An event is "returned" when the results contain an error. Common examples include: events begun on the wrong date, uploaded with the wrong number of rounds, or ended too long after they began.

If you have a returned event, contact your local support office for assistance. Note, however, that not all returned events can be corrected.

If you have the event results, enter them and upload the event. If your upload is unsuccessful, contact your local support office.

If you do not have the results of a delinquent event, simply cancel the event.

Direct them to accounts.wizards.com to create a DCI account using a PC or smartphone.

If they can't get online, or they're under 13 years old, issue a temporary DCI card and use the number on that card to enter them into WER. They can activate their DCI account online at a later time.

All competitive level REL events require a judge.

  1. Grand Prix Trials (L1+ judge required)
  2. Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifiers (L2+ judge required)
  3. Premium Tournaments/Qualifiers (L2+ judge required)

However, all events benefit from having a judge present so consider having one available for casual events as well.

To become a judge, one should:

  1. Have some experience working at tournaments.
  2. Get in contact with other judges for help and mentoring.
  3. Learn the rules, policy, and procedures.
  4. Find any Level 2 or higher judge to administer your Level 1 certification test.

You can find more helpful tools and information to get started on the Magic Judge Wiki.

Judges help facilitate Magic events and act as neutral arbiters of the game. They ensure that the game is fair, friendly, and fun for all players involved in an event.

At store level, judges ensure events are run correctly and fairly for all players. They help players of all skill levels, give advice, and build communities. For more information, please see the Magic Judge Wiki.
