Tournaments are formatted as multi-stage Brawls that are first-come first-served, and are scheduled to begin at specific start times If the tournament is not completely filled by the start time, our system will generate the appropriate number of brackets and randomly assign byes* in the first stage After each stage of the tournament is finished, the winners are compiled and then Brawls are randomized for the next stage *Byes mean that the warrior will progress to the next stage of the tournament without fighting
During the registration process, Contenders select a Runes and Styles choice for their warrior.
Once a tournament is filled, it runs automatically to the finish. The number of stages depends on the number of participants. For a 64-person tournament, there are a total of 6 stages:

Registration Limits

To ensure inclusiveness for tournament play, at some point during the Alpha release, we will also be introducing limits for tournament participation. These limits may affect:
  • The number of tournaments that a warrior can be registered for at any given moment
  • The max number of warriors a player can enter into a single tournament
  • The number of tournaments a warrior can enter within a 24 hour period

Community Feedback

During the Alpha launch, we will work with the community to iterate, adjust, and ensure that we can deliver the most rewarding tournament experiences we can to our Contenders.
