'''Tournaments''' are [[mice]]-catching competitions. In order to join a tournament, hunters have to join or create a [[Hunting Team]], then click ''Tournaments'' option from the ''Teams'' drop-down menu on the game navigation. This will display a list of active and upcoming tournaments, allowing hunters to browse tournaments and view information about a specific tournament, including the number of teams involved, how the scoring works, and within which locations the tournament takes place. A ''Join'' button located at the right of each row of tournament. Do note that unlike the [[Tournament/Archive|old tournaments]], hunters have to enter the tournament themselves as their captain cannot enter for the entire team.  A hunter can register for up to three upcoming non-overlapping tournaments at a time.

Upon joining a tournament, a heads-up display ([[HUD]]) will appear near the top of the game informing hunters how long until the tournament starts, how many fellow team members have joined the same tournament, how many active team members are in the same tournament, and some controls to invite teammates and friends to compete together. A small circular icon on the right of the HUD would have a blue question mark within when the hunter is at a location that can earn tournament points, otherwise it would be a yellow exclamation mark.

While in an active tournament, sounding the [[Hunter's Horn|Tourney Horn]] will send teammates in the same tournament on hunts if they are ready to hunt, and vice versa, only those in your [[Hunting Team]] will bring you along for a hunt. Each team member could be in a different [[location]] but as long as they are ready to hunt, they will be brought along on a hunt when a teammate sounds the horn. Team members do not have to be friends with each other to be brought along on hunts during tournaments.  '''[[Trap check]]s still occur during an active tournament, but they do not count toward earning tournament points nor add to the multiplier.'''  As soon as the tournament is over, normal horn hunts resume as usual.

Team members can see the [[Team Journal]], which records the last four private events of each team member, whether or not the team is currently involved in a tournament.  This allows a team to track if all hunters were brought along for a hunt, even if they missed a mouse, and also see when a team member has received a [[King's Reward]].

This article is about the competitive gameplay feature. For other uses, see Tournament (disambiguation).

Tournaments are mice-catching competitions. In order to join a tournament, hunters have to join or create a Hunting Team, then click Tournaments option from the Teams drop-down menu on the game navigation. This will display a list of active and upcoming tournaments, allowing hunters to browse tournaments and view information about a specific tournament, including the number of teams involved, how the scoring works, and within which locations the tournament takes place. A Join button is located at the right of each row of tournaments. Do note that unlike the old tournaments, hunters have to enter the tournament themselves as their captain cannot enter for the entire team. A hunter can register for up to three upcoming non-overlapping tournaments at a time.

Upon joining a tournament, a heads-up display (HUD) will appear near the top of the game informing hunters how long until the tournament starts, how many fellow team members have joined the same tournament, how many active team members are in the same tournament, and some controls to invite teammates and friends to compete together. A small circular icon on the right of the HUD will show a blue question mark when the hunter is at a location that can earn tournament points. If the hunter cannot earn tournament points at the current location, the small circular icon will show a yellow exclamation mark instead.

Upon the tournament starting, the HUD will change to indicate the amount of time remaining, along with your team's current points and rank. Should hunters need a reminder of the scoring rules, they can click the name of the tournament on the HUD to view the tournament details.

While in an active tournament, sounding the Tourney Horn will send teammates in the same tournament on hunts if they are ready to hunt, and vice versa, only those in your Hunting Team will bring you along for a hunt. Each team member could be in a different location but as long as they are ready to hunt, they will be brought along on a hunt when a teammate sounds the horn. Team members do not have to be friends with each other to be brought along on hunts during tournaments. Trap checks still occur during an active tournament, but they do not count toward earning tournament points nor do they add to the multiplier. As soon as the tournament is over, normal horn hunts resume as usual.

Team members can see the Team Journal, which records the last four private events of each team member, whether or not the team is currently involved in a tournament. This allows a team to track if all hunters were brought along for a hunt, even if they missed a mouse, and also see when a team member has received a King's Reward.

A hunting team is required to participate in Train Rides at the Gnawnian Express Station; a player cannot participate in a tournament and a train ride simultaneously.

General Rules

  • Individual members can only be in one tournament at a time, although teams can participate in different tournaments at the same time.
  • Hunters cannot join a tournament that has started.
  • Only a certain amount of team members can join a tournament.
  • Hunters who leave a tournament early cannot claim prizes.
  • Spend Tournament Tokens at the Tournament Shop in Valour.
  • Tournaments with less than 6 teams will automatically cancel.

Duration

Depending on the tournament, its duration ranges from 3 hours to 3 days (72 hours). The duration affects the number of Tournament Tokens rewarded if the team is in the top 50% and above. See the Rewards section for more information.

Barring a few rare exceptions, tournaments usually start and end on the hour in GMT/UTC time.

Number of members

The maximum number of players per team usually ranges from 3 to 5 players, with 4-player tournaments being the most common.

The exceptions are Valentine's Solo and Valentine's Couples, which are 1 and 2-player tournaments respectively, available during Valentine's Day event. On rare occasions, 8-player, 10-player and 12-player tournaments were also available.

Rewards

By competing in tournaments, hunters can earn collectible trophies and badges, as well as tournament tokens that can be spent at the Tournament Hall. All hunters participating in a tournament, upon its completion, should receive a notification informing them of their team position as well as rewards. Alternatively, hunters can also claim the prize by clicking on the Team History tab on the team profile page which would indicate the tournament(s) for which they have yet to claim the prize.

All reward items are only given to hunters who took part in the tournament and stayed until it ended. If a hunter leaves before the tournament ends, no reward can be earned. In addition, the hunter must remain in their same team when claiming their reward. If you leave your tournament team before claiming your reward (or the team is disbanded by the captain), the reward cannot be claimed.

The number of teams that entered the tournament, the length of the tournament, and your team's rank upon the tournament's completion determine what reward you receive. If fewer than 6 teams enter a tournament, it will automatically be cancelled, so that all tournaments are guaranteed to award at least three trophies while still only rewarding top 50% finishers. All tournament ties are calculated at the end of the tournament; if two teams tie for first, then both teams are awarded a Gold Trophy, and the next team is awarded Bronze.
