Circle Of Equals: PvP Tournament – 2016

3v3

Dear Sarnaut,

Sharpen your blades and wipe the dust from your spell-scrolls – we're bringing the fight to your very doorstep once again, bigger and better than before!

We're happy to announce our second "Circle of Equals" – a competition suited to its name – where you'll have the chance to compete with fellow PvP enthusiasts on even-footing, in a bid to win crystals, bragging rights, and a unique title.


To achieve this, we'll be creating a special tournament server dedicated solely to the "Circle of Equals" event, allowing players to create a maximum level character right off the bat. Furthermore, full sets of equipment, gems and various consumables will be openly available from NPC vendors, thus ensuring all created characters are completely equal.

Unlike the previous tournament, this one will now be international, meaning that representatives from both Russian and European servers will cross blades. Anyone who wishes to take part can do so – there are no exceptions.
