Sure, if the Regional Winning Alliance chooses the 'Inactive Totem'.  

As above, in the FAQs:

In the end, everyone either stays resource neutral (if the "Inactive Totem" is chosen)... or they get something distinctly useful, chosen by the Regional Winning Alliance. 

Cheers,

Could there be some way for an alliance leader to force recall a player in that alliance's troops from a tourney square or some other way of dealing with this?

It's an interesting question, but I do rather see this as an edge case.  This scenario has been possible in any other previous tournament we've run, and hasn't happened before.  It would seem to me that a possible workaround would be for the alliance who wish to be rid of the player to simply recall all their own armies just before a large hit on the tournament square, leaving the disruptive player to take the hit on their own, and thus leaving them without any troops on a tournament square, and the ability to be kicked.  That is, if kicking someone from the alliance is deemed more important to the alliance leadership than potentially winning or losing the square. 

I think it's unlikely that we'll implement such a 'forced recall' process.  Alliances are responsible for their own recruitment and vetting procedures, and I'm not sure the dev team should be spending time on providing people with easy solutions to problems of their own making :)

Regards,

SC

My friend and I are having a debate. I know there are medals for top 3 times. Are there medals for regional wins?

No, no medals for regional wins, but the more awesome reward of getting to choose the regional totem.

Best,

I think that The Cornucopia is the most obvious choice at the moment but perhaps the Devs might like to consider other options in the future like a boost on a particular building type, or say a speed up in one troop or dippo type, magic range and efficiency etc etc.
Or a second positive if you select a suitable/corresponding negative.
There are plenty of possibilities that could make the choice more interesting and also difficult.
But all in all its a nice enrichment from the Devs.
