Greetings, Adventurers!

Following the great interest shown by all of you during our Best-in-Class and Best-in-Trials Championships, we've decided to give our Adventurers more opportunities to show off their incredible skills!


Thus, we are hosting a seasonal 3v3 Tournament: the Tuvala Cup! To spice things up, we also have some special match formats in store later in the competition... ;)


Do you think you and two of your friends have what it takes to beat all other teams in your region?

Then get your character to level 61 and sign up with your squad!


Not only can you win Pearls, and in-game items, but all three Adventurers of the winning team will also receive a BRAND-NEW gaming laptop provided by Alienware!


Alienware Arena is also providing Free Game Passes & In-Game Rewards 

- Go to [Alienware Arena] to claim your Code!


Summer Season Tuvala Cup - Format


- All Participants will sign up individually and note down their team’s name and team captain’s name.

- Each team will consist of three Adventurers.

- All Adventurers will participate with their Season characters.

- Duplicate class combinations are not allowed, however since a majority of our Adventurers created a Corsair as their Season Character, she will be exempt from this rule. (Updated)

Best of 5 Sets

Ban Pick: Each team will select a single opposing Adventurer that cannot participate in each set, creating a 2v2 fight. In the following set, each team will ban pick again, and cannot ban an Adventurer that has already been banned before. Thus, each Adventurer will have participated in two sets and been banned for one set over the course of three sets. (The bans for all 3 sets will be done prior to the start of the first set and will be revealed to the opponents by the GMs.)
** Last Man Standing: Each team captain will choose 1 Adventurer of their team to participate in a 1v1 fight. The winner of the first fight will go up against the next Adventurer, chosen by the opposing team captain. This will continue until all Adventurers of one team have lost, resulting in the other team winning the set. (Once an Adventurer has lost a fight, they can no longer participate in the Set 4 fights.)
