Tournament Of Champions - Update [July 8]

Greeting Survivors,

Thank you for participating in this past weekend’s Tournament of Champions All Out War qualifier. After a hard fought War, we have identified 32 qualifying regions based on total points scored. Read below for additional details on the Tournament of Champions and congratulations to all qualifying regions!

Tournament of Champions Overview

Tournament of Champions is a region based Cross-Region War tournament. Based on performance from the qualifying War, we’ve identified 32 regions that will be placed into a bracket-style tournament where one region will War head-to-head against another region, with the winner moving on to the next round. At the end of the tournament there will be one region left standing as the final victor.

Tournament Format

Below is the format that will be used throughout the tournament:

  • 32 Regions are broken into 4 groups in a bracket-style elimination format.
  • The winner of each group (4 regions) will compete in the Final Round.
  • 6v6 Cross-Region War between two regions (see bracket below)
  • Duration of each War: 24 hours

Rewards

Participation in the Tournament of Champions will give players an exciting milestone reward buff. All regions that make it through to each round will get a % increase in all event milestone rewards for a limited period of time (see table below for details).

Winner of ToC Qualifying Regions Round 1 Winners Round 2 Winners Round 3 Winners Finals Round Winner
Reward Increase Period 7/8 - 7/14 7/15 - 7/28 7/29 - 8/11 8/12 - 8/25 8/26 - 9/1
# Regions 32 16 8 4 1
% Increase 15% 25% 50% 75% 100%

The milestone reward buff is for all players on a region, regardless of a player’s participation or performance in the tournament. The further a region advances in the tournament, the longer and better their milestone reward buff is.

All of the following events will benefit from the Milestone Reward buff:

  • Solo & Faction Level Up Tournament
  • Solo & Faction Raid Tournament
  • Solo & Faction Survival Road Tournament
  • All War Tournaments (CRW, AOW and Blitz War)

Note on the Finals Round: The final round of the tournament will be fought by the four regions that win their respective groups. This means that the finals will not be fought by two regions, but rather, four regions in a Cross-Region War.

  • Round 1: 7/13

Wow

What was the need to transfer initially then? Couldn’t all regions have been entered and you choose the 32, or 64 to be adventurous, most active then? Seems like 8 of the 40 regions got shafted for moving for nothing.

In addition, this equals happy original regions, not unhappy regions who could care less about TOC for the new heighened whale competition

This is stupid.

So total region points win it?

This is so ass backwards.

You all didnt think any of this through. If there arent the same number of competitors in a region, there is a straight up advantage or disadvantage.

My region made it with 8 active factions. Should really not be fun.

Seems like a missed opportunity to not lock any regions and potentially attract people to move in with the bigger whales. Not force whales on unwilling people

Region tournament so does bell region automatically win this?

Best of the worst regions. Great idea on the bracket style format, but would have been better to see factions go at it, or qualify the regions that are actually active.

Precisely. What if the region you’re in is as dead as nails? You auto lose because of inactivity? :joy:

Wow. Just wow. And what about those 8 regions that were told they were a qualifying region and now aren’t good enough to make the next step? Basically wrecked the regions for nothing?

This is convoluted garbage. And if this was strictly region based and not faction based players would have handled the region transfers different. Sure I would let some whales kick my ass if it meant the region as a whole could qualify and I could better rewards

Basically Scopely turned whale factions into public enemy number 1 to be feared and many factions ran from them and now everyone has to cheer on their whales in hopes they can be carried to the promise land.
