CB Tournament - Prize: $3 million (in Contests)


[T]Vestax February 5 2006 7:55 PM EST

This is a tourney held by myself to take the place of the one that was cancelled.

I see no purpose in not letting it go on. The prize for first place is 3 million with 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be taken from entry fees. You can join any time this week, so you don't have to join this instant.

Condition For Victory
General Tournament Rules
  1. All participants must submit a 25k entrance fee to the character 'Storage Bin' for every tourney character you enter.
  2. All entrance fees must include the name of the character in the message of the entrance fee.

  4. Tourney characters must be created after the start of the tourney. The tourney starts at Monday, Feb. 6th, in the morning at 12:01 server time.
  5. Paying players to fight and lose/draw to your character is not allowed.
Specific Tournament Rules
  1. Each tourney character is to be prefixed with '[tour1]'
  2. Multiple tourney characters are allowed.

  4. Training Decay is forbidden.
  5. All characters are to have 3, and exactly 3, minions at the start, the end, and throughout the entire tournament.

    • You must have one Enchanter. A Enchanter can not do damage directly with DD spells or physical weapons. An Enchanter must have one enchantment and can not train any Skills other then Evasion.
    • You must have one Tank. A Tank can not train Enchantments or DD spells.
  7. Regular characters are restricted to 1500 BA for making challenges. New User Bonus (NUB) characters are restricted to 600 BA for making challenges.
*Any violation of the above rules will cause the disqualification of your character and your entrance fee will not be refunded.

Additions and Clarifications

[T]Vestax February 5 2006 9:34 PM EST

The transfer from this contest and the one chadder made is official. All people who signed up for his is now automatically signed up for this one instead and do not need to pay. If for some reason you desire a refund then direct your CMs to me. Good luck to everyone.

Stephen February 5 2006 9:44 PM EST

Would you, for clarity, explicitly address the other specific rules that were previously listed. Or do we assume they no longer stand as rules? For example, can we transfer money to our tourney character?

[T]Vestax February 5 2006 11:52 PM EST

If I didn't say it then it should be allowed. Yes you can transfer funds. No there isn't a NW cap. Will these things help you or unbalance the game? No. The reason is that you need MPR to win and not PR.

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 12:09 AM EST

The tourney started 7 or 8 minutes ago. Good luck to all.

can we send non-rare items as well?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 6 2006 1:07 AM EST

and compounds not allowed? They spawn in stores...lol

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 1:07 AM EST

Yes.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 6 2006 1:09 AM EST

yes to which one(s)?

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 1:11 AM EST

No compounds. I know they spawn in stores and all, but things are more interesting this way. It's borderline rare anyhow.

As a side note, borderliner is in as well. Thanks.

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 1:15 AM EST

small1, you need to pass your replies a bit. yes to the first question. Don't feel bad if I decide to delete some posts in order to keep the thread clean.

th00p February 6 2006 6:19 PM EST

I will be unable to participate in this tournament. However, I would liek to participate in the next one when I have some more time (and BA) to spend, most likely the next tourney. Can my spot be transferred over to there? (I did pay 4x the money necessary)

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 6:55 PM EST

Err... I'm hosting another one of these I guess. I'm not rich, but why the heck not. It's only money... and xp. I can never buy BA ever again.

/me is fine though.

QBOddBird February 6 2006 7:03 PM EST

I'll help out, no worries ^_^

There might just be a lower prize next time, seeing as how money isn't exactly flying in via the entry fees.

maybe a dumb question, but can a Enchanter train EO and ED, *or* EO/ED and Evasion? I just want to make it 100% positive...=)

QBOddBird February 6 2006 8:05 PM EST

Must have one, not may only have one.


You can have multiple enchantments on an enchanter, I'm sure.

I sure hope so, at least.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 6 2006 8:06 PM EST

tis why im waiting to train...=P

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 8:06 PM EST

Yes they can. You can split the xp any way you want as long as they don't wield a weapon or have a DD spell.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 6 2006 8:07 PM EST

thnx Vestax! =)

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] February 6 2006 11:42 PM EST

When does it end? Can tourney characters fight for a clan?

[T]Vestax February 6 2006 11:50 PM EST

I suppose I did leave out the ending. It ends at Sunday 2400 military time. (That's midnight.)

As for clan fighting... I almost said yes to this. I think it best though to leave all characters clanless. It could be considered an exploit of resources that not all people have. Not everyone can be in a clan with a bonus and not all bonuses are the same.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] February 6 2006 11:54 PM EST

thanks, I agree.

