 Tournament News


I feel that I failed a little with Duelyst  Tournament Report because I created it with this type of stuff in mind. You are suppose to see it, read it, and then know what is going on. And it  feels a little like still people don’t know that tournaments are happening.  One of the biggest days for players who like Tournaments and Competitive play AND they are some tournaments that aren’t filled for community prizing. It doesn’t make any sense to me because on  Saturday April 28 most players will be playing and watching Duelyst. SO WHY NOT DO IT FOR PRIZES?

Let’s be real everyone is not going to make the end of all of these tournaments .You know what is going to happen then you are going to want to still play Duelyst and you going to say the ” Hey I wish could join that Tournament”. This is the biggest two week stretch of competitive duelyst in a long time. **Join these tournaments.**

2. All entrants must add “TacticalGmr” to their friends list in-game. This is to ensure that all matches will be viewable during and after the stream to have accurate game reports.

3. Players will engage in single elimination until the Final Four, at which point they will have to win BEST OUT OF 3 to move into the Finals.

Players can report their own score.


Trials of the Seventh Sanctum(PLAYERS (22)


Date & Time

Saturday, April 28th 2018

6:00 PM ADT


  • This tournament is open to all players (unranked, bronze, silver, gold, diamond and S rank).
  • Before each match, players will select one of their decks to play simultaneously.
  • At the end of each game, the winner reports their score and must continue to use the winning deck until losing a game with it.
  • A losing deck can no longer be used in the match.
  • Once a player eliminates their opponent’s decks, the match is over.

Basic Rules

  • You must choose two unique generals, each from a different faction.
  • All rounds are played in the Aestari format, as described below:
    • Whenever a game ends, the winning player has to keep using the General he or she has just won with.
    • Conversely, squads that are defeated during a game are eliminated and can no longer be used for the rest of the match.
    • Before starting a match players must inform their opponents their General lineup.
  • If your opponent is unavailable to play more than 10 minutes after the round you’re on started or forfeits without playing all of the games in the match, report to a tournament admin. Your opponent will have 5 minutes after that to start the match or will receive a disqualification.
  • You are not allowed to take time to watch your opponent’s replays in between games, and will be disqualified if caught doing so. Due to the difficulty of determining what a player is watching in the Duelyst client, viewing any replays between your matches in a round is grounds for immediate disqualification.
  • In the case of a tie, the game will be replayed, using the same generals.
  • You must play all your games in order to place in the top 8. Agreeing to not play a round and tie will result in disqualification.
  • Players should report their score on the Battlefy page.
  • All rounds will be timed. You have 50 minutes to find your opponent and finish your games. If games are not finished in the allotted time, the current game will be decided as a draw unless the players can agree on a winner, and the match will be scored as is. The elimination bracket will be under similar rulings, but the time will be extended to 70 minutes.
