Post news Report RSS Tournament IX - The Tinkers' Tournament!

Throughout the entire month of September, the Tinkers are running a server-wide alliance tournament!

TOURNAMENT IX - THE TINKERS' TOURNAMENT!

The Tinkers have come up with some magnificent new clockwork creations that they wish to distribute to the finest commanders of these fair lands, and have chosen to run a tournament in order to find these individuals - people capable of leading troops both individually and as a group.

This is an alliance-based, king-of-the-hill tournament that will run throughout the month of September.

A secondary goal of this tournament is to test the Tournament API key in the background, and make sure that what it reports matches the data held in the backend system, as well as matches the expectations of those who wish for limited-data keys to run in parallel to full data keys for future player-run tournaments.

You DO NOT need to issue or share a Tournament API key (or any other API key) in order to participate in this tournament. However, if you would like to participate in helping us test the Tournament API key, please go to your API keys page and issue a tournament api key, and then participate in the tournament as usual. We'll pick it up from there.

To issue an API key, go to this page: Elgea.illyriad.co.uk and scroll down until you see the word "Tournament" and a 'Generate' button. Please, again, note that you do not have to do this to participate in this tournament - it's entirely optional, and will simply help us out.

I'd also be grateful if the XML-minded amongst the playerbase would take some time to issue a key and check that it's returning data in the expected format, and to let me know if not.

If you don't know what an API key is, then don't worry about it at all - and read on!

We wish you all the best of luck!
