Community Christmas Clash

Community Christmas Clash

The holiday season is fast upon us. Young wizards everywhere will soon be playing without much fuss. Your community has found some festive things to do. How about some PvP battles, made for two?

Join in the Christmas PvP Clash. You could win crowns in a flash! Make your way to the top of the ladder. Your pockets may become that much fatter! With zany PvP modes for you to explore, you’ll have to play by new rules… What might be in store? Join us on December 29th and 30th to have some fun. Unhappy souls, there will be none!

The Community sponsored Christmas Clash PvP Tournament is upon us. Sign up today and you may be picked as one of our 64 contestants to play in this clash. Here’s how the tournament works:

In each round, you will face off against one other competitor in a 1v1. Ideally, these should be two max level 110 wizards. These matches will be supervised by one of our referees, and the winner will move up the bracket, closer to our grand prize matches. HOWEVER. And this is where the fun starts. In each round (best of 64, best of 32, best of 16 etc), a new ruleset will be put in play. This means that your regular 1v1 strategies might not work. For example, you might have to only use death spells to kill your enemy, or you might have to get a minion to do all your work for you. Be prepared for anything! Who knows what we’re going to throw at you.

Now you might be interested in what prizes we’re offering. The rewards are great! For the top 8 players, you’ll gain a ton of prizes:

Grand Prize (1st Place):

  • 73,750 crowns ($105 worth!)
  • 1 Fog Staff Code
  • a Drawing of your wizard made by the Twitter Wizard101 community (Twizards) very own @GoddessofChibis

2nd Place

  • 13,750 crowns
  • 1 Polarian Explorer’s Bundle
  • 1 Fog Staff
  • A drawing of your wizard by the Twizard community very own @C9Cinnaroll

3rd and 4th Place

  • 1 Polarian Explorer’s Bundle
  • 1 Fog Staff Code
  • A drawing of your wizard

5th Place- 8th Place

  • 1,000 Crowns
  • 1 Polar Fox Code

9th-16th

  • 1 Viridian Scepter
  • 1 Hoard Pack or Jewel Pack of Choice

And there are more prizes to be handed out! All participants in the Christmas Clash who attend all their matches will be given a Dragonclaw Blade! There may be a few other prizes given away in the STREAMS.

Streams! This is our main focus for the tournament. Many matches will be streamed on Twitch and will be shoutcasted by select members of the community for your listening pleasure! Interested in some play by play commentary or our shoutcasters’ thoughts on potential strategies? Tune in to any of the matches being streamed. 

All of this could not be possible without the community support. Big thanks to @man0fbass (Slothman) and Shadowfishy (Dustin) for organizing the event, as well as these wonderful community members for their complete support:

We hope you can join us in celebrating the holidays in a truly wacky, magical way.

    Sounds like fun, already signed up, thanks and best of luck all!

  • Edward AnvilShard

    Hi there! I’m Bass, the other organizer of this tournament. I’ll be answering any questions you have on my Twitter page and here in the comments section. Ask away! :)

    • The Power

      Will we be able to re-ask what the rulesets are when you’re tell us so we can double or even triple check our decks to be sure we didn’t include something that’s against the rules or didn’t forget something that could be vital to how we have to duel based on the rules?

      • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

        You’re not allowed to go into your backpacks once the preparation time has expired or you’re immediately disqualified. If before that, yes. A tip is to write down the rules as they’re being told so you don’t forget them.

      • Edward AnvilShard

        Yup. We’ll be sending you the rulesets via email so you’ll be able to check back as many times as you like.

        • The Power

          Oh okay, awesome.

  • nobody

    ‘you might have to only use death spells to kill your enemy’ wait so what if you dont have any death spells? tc? what if you dont have any gold to get those because you just hatched? also if your opponent happens to be a death wizard he will have an unfair advantage. better reword it to say ‘main school spells’ to avoid confusion 😛

    • Edward AnvilShard

      That’s only an example of the crazy twists we’re putting on the matches. (We’re not actually going to use that one by the way :P)

      The rulesets we’ve developed have been thoroughly playtested for fairness. Don’t worry!

