After four tournaments in 2017 King of the Sea returns for 2018 on January 21

 

Much has happened during the past months: the first season of clan battles is over, and the KotS throne has been left empty. The community awaits its new king, and contenders from across the ocean seek to take the title home. We are excited to be collaborating with the Warships Supremacy team to bring KotS to both NA and EU, and on February 4 the three top teams from each server will face each other to crown the king of kings.
 

 

We have adapted King of the Sea to the new times with the following changes:

 

  • Tier 10, restrictions of 1CV and 2 BBs
  • A new round robin group stage, playable in one day
  • A bigger prize pool, over 500.000 doubloons worth of prizes sponsored by Wargaming
  • More spaces, up to 64 teams can sign up to take their shot at the crown
  • Intercontinental, the top three teams from EU and NA will face each other
  • EU and international finals will be casted live from the WG-EU studio in Paris!

 

 

Teams:       King of the Sea is open to all teams. You must provide a lineup of at least nine players at registration

Sign-up is first-come first-serve after the seeded teams have confirmed. If you are a top-16 clan battles team and wish to participate please contact us before Jan 10

 

Map pool:  Trap, Warriors Path, Loop, Sea of Fortune, Atlantic, Shatter, Islands of Ice

 

Schedule:  Day 1 - Jan 21, 14.00 CET - Group Stage 

Day 2 - Jan 27, 14.00 CET Round of 32 and Round of 16

Day 3 - Jan 28, 14.00 CET - Quarterfinals and Semifinals

Day 4 - Feb 3, 16.00 CET - EU Finals and 3rd place match

Group Stage and Seeding Details

Spoiler

Each group will consist of four teams

Groups will be played as round robin, three best-of-three matches for each team

Group winners will play group seconds in the round-of-32

 

Seeding is in batches of eight, with the top eight teams from Clan Battles treated equally, and teams 9-16 equivalently

Each seeded team will head a group

Batch seeding ensure that each set of four groups (e.g. pool 1-4) has precisely two top eight and two 'second 8' teams

Should all seeds win their group top eight teams will not meet before the Quarterfinals

Thanks for organizing this, it's really nice to see the evolution of this tournament since its first clumsy steps back in the days all the way to an event, which is fully supported and sponsored by WG. So, on behalf of my team, I really wanted to forward our big thanks to you, organizers, referees, casters (Flamu <3) and additional staff as well as to Wargaming, Ltd. and its employees for helping to elevate this project on this current level, because an active competitive scene is a bread and butter of every successful online game.

 

A big shout out and respect also goes to our opponents, firstly OMNI in the regional stage and o7 in the final stage. You guys made us work for every single point and I think, every single round was an intense nail-biter till the end. Had it not been for a few individual mistakes, the results could be drastically different.

 

I wish all the other teams much success in the coming iterations of this and other series and let's hope, it's gonna be one hell of a show.

 

As far as feedback goes, we strongly believe, there's a place for this 9v9 META in exactly this shape and form, turning it into an elite and hyped event 2x or 3x times a year for a handful of few selected teams, which qualify, but from a raw player's experience, can't say, that sitting behind an island for 15 minutes just to experience some rush / action in the last 2 minutes of the game is a fun experience, so let's hope, the balance will be restored with Team Battles / Clan Battles remaining in the classical 7v7 format, while KOTS series sticks with 9v9, so everyone can kinda walk away happy.

 

Anyways, thanks again and godspeed!

 

Cheers,

Try without cvs next time if cv-change still is in progress? Would be possible to move around without being spotted at all times and perhaps not force the players to sit behind islands for the first 15'. Otoh, I guess the top teams might enjoy this meta..
