The Guild Wars Factions Championship (GWFC) is a series of tournament events sponsored by ArenaNet. Guilds from all territories participate by playing GvG-Battles followed by special seasonal play-off events and the World Championship Finals.

Format

There will be three qualifying seasons:

  • March 7, 2006 – April 3, 2006
  • April 18, 2006 – May 15, 2006
  • May 30, 2006 – June 26, 2006

Each season begins with a reset of the guild ladder. At the end of each qualifying season, the top 16 highest ranking guilds worldwide will be invited to the Seasonal Play-Offs. These teams will compete in a single-elimination tournament. Guilds will earn GWFC Points based upon their final position in each seasonal play-off. Additionally, the 1st and 2nd highest ranking guilds in each territory will receive bonus points.

After the last qualifying season, the top five guilds with the highest GWFC Point total (with a maximum of two guilds from any specific territory) will have earned an invitation to compete in the Guild Wars Factions World Championship Finals. In the case of a tie, single elimination tie breaker matches will determine the five guilds that will earn an invitation.

The 6th and final invitation to the World Championship Finals will be awarded to the winner of the GWFC Open tournament event. To this end, on July 7, 2006, the guild ladder will reset again. For the following 72 hours all guilds may compete in randomly paired single-game matches to increase their rank. On July 10, 2006, the top ranking eligible guild which has not yet qualified to the World Championship Finals will earn the remaining 6th invitation.

The World Championship Finals will take place from August 24 to August 27 during the GC Games Convention 2006 in Leipzig, Germany.

GWFC Points

Each Seasonal Play-Off will offer GWFC Points to the top 16 guilds of the guild ladder. The amount of points gained follows the chart below:

First Seasonal Play-Off 10 8 6 4 2
Second Seasonal Play-Off 15 12 9 6 3
Third Seasonal Play-Off 20 16 12 8 4

The two highest ranked guilds on the guild ladder from each territory will earn the additional number of GWFC points shown below:

Territory Rank 1st 2nd
First Seasonal Play-Off 4 2

Third Seasonal Play-Off 8 4
