You’ve been waiting several weeks now, and it’s finally here: the DOFUS CUP is gonna spice up your evenings from March 11th until April 2nd! 
 

 


Are you ready to experience a Dantesque month of March? From March 11th until April 2nd, 2017 winning the DOFUS Cup will become the sole objective of hundreds of warriors; with the clatter of sword on steel, the roaring of the crowd and dizzying fights, don’t expect any peace and quiet in the World of Twelve!
 
A maximum of 1,500 teams comprised of 3 players per team will battle it out for 1 month to find the ultimate champions who will take home a cash jackpot of €3,000! Who will emerge victorious in the competition? Who are the three players who will go down in history and take home the DOFUS CUP? Could it be you?
 

How to take part:

 
To register for the tournament, you will need a team that includes 3 different players with a character of level 150 or higher. But be careful, the composition of your team must respect the following criteria:

 
  • It cannot contain more than one class from the list below: 
    • Osamodas
    • Sacrier
    • Xelor
    • Eniripsa
    • Feca
 
  • The following class pairings are forbidden:
    • Sadida/Osamodas
    • Masqueraider/Osamodas
    • Masqueraider/Xelor
    • Masqueraider/Sacrier
    • Ecaflip/Feca
    • Enutrof/Xelor
    • Enutrof/Sacrier
    • Enutrof/Eliotrope
    • Enutrof/Osamodas
 
  • Playing an Ouginak during the tournament will be forbidden.

Your level and your character’s equipment at registration are not definite: the tournament will be held on a special server where all characters will start on an equal footing with the same advantages:
 
  • Level 200
  • All level 6 spells
  • Basic characteristics of 100 in addition to 995 characteristic points to be assigned as you choose.
  • A bank containing nearly all of the equipment available above level 160.

So please register, even if you’re not an expert: you have the same chance of winning as everyone else!

 

Important Note

  • If you want to change the class of a character that is participating in the tournament, you have until 11:59 PM (Paris time) on Sunday, February 26, 2017. Registered characters who change their class after this date will be disqualified from the tournament.
  • Registered characters are also prohibited from transfering servers on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 upon pain of disqualification.

The tournament format

 
The qualification stages will be played based on the Swiss system: this is a system we’ve been using for many years now and has already proven its worth.

The final stages will be played in competitions of two match wins (B03*), except for the final, which will be played as a 3 match win (B05*). That’s right, to win first place in a tournament you have to work hard!

*BO3: In this format, a team must win two matches to be declared the winner. The results of a BO3 could be 2-0 or 2-1.
*BO5: In this format, a team must win three matches to be declared the winner. The results of a BO5 could be 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2.

During the final stages, the team composition restrictions will no longer apply. Each team can change its composition before each match in a draft stage. This stage will proceed according to the following schema:
 
  • A forbids a class
  • B forbids a class
  • A chooses a class
  • B chooses a class
  • B forbids a class
  • A forbids a class
  • B chooses a class
  • A chooses a class
  • A forbids a class
  • B forbids a class
  • A chooses a class
  • B chooses a class

When a class is forbidden, none of the two teams can choose it or forbid it again. When a class is chosen by the two teams, the other can no longer forbid it or choose it again.

The map where the combat will take place will be known prior to the draft stage, so it is possible to plan your team composition to suit the location and your attack strategy.
 
The full tournament rules will be provided before registration opens. Until then, tell all your friends and start preparing your teams!
