NEW Tournament Rewards and DWC Points – Duelyst

NEW Tournament Rewards and DWC Pointsby Counterplay Games / October 21, 2016

Tournament Prizes

Duelysts, we would like to thank all of you who have participated in our many wonderful community tournaments over the last couple of months.

As you may or may not know, we recently rolled out Prestige Rewards that awarded emotes and forum titles whenever you placed at the top of certain events.

After receiving feedback in light of those changes, we have decided to adapt the reward system to better fit your needs.

We’re excited to tell you that community tournaments will now award Crate Keys. This applies to sanctioned tournaments too!

Here is how the average prize pool might look:

1st: Epic Key + Champions’ Ribbon

2nd: Rare Key

3rd and 4th Place: Common Key

5th to 8th: 3 Core Set Spirit Orbs

As a reminder, here’s what each crate prizes:

Common Crates unlock two random cosmetic items and one prismatic card.

Rare Crates unlock four random cosmetics and one prismatic card.

Epic Crates unlock six random cosmetics and two prismatic cards.

Sadly, this means tournament emotes will phase out, but we feel as though this new system rewards you what you actually want, and keeps the competitive scene fresh.

It is worth knowing that with this initiative, streams will also be giving away one Common Key now and three 2-Orb codes.

More Circuit Points!

There’s also a quality of life change coming to sanctioned community tournaments.

Backtracking to October 1st 2016, sanctioned tournaments will now award DWC Points based on its number of participants. The minimum participants’ cap has been lowered to eight, but tournaments with more participants will award more point to more players. In short:

More people, more Points!

To be clear, we consider participants players that play at least one match in a tournament.

This is how the new Points distribution is going to work according to tournament size:

As always, thank you for your feedback! We look forward to seeing you battle it out for the new Keys and DWC Points!

This is a pretty elegant way to introduce the free key earning. I like it. Might even do some tours now to maybe get cosmetics lol. Is there a casual scrub tour, so that i have a chance? :smiley:


I like this, gives a greater incentive for tournament play and provides a system to gain cosmetic keys. I’ll miss those special emotes though :cry:.


Just curious if you guys ever thought about a in game tournament tab. Like gauntlet you play say 500 gold to get into a 10 man tournament with random people. Maybe only have it on certain days like when gauntlet was introduced.


Ok, so does this mean points will be re-distributed for this month?

And are Tourney Emotes gonna be available on the Armory now that they will be out of the system?


Never heard about duelyst tournaments. How do they work? Where do I find them? What is required to participate?

Also, about those stream giveaways: what streams will do this?


Tournament discord channel look for the duelyst channel usually there’s a tournament of some kind on the weekends


The tournament site where most of the tournaments are organized (forgot the name) doesn’t work with Firefox browser - so I most probably will never enter a tounament… sadfully.


Am I reading this right? I think that if I was playing in a tournament I would rather get 5th to 8th than 1st.


Sorry for the (probably) obvious questions, but I’m a new player; although, I am interested in the tournament scene (I come from Hearthstone and I’ve played quite a few local tournaments).

  1. What is the tournament format? Conquest 4 decks 1 ban BO5?
  2. Are these tournament only online or there’s the possibility of local tournament (in Europe, specifically in Italy)?
  3. Is there any VOD of recent tournament? I couldn’t find any on YouTube, and I’m not that used to watch Twitch.
    By the way, I’m still pretty new and still learning, but when I’ll expand my deck pool I might be interested in playing some tournaments at a medium competitive level.


the invite expired, could you send another, please?

#12 there you go, this invite won’t expire.
