From 11:00 p.m., September 16 (PT), we will be kicking off the Gems of Fortune Cup Vol. 3!

Gems of Fortune is a special format that differs from other Grand Prix formats. Both players compete with a format-exclusive prebuilt deck consisting of 30 cards. The only cards in the deck are two spell cards: Gleaming Gem and Radiant Crystal. While all eight classes start off with the same deck, the cards generated by Gleaming Gem and Radiant Crystal will be determined by the class you choose. Also, players can attempt up to 5 rounds per day.

Gleaming Gem:
Banish a card in your hand.
Randomly put 2 different cards from your leader's class into your hand.

Radiant Crystal:
Banish a card in your hand.
Randomly put 2 different Gold or Legendary cards from your leader's class into your hand.

Event Rules


The Grand Prix is an online tournament mode held over three stages in the Arena. In Gems of Fortune, choose your class and play against other players using a deck of only Gleaming Gems and Radiant Crystals. During each stage of the tournament, you will be able to play a number of rounds daily to qualify or advance to the next stage—all three stages each have different conditions for advancing.



Stage 1


During Stage 1, players will be split into two groups based on the number of matches won after playing a round. Players can advance in Group A by completing a round with the minimum win requirement. Players who do not qualify for Group A will enter Stage 2 in Group B.
One round consists of 5 matches. Players can attempt up to 5 rounds per day.
Finish any round during Stage 1 with 4 or more wins to advance to Stage 2 in Group A. This applies even if you have won 4 times but did not go on to finish the fifth match in a round, or if in one round you qualify for Group A, but in the next round win fewer than 4 matches.

Stage 2


During Stage 2, players can qualify for the Final Stage by completing a round with the minimum win requirement. Players who are unable to qualify will not advance to the Final Stage. (Players will only need to qualify once to advance.)
Players who didn't participate in Stage 1 will automatically be placed in Group B for Stage 2.

Final Stage


The Final Stage can only be attempted once. Players who lose twice are eliminated from the round. Do you have what it takes to become a Grand Prix champion?

How to Play


Stages 1 and 2


You can play one round daily for free. If you wish to try again on the same day, you can buy another entry with crystals, rupies, or Grand Prix tickets.

Final Stage


You can play in the Final Stage for free if you have qualified through Stage 2.

Disclaimers:
- Your victories only count within the stage/round you played in and do not carry over into another one. Example: If you enter the Grand Prix on the final day of Stage 1 but didn't complete your matches, these victories will only be counted for that day. Stage 2 is a new day, and your victory count will be reset.
- Unclaimed rewards will be sent to your crate after the tournament. If you do not see your rewards, try returning to the title screen and checking your crate again.
