I would speculate that their def would be low - but their attack and speed will probably be high.
Furthermore, they will most likely have high magic resistance.  

Those are my guesses from analyzing the picture they provided.

 Why one of the main prizes is a SWORD!!!  when knights (cavalry) cannot use swords?  :(

 It is hard to imagine a knight without his sword ... well, here yes :(


 @SunStorm: naked blue-painted men? the smurfs? I bet the stats are gonna be quite low ...

About the units and swords: I asked Luna just before the start of the tournament if those rewards were in a form that she could share with us, and she indicated not so much.  So either the devs haven't decided on the specifics yet, or they want to keep the numbers a secret (maybe a surprise will make the rewards more exciting?).  

Personally, I think they're just still in the works, given how much detail we got about other aspects (the rewards in general, like prestige values for example).

Has anyone got the stats on those naked blue-painted men?

Isn't that what the "last reaper" thing shows in the tourney squares page for?
The devs adopted Rill's suggestion before you posted... ;-)

The devs are, as always, extremely awesome.  Thanks so much for listening to players, and if I haven't mentioned it lately, you guys (and gals) rock!

Thanks for the tournament!

If the tourney started at midnight and you got to it before the start, why is it a bug?

Alliances require teamwork to win these things. I trust that teamwork can be extended to the prizes as well.

But why should teamwork need to be extended for something like prizes? Especially when awarding prestige is something much easier for a developer to do than it is for an entire alliance to do? it seems ridiculous to have to work for a tourney and then work to make sure our members get their proper reward. 

Besides, even if people don't abuse it and kick players from the alliance, there is the issue of unfair prestige distribution. It would be extremely difficult for an alliance to tell who was involved in the tournament and who was not, meaning if an alliance of 100 players won but 25 of those players did nothing to contribute, there would be no way to tell and thus, they were receive a cut of the prestige. Where as if the devs sent it to players individually, that wouldn't happen and may reduce the number of people not doing anything, hoping their alliance will pick up on their slack. 

If players want the prestige won to be in the alliance pool they could donate it after it was awarded directly to them. The idea of placing it in the alliance pool seems to be all negative on the player side.

Does it bother anyone else that there's no way to tell who is currently occupying a tournament square?  The alliance listed on the "Squares" overview page is the alliance that has collected the most squares so far.  The square detail page lists the battles, but of course not who won, and then also includes a list of people who have gotten souls on the square, information which makes the "Top Alliance" on the Squares overview page redundant.

I personally would VASTLY prefer to have the alliance that is CURRENTLY OCCUPYING the square (at least as of the last hour mark) represented on the Squares overview page.  The overall square leader might be set in the first two weeks of the tournament and then never change for some squares that could be hotly contested later on, and this page will never show relevant information.
