The Tyrant's Trial, EpicDuel's first tournament of 2021 has concluded. Congratulations to all the 50 finalists, including the grand prize winner, Daddy!

    Tournament Post Mortem
    Throughout this tournament we learned a few lessons and will make some changes for future tournaments. Botting, an issue in all online games, reared its ugly head here. This was expected, and we increased our regular patrols to identify and ban as many botters and dummy accounts as we could. We understand the temptation: logging off means missing out of duels which means fewer points. This is exacerbated by a longer tournament which can create dueling fatigue.

    To help reduce the temptation and pressure, subsequent tournaments will be shorter, likely a week or less in length. We may also need to adjust scoring to discourage botting in Juggernaut, if not removing it from the tournament scoring completely. Juggernaut has been in a weird place for awhile in which it's the mode most susceptible to botters, while also being a safe-haven for players who need to grind XP and credits before facing the high rank Legendary players. We don't want to remove an entire battle mode, but adjustments will need to be made to ensure a PvP tournament is actually PvP and not AI vs AI.

    Thanks to the flexibility of the Tournament system, we can introduce tournaments exclusively for single battle mode, like an all 2v2 tournament which could bring in new players to the mode who exclusively build for 1v1.

    May the Fourth
    Like last year on the 4th of May, EpicDuel staff Twitter accounts will be distributing codes for "Star Saber" weapons! You'll need to be quick if you want to collect them all. Not all of them will drop today so you'll need to keep an eye on Twitter if you want to collect them all!

    Edit: Tournament Update 7th May from Nightwraith.

    In appreciation for all those who supported The Tyrant's Trial Tournament, we've awarded everyone who purchased a ticket the new, rare Alydriah's Acolyte!

    If you have a ticket, but you don't see it, you may need to relog.
