The time has come, for new Warzone series to begin. They'll come in variety of stages, as time goes by, there will be more details posted around them as they come closer, right now the 1st stage qualification will be commencing soon. The goal of this event cycle is reaching the final stage, while overcoming big challenges over way.

1st stage will begin with 5+ twenty player round robin tournaments. Once one tournament is filled, another is made. Each tournament will have a unique template, likely made specifically for the tournament and not widely played before. There's possibility for any setting to be included in the templates.

Each tournament will have these set settings:
  • 4 days boot time,
  • 2 games played at a single time,
  • respected vacations,
  • attack only,
  • transfer only,
  • attack by percentage


Minimal prerequisites for joining:
  • 50 games played
  • 25 1v1 games completed
  • 25% maximum last 100 games bootrate
  • Base understanding of English


Each tournament will be voluntary to join, players can join as many tournaments as they want and ignore any tournament they dislike. Templates will be made by me, they will not adhere to any specific rules and will be made to be fair for both players during the game. I will not try to make them in a certain 'strategic' manner, main drive of these tournaments will be their unique settings. I'll make sure that there are multiple ways to play on the templates, there will be no 'loto' templates in the tournaments, the outcome of games will be largely decided by skill.

These tournaments will be made constantly, exact schedule is not known at this time, but at least 5 tournaments will be made at the start. To qualify to next phase player will need to win his respective 20 player tournament, players who finish 2nd-5th, will have a chance to qualify too. After first 5 tournaments there will be made another 20 player tournament consisting of players who were 2nd-5th in previous tournaments and in this tournament they will have to get placed 2nd-5th again to qualify further.

In the 2nd phase each player will play 10 games versus 10 different players on 10 different templates. This time the templates will be more standard, likely to be carbon copies of various ladders or quickmatch templates. The opponents player will face will be around the strength of ladder top 10 players (maybe weaker if I have bad luck finding enough stronger players). Player only needs to win 40% of your games to move forward.

In 3rd phase, player will play 5 team games together with other players and will be asked to be team leader. This will include reviewing past games with opponents, reviewing sample game examples to analyze potential play style of opponents. Player will need to be ready to defend his positions with mathematical arguments or psychological analysis of opponent. Being leader includes the obvious: making team picks, suggesting moves, answering team mate questions, spotting team mate mistakes, being diplomatic and getting along with team mates.

If a player passes this phase, he will achieve tier 1 status, associated with red color. This will make him eligible for stage 2. Stage 2 will require that enough players reach stage 1 first, therefore it will take some time until stage 2 begins. Once more players start reaching stage 1, stage 2 will be announced. There are plans to have 7 stages in total at the moment. All stages would mostly consist of lower stage players fighting it out among themselves and then some bonus activity too.

While 1st stage is open to basically anyone, advancing in it will be a difficult task for many.




During event cycle, the games will be observed and there will be occasional updates analyzing some games and breaking news on event related topics. Some updates will take form of videos on sites like Youtube.

All event participants are strongly advised to have fun during event and not worry too much about winning 1st place, after all if player has what it takes, it should come out naturally. This event cycle will be celebration of intelligence, creativity and the distance that the Warzone community has gone in the years.

There are no monetary rewards planned for these events. These games will serve as opportunity for player to have fun, learn new templates/skills, experience new settings and gain some recognition among Warzone community.

Players who complete stage 1, will be invited to unique discord chat designed for Warzone Ultimate Series players. Here any discussion will be welcome as long as it's civil, tier 1 players will also have easier ways of coordinating together for games/tournaments not related to Series.

Rules for the event games/tournaments:
1. Only 1 account per player.
2. Respect towards Warzone rules. (Severe rule violation will result in disqualification).
3. No account sharing.

In order to join, contact me privately or leave message below, as time goes by and I create tournaments, you'll be invited to them, I wish you best of luck!

This event will be in continuous cycle, the tournaments for reaching stage 1 will be created continuously.

