As our Champions celebrate the series of successful voyages and vast treasures thus far, an ominous presence fills the air around us. At the start of our journey it was but a lingering thought in the back of our minds, but has become a burden on our very souls. Could the legends be true? Are we all interconnected in a greater plot for the future of these lands and seas?
The date is June 27th; registrations have been opened for the upcoming European Galleon tournament. We're calling all crews that wish to step up to the plate for what shall be the most lucrative and influential challenge yet. These crews will have to secure their spot in the main event by competing in the Qualification rounds within the Arena on July 18th and 19th. The four crews proven worthy shall be called upon to compete on July 25th for the opportunity to claim vast riches.
Make haste, as spaces are limited!
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 7 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.
