Players must have a valid Wizards Account to participate in future in-store gaming and e-sports events, in addition to other gaming opportunities. The Wizards Account works well with Magic: The Gathering Companion app, which is the new event tool for local game stores . Whoever plays Magic: The Gathering Arena already has a Wizards account.

"The future isn't just brighter and more connected for players—stores are going to have an easier time managing events and their play community as well."

- described Wizards of the Coast. Despite this, Wizards said that some events, including the Grand Prix, will continue to use DCI numbers until 2021.
