Everyone is welcome to join in our weekly community races. Synced races are at 8PM EST on Thursdays and 7PM EST on Saturdays, and we also have recurring async races (Seed of the Week, Living Seed, Draft Async) as well. Learn how to participate here!
The Grand Melee: To begin the event, all entrants will gather on the floor of the Coliseum for a single week-long free-for-all async race. The best 32 times in this race will advance to the main event to fight for ultimate glory, while the remaining combatants will fight for survival instead in a different contest.
The Coliseum: For the main event, the top 32 finishers from the Grand Melee will be randomly seeded into a double elimination tournament bracket of weekly 1v1 sync races. Each week of the tournament, the gladiators will arm themselves with that week’s flagset, chosen from an armory of tournament flagsets specially procured by the Coliseum staff for this event. Each 1v1 match will play a unique seed from that week’s chosen flagset.
As this is a double elimination tournament, gladiators will not be eliminated until they have suffered two defeats. This includes the finals: the winner of the loser’s bracket will have to claim victory over the undefeated champion of the winner’s bracket twice in order to be crowned the Grand Champion and forever earn the Coliseum Champion role in the WC Discord.
Chupon’s Pit: Those who do not earn a Top 32 placement in the Grand Melee will still get an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of 1v1 sync racing in the depths of Chupon’s Pit, the consolation tournament bracket for this event. Unlike the main event, there is no room for failure in the Pit: this is a single elimination bracket, where just one loss will spell an inglorious end to that pit fighter’s Coliseum campaign.
Tournament of the Month (on-going)
Info - Google Docs
The Tournament of the Month wheel has been spun, and we're going back in time all the way to the long ago days of Feb-Apr 2022 with Battle Royale Progression. Starting with the week 3 flagset, each week of the TotM will be played using the increasingly challenging flags of the 2022 Battle Royale. Will reigning BR champion @Xelpher show everyone that he's still the king of the Battle Royale? Will this be 2022 Runner Up @DoctorDT's chance to get some sweet revenge? Or will @Boo dust off his commemorative Battle Royale Fixed Dice and show these upstarts how the 2020 Battle Royale champ does things?
Week 1 flags will be !preset br3, week 2 flags will be !preset br5, and the finals flagset will be !preset br s/f. The tournament runs for three weeks starting on Sunday Sept 4. No sign-up necessary, just jump in the race room for the first async and you're all set to go. Full rules are in this doc, and as always, let me know if you have any questions. See you all on Sunday!

What’s New for Season Two?
If you played Ultros League in Season One, you already know all the basics: 8 weeks, 4 tiers of competition, the strongest finishers get promoted to higher tiers while the lowest finishes risk demotion. If you’re new or looking for a refresher, check out the full rules and info right here.
Since Ultros League is aimed to be a “standard flags” style experience, you’ll find the flagset is almost identical this season. That said, we’ve made two minor tweaks:
1) The Retort bug fix flag is enabled (Note: this glitch was already prohibited through league rules, so this has no impact on UL play)
2) Flash Remove: Worst has now been enabled
There have been no other changes to the flags – scaling, character/esper requirements, stats, and everything else related to game mechanics is just the way you remember from season one.

If you're newer to the game and want to hone your knowledge and skills, this is a great opportunity to do so! On the flip side, if you've been around for a while and you want to pass along some hard-earned knowledge, there are plenty of folks who want to learn!
Ultros League is an ongoing series of async races designed to offer players of all skill levels an opportunity to compete in a fun race environment. Players in this league are seeded into different divisions, roughly by skill level, where they compete in week-long standard race asyncs against the other racers in that division. At the end of the season, top performers in each division get promoted to the next tier, while the lowest racers get relegated down one tier. Seasons run for 8 weeks, with breaks between each season. Please check out the links above for full rules, schedule, and sign-up info!“
At the end of February, we'll be kicking off the 2022 Battle Royale! This will be an elimination tournament embracing a 'pod' concept, slowest time(s) eliminated each round until only one remains!

Get more details on the Worlds Collide twitch channel on Friday, July 16 at 8pm ET when there will be an overview of the format/tournament with Elastoid and Edgeworth, the creators and admins of the tournament, along with an exhibition race!
This is a new Worlds Collide challenge in a bracket-style, double-elimination, 1v1 tournament! Gladiators will face off against an opponent each round in what I’m calling a semi-synchronous race. Every round will have a flagset, but each pair of gladiators will have their own seed. Not everyone in the round needs to fight at the same time, but you and your rival do! Winner advances, loser goes to the loser's bracket for one last chance at victory! Races will be restreamed on the FF6 Worlds Collide Twitch channel.
