Tournaments are the more organized side of structured PvP. Tournament play is 5v5, but matches take place on the same maps that are used for hot join play. Tournaments will run with varying frequency, and different reward levels will allow some players to get their feet wet in the smaller tournaments while more-organized teams battle it out in the larger tournaments.
Tournaments come in the following flavors:
•Pickup Tournaments: These single-elimination tournaments wait for 8 teams to join before starting. Once they start, they go through 3 rounds of eliminations, with winners receiving qualifier points.
•Monthly Tournaments: For monthly tournaments, you'll need a certain amount of qualifier points to join.
•Yearly Tournaments: These grand tournaments feature the winners from the monthly tournaments slugging it out for the right to call themselves the best PvP players of the year.
•Player-Run Tournaments: These tournaments will be customized by players, allowing for great flexibility and unique bragging rights.
