At Reality Shift Games we strive to provide a tournament experience that players look forward to: good prizes, a friendly, comfortable environment, with a helpful and welcoming staff. With these ideals in mind, we have decided to start running our own Tournament Series consisting of 12 monthly tournaments culminating with an Invitational at the end of the year!
The series will alternate from month-to-month between the Modern and Standard formats. Each tournament will follow the payout structure of our previous Win A Case tournaments, with a case of the current set being given out for prizes at 20+ players (prizes will scale down if there are less than 20). The tournaments will have a $25 entry fee and planned to double as either a GPT or a pPTQ, meaning a planeswalker point modifier and a chance for either GP byes or an invite to the next RPTQ! All series events will be held at Competitive REL, with appropriate level judges on staff (Level 1 for most events, and Level 2 if it's for a pPTQ).
We have a pretty nice piece of art to be used for the series, to be featured on Playmats for Top 8 for each month, and a Champion Mat for first place!

The Invitational will take place at the end of the year and will feature the 12 monthly winners, plus the top 4 RSG Series points earners.
