Stage 1

  • The first stage of the KC cup plays very similar to the ranked ladder
  • For the November 2017 KC Cup, players raised their DLv by dueling, up to a max level of 20
  • Reaching stage 20 qualifies a player for stage 2 of the KC Cup
  • Gems, tickets, and gold were given to players as rewards for increasing their DLv

Stage 2

  • Stage 2 of the KC Cup follows an ELO system, with points gained/lost for each win or loss
  • Based on a player's global ranking at the end of the event, they will receive a certain amount of tickets as well as other rewards
  • The top 500 players of each region will be eligible to play in the Regional Representative Qualifiers for WCS 2018, and be exempt from the WCS qualifiers
  • Players who reached KOG rank for the 24th season of ranked duels (January) are automatically entered into stage 2, but can still play in stage 1 until Feb 15
