In September 2018, we announced the start of a new era for the VS. 2PCG – Featured Formats (see that article https://www.upperdeckblog.com/2018/09/vs-system-2pcg-introducing-featured-formats/ ).
Today, we are excited to announce the next two Featured Formats — our 13th and 14th — for the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 Seasons – which will last through March 2022.
All tournaments sanctioned by Upper Deck will use these formats and we encourage community organized tournaments to use them as well.
Featured Format #13: Second Chance
It’s always good to be retrospective. This format will allow for just that: players will be able to enjoy a more recent, yet still broad, card pool from which to build.
Season: Fall 2021
Dates: October 1st 2021 through December 31st 2021
Rules: You can only use cards from the last two years (Volumes 3 and 4).
You may include any Basic Locations in your deck even if they’re not in Volume 3 or 4.
You may include any “wild” Special Locations in your deck that share a team affiliation with your Main Character or a Supporting Character in your deck, even if those locations are not in Volume 3 or 4.
The standard separation of Photographic and Illustrated Universes still applies.
Featured Format #14: Build an Arc
Take a crack at making an Arc of your own! Select three Issues and build a deck from the cards within.
Season: Winter 2022
Dates: January 1st 2022 through March 31st 2022
Rules: Select one Giant-Sized 200-card Issue, and any two different 55-card Issues and build a deck from the cards within. Your deck must be either Illustrated Universe or Photographic Universe. All 200-card sets including Legacy are legal. All 55-card sets including Crossovers are legal.
You may include any Basic Locations in your deck, even if they aren’t in the Arc you’ve built.
You may include any “wild” Special Locations in your deck that share a team affiliation with your Main Character or a Supporting Character in your deck, even if those locations are not in the Arc you’ve built.
All other Special Locations must be in the Issues you have selected for your Arc.