      • Billy Garvey

        Maybe I’ll watch. I’m anxious to see some of the restrictions. Maybe it would be fun to do some
        of these with my friends

  • ThatPromethean

    Hi, so what time is this and the page for participant signup isn’t working.. its showing a blank page.

    • ThatPromethean

      Currently this is what its showing.

      • Edward AnvilShard

        I fixed the site, sorry about that! D:

    • Edward AnvilShard

      The time is to be determined. We’ll pick the time that best fits our participants’ schedules. It will be happening on Tuesday, December 29th and Wednesday, December 30th!

      If you’re on a mobile device, the signup page may not work. Try again on a desktop computer.

      • Deathheart7

        i signed up, but i did not see a suggested time page. so where are you getting your “best fits our participants’ schedules” information? did i miss a page of us telling you, or will it be after, which now that i think about it seems more likely. Will we get an update on the emails? sry for all this but really dont wanna miss this lolz

        • Edward AnvilShard

          We will be selecting participants randomly. Lots of people are entering, so it’s the only fair way to do it.

          Once we have our participant list, we’ll contact you for times that you’re available.

          • Deathheart7

            aight, cool cool C:

  • Chris

    Signed up, Chris Green, Death, Level 110! 😉

    • The Balance Wizard Soloer

      where did you sign up?

  • Billy Garvey

    Wow, best prizes I’ve ever seen here. Too bad I’m not 110 and don’t plan on buying a membership, I’ll leave the sign up slot for someone who has a chance

  • flash33

    The example ruleset for Astral Assault sounds a bit up my alley. Since I’ve trained in each Astral School (including Moon) that kind of ruleset might mean I’d have a chance if I were to participate. Overall though very interesting. I do have a question though, how come 2nd-4th place participants don’t get drawings of their wizards but the 1st and 5th-8th place participants do?

    • Edward AnvilShard

      Unfortunately, we had to distribute prizes based on availability. One artist was willing to give only one drawing, another was willing to give four. There’s 4 3rd place prizes and 1 grand prize, so it fit naturally.

  • Fred Mythslinger

    I don’t think I want to participate (not a very good PvPer) but I really want to watch! What are the details on that?
    Good luck to those who enter!

    • Morgrim Shadowfist

      Streams will be online for you to watch. Similar to KI Live :)

      • Billy Garvey

        Posted after? On what channel? Thanks!

      • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

        Will Heather be there? I haven’t heard from her in such a long time. :(

  • Ethan Breeze

    I’d like to sign up, Ethan Deathhunter, Fire, level 110 😀

  • Matthew Hawktalon

    Is it alright if I enter with my level 100 wizard even though 110 is recommended?

    • Chris

      They said max level, so I doubt it.

      • Matthew Hawktalon

        They only said “ideally level 110”

        • Chris

          Well maybe you can join, or you can level up your wizard 10 times in about 5-7 hours … lol

    • Edward AnvilShard

      You need a level 110 wizard to enter. You have just under a month to make it to max though! You can do it! 😀

      • Matthew Hawktalon

        Okay :(

        • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

          You want to do it for the critical advantage? 😛

          • Matthew Hawktalon

            Ah but I’d have the spell disadvantage since I’m myth. It all balances out in a way.

  • Alexander

    Wish this could be for low
    Levels too :(

  • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

    The hype is real
    Time to ready the Insane Bolts

    • Ethan Breeze

      Plz no lol

    • Matthew Hawktalon

      I’m afraid

    • Chris

      Jeezus christ … Don’t do it!

    • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

      Enhanced graphics for all spells have taken place, if none of you have noticed. This is a perfect example, it was never that amazing pre-Polaris. How amazing. 😀

    • BoilingHotCoffee

      What are you waiting for??!?!?!?!

