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:
Each tournament will be voluntary to join, players can join as many tournaments as they want and ignore any tournament they dislike
- 50 games played
- 25 1v1 games completed
- 25% maximum last 100 games bootrate
- Base understanding of English
. 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.

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