Awarded for[edit]

Victory in any multiplayer battle (as a part of a DC sanctioned competition) whether on the ground or in the air. The Cluster of Fire awards excellence in the arts of multiplayer combat. It symbolizes the heat of the fire that battle skills are forged in, and the color of the flame denotes your skill in battle.

Requirements for the respective DB approved gaming platforms[edit]

You need to be on the winning ream of a PvP match.

In addition to that you need to be:

  • the Top 1 placed player according to your score (or EFF, or what ever the game calls it) in matches with 3 or fewer players on each team
  • among the Top 2 placed players according to your score in matches with 4 or 5 players in each team
  • among the Top 3 placed players according to your score in matches with 6 or more players in each team

In cases where there are more than one player with the same score, the placements among the Top 2 or Top 3 will be determined as in sports events.

Here some examples of what that means for CoF: A, B, C, D and E are members of the winning team in a PvP match. A has a score of 1,000, B and C both have a score of 900, D has 850 and E 800. This means that A is on first place, B and C share place 2, D is on place 4 and E on place 5 for his team. If A, B or C were all DB members, only A might get a CoF for this match. In this case A, B and C would be eligible for a CoF.

If there was an additional player F on that team with a score of 1,000, just like A, the situation would be as follows, A and F would share the first place, B and C would share the third place, D would be on fifth place and E would end up being on sixth place. If A, B, C and F would be DB members, all 4 would be eligible for a CoF.
