Tournaments are events held where ship designs compete in elimination brackets. Each ship fits into a category of similar ships which it fights. Fights are conducted automatically. The first tournaments conducted by the developer Arthur went with the following format.
General restrictions are that you can only use parts obtainable in the campaign, and no factories. There are also a few other restrictions, and category-specific restrictions. This page is for archiving the results of past tournaments.
Starting in the second Kickstarter Tournament (9/21/14) the tournaments were conducted slightly differently. Before the stream, each ship fought every other ship in a "Round Robin" and the win/loss ratios were used to determine which ships entered a 16-ship final elimination round. Each competitor was allowed a maximum of 2 ship designs into the finals to keep the finals competitive and varied. This meant that, if 16 or less ships in total were submitted to a category, the Round Robin would not eliminate any ships from the finals, but would give a good idea of which ships would do well in the finals.
Starting in the third Kickstarter Tournament (9/28/14) two new rules for all categories were added. These were: no ships with a radius larger than 1000, and no ships with a minimal thrust/weight ratio (exact numbers yet to be determined).
So far, every tournament has had four general categories and Tanks. Category restrictions:
250 P or less.
1000 P or less.
3000 P or less.
6000 P or less.
2000 P or less. Only weapons allowed are Plasma Cannons. No shields.
In the PAX tournament there were 3 unique special categories.
2000 P or less. Only missiles allowed.
1000 P or less. No hull, shields, or containers allowed.
1500 P or less. Only proton swords allowed.
In the first Kickstarter tournament there were two non-faction 8 categories. Both had a P limit of 1000.
