Hello keen players of The West!


We have exciting news for you today! We would like to announce the second official International Fort Battle Championship! Below, we have outlined the rules of the tournament as well as detailing how it will work. Stay tuned for more information regarding this prestigious event - coming soon!

The championship will be an International competition between teams. Each language server creates its own team, which will include fort battle leaders. (Minimum: 140 players; Maximum: 150 players). Each team needs to be able to fill a large fort with players for each and every match. The schedule of matches will be shown in the timetable.


Registrations to the event are now open until the 28th August 2017.
The event and IFBC, Part 2 world will open and start on the 11th September 2017.
Fort battles will start on the 28th September 2017.
  • Matches will be held for 10 weeks (Weeks 1 - 7: Group stage, Weeks 8 - 10: Finals stage)
  • Matches will be played from Monday to Saturday during each week. (Group stage: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, Finals stage: Wednesday and Saturday)
Every match played in the group stages will earn points for teams as follows:

  • Match won by defending team due to all rounds being played: +1
  • Match won by defending team due to all players being defeated: +2

Finals Stage:

The leading four teams at the end of the group stage will take part in a round robin of matches to be the best fort battle team in the world. Each team that progresses to this stage will play matches against the other teams involved. Points will be awarded for this stage in the same way as in the group stage.

How many skill/attribute points will I have?
Number of skill and attribute points depends on your character level. Your character level will be set to level 150, which means you have leveled up 149 times. This means that the character has 149 attribute points and 149 * 3 (447) skill points.

What about my Duel Level?
Every character will have the same Duel Level set to 0.

Can I have all my items in my inventory on my local server transferred to the event server?

How will I get my login information for my character on the event server?
A player wanting to participate in the International Fort Battle Championship must provide their Community Manager with the exact same player name and email address as shown on their local server through the form provided. Once the registration has been done, the player will receive an email which then can be used to retrieve a new password and log into the event server.

One day after the fort battle has taken place.

What is the purpose of the leaders?
Leaders command, choose a team, decide who and when they will fight. If your team is defending - your team leaders will need to choose 120 players, and in the attack - 140 players. "Reserve" can have 10 players - everyone in a team may not have the opportunity to participate in every battle.

Are activities that have nothing to do with the progress battle, allowed on the international event server? Can we, for example, play the game normally? etc...
Nothing is off limits, you can play the game as per normal if you are not participating in an active fort battle and provided that your team is still in the event.

  • The scoring system has changed slightly, no negative points will be issued in this event.
If I participate in the IFBC, will I lose my progress on my local server?
No. We are merely cloning your character's player name and email address to create a new character on the event server for you. Nothing on your local account will be touched.

Will there be a dedicated support team for the event server or will I need to contact my local support team if I have any problems?
Yes, the event server will be accompanied with their very own support system, moderation team and forum.

Who is going to choose the leaders of my team?
The Community Manager on your local server will be responsible for choosing your leaders. The maximum amount of leaders allowed is 10.

We had some issues with racial slurs due to the diverse amount of different races participating in the last event. What can I do if this happens again?
Under no circumstances will The West Team tolerate any form of racism on the event server. If you are a victim of racism, please use the appropriate report options found in the game to report these communication violations.

My team is out of the championship, what can I do now?
Unfortunately there is nothing left for you to do in the event other than watch fort battles. You may not interfere with other players still participating in the event i.e. Duelling.

What happens to my progress once the event has ended? Can I transfer my items over to my local server?
No. Any and all progress, be this currency or items will not be transferred over to your local server. Only special items awarded to a participant will be carried over to your local server.

Can I participate in Tombolas or any holiday event even the traveling fair on the event server?
All holidays events such as tombolas have been disable on the event server, this includes the traveling fair.

How do we select our 150 players?
Each team will have leaders allocated, these leaders in turn will then choose who they would like on their team. This will only be the case if there are more than 150 entrants per team. If there are less than 150 entrants per team, all members will be elected to participate in the championship.
