Cosmic Crown Showdown
We are excited to announce our Cosmic Crown Showdown! In this event, the best ladder players of the season duke it out for glory, prizes, and a pool of 500,000 platinum from the comfort of their own homes! Here’s how it works:

The top 64 players on each Ladder (constructed and limited) at the end of each season will get a ladder ticket that allows them to participate in this season’s Cosmic Crown Showdown. The showdown is broken up into two Stages which will take place in-client under the “Special” tab of the tournament screen.

Stage 1:

A Constructed Swiss tournament (with best 2-out-of-3 matches) for qualifying ladder players. The top 8 players from this Stage will move on to Stage 2.

Stage 2:

A Single-Elimination Draft tournament (with best 2-out-of-3 matches). The winner of Stage 2 will walk away with exclusive cosmetics and the lion’s share of the prize pool.


  • 1st Place: 200,000 Platinum and the Cosmic Crown Showdown Animated Sleeve
  • 2nd Place: 100,000 Platinum
  • 3rd-4th Place: 50,000 Platinum
  • 5th-8th Place: 25,000 Platinum
  • 9th-16th Place: 25 boosters from the current set
  • 17th-32nd Place: 10 boosters from the current set
  • 33rd-128th Place: 5 boosters from the current set

Note that we keep the 9th and 10th placed players from the Swiss tournament on Day 1 as standbys for the Single Elimination portion of the Cosmic Crown Showdown on Day 2. Should one or more of the finalists fail to show up for Stage 2, the 9th placed player will have a chance to join (2 minute response limit), before the 10th placed player will have a chance to do so (2 minute response limit). After this, the tournament will commence, even if there are fewer than 8 players present to avoid long wait times for the finalists.

Players who qualified for the final stage but don’t show up will be rewarded with the in-game rewards corresponding to the 9th place of Day 1.
