A corruption has emerged from the dark depths of its confinement. A darkness locked away for one thousand years is upon us, and the need for Champions has never been greater. Our shipwright has meticulously crafted a set of sails to serve as a shield against this threat. The Champions Mark, now available to all those who are victorious within our trials.
Registration is now open for a new wave of contenders to prove themselves. Limited to the region of Europe, this particular competition will consist of teams of two utilizing our Sloop vessels. Those entering will expect to compete in the Qualifiers on September 19th in a best of 3 round scenario. Those triumphant souls will then compete in the Semi Finals on September 20th. The Final showdown will take place on September 26th at 12PM EST/5PM BST over on twitch.tv/statuseffect.
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.
