What are National Championships?

The National Championships follow Regional Championships in the Organized Play calendar and are the next level in competition, prizes, and prestige. A National Championship is representative of the competitive communities within a nation and throughout the rest of the world. These events are not exclusive to specific nationalities, and a National Championship is welcoming of all challengers who would compete for the title. The National Championships will have unique prizes that will not be available elsewhere and ownership of them will definitely make a player stand out in the field of competition. For more information, you can read our article on the Championship Series.

What Tournament Tier and Structure Will Be Used?
A National Championship is a reflection of the competitive communities within and around various countries spanning the globe. Players should come to these events expecting a high level of competition as competitors come from across the country. Due to the scope of the competition, you should expect there to be a custom tournament structure for each event. From the Fundamental Event Document: 

Premier Tournament Tier: Tournaments at this tier expect players to have a moderate amount of experience. Players should be familiar with not only the game rules, but also the event regulations. The focus is on a competitive and fair environment.
Custom Tournament Structure: A National Championship is a reflection of the competitive communities within and around various countries spanning the globe. Each National Championship is as unique as that nation itself, so each organizer will determine the unique custom tournament structure for their event.
