On July 16th, 2016, the second Krosmaster Arena World Championship will be held in Sevilla, Spain! Everything you need to know about the event can be found here.
 





 



Where? When?


 

The World Championship will be held at the Hotel NH Sevilla Plaza de Armas, in Sevilla (Spain). You can find information about the Hotel and its location by following this link.

The date is July 16th, 2016, from 10:00 AM to 8-9:00 PM. You will find the complete schedule further down. 

 

What are the rules?



 

The latest version of the Tournament Rules (version 2.4) will be applied. You can find it here.

Those rules include a certain number of changes compared to last year, including the price of GGs (who went from 10 to 12 kamas), and the new Tension roll rules from Krosmaster 2.0.

Please note that the Boss and Ban list have been updated with a few changes, and that characters from the Krosmaster Arena 2.0 set are banned for this tournament.

 

The championship will be played on this map:

 









Note that this map cannot be turned on the side, you will play it as you can see it here.

The tournament will proceed as follow:

 



  • Players will first play 4 Swiss rounds.

  • At the end of those rounds, the Top 8 players will enter a double elimination bracket.

  • Starting with the semi-finals (Top 4), players losing their match will go to the loser bracket and continue the tournament from there.

  • The final will be played between the winner bracket finalist and the loser bracket finalist.

Players will be able to change their teams between the Swiss rounds and the double-elimination brackets.

 

What‘s the schedule?


 

All time tables are given at Spanish time (GMT+2), and may vary slightly depending on player’s actions.

9:00 AM: Arrival of the players.

10:00 AM: Beginning of the Swiss rounds (four rounds in total).

2:00 PM: Lunch break.

3:00 PM: Quarter finals.

4:00 PM: Semi-finals (with loser brackets beginning here).

5:00 PM: Winner bracket final and loser bracket semi-finals.

French Champion and German 2nd cant get to the Worlds because of the travel costs. Look like it is something Ankama dont want to hear and tell the other players. Germans are only 4 because Sebastian is the substitute for me.

Well, obviously, it will have to pass through our tests and balancing process before getting released. And it's not a figurine designed only for the champion: it's a profile that will get added to a future release, so everyone will have access to it. wink

I'm told that it will be possible to buy Krosmaster Arena 2.0 (in Spanish) during the event. smile

Hello,

I have two questiones:
Will you be able to send prizes to us if necessary, since the germans can only take one backpack with us on the airplane?

Are we able to borrow figurines like it was possible last year? If so who is responsible for that?

We will be able to send the prizes to you, no problem about that.

As for lending you figurines, you tell us this a bit late... What would you need exactly? Send me an Ankabox message as soon as possible, and we'll see if we can do something.

Hello Dewit I can not send you a message, because of this new friend list rule. Can you please add me to your friend list such that I can write you.

Seria bastante interessante haver transmissão, mesmo que não fosse ao vivo(o que seria o ideal), mas que pudéssemos assistir depois smile

também seria legal informar quais as equipes escolhidas pelos jogadores em cada partida, daí poderíamos aprender mais sobre estratégia e etc. Uma tabela com resultado e estatísticas da partida também seria muito bom.

Vlw! e bom campeonato a todos!

Brazilians are always on top of the online leaderboards and even then Ankama does not take any action to have official championships here, this is a shame and a total disregard for their customer.

It looks like we will have a livestream available for the Championship, thanks to the help of local groups of players! I will wrap up all the info and post it as soon as I can.

I will also be there to provide you live news about the Championship. I will get everything I can: team compositions, player's rankings, current match in play, etc...

I will make a specific topic to follow the event.
