2018 Halloween Event and Tournament Announced

By Excelsior - 13th October 2018 - 22:01 PM

Halloween is fast approaching. With ghosts rising from their graves and witches flying through the skies, this is a great time for a Rise of the Witch-king Halloween Event.

We're calling on all players to proceed to their computers during the Halloween period, on Friday, October 26th, for a full day of 2.02 FFGs. Yes, we will hold another 2.02 party! We invite you to the ROTWK Rise of the Witch-king 2.02 Community Discord Server to have a chat with the rest of the community (and we may have some spooky Halloween music for you as well!). As was included in the 2015 Halloween event, there will be an optional Halloween mini-mod included for you to download!

The server name is Rise of the Witch-king 2.02 Community".

But that's not all! We will also hold a Halloween tournament! Played on some special Halloween-themed maps, this 2v2 single elimination is different from most as the goal is to create as many balanced teams as possible, noobs play with pros and mediums with mediums! Teams will be assigned to be as balanced as possible. Our maps are a combination of reskins of popular favorites as well as some new maps such as Belenos' "Pass of Gallubia" or Veliamars "Forsaken Lands"!

The tournament will begin on Saturday, October 27th at 4 pm GMT. Take a look at this timezone converter if you're not sure what that is in your local time. Please allocate a few hours of your time for participation. The Tournament will continue on October 28th at the same time for the finals. These games will be streamed by Excelsior with Thrandier co-casting and by Deepy with Andy co-casting.
