Ultros League Season 5 (Oct 2023-)
Season 5 Announcement
If you played Ultros League in previous seasons, you already know all the basics: 8 weeks, 4 tiers of competition, the strongest finishers get promoted to higher tiers while the lowest finishes risk demotion. If you’re new or looking for a refresher, check out the full rules and info right here.

Ultros League Season 5 will be the first major event in WC to run on the new 1.4 version of the randomizer. With a new version comes new flags! As with previous seasons, the goal of Ultros League is to provide a “standard” racing experience. To that end, we’ve made a few tweaks (and implemented some of the new flags) to refine that experience and provide an even more consistent, balanced race flagset.

At a high level, we’ve made the following changes from season 4:

   Objectives: Unlock KT Skip -> Complete any 1 of: Recruit 9 characters, Find 12 espers, Complete 21 checks (was Complete any 1 of: Recruit 9 characters, Find 12 espers)
   Magic: Ultima – Expensive Ultima (254 MP) (was No Ultima)
   Magic: Espers – Learn Rates Random Tiered (new flag!)
   Items: Cursed Shield Battles – 6-14 (was 3-14)
   Items: Shops – Expensive Super Balls set to False (was True)
   Items: Shops – No Super Balls set to True (was False)
   Items: Shops – No Exp. Eggs set to True (was False)
   Items: Shops – No Illuminas set to True (was False)
   Items: Coliseum Visible Rewards 100-120 (was 80-100)
   Gameplay: Item Rewards – Possible Item Rewards: ValiantKnife, Illumina, Ragnarok, Atma Weapon, Fixed Dice, Flame Shld, Ice Shld, Thunder Shld, Minerva, Genji Glove, Offering, Exp. Egg, Snow Muffler, Cat Hood, Dragon Horn, BehemothSuit, Aura Lance, Force Shld, Force Armor (new flag!)

There have been no other changes to the flags – scaling, character/esper requirements, stats, and everything else related to game mechanics is just the way you remember from previous seasons.

The revised flags are available on the Info and Rules page, or check out this news post for even more details on what changed and why the changes were made. SeedBot’s ultros league preset has been updated on both the web and Discord bot. Start rolling your practice seeds now and enjoy seeds with more Ultima and less Genji Helm!

Battlegrounds (Aug-Oct 2023)
Event Results
To war! To war! The fate of the world of Final Fantasy VI hangs in the balance! Join the fight in our newest event campaign: Worlds Collide: Battlegrounds!

In Battlegrounds, some combatants fight for world order as mighty soldiers of the Gestahlian Empire, while others rise up to resist the imperial march as courageous Returners. Each week, both sides clash to determine who will control regions of the world, from the snowy rebellion’s base in Narshe all the way to the heart of the imperial war machine in Vector. Will you heed the call and rise up to be a hero of this conflict?

Earn points for your side or grab glory for yourself! Who will sit atop the mountain when the victor of this balance of power is crowned? Choose any of three active battlegrounds per week to claim it for your faction, charging your way to the enemy base and earn personal accolades in duels and skirmishes along the way. The side with the lowest average time wins and the highest point-earners will be anointed! And fear not, conscientious objectors, you can be rewarded for helping the cause, too!

Event rules:

Registration: Saturday, July 22 - Sunday, August 20
Uprising: Sunday, August 13 to Sunday, August 20
Battlegrounds Main Event: Weekly races from Sunday, August 20 to Sunday, October 29 (or earlier if one faction achieves victory before the end date)

Good luck, and we’ll see you on the Battlegrounds!

Ultros League Season 4 (Jun-Aug 2023)
Season 4 Announcement
If you played Ultros League in previous seasons, you already know all the basics: 8 weeks, 4 tiers of competition, the strongest finishers get promoted to higher tiers while the lowest finishes risk demotion. If you’re new or looking for a refresher, check out the full rules and info right here.

With a new season also comes a new version: Worlds Collide version 1.3 is releasing soon and Ultros League will be the first event to feature the new version. This version features a number of bugfixes and quality of life improvements, including a change to Ebot’s Rock to boost the odds of getting to the hungry chest after acquiring enough coral, as well as a boost to monsters/bosses casting healing magic on themselves.The majority of changes are fairly small (no new checks this time!) but a few will have an impact on Ultros League, so make sure to check out the updates on this Discord post.

Blackjack Battle Royale (Apr-Jun 2023)
Blackjack Draft Flagset Options
Winner: FalconHit
Runner-Up: peroquenariz

The next big FF6 Worlds Collide event is almost here! You are cordially invited to join us aboard the Blackjack for a winner-take-all FF6 Worlds Collide racing extravaganza! In the Blackjack Battle Royale, competitors face off in weekly races where the slowest racers get eliminated. But there’s a catch - before every week, the racers will be drawing from the Blackjack deck to change their flagsets. Every week, the seed will shift into a new, unique flagset, meaning no two groups and no two seeds will ever be the same!

It’s our most unique event yet, and only one person will survive until the end. Registration for the event will open up in a week, so get ready to toss your chip in the pile and take a chance to win it all! In the mean time, come on over to the #bbr-general-chat channel in the Discord to discuss all things Blackjack Battle Royale.

Ultros League Season 3 (Jan-Mar 2023)
Season 3 Announcement
Sign-up Sheet
Ultros League is an ongoing series of async races designed to offer players of all skill levels an opportunity to compete in a fun race environment. Players in this league are seeded into different divisions, roughly by skill level, where they compete in week-long standard race asyncs against the other racers in that division. At the end of the season, top performers in each division get promoted to the next tier, while the lowest racers get relegated down one tier. Seasons run for 8 weeks, with breaks between each season. Please check out the links above for full rules, schedule, and sign-up info!

The Coliseum II (Nov 2022-Feb 2023)
Winner: FalconHit
Runner Up: zen0bian
Full Details: Info, Rules, Flagsets
Sign-up Form
The Coliseum is a festival of Worlds Collide racing featuring not just one, not two, but three events!

The Grand Melee: To begin the event, all entrants will gather on the floor of the Coliseum for a single week-long free-for-all async race. The best 32 times in this race will advance to the main event to fight for ultimate glory, while the remaining combatants will fight for survival instead in a different contest.

The Coliseum: For the main event, the top 32 finishers from the Grand Melee will be randomly seeded into a double elimination tournament bracket of weekly 1v1 sync races. Each week of the tournament, the gladiators will arm themselves with that week’s flagset, chosen from an armory of tournament flagsets specially procured by the Coliseum staff for this event. Each 1v1 match will play a unique seed from that week’s chosen flagset.

As this is a double elimination tournament, gladiators will not be eliminated until they have suffered two defeats. This includes the finals: the winner of the loser’s bracket will have to claim victory over the undefeated champion of the winner’s bracket twice in order to be crowned the Grand Champion and forever earn the Coliseum Champion role in the WC Discord.

This is a new Worlds Collide challenge in a bracket-style, double-elimination, 1v1 tournament! Gladiators will face off against an opponent each round in what I’m calling a semi-synchronous race.

Winner advances, loser goes to the loser's bracket for one last chance at victory! Races will be restreamed on the FF6 Worlds Collide Twitch channel.
