The Gram Scale Tournament is open to any A·T team of B-Class or higher; however, the necessary registration documents must be completed and submitted along with the team leader's R.E.A.D. data before the clock tower at Tropaion Tower tolls nine times.
Once applied, matches are randomly determined by the central database in the Tropaion Tower. Any class of battle is possible; usually, the higher-ranked team decides the type of battle and location. The tournament progresses using a knockout style of elimination, and the finals are a zero-gravity D-Class battle in the main elevator of the Tropaion Tower itself.
Sleeping Forest serves as an officiator to the tournament, as Tropaion Tower is their territory. However, should a particular team enter to win the Sky Regalia and possesses the strength to do so, they will enter the tournament personally to deal with the threat.
The current iteration of the GrandScale Tournament is in progress.
The nine tolls of the Tropaion Tower leading up to the beginning of the tournament occurred at the following points in the story:
- First toll: Kogarasumaru begins their ascent to B-Class.
- Second toll: Ikki leaves the Noyamano household.
- Third Toll: Kilik reveals the history of A·T and Sora reveals his true motivations.
- Fourth Toll: Ikki begins his counter offensive against the White Wolf Clan.
- Fifth Toll: Agito completes his Bloody Blade Fang and executes it for the first time.
- Sixth Toll: Kazu wishes he could have beaten Ikki.
- Seventh Toll: Nike and Sora commence the takeover of the U.S. Fleet aircraft carrier.
- Eighth Toll: Ine Makigami meets John Omaha for the first time.
- Ninth Toll: Ikki prepares to register for the tournament.
