Welcome players to our 2015 Tournament Point System!
I would like to thank everyone for this past year of awesome growth and support for our point system. This was the first year we have ever tried this, it was a huge success overall. With that said, we also know there are some problems with the system. The tiers of rewards were too spaced out, there wasn’t enough to offer players who didn’t often travel to our events, and once the points expire they have no additional use or value.
The 2015 season is upon us and as of today, players will be receiving the new and improved 2015 points. We made some upgrades to the art, as well as some extended value of the point cards.
WELCOME THE NEW 2015 ONE POINT CARD – THE GOBLIN TOKEN!
The point cards are now collectible tokens that are usable for as long as you keep them. We have kept the same values of the points; 1, 5, and 10. Each value has a token creature associated with it and they are tradable with other players or can be used in any matter you see fit. Once you earn them, they are yours to keep.
Rewards were one reoccurring request from players we have received. Some of the goals were too hard to reach or not valuable enough for your effort. We have heard you loud and clear, and are changing our reward structure to be more stream lined and easier to achieve. First, I would like to say that every weekly event for all collectible card games we host will reward KGS Points. These points are good for entry into any card game event we host as well, no restrictions. If you receive them playing Magic and then want to use them to enter Dragon Ball Z, that is awesome. If a tournament allows the player to receive booster packs upon entry, they will still receive those entry prize packs with no restrictions.
The new point chart is designed to clear any confusion about how and what these points are for. These points are collectible and they are used as entry into events in our store. We don’t want the awesomeness of these points to be lost in a huge scheme of rewards. We also have some limited edition tokens planned, so there will always be some awesome tokens to receive.
3 Points – Bottle of water
10 Points – Entry into any weekly constructed event
25 Points – Entry into any weekly booster draft event
30 Points – KGS Play mat or T-shirt
50 Points – Entry into any event of $50 or less
100 Points – $40 store credit
These point cards will rewarded at weekly and larger events. Every player will receive at least one point for playing in a weekly event.
Lastly, we know that we are late on this announcement for our 2015 point system. We are sorry! To make up for this, anyone with 2014 points will be able to use them for the entire month of January. They will all expire January 31st, 2015. We will be handing out our 2015 points as of today (12/2/14) so stop down, play in events, and get some points!
