The Guild Wars World Championship (GWWC) was a series of tournament events sponsored by ArenaNet for the title of World Champion. Guilds from all territories participated by playing GvG-Battles followed by special territorial play-off events and the World Championship Finals.

Format[edit | edit source]

The qualification process took place in each territory separately. The qualifying season began on October 1st, 2005, with a reset of the guild ladder. After three months, at December 31st, 2005, the top twelve ranked teams were to qualify for the regional play-offs of their territory. However, the number of teams actually entering the regional play-offs were only ten for Europe, ten for North America, and six for Korea.

At the end of the playoffs, the top two teams qualified to the Guild Wars World Championship Finals. The finals took place from February 17th to February 19th, 2006, in Taipei, Taiwan.

In addition, two guest teams, one from Taiwan and one from Hong Kong, played in an exhibition match. The winner was to face the newly crowned World Champion in the Taipei Challenge.

Prizes[edit | edit source]

The Championship Trophy in the Great Temple of Balthazar
  • First place: 50,000 USD
  • Second place: 25,000 USD
  • Third and Fourth place: 10,000 USD
  • Fifth and Sixth place: 2,500 USD

In addition, if the Taiwanese team had won the Taipei Challenge, NCTaiwan would have provided them with 10,000 USD prize money.

The Guild Wars World Champion and the guilds lineup are immortalized by the Prophecies Championship Trophy in the Great Temple of Balthazar.
