|A Dragon Tournament is a 5-14 day event (the duration has varied), similar to, but separate from, the Dragon League, where Dragon Trainers have a team of their dragons fight opponents for Battle Points and a chance at various prizes. These prizes may include:|
|Dragons that participate in the Dragon Tournament gain Rank Points for each "kill", but do not gain any credit toward the completion of their current Dragon League, as these are 2 completely separate aspects of Dragons World.|
How it WorksEdit
The Dragon League and Dragon Tournament share Battle Energy (). Battle energy is recuperated by the player at a rate of 1 per hour. If a player has 5 or more accumulated, this recuperation halts until you have less than 5 available . If you have battle energy, you can fight opponents in the Dragon Tournament (or Dragon League, if you prefer).
One dragon from each side enters the arena at a time. The dragons then take turns attacking until one of the dragons is destroyed, at which time another dragon from that team is chosen to replace the defeated dragon in the arena. The battle ends when one side loses it's last dragon.
All dragons have a Physical Attack, which does damage without elemental modifiers, and at least one Elemental Attack which deals elemental damage that may be affected (either positively or negatively) by the target dragon's elemental makeup. The physical attack can be used repeatedly, while the elemental attacks have a cool-down of 1 or 2 turns after being used. For 10 Crystals, players can have their dragon perform a super attack, or heal itself, as well.
Battle Points are earned for winning each tournament battle, and are determined by the level of your opponent. A token amount of Battle Points are also earned for losing the battle. You gain no battle points for any Dragon League battles you may participate in during the duration of a Dragon Tournament, however these battles will still use .
On the opponent selection screen, should the player have at least 2 accumulated , the player may choose to execute a Power Attack against a selected opponent. During a Power Attack, all of the player's dragons gain a +50% damage bonus. Executing a Power Attack costs 2 rather than the usual 1 .
Rewards & PrizesEdit
Various Awards and Prizes are available to the player during a Dragon Tournament:
- Rewards are given for "Winning Streaks" of up to 20 victories in a row. These rewards may be earned multiple times during the course of a tournament, and are composed of a combination of Battle Energy (), Crystals (), and Bonus Battle Points ().
- Accumulated Battle Points are used to determine incremental rewards during the tournament. These rewards may consist of: Gold, Crystals, Food, Essences, Crafting Supplies, and the tournament exclusive Armor of Long-lived Jungles and Chaos Dragon. Every time a trainer reaches one of these Battle Point totals, the reward is received immediately.
- For a list of past Battle Point Rewards see: Tournament BP Rewards.
- The trainer's overall place in the tournament is also calculated and a final prize is given based upon this placement. This final prize may consist of Gold, Crystals, Crafting Supplies, and the tournament exclusive Unicorn Dragon and Armor of Ancient Forests. The ultimate Dragon Tournament prize is the tournament exclusive Manticore Dragon, which is only awarded to the top 15 finishers (most accumulated Battle Points) in the tournament.
