PDC Dice Masters in 2017 – A New Direction

Pro Dice Circuit - New Direction

The goal of the Pro Dice Circuit is to bring you a fun, engaging and rewarding experience while playing Dice Masters. With that in mind, and after much discussion internally with our volunteer staff and listening to player and store feedback, we’ve decided to move away from the “Unlimited” format for the 2017 Season and focus on Draft and a new format that we are calling “Prime”.

The PDC Draft Championships will be familiar, as it is the standard Rainbow Draft that we all know and love! This is a popular format across the Dice Masters Community, and the feedback that we received from players and stores was that everyone wanted a friendly, yet competitive component to it. All BAC’s will be legal for this format, so come prepared with all of your cards, or just bring your trusted two that you always play with!

The PDC Prime Championships will focus on constructed play with the newest released sets, similar to the “Modern” format that is found in other CCG’s. For the first year of this format, all sets from World’s Finest forward will be legal including all OP, Team Packs and starters that were released with or after World’s Finest (Alt-Arts and Alt-Art OP’s rotate out with their original card). As additional sets are released, they will become legal for Prime play. Sets will be rotated out annually so that the format stays fresh, engaging, and open to new and seasoned players alike.

2017 Event Schedule

The 2017 Event Schedule will kick off with our Draft Store Championships, running from late February through March. This will coincide with the release of the new Batman™ so everyone will be making their first rolls with these cards together!

The next event will be the Prime Store Championships. These events will fire starting in April and will include newly released sets such as Batman™, the Iron Man and War Machine Starter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and The Defenders Team Pack, along with previous sets dating back to World’s Finest. We’re excited to see what types of teams and archetypes our Dice Masters players are able to create in this exciting and ever changing new format!

Our State Championship Series will be held in June-July for Draft and August-September for the Prime. More information will be available in the coming months about this and how stores can apply to host these exciting events.

The 2017 season will conclude with Regional Championships for both Draft and Prime in the latter half of the year. Again, information and specific scheduling will come as we get closer to the event.

We at The Pro Dice Circuit are thrilled to bring you not one, but two exciting new competitive formats this year, and hope that you will join us in playing in one or more of them. Make sure that you contact your FLGS to make sure they sign up to host a PDC event near you!
