Tournament (Championship in Wipeout, AG League in Wipeout Fusion) is a game mode in the Wipeout series. A tournament is a series of a number of races, which take place in the succession.

GameplayEdit

The maximum number of races in a single tournament depends on the game; e.g. in Wipeout HD/Fury, you can set up to 12 races in a tournament. The gameplay itself is similar to single races, but when a race is over, a new race will start and keep going this way until no more races are available. At the end of each race, points are given to each contender depending on their final positions. The tournament has a unique regulation related to elimination. In typical cases, players eliminated in a race are awarded no points. To win a tournament, winning each race is not necessary, but accumulating the most points at the end of the tournament is a must.

ScoringEdit

WipeoutEdit

In Wipeout, the scoring system for the Championship is as below:

  • First place - 9 points
  • Second place - 7 points
  • Third place - 5 points
  • Fourth place - 3 points
  • Fifth place - 2 points
  • Sixth place - 1 point
  • Seventh place or lower - 0 points

In addition to the point scoring, the player must finish a race in the top three in order to Qualify for the next race. To further increase difficulty, the player is limited to a total of three retries, which they can use every time they finish in fourth or lower. To add more challenge, the player must finish the Championship in the first place in the overall standings.

Wipeout 3Edit

In Wipeout 3, the scoring system for the Tournament is as below:

  • First place - 10 points
  • Second place - 6 points
  • Third place - 4 points
  • Fourth place - 3 points
  • Fifth place - 2 points
  • Sixth place - 1 point
  • Seventh place or lower - 0 points
  • Elimination rule: No points awarded if the player gets eliminated.

Winning a tournament on Vector will unlock Venom to play on this mode. The same proceeds for Rapier and Phantom.

Wipeout Pure, Wipeout Pulse, and Wipeout HD/FuryEdit

In Wipeout Pure, Wipeout Pulse, and Wipeout HD/Fury, the scoring system for the Tournament is as below:

  • First place - 8 points
  • Second place - 6 points
  • Third place - 5 points
  • Fourth place - 4 points
  • Fifth place - 3 points
  • Sixth place - 2 points
  • Seventh place - 1 point
  • Eighth place - 0 points
  • Elimination rule: No points awarded if the player gets eliminated.

In Pure, winning the Alpha League tournament unlocks the Beta League. Winning the Beta League tournament allows the player to play the Ascension Tournament, which allows the player to unlock higher Speed Classes. Winning the Flash Ascension Tournament also unlocks alternate livery for all eight standard teams.
