What's showdown and when will it take place
Showdown is a time-limited event which will take place at the same time as the current season and you can access it after completing the Pool Pass.
All you need to do is play matches and continue to gather Pool Points in order to conquer the Showdown Leaderboard.
After completing the Pool Pass you'll have access to the Showdown event tied to the current season.
Once you've finished your pool pass, when you access the Showdown page, you'll see the current Showdown Leaderboard, the entry point for the Showdown Tier and a glance of the desired Showdown Cups.
Any pool points you've gathered before entering Showdown will not be counted towards the Showdown Leaderboard.
Tickets are the temporary currency used on Showdown Tier. How can you obtain them?
- Upon unlocking the Showdown event;
- As a reward throughout the Pool Pass lane;
- With your Pool/Elite Pass;
- Periodically and for free - After every few hours, you'll be able to collect some tickets for free. and don't worry about losing them! Once the timer reaches zero, the next time you enter the Showdown screen, the Free Ticket popup will appear so you don't forget to collect it.
Every pool points you win will be counted towards the Showdown Leaderboard. You also have a new exclusive Showdown Tier in order to show your skills and get even more points and conquer your place in the Showdown Leaderboard.
The entry fee will be paid with Tickets and you'll also be able to see how many Pool Points you'll be awarded per match before entering it.
Only matches played after unlocking the Showdown event will be counted towards the Showdown Leaderboard. Every player starts the Showdown event with 0 Pool Points, regardless of how many points they collected so far.
Top rankers at the end of the event will be awarded with Showdown Cups.
With the introduction of the new season showdown, it was only appropriate to introduce new rewards for players. We bring you THE VAULT, which is going to be a bonus reward system for the new showdown system.
The bonus prizes from the vault will consist of extra tickets, boxes, and so on. To unlock these bonus rewards you would need to collect pool points after completing the pool pas to earn even more rewards.
The final rank of the bonus rewards is a endless loop that allow players to have a way to constantly acquire tickets for the season showdown, and climb the leadeborad for the big race to get the Golden Cup.
Cup & Cup Collection
Cups are a new collectable item for players to to gain. They work similarly to rings, with the difference being that there are 3 types: Gold, Silver or Bronze.
The version that is received depends on the players final position on the showdown leaderboard. Once acquired such a cup, you can then view it from the account profile.
Like the rings themselves, the purpose of these collectables are to enrich your account with the story of your progression, and most importantly, barging to your friends and club members.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if I get out of tickets?
- You can earn more tickets periodically (check Showdown Tickets section).
Will my pool points still count if I'm matched against the same player multiple times?
- Yes! Since the Showdown Tier doesn't allow rematches, every point counts.
Will the "progression bar" for the showdown pool points be shown? Like we have on pool pass?
- You'll see a progress bar for the current rank and you can check how many points you need to the next.
Can I keep my Showdown tickets from one season to another if i don't use them all?
- Unfortunately, no. Each Showdown season has unique tickets, so the tickets from one season are not the same for the next one.
