Thanks! Can you respawn the guards, or when they die they die?

Not true. Look at how many small and medium sized alliances are already on the scoreboard...

Don't listen to him! only a few alliances should be participating in this alliance. Everyone else should definitely leave all of your troops safely in their cities, away from all the blood shed. 



Rubbish. Everyone should join in. This is a really fun tourney!

Yes totally! I'm proud when a tiny player comes and gleefully tells how he managed to hold one square for a few minutes or hours, sometimes with very few troops. 

I'm sure we will see the names of quite a few small alliances at the end of the tourney.

You could muck about with chat codes to see unit stats, but that's really only useful/convenient when you're helping people out over chat.  The rest of the time, why not share something a little simpler?

To receive a prize you must be an Eligible Player.

Eligible Players are any player who was involved in actual combat on one of the designated tournament squares on behalf of the alliance who is *still* in the same alliance when the tournament ends.  The alliance you are in when the tournament ends is the alliance you will be given the prizes (if any) for.  Involvement in combat is a pre-requisite for receiving a prize.

I do totally get the reasoning for this - on the other hand, doesn't it sort of discount anyone who may have been "active" in the tournament, but in a support role? There's plenty of ways to participate in the tournament without actually fighting. This is especially true for smaller/newer players.

Players with smaller cities/forces can support larger players by:
* Scouting and keeping their alliance apprised of what's going on
* Supplying resources to alliance mates where needed, even if they don't have the gold to support an army of their own.
* Sitting the accounts of players with larger armies as-needed

All of these activities would make them active participants in the tournament, but not make them eligible for prizes.

Is the answer for them to just send 1 sacrificial lamb to the proverbial slaughter just so they can "get on the board" as it were? Will that 1 troop be enough to make them eligible, even if it never actually held the square at all, or does it have to be part of an occupying force?

well i have the same question as Beriadanwen and another one:
-> my alt had no aliance when the tournament started.
-> then once i wanted to take part of it i joined AA that by the way is hiring people to make part of the tournament in they're side so that they get a reward
-> now i want to know if we ever win will i get rewarded with the praetorian guards?
assuming i take paart in a batle and i reinforce one of the sqares at least and i do not change aliance untill the end of the tournament

Luna, so just to clarify... 1) A player can send an army of two (commander & one unit) to attack a tournament square and be eligible if his/her alliance places in the top three; or 2) a player can have an army of two on a tournament square that is occupied by his/her alliance, and if it is attacked, they are eligible also if his/her alliance places in the top three.  Right?

My understanding is that it's any combat.  Say an alliance wins a tournament square.   Some small player in the alliance that won the square sent a commander and a bodyguard early in the tournament to that square.  Upon arrival, they encountered an overwhelming force from another alliance and their army is slaughtered.  They have not actually ever occupied the square.

In my understanding, that player still gets a prize.

On the other hand, say a player sends the same troop to the square and occupies it with the rest of his alliance.  During the time the player is there, no one attacks the square.  

That player does not get a prize for the square because he/she never participated in combat at that square.