      DO IT!!!!!!!

      JUST

      DO IT!!!!!

    • http://pirate101vswizard101.webs.com/ Justin Covert

      I think storm should been from pvp because overpower to much talent of everything because they complain on everything!

    • Alex

      Please Dont!!!

    • April Stanford

      Definitely is very cool.I got in finally.

  • Sillylittlesushi

    Shadow-Enhanced spells, shrike, and shadow creatures are all banned. Yikes.

    My least favorite part about max level pvp was how easy you could bypass shields and spike damage, though, so I’m definitely going to enter.

    • Edward AnvilShard

      We decided to ban (most!) shadow magic for that reason: it makes for very narrow and uncreative strategies. We want to encourage players to explore alternate win conditions, so getting rid of shadow magic allows us to do that.

      • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

        I can’t use or create Discord/Skype. Can text through social media be a substitute?

  • The Man Of Sand

    i wanna be in! joshua sand level 110 balance

  • Avery

    I accidentally entered my lvl 38 and 40 (well, not accident, just wasn’t paying attention to rules) so can you take out Dakota sky and tanner ice out of tourney. Keep Scarlet StormCaller though please. And thank you for hosting this tourney. Amazing prizes 😀

    • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

      You can actually go back to the form and log in with the same Google Account that you filled the form with, and choose to edit the form. You can edit the form as many times as you need to until participants are selected.

      • Avery

        Thanks so much

    What would happen if some sort of incident happened and I won’t be able to attend the match?

    • Edward AnvilShard

      If you’re unable to attend the match, you need to let us know immediately so we can get a substitute.

      • Laurel Balanceblade

        Ok great. I am not very sure of 29…. but 100% 30th

  • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

    I can’t have, create or use Discord/Skype. D: Can’t we use texting in social media?

    • Edward AnvilShard

      Discord works in an internet browser, so you can definitely use it. In short, if you can run Wizard101, you can use Discord. :)

      • PvPg0d

        do we really have to use discord/skype? what if we dont want to?

        • Edward AnvilShard

          We’re requiring the top 8 to connect to Discord, but you don’t have to use a mic. Text chat only is fine.

      • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

        Do you mean texting by not having to use a mike?

        • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

          Yes, Discord has text channels which you can speak through. There are also voice channels available if you want to speak, but you don’t necessarily have to.

          • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

            Might be a pain creating one for a tournament only. XD Never seen or used it before. 😛

        • Edward AnvilShard

          That’s right!

  • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

    I don’t want this so seem like whining, but doesn’t banning Shadow put Storm at a large disadvantage and Balance in a considerable advantage? Balance still has Loremaster, Judge and many other tools that have nothing to do with Shadow magic.

    • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

      Not really tbh. Gaze bypasses shields and does bubble, Balance just lost that. Glowbugs did 3k and storm lost that but the rest of our spells do mass damage, along with the fact that we won’t have to deal with our health globes getting drained really fast by Shadow Enhanced spells of any sorts.

      • Sierra

        Sorry to be off topic, but how does gaze bypass shields exactly?

        • nobody

          its a doublt hit (kinda like hydra and chimera only those hit 2 times instead of 2). also it hits with both balance and a random type damage, making it very difficult to shield against (you bassically need 2 tower shields to effectively shield against it). so it doesnt bypass shields for 100% but it still gets past most shields extremely easely

          • Sierra

            So not really, thats what i thought :)

    • MatthewLegendCaster

      i’m personally fine with it. Storm doesn’t rely on shadow spells like some of the other schools do

    • Laurel Balanceblade

      Gaze is a very big loss in pvp for balance. The bubble that it comes with might not seem like much but it is and the double damage too. The new guy isn’t a loss, he just hits harder than ra :)

      • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

        On the bright side, every school lost an advantage with the shadow enhanced spells, so it’s pretty much even, even if some schools suffered a more severe loss than others.

