Outline of Event

Let’s cover how this will work on the day of the tournament. The tournament will take place at 9pm ET on October 17th, 2020 at HammerDeath Arena in Stormhaven. The easiest way to get there is to port to the Soul Shriven Wayshrine in Stormhaven and ride north. Start showing up ready to duel at 8:30pm ET. @Suivien or @SSmith will be grouping people to get official counts of all participants and make sure we are all in the same instance. Feel free to join the discord( voice chat and chill with your fellow contestants, judges, and spectators. The first duel will start at 9pm.
When it is your turn to duel, the judges will bring you in a separate voice channel. There you will screen share with the judges to confirm there are no champion points allotted. We’ll also double check your character page to make sure there are no world buffs. You can stop screen sharing after the checks, so no need to worry about any lag from that during the duel. Then you’ll do an ultimate dump on a judge. After that, you’ll be muted and the judges will leave you in the channel with your opponent. The judges will signal the duel can commence. Before every single duel, you will dump your ult. The best two out of three is the winner. In the instance of a draw (so when there is a stalemate after seven minutes), the judges will determine the winner. After your duels are complete, you will be brought back into the main voice channel.
We will be using the main arena. There are a few other side arenas so if you decide to duel while the main one is occurring, please use the side ones. At no point should anyone besides the duelers or judges be in the main arena during the event. Please be respectful of your fellow duelers and let’s all have a positive experience.
Grand Prize: 1 million gold
Second Place: 500k gold
Third Place: 250k gold
Honorary Acts of Glory: 100k gold
Prizes will increase! For every five participants that show up on dueling day, @SSmith will throw in another 100k gold. You can also increase the prize pool by donating. There is no entry fee involved in this tournament to encourage the community to come out and participate.
Frequently Asked Questions

Why isn’t this in Cyrodiil?
