Circuit Structure:

Players will qualify for our two-stage Championships by earning Rose Points (RP) at our various tournaments. Larger, more prestigious tournaments will reward players who excel with more Rose Points as well as potential prizes. Rose Tower will host three types of official events, but may run sanctioned alternatives for fun-tours alongside these.

The three official events types in order of weight are the Clash, Challenge, and Open:

  • The Rose Tower Clash is a free bi-weekly tournament to be held on the Nintendo Switch, using the official VGC 2020 format rules. Clashes are intended to be friendly and casual, yielding the least RP of all our official events.
  • The Rose Tower International Challenge is a larger tournament to be held once per stipend season before the corresponding International Championships. Challenges will all have an entry fee used to fund a prize pool rewarding the best players. They will also reward significantly more RP than Clashes.
  • The Rose Tower Open is our largest official event to be held thrice during the season, one for each timezone region. Opens will either be free or have a low entry fee, with a prize pool similar to that of the Challenges. They will also reward more RP than any of our other events, with finalists even earning themselves a direct invite to the Play-Offs of the Rose Tower Championships!

For more information on the official tournaments as well as their rewards, please refer to the “Official Tournaments” section here.
