Survivor League FAQ
- What is Survivor League?
- The Survivor League is a tournament which takes place each month that intends to honor and preserve the top Survival of the Fittest players of said period. At the end of every qualification stage, we will be celebrating the highest-scoring players, which will be visible in real time, by both inviting them to a tournament, which will be broadcasted on twitch.tv/survivetheark, and the winners will be both declared Survivor League for that month, as well as winning cash prizes, they will be archived and forever celebrated.
- How long does each Survivor League last?
- Each Survivor League Qualifier will last approximately one calendar month. At the top of this page, there will be a visible clock which will highlight how long is left until the highest rated players are invited to the tournament and the next season begins. This page will also contain a current leaderboard which will display, in real time, the survivors who are currently top of the rankings. Keep in mind, those survivors may not be the ones who make it into the Survivor League Tournament at the end of the session, as they will need to keep their place for when the timer hits zero.
- How will the ranking system work?
- Ranks are determined by the amount of score you have in each specific game-mode. When the clock hits zero, the Top Ranking players in each of the 3 game modes, will be declared and invited to the Survivor League. Following this, the new clock will begin ticking for the next Survivor League. Ranks will not be reset after each month, unless mentioned in advance, so it is entirely possible for players to stay on the league for multiple months and participate in tournaments on a consistent basis, however a player’s score may start to decay if a player has not played for over 1 week. Ranks will not be reset after each month has been awarded so it is entirely possible for players to stay on the league for multiple months, however a players score may start to decay if a player has not played for over 1 week.

If a tribe does not have the maximum number of players, they will not receive the extra prize-pool. It is recommended that for these Tournaments, you are in a full-sized tribe to ensure that you have the opportunity to win the largest amount of prize available. A three-player tribe will not receive an extra $3500 for placing first.
These prizes will be allocated accordingly to all members of the Survivor League for that month. Survivor League members will also be archived and celebrated throughout the game in the Survivor League Archives and members of this exclusive and honorary league will be invited to upcoming broadcasted Tournaments, so getting into the league is not just a way to win a large amount of money and glory, but also a way to earn even more prizes and glory in the future. We are serious about the Survival of the Fittest becoming a serious competitive e-sports game and with that, want to celebrate players who are dedicated and perform to the highest standard!
