Structure of the tournament



The Eternal War tournament is divided in 8 different stages, and each stage has its specific rules:

1. Alliances - duration: 2 days - players create alliances.
- At the end of that stage all alliances get locked and all members can’t leave their alliance or join another.
- All attacks are forbidden during stage Alliances.
- All players who did not join any alliance before the end of the stage continue to have their spot on the map and have the right to play, however will not have the right to attack or to be attacked.
- The leader does not have the right to expel members from the alliance during the last 12 hours of the stage.
- Alliance members will not be allowed to leave their alliance in the last 12 hours of the stage.
- Players without alliance will not be able to join any during the last 12 hours of the stage.

2. Development - duration: 5 or 7 days - the goal of all players in this stage is to accumulate net points and thus increase the net worth of the alliance.
- Attacks between players are allowed, however alliances are not allowed to declare war to one another.
- According to the total count of created alliances in the realm, the stage will last 5 days in case there are at least 64 alliances, or 7 days in case there are less than 64 alliances created. Thereby, top 64 or top 32 alliances (depending on their total count) ranked by net points at the end of the development stage continue to compete in the General rankings and move on to the next stage.
- All alliances who fail to rank in the above mentioned order and respectively don’t move on to the Qualifications stage, continue to participate in the tournament placed at another special ranking list named The Eternal War rankings.

3. Qualifications - duration: 2 days or not taken place(depending on the count of created alliances)

General rankings: All 64 alliances who have successfully passed the Development stage get divided into 4 groups as follows:

- Team 1 in the rankings after the Development stage becomes the leader of group one
- Team 2 in the rankings after the Development stage becomes the leader of group two
- Team 3 in the rankings after the Development stage becomes the leader of group three
- Team 4 in the rankings after the Development stage becomes the leader of group four
- Team 5 in the rankings after the Development stage enters group one
- Team 6 in the rankings after the Development stage enters group two
- Team 7 in the rankings after the Development stage enters group three
- Team 8 in the rankings after the Development stage enters group four
And so on to team 64 who enters group four


- After the distribution of the team each alliance will face another alliance in the group in a system-generated war following the below given order:

- The first in the group against the fifth in the group
- The second in the group against the sixth in the group
- The third in the group against the seventh in the group
And so on to the twelfth in the group against the sixteenth in the group

- Wars last 2 days and follow the principle of the direct elimination.
- Unqualified alliances discontinue their participation in the General rankings and get transferred to the Eternal war rankings where they continue to compete with the rest of the unqualified or deranked alliances for additional special rewards.
- Although Glory points do not matter for the direct elimination where the unqualified alliance get transferred to the Eternal war rankings, the qualified alliances will have their Glory points marked and stored throughout the stages in order to dispose of Glory points from their participation in the General rankings in case they get transferred to the Eternal war rankings.
- Wars will be automatically declared in the beginning of the stage.
- In case none of the alliances shows activity and does not accumulate war points in the alliance war, the alliance with less net points wins.

The Eternal war rankings

All teams who did not qualify for the Qualifications stage or drop out of the General rankings during the tournament will compete in another special group named The Eternal war rankings.

- The ranking in this group will be defined by a new type of points named Glory points. The alliances will win Glory points as they fight against one another.
- The scoring becomes effective after the beginning of the Qualifications stage.
- The formula by which Glory points are calculated represents the net points of the fighting alliances’ members and the war points won in the concrete alliance war - the greater the war, the more Glory points will be received by the winner. If the net points of the winning alliance are much higher than the losing alliance’s net points, the Glory points the winner would gain would be less than in the case where it had won against an equal/stronger rival.
- The defeated alliance does not get Glory points.
- If two alliances don’t win even 1 war point during the war, they will not get Glory points.
- Each alliance is allowed to be at war with only one alliance at a time.
- Each alliance is allowed to declare only one war during a stage.
- Therefore, if an alliance gets declared a war, it will not be allowed to declare a war to another alliance.
- Wars can be declared up to 24 hours prior the end of the ongoing stage of the tournament. Wars last not more than 2 days (or 3 days in the final stage).
- If an alliance does not declare/get involved in a war with another alliance during the ongoing stage, it loses the opportunity to gain Glory points for that period.
