New Arena Mode: Grand Prix

In the March 8 update, a new Grand Prix mode will be added to the arena.
What is Grand Prix mode?

Summary:
The Grand Prix is an online tournament mode held over three stages in the Arena. In this mode, choose or create a deck to play against other players in a fixed number of matches. 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.

Three Stages:



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. From Stage 2, players will not be able to change their group.
Rules for the Chronogenesis Rotation Cup:
One round consists of 5 matches. Players can attempt up to 3 rounds per day.
Finish any round during Stage 1 with 4 or more wins to advance to Stage 2 in Group A

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.)

FINAL STAGE
Unlike the previous two stages, the Final Stage consists of one sudden-death round that can only be attempted once. Do you have what it takes to be crowned champion?

How to Play:
STAGE 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.

Disclaimer:
- Unclaimed rewards will be sent to your rewards crate after the tournament. If you do not see your rewards, try returning to the title screen and checking your crate again.
- You may be matched against players playing ranked matches during the Grand Prix.
- Decks used in the Final Stage may be featured in-game to other players after the tournament. (If you do not wish to have your deck featured, you can opt out of this when selecting your deck.)
