About caclulations[edit]

Final score was 6.153. It may be possible that end reward is based on wins + score total. Kyrickell (User Talk | contribs) Comment based on this entry:1.

My own theory, is that somehow the additional reward point system is bugged and that it depends on how many in total people participate with the tournament. I noticed this during GvG. GvG is usually on 1 page only, than the additional reward point system works. One time we got additional reward points when we shouldn't get them, at that moment there were a lot of participants in the GvG tourney and there were 2 pages for the GvG tournament. For example you get 6 pages of people in HvH. That makes 6*64 people=384 people. 25% of 384 = 96. And than the bug starts working, because every page has 64 people they all get additional reward points. I am not sure if what I stated is correct, it is just my theorie.

I think the formulas need some work still. My friend came in like near last because he was doing horrible and was new to Hero Battles but got 1 point anyways.--§ Eloc § 17:31, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
I put some new calculation on the page, maybe this explains his 1 point. --Jurrit 17:49, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Should there be other ways to gain TRP?[edit]

Not sure if this is the place to whine, but it currently looks extremely difficult to get reward points. There's only a small niche of PvPers that do HB competitively, and many people wouldn't want to leave their guilds to do GvG. Maybe add another way to unlock PvP skins, such as balthazar faction. 220.101.137.117 11:27, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Currently this is the only way. Well, I don't do HB because I find it way too boring because a whole butt of reasons, GvG tourney you need people online at a certain hour everyday, broken builds, no objectives and too much of a hassle so I find it easier to get new skins on my PvE. That's my reason for not doing both of them, maybe others share same thought.--ShadowFog 11:56, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Additional reward points research (old)[edit]

This research is old and based upon the old ladder system where there was a maximum of 64 players for HvH and 32 for GvG this how now changed. Arenanet has also released the formula for calculating the additional reward points. There is still something strange with the calculation, but for more information about this at the article page.

Inconsistency in article[edit]

"In daily GvG tournaments, a guild is rewarded 3 points for each win." is what the article says right now, but the table says 2. Which is it?--Xapti 21:54, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Tourney Reward Points Issues[edit]

moved from User talk:Gaile Gray

First off, I'd like to wish you a happy holiday season! Anyways, I, and many others, are having problems receiving our Tournament Reward Points. I should have earned 75 points, but the NPC won't give me any. I've earned points before on this account, so I'm sure the email addresses are the same.There's been a case or two of people getting points when they didn't even predict anything! (See http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10234870 ). Is there any possibility of a fix for this soon? Sora267 16:13, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Ah so I'm not the only 1. I should get some points, don't know how much atm, but instead he's saying Greetings from the Xunlai Tournament House. Have you made your predictions for the latest monthly tournaments yet? Anyone can play. Join the fun and earn reward points for your prognosticative prowess. MageMontu 18:57, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
He says the same for me though I did bet in december :( Jaxom 21:27, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
That's what he says for me. I predicted in December, the day or two before predictions were over. Edit: Whoops, forgot to sign. Sora267 22:17, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Hello, and thank you for your patience. We have looked into this problem and there definitely is a bug. A fix has been coded, and it will be rolled out in a Live Build very soon. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 23:33, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
NP Gaile and thnx for listening ^^. Happy Holidays to you and the rest of Anet team and their families. MageMontu 23:37, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the reports, and the kind greetings. :) -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 00:18, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Thanks alot, Gaile! Happy Holidays! Sora267 01:33, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
Checking back -- did the live build fix this issue for you guys? -- Gaile User gaile 2.png 20:14, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Yeap it worked. I got 75 points (didn't do that good unfortunately). Zaishen Chest here I come. MageMontu 22:03, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Oh and thnx again. MageMontu 22:05, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
I can't get my points, but its April 29, 2008 now, and guildwars.com said they would be available on April 28, so I'm confused. --Risus 21:49, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

I didnt get my points today... But they're out. This "fix" is out RIGHT? I be needin my points badly. 98.203.1.218 22:01, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I still haven't gotten my points for the April Tournament and its June 7th, is it just delayed after the tournament or what? Firil Srein 15:58, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Got the same problem here, haven't recieved any points for May yet, guess is it's still bugged. 86.52.205.91 16:17, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

FP FTL![edit]

First-person? Seriously? Someone should get rid of the 'I's and the 'you's. 17:27, 28 December 2007 (UTC) --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:85.97.0.129 .

Be my guest to re-write it. --Jurrit 12:34, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

removed calculation marked as incorrect.[edit]

The calculation below had been marked as incorrect. As such I don't think it really wants to be on the main page anymore. I'm putting it here, in case it turned out to be right after all. Sadie2k 19:19, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Calculation 1 (incorrect)[edit]

  • 342 people divided over 3 pages, ended 13th of the 114 people with 5 wins and 2 losses
  • Number of winners (25% of 114) = 29
  • rank of each winner = 13
  • maximum tournament reward points = 20

Tournament reward point equation4.png


You will receive 12+5+5=22 tournament reward points.

