TOURNAMENT IX - THE TINKERS' TOURNAMENT! 

The Tinkers have come up with some magnificent new clockwork creations that they wish to distribute to the finest commanders of these fair lands, and have chosen to run a tournament in order to find these individuals - people capable of leading troops both individually and as a group.

This is an alliance-based, king-of-the-hill tournament that will run throughout the month of September.

A secondary goal of this tournament is to test the Tournament API key in the background, and make sure that what it reports matches the data held in the backend system, as well as matches the expectations of those who wish for limited-data keys to run in parallel to full data keys for future player-run tournaments.

You DO NOT need to issue or share a Tournament API key (or any other API key) in order to participate in this tournament.  However, if you would like to participate in helping us test the Tournament API key, please go to your API keys page and issue a tournament api key, and then participate in the tournament as usual.  We'll pick it up from there.  

To issue an API key, go to this page: https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Player/Account?page=api and scroll down until you see the word "Tournament" and a 'Generate' button.  Please, again, note that you do not have to do this to participate in this tournament - it's entirely optional, and will simply help us out.

I'd also be grateful if the XML-minded amongst the playerbase would take some time to issue a key and check that it's returning data in the expected format, and to let me know if not.

If you don't know what an API key is, then don't worry about it at all - and read on!

We wish you all the best of luck!

TIMING, CREDIT & PEACE OF THE CAMP

The Tournament runs throughout the entire month of September.  From one second into Thursday the 1st of September through to Midnight on Friday the 30th of September, any member of any alliance in occupation of these squares receives credit for holding the square.

Credit is based on the length of occupation of each square.  Time occupied by an alliance on each square counts towards the Alliance total. 

This credit is on an alliance basis - individual players cannot participate in this tournament.

You are not allowed to leave your alliance, or be kicked from your alliance while you have any armies present on one of the Tournament Squares.

All NAPs, Confeds etc are suspended for the duration of this tournament for any military interaction on the Tournament Squares.  The Peace of the Camp rule *will not work* on these Tournament Squares.
