FAQ

How do I get the exclusive GP playmat?

There are quite a few ways to get the Playmat: The VIP package includes one, you can also get it by playing in one of the last chance trials (while supplies last) or one of the Sunday Super Series, and some are also given away in prizes in the side events. Also, all players playing in the Grand Prix on Sunday will receive one.

Does everyone get the Promo Ugin?

Everyone will receive the promo card (while supplies last); usually there are enough promos for everyone. Rarely attendance is much higher than expected and there may be a shortage which is why we indicate (while supplies last). Pre-register early so we can plan enough ahead of time. VIPs are guaranteed the promo card.

What is the maximum capacity for playuers at the Grand Prix?

Currently, the maximum capacity is for 1800 players. If preregistration leads us to believe that we need additional space to fit everyone, we will do our best to secure a bigger space. We will keep everyone updated on how preregistrations are doing so everybody can plan ahead.

If there are too many players, will I not get to play in the main event?

If you are preregistered you are guaranteed a spot in the main event.

I'm looking at registering for GP Toronto I just wanted to know if I register online if I have to be there on Friday March 20th to check in as well?

Check in on Friday is not required, the promo card will be given to everybody at the player meeting at the beginning of the tournament (while quantities last) on Saturday morning. On site on Friday, there will be a list of the pre-registered players as of Thursday. You will be able to check if the information and the number of byes are correct. This very recommended step will help us resolve any issues before they can happen. An updated list will be posted Saturday morning before the start of the tournament.

Can I register my friend using my account?

You cannot sign in twice, you need to register your friend with his name, DCI and email address but you can pay with your credit card/Paypal account.

What is the registration deadline?

Registration deadline: onsite and online is Friday November 21st at 11:59 pm. There is NO registration on Saturday morning.

What if we pre-register and then can’t go? Will there be refunds available?

Players should register only when they are 100% sure to attend the event. The pre-registration promotion is to give us the opportunity to plan ahead of time in terms of number of players and space. We will not be processing refunds unless something affecting a large number of individuals happens, (tsunami, airport shutdown, sand storm etc).

How many Grand Prix Trials will there be?

Grand Prix trials are firing up as soon as 32 players sign up; earliest is noon, latest is 8 p.m. In addition, there will be two special Grand Prix Trials that will start respectively at 10 am and at 5 pm.

Are you allowed to attend GP Ottawa without registering for the main event to just spectate and see the vendors?

The event is open to the public, spectators are welcome!

If I have byes do I need to be present for the player meeting?

Except for VIPs and players who signed up for the Sleep-in-Special, everyone needs to attend the player meeting at 9am. If you purchase the Sleep in Special, your sealed pool will be registered for you by one of the judges on staff. You will need to show up at least 45 minutes prior to the round you will begin play at to construct your deck. If you have one bye, the estimated time to be there is at 11:00, two byes, 12:15, three byes, 13:30 noon.

How will I know how many byes I got?

Byes are determined based on Planeswalker points. For more information on byes, please visit Wizard’s website

We will do our best to print a player list as soon as possible, you will find 1B, 2B or 3B next to your name, and the number represents how many byes you have. It’s the player’s responsibility to make sure they bring a proof of the number of byes they have. A print out of your account with your name and the number of points or the results of the GPT you won.

Will I be able to pay by credit card or debit card?

To speed up the process we will be taking only cash payments on site. If you want to register using a credit card, please pre-register here. Some of the vendors on site may accept credit or debit cards payments.

Do you accept US$ ?

Yes we do, at par.