I think the current formula is pretty wrong too. It seems to subtract the position within a group (13th of 114) from the amount of total winners (25% of 342, not 114). I don't think it makes much sense, because then you could end up say 70th of 114, well out of the top quarter, and according to the formula still receive RPs which I don't think is the case. I'm thinking that also because the last daily I took part in, I ended up 14th of about 70-80 competitors and got 1 bonus RP. Sorry that I can't test further ATM but that should be looked into. --151.64.25.81 18:55, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

4500 TRP per 1st place is too much[edit]

You need 20 Basic armor to get access to Fancy armor, that is 1000 TRP. Then there are 3500 TRP left to get Fancy armor: That are 70 pieces of Fancy armor! Or 17.5 pieces of Obsidian! Or 46.6 pieces of Luxon, Kurzick or Vaabian! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:84.56.232.23 .

4500 TRP = 900 ZKeys, which you could sell for over 4 million gold. If you can win the monthlies, you deserve a reward. 79.67.90.125 02:07, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
I thought it was 50 pieces of basic armour before you could purchase fancy armour? -- Salome User salome sig.png 01:11, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Well I got some Primeval armor pieces, and I had only gotten TRP's for the first time. Purchased a Legendary Sword, Elite Canthan Warrior (Set), and a Primeval Helm...all in what makes the 50 armor/weapon purchases to get the Fancy/Exotic items strange in all terms. Captain Armin 02:28, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

To OP; the reward points are in place for thousands of dollars of real life prizes that you used to get. Unfortunately, ANet's terrible business design on this game prevents them from continually supporting it with prizes, so they halfassed a reward point system in so a single pvp char can get shiny equipment. If you think it's an easy thing to win a monthly, try doing it yourself. That shit is well-earned. -User Auron csig.png Auron 02:30, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Getting the 80th place in a monthly GvG tournament with 100 participating guilds nets you 945 rps.

Still having Reward Point issues.[edit]

Two accounts have done the predictions through the Xunlai Tournament House. Same exact picks on both accounts. Account #1 receives the 80 points no problem, while account #2 still hasn't received any whatsoever. What gives? I double checked the information for the account e-mail on the second account and I'm 100% sure it's correct. And yet, Account #2 still hasn't gotten it's points. Demy 04:02, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

See this. Dominator Matrix 04:05, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
I get it, so I'll get my points next month on top of my sept. prediction points. Thanks! Looked all over for something about ti and couldn't find it. :S Demy 05:32, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

GvG reward points[edit]

So you get 4500 for winning a monthly? is that per team, per person in the team or per person in the guild? (Pointless me asking I'm never gna get it, but a bit of optimism never hurts) Lt Death 02:30, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Every person receives that many. 90.202.225.94 00:14, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Every person on the team in the first round match. If members of the team swap out their RPs are reduced slightly, and if someone swaps in who wasn't in the original 8 they get only a few RPs. -User Auron csig.png Auron 01:33, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Byes And Forfeits[edit]

If your opponment forfeits do you still get Reward Points? Same for a bye? --Wingsy 00:25, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

TRP Balance[edit]

Is there any way to check how many TRP you currently have on your account available for spending? It should be fairly obvious, but I can't find out how, and the article doesn't say how either. Thanks. Xapheus 22:51, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Press "H" in-game and press the tab 'Account' (at the end of Faction + Titles). It should say your hero battles rank and rating, wins and losses and your Reward Points. --Wingsy 11:42, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Deadline[edit]

I vaguelly recall that there's a deadline for players to use up their points or they will lose those points. I cannot find any such information so either I made it up or it needs to be added. Can anybody clarify? Thanks – User Barinthus Magical Compass.png Barinthus 21:05, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm wondering the same thing. Looked around and found this. Under 1.2.3 Prizes "Note: Once you claim your Tournament Reward Points from the Xunlai Tournament Agent, they are permanent for the duration of the account. Don't know if that applies to points actually won by participating in a tourney or not. I would think so, but would like verification as well. Sardaukar 23:34, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
I believe they expire the next month. --Ellisia talk 12:12, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Source of points[edit]

This article is geared towards the actual tournament play rewards, but aren't they the same rewards that you get from the predictions at the Xunlai Tournament House? Is that documented elsewhere? Freedom Bound 22:09, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

6/18 Update[edit]

Did anyone else not get their points? Several of my friends (accounts registered with Tolkano of course) didn't get their points after submitting their PVP guesses last month. They've never had problems before. There have been a bunch of people in GTOB claiming the same thing some 12 hours after the update now.--Ninjatek 14:42, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes, as has been noted in several places, there's another "issue" with the points distribution. Contact support and create a ticket. Freedom Bound 14:45, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Tradeable?[edit]

? 194.252.105.51 13:15, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

No, but some of the items you can receive for them are (most notably Zaishen Keys), see the Tolkano article for details. -- FreedomBoundUser Freedom Bound Sig.png 13:16, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

October 22nd, 2009 update.[edit]

Now that the HB's been removed should this article be editted so it'd be relevant? - Reanimated X 13:24, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Any[edit]

one selling? would buy @ 1.200 per point ^^ --I Unhealable I 16:41, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
