Ranked Season Qualification on MTG Arena
As shared today, our competitive structures will move to set-based competitive seasons beginning with Zendikar Rising. The June 2020 Ranked Season on MTG Arena will continue invitation of the top 1,200 Mythic-ranked competitors to a qualifier event that leads to the highest levels of Magic Esports. July and August 2020 Ranked Season play will as well.

More details about the Zendikar Season, and what these events qualify into, will be shared later this summer.
Qualifying paths are wrapping up, but there is still time for players to earn invitation for upcoming events.
- Magic Online Super Qualifiers run regularly through June 7.
- Online qualifiers through ChannelFireball Events run daily through June 15.

What Comes Next
The first Arena Open starts on May 30, with players who make Day 2 able to earn up to $2,000 based on their win record in this first iteration. As shared today, starting this (northern hemisphere) fall, rather than commit to a year-long season when there is so much unknown we'll be shifting to set-based competitive seasons.
Later this summer we'll be sharing details around the Zendikar Season of competitive play. There will be a Swiss-style, best-of-three championship fed by qualifiers and played for prize money with coverage at the end. And as we look to 2021, we're planning to be adaptable and flexible as pandemic conditions evolve and as we test and learn from online remote-play competitions.
