The Premier Play Program for Magic Online is introduced in 2020 to incorporate both the revamped Players Tour system and the Magic Online Championship Series into a single program.[1] Season 1 of the 2020 MTGO Premier Play Program began Tuesday, December 10, 2019.

Seasonal model[edit | edit source]

The Magic Online Premier Play features a seasonal model. For 2020, Wizards of the Coast split the year into shorter seasons of about seventeen weeks each. Each season had its own qualifying events and culminated in an eight-player in-person Champions Showcase (MOCS) with its own prize pool of $70,000 and an invitation to an upcoming Players Tour Finals. Once a qualifying season is over, the system will reset and start a new season.

Players only earn a single Premier Play entry object, Qualifier Points (QPs). With the seasonal reset, all earned QPs are be removed from players accounts before starting the new season.
