H1Z1: Fight for the Crown
Additional Tournament FAQ
Why do I have to get ranked on the Twin Galaxies H1Z1 solo leaderboard to qualify to play in the team tournament?
Twin Galaxies is an organization and platform dedicated to professional community verification and adjudication of independent video game achievement. It has developed structure and community-based procedures to verify video game performances of many types, including H1Z1.
Since H1Z1: King of the Kill is a new game with an enormous amount of players, and there are only 75 available player slots to fill, there is a natural challenge in fairly and objectively determining what players should be allowed to participate.
In order to make sure that the H1Z1: Fight for the Crown Tournament meets a professional player competition standard, we are utilizing Twin Galaxies’ leaderboard system to reach our collective goal to use publicly proven and systemically verified player achievement as the sole metric for qualifying – while also making sure that the measurement is taken the same exact way for all participants.
Twin Galaxies and its adjudicating community scrutinizes all submissions, looking for possible cheating, manipulation, etc. It does this in a transparent fashion so that all involved (as well as the public) can see.
We encourage all interested players to not only submit their performance to prove their skill, but to also look at and judge all the other incoming player performances that have been submitted. In this way, all participants in the tournament can be personally assured with their own eyes that the players that they are competing against are legitimate and verified.
Why don’t you just use the in-game KotK leaderboards to determine qualification?
While KotK does have internal leaderboards, which add depth and fun to the gaming experience, we could not reasonably use those internal game standings as the participant filter due to the fact that some of the results may be compromised by the use of cheat programs, teaming behaviors, etc.
I have just submitted my performance to Twin Galaxies, but it is taking time to get verified and accepted. What if it is not accepted in time before the cut off period?
Don’t worry. The most important thing is that you have submitted a legitimate performance according to the rules BEFORE the cut off date AND your submission (once accepted) will place you within the top 200 rankings.
The cut off period is only for the acceptance of new submissions, not for the adjudication of submissions that are already in the queue being reviewed.
After the cut off date, your tournament participation will not be blocked as long as you have a legitimate submission in process in the queue. However, if your submission ultimately gets rejected, or your submission is accepted but does not place you within the top 200 rankings, you will become ineligible to play.
How many submissions can I send in? I want to be sure that I don’t get rejected because of some technical issue with a particular submission.
You can place as many submissions into the system as you would like. However, all you need is one to be verified.
Any recommendations in general?
Again, we recommend that all players that are submitting also take the time to review all of the other incoming player’s submissions and help adjudicate and verify the legitimacy of those performances.
In doing so, there is a real opportunity for the H1Z1 competitive community move more toward acknowledged professional standard and expectation - which can elevate the competition and the mainstream viewpoint of KotK as the premium esport category that it deserves to be.
