Play! Pokemon Team Challenge at Alternate Universes

Pokemon Team Challenge

Alternate Universes Wilmington is participating in the Play! Pokemon Team Challenge!

The Pokemon Team Challenge is a series of free tournaments held through Pokemon TCG Online, in conjunction with RK9 Labs. There will be four Qualifier tournaments for each participating Play! Store. The winners of the four Qualifiers will form a team to represent that store in the Play-Offs, culminating in a Grand Final between the top 2 stores’ teams!

To participate, make an account on RK9.gg, and join the official AU Discord server. RK9 will let you create a player profile to sign up for our Qualifier tournaments, as well as view pairings during each event. Joining our Discord will put you in touch with the other members of our community, including your future teammates (if you win!)

Download and install Pokemon TCG Online if not already installed, and make sure you play through the tutorial ahead of the event!

Click below to view our Qualifier tournaments and register!

Qualifier 1 — Saturday, December 19th
Qualifier 2 — Sunday, January 10th
Qualifier 3 — Sunday, January 31st
Qualifier 4 — Sunday, February 21st

Registration for each tournament opens eight days before the tournament date.

• Each Qualifier is Standard format, and only open to Masters division players. Qualifiers are Swiss-style with a Top cut based on the total number of players.
• Play-Offs are 3v3 Round-Robin elimination format between teams from different stores. Each team has a reserve player, who is on the bench. The reason is to ensure that a team can always be represented by 3 players (i.e. scheduling conflicts, connectivity issues, etc.) It’s recommended that teams rotate in-between events, to ensure all players get to play. The fourth player can also act as an advisor to the others!

See here for the full FAQ: https://tournamentcenter.gg/faq/

Qualifier participants will receive TCGO codes for digital booster packs! You may receive more depending on your record!
Participants will also receive codes for digital sleeves and deck boxes for having taken part in the event (distributed after the conclusion of Qualifiers).
The 1st place winner of each Qualifier will win a playmat, and be chosen to represent their store in the Play-Offs on a team with the three other winners!

Teams that make Top 256 will receive official Team Challenge playmats for the four Team Members (and for their judges). Teams that make Top 32 will receive additional Top 32 Team Challenge playmats for the four team members (and one for the store). You will also receive additional TCGO codes, depending on your ranking.

Top 8 Teams will receive additional physical product, distributed by their participating store. Prizes for the Grand Final winners will be announced in the future.

Alternate Universes Blue Bell is now a WPN Premium Store!

We are proud to announce that Alternate Universes Blue Bell in East Norriton, PA has officially been designated a WPN Premium Store!

Thanks to the hard work of our employees and the dedication of our community, AU Blue Bell has officially become a WPN Premium store. Over the past months, we’ve been working hard to improve our store and thus your playing experience with us. Our Blue Bell store has been remodeled with new paint, carpets, bathrooms, tables, signs, monitors, and more. Only about 5% of WPN retailers have become WPN Premium stores. Achieving this status means that we’ve reached a point where our store provides one of the highest quality gaming experiences you can get from any LGS, and it’s not just because of our looks. It’s because we as a business are committed to providing a very high quality experience to our players. When you come to our store, you can expect a clean, professional, friendly, and fun environment. And now that we’ve reached Premium status, we’ll be able to make your experience even better. We’ll be able to hold exclusive events when they’re available, and offer exclusive products and promos. You’ll notice a couple of other changes around the store as time goes on, and as we continue to work closely with Wizards of the Coast.

Thank you to our community. Without our thriving, enthusiastic, and all-around wonderful community of players these past 16 or so years, we wouldn’t have been considered for this achievement. Whether you have been with us from the beginning or have just learned about us this year, thank you! We look forward to continuing to provide the best gaming experience that we can, and we hope that you’ll continue to join us.
