The most ambitious tournament ever organized in DOFUS is being unveiled! With a brand new format and bigger-than-ever rewards and a final that takes place live at Paris Games Week, the DOFUS World Series looks like it's going to be spectacular! From August until October, DOFUS World Series fights will be breaking out from one end of the World of Twelve to the other! With 1500 teams at the beginning of the qualifications stage being whittled down to just 8 qualifying for the championship, of which only two will make it to the grand final live at Paris Games Week, competition is going to be fierce for the fighters and nail-biting for the spectators! Do you think you have what it takes to go up against the best? Will you have the unfailing endurance and motivation needed to win the DWS and share the cash prize of at least €10,000 up for grabs with the 8 best teams? You won't know unless you try! Brand New Format For the first time in the history of DOFUS tournaments, the competition is divided into 3 stages: Qualification Stages Championship Final Stages The qualification stages will be played according to the DOFUS Cup format, in other words 17 Swiss-style rounds followed by the sweet sixteens played in BO3* and the elite eights played in BO5**. As a result, there will only be 8 teams left at the end of these battles. And this, you say to yourselves, is where we head into the quarter finals, as usual? Nope! The 8 qualifying teams will go head to head in a championship that promises to be epic and suspenseful as the game levels are likely to be higher! 14 days of matches will take place at a rate of two days a week. At the end of the championship, the 4 best teams will qualify for the final stages. They will then have the difficult task of defeating a final opponent during a BO5 to qualify for the grand final! *BO3: In this format, a team must win two matches to be declared the winner. The results of a BO3 could be 2-0 or 2-1. **BO5: In this format, a team must win three matches to be declared the winner. The results of a BO5 could be 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2. From the sweet sixteen of the qualifications stage until the end of the competition, the team compositions will be cast aside to make way for the draft system that was already used during the DOFUS Cup. Each team will have to modify its composition before each match, carrying out a draft stage. We have decided to add two forbiddings during this stage, as the number of classes has now reached 18: A forbids a class B forbids a class A chooses a class B chooses a class B forbids a class A forbids a class B forbids a class A forbids a class B chooses a class A chooses a class A forbids a class B forbids a class A chooses a class B chooses a class As a reminder, when a class is forbidden, none of the two teams can choose it or forbid it again. When a class is chosen by one of the two teams, the other can no longer forbid it or choose it again. The map where the combat will take place will be known prior to the draft stage, so it is possible to plan your team composition to suit the location and your attack strategy. A Competition with Multiple Editions As you've no doubt guessed from the addition of "Summer Edition 2017" on this magnificent logo (it is magnificent, isn't it?), there will be two editions of the DWS per year. Our aim is to successfully provide you with stable competitive PvP system in the long-run, where everyone finds their niche, both as participants and as spectators. This first edition is a little bit special, since none of the teams have appeared in the championship yet: that's why the best 8 teams from the qualification stages will qualify. For future editions, only be the best 3 teams from the qualifications will be given the opportunity to continue their adventure in the championship: The winning team will automatically replace the team that came 8th in the previous edition's championship The teams that came in second and third place will have a BO5 play-off against the teams that came 6th and 7th in the previous edition's championship to take their place. By taking part in this first edition, your chances of reaching the championship will be almost tripled. What are you waiting for! Rewards The cash prize at the DWS launch will be worth €10,000. But this amount can change! From today and until the tournament final, two exclusive items are on sale in our shop: the Zadioc Set and the Gladiator Emote. Zadioc Set Gladiator Emote Each time one of these items is sold, 50% of the sale price is immediately transferred to the cash prize. So, half of the money you spend will be redistributed to players at the end of the tournament! It's a way for you to increase the reward for the future winners, while benefitting from unique and exclusive items that will never again be available to buy after this edition of the DWS! Once the tournament is over, you will have a little souvenir to show other players that you were there for this first edition! And, of course, we'd just like to make it clear that participation in the tournament is completely free, and you do not, under any circumstances, need to contribute to the cash prize to register. You can watch the cash prize grow almost in real time** on the event page. **Purchases will be added to the sum displayed with a delay of 24 hours How can you take part? As the name indicates, the DOFUS World Series are international, so you can take part regardless of which community you belong to. To register for the tournament, you will need a team that includes 3 different players with a character of level 150 or over. Moreover, for the qualification stages, your team's composition will have to respect the following rules: It cannot contain more than one class from this list: Osamodas Sacrier Xelor Eniripsa Feca The following class pairings are forbidden: Sadida/Osamodas Masqueraider/Osamodas Masqueraider/Sacrier Ecaflip/Feca Ouginak/Feca Enutrof/Xelor Enutrof/Sacrier Enutrof/Eliotrope Your character's level and their equipment is not important. You will all use the same weapons in the arena, since the tournament will be played on a special server where all the characters will start off on an equal footing: Level 200 All level 6 spells Basic characteristics of 100 in addition to 995 characteristic points to be divided up A bank containing nearly all of the equipment available above level 160. In other words, if you think you've got what it takes to go head to head with the best, but you're worried your character isn't powerful enough, you shouldn't hesitate to sign up. You'll have as good a chance as anyone! Please note: If you'd like to change your character's class so your team can register for the tournament, you'll need to do so before June 30th (11:59 p.m.), or your registration will be considered invalid. Similarly, you are also not permitted to reserve a server transfer for Tuesdays July 4th and 11th.

