At the conclusion of our meeting with the Accursed Council, most intriguing knowledge was bestowed upon us. While enlightening, the trip left us with more questions than answers. Questions that would inevitably lead us on a Western voyage to seek the resolve we desired. It is clear to us that we must embark with urgency, for the very fate of the region rests on our crew.
The date is March 22nd, registration has been opened for this Western endeavor. Captains and crews have been summoned far and wide to fill the ranks of this fateful fleet. But alas, there is space enough only for the most skilled sailors, and as such we must determine their standings via a test of skill and aptitude, for which will take place on April 18th and 19th. To those that prove themselves, a route has been plotted by our cartographer to arrive at our final destination April 25th.
Our tournament process begins with qualifier matches where brackets of 4 teams will go head-to-head in a best of 3 format. The top 2 teams from each bracket will move on to the semi-finals with the same format structure. The results of these semi-final matches will bring the top team from each bracket into the Finals, where all 4 teams will compete for the Champion title across 5 rounds. Scoring is based on adding each round placement's assigned values, of which are First (8), Second (6), Third (4), and Fourth (2).
We’ve begun implementing systems that will allow our users to view and register for upcoming events directly through our website. Players will need to create a Sea of Champions account and notify their team Captain to use the event finder to register crew members for upcoming competitions. Members can view our rules and requirements to understand what is required to participate in our competitions. Follow our Twitter and join our Discord server to be alerted to when event registration opens up.
While we aim to unlock the true competitive potential of the player base, we also hope to inspire all skill types to participate in our events. Developing a healthy synergy between all skill levels is important to us and will cultivate a healthy environment for all to enjoy. To accomplish this we plan to deliver a variety of competition formats. To add value to this progressive competitive environment, we are constantly seeking avenues to enable us to deliver rewards to our contestants and audience.
Sea of Champions is a collaborative effort by a group of passionate and talented Sea of Thieves players, with professional backgrounds in visual effects, esports, and event management. After taking home the golden Xbox consoles from the Battle for Orlando, the team decided to build a platform that would allow the entire community to experience the high adrenaline thrills of an organised Arena environment.
With the goal of delivering unique, engaging interactions to contestants and audiences, Sea of Champions utilises proprietary systems to amplify the competitive experience. Not only do we strive to be the premier platform for you to enjoy your favourite swashbuckling naval combat, we also aim to be a driving force in shaping the future of the game in a positive and sustainable way.
