Any player is welcome to attend any of the Nationals being run throughout the year. There is currently NO requirement for being able to attend any official Battlefront event except Masters.
Convention fees to purchase a badge to attend the event hosting the tournament are the individual player's responsibility and should be done before attending the tournament.
For the 2017 season, the following players will receive an automatic invite to Masters:
1. The 2016 Masters Champion.
2, Winner of Bane of War (Southern Nationals).
3. Winner of Adepticon Double Nationals.
4. Winner of Adepticon Double Nationals.
5. Winner of West Coast Nationals.
6. Winner of the Nationals at Historicon.
7. Winner of Canadian Nationals.
8. Number one ranked Canadian player (if not previously invited).
Battlefront will have the top 32 players on the results list pulled from WWPD Rankings from 5 October. The highest ten players not already being invited will receive invitations, if there is a decline, that invitation will proceed to the next highest pointed player not invited.
If the number one Canadian Player declines the invitation, that spot will be offered to the next player in the top 32, NOT the next highest ranked Canadian.
The invites will continue until either 18 players have accepted or the invite list reaches the 32nd overall ranked player.
Any changes will be announced at the end of the season to be implemented in the next season.
