World Championships Logo B&W

The World Championship is the pinnacle of Flesh and Blood competitive play. Represent your country and compete with the best Flesh and Blood players in the world across multiple formats at the inaugural Flesh and Blood World Championship. This invitation only event will take place November 2022, and will offer the opportunity to compete for the title of World Champion and a share of USD300,000 in prize money.

There are two primary pathways to the World Championship:

For those new to the concept of Flesh and Blood PTI's, they are invitations that do not expire and can be accumulated. You can see the number of PTI's you have in the statistics section of your GEM account profile. PTI's can be redeemed to participate at professional level tournaments that require an invitation. (Other eligibility criteria must still be met, such as primary country of residence for National Champs).

Secure a PTI and your place at the inaugural World Championship at the soon-to-be announced 2021 National Championship season that will take place in over 20 countries spanning the globe. The Road to Nationals starts in stores around the world from July 31.

Pro Tours are invitation only, with USD100,000 on the line at each event, along with the title of Pro Tour Champion! Pro Tours are planned for April in the US, and a yet to be decided non-US location in July.

There are three primary pathways to the Pro Tour:

  • Redeem a Professional Tournament Invitation (PTI).
  • Ratings based invitations.
  • Via a "use it or lose it" invitation awarded through the in-store Pro Quest season that feeds the Pro Tour.
