We are accepting entries until the start of the tournament (08.10.2021 18:00 CEST).

We will stream the tournament on the official Twitch channel of Skylords Reborn.
The stream will start 17:30 CEST.

How can I participate?

SinceSign-Up-Button-PNG-Photos.png.2f75952eb16a7ef38e53448f9e976ec1.png we already have some experience from past tournaments hosted by Toggy, we will also host this tournament on Challonge.
You can register for the tournament there. You will also find the bracket on Challonge at the start of the tournament. Please use the name of your ingame account to speed up communication in finding your opponent

What are the rules?

The access to this tournament will be restricted to players only, who...
... are
not pvp gold rank or above
... have a
w/l ratio of below 60%
... feel like they are
rookies

Please note: this tournament is for our less experienced players, we will personally check the entries.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. No bug abuse, cheating or insulting other players. Penalties may vary from a warning to default loss.
     
  2. Disconnecting during a game results in a default loss. It is possible to have a remake, if both sides agree.
     
  3. Not showing up to your match after 15 minutes results in a default loss. The plan is to play a round of matches every ~30 mins.
     
  4. After your match, go to Challonge and insert the result. This is done by clicking on your match and selecting the winner/stats . The brackets will be updated automatically.
     
  5. Use your account name for the tournament. If your Challonge account differs from your Battleforge account name use the "Sign up with an alternate name" feature or change your name for the tournament in the settings. This will speed up finding your opponent. If you do not register for the tournament with your Battleforge name we can't find you for the prizes! 
     
  6.  You follow all restrictions.

No rules saying that previous top rookies can't participate, cool.
But I have just checked definition of a rookie and apparently I do not fit in it, so I am not sure I should take part.

So perhaps going to watch the official SR stream, we haven't had that one for a while, did we? ^^
Also 4 days in advance is a bit short, is there any particular reason for it? Are we celebrating something on 8th?

2. Just checked definition of rookie, it seem to be very strict, can't participate, understable, have a nice day.

Going to watch official SR Twitch, yey!

1. previous top rookies shouldnt feel like rookies haha, they can sign up but if we think they are too good they will be outsorted.

There is no special reason for it except of the fact, that I had technical difficulties the last few days so I couldn't announce it earlier and originally it was set on another date.

We are celebrating the return of the rookie tournament on the 8th!(its just a normal day)

Seems like a good chance to find opponents who suck at micromanagement as much as me.

Only thing that worries me is the time... and lag.

Where are you from? I have never experienced Lag in Skylords Reborn myself.

I'm considering (still) learning nothing about PvP and just participate if I can make the time free.... especially in the Rookie Tournement, there need to be some real Losers 😃

I am pretty sure you can just ask any pvp player and he will be able to give you tipps and or tricks.

Keep in mind, the free PVP decks are fully upgraded and give you a good card pool.


If you can not find anyone who wants to help you, just join Toggy's stream on Wednesday, the Fightclub is there to practice and improve!

I know, I know. But I'm not really ready to start into PvP and maybe its kinda fun if I just try on my own 😄
At least I watched some matches so I know I have no idea what to do 😄

Starting time is very unfortunate for me. 17:30-19:00 CEST is usually the only time in the day I cannot participate. Anyhow, good luck to all participants! I might be able to peek a little at the stream.

Since we have players from all over the world, timing can sometimes be tricky. 
Normally we run our tournaments on Saturday or Sunday at 15:00, so be sure to check those out if you are interested 🙂
