We are thrilled to announce the initial details of Shadowverse Open Esports 2022! As previously announced last year, WGP 2022 will no longer be taking place, but we are excited to transition to a revamped and refreshed tournament structure for 2022! We’ve got big cash prizes, new broadcasted tournaments, and more opportunities for you to win!
The tentative schedule for the SVO Esports 2022 competitive season can be seen below. Read on for more details about the events, format, and prizing!
SHADOWVERSE OPEN 2022
Competitive gamers, it’s time to put your skills to the test! Shadowverse Open in 2022 is now a card-set based tournament. Compete in 4 Shadowverse Open tournaments throughout the year within your respective regions (West and SEAO). Master the card-sets and challenge yourselves amongst some of the top players in the Shadowverse competitive scene with each new expansion.
Planned schedule for this year’s SVO:
Omen of Storms Cup: February
West – 2/19 (Sat) & 2/20 (Sun)
SEAO – 2/26 (Sat) & 2/27 (Sun)
24th Card Set Cup: May (TBD)
25th Card Set Cup: August (TBD)
26th Card Set Cup: November (TBD)
The format will remain the same as 2021’s SVO Monthly Cup, however, we will be removing the participation number limit per tournament. That’s right! The more, the merrier!
The tournament consists of 7 swiss rounds with 16 or 32 player playoffs on Day 1, followed by top 8 player single elimination broadcasted matches on Day 2.
All games will be conducted in Rotation, BO3 1 BAN, Conquest format.
In-game Tournament Mode will be utilized and all players will play on the same playing field with access to the same cards, so you won’t have to worry about collecting all the legendary cards!
Since the tournaments will be structured around the card sets rather than on a monthly basis, we wanted to make sure the best performing players are well rewarded.
The cash prize money will now be as follows!
We know how important bragging rights are which is why we have also made the addition of in-game champions’ flair, novelty prizes, and a custom SVO trophy!
We appreciate all the feedback the players and teams have provided and strive to continue to improve the SVO tournament experience for all!
