In the wake of Jamyl Sarum I’s tragic death yesterday, CCP Logibro announced on the Alliance Tournament live stream and on the forums that, as is tradition, each Amarrian House will put forth a champion to fight to the death to win that house the empire. This time, however, capsuleers will be the combatants. The details as posted by CCP Logibro are copied below.
So as announced during Alliance Tournament XIII, the Amarr championships are going to happen. The Amarr championships are part of the Succession Trials used to select the new emperor of the Amarr Empire from one of the heirs of the royal houses of Amarr. We’ll be announcing more details in the weeks to come (including things like rules and how to register), but here are the important things you need to know right now:
- The finals will be taking place at Fanfest 2016, so you need to be able to travel to Iceland. That means you need a passport. If you are selected to participate in the finals, we’ll be flying you over. This also includes accommodation and entry to Fanfest.
- Only Amarr ships will be permitted in the tournament. More specifically, only ships that require an Amarr ships skill, and no other kind of racial ship skill will be permitted. This means all T2 Amarr ships will be allowed (including Khanid), but Sansha, SOE, and Blood Raider ships will not be permitted.
- You will need to have positive standings with the Amarr Empire to participate
- Your character’s race does not need to be Amarrian to be able to participate.
Additionally, before anyone asks: you may not put forward an heir of your choice to be considered in the succession trials,.
