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 old tournaments, hunters have to enter the tournament themselves as their captain cannot enter for the entire team. This is in preparation of future updates that will expand the allowed number of team members and also allow different members of your team to compete in different tournaments at the same 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. 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 party hunts if they are ready to hunt, and vice versa, only those in your Hunting Party will bring you along for a hunt. Each party 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. Trap checks still occur when you are in an active tournament, but they do not add to the multiplier nor count toward earning tournament points. As soon as the tournament is over, normal horn hunts resume as usual.

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.

Types of Tournaments


Tournament points are scored for catching mice specific to the tournament.


During an Endurance tournament the entire team shares a multiplier bar. The multiplier starts at 1x, and cannot exceed 10x or fall below 1x. When anyone in the team catches mouse, its tournament point value will be multiplied by your current team's multiplier.


Currently in development, boost tournaments are for passive hunters who don't sound their horns often. Hunters have a boost button to press when they log in, which would boost the multiplier to the maximum of 20. The multiplier is used up during trap checks and as the hunter hunts more frequently.

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 it completing 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 and select the tournament 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 ends. If a player leaves before the tournament ends no reward will be earned.

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. All tournament ties are calculated at the end of the tournament.
