Last Saturday, our inaugural round of Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers (RPTQs) took place worldwide. Over 1,800 players competed in last weekend's RPTQs for a chance to earn a travel award and an invitation to Pro Tour Magic Origins, which takes place in Vancouver, British Columbia July 31-August 2.

Many players have been curious on what the attendance was at these Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers, and we'd like to provide this information to the public for everyone to see.

31 Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers took place during this round, with 29 of them awarding Pro Tour Magic Origins invitations to the Top 4 players, and two of them awarding eight invitations to the Pro Tour for having an attendance of greater than 128 players. The attendance of each RPTQ can be found below:

The total Regional Pro Tour Qualifier attendance amounts to 90% of the players who were qualified to play in an RPTQ last weekend.

The Top 8 decklists for the majority of these Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers will be posted in Mike Rosenberg's Organized Play article tomorrow morning.

The next round of Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers will take place June 27, 2015 in North America, Europe, and japan, and July 4, 2015 in Asia Pacific and Latin America. Remember, you may only play in one Regional Pro Tour Qualifier event each round. The Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifier (PPTQ) round that qualifies players for this next round of RPTQs is going on now, so find a local PPTQ near you, and maybe we'll see you at a Regional Pro Tour Qualifier in June and July.

We've already received some great feedback on this first round of Regional Pro Tour Qualifiers, but we're always interested in more.  Please let us know what you thought of your RPTQ by emailing ptqfeedback@wizards.com.
