Ubisoft announced today they would be doing a Pub­lic Test for Duel Tour­na­ments for their com­pet­i­tive fight­ing game For Hon­or. It will be ranked and play­ers will have to bat­tle their way through 20 start­ing match­es to before being put into one of five tiers (Bronze, Sil­ver, Gold, Plat­inum, or Dia­mond), which is based on the player’s per­for­mance.

These tiers are then divid­ed into 5 groups, this is to ensure a fair fight, as the play­ers are then matched based on sim­i­lar skill. As always, because this is a Pub­lic Test, any progress and rewards made dur­ing the tour­na­ment will not be saved after it is over on July 4th.

All play­ers will receive rewards when depend­ing on their per­for­mance, but only one play­er will take the cham­pi­onship. Each Duel Tour­na­ment can take 30 to 90 min­utes depend­ing on the num­bers of play­ers and match length.

You don’t have to reg­is­ter to play a Duel Tour­na­ment. It’s like a reg­u­lar match­mak­ing game that you select in the World Map. You may have to wait for play­ers to join, which could take a lit­tle bit longer than usu­al because of the length of match­es.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, this Pub­lic Test is only for PC play­ers. There is good rea­son for this. PC has no approval process, where the con­soles do. This lim­its what they can do with their game in a time­ly fash­ion (approval process­es are crap).  

Any PC play­er who want to try the Ranked Duel Tour­na­ments, just access the game through Uplay from 12:00 AM UTC Time/5:00 PM PT on June 22 to be eli­gi­ble to join the Pub­lic Test.
