Tournaments is a feature that offers rare prizes based on how well you place in a point-based PvP leaderboard. Entering a tournament is not free; a ticket purchased for Varium is required each time. Tournaments generally last for a few days or weeks and feature a unique theme.
To enroll in a tournament, you must purchase a ticket using Varium through the Tournament Status menu. Although each tournament is hosted by a specific NPC, it does not make a difference which NPC you use to buy the ticket or access the tournament.
A list of all NPCs that currently have the Tournament Status and Rules services can be found here.
Tickets usually go on sale in advance. During this time, you can check the Tournament Status menu to see the time remaining before the tournament begins. Once the tournament starts, it will show the time remaining before it ends. You are still able to purchase a ticket up until the tournament ends, so it's never too late to join!
The tournament ticket is an Achievement that tracks your point progress once the tournament begins.
During the tournament, you earn points for every PvP battle you win. The point distribution is subject to change from tournament to tournament to create balance between the battle modes or to favor a particular battle mode over the others.

Ranking & Prizes
A player's final score determines their ranking. A leaderboard showing the players with the highest scores can be checked from the Tournament Status menu. The current format supports up to 50 places.
Ranked players receive a rare Achievement and prizes, usually announced in advance, based on their final rank. Tournament ranking tiers are as follows:
- Rank 1: Platinum Trophy
- Ranks 2-10: Gold Trophy
- Ranks 11-25: Silver Trophy
- Ranks 26-50: Bronze Trophy
- Ranks 50+: Participation Trophy (Unranked)
Higher tiers will earn all prizes from lower tiers, except the Achievements. In other words, Platinum tier will receive the Platinum rewards as well as all the rewards for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze tiers.
