T35: Battle Royale (in Contests)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 5:35 PM EST

A special Christmas tourney for everyone this time around, this may be your only chance to own a piece of CB history, Koyaanisqatsi!

The rules:

Decay is barred
Tattoos are barred
You may fight anyone at any time
There is no BA limit
The tournament will begin on the 27th at noon, and end on the 10th of January at noon.

Winning is simple, the first person to defeat Koy wins.

There will be no second and third place prizes, however, everyone who participates and spends at least 1000 BA will earn 200k.

Because you cannot use auctions, I will supply weapons. You will have access to a BoNE, and a choice between an MSK or an ELB.

DoS December 8 2008 5:37 PM EST

Thats awesome! I'll take ELB than maybe, if we are supposed to ask here.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 5:40 PM EST

Yes, please make your requests here.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 8 2008 5:43 PM EST

elb for me as well and it looks like fun!

Varcas December 8 2008 5:49 PM EST

I think I'm going to try this. I'd love to use a mageseeker.

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] December 8 2008 5:53 PM EST

I'll definitely play this one. ELB for my tourney guy.

Fatil1ty December 8 2008 5:54 PM EST

I'm in and I'll take the ELB

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] December 8 2008 5:54 PM EST

MSK plz

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 8 2008 5:56 PM EST

This sounds like fun.

Elb for me as well.

Varcas December 8 2008 6:05 PM EST

Do we have to kill him in one battle?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 6:07 PM EST


LittleLauren December 8 2008 6:07 PM EST

Mageseeker for me!

QBOddBird December 8 2008 6:17 PM EST

I, too, would like a MsK.

winner winner December 8 2008 6:27 PM EST

MSK for me, thanks

three4thsforsaken December 8 2008 6:29 PM EST

Msk please!

winner winner December 8 2008 6:34 PM EST

and what happens if no one beats Koy?

QBOddBird December 8 2008 6:35 PM EST

all contestants are reset!

Lochnivar December 8 2008 6:39 PM EST

now that is motivational OB!

Sickone December 8 2008 7:32 PM EST



Sickone December 8 2008 7:37 PM EST

....this is Spartaaaaaaa!

P.S. I can only assume single-taps are NOT mandatory, right ?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2008 7:37 PM EST

only beating Koy in a single fight will count

Sickone December 8 2008 7:39 PM EST

That is mathematically impossible...

DoS December 8 2008 7:39 PM EST

I think it can be done 2 weeks.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2008 7:41 PM EST

the bonus will be rather high...

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 8 2008 7:41 PM EST

Sickone, the bonus will be insanely high. Btw, I want a MsK please.

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2008 7:41 PM EST

I don't think it is impossible. But I do think it will be REALLY hard. Unless there is some ridiculous bonus to EXP and/or money.

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 8 2008 7:42 PM EST

Oh, I'll take the MSK by the way.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 8 2008 7:44 PM EST

in case you missed it in chat, slayer mentioned a 4000% bonus to rewards.

Rawr December 8 2008 7:55 PM EST

BoNE and MSK Please

Ariac December 8 2008 7:59 PM EST


The Old Gods December 8 2008 8:04 PM EST

BoNE and MsK

Rizy December 8 2008 8:05 PM EST

msk <3

Rawr December 8 2008 8:06 PM EST

What is the prize? jw

GM December 8 2008 8:06 PM EST

This sounds honestly pretty exciting. Anyways for using 1000 BA, will the 200k be forwarded to our regular character or tourney character?

Btw Ill take an ELB.

DoS December 8 2008 8:07 PM EST


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 8:07 PM EST

all prizes go to regular characters

The prize is Koy.

GM December 8 2008 8:08 PM EST

Sounds like a smart way to get people to participate.

Is there a limit of BA we begin with?

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

You start with 200 BA for this one, no limit on how much you can use

birdman December 8 2008 8:17 PM EST

how do you get into a tourney

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 8:21 PM EST

When the tournament begins if you create a new character (via the manage button) you will have an option to enter it in the tournament.

Mikel December 8 2008 8:23 PM EST

Rentals legal?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 8:25 PM EST

Tournament characters cannot rent items, loan items, or buy BA, this is coded in, you can try if you want :)

Cube December 8 2008 8:34 PM EST

Will the strategy on Koy stay the same?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 8:35 PM EST


fatty the loner December 8 2008 8:35 PM EST

I'm in BoNE and MSK

Cube December 8 2008 8:36 PM EST

BoNE and MSK

DAS bro December 8 2008 8:55 PM EST

im in it

Bone and ELB please

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 9:13 PM EST

Anybody have a link to koy's character page? I keep getting this crap.

