Bushiroad announced the new international tournament circuit for its English edition trading card games, titled Bushiroad Championship Series. The trading card games included are Cardfight!! Vanguard, Weiss Schwarz, Future Card Buddyfight and Luck & Logic. This series will commence in early 2017 and aims to improve players’ tournament experience by introducing changes to the tournament format and structure.
The Bushiroad Championship Series 2017 (BCS2017) will be held across an entire year and consists of a Spring and Autumn Circuit. Each Circuit will include Shop Challenges as well as Regional Championships. As a tie-in to the international tournament circuit, Shop Challenge winners will be awarded free byes that can be used as an advantage at the Regional Championships.
Differing from previous years, the BCS2017 will be offering every champion of a main tournament at the Regional Championships, a fully sponsored invitation to the World Finals in Japan. This should mark the highest attendance for an English edition World Finals since the launch of an international tournament circuit. The World Finals will take place after the conclusion of both the Spring and Autumn Circuits.
Details on the Shop Challenge and Regional Championship locations will be available on the event page (http://bushiroad.com/en/events/bcs2017/ ) in early 2017.
All trading card games will be adopting a Swiss tournament format. The biggest change for the BCS2017 is the inclusion of a second day, best of three tournament, for the top cut of players in a majority of Cardfight!! Vanguard Regional Championships. These changes are introduced in a bid to enhance the tournament experience for both competitive and casual players.
Details of the tournament formats are as follow:
