The Ruby Jubilee Tournament Announced

The Ruby Jubilee Tournament Announced - Illyriad -

The Illyriad team has sent word that the game has received a big batch of updates including the highly anticipated Ruby Jubilee Tournament. During the tournament, players face off against all others in a server-wide competition for specific areas of the map. Armies vie to hold on to new territory and alliances are formed to better grab squares. The site also has a nifty real-time data presentation of some amazing stats.

What is a tournament? Essentially it is a server-wide competition for specific areas of the map. A single square has been designated in each of the 37 major regions (the map is huge at 2001 x 2001 squares) and players must send armies to hold the squares. The alliances (a group of players) who hold the most squares for the longest will win an award. The competition lasts for an entire month, pitting millions of troops against each other. Some alliances wait to see what the others will do, some move in to a specific square right away and others will sit back and sell weapons and goods to those who need to fuel their armies. 
We're very proud of the tournaments. They are a great way to show off the ways the developers can alter the world and how players can change the landscape for themselves. For example, winning alliances get to place a statue on the in-world map!
