The Season 11 Crystal League Championship is Coming!

    • The Season 11 Crystal League Championship is Coming!



      The Season 11 Crystal League Championship is coming up very soon and we hope you’ve polished your weapons and dusted off your boots in time for this! All teams who won one Level 9 match or two or more Level 8 matches (with the same 5 characters) are invited to participate, with a bunch of brand-new and valuable prizes at stake.

      Here are the details which have been confirmed:


      GENERAL INFO
      • The Championship will take place on the following dates:
        • Saturday, March 6: 17:00 - 20:30 UTC
        • Sunday, March 7: 17:00 - 22:15 UTC
        • The above end times are approximate, depending on how long matches run on for
      • Battles will be full loot and players will have to bring their own gear
      • Matches will run on shorter timers to provide more flexibility on match slot times. Specific times will be allocated to the teams prior to each match. Teams should be prepared to play matches back-to-back if so required


      STRUCTURE

      We have determined the team starting positions and I've updated the visualization below!
      • The starting positions were determined by the team's performance in the Season 11 Crystal League.
      • In this case, as Purple Cobras was the only team that had one Level 9 win and two Level 8 wins, they get the head start to qualify early at Team 7.
      • However, as Day 1 is a Double Elimination bracket, any team that loses twice is out of the running, including Team 7.

      Here's a full visualization of the Championship structure:




      Notes:
      • The IP cap will be a soft cap, so for example with the IP Softcap 1500, IP above 1500 would reduce to 20%.
      • For all matches across March 6-7, each round won delivers Level 3 off-season rewards


      RULES
      • Participants have to use the same team (same character) that played in the Season 11 Crystal League Level 8 & 9
      • Each team can allocate one substitute in total for the entire Championship
      • Each team must assign a Captain to be the main point of contact between the Championship organizers, Game Masters and the team
      • All matches must be initiated via Energy Manipulator in Martlock (special tokens will provided to the teams prior to each match)
      • Teams must provide the following information to the Championship organizers (DM me on the forum) by Tuesday, March 2nd, 11 UTC:
        • List of team members
        • Substitute allocation
        • Captain allocation
      • Teams should only sign up for the match slots they have been allocated to by the Championship organizers and/or Game Masters

      • Use of legacy abilities that have been removed from an item (ie. Flash Heal on Q skill of Holy Staffs) is not allowed
      • Participating with 2 or more characters that belong to the same player is prohibited. This also includes participating in other teams on a different character.
      • Each team must act in the spirit of sportsmanship and work towards its own victory in all matches. If anyone is suspected of violating this, for instance, by colluding and/or not competing, they will be penalized


      Substitute rules
      • The substitute can be used in all matches
      • If a team decides to use its substitute in a match, the Captain should indicate this to the Game Master they are allocated to prior to the specific match
      • Substitutes for the winning teams will be awarded the same prizes as their team members
      • Changes to substitutes can be made up to 24 hours before the Championship starts. No further changes, for any reason, are allowed after that
