Though we have a startling amount of free cards and loot lined up for OI Giveaways entrants, for the first time we’re revealing everything the OI invitees are playing for. Check out what’s at stake.
The winner of the 2022 Omega Invitational will join Hawkhammer (the 2022 CCL winner) and [BF] Champion (the Season One points winner) in receiving a 2022 Kup trophy – the OI winner receiving the Omega Kup, Hawkhammer receiving the CCL Kup, and [BF] Champion receiving the Online Seasonal Kup. The OI winner will also receive the [Champion] role in Discord until the end of Waste|Lands Tournament Season Two.
If the OI winner is not Hawkhammer or [BF] Champion (who already have this right), they will win the right to design with Team Bayformers a character for an upcoming release. Covered by Team Bayformers are all costs, including art commissions and production costs. All characters created by a 2022 Kup winner will be branded with the name of the winner. If Hawkhammer or [BF] Champion wins the OI, this right will pass to the 2nd place player (and so forth).
All OI invitees either already received or are receiving an OI playmat featuring Gilthor, Chained Amalgamation.
The Top 8 from the OI will all receive OI card sleeves from Dragon Shield.
Those OI invitees that rank highly and do not win a 2022 Kup or rights to create a character have access to choose from the following prizes:
- The right to make a request of Zero for a future feature of teletraan1.net
- A Wave 4 SRT Optimus Prime, Galactic Commander, signed by original voice actor Garry Chalk
- A mint-in-sealed-box TFcon LA exclusive Fans Hobby Master Builder MB-148 Arson
