    In France, we're not gonna have english Prerelease. Only Prerelease when cards are released in French ( it means in october/november for DP1 :D ).
    Hopefully, we're allowed to play with english cards ^^

    BR dates haven't been anounced, so... I guess we have to wait.. ^^

    Nope, in Germany you can buy DP both in German as well as in English.
    English MT will release in Germany on October 10th
    German MT will release on November 7th (at least that is the information at the moment).

    In France, we can play DP1. But we still don't know when MT will be allowed... This year is a total mess...

    Netherlands actually has 7 BR, starting October 6th. They're all in the locator too =)

    It surprises me that so many pre-releases are only starting late October/November. The Dutch release date was pushed forward from November 7 to October 10 because I assume they want us to go in sinc with the USA again.

    France

    We will have Autumn Battle Roads, but dates and location are not published yet.

    Prereleases ? Maybe, but not confirmed yet, but for sets in French only anyway.

    Format ? Like I said in another topic, if each European country has a different format, it will be impossible to run Premier Events this year as Premier Events have to be open tournaments to receive the status of Premier Event. But players will maybe be happy to change their deck according to a new format every time they go to play abroad :cool:

    I had announced HP-DP1 and DP2 as soon as it will be released in Europe. Logical as France has always followed the US/Europe format, even if US cards are not distributed in the country.
    We have no official information about the format, and we'll take a decision according to the one we'll have to play. But it is clear to me that HP-PK would be the most stupid thing to do, and running events to kill OP and destroy what we've built doesn't seem very interesting to me :nonono:


    EDIT : confirmed by PUI : format for France is HP-DP1 and each new set will enter the format as soon as it is released in Europe

    Thanks for the update Michel. So the question for tournament organisers who are hoping to attract some cross border players is just what are the European release dates for Mysterious Treasures.

    If anyone *knows* the release dates for MT in their country pleas post it and I'll add that to the first post. (I'm looking forward to this particular hiccup with dates being resolved quickly too Michel)

    In France there is no english prereleased so the french prerelleased (if one) will be in january/february. But we can play DP2 when they will be legal in Europe ...
