Players will be able to participate in a variety of competitions, including a Decathlon of ten tournaments consisting of four different tournament types, as well as many other opportunities to win bonuses and rewards.

The Festival of Kobol will begin with the first of the Decathlon tournaments on July 27. Every other day, players can travel to various sectors on the map to engage in tournament battles:

- Annihilation – Players that inflict the most damage against the opposing faction wins.
- Crucible – Players that gain the most experience points without boosters or capital ships wins.
- Decimation – Players with the most Player-vs-Player victories wins.
- Rock Buster – Players with the most mined resources wins.

On days in between each tournament, Battlestar Galactica Online will hold a Golden Rock Splitter event from 6p.m. to 8p.m. where players can mine from exquisite gold and silver asteroids that contain scarce resources guarded by ancient drones. Throughout the Festival of Kobol, BSGO will also offer a sale on specially designed, limited-edition golden ship skins for Human and Cylon fleets.
