    The Grand Duke's Tournament

    This Event is organized by Portalarium and Travian Games and supported by members of the Shroud of the Avatar Community! No purchases necessary.

    The Grand Duke hereby announces the rules for the big tournament, to find the strongest Avatars of New Britannia (as requested by the mysterious traveler)

    TOURNAMENT SETTING:
    • This event is made for Groups of 5 (Party PvP).
    • The matches will take place in a 5 vs 5 setting.
    • A warrior is considdered defeated upon death. No ressurection allowed.
    • A team is considdered defeated once all 5 warriors are killed.
    • The tournament will take place if (at least) 8 teams submit.
    • Avatars of all adventurer levels are encouraged to participate! If sufficient teams of different adventurer levels apply, separate leagues (high-level, mid-level, low-level) might be created with adjusted prizes. This depends on the number of participating teams as well as the variety of adventurer levels.
    • Exact details such as schedule, leagues and pairings will be announced once the registration period is closed, on August 1 (We will try to schedule all matches on weekends).


    TOURNAMENT PROCEDURE:
    • The tournament will begin with qualification matches (group games). Each team will fight at least 2 matches before either being eliminated or proceeding to the next rounds.
    • Those qualification matches will take place in the Beran's Reach Arena on Saturday, August 11 at 1:00PM CT (20:00 CEST).
    • The matches will take place on several days (most likely on weekends) and in different locations. All locations provide space and facilities for spectators to watch and cheer for their teams.
    • The final matches (KO-System), including the grand final with the 2 best teams, will take place on the weekend August 10 - August 12.
      • Exact times and location to be announced after the qualification rounds.
      • The Grand Duke and his associate, the mysterious traveler, will be there to congratulate the wining team.


    PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS:
    • In order to participate, get together in a Team of 5 warriors.
    • Each player may participate in one team only.
      • Pick a name for your Team.
      • Teams are encouraged to wear a consistent team color.
      • Optional: During the tournament, all teams and the score-status will be published on the SotA Community platforms. We would like to display your team with your individual team emblem. If you like that idea, use the Blazon Builder to create an individual Blazon for your team and send a capture of the emblem to @Cerus, @Katla, @Ikas or @Menja (This is not mandatory).
    • Once you have a team of five Champions, register your team <HERE> until August 1.

    RULES AND REGULATIONS:

    The search for the strongest Avatars of Novia has started. May the best Team win!
    Good Luck, Avatars

    Tournament Stage 3: Ceremony

    Once the matches are finished, 3 things are going to happen:

    1) The winners will be congratulated by the event organizer (we received news that unfortunately the Grand Duke had some kind of accident. Therefore, his associate, the mysterious traveler will come to congratulate the winning team...)

    2) Afterwards, the two Teams who did not make it to the final will fight for the third place!

    3) The tournament will then be closed and the prizes will be sent to the winners in the following days.




    See you in the Arena, Avatars!

    I'm happy we got a full group now! However, some of us aren't too thrilled about it being on a Sunday.

    This is a standard POT, I suggest to leave foreign gravestones untouched, since this friendly PvP. On accident one can give up the ransom, so that the owner can claim it from the oracle without costs.

    Hopefully there are not to much deco surrounding the arena...

    Greetings Avatars,

    we have updated the details about tomorrows tournament.

    One of the 8 registered teams has tourned out to be a fake.
    However, we would like to proceed with the tournament nonetheless and hope that our participants and spectators will enjoy a few hours of fun tomorrow :)

    Please read all about the new 7-teams tournament setup in the Final Tournament Plan announcement.
