Celestial Tournament

Posted by Laura Genender on Mar 09, 2007  | Comments

Celestial Tournament - Guild Wars -

In preperation for automated tournaments, Guild Wars is hosting the Celestial Tournament, where 10 guild members (8 participants and 2 alternates) go head to head against other guilds to claim the title and the prize, including cape trims, potions, and (for the winning team) ATI Radeon X1950 XTX Video cards!

After talking with a number of guilds and reading discussions on various fan forums, we have changed the rules for the Guild Wars Celestial Tournament team rosters to allow up to ten guild members (eight participants and two alternates).

The Celestial Tournament is an effort to prepare guilds for the transition to automated tournaments, which will only allow eight members of a guild to participate for each specific event. Up to three tournaments will occur each day and, to be clear, eight different members of your guild can sign up and play in each event. Therefore, your guild is not limited to the same eight players per season, only per event. Since the Celestial Tournament take places over a two-month period instead of in a single multiple-hour period (the schedule for automated tournaments), we recognize that it could prove difficult for the same eight players to be available every round.

The number of prizes awarded per team is still limited to eight. After the tournament ends, tournament leaders have the responsibility to inform ArenaNet which eight members of their tournament rosters receive the prizes.