  • Wolf FireBreath

    I am surprised by this awesome give away, I’d be more than happy to take a shot at this 😛

  • The Balance Wizard Soloer

    How do u join?

  • The Balance Wizard Soloer

    How and where do u sign up???

  • The Balance Wizard Soloer

    But how and where do you join?

    • The Balance Wizard Soloer

      NEVER MIND lol

  • Caleb

    This is the real deal, pretty cool. What are the twitch channel names that are gonna stream the event? I would be interested to watch this. And with day is this happening?

    • The Power

      December 29-30, 2015.

    • Edward AnvilShard

      The stream list is on the microsite’s FAQ page.

  • Caleb

    This is the really awesome, can you please please please make another one of these for varieties of lvls (grand, magus, or legend).

  • WeeLeong

    I don’t own a max level wizard, can you host other contests besides this?

    • http://www.duelist101.com/community/goldenheart/ Mindy GoldenHeart

      You choose to be matched players of your level range to PvP at a lower level is both sides have agreed to before the matches. Remember to inform the staff immediately if you do!

    • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

      This is a max level (110) wizard tournament only. This tournament is very large and a level had to be chosen to PvP at, and given that many players own a max level character, max level was chosen, so you will not be able to participate. If you do have a max level wizard, you can sign up many lower level wizards to PvP with if you’re opponent agrees to also PvP with a lower level instead of doing max vs max level wizards for the tournament.

  • The Power

    This is going to be fun, especially with the varying rules! Can’t wait! 😀

  • Kenzie Rain

    Good Luck to all that enter!!

  • Fully Automatic Necromancer

    If I sign up earlier, am I more likely to be chosen?

    • The Power

      Doubt it, they’re probably going to have a program randomly pick 64 names out of all the entries to make it as fair as possible. So your chances are based on how many people sign up.

      • Morgrim Shadowfist

        This is correct.

    • http://Duelist101.com/ Shadowblade

      Nope. After the application deadline, all participants are chosen randomly to make it fair for those who came across the Clash later.

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGDJ1XrFK1ou0MgykmHDuNA RoboTeddy

    I am Giving away 60k crowns for a fog staff code if anyone wins won and doesnt want it i will buy it right off your hands for 60k crowns.

    • Fully Automatic Necromancer

      That sounds suspicious.

      • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGDJ1XrFK1ou0MgykmHDuNA RoboTeddy

        Not really because i do everything while on skype and the crowns are on a noob account so all the person has to do is get on the account and gift them self

        • Fully Automatic Necromancer

          >60k crowns
          >On noob account
          SUSPICIOUSNESS INTENSIFIES

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGDJ1XrFK1ou0MgykmHDuNA RoboTeddy

            lol i’m basically putting crowns in a account for a fogstaff code. it doesnt get more simpler then that its not like i’m making you sign a form like getting hired at a new job its just that simple and im not the first person that gives away crowns like this

  • Paul

    How do I sign up?

  • Deathheart7

    if we dont get chosen, can we have a chance to be refeerees? it seems you have made it the other way around, where if you are chosen as referee you can’t compete. can it be the opposite?

    • Edward AnvilShard

      You can sign up for both, but if you get accepted as a ref then you can’t participate.

      • Deathheart7

        Yep i got that part. However i wanna be a participant first, priority wise. Is that possible?

  • Alex

    …Where do we sign up!? I wish to though I am not *that good at PvP!
    I am Alex Fireblade, Ice, currently lvl 89!!
    Also, if we have to quit because of in life events, are we allowed to do this?
    And at what times will the PvPing take place?

    Thanks so much!!!

    • Alex

      Oh wait, found it.
      What if we level up though?
      and what if we are able to get text chat later?
      it won’t let me sign up now…:(

      • Alex

        Wait, do we have to be level 110? O: Awww…okay.

