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 series. Each weekly tournament in the client is open to any player while the final monthly tournament will invite the 16 top point earners for that month. There is a separate final for EU and NA, and both happen at the same time.

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 and GameForge for making the tournament series happen in the client.

You earn coins in game at the following rate:

1st-2nd –7 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.
