ArenaNet has announced that Guild Wars 2‘s World vs. World Fall Tournament will begin this September, shortly after the September Feature Pack goes live.

The tournament will begin on September 12 and, unlike last time, will only last four weeks, to “ensure that worlds will not be repeatedly matched against one another.” Also, the usual World vs. World lockout duration will be removed during the tournament to allow players the opportunity move around.

Achievements will also be tweaked slightly: “For the fall tournament, participating players will earn a weekly achievement based on completing a small number of events in World vs. World,” the developer wrote. “This differs a bit from previous tournament achievements in which players were required to complete several of each event, such as capturing keeps and supply camps.

“We wanted to experiment with a simplified version of the achievements to encourage players to focus more on playing WvW, rather than checking off an objective checklist. Siege objectives, defend your land, and you’ll be rewarded! Complete all four weekly achievements to unlock the meta-achievement and earn this tournament’s title, “Mist Treader”!”

Finally, instead of handing out rewards at the end of the tournament like last time, this time round rewards will be dished out at the end of each week. You can find more details here.
