Nearly two years since the Southeast Asia launch of action-RPG MMO Dragon Nest, the time is now ripe for a special kind of fight. Cherry Credits and Shanda Games International have announced the inaugural Dragon Nest World Championship (DWC), where players across multiple service regions will battle it out for shot at truly being the best. Before you scoot off to China for the grand finals, however, you’ll first need to surpass the national qualifiers.
For players in Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines, you have until Sunday, 20 October to have your team participate in the DWC arena. The top 16 teams from each country will then compete in their respective National Qualifiers, where the winning team will be sent on an all-expenses-paid trip to Shanghai, China for the main event.
“We are bringing PvP in Dragon Nest to a whole new stage in the Dragon Nest World Championship,” said Mr Addison Kang, Vice-President and Producer of Shanda Games International. “For the first time ever, the different regional publishers of Dragon Nest are working together to bring these serious PvP players to compete on an international platform. To the players, it is no longer just being the champion of Dragon Nest China, Dragon Nest Korea, or Dragon Nest SEA. This time, the winner of this competition will truly be the champion of Dragon Nest.”
All the information you need is on the DWC page, but here’s a few key points you’ll need to know:
- The DWC Matches are open only between 5:00PM to 11:59PM, GMT +8.
- Players will be able to create one Level 60 DWC character, provided you already have a Level 10 or above character in your account.
- You can only choose 1st Specialisation Job Classes.
- Teams must consist of three participants. The leader can create one by speaking to the Colosseum Manager in-game, followed by inviting the other two members.
- You can only join one team at a time.
- All three members must be from the same participating country. Only one Permanent Resident is allowed.
- Teams with a score higher than 1,800 points must play 10 matches per week or face a penalty of 100 points.
