Format

HoN Tour is comprised of a Qualifier, 10 Event Cycles, and a live Grand Finals which will consist of the top teams from each regional HoN Tour (NA/EU/AUS, SEA, CIS and Latin America). Participants compete in one of four divisions of play: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond.

Qualifier:
The Qualifier is an open tournament with max 1024 registrations. The Qualifier will be Single Elimination, where top 104 teams will qualify for Diamond (8), Gold (32) and Silver (64) Divisions, while the rest of 8 Diamonds spot will be filled with invites.

Event Cycles:
Each Event Cycle lasts for 9 days from Saturday to the next Sunday. During each Event Cycle, competitors will compete simultaneously in one of the four divisions. Teams will be promoted and relegated into new divisions based on their placement at the end of each Event Cycle.

Live Grand Finals:
Each Event Cycle awards HoN Tour Points in addition to cash and Gold Coins pizes. Points which accumulate over the 10 Event Cycles, which generate the ranking. At the end of Season 2, the team ranked 1st will automatically qualify for the Live Grand Finals, while teams ranked 2nd - 17th will enter a playoff to determine the second team that will go to the Grand Finals. These teams will compete for their share of the $150,000 event in Southeast Asia.

Goal

HoN Tour is designed to impact the HoN community at every level; from the top levels of competition, to the core level of our player base. With a tiered system of rewards, top teams will be ushered into the Gold and Diamond Divisions, allowing up-and-coming teams to grow in a fair competitive setting. The more casual Silver and Bronze Divisions will only play on the weekends, allowing players with busy weekday schedules to participate in the Tour.
