Release information

This card was awarded to the top three competitors from each age division in each of the regional Japanese Battle Road Spring 2007 tournaments held between March and April 2007. It was later awarded to competitors from each age division who won a battle at the 'Premier Stage' in the knockout-style Arena Challenge at Winter Challenge 2007 events held between November 2007 and January 2008. In order to progress to the 'Premier Stage', players had to attain seven stamps in their battle passport. A single stamp was earned by achieving a two-match winning streak; however, a two-match win or a loss at any stage required players to queue for the event again. For every three stamps earned in this way, players were also awarded Time-Space Distortion. Details of each event this card was awarded at are below.
