GCW Leaderboard The GCW leaderboard period is weekly and starts/ends every Thursday at 19:00:00 GMT / 11:00:00 PST / 12:00:00 PDT (same time as the GCW rank update). At the end of the period, the winners are determined, and the list (and everyone's GCW leaderboard score) is reset to start a new period. On TC/TCP, GCW leaderboard tracking will start Thursday August 12 2010 at 19:00:00 GMT / 12:00:00 PDT, and the first set of winners will be determined the following Thursday August 19 2010 at 19:00:00 GMT / 12:00:00 PDT Characters contribute to the character GCW leaderboard by contributing to the GCW score. If the character is same faction aligned as her city/guild, she will also contribute to her guild/city GCW leaderboard by contributing to the GCW score. A character that has just joined a guild/city will not contribute to the guild/city GCW leaderboard for her guild/city for the current period. She will start contributing to her guild/city GCW leaderboard at the start of the next GCW leaderboard period. Whenever the character/guild/city position on the GCW leaderboard for the current period changes, a message is sent to the GCW channel for the character/all guild members/all citizens notifying of the position change for the character/guild/city. In-game mail is sent to the characters/guild leaders/mayors of the winners when a GCW leaderboard period ends, and the winners for the character/guild/city leaderboards are determined. Use the War Terminal / War Intel Pad / War Table to view the GCW leaderboard. The Imperial GCW Leaderboard - Current Winner / Rebel GCW Leaderboard - Current Winner title is available to the current character GCW leaderboard winners. The title will be removed if the character doesn't make the next character GCW leaderboard winners list. The GCW Leaderboard section in the Achievement tab of the Collections window displays the count of how many times the character has made the GCW leaderboard winners list. The GCW Leaderboard section in the Badges tab of the Collections window displays badges the character has earned from the GCW leaderboard. Badges (and associated titles) are granted for winning 1st place, and for making the GCW leaderboard winners list 1 time, 5 times, 10 times, 15 times... The restriction for access to the ImperialWarRoom / RebelWarRoom chat room and the Imperial War Planner / Rebel War Planner title has been changed. Only same faction aligned GCW leaderboard winner for the past 2 weeks, or same faction aligned mayor or guild leader of a same faction aligned city or guild GCW leaderboard winner for the past 2 weeks are allowed to enter the ImperialWarRoom / RebelWarRoom chat room and have access to the Imperial War Planner / Rebel War Planner title. GCW Ground PvP kills only contribute to the GCW score if the killer is "factional presence eligible".
