About the GLC Battle League:

For those interested in the Gym Leader Challenge format, we are running a special 3-month GLC Battle League. Participants are invited to play as often as their schedule permits. We will be keeping a leaderboard, with the top players invited to a finals tournament in July. Hosted by MikeIsMyIke on the PTCGO League Discord Server.

Please review the tournament rules & structure outlined below.


Register for the tournament & submit your decklist here on Limitless prior to the start of the event.

Since we are opening registration a week out, you'll also need to complete Check-In (opens 48 hours prior to the start time) to confirm that you intend to play.

IMPORTANT: This is NOT a live event! Players will have 3 days to complete each best-of-3 match with their opponent. Players are responsible for timely contact with their opponent to coordinate a time to play. If you are miss check-in or are unresponsive to messages from your opponents or the organizers, you will receive the match loss.


Your deck must follow the current rules of the Gym Leader Challenge format.

Decklist submission is required prior to the start of the event. Once matches begin, decklists will become public knowledge.


Single-Elimination Bracket // Best of 3 Match

You will play a best-of-3 set against your opponent; the first player to win 2 individual games is the match winner. The winner advances to the next round; the loser is eliminated.

We offer flexible scheduling; players will have up to 3 Days to complete their match against each opponent.

You MUST check in on Limitless and contact your opponent within the first 24 hours of the round or you will receive the loss.


Deck Sharing ON: The Deck List Sharing feature must always be turned ON in the game settings.

Match Timers ON: When you challenge your opponent you must always enable the Timed Match option.

Going First/Second: The winner of the coin flip decides who goes first for Game 1. For Games 2 & 3 in best-of-three matches, the loser of the prior game gets to decide who goes first. (In cases where the winner of the previous game wins the coin flip and selects the wrong option by accident, the opponent is entitled to request a restart of the affected game).

Wrong Deck Selected: If a player chooses the wrong deck by accident, they must declare so immediately before any actions are taken. If Deck Sharing is on, the opposing player should be able to verify that the deck was in fact incorrect and the game should be replayed. If any conditions above are not met, the result is a game loss.

Disconnections/Leaving a Game: In the event of a disconnect, the timer will continue to run while the player attempts to reconnect. If the game ends the match due to inactivity or a player leaves the game for any other reason, it is considered a game loss.

Need Help?: Please notify the organizer immediately if you have any concerns. Use the Request a Judge button here on Limitless or get in touch with @rabidragon#3983 or @MikeIsMyIke#8619 on our league's Discord.
