Duelists that compete and do well at 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.
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. Players that make the Top Cut at the WCQ will also earn World Qualifying Points. For the 2022-2023 Season, Duelists that make the Top Cut at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship will also earn World Qualifying Points.
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.
The 2024 Regional Qualifier Season begins in August 2023 and extends until the Summer of 2024.
