TOURNAMENT VIII - THE KING'S RUBY JUBILEE AND TOURNAMENT OF THE DRAGONS! 

Even though many of his scholars are continuing to work on finding the exact date for the Kingdom to use, it is now known that King Sigurd has been in rule for 25 years! During that time, the land has seen unprecedented growth and  prosperity, but there have been dark moments as well. In celebration of the good and in mourning for the dead, he has decided to host a new tournament: 

The Tournament of the Dragons!

RULES:

37 squares (one for each region that do not move from their location) have been designated as Tournament Squares, as follows:

[138|-479] in ArranLarge Forest

From Midnight on the 26th of April through to Midnight on the 24th of May, 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.

Alliance NAPs and Confederations are suspended on these squares from now until the end of the tournament, so the "Peace of the Camp" rule (outside of your own Alliance) has been suspended for combat on these squares.

The ability to either quit an alliance, join a new alliance or be kicked from an alliance has been suspended whilst the player trying to quit/be kicked has troops occupying one of the tournament squares.  You must remove your troops from the tournament squares in order to change alliances during the tournament.

PRIZES

REGIONAL PRIZES

1) One square per region is designated a tournament square
2) The alliance that holds that square for the longest period of time, from 00:01 server time on Saturday 26th April to 23:59 on Saturday 24th of May) is the Regional Winning Alliance.
3) All players that belong to the Regional Winning Alliance who were involved in holding - and defending - that square (they must be involved in combat on the square at least once during the month) receive a Regional Prize.

GLOBAL PRIZES

1) All activity on these tournament squares in each region will also be aggregated, so the top 3 alliances that overall have the most amount of possession across all squares will be the Global Winning Alliances, ranked First, Second and Third.
2) This runs for the same period of time: from 00:01 server time on Saturday 26th April to 23:59 on Saturday 24th of May).
3) All players that belong to the Global Winning Alliances who were involved in holding - and defending - that square (they must be involved in combat on the square at least once during the month) receive a Global Prize.

PRIZES

Regional Winners get 30 prestige each and 10 Elite Praetorians per participating player delivered to their Capital City, per square that they win.

Global Winners get a custom medal - and in addition to whatever they receive for their regional victories:

  1. First place: Alliance Tournament Statue to be added to the map at a location of choice
    Unique unit: 1 x Dragon Revenant  for each player in the global winning alliance
     
  2. Second place: Alliance Tournament Statue to be added to the map at a location of choice
    - Unique unit: 1 x Bone Dragon  for each player in the global winning alliance
     
  3. Third place: Alliance Tournament Statue to be added to the map at a location of choice
    - Unique unit: 1 x Bone Drake  for each player in the global winning alliance


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.

We wish you luck!

GM Rikoo, voice of The King

If we know King Sigurd has been in rule for 25 years, then it is the year 1037.


"The eldest of the three sons of the revered King Drendor (blessings be upon he who now resides in the celestial Ancestral Lands) King Sigurd was called to his rule in the year 1012, at the tender age of 15.

"...individual players cannot participate in this tournament."

It seems that non-allied players are discriminated against.

1) Make an alliance for yourself, by yourself

2) Temporarily join an alliance and help out in a number of ways

There are players who are offering to form temp. alliances in chat right now. :)
