Murderbrawl Funtime Edit
Murderbrawl Funtime had a classic format of a 2v2 round robin tournament, but teams played against each other three matches per set – one Deathmatch, one King of the Hill and one VIP match. Another uniqueness of this tournament was a fact that teams could only use each type of ship once during a match set. Winners were decided based on a point system.
|1st place||Dmitrij's Angels|
|2nd place||Team Bumble Merc. Corp.|
|3rd place||The Mad Hatters|
The Big Brass Revival Edit
Big Brass Revival was a 2v2 tournament with eight players per team. The tournament used a Double Elimination format as well as a Best of 3 – thus one match in a classic Double Elimination was represented by a set of three matches in this tournament. The tournament was hosted by Muse and alongside other rewards it was the first tournament to feature cash prizes ($350 total).
|1st place||Fancy Cloud Dancers|
|2nd place||Chef Xedeon's Potatoes au Gratin|

Cake's Unbirthday Tournament 2016 Edit
The Unbirthday Tournament is an annual event hosted and run by the Cake Clan. The tournament stretched over the course of five weeks and employed the Round Robin format. Teams consisted of four players – one ship and they were sorted into two divisions based on levels to allow equal chance of success for players of all skill levels. Teams did not have to participate in every week of the tournament. Every week there was a different sets of match rules/gamemode. Winners were decided based on a point system.
|1st place||Storm Facepaw|
|2nd place||Team Eclipse|

7 Deady Ships Edit
Seven Deadly Ships was a 2v2 7 week long tournament, where every week only one type of ship was allowed to be played by the teams – Pyramidion, Goldfish, Squid, Galleon, Junker, Spire, and Mobula respectably. Winners were decided based on a point system. Teams announced their loadouts beforehand to the organizers and their loadouts were ranked and divided into tiers depending on the chosen weapons – the more impractical the ship was, the more points would the team get for a win.
|1st place||Storm Ryders|
|2nd place||Predator Island|
|3rd place||Fancy Maenad Ryders|
Cronus League Edit
Cronus League was a ten week long single ship tournament featuring a point system for scoring. Every week two 4-player teams were paired using the high-low setup depending on their points, thus the team with the highest amount of points was paired up with the team that had the lowest amount and so on. Teams started with 1000 points and upon a win they received a percentage of the enemies' points. Therefore beating a higher ranking team was worth more points and vice versa. Matches were either 2v2 Deathmatch or 2v2 King of the Hill. The finale used Double Round Robin format.
|2nd place||Team Predators|
TimmyB Tournament: Season 2 Edit
TimmyB Tournament is a six week long single ship event featuring a point system and different gamemode with special rules every week – spanning from standard Deathmatch to Demolition Derby and Galleon Races. This event was aimed at players of all skill levels offering alternative to the competitive scene. During the event random bonus points were awarded to the teams for various feats, such as great ramkills, arriving early and wearing pimped costumes.
The tournament was designed by TimmyB who unfortunately passed away before its completion and thus the event is run by his friends he made in the Guns of Icarus community in his name.
|1st place||Crepe Crepe|
|2nd place||Anglean Gym|
|3rd place||Brick's Tsundere Waifus|
Aerodrome 3: The Mercantile War Edit
Aerodrome is recurring tournament featuring five week long single ship gameplay using modified VIP gamemode called Cargo Carrier in the 3v3 format. The Cargo Carrier is different in that the VIP status is passed onto the ship, that killed the previous VIP. The tournament employed a point system and sign-ups were available every week. Sign-ups were in the form of buying a contract – either trading contract, therefore starting with the cargo and being the VIP or a rival contract, where your goal is to hunt the cargo.
A notable characteristic of the Aerodrome tournaments is that they are accompanied by a background story complete with narration – available on youtube.
