We’re gonna be launching our first ever Clan vs Clan Tournament very soon, and we wanted to tell you guys a little more about it.
The basics are simple; two Clans will be pitted against each other and will compete for some big rewards. Each Clan will earn Points for completing certain activities, and both Clans will be able to win rewards just for taking part. However, whichever Clan earns the most Points in each matchup will win that particular matchup and will get an extra load of rewards. And better yet, the more a Clan beats their opponent, and the bigger the difference between their Points, the better their rewards will be! The winner of each matchup will also get a nice little CvC Trophy attached to their Clan’s profile forever, showing how many CvC Tournaments they’ve won.
Our first, inaugural Clan vs Clan Tournament will only be open to a limited number of Clans (dependent on the Clan Rankings) while we figure out any kinks or issues with the feature. However, all subsequent Tournaments will be open to all Clans that meet the following criteria:
– The Clan must have 10 or more members
– The Clan must have earned at least 50 Clan Activity Stars in the last 7 days.
– So don’t worry if your Clan isn’t included in the first CvC Tournament – all Clans will be able to take part in future Tournaments as long as you meet those pretty easy requirements.
Individual player requirements are also fairly simple: Players will need to be a fully-fledged Clan member by the time the Tournament starts. Anyone joining a Clan after the Tournament has started won’t be able to take part in the Tournament. If you’re a verrrrrrry new player (meaning you haven’t completed Stage 1 of the Sewers of Arnoc in the Campaign on Normal, and you’re still taking part in your Novice Tournament), you won’t be able to take part either.
Those are the rules, but here’s the exciting part – rewards. You can win an abundance of items you all already know and love, but there are also two brand-new types of Accessories to win that are only available through CvC Tournaments.
They give your Champion a Shield equal to 5% of the damage they deal after they attack – giving your squishy damage dealers a big boost in the survival department. And like always, you can equip up to three of them for an even bigger Shield. They won’t give you a Shield based on Poison damage, or from Masteries that deal damage based on the enemy’s MAX HP (because that would be super broken), but Bloodshield Accessories are still very strong.
They give the wearer a 25% chance of changing any incoming Critical Hits into Normal Hits when they get attacked before their first Turn in every Round. This makes them a great fit for slower Champions who are in danger of being nuked out of the game before they get their turn. 3 Reaction Accessories mean 75% chance Critical Hits will feel like a tiny scratch – making them perfect to counter those speedy nukers.
