    Cool The FiveShards Weekly Series

    Starting January 9th, 2016, FiveShards will host two weekly tournament series that each culminates in a final monthly tournament! The first set of tournaments will occur from January until March! We have designed one tournament schedule to be more attractive for North American players while we have aimed the other towards European players, but a player may play in either series. Each weekly tournament in the client is open to any player while the final monthly tournament will invite the 16 top point earners for that month. There is a separate final for EU and NA, and both happen happen at the same time.

    Each of the weekly open tournaments will appear in client, under the tournament screen, with the name "FiveShards Weekly Series." Each tournament is swiss constructed with a top 8 We will host the monthly invitational through Battlefy; the monthly tournament will be single elimination. There are three open tournaments during the month and one invitational.

    Thanks to Hex Entertainment and the crew for making the tournament series happen in the client.

    The thing that upsets me about this is that I suddenly feel the urge to support these guys through their store.

    First of all great news and I realy want to stress that I appreciate it..

    I just do have some questions.

    In client tournament but hosted on battlefy !? What does that mean ?

    Is this sponsored by gameforge/hex entertainment or is it just you guys who came up with it and are you sponsoring the rewards ?

    What is the decision behind single elimination ? Seems like this is a good oportunity to overthink the system. Single elimination bo3 is just out of all possible systems the one with the most variance (aka luck) involved. I think we should debate over double elimination (probably will make a separate thread though).

    Overall...its great..thank you guys !

    I think because the Invitational is based on qualifying points and it allows only certain participants from entering, they'll have to do it through battlefly to restrict access. The weekly qualifiers will be done all in-client.

    Most likely they just got the deal that ESL had previously.

    "We will host the invitational weekly through Battlefy." Its not just the monthly final..

    You are missreading it is only the monthly finals.
