Current token criteria are listed here: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=207817&p=4556455#p4556466
They will change from time to time. That post will be updated when there are changes.
Im looking forward to the Great War bash that promises to steal way too much of my time. - Im still a bit overwhelmed by the number of tokens seemingly required, but I trust I dont actually need 51,000
A couple of questions though:
1) If someone was silly enough to try to get into every single tournament, then how many tokens would be needed? If its not determined exactly yet, a best guess would be nice as well
Well, after I read your post I did a rough estimate in my head. The tournaments that are currently up, if you were to join them all, cost 9 tokens. They will be up for roughly a week before the next batch, which will be approximately the same size, maybe slightly larger. So, for the next month expect to use something like 9-15 tokens per week, or something in the neigbourhood of 40 to 50.
Once we are caught up and are in real time, DoomYoshi said the rate of new tournaments would be cut in half. So, for every month except the first, expect to use something between 20 and 25. There are just under 51 months in the event, so call it (50x22.5)+(1x45) which works out to 1170. That's a misleading level of precision though. Given all the uncertainties involved, we really should have no more than 1 significant digit in our answer, so I would say not less than a thousand and not more than two thousand.

Once they're gone, they're gone. We're following the events of the war. Each event only happens once. There may be some repetition with repetitive battles, of course. First and Second Battle of Champagne, First and Second Battle of Kut, etc., might result in repeating an old tournament, or they might have completely new tournaments associated with them. Time will tell. Especially with all the different Battles of the Isonzo, I would expect that maybe some battle will be replicated along the way. Still, those situations will be rare, and in 99% of the cases, assume that if you miss it, you miss it permanently.
I would recommend one thing, though. (And I hope DoomYoshi doesn't have me executed for giving away too much here.) I think even if you can't join every tournament, you should at least read the description of each one. There will be non-game events, and among the many ideas we have thought about are some of the following:
- Role-playing contests, where you're rewarded for making a creative forum post in the voice of a historical personage, and some of what happened to them in the battles may be relevant.
- Historical trivia contests, and if we do any of those, then data about some of the battles will definitely be relevant.
- Hidden symbol searches, where symbols may be hidden in any place relevant to the great war, including the tourney descriptions.
- Cryptography challenges, where there may be a hidden message in some description or other.
I'm not promising that any specific one of those will actually be used as the War unfolds, but if you are serious about riding high in the scoreboard you should be at least considering the possibilities, and reading every
