no decay correct?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 24 2008 1:18 PM EDT

You are correct sir!

Pheather May 24 2008 1:23 PM EDT

How do we fill 4 slots of EO without using one twice? There are only 3 EOs

QBRanger May 24 2008 1:25 PM EDT


Greyfeld May 24 2008 3:32 PM EDT

Rocket > I think you just need every slot type filled... 1 skill, 1 DD, 1 EO, 1 ED. That's the minimum req's i believe.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 24 2008 5:20 PM EDT

whoops...2 EOs are ok

QBRanger May 24 2008 5:34 PM EDT

what about tattoos?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 24 2008 5:41 PM EDT

all tattoos are ok to use.

Pheather May 24 2008 5:44 PM EDT

I just need some clarification:

We need each minion to have a skill, ED, and EO, and some type of damage, and one EO may be used twice?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 24 2008 5:52 PM EDT

Yes - you don't need to actively train the spells, you just need to have them learned

Wizard'sFirstRule May 24 2008 6:54 PM EDT

so we need 4 minions right away? can I have 2 AMF and 2 DM for example? 4 damage dealers = 1 active and 3 base skill? or equip them with a tulwar? is there a distinction between archer and melee tanks and UC and archer with melee and UC archer

QBOddBird May 24 2008 7:03 PM EDT

Good question....is the differentiation between tank and mage alone, or is it melee mage (decay/CoC) and ranged mage (FB/MM) vs. UC tank, Archer, BL tank, basic tank, Evasion tank?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 24 2008 8:27 PM EDT

A tank is any minion that uses a weapon in a battle, or UC
You do need 4 minions right away

QBOddBird May 25 2008 12:14 AM EDT

So then teams all must be 2T and 2M, right?

Wizard'sFirstRule May 25 2008 1:53 AM EDT

so CoC archers would count as a tank?

QBOddBird May 25 2008 9:54 AM EDT

Hm, guess so? And Decay archers, as well.

Drama [Just for fun] May 25 2008 10:27 AM EDT

Must the Familiar you use follow the rules. Like if you have already 2 MM you can't use a SF?

QBOddBird May 25 2008 10:46 AM EDT

I don't think so, BA, otherwise this tourney would be impossible - there's no way to have 5 minions and not use a tank or mage more than twice ;)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 26 2008 12:01 PM EDT

tattoos wont count towards your tank/mage total

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] May 26 2008 12:16 PM EDT

Slayer, am I correct in thinking that people are misunderstanding?
From your example, it seems to me you can have 4 mages just as long as more than 2 do not use the same spell,therefore not the same damage and eradicating the CoC archer problem that everyone is obsessed with?
Or does everybody actually need 2 tanks and 2 mages?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 26 2008 12:28 PM EDT

You are correct, it is perfectly OK to have 4 mages, as long as only two have the same spell trained

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] May 26 2008 4:33 PM EDT

How distinguished are tanks? Can you have 4 tanks as long as they all have different types of weapons? Are they separated into per weapon type, i.e. bows, slings, 1h melee, 2h melee, UC, or ranged, melee. Or are they separated by weapon? Or not separated at all and you can only have up to 2 tanks.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 26 2008 4:44 PM EDT

just two tanks of any type, on second thought, UC will be a minion type of its own

QBOddBird May 26 2008 7:15 PM EDT


This will be one heck of an awesome tourney. *thumbs all the way up*

Andy May 27 2008 4:11 PM EDT

When do we go?

Pheather May 27 2008 6:28 PM EDT

Agh!! Slayer!! Confusing me so much!! So you can two tanks of anytype, and can also can have 2 UC minions?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] May 27 2008 6:30 PM EDT

You can only have 1 UC tank because you cannot use the same skill more than once.

To clarify, the only slot we don't have to train on every minion is DD correct? You only need a skill, EO and ED on every minion.

QBOddBird May 27 2008 6:42 PM EDT


"7) The tournament will begin June 7th and go to June 14th. "

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] May 27 2008 7:19 PM EDT

Ok, here is a summary for those who don't get it yet

You can have 2 of any one type of mage, 2 FB mages and 2 CoC mages is OK
You can have two tanks
You can have one UC minion
Every minion must have an EO, ED, and skill trained, DD spells are not required.
A tank is any minion that uses a weapon to deal damage (a UC archer will count as UC, not a tank)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] May 27 2008 8:49 PM EDT

Will a CoC archer count as a tank or a mage? or both?

lostling May 28 2008 1:24 AM EDT


Andy May 28 2008 2:09 AM EDT

I'm getting so hyped up! I'll fail but oh well xDD

QBOddBird June 1 2008 10:21 AM EDT

D'oh. I was thinking it should've started yesterday, but that says June 7.

Pheather June 1 2008 5:59 PM EDT

D'oh! Yesterday wasn't even in June! D'oh! I'm looking forward to this too though :)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 5 2008 12:37 AM EDT

Update: You must use at least 1000 BA.

QBOddBird June 7 2008 1:21 PM EDT

Good luck tourney competitors, don't think I'll be joining you this round

Pheather June 7 2008 9:46 PM EDT

Ugh...I forgot to make a [T29] in front of mine...should I just quit now?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 7 2008 9:52 PM EDT

I'll add it for you

Tyriel [123456789] June 7 2008 10:23 PM EDT

Hah, I'm such an idiot. I accidentally did ]T29] Instead of [T29].

Lol. xD

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 7 2008 10:28 PM EDT

hahaha ;)

Tyriel [123456789] June 7 2008 10:48 PM EDT

I assume it's allowed to have 2 AMF and 2 EC, right? Or do you have to have 1 of each, and 2 of one?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 8 2008 10:05 AM EDT

That is correct

Tyriel [123456789] June 9 2008 7:54 AM EDT

I'd just like to bump this so that people see this:

"1) After 48 hours you may only attack other tournament characters."


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 9 2008 12:04 PM EDT

48 hours are up, you may only attack tournament characters from this point on, unless you are below 500 battles challenged

lostling June 13 2008 11:48 AM EDT

im pretty sure selling a tattoo to the store and buying it with your tourny char is not allowed... Yes i am still ticked off about it... And now ganging up on 1 person? ...

QBOddBird June 13 2008 11:54 AM EDT

ganging up on one person is unavoidable in this tourney, lostling - you can only fight other tourney characters and it's best win ratio, so you don't want to fight anyone you aren't 100% sure you'll beat. Plus there's only like 3 active tourney players right now...

lostling June 13 2008 12:57 PM EDT

there is a difference between asking other people and ganging up on one and just fighting the person...

QBOddBird June 13 2008 1:07 PM EDT

asking other people? I'm confused, do you get permission before you fight? o.O sorry, the remark went right over my head...

Andy June 14 2008 6:51 AM EDT

Who won?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 14 2008 10:56 PM EDT
