This year will be big for tournaments as we begin the 2nd Official World Cup Event with many tournaments held within this!
How this works
There will be 6 events played within the World Cup, one every 2 weeks starting from February 12th. There will be individual posts explaining each event once they come.
Each player plays for a team of 5 players. YOU CAN ONLY FORM A TEAM WITH PLAYERS FROM YOUR REGION. It is possible for a region to have multiple teams.
All events are designed for 4 players per team playing. If all 5 team members show up to an event you can rotate them on/off the bench to your own liking.
Reserves are not allowed, however it is allowed to change a team member if something comes up that (potentially) disallows them to play. This can only be done once and means this player can no longer get back into that team during the event.
If a team swaps a team member their new roster must be clarified 30m before the start of an event. Of course this new team member must be from the same region. During an event you cannot swap team members.
From the first 5 events, the best 3 performances will count towards your team’s final scoring to qualify for the (final) 6th event. This means it is not at all necessary to have time for all events if you want to sign up. The specifics for finals qualification will be determined after seeing the participation in the first event.
What if less than 4 teammates can make it to an event?
It is possible to play some of the events with only 2 or 3 team members. You will of course be at a disadvantage. However, your team will not be completely helpless as the missing teammates will still count for half the average points. (E.g. 300 avg points per player in the match = 150 points for your missing teammate in a teams match (with the exception of VIP teams of course))

Finding a team / Signup
Where do I find players from my region?
In the discord there will be a
#wc-teamfinding channel where you can write “Looking for team in region [number] as [in-game-name]” to show that you are available in your region. If you see others from your region you can contact them on discord or in game to form a team.
When I have a team, how do I sign up?
One team member can write “Our WC team is in as [team name] with players [name],[name],[name],[name],[name]” under this forum post or in the
#wc-signup channel on Discord.
All events have the 10 gems per round system, and since it is impossible to get eliminated between tournaments this already guarantees around 300-500 gems simply from playing all the events

There will be no distribution of crowns in the first 5 tournaments but only gem distribution.
There will be a crown for the final tournament which is the Mixed game mode tournament.
Can I sign up as a team of 4 players?
Yes, but it brings the risk that you need all players to play every time if you want to perform well.
Can I sign up after the event has already started?
Yes, your qualification score is based on the sum of the best 3 event scores so it might even be theoretically possible to qualify for the finals even if you only played 2 events.
Until then, happy curving!
