Sorare — New SO5 Tournament details: Everything you need to know to plan ahead!

A Brief History of SO5

SO5 is the first game that can be played with Sorare Limited Edition Collectibles.

Each player has a defined maximum supply of cards each season

Why the need for improvements?

With the game now already celebrating 7 months young, there is more diversity than ever before in terms of the Player Cards in-game ‘Power’ and the age of the Sorare Managers who collect and compete with them.

NEW SO5 Leagues & Divisions

After the next update, Managers will be able to compete and use their Player Cards in the following SO5 Leagues:

NEW SO5 Entry Rules

In addition to re-balancing the SO5 tournament structure, there will also be the following changes to entry and eligibility:

  • Managers will be able to enter 1 team per Division with the exception of the Developmental League which will allow for unlimited team entries.
  • Each Division will have an upper Multiplier (limit) on the strength of the team you can enter, allowing managers the freedom to create teams that combine different scarcities and different powers of playing cards

NEW Divisional Multipliers

I’ll go into more detail about ‘Multipliers’ in a future article when I have more knowledge of exactly how these will work, however, my initial understanding is that each Division will have an upper limit value which corresponds to the collective ‘Power’ of the players you can select in your team.

A Rare Sebastien Haller card that currently has a Power rating of 1.26
  • Team A: 1 Unique, 3 Super Rares + 1 Rare card
  • Team B: 5 Super Rares
  • Team C: 2 Uniques + 3 Rare cards

NEW Progressive Prize Structures

After revising the entry eligibility to 1 team per Division, per Manager and creating the Divisions so that Managers of similar strengths battle more closely together, it is expected that we’ll see more and more Sorare Managers in amongst the prizes!

  • Each Division will have a progressive prize structure that will initially be unlocked when a Tournament has 10 or more entrants.
  • Increased prize pools and additional winners will be created as Divisions grow and trigger higher entry thresholds.
  • New Prizes such as ‘XP Boosts’ can be won to help your players Level up and increase their in-game ‘Power’ faster.
I’m going to need to find these guys a team-mate if they are going to compete in the U21 League!

Is it too early to say where SO5 goes next?

Nicolas made it clear earlier in the month that further tournaments will be added as more and more Managers join Sorare.

Summary

If you have evaluated the above in a similar way to myself, I would expect you to now undertake a review of your Player Card Collection to plan for the upcoming changes (expected mid-October)