GM December 8 2008 9:14 PM EST


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 8 2008 9:14 PM EST

The link is in the original post.

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 9:15 PM EST

D'oh, nevermind.

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 9:17 PM EST

So, just a question, do we get to keep these weapons even after the tourney is over? >:-)

Rawr December 8 2008 9:18 PM EST

I'd just like to point out that the winning condition in this tournament is awesome. I've been reading about many complaints about past tournaments and I've read the conditions. I like the improvements - having to have to beat a specific character, almost like a boss. I'd imagine this would be good for every tournament - and change the strategy of the "boss" character each tournament.

DoS December 8 2008 9:20 PM EST

No rave, the weapons stay on the tourney characters.

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 9:20 PM EST

Oh also, will koy's strategy be unchanged when the tourney starts? No added equipment or anything?

Cube December 8 2008 9:27 PM EST

I already asked above Rave. The answer's yes.

Daz December 8 2008 9:32 PM EST

Hahaha, this is an awesome tourney idea. I'm in. I'll go for the ELB, too.

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 9:57 PM EST

I think I'll just take a MSK, just in case.

Dudster4 December 8 2008 10:20 PM EST

i will take the BoNE and the MSK

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 8 2008 11:58 PM EST

I'm kind of worried about someone attacking Koy to weaken him so a certain tourney character can then beat the weakened opponent. Is it possible to transfer Koy over as a tourney character so that nobody but tourney characters can attack him?

Rawr December 9 2008 12:12 AM EST

I don't understand how Koy being attacked would weaken him?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 9 2008 12:12 AM EST

kind of like a double tap but with two users hitting instead of one - it is easy enough to watch for.

Rawr December 9 2008 12:15 AM EST

That's foul play : /

TheHatchetman December 9 2008 12:15 AM EST

so huge bonus or 8 month tourney? :P

QBOddBird December 9 2008 12:17 AM EST

huge bonus ftw!

TheHatchetman December 9 2008 12:18 AM EST

MsK +BoNE please ^_^

Steve G December 9 2008 2:34 AM EST

MsK / BoNE

birdman December 9 2008 3:45 AM EST


BluBBen December 9 2008 4:23 AM EST

MsK / BoNE

Please? :-D

Sickone December 9 2008 7:50 AM EST

"in case you missed it in chat, slayer mentioned a 4000% bonus to rewards. "

Let's say you can beat him with the proper strategy at around half his MPR (that's actually less than half his XP), so let's say you'll need 1.8 mil MPR to beat him... IMO, that's actually a conservative estimate.
To get to 1.8 mil MPR (about 40% of top MPR) you would need next to the equivalent of a 40% timespan since CB started - and that would be roughly 200 weeks times 0.4 equal 80 weeks. You will also need to NOT miss any BA at all during those 2 weeks of the tournament.

But... wait... that's calibrated for "all additional daily purchaseable BA used"... so, actually, you will end up about one third lower than that !

To be honest, I'm not sure a 4000% bonus will be quite enough - at the very end of 2 weeks, some MIGHT be in a position to ATTEMPT to beat him, but that's about it.
Personally, I am suggesting at least 5000% bonus, as a bare minimum, preferably even 6000%.

Daz December 9 2008 8:38 AM EST

Yeah, I had been thinking the same. I was just entering for the 200k :)

Cube December 9 2008 11:07 AM EST

Meh, he could be beat at at least a minimum of 35% of his PR with one strategy.

TheHatchetman December 9 2008 11:11 AM EST

cube's got his strat set, I've got mine. Your move sickone ^_^

Picasso December 9 2008 11:40 AM EST

MSK and BoNE please =)

{CB1}stingiestbard [why] December 9 2008 12:00 PM EST

Mageseeker + BoNE please

Negator December 10 2008 4:33 AM EST

I didn't think I would get into tournaments, but just the chance to maybe read those words, "... defeated Koyaanisqatsi" at the top of my screen is enough to get me interested.

Just one question - if we can fight anyone at any time, that means there is no compulsion or incentive to even attack another tournament character?

QBOddBird December 10 2008 5:03 AM EST

Well that's entirely up to you, but no, there's no inherent advantage to attacking other tourney players.

