Ruination: 'The Upheaval is a round-robin style league, and the fourth of the Ruination series of tournaments by KodeBreaker of Team Covenant. It took place from January 2018 to January 2019 and featured 112 robots and 27 competitors (one team was a dummy squad filled in to make an easier schedule), with 28 in each weight class, exactly double of the third tournament, Ruination: The Contagion. In total, there were 10 weeks, 7 for each season week and 3 for the play-offs, due to the tournament shortening mid-way through; it was supposed to have 16 weeks in total and 13 regular season weeks. It used three different arenas for the regular season, and solely the Battlegrounds arena for the post-season. It used its own personal ruleset, which was met with some controversy by a few members of the forum. It used the same 5 category stat spread as last tournament.

Tournament shortening and issues[edit | edit source]

Mid-way through Week 8, due to personal reasons, real-life issues, lack of writing staff, and some minor conflict with the forum as a whole, KodeBreaker cut the tournament short at 7 weeks and started the playoffs early. Even so, the tournament took a long time to complete, as after the semi-finals KodeBreaker did not return to the forum fully for some time until January of 2019, where the SHW Final was finally written by NWOWWE of Team Blood Gulch. Even so, Upheaval is recognized as an official major tournament (but why though :V).
