The Xunlai Tournament House was the in-game representation of ArenaNet's tournament betting system, where players coul predict the outcomes of tournaments. Xunlai Tournament Agents worked for the Tournament House and appeared in major cities before tournaments.

To enter the contest, players logged in at the Xunlai Tournament House webpage using their account name and password. New players could setup a new account there. Once logged in, predictions could be selected by dragging and dropping the names of the participating guilds in the desired order. Players were able to come back to make changes to their predictions at any time before a certain deadline.

HistoryEdit

According to Godun, Xunlai Tournament House Commissioner:

Long ago, there were two brothers named Laihuen and Minwien. These two brothers were fiercely competitive. When the brothers were young, they would compete against one another for everything — the longest jump, the swiftest runner, even who could eat food faster! And yet, even though they tried to outdo one another, these two brothers were still very good friends. As adults, they traveled the world, picking up new skills and fighting dangerous monsters. Each year they would return and hold a competition to see who was better — and they would let others fight, as well! These games became famous, and drew crowds from many kingdoms to bet on the outcome of each battle.
Well, eventually, the brothers both fell in love with the same woman, and... ah, but that's another story. Suffice it to say that one went to Tyria while one stayed in Cantha, and the tournaments stopped for a very long time — until 1071, when trade between our two countries began once again. The competitions were revived as a way of celebrating the heroes of our shared past, and honoring them was the basis of the Xunlai Tournament House that we have today.
