The Hephaestus Challenge

Hey there GoIO. I wanted to get the ball rolling on the Hephaestus Challenge. What is the Hephaestus Challenge? Well let me tell you.

The Hephaestus Challenge is the new premiere league for Guns of Icarus Online. Combining community organization and in game support we will strive to deliver a competitive league for Guns of Icarus Online.

How will this league work?
  • 2v2 deathmatch
  • 8 weeks of Saturday matches with scheduled bye weeks
  • 2 elimination tournaments at the end, a silver and gold
  • A Silver Playoff with the opportunity to advance into the Golden Playoffs
  • Golden Playoff to define the champion
We have a set of Condensed Rules for easy viewing and understanding of the structure.

Please make sure to review the Full Rule Set as well if you want to participate.

If you have questions, thoughts, concerns and/or anything you wish to communicate to us send an email to HephaestusChallenge@gmail.com or send a message to one of the administrators: redria, Puppy Fur, Sammy B.T., Alistair MacBain or Grey T.

This is currently the next-to-final draft of the rules. Over the next week, please give us feedback on our current set-up. If you wish to speak with us real-time, contact us and we will set up a time to discuss your concerns.

On May 10th, a final post will be released beginning sign-ups. Sign ups will end on May 19th at 11:59PM Eastern (Monday). We will release the schedule on May 21st at 1PM Eastern (Wednesday). The league itself will have its first matches played on May 24th (Saturday).
