-Next event: Duelist Cup

The event will consist of two stages, the first starting on August 9 and the second on August 19, both ending on August 22 (as usual, time zones apply).
300 second time limit.
In the first stage, you need to increase your DLv. to DLv.20. You increase this level by winning Duels, and gradually you lose your DLv. will fall. DLv. won’t drop between levels 2-15, then it will only drop 2 levels beyond that, so you’ll only drop 17-15 and 19-17, then it won’t drop after DLv. 20.
After reaching DLv. 20, you can participate in the second stage.
In the second stage, you collect DP by winning Duels and you lose them by losing Duels.
Depending on your ranking in Duel Season 7 (July 2022), you get a boost in your starting DLv:
-Silver: DLv.3
-Gold: DLv.5
– Platinum: DLv.7
-Diamond: DLv.10
You will also get the corresponding level up rewards as if you started from DLv.1
Bronze and below will start from DLv.1

The rewards have yet to be revealed, so stay tuned for the start of the event.
