It's back! The Abyss Joust #3 is coming up soon, and in this devblog post, we're going to tell you all about it! Check out every aspect of this inter-server tournament that's shaping up to be as epic as ever.


The Abyss Joust is a PvP competition held on the DOFUS Touch platform. This is the community's main event, bringing together players from every server around the world!

The competition will pit 256 teams against one another, each consisting of three different players, in an online "Swiss Rounds" elimination format. The final stages will be based on a single-elimination bracket with a best-of-three format for the elimination rounds and a best-of-five format for the final.

The entire tournament will be played online on a single specific server, where all equipment needed for the tournament will be available to all participants. This server is closed to spectators, except for those with special authorization (e.g. streamers, moderators, etc.).

The tournament will be managed by Ankama and by Krosmoz Tournaments Arena (KTA). Registration and tournament updates will be managed on the KTA website and Discord server:

Each team must participate in the 10 rounds shown on the schedule.

After a 10-minute grace period for late arrivals, any team that has not shown up in full will be declared forfeit. The team that is present must contact a referee as soon as possible to confirm the forfeit.

A match will be declared a draw at the end of the 20th turn. Draws will only occur during the qualification rounds, except in round 10, during which there will be no turn limit. This is to avoid any arrangements aimed at ensuring qualification!

Final Stages

The second qualification stage will consist of a head-to-head, single-elimination bracket.

There will be no draws during this stage, and all matches will be played "best two out of three" (BO3), except for the finals which will be "best out of five" (BO5).
