The first Magic: the Gathering Pro Tour of 2012 will be in Honolulu, Hawaii. Pro Tour Qualifiers for Magic: the Gathering Pro Tour Dark Ascension begin on October 1st in both paper Magic and on Magic Online. All paper qualifiers will be Innistrad Sealed, while Magic Online will utilize Magic 2012 until Innistrad has been released on Magic Online.
According to Wizards of the Coast:
“The Pro Tour returns to Hawaii in February as the marquee showcase of high-level Magic play. Pro Tour Dark Ascension in Honolulu will be February 10-12, one week after the release of Dark Ascension. By aligning the Pro Tour so closely to the launch of a new set, the Pro Tour becomes the exclamation point to the Dark Ascension release season. With the Pro Tour turning into a private event, Wizards of the Coast will increase the amount of coverage through streaming video, audio, text, live chat, and social media to make fans at home feel like a part of the event. Our expanded Pro Tour coverage will highlight the top players in the world showing off the latest deck ideas and strategies from the new set”
There will also be a whopping 15 Magic: the Gathering Grand Prix events held over eight countries in the first three months of the year. Better yet, the prize support for the 2012 Grand Prix schedule has bee increased and will “now offer between $10,000 and $40,000 in prize money, with the possibility that some events offer cash-equivalent prizes.”
