Harvard Bonin's Avatar + Posted by Harvard Bonin on Jun 30, 2010 // Senior Producer, SCEA

Calling all Warheads! Get ready for another head-to-head tournament this July 4th weekend. This time around try your skillz on the expansion pack map “Fallen Star” and in the free update mode “Collection”! (see rules below). Ten Grand Prizes will be chosen between SCEE and SCEA. These top Warheads will receive a three month subscription voucher to the new PlayStation Plus* and a Warhawk Champion’s Blade!

*Voucher can be used to extend your current service or to create a new one.

This tournament is short, so be ready to go!

And for those of you that don’t already have Fallen Star, we’ve dropped the price 75%! From June 22nd to July 6th you can pick up this explosive expansion pack for $1.99.

*You must have the full game Warhawk to play Fallen Star.

When: 5:00am Pacific, July 1 to 5:00am Pacific, July 5
Where: Warhawk Fallen Star: Collection Tourny servers (look for the blue Tourny-FallenStar # servers)
Modes: 32-player Fallen Star, Collection Mode, Team Game only
What You Need To Win: Be a part of your match’s “Winning Team” and you will get one point. You get 0 points for losses and ties.
Where To Find Your Rank: Just like last time, your stats will be posted on www.warhawk.com in the Leaderboard area. Look for the “Tourny” tab.
What You’ll Win: The top 10 players from North America and Europe will all win the fabled “Champion’s Blade.” Also, they’ll win a three-month subscription to the new PlayStation Plus subscription service.

“Collection” Rules
This gameplay mode is like multi-flag CTF. There are four energy cores scattered around the map, generally positioned in the center or between the two teams’ main bases. Each team has a Reactor where Energy Cores are taken to score points.

In the screen shot above you can see two Energy Cores positioned on a Eucadian bridge. Bringing these Cores back to your team’s reactor will score points for your team…and you can carry more than one Core at a time.

The scoring system is progressive, so if you score just one Core, your team gets just one point. Two Cores will score three points. Three Cores are good for six points…and if you manage to work as a team and bring all four Cores back to the Reactor at once, then your team scores a whopping 10 points!

As you can see in the screenshot below, the Cores are displayed on your character and the more you are carrying, the more you see whirling and orbiting around you. You’ll also see them on the mini-map as pulsing energy symbols. The score is displayed in the upper right corner as usual, but there is a new display there for Collection mode. It’s the little yellow number that shows you how many Cores your team currently is currently carrying. This ends up being critical for knowing where your focus should be — offense or defense.

…and you can press the Triangle button to throw the Cores you are carrying! Passing Cores among your team is “super-effective.”

Just checking, with PS+ users do we get to keep addons for like WarHawk forever even without a subscription? The terms on the psstore seems as if we lose a addon after the subscription is up.

Great tournament here. To bad I’ve been away from Warhawk so long, just wouldn’t be worth the time to come back. Nice to see the game still gets great attention tho, was an excellent game.

Loved this game back in the day, glad to see this stuff is going on. The only thing I never liked about it was the laggy feeling controls.

Think I’ll pop the disk in my PS3 for this weekend, its been a while.

@4,11 Yea Double or even Triple XP weekends woulda been awesome for this game. The leveling system is insane, I played it on and off for like a year and never got very highly ranked because half the servers didnt add to our XP and the other half barely added to it.

+ DarkAkatosh on June 30th, 2010 at 9:58 am said:

This sucks. All this is going to do is encourage rampant clan stacking and team switching, way to not think things through again. On the bright side, maybe collection will become more popular after this tournament…

I would love to here about some StarHawk already!

+ chemicalgroom on June 30th, 2010 at 10:22 am said:

Thank you! This is a much better set up than the last tournament. The one thing that you should consider is disabling team switching (while leaving team-balancing and randomization “on”). That will prevent players from stacking one side for the benefit of friends/clanmates and make everyone play the hand that they are dealt. I assume that points will follow winning ribbons in any event; i.e. you can’t get an individual “win” if you switch teams regardless.

Any benefits for us PS+ people lol.

Do we get a lame blade for participation like last time? If not, I doubt I’ll get in to the top ten on something as competitive as Warhawk, where the hardcore are going to squeeze as many games as possible in.

Warhawk 2? Or Starhawk?

+ Blkant on June 30th, 2010 at 11:26 am said:

I gave up, and quit playing this because your ranking system is completely unfair to those of us who work/go to college etc… Its asinine.

Warhawk is video game genius. Best PS3 game. Can’t wait for Starhawk. Go blue.

+ Aspherex on June 30th, 2010 at 4:53 pm said:

Remember, idiots who don’t want to share cores – if you pass a core to someone else with a core, not only does your team get 3 points instead of 2, but BOTH players get 3 points each instead of 1. So there really is NO reason to be an arsehole and not share. Sharing cores = more points for you AND more points for your team.

Nice, I will have to boot up Warhawk for the first time in a while

CEREMONIAL BLADES!!!…PLEASE! I been after once since the day I got a PS3 dammit! >:(

+ ugly_thing on June 30th, 2010 at 9:15 pm said:

These competitions are so unfair.

People like me who work have no chance at all for the blade against those lunatics without a life/job/school who can play ALL DAY long to get points while im only able to play a few hours a day IF im home.
