Overview

The June 2013 update to Tower Wars introduces Season Play and the new Official Season Leaderboard!

Participation is simple! ALL Ranked 1v1 games played will now qualify as season games for the currently active season (season lengths will vary).

The Official Tower Wars Leaderboard can now also be viewed in a browser or directly from the game, allowing you to check your season standing at any time! Player Scores will be recorded and ranked as usual until the end of the season.

At the end of a season (specific time will be indicated), a snapshot of the leaderboard will determine the winners! Those winners will then be declared and awarded various Prizes and Steam Achievements That season's Leaderboard will then be archived and available to to view any time. The leaderboard will then be reset for the start of the next season (which will not necessarily be immediate).

Participation is open to any and all Tower Wars players, worldwide, and there are no limitations imposed on repeat winners! Do you think you can win more than one season? Good luck! New players are taking the stage all the time and you'll face some stiff competition to defend your crown!

Player Score

Your position (rank) on the leaderboard is determined by your Player Score. By default, all players start with a Player Score of 1000.

Your personal Player Score is displayed in-game on the top right corner of the main menu screen.

Once you have played your first game your Player Score will either go up or down, based on a formula that considers the following:

  • Win or Loss.
  • Your opponent's Player Score as compared to your Player Score.

If you win, your Player Score will always go up. If you lose your Player Score will always go down. The specific amount of points that you gain or lose is determined by the difference in Player Score between you and your opponent. For example, beating a lesser-ranked opponent will increase your Player Score marginally, while beating a higher-ranked opponent will result in a larger Player Score increase.

Leaderboard

The Official Tower Wars Leaderboard is no longer located on the Steam's servers. The new Official Season Play Leaderboard is located at Season Rankings Leaderboard. The Leaderboard displays the current season standings by default. As more seasons are completed, you will be able to find the archived standings of previous seasons by using the drop down box.

Rewards

At the end of each season, the top 100 players will be rewarded, so there is an excellent chance to win a prize!
