Well, hello everyone, it's your friendly neighborhood esport writer with an announcement. I am organizing an all Empire Wars tournament with what I think is a never before seen format!
The Warchief Club seeks to find the hidden gems in the vast deserts of Empire Wars' seemingly shifting strategy landscape. The entirety of the Red Bull Wololo series has shown us that there is a lot left to explore about the game mode. So why not spend a month with the game mode?
32 signed up players will compete in a free pick Empire Wars ladder (called the Club stage), they will be looking to reach the top of the rankings for a whole month, having to play more than 8 matches. At the end of the month, the 16 best players will be seeded in a Single-elimination bracket for the title of Warchief and potentially some treasure.
Any player that has participated in any Red Bull Wololo Qualifier (and reached the top 16 or higher) will be given sign up priority. If there are vacant spots by the end of sign-ups, the remaining players will be chosen from the Signup Thread in chronological order.
- Sign-ups close on February 20th.
- Club Stage kicks off on March 1st and runs until April 2nd.
- Round of 16 will be played on the 3rd of April, starting at 11 GMT.
- Quarterfinals will be played on the 4th of April, starting at 11 GMT.
- Semifinals will be played on the 10th of April, starting at 11 GMT.
- Finals will be played on the 11th of April, starting at 11 GMT.
