T25: SNK stole my rule book. (in Contests)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 24 2008 8:32 PM EST

The dastardly fiend has stolen my rule book, and is now holding it hostage!

In exchange for the rule book, he has demanded 1m of my own money to the chat contest.

There is a twist, however!

The winner of the chat contest will only receive the extra 1m if they are an active participant in T25!

To be considered active, you must meet the following criteria:

If you win on the first day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 400 battles.
If you win on the second day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 800 battles.
If you win on the third day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 1200 battles.
If you win on the fourth day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 1600 battles.
If you win on the fifth day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 2100 battles.
And if you win on the sixth or seventh day of the tournament, you must have fought at least 3000 battles.

Now to the T25 rules.
SNK is still holding this page as collateral, so the rules will be secret!

The only hints you will get are:

There is a hardcap BA limit of 10,000. However there is also a softcap BA limit, for every 250 fights over the softcap you will lose one point.

Half of the attributes (HP/STR/DX/EO/ED/Skills) are penalties, and half are bonuses. Penalties are worth -1 points, and bonuses are worth +2 points.

If you have one of the top three in an attribute, you will receive either X5 to that attributes points for first place, X3 for second, and X2 for third. This goes for penalties as well!

To have your points be tallied, you must be in the top 24 scores for the tournament.

In addition, there are two special strategies! They are worth an extra 10 points to your score if your character has the strategy at the end of the tournament! These two strategies are on characters you can currently view. More hints will be given on February 5th!

February 5th!
This is a special day of the tournament! The hints will be given out for the special two strategies, and every tournament player will get one guess in this thread as to why the hints are being given out on that day. Whoever guesses right will get 500k!

The winner will be the player with the most points.

1st) A Pair of Elven Boots, +19.
2nd) 1 million.

In addition, everyone who has at least 75% of the top MPR will receive a 100k consolation prize.

The tournament will begin February 1st at noon, and last until February 9th at noon.

Starting BA of how much? And how long will this Tourney go for?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 24 2008 9:42 PM EST

160 starting BA, start and end date are on the last line of the original post

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] January 25 2008 12:48 AM EST

Why is there a 10k hardcap when the max you can burn through 8 days is 5,920?

Phoenix [The Forgehood] January 25 2008 9:31 PM EST

doesn't it mean that the chat contest cannot be won until at least the first day of the tourney to get the mil?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 27 2008 12:04 PM EST

The chat contest link is updated to the new chat contest

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 1 2008 2:49 PM EST

The tournament has begun!

QBOddBird February 1 2008 2:53 PM EST

Shush. You're going to ruin my headstart.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 3 2008 12:13 PM EST

Since SNK made his contest to easy :p, I'll take the 1m from the chat contest prize and add it to the Feb. 5th prize :)

SNK3R February 3 2008 1:06 PM EST

Bite me. ;)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 3 2008 3:04 PM EST

SNK got smashed by the comrades, so the Chat Contest prize is back once again!

QBOddBird February 3 2008 11:22 PM EST

reverted back to your previous post? :P

Wizard'sFirstRule February 5 2008 5:14 AM EST

I demand a special clue for tourny.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 5 2008 2:37 PM EST


1) To find the secret strategy's you will have to look at numbers 1 and 2.
2) No, it's not that obvious.

QBOddBird February 5 2008 5:44 PM EST

Might as well be the first to make a guess.

I guess that you gave out hints today because it is your birthday. ;'D

Wizard'sFirstRule February 5 2008 7:16 PM EST

because you rolled a D7 (electronically - there is no 7 sided dice) and get a 5.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 5 2008 9:02 PM EST

pfft, OB must cheat or something :p

Yeah, its my birthday. OB wins 500k!

QBOddBird February 5 2008 9:04 PM EST

Happy Birthday!

QBOddBird February 9 2008 12:46 PM EST

...so did I win? *crosses fingers*

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] February 9 2008 12:58 PM EST

No... I did ^_^

Wizard'sFirstRule February 10 2008 5:31 AM EST

so who won what prizes?

Ulord[NK] February 10 2008 9:59 AM EST

Patience whipper snapper. Takes Slayer a while to tally the results, especially for something this complicated.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 10 2008 10:12 AM EST

still working on it :)

QBOddBird February 11 2008 12:44 AM EST

I'll wait for you...forever, if I must!


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 12 2008 8:03 PM EST

The winners!

1st) Docdoc
2nd) Draco

since there is plenty of chances for me to have screwed up, everyone will have two days to double check their own score for errors.

Pluses, worth +2

Minuses, worth -1

The BA softcap was 4250.

QBOddBird February 12 2008 10:24 PM EST

Congratulations, Docdoc and DrAcO! I'm happy for you and for me too because there's a CONSOLATION PRIZE! *dances*

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] February 12 2008 10:32 PM EST
