In addition, except for the main prizes (1, 2 and 3), we decided to add two wonderful Game Events. The first game event, we will open on the stage of our  tournament announcement, but the second will be for you a secret until February 28th. About this event we describe only on opening ceremony of the tournament. This will be our surprise for you.

First game Event: Fraction War.

All players are randomly divided into two factions: “Red” and “Green” by color of mahjong dragons. Your task – to become a leader of your faction, earning faction points – 1st place: 3 points, 2nd place: 1 point for 3rd place: 0 points, 4 place – 4 points. As you can see, to be a leader,  important to play very effectively and do not take 4th place. We assume that the players will be the leaders of factions of the top 8 of the standings. Each faction leader will be awarded a commemorative gift for their dedication to his dragon.

Unfortunately, our activities are not funded by anyone, so we are not ready to bestow all members of the winning faction. But you can always get out of this situation – the losing faction can always give beer to winners, because they deserve it. 🙂

Game events in no way affect the final results of the tournament, on the way to scoring for each game session and do not make any changes to the scoring formula, they are only a pleasant addition to the tournament.
