Sit and Go Tournaments

Sit and Go Tournaments are a new feature on ZED RUN where users participate in tournaments on-demand. Unlike classic ZED RUN tournaments, which require players to qualify over a number of races, Sit and Gos allow players to guarantee entry by paying a fee. This means players can enjoy the excitement of ZED RUN tournaments more often, without the frustration of not qualifying despite racing many times.

Benefits of Sit and Go Tournaments

Faster Levelling: With the XP multipliers on offer (which are front-loaded to the first round to benefit all entrants), levelling through Sit and Go tournaments will be faster than traditional paid racing.
More Opportunities to Race: Embrace the thrill of racing in more tournaments, more often. No more repetitive qualification rounds.
Guaranteed Entry: Lock in your spot with confidence. Once you’ve paid the buy-in fee, your entry is guaranteed, no more worries about missing out.
Bigger Prize Pools: Brace yourself for adrenaline-pumping showdowns, giving you the opportunity to win big.

FAQS

Is the racing fee % on Sit and Go tournaments different from that on normal paid races?
No, these fees are still 10% with a 50/50 split between the treasury and VHS
Can stable owners and/or content creators create custom Sit and Go tournaments?
No, not during the initial and secondary launch stages.
What does Sit and Go tournament segmentation look like?
Initially, there won’t be any segmentation. Our secondary launch will target Class 1 level segments, and then, following on from the release, specific conditions for activation based on anticipated volume/value.
Do you earn XP from Sit and Go tournaments?
Yes, you will earn stable XP and racehorse XP from every race in a Sit and Go tournament. Additionally, Sit and Go tournaments provide significant base racehorse XP increases when compared to normal paid racing. Exact breakdowns of XP per position will be available on all individual tournament overview pages. 25% of the total displayed XP will go to the stable owner in the form of Stable XP.
Can I enter Sit and Go tournaments with a borrowed racehorse?
Unfortunately, you cannot enter a borrowed racehorse into Sit and Go tournaments.
How will Sit and Go tournaments impact weekly tournaments?
Once Sit n Go tournaments have been successfully released, Weekly Premier qualifying races will move to a 12-horse, top 3 format. The prize pools per class will remain the same, but tournament sizes and fee tiers will be rebalanced. The XP multipliers for each tournament will also be decreased, given the boosted XP available from Sit and Go tournaments.
