Lords, we've put together some useful information about Leagues and their features for you. This will help you plan your strategy for taking part in Tournaments better.




A League is a number of Lords or Orders grouped by their Palace level or amount of Power, respectively. Leagues are necessary to ensure fair matchmaking in Tournaments. There are seven Leagues in the game: the lowest is the Sixth League, while the highest is the Royal League. For victory in some Tournaments, players who have been placed in the Royal League can receive special items: Sulfurum and Empire Ingots. 


Personal Tournaments 


When taking part in this type of Tournament, Lords earn points individually. 


Depending on your Palace level, you will be placed into one of the Leagues. The League you belong to is specified in both the Info and Ranking tabs of the personal Tournament window. To be promoted to a higher League, upgrade your Palace. 


You cannot change Leagues during a Tournament. If you improve your Palace during the Tournament, you will be promoted to the next League only when the Tournament is over. 


To be placed in the Royal League, you need to have a Palace of level 32 or higher. 




Special Tournaments 


The whole of your Order takes part in this type of Tournament. You are placed into one of the Leagues depending on the number of your Order's Power points – the total number of Power points of all the Lords who belong to this alliance. 


By earning Power points, the Order can be promoted to a higher League, while by losing points, it will end up in a lower League. 


Worldwide Tournaments 


Before the Orders War Tournament starts, an opposing Order is assigned to your alliance, based on the League to which you belong. This remains unchanged till the end of the Tournament. 


If you are victorious in the Orders War, your Master will get resources. The amount of these depends on the League your Order belongs to. 

In the Kingdoms War and Kingdoms War: Retribution, the rewards for a top position in the Tournament ranking also depend on your alliance's League and the ranking position that it achieves. 


If your Kingdom wins these Tournaments and you earned at least one point, you will get a reward for personal achievements (checkpoints you have passed). The size of the reward is determined by your personal League, not the Order's League. 


Era-defining Tournaments 


In the era-defining Conquest of the Dominion Tournament, there is no division into Leagues. Lords from all Kingdoms fight in order to capture and hold the Rampart of the Emperor. The Tournament takes place exclusively in the Dominion, and the winner becomes the Emperor. 


Which League do you and your Order belong to?

Nice post, thank you. Wrong thread for this, but nice post.


> You can cycle 100k Gold for 100 Special errands, providing a 50% discount.

I'm not following the 50% discount. Can you explain a bit better?


  1. 100k Gold →   50 Special Errands (@gp2,000ea.), ☑
  2. 200k Gold → 100 Special Errands (@gp2,000ea.), ☑ → 500k+ Personal (?) Points, ☑
    500k+ Personal (?) Points → 50 Special Errands (@pp10,000ea.), ☑

Ah. Gotcha. 2. gives you 50 more special errands, which would cost 1., for a total of 150 special errands for the cost of 100, effecting a 50% bonus (not discount).

That's not strictly true, but the premise is sound and an excellent point. [1. should give you 25 special errands effecting 125 for that 100 cost, leaving 2. actually effecting a 20% bonus.]

Did you mean personal points there?

Nice saying!

11k -xp- points?

rank 6 rewards? Did you mean checkpoint? [Thresholds in French.]

- this thread talks about event types and leagues. Are you saying Running 261 errands in KvKr will get you near checkpoint 6?


nm ... "Personal Errand Event". Cool, I'll have to look at what rewards checkpoint 6 brings, next time I see the event. Thank you!



I used (many) events to quickly raise Inquisitor experience points  so I could open up gear slots. Special errands seemed to be best for this (especially when needing Personal Points to get Adrian candles from the Order Store). [After that ... Platinum.] If Usual or VIP errand make more sense for this in your experience, please speak up.

Does this mean Citadel power is not a factor in League placement? [And how does one find this number? Order Power - Citadel Power? Citadel / Town Hall / Statistics / Total Power of Order Citadel? How to find this last number of another order?]


> Before the Orders War Tournament starts, an opposing Order is assigned to your alliance, based on the League to which you belong.

Is there any sort of matching process in play? e.g. Not the largest vs the smaller order within that League?
