iRO RWC Scrimmage Cash Tournament 2011

During this year's USRC, what we heard from a lot of participants that they'd like to have more PVP tournaments. Something for fun, maybe more informal and have it more often than once a year. We announced a few months ago that we were planning a pre-RWC scrimmage (informal tourney) that would have cash prizes, and so here it is! The aim of this competition is to sharpen the skills of our RWC team before they leave for the big event in Korea in October. To that end, we are sweetening the pot by offering cash and ingame prizes for players participating and winning! Everyone will receive a participation prize and there will be special rewards for groups that can defeat our RWC team. The setup is very much like it was during USRC. There will be a live stream of the scrimmage with commentary, though the fight between our RWC team and the challengers will not be broadcast until after the RWC competition.

How to get started in-game:

  • For this tournament, you do not need to have special characters created for you or use your existing characters, you will set up your characters directly on Sakray. Once you have created a new character, you will be given the option to travel to a special USRC setup map.
    There you will be able to set your character levels and class. When you have leveled and transed your character to the class appropriate limit, the center NPC will offer to warp you to the USRC Izlude map, where you can equip gear and practice! Once you’re ready to practice, there is a NPC near the center of USRC Izlude that will warp you and your team to a practice room.
    We will be resetting all characters back to 1/1 Novices the day or so before the tournament, so please login and reset up and do NOT waste your zeny as you may not get a refill before the tournament.
