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.

Solidarity International Challenge

In light of recent events in the world, as well as locally, in our very own community, it is clearer than ever that it is time for the VGG community to collectively take a stand against racism. It is time for us to come together, speak out, and help contribute to causes combating the discrimination and injustice which holds no place in our day and age. Racism is a complex issue deeply rooted in our society which needs weeding out. It is everyone’s problem. It is everyone’s duty to do what they can to fight it. Only together can we bring about real change.

We at Rose Tower are, likewise, fed up with the ongoing pervasive social injustice and have decided to hold a charity event to help out by doing what we do best. We will be raising donations for three charities we believe have the potential to make a real difference, with a particular focus on Minneapolis due to the murder of George Floyd at the hands of its local police.

All funds raised will be evenly distributed between Black Visions Collective, Reclaim the Block, and Know Your Rights Camp Legal Defense. We will consider expanding this list of recipients to include public goods organisations such as the Defend Glendale & Public Housing Coalition if we receive a high volume of donations. $10 of the entry fee to the tournament will be donated per entrant. Additional donations will be raised through sponsored individual livestreams from competitors during the Swiss stage of the tournament, as well as a livestreamed Top Cut, hosted by ourselves. Throughout the livestream, we will seek to spread awareness of the many forms racism can manifest in, whilst providing members of our community with a platform to voice their own experiences of discrimination.

It is time for each and every one of us to take a stand against racism, intolerance and discrimination. Do not just leave it at this event. Take action. Make your voice heard. Play your part. Together, we can build a brighter future, for everyone.

Event Stream: Twitch

If you are able to donate to the organisations directly with a credit card, we recommend you do so as to avoid unnecessary transaction fees! Let us know on Discord or Twitter (@RoseTowerVGC) and we’ll add your donation amount to our fundraiser total count.
