Succeed In Tournaments And Win Vast Prizes!

Reach The Elite Tier For The Finest Rewards!


Lords and Ladies of Stormfall!


Tournaments are a noble way of proving your valor against other Lords and Ladies in the Kingdom. By taking part in these incredible in-game Events, you can win a range of wonderful prizes!


To level the playing field, similarly skilled Lords and Ladies are grouped into Tiers. This means that everyone has a fair chance of achieving top spot! Remember: the higher you place in your Tier, the greater your Reward for the Tournament will be!


There will also be recognition for those who achieve greatness on a global scale. The best performers in any Tournament will earn their place in the Elite Tier and receive an array of powerful Rewards!


It is easy to keep track of the latest standings from the Tournament window, in the Rankings tab. There you can find two subtabs: "My Tier" and "Elite Tier".


In the "My Tier" subtab, you can see how you are faring against the other players in your Tier, whereas the “Elite Tier” subtab displays a list of the Lords and Ladies who have made it to the very top!


Keep fighting to get spectacular Rewards! Only the best will conquer their Tiers!

This is complete misinformation - foobar


There is no level playing field and similar skilled players are NOT grouped into Tiers.
Lower level players do NOT have a fair chance because they are grouped into the same Tiers as much stronger players


Level 50 in the same Tier as Level 70 - How is this 'fair'?

What was the start date on that tournament Snowgoon? If it started before the tiers system was set up then it should have continued with the current setup? 
I think, therefore I game.

I don't see how you work that out - Every player can see the same Elite Tier and it will be filled with level 75+ before this tournament ends. These Highest level players will collect DOUBLE rewards because their names appear in BOTH tiers.

They are robbing the poor to feed the rich


I would like to know how many versions of 'My Tier' we have been allocated, and how this actually represents players of the same skill level - It was stated that this relates to success in previous tournaments, but that makes no sense at all

Plariums corruption with the greed of money is getting out of hand for awhile now. So why give high coiners pvp? Play for free as advertised, just catacomb. Wait for allies to betray each other. Its bound to happen if you dont let the bullies to advantage. They probably just go do BGs and get mad how they spent all this money on a game. Plus a lot coiners been maxing there credit card and reporting fraud and plarium just gives them negative sapphires and dont take troops away.


Just shows the credit ability of Plarium who gives a damn what happens to their own game.  


Not to mention its only a game and im happy spending my money on something that last longer then a few minutes.

Guys, those level 50 and level 70 have shown the same results in previous Tournaments, so their skills were defined as equal. That's the reason why they are in the same Tier right now. If a level 70 reaches the highest score in this Tournament, he'll compete with more qualified players in the next Tournament, etc.

Defined as equal because of previous tournament score ... so the level 50 got hammered in the previous tourney, lost his entire army but scored well in pvp, and the level 70 coasted his way through and got a bad score, so now you 'reward' them both by dropping them into the same tier?

There are many reasons why high level players could score badly in pvp - maybe they didn't bother to compete? - yet you reward them by placing them in an easy tier? This makes it impossible for mid-level players to compete
Maybe we should all ignore pvp for 2 - 3 weeks and get a really easy tier next time?
Absurd logic based on terrible number-crunching.


But none of this explains why the top players are rewarded in BOTH tiers

My Tier - http://prnt.sc/cmrf2n

Elite Tier - http://prnt.sc/cmrfdf


The Tournament Winner is handed 15,000 Sapphires from My Tier PLUS 7,500 Sapphires from Elite Tier


This is such a bad idea

How would you suggest to resolve this issue? Our developers have decided to implement this new feature to make Tournaments more fair. Of course there will be situations when one strong player did not participate in previous Tournaments, but came first in this one. But this is the single case.

  • Rib them apart into levels, level 40-50. 60-70 and 80+, these will solve everything

This new system will destroy all new solo pvp tournaments



The old system worked reasonably well.
I think there were 7 tiers which originally had 100 players in each tier awarded sapphires.
Novice, Amateur, Veteran, Elite etc

5-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61+

but a problem was allowed to develop which the original game designers failed to anticipate. Too many players in the top tier and too many coiners reaching very high levels.

All that needed to be done was to add new tiers

71-80, 81-90, 91-100, 100+


This new system is completely unfair and allows the coiners to ransack all new solo pvp tournaments - grabbing sapphires from both tiers and pushing all non-coiners out.

The solution is to transfer top players from My Tier to the new Elite Tier instead of handing them sapphires from both tiers.
The reduction from top 100 players to top 10 players in My Tier also needs to be scrapped.
There will be no point competing when we know that only the top ten will get sapphires

I have just reached level 1500 in Dawn of the Dragons and scored 20 billion in the latest Tournament, simply by spending Stamina, Energy etc

I have always hated the design concept of disposable armies
Armies are not disposable
We learnt this at Gallipoli
We learnt this at the Somme

but we can all run to the Healer and buy them all back again so everything is fine ... right?

So I'm in a tournament. It says I have collected 9025, but when I check the Fame it says I only have 6687. What's that about?

The tier system is based on how often you play a certain type of tournament it has nothing to do with levels so a level 65 castle that plays bg often is competing with high level players regardless of the level of bg


it has nothing to do with levels - there is no real balance in anything in this game

Actually, current system is more balanced as it takes into account the amount of points you've gained in previous Tournaments of that type. If you're not an active BG player and never scored high, you will be in the same Tier as a very active low- level BG player, that had the same amount of points as you did.

i haven't played bg in months so if I suddenly get the urge to waste troops on them I would be competing against lower level players and they wouldn't have a chance since my higher level bgs would gain way more points - it doesn't carry your past experience forever it goes based on how often you play them but i was a very active bg player in the past

as an after thought i also want to comment on the League Tournaments


there is no way a smaller league can compete with top 10 - we tried - some of my players could use a Lovar's as they don't have one yet


we managed 3rd position but there was NO WAY we could compete with the leagues in 1st and 2nd position every time we got remotely close they just pushed harder - with bigger players and more than double the members we just ran out of gas we could not get any further

Other leagues out of the top 10 im sure have gotten lovars, im "pretty" sure. Getting points of each other to get double points, The building and not losing troops for the months leading to the "concerted effort" is the hard part.
