The leaderboard will be visible from the Tournament Status interface

Prizes will be awarded at the close of the tournament
Special thanks go to Titan for helping complete this highly-requested and anticipated feature! If this feature is successful, perhaps we can wrangle the demi-god to make even more progress on the vast EpicDuel feature wish-list!

The final Silver Secret package item will be delivered after today's update. This is a manual process so please allow about an hour to distribute them. This impressive new travel form utilizes both /boom and /fire commands.
Call for Tester Progress
Thank you everyone who applied to be an EpicDuel Tester. We received an astonishing amount of applications, but we were able to narrow the list down after rigorous review. The selected applicants will be contacted next week for a follow up to determine who will move on to the final interview. Thank you for your patience during this process! We appreciate all applications (Almost all. You know who you are.), as your interest in applying shows an exceptional dedication to the EpicDuel community.
Tournaments! (For Real This Time)
It's been over a year since Tournaments were "coming soon" to EpicDuel, and I'm happy to say that they're nearly ready to launch. Why the long wait? Titan and I were about halfway done with the feature last year, but his magic was needed on the AQ3D team. It happens! Finally, we were able to allocate dedicated time to finish the feature and deliver on a promise to EpicDuel players. Functionally, they will be similar to the Golden Yeti Tournament of yore, but much more robust to allow for placement ranges, achievements, prizes, and themes. Participation for the first Tournament will secured by purchasing a Ticket from the Tournament NPC (not yet in-game). The first tournament date will be announced soon and offer brand new prizes, achievements, and a PvP challenge not seen on Delta V in ages!
Call for Testers Continues
EpicDuel's call for testers is still underway. To date, we have received over 100 survey applications, and we're in the process of reviewing them to narrow the list down for follow-up interviews. If you haven't applied yet, it's not too late to apply!
EpicDuel 2021 Survey
Thank you all who were able to get to the end of this lengthy, but thorough, survey. The results have been reviewed and will help us prioritize feature and content development. We can't definitively promise anything, of course, but gaining a clear perspective of what you liked most of EpicDuel's history will help us craft a bright future for EpicDuel in 2021 and beyond.
