Duelists that compete and do well at select Tier 2 events throughout the course of the Dueling season can now receive "World Qualifying Points" to earn an invitation to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME World Championship through a World Qualifying Points Playoff.

Duelists receive World Qualifying Points by earning a World Championship Qualifier (WCQ) invite from the following events: Regional Qualifiers, Dragon Duels, OTS Championships, Nationals in Latin America, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series.

In addition to the invitations earned via World Qualifying Points, top-performing Duelists at their WCQ will continue to earn invitations to the World Championship.
