This Conquer Cup goes to Midgard! And as in that classic coming of age tale by K.S.S. Bobkin, there are great prizes for the brave, the cunning, and the lucky.

In fact Midgard has the most precious 1st place prize in a Conquer Cup ever...

  • Winner: $500 USD Amazon Gift Certificate + 1 Red Conquer Star + 3000 Conquer Credits + Gold Super Achievement Medal
  • Finalists: $50 USD Amazon Gift Certificate + 1 Green Conquer Star + 2000 Conquer Credits + Silver Super Achievement Medal
  • Semi-Finalists: 2000 Conquer Credits + Bronze Super Achievement Medal
  • Quarter-Finalists: 500 Conquer Credits
The Conquer Cup VII will have 640 participants, first come first served. The Conquer Cup is fully automated, which means the games will automatically be created and players will be automatically matched and placed into games.

Good Luck and fair travels to ye all!

Not sure where this prize is coming from - the only prize that I know of to get entry into CC7 was placing highly in CC6. However if there are other such prizes please send the deets to king achilles who will help you out.

so it went from 5$ to 7$?? that's +40%!

If I remember well, when i got an Ipad i had the choice between an ipad or 450$. The finalists also had 50$
therefore, the real money prize pool has increased from 600$ to 650$ which isn't even 8% increase for a +40% entry fee.
So yeah, maybe you've put tons of conquer credits in the middle that cost practically nothing (less revenue for future conquer cups or renewed memberships though that can't be exactly quantified) but it's a bit cheeky to say that it's the most precious 1st place ever; best case scenario you multiply your bankroll by 75 instead of 90 like before. Therefore, thanks but not interested.

Also, I think it's more fun to put a real prize in stake. I was really happy to win an ipad and to have an actual cool prize coming from cc. It's a bit like ofering money to your kids for christmas. Sure, the money is cool, but a gift is more special. during this cup everyone goes like "i'm gonna win this ipad!!" the "i'm going to win the 500 bucks" sounds like a poker game.

Nope... he said "anyone who didnt get a free entry will get one for the next one". But I dont really care so much as to be a pain about it, just wondering if it still stands with the new leadership so I can expect to play/not to play.

Could you provide us a link to the post? If you meant this:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=193051

It just states, "The (Havoc) tournament is FREE TO PLAY. All that we ask is that you SHARE the Kickstarter project on Facebook or Twitter if able".

===========

If the reference post was made on June, and CCup VI started on July, it is most likely that any free entry you are referring to was pertaining to CCup VI.

It's an Amazon gift card. You can use it to buy an iPad from Amazon.