Sickone December 10 2008 5:49 AM EST

"cube's got his strat set, I've got mine. Your move sickone ^_^ "

Well, considering that on average I don't even manage to get to a typical tournament BA cap by the time this is over, and considering it's running in a "pre-holiday RL get-stuff-done" frenzy period (which also include Christmas, when I probably won't even be online at all), I will pre-assume I have basically zero chance of getting a high enough MPR to beat him even with the optimal possible strategy - and I certainly won't be the first one to beat him, even if I do manage to get high enough eventually.
So if I participate at all, best I can hope for is the 200k participation prize (which comes down to basically one and a half day's worth of normal income).

My turn : apathy :D

{CB1} DeFiAnT [Jago] December 10 2008 7:59 AM EST

I'm in and I'll go with the BoNE and MSK.

DoS December 10 2008 8:23 AM EST

Thinking about it I would rather use MsK instead of Elbow :\, sorry.

QBJohnnywas December 10 2008 8:40 AM EST

With an NCB of 353% and 11000 battles I'm at 220k MPR. That's in just over two weeks and with only straight fighting and no bought BA.

What's the bonus? 4000%? Given the same amount of growth (and challenge bonuses) that might give you a team of about 2.5 mill MPR. Is that going to be big enough to take out Koy?

DoS December 10 2008 8:45 AM EST

JW, I'm sure if you make the team specialize in just killing Koy, yeah probably.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 10 2008 10:31 AM EST

Koy will not exactly have an ironclad strategy, there are pretty obvious weaknesses to it, 2.5m should be plenty of MPR.

Negator December 10 2008 10:34 AM EST

All right then, I'm in. MSk and BoNE, please. :)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] December 10 2008 11:07 AM EST

im in as well, i pick a msk

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 10 2008 11:21 AM EST

There are still 7 MSKs, and 23 ELBs.

Newlin [SeeD] December 10 2008 12:53 PM EST

MSK for me please.

QBJohnnywas December 10 2008 1:06 PM EST

I think I'm in. Can I have a BoNE and an ELB please.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 10 2008 1:07 PM EST

Why the heck not, be fun to play with that kinda bonus

ELB and BoNE

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] December 10 2008 1:47 PM EST

Msk and Bone, I might have time to play this tourney

Mikel December 11 2008 11:39 AM EST


AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2008 12:08 PM EST

Dude, it's time to summon the kraken and make this thing official, could be the best tourney CB has ever seen.

This a prize fight, the best of best.

Come on down folks, 200k a PLAYER, all you've got to do is burn 1000 BA!

Get a top damage weapon and a 4000% bonus to see what a tank can do.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2008 12:17 PM EST

I suppose I'll try this. ELB + BoNE, please.

Sickone December 11 2008 4:02 PM EST

Eh what the heck - ELB for me please (alongside the BoNE).

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 11 2008 4:03 PM EST

The tournament start date may be pushed back a day or two, Jon is apparently very busy lately and has not replied to emails about the items.

Dudster4 December 11 2008 4:09 PM EST

random question if we use our ba before the tournie starts do we start with the 200, or if we save the ba do we start with 360? how does that work?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 11 2008 4:10 PM EST

Tournament BA is separate from normal BA.

Dudster4 December 11 2008 4:10 PM EST

oh ok, thanks!

MissingNo December 11 2008 4:44 PM EST

MSK / BoNE please.

three4thsforsaken December 11 2008 4:46 PM EST

if someone wins can the tournament early go on till at least the end of December? I want to take this as a valuable opportunity to test out more tank damage :P.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 11 2008 4:48 PM EST

Not with the bonus the way it is, no :)

birdman December 11 2008 9:04 PM EST

i asked for an elb but i want the bone to incase it wasnt obvious :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 11 2008 9:12 PM EST

"You will have access to a BoNE, and a choice between an MSK or an ELB."

from what i read, we will all get the bone, the only choice has to do with msk or elb.

Ryuyoko December 11 2008 9:35 PM EST

Wow my first tournament...BoNE and since i don't know what MSK and ELB are I'll let you pick for me :)Give me the good one....

The Old Gods December 11 2008 10:27 PM EST

What happens to the money we earn during the tourney? Does it stay with the tourney char?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2008 10:28 PM EST

Yes, the only money you'll get from this one is the participation prize money.

Wizard'sFirstRule December 12 2008 12:32 AM EST

how about a tourny without starting item in the future? I am stuck with like 50 katana and ES.

