Preseason league

How to participate in league events

Sign-in to events hub

Go to event.handsofvictory.com and log-in using your game log-in credentials. We recommend doing this on a laptop but you can do it on the phone where you have the game installed as well.

View event

Use the carousel to find the  event you want to register and check when registration opens. If it is open click “View event”.

 

Enter code

To register for the event you need a code. Codes are distributed via our discord, twitter, push notifications and via the Main Pre-season league page (in that order). Join/accept these channels in order to get early access. Enter the code.

Select character

Select “Select character as next step”. Select any of the four available character. Due to prior game action, one of them might be pre-selected. Ignore that. You MUST ACTIVELY select a character. Click/tap once to select and again to confirm.

Log-in to game

You are now in the lobby for this event. Time to fire up the mobile game. Make sure you’ve logged in and are in the Main Menu.
In order to play you must be in the Event Lobby and in the Game’s Main Menu SIMULTANEOUSLY. When it’s your time to play you will be automatically seated and a game will start on your phone.

 

Leave game and re-enter event lobby

Once a round game finishes you have to (a) leave the table on the phone (upper right hand corner) and return to main menu and (b) re-enter the lobby of the event on the web, select same or other character depending on rules of the event. Once you are in the Main Menu of the game and the event lobby on the event web you are ready to play the next round. Repeat after each round.

 

League Q&A

Please participate in this league in good faith. We’re a small studio with limited resources trying to invest in players and content creators rather than paying Facebook. We will 100% mess  things up along the way. 

SO WHAT'S THE FIRST RULE?

First rule is that all rules can be tweaked AT ANY TIME. We’re doing this to test things and make the game better. Issues with balancing, exploits or rules that were dumb from start will be fixed and come into effect on the fly.

 

WHAT'S THE LEAGUE EVENT FORMAT?

Each Pre-season league tournament uses a Round Robin format. Each player plays 3 rounds. Each round consists of playing 4-player St & Go and each Sit & Go is scored. In the event of odd participation numbers, the last game will be filled up by top scorers after the first 3 rounds. All points earned will count towards the overall league leaderboard.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

First signup for the league on our Event Hub.
Then download the game from Appstore or Google Play. Follow links or search for Skill Poker: Hands of Victory.
You log-in to the game and to the Event hub where all league tournaments are hosted using the same credentials.

WHEN IS THE FIRST LEAGUE EVENT?

The first league event codes will be distributed as soon as enough players have joined our Discord. Once we get going you will find the league schedule by logging into the Event Hub. We will announce events on Discord and on Twitter. Grind Mode is open 24/7 but we estimate that it will take a bit longer for those games to kick off. 

 

I'M NEW. DO I STAND A CHANCE?

The playing field is level in all league tournaments. All players can select from ANY of the playable characters and any of the free and (normally) locked abilities. But obviously previous playing experience is an advantage.

WHERE IS THE LEADERBOARD?

The leaderboard will be on display on this website once the league is fully underway. We will update it as frequently as we can. 

WHAT IS THE EVENTS HUB?

It’s a stand-alone web portal through which  tournaments can be hosted independently of Hands of Victory’s monthly competitive cycle. You log into the event portal, find your tournament and wait in the lobby. The app will automatically start the right game when it’s your turn to play.

SO HOW DO I WIN PRIZE MONEY?

 The top 50 league players at the end of the period will be invited to a final tournament which will use a variation of the round-robin tournament used throughout the league. Amount of prize money  depends on total participation.  The top 20 players in the final tournament will get paid through Paypal.
