Anymore tournaments?

Prev1
Should I start spending this 110k ally points or are there going to be more tournaments in the future?

    I believe the last news was being reworked. I would save them until there is an official statement.
  • No, I do not believe there will be any more tourneys, at least not the same format.

    [sarcasm] Of course there will be more. There was a large out pour if resistance to them and they just kept coming. Now there has to be time for many to build back up that depleted ally point stash to be able to take 1st again. [/sarcasm]
  • I think the final straw for tournaments was the rampant cheating. I'm pretty sure that I saw somewhere that they wouldn't be back but that they would be replaced by a different type of event that would use ally points for refreshes.
  • the idea behind the tournament is great: you build up your B teams and strategically pick your fights with other teams to navigate to the top ranks

    the execution was pretty bad tho, it becomes too much of a grind after the 30th battle. also, it tremendously favours players who happen to be free at around 1700 local time

    yea, i would welcome the rework

    Pick your fights!?! I wish! Having the same options to choose out of 5 choices is not really a choice.

    Good riddance in my opinion. The brackets were broken if you weren't max level. Level 79s paired with level 71s for example, and level 79s have the added bonus of being able to level their abilities further due to the level restrictions on them for starters. The cheating certainly didn't help matters.

  • i mean it on a broader sense

    if you start climbing the ranks about 3 hours before end, you will see a lot of g8/g9 teams. then you can throw your b/c teams at them. Also, I run droids, empire, and rebel teams (all arena viable). so I have a decent response to different metas.

    of course this only applies if you have a lot of free time shortly before the end of tournament, thus my earlier comment.
  • I hope they come back in some firm I have close to 700k in all points ready for the next one
  • I hate tourneys but I love mod packs...... so either way I'm sad
  • I think they will return. The new achievement still comes with ap as a prize along with Vader shards. I can't see devs just throwing this away just yet.
  • I believe tournaments will return, they're currently working on anti-cheating mechanisms (to the best of my knowledge) - which is good news.
  • I hope the new type of event is good.

    Its like you're saying that tournaments give free characters to the whales that were most willing to pay for them in the first place, the heresy.

    I wonder at what conclusions would we arrive if we checked swgoh.gg.

    Next you're going to tell us some players have inside information...

    Yeah.. aliens!!!

    I hope they will.

    I actually liked tournaments. Always tried to start as late as possible (1-2hrs before end) and usually managed to end in top100. My highest achievement was 69th place ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) giggity
  • I miss the extra coins and gear from the tournaments rather than fighting for a couple of toon shards.
  • Nice how EA refunded the Barriss Zeta users and gave them crystals, yet all who lost out in the Jyn Erso Tournament (and others) get nothing but a kick in the you-know-where after facing broken Barriss teams.

    Add "the reward structure was terrible" and it's perfect

    Lol nice try dude, because that's everybody right now. It's going to be terrible if they ever return because everyone will have 1M+ AP saved up and make it a bloodbath.

    Yeah, it would be terrible. Hopefully tournaments are permanently done away with.
  • hopefully no more tournaments
  • Tournaments are the worst part about this game imo
  • Does anyone know how people were cheating, or was it just some glitch that occurred for some?

    Discussions of cheating are not allowed
  • Tournaments were the worst addition to this game, period. I honestly hope we never see them again, but of course, we will... Not bothering to save my ally points tho, ppl will have tens of millions saved by the time another tournament launches. Basically means the refresh cost will be insane or, at the very least, once again the first few tournaments will be an absolute shtshw. I pull too many great items from bronzium to worry about what ifs.
