Wizards of the Coast has announced the Magic: The Gathering Arena Open, a new type of competitive event where players of all skill levels can win significant rewards beyond gold, gems and booster packs. The Open has an unlimited prize pool, with any players who make it to Day 2 and achieve seven wins before losing three matches earning $2,000 – and there’s no limit to the number of winners.
The Arena Open was revealed in this week’s State of the Game and takes the format of a two-day online competitive event in Magic: The Gathering Arena with people aiming to get real-world prizes.