Cube December 12 2008 12:34 AM EST

Painkiller, auctions aren't allowed anyway.

three4thsforsaken December 12 2008 12:35 AM EST

if you really want a mage tourny, sure.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] December 12 2008 1:09 AM EST

I will have a BoNE and an MSK please!

I love the idea of this tournament! I haven't done a CB2 tournie so this should be a fun change of pace! Good luck everyone!

Flatcap [East Milwaukee Devival] December 12 2008 1:15 AM EST

Bone and a Msk please

blackshadowshade December 12 2008 5:10 AM EST

Hey, also my first CB2 tournament!

I'll take an Msk and Bone if they're still available.

BluBBen December 12 2008 6:45 AM EST

Are double taps allowed?

Cube December 12 2008 6:55 AM EST

Single taps only I think.

Xiaz on Hiatus December 12 2008 6:57 AM EST

I choose the MSK! THANK YOU!

Sickone December 12 2008 10:11 AM EST

How about...

"Tournament lasts UNTIL somebody beats Koy"

??? :)

Ryuyoko December 12 2008 8:01 PM EST

Yea I choose MSk if there still availible since a lot of people want it.

GM December 12 2008 8:06 PM EST

Hopefully you don't start this tomorrow, otherwise I'll have a slow start.

Rawr December 12 2008 8:09 PM EST

"The tournament will begin on the 13th at noon"

GM December 12 2008 8:13 PM EST

I'm not looking through the thread again, but it was stated this tourny could be delayed a day.

Rawr December 12 2008 8:19 PM EST

Its the original post. And I don't think a tournament for the whole community wiill be delayed for one person :(

GM December 12 2008 8:21 PM EST

Lol, I don't mean the whole thing should be delayed for me. Slayer said somewhere it could be delayed since he couldn't get a hold of Jon. I have no idea now though.

Tyriel [123456789] December 12 2008 8:21 PM EST

I'm pretty sure the tournament would be delayed if that one person was Jon, the one giving people their weapons.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 12 2008 8:26 PM EST

As it stands now it will be delayed until I receive the items from Jon

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 12 2008 9:18 PM EST


Mikel December 13 2008 12:15 AM EST


So should we still create our Tourney character at the start up time? just don't create a minion?

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] December 13 2008 12:18 AM EST

I would like to play and could I get a ELB? :)

[MP]MoneyPig [SNB Forging Services] December 13 2008 4:57 AM EST

I'll take a MSK, please :)

PearsonTritonRaveshaw December 13 2008 11:54 AM EST

It's not too late to ask for a BoNE as well as the MSK I requested earlier, is it?

Lochnivar December 13 2008 12:38 PM EST

/me would like
A BONE and maybe a MSK..
.. oh, and Koy of course

Colonel Custard December 13 2008 1:28 PM EST

MsK please. And BoNe.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 13 2008 1:35 PM EST

blackshadowshade requested the last MSK, everyone who has posted since he did will receive an ELB.

three4thsforsaken December 13 2008 1:44 PM EST

just to be sure, everyone gets a BoNE right? If not, I meant to ask for one before :P

Mikel December 13 2008 1:46 PM EST

when can we create our tourney characters?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 13 2008 1:49 PM EST

when the tournament starts you can create your characters, at the moment that date is undefined.

Everyone gets a BoNE

Cube December 13 2008 1:49 PM EST

After Jon logs on and gives slayer the weapons, I figure he'll set the date.

winner winner December 13 2008 1:50 PM EST

Maybe 12/24 as start date?

LittleLauren December 13 2008 5:36 PM EST

Nooo. Some of us have things to do on 12/24 and 12/25 :P.

Rawr December 13 2008 5:38 PM EST


winner winner December 13 2008 5:39 PM EST

lol, that's when my break starts

DoS December 13 2008 5:46 PM EST

12/18 as a start date would be the best ;)

Mikel December 16 2008 11:51 AM EST

any news?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 16 2008 3:27 PM EST

Still nothing from Jon - I'll have a full admin put up an announcement on the front page of CB when the tournament is going to begin.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 16 2008 3:41 PM EST

Last login at 10:47 AM EST.

I realize he's busy, but this is getting to be kind of ridiculous.

Rawr December 16 2008 3:55 PM EST

Tournaments are NOT a necessity; they are created to liven up the game. Being mean about it to the people who make it isn't really going to move anything along.
Be patient! :)

GM December 19 2008 12:01 AM EST

Bump, hopefully this gets underway soon.

winner winner December 21 2008 5:38 PM EST

any news?