Extended Rule Sets

<WUS> general rules:
1. It is strongly encouraged to commit as soon as possible and surrender once it's clear that you have lost. Normal turn time should be around ~24 hours, pushing committing to 4 days mark might be considered as stalling. All delays are reviewed manually once the game is finished. If it is decided that player was intentionally delaying game, he will receive warning followed by temporal suspension from future tournaments. If it is determined that player had 50-20% less income than opponent with no means to decrease the gap and player should have realised that, yet still decided to delay the game, the losing player will be considered staller and action will be taken.
2. Getting booted or surrendering on turn 0 in more than 3 games, will result in temporal suspension from participating in <WUS>.
3. If player is inactive for more than 30 days and hasn't informed about hid departure in advance, he will automatically be removed from participant list and will need to reapply to join. He would need to start from tier 0 tournaments.
4. If participant learns that his vacation will be longer than 10 days, and he won't be able to set 2nd vacation in time, he needs to inform <WUS> manager (currently Phakh Gokhn) about it as soon as possible. His games ended due to boot due to this, will not receive any rematches if they're part of tournament, other types of games will be reviewed case by case.
5. If another player can use participant's account, this information needs to be disclosed as soon as possible.
6. If participant manages to get booted while being suspended for violating Warzone rules, loses and boot count will be counted in.
7. Rematches of original games do not count if original game ended in a win or lose for participating player.
8. Multi-accounting is strongly discouraged. Any alternative accounts used need to be made publicly known by providing original account's name. If participant is an alt of an account which is participating in same game or tournament too, participant must inform me as soon as possible. If participant ends up fighting himself and information goes public, he will be temporary suspended from this phase.
9. Any rule can be changed at any time, new rule changes are informed in advance using this thread or by other means. Each phase/tournament has consistent rules during its full duration, new rules will only affect upcoming tournaments/games.

<WUS> tournament specific rules:
1. Using more than 3 vacations during 1 tournament, is discouraged. If participant needs more than 30 days vacation, he shouldn't join the tournament, if he already is in tournament, participant should immediately inform about his situation to series manager (currently Phakh Gokhn). Failure to do so might result in participant being considered a staller and getting suspended from next few tournaments.
2. Tournament needs at least 10 participants to start, Each tournament has 20 players limit by default and starts in 30 days if enough players don't join quickly enough. If tournament starts with less than 10 players, it will be considered a failed tournament and not a part of <WUS> series.
3. By joining tournament, each participant automatically confirms, that he checked the tournament rules and is intending to play in all 19 games of tournament.

<WUS> 10 games run (2nd phase) rules for participant:
1. Participant plays 10 games.
2. Participant has a right to decide how many games he wants to play at once, he must participate in at least 2 games at any given time, but if participant wants, he can request all 10 games to be made at once. Participant's games will be made by other players.
3. Each template is different, each game has unique settings. It will be guaranteed that the templates will be strategic or in other words there will be more than 1 way to win the game and counter strategies will be available.
4. Great effort will be made that participant's opponent would be highly skilled.
5. Each opponent will be a different player.
6. Each template will be picked by participant's opponent. If there are more than 10 available opponents, participant will be able to pick up to five of them, other will choose him manually.
7. Participant can refuse to play up to 3 games before they start, if they do start, participant might consider vote to end option (both players must agree then).
8. Participant needs to win 40% of his 10 games. First turn boots will require a different game to be made. All 10 games will be players. If 40% requirement is failed to meet, participant will need to unlock his ability to play in this phase through another regular <WUS> tournament.
9. Games will have 4 days boot time and respected vacations.
10. Participant can vote to end his game. This is discouraged practise and it's strongly recommended to make sure before the game is started that participant is willing to play in it. If game is voted to end, participant is free to play another game instead of this one with different player or template.

<WUS> 10 games run (2nd phase) rules for challenger:
1. Challenger can challenge as many different participants as he wants.
2. Challenger must propose a template which will be used for the game, if it gets rejected by participant, challenger can proceed challenging same player using different template.
3. Challenger can make a list of up to 5 different templates and give it to participant, participant can reject all templates if he has enough refusals left (currently participant can refuse up to 3 templates during his 10 games run) or he can pick one template as his option for the game versus challenger.

<WUS> rules for selecting template:
1. Boot time is 4 days, vacations are respected, surrender is automatic, game starts once all players join.
2. Transfer only, attack only, attack by percentage settings are recommended to be included, but you don't have to follow this point.
3. If settings include random move order, order priority cards are necessary to be included.
4. It's advised that there are no random card pieces awarded.
5. Game should be possible to finish (no 0 base income + chance to stay at 0 income).
6. Luck value should be lower than or equal to 16%, higher suggested luck settings might be reduced by me to 16%.
7. If game uses full distribution and no wastelands, it is advised to make more than ~3 picks available for both players depending on size of chosen map.
8. A map must offer diversity of viable bonuses. For example if map has normal bonuses, but one of them has 1000 bonus value, that bonus will be altered.
9. Chosen template must be strategic. <WUS> used definition of "strategic" is that map offers multiple strategies with each having either a viable counter or ability to nullify strong starts by splitting picks with opponent.
10. Random distribution is discouraged, if it is used, it should be made that regardless of random start, players could still have a fair game.
11. Only 1v1 templates are considered.
