How many players can earn the monetary rewards on Day 2?
As many as qualify! All players on Day 2 who earn six or seven wins will be eligible to receive the monetary rewards.
Can I qualify for Day 2 multiple times?
Players may qualify for Day 2 by earning enough wins in the Day 1 Best-of-One or Best-of-Three events. Qualifying multiple times (i.e. through both Day 1 events) will not grant you additional Tokens for Day 2 participation. On a related note, it is not required to qualify in both events to receive a Token for Day 2; qualifying in a single event is sufficient.
Is the Arena Open a part of the MPL/Magic esports?
Top finishers on Day 2 will be eligible to compete in an upcoming Qualifier Weekend event.
What should I do if I encounter an issue during the Arena Open?
