Mad for Miniatures is pleased to announce to you it will be running The South West YuGiOh Winter Cup Series (SWYWCS).

What is the South West YuGiOh Winter Cup Series?
The SWYWCS is an event hosted and run by Mad for Miniatures to try and find the best player in the South West of the UK, although this event is open to anyone and everyone who is willing to travel! Mad for Miniatures will be running a series of 3 qualifying events throughout the months of September, October and November at Mad for Miniatures.

How to qualify for the South West YuGiOh Winter Cup Series Final?
To Qualify for the Final you will have to win an invite by being one of the top 8 unqalified players in any 1 of the 3 qualifying tournaments held at Mad for Miniatures (dates below).

Qualifier 1 - Saturday 17th September 2011
Qualifier 2 - Saturday 29th October 2011
Qualifier 3 - Saturday 26th November 2011

The South West YuGiOh Winter Cup Qualifying Structure?
*  All SWYWCS qualifiers will be Advanced Constructed format.
*  All SWYWCS qualifiers will consist of a number of Swiss-style rounds, dependant on the number of
    participants as follows:

# of players            # of rounds
1-8                             3
9-16                           4
17-32                          5
33-64                          6
65-128                        7
129-256                       8

After those Swiss rounds, there will be a cut to the Top 8 players, who will continue to play in single-elimination.
There is a playoff match between the two semifinals losers, to determine 3rd and 4th place.
The top-finishing unqualified 8 players qualify for the SWYWCS Final. This means if a player has already qualified at one of the other events there place will be passed down to the next unqualified player.

What are the prizes for the SWYC Qualifiers?
