Teams ranked 4th through 11th will enter into a Double Elimination 8 team playoff to determine the 4th and final team qualified for the finals.
Every Division pays cash prizes at the end of every Event Cycle.
HoN Tour is designed to impact the HoN community at every level; from the top
levels of competition, to the core level of our player base. With a tiered system of
rewards, top teams will be ushered into the Gold and Diamond Divisions, allowing
up-and-coming teams to grow in a fair competitive setting. The more casual Silver
and Bronze Divisions will only play on the weekends, allowing players with busy
weekday schedules to participate in the Tour.
Placement in each Event Cycle determines a team's promotion or relegation to Divisions in the next Event Cycle. Earned points determine a team's Event Cycle seeding within their Division. Team progress is tangible and can be tracked at every level. With higher divisions paying greater cash prizes, it is especially rewarding when teams earn a promotion to the next Division. All Divisions pay cash prizes at the end of every Event Cycle, spreading the wealth and the thrills of competition to players of all skill levels.
