Disney Speedstorm Community Pit Stop – Introducing Tournaments and Golden Pass Changes
9 avr. 2024
Race through previous seasons with Tournaments

Hey SpeedStars,

We’re back with another Community Pit Stop! Today we’re introducing an exciting new feature to Disney Speedstorm, based on the community’s valuable feedback: Tournaments. Read on to find out all about it, as well as changes coming to the Season Tour and Golden Pass starting in Season 7.

Tournaments are a way for players to access content from previous Seasons through new multi-stage Racer Tournaments and earn seasonal-themed trophies and rewards from previous Golden Passes via the new Vault Passes.

The game’s new main menu layout will now include a “World Map” button, which will take players to the current Season as well as the Tournaments.

During Season 7, Tournaments inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., Toy Story, and Disney’s Lilo & Stitch will gradually become available, and all World Tournaments will not have time limitations to complete. More Tournaments will be added at a later date.
So how do the tournaments work? Let’s take a closer look!

RACER TOURNAMENTS  

In a Tournament, each Racer from that Season has a set of Racer Tournaments. Each Racer Tournament will consist of four races for each of three difficulty-based Cups. Players can play any tournament for the Racers they have unlocked. 

For example, if players have Racer Mike Wazowski unlocked, they can start racing in his specific Racer Tournaments inside the Monsters, Inc. Tournaments.

In each Racer Tournament, players will earn Vault Points and Trophies based on their placement. Players must place at least in third to start earning points and Trophies. The three Tournaments break down as follows:

  • Novice Cup, with the Recommended Racer Level 10
  • Pro Cup, with the Recommended Racer Level 20
  • Super Cup, with the Recommended Racer Level 30

Players will earn a Bronze Trophy if they reach 3rd place as their best position in the final tournament leaderboard, a Silver Trophy if they reach 2nd place and a Gold Trophy if they reach 1st place.

All Tournaments will have a common Daily Tries system through Tournament Tickets. Players who have not purchased a Vault Pass will have 4 tickets available to them across the Tournaments. If a player has purchased a Vault Pass, they will have unlimited tickets in the Tournaments tied to that World.

THE VAULT PASS

Each previous Season’s Tournaments will be attached to a “Vault Pass”, which will bring back rewards from that Season’s Golden Pass.

Players will advance in the Vault Pass by participating in the Tournaments tied to that Season and earning Vault Points. Similar to the Golden Pass, the Vault Pass will have both free and premium rewards, as players will be able to purchase the Vault Pass. Each Season’s Vault Pass will have similar rewards to the Season’s original Golden Pass, including Racer and Crew unlocks and vanity items, as well as new exclusive kart colors.

The premium track of each Vault Pass will be available as a direct purchase for $7.99/€7.99 or equivalent in local currency.

A Vault Pass Bundle will also be available as a direct purchase for $15.99/€15.99 or equivalent in local currency, allowing you to skip the first 15 tiers immediately.

NEW GOLDEN PASS & SEASON TOUR STRUCTURE

Starting in Season 7, significant structural changes will be coming to both Golden Passes and the Season Tour. A high-level summary of the changes can be found below, and these are further explained in more detail. We encourage you to read everything so you can better plan out your approach to Season 7.  

Our goals with the changes are:  

  • Make our Golden Passes more engaging and faster to complete for players
  • Allow players to focus more on which Racers they wish to unlock via Golden Passes
  • Give more rewards to players that can be used on any Racer in the game

The high-level summary of the changes is below:  

  • Seasons will now be split into 2 parts of approximately 1 month.  
  • Each part will contain 4-5 Season Tour Chapters.  
  • Each part will have a free Golden Pass track which means there’s now 100 tiers of rewards to earn for free.
  • Tiers will now require 1000 XP to complete, a 50% drop, making rewards quicker to earn.
  • Each part will have a premium Golden Pass for $9.99/€9.99 or equivalent in local currency.  
  • Each part will have a premium Golden Pass Bundle for $19.99/€19.99 or equivalent in local currency that includes 15 tier skips.  
  • Golden Passes will no longer be purchasable with Tokens, only as a direct purchase.  
  • Golden Pass Credits can still be used to unlock the premium Golden Pass.  

SEASON TOUR LENGTH AND PARTS

We have noticed that since the game was released in Early Access in April 2023, 83% of players do not reach Tier 50 of our Golden Pass. This number is even higher for players who start later in the season.

We aim to make both the Season Tour and by extension, the Golden Pass faster to complete for players by dividing it into 2 separate parts of approximately 1 month each. Having a new part to focus on each month will give players something fresh and new to focus on at the midpoint of the Season.  

The Season Tour will still have a total of 9-10 Chapters as is currently the case. The Chapters will be split between each part. You do not need to purchase a Golden Pass to access the Season Tour Chapters during Part 1 or Part 2, but players will not be able to access the Part 1 Season Tour Chapters after the conclusion of Part 1.

There will continue to be a Racer available for free via the Season Tour. In Season 7, there will be 20 Shards available from Part 1 Chapters, and 20 more available from Part 2 Chapters. This means that at a minimum all players are guaranteed to unlock this Racer and can take them to 2 Stars if you earn all the Shards on offer across both parts’ Chapters.  

GOLDEN PASSES

Starting in Season 7, each part will have its own dedicated Golden Pass with free and premium tracks. The premium Golden Pass will no longer be purchasable with Tokens and will only be available as a direct purchase for $9.99/€9.99 or equivalent in local currency.  
Golden Pass Bundles will also be available for each part as a direct purchase for $19.99/€19.99 or equivalent in local currency, allowing you to skip the first 15 tiers immediately.

It’s also important to note that Season Pass Credits can still be used to unlock premium Golden Passes.

Each part’s Golden Pass will have the same number of tiers as the full season-long Golden Passes available in previous seasons, so players can earn double the rewards they could before.

Players will now have 100 tiers to earn in the free track of the Golden pass, compared to 50 tiers previously. The amount of XP required to complete each tier, up until tier 46, is also being reduced from 2000 XP to 1000 XP, so players should be able to complete the pass in half the time. The amount of XP required to complete tiers 46-49 will be 1250 XP, while the amount of XP required for the repeatable tier of the Golden Pass will increase incrementally.

Also, with the removal of Upgrade Parts outlined in our previous Community Pit Stop, the new Upgrade Coin currency will take their place as rewards in the Golden Pass, allowing players to upgrade their favorite Racers more easily.  

The free track of each part’s Golden Pass will contain 30 Shards for another Racer, meaning that at a minimum all players are guaranteed to unlock this Racer and can take them to 2 Stars if you earn all the unlockable Shards across the 2 passes.

Each part’s premium Golden Pass will feature a different Racer. Players who purchase each part’s premium Golden Pass will be able to earn 70 Shards for the featured Racer, enough to unlock them and bring them to 3 Stars. If you join after the conclusion of Part 1’s Golden Pass, the Racer featured in that pass will be available in the Shop.

That’s a wrap on a brand-new way to access previous season’s content and the new Season Tour/Golden Pass structure! Thanks for taking the time to read the whole article, we’ll see you out on the racetrack!
