The Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier President’s Cup begins

The Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier President's Cup has begun, and everyone with a competitve streak is encouraged to take part

Three Final Fantasy: First Soldier characters heading into battle

Listen up, soldiers. It’s time to grab your weapons, materia, and go to war in the Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier President’s Cup. Of course, only the best of the best will survive, but anybody can take part, so long as you participate in ranked matches for the duration of the event.

The FFVII: The First Soldier President’s Cup encourages competitive play, so if you think you have the chops to lay waste to your foes on the battlefield, jump into some ranked matches today. When it comes to the rules, there are two different types of rankings, the first is for kills, and the second is for the quickest win.

Essentially, victory doesn’t matter so much when it comes to your kill ranking. So, even if you lose the match, as long as you prioritise ending the enemy and snagging the most kills, you can still have the highest kill ranking. The number of opponents you eliminate in a single game determines your rank. Naturally, a higher number means your rank increases.

When it comes to rankings for the quickest win, it’s determined by (you guessed it) how quickly you can end the game. The less time it takes to win, the better your rank becomes. This also applies to those competing as a team.
