Ground Rules:

Note: Do not forget to activate PVP mode (Turn off safe mode) and uncheck the relevant “PVP only” boxes. You can also change the “Buff Only” settings to suit your play style.

Players will be traded an entrance ticket prior to their match. If a character cannot receive the entrance ticket via trade, that character will not be allowed to enter the arena. Team leader is responsible for the distribution of team members’ tickets.

Players will enter their side of the arena by speaking with the Wolf Cub NPC.

Once all players have entered the arena, the GM will activate the buff timer. Players will have 120 seconds to buff up.

After the 120 second buff period, the barriers will go down, and the match will begin.

Once the match begins, both teams will have 300 seconds (5 minutes) to eliminate the opposing team. If both teams still have surviving members after 300 seconds (5 minutes), the “Time Over” signal will be given.

Players can’t use resurrection skills and Revival Scrolls in the arena. A team will be given 1 foul for every Revival Scroll discovered on a team member upon entering the Arena. If this fact is discovered immediately after the team of the offending character wins a round, the results of that round will be declared null and void.

Once the Time Over signal is given, players must immediately take their hands off the mouse and keyboard, except to perform the actions in the next item.

Players who have an opponent targeted when the Time Over signal is given must cancel their action and move away from any opponents before taking their hands off the mouse and keyboard (Press the Esc button three times). A player has 5 seconds to comply with this rule. Failure to comply will result in one (1) foul assigned per offending team member.


The tournament will be hosted on the PHOENIX Server.

All matches will be 5 VS 5 team elimination. Please see the Point System below for match scoring.

The match duration is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

Players have 2 minutes to resupply between matches.

Match-ups will be determined on the spot and will be shuffled through challonge.com

Point System:

A point is scored if a team wipes out the opposing team within the time limit.

A point is scored if a team has more surviving members after the time is up.

The first team to receive 2 points wins, and advances to the next round.

If both teams have the same number of surviving members after time is up, the match will end in a tie.

In the case of a tie, both teams will receive 1 point, with the following exception:

If a tie will result in both teams receiving 2 points, both teams will instead fight a Sudden Death match.

Sudden Death Match:

The Sudden Death match duration is 120 seconds (2 minutes).

The first team to kill a member of the opposing team wins the Sudden Death match and will receive 1 point.

If neither team manages to kill a member of the opposing team within 120 seconds (2 minutes), the result of the match will be decided with a coin toss.

Additional Rules:

  • Fouls are accumulated throughout the Phoenix Council Wars tournament, and will not be reset. Fouls earned during the Dynasty Wars leg will be carried on to the Final 8 and the Grand Finals. If the members of a team commit a total of 3 fouls over the course of the tournament, the team will automatically be disqualified from the tournament.
  • Teams who do not have an opponent will advance automatically.
  • If issues arise that are not covered by the existing rules, the Tournament Judge or PW GM Team will decide on that matter. GMs decision is always final.
  • Only if there are 3 or more players have been disconnected will the match be stopped. The match will then be continued after the connection stabilizes with the remaining time and DPs from the time the match was stopped.

If a clan is already in the list of top winners of a certain category, that clan is no longer eligible to win in other categories.
