Information & Rules

Legends Cup XIII is due to commence on July 15 with the Qualifiers. The tournament will run across four weeks and conclude not only with the Grand Finals battle but also with the match for the third place.

Qualifiers: July 15th & 16th

Quarterfinals: July 22nd & 23rd

Semifinals: July 29th & 30th

Grand Final and 3rd Place Match: August 5th

In order for the tournament to run smoothly, we are putting the following rules in place. They are based on the previous tournament’s rules:

  • Reviews will only be allowed for Grand Final and the match for third place, and will be conducted by unaffiliated (to the battle) Head Judges.
  • Just like in the previous tournaments, there have been deadlines set in regard to the review process:
    • Leaders cannot request a review after 3 hours from the long results being posted, and they cannot submit evidence more than 21 hours after requesting a review (videos should be submitted as soon as possible).
    • Head Judges must inform both armies about the review, and if it is going ahead as soon as possible.
    • The deadline for the Head Judges to review the battle will be 24 hours after the evidence deadline.
  • Dual enlistment is not allowed, and individuals may only attend for one army. They must stick with that army for the duration of the tournament, even after an army is eliminated.
  • The judging will be undertaken by Club Penguin Army Judges and organized by the Head Judges.
  • All armies have a right to veto two judges per battle. Once an army has vetoed two judges, it cannot decline any more for that battle. Vetos cannot occur past the four hour mark, and the Head Judges can not be vetoed per new judging guidelines.
  • Judges will be announced well in advance (typically shortly after the week’s schedule is announced).
  • All battles will have 3 judges, with the exception of the finals, which will have 5 judges.
  • Each army will have 2 vetos per battle. However, in the Grand Finals, the participating armies will be allowed to have 3 vetos, only if there are enough judges to ensure the places are filled. If there aren’t, the current veto rules will remain.
  • Anybody banned from CPA Battleground cannot participate in tournament battles (including but not limited to attending on alts, leading from Discord or other third-party websites, etc.) If found guilty of violating this rule by administrator discretion, the army they are involved with will be disqualified.


The seedings for Legends Cup XIII were based on the last four weeks before the tournament’s organization commenced. In case of a tie, the higher maxes were the deciding factor.
