Prize Money


TPCi has not currently announced the prize money for the 2019 season. Once its announced, this page will be updated to reflect this announcement.

International Championships

In a new move, there's a new way to earn stipends to the 2019 International Championships. Before, these trips were distributed based on the top players overall Championship Points. Now, they will be distributed through standalone time frames which means players who want the best chance at earning a Day 2 Worlds invite will need to perform well at events of all stages throughout the 2019 season.

Latin American Internationals: Trips to this event will be given out to the top Championship Points earner from April 30th - July 8th, 2018. Championship Points earned before this time frame won't count towards these trips.

Oceania Internationals: Trips to this event will be given out to the top Championship Points earner from July 9th - November 18th, 2018. Championship Points earned before this time frame won't count towards these trips.

European Internationals: Trips to this event will be given out to the top Championship Points earner from November 19th until the final date of Oceania Internationals. Championship Points earned before this time frame won't count towards these trips.

North American Internationals: Trips to this event will be given out to the top Championship Points earner from the day after Oceania Internationals to European Internationals. Championship Points earned before this time frame won't count towards these trips.

Qualifying for the World Championships

NOTE: We currently do not know how many Championship Points are needed to earn a Day 1 invite to the 2019 World Championships. This page will be updated once this information is announced.
.
Day Two invitations are divided by rating zones as followed:
  • Top 8 players in the United States and Canada
  • Top 16 players in Europe
  • Top 8 players in Latin America
  • Top 8 players in Oceania
Players in Japan and South Korea will be awarded Day 1 and Day 2 invites as determined by their countries' qualification system.

Players who finish Top 4 at the 2018 World Championships will receive both invites and travel awards to the 2019 World Championships. These players will earn Day 1 invites and play on Friday and can only play on Saturday with a Day 2 invite by qualifying through 2019 Championship Points.


NOTEAs of August 10, 2018, we currently do not know any prize money information for the VGC 2019 season. Or any of the information that was noted above. Once this information is made public, the proper updates will be made to this article.
