Sunset of Tournaments
e introduced Tournaments back in 2019, a bold concept trying to tap into the competitive spirit of ambitious Tibians who want to show their mettle. Our efforts to bring their full potential to fruition included several changes based on feedback, observations and lessons learned over time. Alas, they did not unfold the way we had hoped and could not gain enough traction. While Tournaments attracted some players and found some fans, we did not manage to catch the interest of a larger part of the community.
After a long, thorough analysis of the data we gathered and the experiences we made, we have to conclude that our Tournament concept does not match well enough with Tibia and Tibians. Of course, there are still ideas, proposals and paths we have not yet explored with Tournaments. However, considering all aspects and our options, we have come to believe that further feasible adjustments would only scratch the surface. They could not fundamentally change the appeal of Tournaments towards consistently attracting a wider audience to significantly increase participation in the long run.
Therefore, with a heavy heart, we have decided to let go and bury the Tournament idea and hereby announce their sunset throughout the course of the year.
We want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all players who dedicated so much to compete in Tournaments, to strife for success and to help us with suggestions and honest feedback. Thank you for your support, your contributions to Tournaments and your enthusiasm! We also want to explain how the sunset will take place and what will happen with Tournament rewards afterwards:
Tournaments taught us a lot and we gained valuable insight from this adventurous and thrilling, albeit short journey. We would have liked to see Tournaments flourish, but nonetheless, the continuous development of Tibia will benefit from this experience and we will keep on working hard to bring you exciting and enjoyable content and features.
If you want to dive into the Tournament experience and earn yourself some Tournament Coins while you still can, here is your next chance: The sign-up for the Tibia Tournament HONOUR will start on Thursday, June 17!
