For players in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region (which includes Australia), the new CP requirements to earn a Day 1 invitation to the VGC World Championships have been lowered. The CP requirements for a Day 1 invitation for TCG have not been lowered. The amount of direct Day 2 invites for APAC players has also remained the same for both TCG & VGC.

Changes to the CP payouts for certain events have also been announced. For TCG events, the amount of CP awarded for placings at International Championships, Regional Championships and League Cups has been increased by 50CP, 20CP & 5CP respectively. Payouts for VGC events & TCG League Challenges have not altered. Event kickers and Best Finish limits for all events have also not changed.
These changes are retroactive and will, therefore, be applied to events that have already taken place – TCPi expects that they will have the leaderboards and player CP totals updated within the next 72 hours.
