Default Arena Season 24 Tournament and Rush Scheduled

Important Dates
Friday at midnight, November the 8th, 23:59 server time: Arena Rush Starts
Saturday, November the 16th, 17:00 server time: TOURNAMENT begins to determine final standing.

This will be the first ever arena tournament and the exact details are not yet set in stone, however, the top 16 teams will be expected to be present, grouped, and awaiting instruction. Those not present will forfeit their matches and lose rank (only 1 rank with the current proposed format). The tournament is expected to take 1-2 hours. It is our intention to have nonparticipants be able to watch the matches as they occur.

Following the tournament, rewards will be given based on final rankings, which range from TCs to undiscovered legendary items. The exact rewards can be seen in the FAQ (link at bottom of any Nodiatis page).

How Arena Rush Works
During the rush heavy participation will be required to solidify your place at the top. Players will need to play at least 4 games a day (starting that Friday, PRIOR to rush) to avoid Fast Rating decay, instead of the usual 1. Due to the multiplicative nature of the decay, if you wanted to avoid rating decay for 2 days without play, you would need to play 16 games. You would need to play 64 games in one day for 3 days of avoidance. Players are best off playing as many games as possible (4 a day keeps decay away!) because there will also be a 30% bonus to all rating increases during this final rush.

Rating decay is more significant during rush week as well. You will lose 5% of your Fast Rating each day you fail to meet participation requirements as opposed to the usual 2%. Slow Rating will decay by 2% each day regardless of participation as opposed to the usual 1%.

The double drop chance bonus from arena participation will also decay faster than usual during rush, requiring 50% more fights per day to maintain your current total. This is possible, however, due to your available queues being reset to the maximum (250 for 3v3 pre-made, 400 otherwise) at the start of the rush.

Once rush has begun, players will not be able to register for participation, so make sure you have already done so!

The Aftermath
Remember, the week after a season ends you can get tempers on items 2 tiers above normal due to a lessening of the rating restrictions. So save up your tokens and try to get a high-end temper on your favorite item that would normally be out of reach.
Computing the probability that at least one of the following events will occur:
P(a or b ... or z) = 1 - P(!a and !b ... and !z)
