Announcing Pauper Masters Online's second season!
It is with pride that we announce the details of the second season of the Pauper Masters Online tournament!
Pauper Masters will have a second season, starting in July, with the Qualifiers beggining on July 30th and running through November 27th, with the championship taking place on December 5th !However, before getting into this subject, I consider it important to comment on and share our experience so far.
Pauper Mastersis a project made by players for players, which started in November 2017 and whose objective was to promote the Pauper scene in Rio de Janeiro, where there were many players and communities spread across different parts of the city, but that there was no event that could bring them together in one place. In these years of existence, we have promoted several Pauper events in stores, held qualifiers for the LATAM Series and the Brazilian Paupr Nationals, and considering the pandemic, we could form an incredible partnership with Card Realm to create the circuit
Pauper Masters Online, and create an event that can, in the world of Magic Online, bring players together to play a competitive event made by players for players. I confess that, before the start of the first Pauper Masters Qualifier, we were nervous. We have countless stories we could tell of all kinds of stuff that happened in our events, and how they shaped a lot of the way we've sought to run our tournaments since then, but promoting events online was a new platform, a new audience, a new experience, and obviously, it brought new challenges. We had initial difficulties, but we could count on a lot of support from the CardsRealm team, and also from great event hosts like Tiago Fuguete and Raphael Martinez, who helped us keep the event organized, plan the best possibilities, work new ideas, among other things. And honestly, I don't know what I would do without that support, otherwise I would never have been able to announce that, now that we've reached the end of season one, Pauper Masters Online has been a success! In all, the Pauper Masters circuit had 185 registered players, 370 Tix of prize distributed among all events and even motivating players to join Magic Online, as the player
FSoeirocommented to us. I feel the event achieved its main goals. Also, despite not being in our initial plans, we ended up becoming part of something much bigger on the tournament circuits of Cards Realm and other servers with the partnerships we've created with other events and organizations, serving as a connection between events and among the players involved in these events. Therefore, I would like to deeply thank all the players, events and contributors who made the first season of Pauper Masters Online a success.
The Second Season
July 2021and running through
December 2021! And we'd like to start by announcing our two sponsors: Cards Realm will be sponsoring the second season of the Pauper Masters events and will be giving away free entries for the Pauper Masters Qualifiers to various events that take place on their website. It's important to mention that, unlike last season,
all the events mentioned below will have a free entry for the champion, which means that there will no longer be events giving entries to the Top 2!The reason for this change is our decision to cover more events and open up more opportunities for players to get their free entries throughout the week. Opening up a wider range of tournaments for players who cannot participate in events that previously had two entries, in addition to making them egalitarian and fair in terms of being part of the Pauper Masters Online circuit. These events are:
