The Leaderboard

Tournament Organisers submit the results of events that they run to the site and these results feed into the Leaderboard. This tracks player progress and ranks them based on their achievements throughout the year.

Each December marks the end of the current season and the start of the next. After the conclusion of each season, various end of year awards are given to players and the top 16 players for the season are invited to the UK Masters Event.

Leaderboards are also available for each Faction in the Kings of War game.

Top of each Faction is also invited to the UK Masters Event, if the Faction has scored over 200pts in the Season.

If a player has supported the UK KoW scene enough to gain the points to qualify for masters or best of faction, then that player has qualified for UK masters regardless of where that player lives.

Ranked Events

In order to be counted towards player rankings, events must meet various criterea. Events which don't meet these criterea can still be listed on the site and still have their results recorded, however any attending players will not score any points for the leaderboard.

The requirements for an event to be ranked are:

  • the event must be a singles or doubles event
  • a singles event must have at least 10 players
  • a doubles event must have at least 10 teams
  • fanmade army lists are not legal (event specific monsters, heroes etc are fine)
  • the event must be open to all* and not be invitational
  • mixed game events must not give bonuses in Kings of War games**
  • If a TO makes changes to the scoring of a tournament without informing the players prior to list submission, or keeps the scoring secret, and plays themselves then the TO's position will not be scored for the purposes of masters scoring.

* with the exception of any specifically banned players (note: we are unaware of any players being banned from UK events so far).

** for example, a mixed Vanguard and KoW event cannot be ranked if the players earn bonuses in the KoW games, such as additional artefacts or re-rolls, depending on their performance in the Vanguard games.

No joint rankings, you must be able to split ties when you submit the results.

Masters Event

At the end of each season, the top 16 players and the top of each Faction (if the Faction has scored over 200pts in the Season), alongside the previous UK National Champion, are invited to the UK Masters tournament held around February each year. In the event that two or more of those invited is unable to attend or declines the invitational, the 17th top rated player is invited, then the 18th and so on until a minimum of 16 spots are filled.

The winner of this event is crowned the UK National Champion for that season.
