Official rules are revealed and Finals will take place at the Eiffel Tower in January 2015
Today Ubisoft® announced Might & Magic Duel of Champions Road to Paris 2014 is kicking off tomorrow, May 1. Switching the format from last year’s Road to Paris, this year the qualifiers will take place entirely online through eight months of competition. From there, the top eight players will be flown to Paris for the Grand Finale, happening in the iconic Eiffel Tower.
Leveling the playing field
The new qualifying system has been tailored to allow players from around the world to enter Road to Paris exclusively through online competitions. Depending on their monthly performance and activity, players will have an equal opportunity to be seeded in the Bronze, Silver or Gold Cups. Each cup will claim a victor at the end of the month, and rewards of approximately £11,500* of in-game currency will be doled out to participants.
Players striving to compete in the Road to Paris Finals will have to ensure their placement in the Gold Cup through active game participation. Participating in the Gold Cup will allow players to gather Season Points and climb the Road to Paris leaderboard.
On December 21, the top eight players with the most Season Points will earn their ticket to the Grand Finale, a chance to win part of the £12,350** prize pool and most importantly, a shot at the World Champion title.
A world class eSports event
“Last year’s finals at Paris Games Week were a huge success and we wanted to make our 2014 competitive season bigger, more open and more connected than ever. To do so we have taken the competition entirely online and have created a dedicated website to cover the competition and provide personal dashboards to our players. In addition we will provide monthly live coverage of the Gold Cup finals on Twitch and community videos with tips, strategies and insights,”said Jean-Baptiste Pennes, Senior eSport Manager at Ubisoft.
“Our community drives us to continue pushing our game forward and improving it at every opportunity and we see this year’s Road to Paris competition as a way to level the playing field, meet our top players and ultimately give them the chance to be involved in this world-class eSports event. We are very excited to see top players go head to head through the qualifiers and see the best of the best at the Eiffel Tower in January,” said Samuel Jobin, Producer of Might & Magic Duel of Champions.
