There seems to be a flag-switching function in the settings but I'm not entirely sure what that does.

In the current system, you can do ONE flag change freely, then you need assistance from customer care.
Many people use permanent USA for more tokens and stuff. Also I know about people who hopped and stole a country limited car then begged flag back from CC.

In the old system you could change flag as many times as you wanted which resulted in mass exploitation and robbing country limited events.

I find this tournament really interesting, I certainly don't think of winning because I'm a top 100 player and not a top 10 player, but I think it's a great news after the last changes to the game that have made car upgrading almost impossible!
Vehicles 240/241, 237 max pro

Stars 2445/2515

Patents 7685/7500

Helmets 1175/1595

I hate the new Showdown game mode  :')

I love Asphalt 8: Airborne  p)

See, I'm the opposite. I'm not a top player and I'll be out after the first race. 0% chance of advancing. So, really, I might as well have been in one of the excluded countries. This tournament is not really interesting to me at all. Actually, watching YouTube videos from other posters on this forum is far more interesting than this tournament.

p.s. I'm kinda bummed that really good players like @dex1 are excluded while knuckleheads like me are allowed in just because of where we live.

Exactly my thoughts. (I would give him my account data to play but IP-adresse/ios-win-issues etc. wouldn‘t work and in the end: it wouldn‘t be Dex1.) Regarding the list of included countries: it‘s the Top20 of countries with the most players and payers (and maybe also with the most hackers)! From top down to the end. This national attitude make this event completely ugly.
20 countries are not the world.

So, you're introducing a new rule? For this tournament only?

And remember, an IP address is not a reliable indicator of location. You certainly shouldn't rely upon IP to exclude anybody from the tournament, especially since you've already encouraged them to participate...

Hey there everyone,

I just wanted to add a little information regarding the change of country flags.

All participants IP's will have to correspond to that of the country their flag displays. In other words, no flag changing.

This is another step to ensure we have the fairest competition that there is ever been in Asphalt 8.

Spot on IP addresses are not allocated by country. The IANA only break them into 5 global regions which then get split to companies, ISPs etc. You can trace my dynamic IP to Ireland, UK, France & Holland within the space of 5 minutes. If I use a proxy then all bets are off.

This is a bit unfair, countries are divided into worse and better. I do not feel worse, and for the future GL will not think if it's ethical.

Hello everyone!

We are excited to announce that the Asphalt 8 Tournament - Summer 2019 edition has already started!

We will feature a set of in-game time limited events to find out which are the best 3 Asphalt 8 racers in the world (one per platform).

The Tournament starts this week (July 1st) and will last until the end of August. (Check the following calendar for more information on the Stages of the competition).

Image

Every stage will be preceded with a Training Session (Warm Up Cup ) so that you can test the track and vehicle before the real race starts.

To ensure the best skills are rewarded the different stages will have the same MAX/PRO vehicle with boosters activated. There will be no opponents on the track and neither will there be traffic. Make the best lap time and you will move on to the next stage.

On our first edition we wanted to start with our 20 strongest countries. (You can find the list of countries at the bottom) We want to make sure all the countries chosen have enough players to be a fair competition. We will look in future events if we can expand the Tournament to include other regions as well.

And with that explanation we can now go deeper on how the Qualifiers will take place. 

Each stage will have its own rewards, so make sure you try your best!

Stage 1 : Qualifer #1 / July 8th - 13th  
- Players from the 20 available countries will face against each other locally. The 100 best will move onto the next Stage.

Stage 2: Qualifier #2 / July 22nd - 27th 
- The best 100 racers from the previous stage will race between themselves to find the top 10.

Stage 3 : "Double Stage" - PlayOff Cup / Aug 5th - 10th
- 10 racers from each country will form 2 groups of 100. The groups will be mixed. On this "Double Stage" the best 100 racers will be promoted to the next league. The best 100 racers in the world. 

Stage 4: Semi-final Cup / Aug 16th - 21st
- From the 100 best racers only 10 will move to the Final.

Stage 5: Final Cup / Aug 27th - Sep 1st
- Everything comes down to this week. Unlimited energy, don't wait for refills. Play as much as you can and become World Champion.

For reaching the top 10 of the world, all racers will get 500 tokens on this stage.

We would also like to share the prizes for the winners of the last stage.

On 3rd place: Unlock the Lamborghini Centenario 
On 2nd position: Same reward as 3rd place + 1000 tokens.
And for the World Champion on 1st place: Previous rewards + 5.000.000 Credits.

The winners will also be featured on our website's Hall of Fame (Coming soon)

Each stage will count with its own recap video, our Summer Tournament Journals where we will release information about each stage's leaderboard, the upcoming track and vehicle of each stage and even some tips to improve your times, so make sure you suscribe to our channel for more! You can catch the first episode here: https://youtu.be/9iJ2wdZZgag

Image


On this edition there will only be one winner per platform. So it's thrice the possibilities.

And that's all for our announcement so far. Keep posted to our channels for more fresh info. And throw some questions that you might have regarding this competition into the #SummerTournament channel on our Discord server https://discordapp.com/invite/asphalt8 We will do the best we can to answer them. 

See you on the track!


* The full list of countries that will participate in this event is the following:

China
US
Japan
Russian Federation
Vietnam
Turkey
France
Mexico
UK
Germany
India
Saudi Arabia
Canada
Italy
Thailand
Australia
Brazil
Philippines
Spain
Ukraine

only 5 countries from eu? so, if you are from other country, u did not see this "big" tournament? thats the most stupidest idea ive ever seen. and c'mon "And for the World Champion on 1st place: Previous rewards + 5.000.000 Credits." .. 5 mln credits? wow!! i can farm 10 mln credits in some hours lol. You should give real money, not virtual stuff. All normal tournaments can give real money, real prizes, not useless virtual stuff. I am really disappointed. GameLoft you are so lame!

**** or X2 or something like that would be better car than that useless boat. I dont get it how did you pick so useless prizes. You should create poll or something
