Participation minimums for a tournament to be sanctioned as a rated tournament are as follows:
- For individual tournaments, a minimum of eight (8) players must participate.
- For team and Two-Headed Giant tournaments, a minimum of four (4) teams must participate.
If the participation minimum is not met, the tournament is no longer DCI-sanctioned and will not provide Planeswalker Points. If participation minimums are not met for any DCI-sanctioned tournament, the Tournament Organizer should report the tournament as “Did Not Occur.”
