The NGE Shadowverse Open has returned, bigger and better than ever – registration for Season 2 begins RIGHT NOW. Since Season 1, we’ve been hard at work addressing the community feedback we’ve received as we strive to create the ultimate competitive Shadowverse experience.
Europe Joins The Fray
The single most requested change was opening up the NGE Shadowverse Open to European players, that’s why for Season 2 we’re opening up the floodgates to players in both North America and Europe.

All New Game Format
We’ve rethought the Season 1 competitive format, and are moving to a Best of 3, 3 Deck 1 ban format. With this new format we expect to see much greater deck variety in Season 2, and ensure that one class doesn’t dominate the competitive landscape.
All New Season Format
Both North America and Europe will each have three qualifier tournaments, that will be followed by a month-long Invitational round robin, and culminate in a finals event.
North America Format
The top 3 players from each of the three qualifier tournaments will be invited to the Season 2 NA Invitational.
- They will be joined by the top 3 players from Season 1 who have already secured their spot in the Season 2 Invitational.
- The 12 players will compete in a rigorous round robin format as they vye for top position – the top 6 players will then move onto the Regional Finals.
- The final 6 players will compete in a Best of 3 Double Elimination Format, with the finals being a Best of 5 – the winner of which will be crowned our NA Season 2 Champion.
