1 / 40
Come join us for our first public tournament. Up to 40 teams will compete for a $4k+ prize pool where all of the entry fees will go towards the pool. So gather your friends: the more teams that sign up, the bigger the rewards will be!
You will compete over two days in a variety of events. The first day will be a series of events that will determine the top six teams that will compete in the finals the following week. The finals will be a series of events that will determine the top three teams that will win the tournament.
The tournament will take place over two days with each session lasting approximately four hours.
Each player will be using accounts provided by the Big Time team.
Some Shadowblade has shrouded the event details with a Smoke Poof but as we get closer to the tournament the smoke will lift and the full details will appear. The exact event details and points of measures will be disclosed latest 7 days before Day One.
If you have any questions please visit the #tournament-questions channel in VIG's Discord Server.
The first day, February 25th, consists of one round with one event. Only the six best teams will proceed to the fun on Day Two.
An all out battle royale where all teams compete to gather experience points. The primary focus will therefore be on efficient team play.
On the tournament's second day in Round B (March 4th), the remaining six teams will first compete against each other for the top four spots. The four best teams will then proceed to Round C, the finale. Here we will crown our Bronze, Silver and Gold champions!
Let's be honest: Quantum Fixers (QF) are just there to feed Chronomancers energy, right?
In this event, each team will be given two trials to achieve the fastest time on a dungeon with no QF healing. If the post summary reveals any healing was performed by any QF(s), that team's trial will be disqualified. Maximum time limit per trial = 35 minutes.
Each team will select a member to form a single team of six.
Each player on the newly constructed team must touch the boss door of a dungeon. During this run, the player must have successfully mined and collected a vein of ore to qualify for a time.
The players will be evaluated based on their best time out of three runs. Maximum time limit per trial = 15 minutes.
Referees will be responsible for designating the specific dungeon to be ran.
TTeams will nominate one member of their team to serve as an "intruder" to interfere with an opposing team's gameplay. Those who manage to do it exceptionally will be granted bonus points for their team.
Teams will compete against their adjacently ranked team, ie. 6-5, 4-3, 2-1.
The referees will take the teams to similar dungeons. There the final four teams will compete in six speed runs. The teams will be composed of four opposing team members and two referees. Each competitor team will compete a single speed run trial (i.e., every team member will be competing once). Failure to complete the race will disqualify the team from that single trial.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances leading to the tournament's cancellation, funds will be fully returned.
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the tournament to a later date due to the upcoming patch 0.25.
While this is very unfortunate, we believe that this is the best course of action.
We do not want to risk patch 0.25 to introduce new bugs and exploits that are untested and unaccounted for, while the tournament is ongoing.
We will announce the new dates as soon as possible and we truly appreciate the support from those that had pledged teams to the contest!
