exciting for the regular visitors to HotC, we understand their request.

Players may feel free to post their own decklists as they see fit on other sites, but until Nationals are completed, we will not be publishing detailed deck information of winners. Thank you for your understanding.