    • Edward AnvilShard

      You have to have at least 1 max level to participate.
      If you are chosen and become unable to play, you need to let us know immediately.
      As long as you can *read* text chat during the event, you’re good.

  • thomasmb

    Aww, the only time I’m not available to play Wizard101 is between Christmas and the end of the year, to go see my family. Really wish I could have competed or been a referee. It’s pretty sad that you organize possibly your most interesting event at the only moment I can’t attend it.

  • tay kyles

          • Deathheart7

          • 2Fast2Legitness

          • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGDJ1XrFK1ou0MgykmHDuNA RoboTeddy

            No, sadly i was not the one the lucky people that were chosen but i might of won in the pick a fish contest that just ended today so i might get lucky there. ill keep you updaded if i won one or not because a lot of people have send me meseges about the 30k crowns so now its just a matter of who sends me a mesage first when the contest is over.

          • Deathheart7

            you got skype? 😀

        • Ryan Legend

          If i give you a fog staff code AND a dragonclaw blade code will i get 60k instead? lol

            I already have a fogstaff code Thanks! but you can still get the 30k for the dragonclaw blade 😛 sorry for the disappointment lol

          • Ryan Legend

      • Ryan Legend

        if i get it ill give it to you too for the crowns of course

  • angel irontail

    I hope I get in I try sing up for it

  • Logan LegendThief

    Is KingsIsle supplying all the prizes? If so, that’s actually a pretty good event.

    • The Power

      No, these are the prize providers:

      •Duelist101
      •Stars of the Spiral
      •man0fbass
      •CenMeta
      •GoddessOfChibis
      •Frostcaller
      •Vanessa Mythdust
      •C9Cinnaroll
      •Adventures of the Spiral
      •SeffersTM
      •CenMeta
      •Flint Drakeflame
      •DustinsRealm

      • Morgrim Shadowfist

        This is correct. It’s a community funded event.

      • Logan LegendThief

        aww. Sucks KingsIsle doesn’t care enough for their players.

        • The Power

          It doesn’t suck. I personally think it’s amazing that the community of the game has organized such a huge event rather than the actual staff of the game because they don’t even get paid for it! These are true Wizard101 fans. (:

          • Logan LegendThief

            It does suck.

            I agree with you that the community is amazing for coming together and organize a tremendous event for all players that are willing and able to show up.

            But it definitely sucks that KI isn’t funding this. It literally costs them $0.00 to fund it. They simply generate codes, give them to the winning players (who most likely have already spent a decent amount of money in order to get all their gear, pets, etc…) and everyone that attends the event has a blast. KI has a reputation boost and players get to bond with the company that provides their favorite game. You’d think after 6+ years of being a company, this would be common sense to them…. but nope.

          • http://www.duelist101.com/ Nick

            I think you misunderstand, honestly. KI gives prizes to fansites, so they are helping. They gave us some specifically for the PvP event.

    • angel irontail

      So jelly but in a good way good luck :p

  • Sierra

    Do you need to use the same wizard throughout the tournament, of do I just pick one of the three I entered?

  • angel irontail

    It’s been a week and no replay from you guys I really want be part of this if I can I would apricate it

    • Morgrim Shadowfist

      We only started accepting as of last week. We’re accepting participants in a staggered 16-16-16-16 format (25% of the participants at a time). There’s currently 32/64 people in right now.

      • angel irontail

        Oh OK sorry I am excited about it and just waiting for the email ty very much

  • Alex G

    sigh I didn’t make it in. There goes all the stuff I’ve been preparing in case if I did get in. Eh what can I say, my luck has never been good. Good luck to all the participants that were chosen!

    • Morgrim Shadowfist

      That’s not true. There’s still 32 more slots left :) You might get in.

      • Alex G

        I doubt it, but thanks for telling me, really appreciate it! :)

    • Sierra

      I am confused as to what I would need to prepare to be honest, any tips?

  • Sean dragonblade
