The FiveShards Weekly Series
Since January 2016, FiveShards hosts two weekly tournament series that each culminates in a final monthly tournament! We have designed one tournament schedule to be more attractive for North American players while we have aimed the other towards European players, but a player may play in either or both series. Each weekly tournament in the client is open to any player while the final monthly tournament will allow those that earn enough tickets to compete for a better prize pool. There is one final tournament for time zones.
Each of the weekly open tournaments will appear in client, under the tournament screen, with the name “FiveShards Weekly Series.” Each tournament is variable-length single elimination tournament. The finale happens within client and requires 5 FiveShards Tickets to enter. There are three to four open tournaments during the month and one invitational on Sunday.
Thanks to Hex Entertainment for making the tournament series happen in the client.

Starting in September, instead of points, players will earn tickets from the FSWS series. The currency, the FiveShards ticket, can only be used to enter into the Finale tournament at the end of the month you earned them. The coins you have will be wiped every month. You earn coins in game at the following rate:
1st-2nd –7 tickets
3rd-4th – 5 tickets
5th-8th – 3 tickets
9th-16th – 1 tickets
Can I play in both series?
Yes, of course!
Where is my platinum?
Fiveshards will send out all prizes as soon as feasible after the tournament concludes. This should be no later than 24 hours.
