SOE is offering an exciting new tournament format for all Legends of Norrath™ players that allows you to better your skills, climb in the rankings and earn free loot! Best of all, these new events are FREE to you!

Announcing the Legends of Norrath Monthly Sprints!

Monthly Sprints work like this:

  • Every weeknight at alternating times (listed below), a FREE four-round Legends of Norrath Sprint tournament will be held in the Tournaments Lobby.
  • Entrants in the tournament will receive Sprint points based on participation and number of wins.
  • Cumulative rankings will be posted after each event on the Sprint Leaderboard.
  • On the last weekday of the month, the player with the most Sprint points on the Sprint Leaderboard will win:
    • A "Choose Your Loot Card" good for a Legends of Norrath loot card from the current set.
    • A special Gold Sprint Winner Medal, displayed next to the winner's name in the LoN game lobbies.
    • A Legends of Norrath promo card. (A new promo card will be offered each month.)
  • Players with 100 or more Sprint points for the month will receive:
    • A Legends of Norrath promo card. 
    • A Silver Sprint Winner Medal.
  • Players with 40 to 99 Sprint points for the month will receive:
    • A Legends of Norrath promo card.
    • A Bronze Sprint Winner Medal.
  • On the first weekday of the next month, all Sprint points and Sprint rankings will be reset, but Medal winners will keep their Medals. If they win subsequent Medals of the same color, a number will appear inside that Medal. For example, a three-time gold winner will have a gold Medal with the number "3" inside.

Not only will you have the chance to win great loot, but you'll also get practice time for the weekend Legends of Norrath events, such as the Monthly Championship Qualifiers and the August $100,000 Championship at Gen Con!

The Sprint point schedule for nightly Sprint events looks like this:

  • Receive one (1) point for each round finished.
  • Receive two (2) additional points for each round won.
The least amount of Sprint points a player can receive for a completed tournament is four, and the maximum is 12.

The Monthly Sprint schedule is as follows: (provided no other events are in progress)

  • Mondays - 5:00 p.m. (PDT – U.S.A.)
  • Tuesdays - 6:30 p.m. (PDT – U.S.A.)
  • Wednesdays - 5:00 p.m. (PDT – U.S.A.)
  • Thursdays - 6:30 p.m. (PDT – U.S.A.)
  • Fridays - 5:00 p.m. (PDT – U.S.A.)

Please see the Legends of Norrath Events Calendar for details on this month's Sprints.

The format for nightly events will be four rounds of Swiss play, although we'll occasionally post special formats a couple of days in advance to keep players on their toes, competitively speaking!

The results of Sprint tournaments will have no impact on other tournament ratings and rankings.

The June 2008 Monthly Sprint promo card is Guardian of the Oathbreaker (4P3)!

International players may participate for Sprint points, Sprint rankings and Medals although they are not eligible to win Legends of Norrath cards.