AdminShade February 7 2006 3:34 PM EST

An Enchanter must have one enchantment and can not train any Skills other then Evasion.

must have 1 as minimum or must only have 1?

if only have 1 then i have some cheaters:

[tour1]smalls has 2 enchantments on smallsE
[tour1]OBsBaby has 2 enchantments on Enchanter
[tour1]Pwaetowian has 2 enchantments on Enchanter
[tour1]InfernalMisfit has 2 enchantments on Hermey

and some more people:

[tour1]Memnarch has a weapon on his enchanter
[tour1]Gilgamesh had a weapon on his enchanter

[tour1]A shrubbery has no enchanter (no enchantments on 1 minion)
[tour1]A shrubbery has a weapon on the mage (though that doesn't matter)

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] February 7 2006 3:40 PM EST

Vestax has allowed multiple enchantments.

AdminShade February 7 2006 3:43 PM EST

in that case, only look at the bottom part of my reply, some people making bad choices :)

QBRanger February 7 2006 3:45 PM EST

Well Forgebird has Haste on his mage. That even I know is not allowed.

Yes they can. You can split the xp any way you want as long as they don't wield a weapon or have a DD spell.

QBBarzooMonkey February 7 2006 3:47 PM EST

Oops, too slow :P

From: Vestax Sent: February 6 2006 8:30 PM EST Delivered: February 6 2006 8:30 PM EST
yes mages can have enchantments.


I already asked about that, Ranger. I can have it.

[T]Vestax February 7 2006 6:48 PM EST

Mages can have enchantments.

Enchanters need 1 enchantment minimum. So yes they can have 2.

Sorry for not being clear enough.

The two players in red are not legal enough to win, however, they are not disqualified since it is reasonable enough to assume that both do not have the xp to train an enchantment.

maulaxe February 8 2006 2:46 PM EST

Trained an enchantment.

naming items should also not be allowed.

just thought of that (didn't see anyone doing it)
(but then again I didn't look...)

AdminShade February 9 2006 3:17 PM EST

naming items is even useless :p

[T]Vestax February 9 2006 10:45 PM EST

Sure, I suppose I could disallow that, but like Shade said, it would be a almost pointless attempt to boost yourself.

I'ld say the top three positions are rather tight. Just as a reminder, there is only 28 hours and 30 minutes left in the tourney. Translation, 1710 to 1,197 free BA. (10 BA refresh and 7 BA refresh respectively.) Though, of course, you could always buy more BA if you need it. Good luck.

Gilgamesh2090 [NCB Shop] February 11 2006 8:09 PM EST

well, I laid down the rest of my cards. Thats it folks. Good luck to everyone

QBOddBird February 11 2006 8:43 PM EST

Well, winning would be nice, but 2nd is good. ^_^ Here's to smallpau1 and my (still) 1st congratulations to him for unofficially winning.


And here's to Shade, for bursting my bubble.

[T]Vestax February 11 2006 9:31 PM EST

My money is on the duck.

[T]Vestax February 11 2006 9:55 PM EST

I would like everyone to meet my new character. His name is Bam.

Kent February 11 2006 10:32 PM EST

If you win in the time left, that would be SO wrong.

[T]Vestax February 11 2006 11:07 PM EST

Why? Because it's me and not someone else? I allow anyone to join at any time. Besides, I didn't say weather or not I was eligible for the grand prize anyhow. A prize which is still at this moment an IOU.

I just wanted to play. Right from the begining that's what I wanted to do. Instead of playing it though, I've found myself hosting it. Trust me, I won't cheat, not that I really could since the contest relies on the game engine for results.

Kent February 11 2006 11:47 PM EST

Nothing wrong with the maker/owner playing. I just meant that, the odds and unlikelihood of your success due to the time left (it was you who said how much BA could be gotten in that time). With less Ba usable, that would be "wrong" in terms of unlikelihood.

However, you did mention buying BA, so whatever.

[T]Vestax February 12 2006 12:35 AM EST

Ah, I see.

deifeln February 13 2006 12:28 AM EST

Vestax,

I am sending you 150k and large dagger for the next tourney. Please send them back minus transfer fees if you decide not to host another one.

[T]Vestax February 13 2006 12:30 AM EST

The final results are in. It seems that raw skill is no match for xp time. That being said we'll have to find away to avoid those times in the next tourney. Here are the winners:

1st place: Gilgamesh2090
2nd place: {cb1}smallpau1
3rd place: [OB]ForgeBird

I know I technically won 3rd place but I wasn't playing to win. Anyone who paid but didn't participate will be refunded. Out of the remaining 300,000 in submission money 200,000 goes to smallpau1 and 100,000 goes to ForgeBird. Gilgamesh2090 gets the grand prize of 3 million, which I'll pay to him as quickly as possible.

As for the next tourney, it may be a while, but hopefully it will start sometime before the month is through. If anyone would like to contribute to the effort you can always send whatever you have to 'Storage Bin' and provide a CM explaining what the money/items are for. Thanks once again.

[T]Vestax February 13 2006 12:32 AM EST

Thanks deifeln, I'll set those aside.
