The Cross Server Tournament Our newest, and certainly the largest, new addition to Dragon Blood is here! The Cross Server Tournament is a month long fight for supremacy! Before you do anything though, there is a lot of very important information you need to know about this event. Very Important Points: When you create or join a team, that is the team you will remain with for the entire 30 days of this event. Please carefully plan before joining a team. You will not be able to leave the team once you are in it. If you have created a team, once you accept a player to join your team, you will not be able to remove them from your team. During the Cross-Server allotted battle times, you should avoid buying or spending balens, since purchased and spent balens WON'T BE ACCOUNTED in the current events such as: Daily purchase of balens Total expenditure per server Temporary events related to account top up and balen expenditure, for example, Gold chest or Shoot Goal Event. Please also abstain from wedding receptions and gifts during the Cross Server battle times, since letters may not reach the addressee if they are in a cross-server! At the end of the 30-day “Season”, all teams will be disbanded and deleted to make way for the start of the next event. During the allotted battle times, including 0:00 - 06:00 server time, no changes can be made to your team, such as accepting members, changing team name, etc. Each player needs to be 100k BR minimum to participate in the event. Your first step will be to create a team or join a team. As you saw above, this is very important that you choose the team that you will remain with for the entire 30 day season this event will be live. There is no way to leave a team or remove members from your team until the event ends. Each team will consist of 3 members. Applying to a Team: You will be able to view the list of teams available, and apply to the one you want. The Team Leader will need to accept you into the team. Please be very sure about your team choice. Remember, the Season lasts the full 30 days of the event. Starting a Team: Creating a team will cost you 10 balens. You will not be able to quit a team during the 30 days of the event, once you create it. You will receive a notice when a player applies to your team. You will not be able to remove any team member once they join, so make sure they are the ones you want in your team. Overview: This event consists of two parts. The first 3 weeks consists of Cross Server Team Arena which is qualifying for the finals called Cross Server Competition. The finals will last 1 week and will start with the top 100 teams, gradually eliminating teams until only the top 4 teams are competing for the win. No balens are required for this event! The only balens used in event are 10 balens if you wish to create your own team. Cross Server Team Arena: Cross Server Team Arena runs for the first 3 weeks of the Season. The Team shares the team points won during this qualifying stage. Each team starts with 700 points and the first 1750 cannot be taken from your team if you lose a match. After 1750 points, your team will gain points for a match won, and will lose points for a match lost. These points will also help to determine how the game matches you up with other teams. Prior to your team reaching 1750 points, your team will be randomly matched. After you have reached and exceeded 1750 points, then your team will match according to team points. This phase includes all teams and all players that are in a team. Only Teams with a full roster of 3 team members can participate in the Team Arena. All 3 team members do not need to be online during the battles. The team can enter Arena Battles with one, two, or all three of the members present, BUT only the Team Leader can get a match or start the battle, so Leader position may need to transferred to another member if the Leader cannot be online for that day's battles. This is a team event however, and the lack of one or two team members will weaken the team against opponents. All team members should try to be online to assist the team. Team members that are online but AFK will automatically enter the event when Team Leader begins it. Team members that are offline will not join the event. Arena Battles will take place every day from 20:00 - 23:00 server time. For each day the team participates in the event, the team members will receive rewards. At the start of each day's events, the Team Leader must "Invite" the team members to participate in the Arena. This Invite button is not for inviting players to join your team. This is specifically to invite the team members to join in tonight's battle. Once the Invite button is clicked, a pop up in game will be sent to the other two team members asking if they want to join the Team in the Arena. The Team Member can either accept (and be taken immediately to the Arena to join the Team) or Cancel and they will remain in the main game. If the Team Member is online but does not respond to either Accept or Cancel (because they are AFK for example) then that Team Member will automatically be pulled in to Arena with the Team Leader. Offline Team Members will not join in the Arena. The Team Leader should wait at least 60 seconds after clicking Invite before entering the Arena to ensure the Team Members have time to join. If the Team Leader does not Invite the Team Members to participate in the Arena before Entering, then the Team Leader will battle solo. When entering the event during the allotted time, your team will be taken to the Arena for a match up with another team. The Team Leader can select the team member order for the battle. Each member of the team can choose one of their own Heroes to fight with them. This Hero will stand in the front of the player character similar to your Tank (Defense) Hero standing in front during regular game battles. Your team will wait as the Match up is done with other cross server teams entering the event at the same time. The "Match Up Automatically" can be selected, which automatically selects the next battle after the current battle is completed. If left unchecked, the game will wait until you request a new match. Your team points will qualify your team for Grades. Diamond Grade is the highest. The Team can only receive the team’s current grade title. The Finals: Cross Server Competition: Our first Cross Server Competition will begin Monday Jan 16th. Access opens at 21:55 server time. Qualifying Teams have 5 minutes to get entered and the battles begin at 22:00 server time!
