Welcome to THUNDERDUNES, the first ever Guns of Icarus Online tournament!
As we hurtle towards launch in the last weeks of beta, it’s time for all you airship Captains, Gunners, and Engineers to take to the skies and battle it out for the right to name yourselves CHAMPIONS OF THE DUNES!
Date and time:
- Saturday, September 15, 2pm EST
- 8v8 (2 ships vs. 2 ships) Battle on the Dunes
- Collector’s Edition copies of the game and in-game costumes and accessories. Details and pictures below!
- Signup is open to all beta participants until noon EST on Wednesday, September 12. Register your team on the forums at: http://gunsoficarus.com/community/forum
- Double elimination with Bronze match
- Sign up as a full team of 8 (two ships), or a half-team of 4 (one ship). If you sign up as a single ship, you will be randomly paired with another ship for the duration of the tournament.
At signup, each ship must specify ship name and class and have a captain and at least 3 crew, with alternates strongly recommended. Ship class and captains are fixed, but ship loadout and crew class/loadout may be changed between rounds ONLY. In the event of a disconnect and restart, classes/loadouts may NOT be changed mid-match.
No-shows will be replaced with standbys if possible, but no team may play with more than one AI crewmember per ship.
- Each member of a winning team will receive:
1st: A Collector’s Edition copy of the game (includes Captain’s costume and soundtrack), PLUS your choice of an additional Captain’s, Gunner’s, or Engineer’s costume, AND a hat!
2nd: A Collector’s Edition copy, PLUS your choice of a Captain’s, Gunner’s, or Engineer’s costume OR a hat!
3rd: A Collector’s Edition copy!
The items in the Collector’s Edition will be giftable in case the winners already have a copy of the game or the CE extras. The hat and additional prize costumes are new (non-exclusive) items that have not been awarded in any previous contests or giveaways. Winners will receive their prizes as soon as the store is live and costumes are in the game.
