Path to hosting Regional Championship Qualifiers

DreamHack, their partners, and Melee are thrilled to kick off another round of Regional Championship Qualifiers helping drive players back to in-store organized play!

The process for applying to run Regional Championship Qualifiers (RCQs) for this round will be almost identical as the previous round.

For WPN Stores new to the program, DreamHack has partnered with Melee to create a seamless system from applying to host Regional Championship Qualifiers all the way to submitting the winner’s information. Here’s a breakdown of what they journey will look like:

  1. Create an Organization on Melee
  2. Apply to host RCQs on Melee (found below)
  3. DreamHack approves the application
  4. Purchase Event Kits and may purchase Top 8 Pins on Melee
    1. DreamHack will then ship Event Kits to the address(es) you provided
    2. Wizards of the Coast will create a template for your tournament(s) in EventLink
  5. Schedule and run your RCQs on EventLink
    1. Collect winner(s) information including their full name and Wizards account email address
  6. Submit winner information on Melee on the winners page
