War of Champions Participants
- Here is the list of qualifying players for War of Champions.
How Do I Participate?
To be eligible to participate in War of Champions you must have qualified for the event during the last Cross-Region War.
War of Champions will start on Friday, April 5th, starting at 4pm and ending on Sunday, April 7th at 10pm PST.
Shortly before the War of Champions begins, all eligible players (regardless of faction membership at the time) will see the War of Champions region appear in their list of regions visible in-game (Menu > Options > Regions).
At the same time, a Region Transfer key will be sent out to those players, and any pending region transfer cooldown in place for those players will be removed, meaning all players who qualified to compete in the War of Champions will be able to transfer into the region before the event starts.
Note: Faction members may want to organize themselves around their Faction leaders, who will be required to initiate the Faction Region Transfer, ensuring competing Factions are being set up properly on the War of Champions region.
In crafting the rewards for the War of Champions we focused on a few key priorities to make this event truly great:
- Rank Rewards Value – All players who participate in War of Champions, regardless of where they rank at the end of the event, will receive more Rank Rewards than the #1 Rank in the standard Cross Region War that is running on all other regions the same weekend.
- Unique Avatar for All Participants – We wanted every player in War of Champions to be able to walk away with something unique that shows they participated in the first-ever War of Champions. We’re excited about the exclusive Avatar characters obtainable in both Rank Rewards and in Milestone Rewards. See below for more details on the Avatar badge.
- New Fighter Rank Reward – We’re excited to announce that the top 3 ranks of War of Champions will receive a brand-new fighter, Lilly. More details on her below!

IMPORTANT NOTE: WALKER HORDES TOKENS & STASH
Players progress on their Walker Hordes Stash will not carry over when they move to the War of Champions region and it will not be preserved on their regular region. This being the case, we are providing up to four tokens for the Walker Hordes Stash as Milestone rewards for War of Champions. Once the event ends, players can take these Walker Hordes Tokens back to their regular region. Many more Walker Horde Tokens will be available in future Walker Hordes events.
Players who participate in War of Champions will be able to earn an all-new profile Avatar characters. These Avatar characters can be set as your profile avatar and will be seen in chat and all other places where the player Avatar is displayed.
There will be two types of avatar badges that players can earn:
- Rank Reward Avatar – The top three placing factions will receive exclusive avatar badges (Gold for 1st place, Silver for 2nd place, Bronze for 3rd place)
- Milestone Avatar – All players can earn the War of Champions avatar at the 50,000 Milestone Reward
Fighter Rank Reward – Lilly
In the inaugural War of Champions, the factions who rank in the top 3 will receive the all-new fighter, Lilly!
Note on the exclusivity of Lilly: Lilly will be available through Premier Recruits at a future date. The top three factions in War of Champions will have Lilly before other players can acquire her in Premier Recruits.
Once the Dust Settles
The War of Champion region will not allow for Outbound transfers until the War is over and rewards have been fully distributed to all participants. On Monday early morning 8AM PDT, and before any other event taking place in the game starts, players will receive another transfer key to allow them to leave the War of Champion region. (Reminder: no regular events will be run on this region after the War of Champions is over).
Beyond War of Champions
During the event, we will be running a regular Cross Region War (with some All Out War for newer regions) for all players who are not participating in the War of Champions.
