Genius Invokation TCG Asia Invitational

Global interactive entertainment brand HoYoverse today announced that Genshin Impact will hold its first Genius Invokation TCG Asia Invitational in early 2024, with a prize pool of 500,000 CNY (approximately 69,900 USD). From January 11 to January 21, the top 16 players from the Dynamic Cup in the People's Republic of China and three different The Prince Cup Asian regional tournaments will be invited to compete in Shanghai. Genshin Impact fans and players from all over the world can watch matches live via @AstraCarnival on X, YouTube, and Twitch as well as @GenshinImpactOfficial on Twitch.

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world adventure RPG that brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat. Ever since its first release in September 2020, the game has continued to expand with new landscapes, stories, events, characters, and gameplay on PlayStation®, PC, Android, and iOS. In December 2022, Teyvat's most popular tabletop card dueling game, Genius Invokation TCG was first introduced as a new gameplay mode for Genshin Impact. Incorporating Genshin Impact's distinctive element-based combat system into a strategy card game, Genius Invokation TCG allows players to compete with NPCs or against each other using their card collection. The official international tournament Astra Carnival: The Prince Cup and the community tournament Cat's Tail Gathering were also launched in 2023.

The Asia Invitational will unfold in two main phases, the group stage and the knockout stage. Both stages adopt the double-elimination format in which contestants will be eliminated after losing the second game. In the group stage, the sixteen players will be randomly divided into four groups, and win in the best-of-three games to secure the eight spots from January 11 to 14. The knockout stage will last from January 19 to 21, which will see the eight advancing players facing off in intense best-of-five games. On the final day, the champion must outlast other competitors in a best-of-seven match to take home the trophy and the top prize of 250,000 CNY.

From January 11 to January 21, live streaming of the Genius Invokation TCG Asia Invitational will be available @AstraCarnival on X, YouTube, and Twitch. From January 20 to January 21, players can also watch matches @GenshinImpactOfficial on Twitch. Fans and players can also try out the card game in Genshin Impact and check out a series of new cards, NPCs, and duel modes recently added to Version 4.3 following the massive Fontaine expansion.
