Even RoBF is acceptable? And suppose I get a familiar or does no DD apply everywhere?
forgot to clarify - RoBF is the only unusable tattoo :)

Thank you Slayer I will worship your tournies henceforth!

Why is the RBF the only tattoo you can not use?
It certainly is not too powerful at the lower reaches the game as many past posts attest to.
We can prove it is uber powerful near the top, however that certainly does not apply to the lower ranks of the game.
I say this is poppycock, all tattoo or none should be allowed.
Especially after so many convincing arguments stating the RBF is in no way, shape or form overpowered.
After using an RoBF on my NCB at the lower levels I can say from experience that no other tattoo is anywhere near as good to use for early-game.
This no-RoBF isn't for all tourneys from this point, just for this one.

There are so many counters for the RBF, AC/TOE/RBF.
I still think the RBF should be allowed due to the fact it is not overpowered at all. Plenty of past posts have convinced me of that.
But I will defer to your judgment on the matter as obviously I have no knowledge of what is too powerful or not in CB. :)

Ranger the issue with tourney RoBF is that it turns it into a complete RoBF tourney... It is just a contest to see who can camp and buy off the highest tat. The counters waste a lot of time and a lot of BA that could be better spent gaining MPR or Score. Massive AC also requires you to either use armor that lowers skills and such or use leather stuff which can't get very high. And the ToE doesn't reduce enough early to counter the RoBF.

Doesn't matter what is judgment is of what is or isn't too powerful in CB, Ranger - even if he simply said, "I just don't want RoBFs in my T19 tourney", that's his call and he doesn't have to justify it...
I think you're all missing the sarcasm and irony of Rangers posts.
no RoBF eh.......? so familiars can be used for the DD spells....ok =D

At least Zog can understand my posts.
My above posts were dripping with sarcasm. I fully well know the RBF is the best tattoo to use in tourney and nl characters.
>Defeat the highest MPR character on November 9th.
at noon? or starting at 12 midnight?
My apologies then Ranger - sarcasm does not travel well via internet. :)
Oh, and it the attacking may begin at midnight.

No Melee Weapons, including UC.
Some of these guys are using a melee weapon to start out. you see it in their purchase log. That is not fair for those who did not and had to lose about 30-40 fights to get enough exp to train amf to even win a battle.
November 7 2007 3:54 PM EST
Did you really think that you had to start off losing until you got AMF?
November 7 2007 3:58 PM EST
Why not Hatch thats what the rules say no melee
November 7 2007 4:00 PM EST
and what of the last tourney that specified no physical attacks? Mages only. I can recall there was an exception to that one... Not sure what it was, but there was one...
November 7 2007 4:05 PM EST
The mage war
the tournament will last from October 4th, 12:00 PM EDT to October 11 12:00 PM EDT.
Rules will be in effect tomorrow at 12PM.
I believe he gave us 24 hours, this tourney says nothing like that
November 7 2007 4:17 PM EST
Yeah... we're cheating...
November 7 2007 4:20 PM EST
Why can't I try a dd spell if you can use a weapon to start maybe the rules don't start yet huh. Reset us both don't matter i'll start again
November 7 2007 5:04 PM EST
Well all that aside I still assume Familiars are out of the question right?
November 7 2007 5:08 PM EST
forgot to clarify - RoBF is the only unusable tattoo :)
November 7 2007 5:28 PM EST
and as far as melee weapons to start off go, we're down to two choices...
1) Allow them.
- or -
2) Reset everyone but Ash.
November 7 2007 6:02 PM EST
and what happens if two people beat the same character and that char ends up being the highest MPR?
I will announce who the official target is as late tonight or as early tomorrow as possible, before the announcement no attacks will count
November 7 2007 6:09 PM EST
I would not tell them Koy is the target till Friday, to give them time to prepare :)
By highest MPR character I meant highest MPR in the tournament :)
BloodHoundGangT19 Is the target
November 8 2007 12:47 PM EST
Yipee! I am the target come get me :P!
Big PAPA is the first to defeat NIN, congratulations :)
2nd and 3rd place are still up for grabs!
November 9 2007 1:25 AM EST
Papa never beat me though.... How can this be? No-one has attacked me since Nov 8th
November 9 2007 1:35 AM EST
Well I have been told that just because the Win Condition says defeat on November 9th other rules were broken so therefore I suppose he does win.
prizes sent out in a moment :)
