Regionals Team Standings

Posted in Event Coverage on June 27, 2003

Brian David-Marshall is a New York–based game designer who has been involved with Magic since 1994, when he started organizing tournaments and ran a Manhattan game store. Since then, he has been a judge, a player, and one of the longest-tenured columnists on, as he enters his second decade writing for the site. He is also the Pro Tour Historian and one of the commentators for the Pro Tour.

An experiment is brewing in San Diego. For the first time at US Nationals, Sideboard is tracking the results of each of the Regionals teams that were fielded from around the country. Most Regionals earn eight players a berth at Nationals and after three days of competition the team with the highest four performances will be awarded the title of Nationals Team Champions and all the players on that team will win a box of Scourge.

Obviously there are some wrinkles. Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico all field two winners. They have been combined as one team. There are also three US Military regionals that field two players each—they have also been combined to form one team. If this experiment is deemed successful there is a chance it will be continued next year—here and abroad—with the possibility of bigger prizes looming on the horizon.

6-0 performances by Mike McGee and James Cross buoyed the Mid-Atlantic and Mountain teams to the top of the standings. The most notable players on Regionals teams were Peter Szigeti (SoCal), Nate Heiss (Ohio), Peter Guevin (New England), Tony Tsai (Mid Atl)and Steven Shears (So Cal).