Before you dive in oysters and chocolate, let's briefly review the year 2016. Tot also takes the opportunity to give you a brief overview of 2017. In short, because all the details will be given to you in Gamakna! Good evening everyone, I hope you are well and that you are already planning to enjoy the end of the year. First of all, I would like to apologize for one thing: we promised you more communication and exchanges and I know that in recent months we have not fulfilled our commitments. The reasons are as many as the projects we have to manage, but in reality there is no excuse to have. So I'm sorry about our lack of feedback on some topics and I hope to catch up with this "intermediate" topic. It is not a true "letter to the community", but it will look a bit like it, from a distance, in the mind. I promised you something great at the end of the year to replace this famous letter to the community, and I am sorry to say that this will not happen until early January. But wait is worth the candle because it is unheard of for a studio ... Well, ok, I may add a little to put pressure on the team, but for us it's still one of the major subjects of 2017 and I will talk about it in more detail a few lines below. To close this little introduction, know that I will also take the opportunity to make a point with you on the premise of what 2017 will be in terms of content for different games. I want to make it clear that the lines are drawn but nothing is fixed. So here is the opportunity to gather your informed opinions (do not hesitate to leave us comments). GAMAKNA: The interactive magazine As I told you a while ago, we've been working a new way to communicate with you, more pro, more efficient, more complete, more regular, more full of things. It bothers me deeply because I wanted it to be Ankama's "Christmas present" to Ankamians, but the project is so big we're going to be late. The idea is to make a virtual magazine bimonthly decorated with a few exclusive series. We have invested in a rather incredible solution that will allow us to present our concepts and productions in the form of texts, visuals and videos. The images can be fixed, animated, interactive... We have a lot of possibilities. On the other hand, we just do it, we test the project so do not expect to have all this in the first issue. But gradually, we will try things. Until even maybe place small games in it. The whole will therefore be as playful as instructive and available as well on computers as on mobiles and tablets. You will discover below some visuals of the work in progress but in general, imagine the Dofus Mag which comes back to life, free and full of information about all the projects of Ankama. As I wrote above, a few exclusive series will highlight the news. For example, we are already planning a special one for Krosmoz E-sport and another on Krosmaga. The advantage of this project is that it fits our relationship with you and that it excites (in the right way) everyone in-house. KROSMOZ 2017: Our thoughts E-sports / Ouginak class / Level 200+ / Server merging / ... As every year, we have a global theme for all games related to the Krosmoz universe. The year 2017 will be based on the "Brotherhood of the Forgotten" in relation to season 3 of the WAKFU series. Whether it is Dofus, Wakfu, Krosmaster or Krosmaga, we are going to have updates that speak of this group of characters that has been raging for centuries in the universe of Krosmoz. The other more "functional" theme that we will develop is that of E-sport. It's been a while since you've been talking about it and we're going to do everything we can to develop that part as it should. We will give you details very soon on all this. DOFUS 3 Thread regarding Dofus 3. (New Dofus 3 artwork) We announced to you that the video of the conference on Dofus 3 would be available... I regret to announce that our friends of the TGS can not provide it to us (I fear that the reason is "we forgot to record", so the subject is avoided). But it does not matter, we'll do another :). Concerning this project, I would like to share with you the development and the decisions that we will take. With a little distance and following the first exchanges with you, we decided to use Unity as main technology rather than HTML5 as with Dofus Touch. This will lead us to a longer production, but will allow us much more graphic flexibility. You will have access to the video presentation of the project in the 1st issue of the Gamakna and a dedicated forum will open its doors in the stride to start sharing our tracks with you. KROSMAGA The last one of the studio is like a charm. The baby is well arrived, the dads and the moms are tired but happy. While the game is in beta, you are already more than 40,000 to have tested it and, quite crazy thing, we turn to 15,000 distinct players not day. We take the opportunity to announce that the very first official tournament will be born in January! The game will be released in official version in the first quarter of 2017 on mobiles with its arena system and its first dungeon. I also take advantage of it to thank all alpha and beta testers (except those who roll me on without shame). WAKFUNDING and WAKFU Season 3 Thank you once again for your tremendous support during the Wakfunding. The series is progressing well and we are at 6-7 episodes produced. Maybe I miss a step back, but in terms of animation series, I think we have here our most impressive work. It's beautiful, it's beautiful and beautiful! Even if the writer (me) has not written any stuff for it, at least you will have beautiful pictures to put you under your eye ^^. Good news, we got the agreement of our partners to present the first episodes in preview on some events. And this will be done in January / February for the lucky ones. The series has taken a decidedly more adolescent-adult turn, I hope you like it. In any case, we look forward to your feedback. And personally, I can not wait to see our torturers-critics-background understand that "everything was planned". PRINCESS DRAGON: The top secret project we won't say much about Well... I'm not telling you anything, I'm just showing you a little visual. It is a film project that we develop "underwater" with JJ, my pooch pooch. After the non-success of the film DOFUS - Book I: Julith, we launched a pre-production on another feature. History to forget depression, misunderstanding, sons of criticism... Finally story to change ideas. The project is definitely for children with the idea of going through the classic channels of production (understand: "lower our standards because we took pride on the first film" :)). It's a story we've been developing for a few months, and I'd like to talk to you a lot, but JJ does not want me to show you more than one image. He doesn't mess with people. We won the right to present the concept to the Cartoon Movie in March and we will tell you more based on the returns. If you're interested, obviously. Bah, at least in the meantime it will make you a beautiful wallpaper: Meetups: Another very important point of next year is our willingness to meet you to do stuff. We have somewhat calmed the salons in the last two years, but with the idea of organizing more competitive events we will resume our tours. We are selecting a series of events, if you have any in mind, do not hesitate to let us know. Final words: I suggest you continue the discussion with me on the forum to answer your questions. It's time to enjoy it, I have a week of holidays and I risk getting bored. In any case, I wish you all a very good holiday season. Krosmozment, Tot Click here or scroll down to read further.
