Any actions you take in Killzone Shadow Fall online from that point on will contribute towards your team’s overall performance.

The cut-off date for the Signup Stage is June 17, so don’t wait too long! On June 18, we’ll announce which Guerrilla developers are going to act as team captains.
Name: The Autarchs
Team Captain: Stuart Billinghurst, Senior Designer
Description: The Autarchs are a strong and venerated team, notorious for their dominating style on the battlefield. They will seize control of the match early on and deny their opponents any opportunity to retaliate.
Name: The Marshals
Team Captain: Victor Zuylen, Community Editor
Description: Masters of stealth and speed, the Marshals excel at catching the enemy unaware and unprepared. They’re intimately familiar with the shortcuts and hiding places on every map and will not hesitate to take advantage of them.
Name: The Tyrants
Team Captain: Poria Torkan, Producer
Description: The Tyrants have a well-deserved reputation for recklessness and extreme violence. They will overwhelm their opponents through sheer aggression, often with little regard for tactics or their own well-being.
Name: SFC New Helghan
Team Captain: Jeroen Roding, Community Manager
Description: A young team with formidable defensive capabilities, SFC New Helghan has become highly adept at stonewalling enemy attacks. Once they have a territory on the map locked down, nothing can get past them.
Name: Real Madec
Team Captain: Daniel Faustino, Producer
Description: Real Madec is renowned for its complex strategies and unmatched tactical skills. Disciplined and experienced, they take pleasure in soundly schooling their opponents at every opportunity.
Name: Vekta United
Team Captain: Samrat Sharma, Senior Online Producer
Description: A fun, friendly team emphasizing sportsmanship and camaraderie, Vekta United is in it purely for the love of the game. They will appreciate a good game regardless of whether they win or lose – although they usually win.

In the Signup Stage, you can register your team choice (and your participation in the Killzone Shadow Fall World Challenge) by posting the name of your preferred team in this thread.
June 19 – July 7: Challenge Stage
There are three challenges in the Challenge Stage. For each challenge, teams from Group A will be matched up against teams from Group B, to compete for the highest combined average of the specified action (such as most kills per hour). The teams that win these matchups earn points based on their own Group ranking for said challenge. Scoring is as follows:
In addition, the official Killzone Facebook and Twitter channels will regularly post messages from opposing team captains during this stage. The team captain that receives the most likes or retweets within 24 hours will earn 1 point, to be added to their team’s total score.
At the end of the Challenge Stage, the three teams with the highest total number of points advance to the Finals Stage, where they will be joined by a ‘wild card’ team. The qualifying teams, and the identity of this new team, will be announced on July 10.
Challenge 1 (June 19 – June 23): Most Kills/Hour

JULY 18 – 25: FINALS STAGE / INTERCEPT CHALLENGE
In the week before the Finals Stage, the captains of the three remaining teams will personally select players from their own teams to fight alongside them in the live semifinals and finals. The teams will not only have to face each other in battle, but also take on a mysterious fourth team!
Running in parallel with the Finals Stage, the Intercept Challenge is a separate live challenge in which the teams eliminated from the World Challenge can redeem themselves by getting the most points in the shortest amount of time in Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept. We’ll have more on the Finals Stage and the Intercept Challenge on July 10.