QBOddBird December 22 2008 1:13 AM EST

I am requesting a rename of T35: The Tournament that Jon killed.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 24 2008 3:43 PM EST

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 24 2008 3:54 PM EST

Let the games begin!!!

winner winner December 24 2008 4:02 PM EST

why on the 27th?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 24 2008 4:04 PM EST

it's a saturday

winner winner December 24 2008 4:06 PM EST

Well I like this start time a lot better, I might actually try for Koy now.

GM December 24 2008 4:24 PM EST


QBJohnnywas December 24 2008 4:28 PM EST

Ah no. I'm not here for it. Oh well. Good luck everybody!

DoS December 24 2008 4:44 PM EST

sweet!!! Thanks NS!

Sickone December 24 2008 5:17 PM EST

Hooray for the tournament with the lowest participation rate (I can only assume most of us will be out during the holidays).
I don't suppose a delay to make it start on, say, 3rd of January 2009 (or even a couple of days later) would be possible ?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 24 2008 6:16 PM EST

I think its been delayed enough.

Unappreciated Misnomer December 24 2008 6:58 PM EST

im in it for a bone and msk if there is a drop out, otherwise elbow-me ^_~

Ancient Anubis December 25 2008 3:29 AM EST

bone and msk please although elb if none are left

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 25 2008 5:35 PM EST

Well, cancel my participation in this tourney. Look's like I won't be able to do it this time. :(

BootyGod December 25 2008 6:56 PM EST

I'll take what weapons are left for grabs ^_^

bohab December 26 2008 9:02 AM EST

i would like to try if ins not too late.

GoLDeNGaTE December 26 2008 9:18 AM EST

bone and msk

DoS December 26 2008 11:38 PM EST

12.5 hours to mayhem!!

Unappreciated Misnomer December 27 2008 10:20 AM EST


MissingNo December 27 2008 11:04 AM EST

I think Slayer said that you guys signed up too late to get a MSK because there were only a limited number of those. :p

QBOddBird December 27 2008 12:09 PM EST

There are no starter weapons....can't start fighting. Disadvantage! sucks.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 27 2008 12:13 PM EST

Items are going out now - anyone who requested an MSK after the last one went will get an ELB

Unappreciated Misnomer December 27 2008 1:56 PM EST

do not forget to name your weapons lol

Rawr December 27 2008 2:08 PM EST

16000 cash rewards per fight T.T I'm gonna miss it when its over

AdminShade December 27 2008 2:27 PM EST

I'm in!

If only for the 200k ;) but I'll try my best :)

birdman December 27 2008 4:00 PM EST

i havent gotten my weapons if its because i just made my char ignore me

Sickone December 27 2008 4:00 PM EST

Created the tournament character now - when do we get the weapons ?
(ELB here)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 27 2008 4:40 PM EST

items sent - please continue to post here if you make a character and need weapons

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] December 27 2008 4:51 PM EST

Just made my char, would like the BoNE and MSK please. Thanks!

fatty the loner December 27 2008 4:54 PM EST

My guy is made bone and Msk please

birdman December 27 2008 5:03 PM EST

are rentals allowed?

DoS December 27 2008 5:05 PM EST

It won't allow you to rent an item if you try.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] December 27 2008 5:33 PM EST

Created. ELB Please.

DoS December 27 2008 5:39 PM EST

In my opinion MSK users vs other tourney characters aren't going to want to upgrade their mageseekers as much as the BoNE. Or I see it as a cheaper fix for more damage.

Soxjr December 27 2008 8:31 PM EST

Created Char need weapons. Not sure which weapon I can get. But I will take the elb. I guess.

{CB1} DeFiAnT [Jago] December 27 2008 11:18 PM EST

Just created my char as well.

Flatcap [East Milwaukee Devival] December 27 2008 11:59 PM EST

Colonel Custard December 28 2008 12:13 AM EST

BoNE and ELB

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 28 2008 1:32 AM EST

This is fun so far =D

Newlin [SeeD] December 28 2008 2:18 AM EST

It's hard to keep a good challenge bonus when you get so much XP at once.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] December 28 2008 4:29 AM EST

My character is [T35]This Old Man

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] December 28 2008 4:56 AM EST

I know I requested a Bone and Msk back when I first was asked

DrAcO5676 December 10 1:47 PM EST
Msk and Bone, I might have time to play this tourney

Guardian December 28 2008 5:05 AM EST

i want bone and mgsk !

Guardian December 28 2008 5:08 AM EST

why it says no ba limit and i cant buy ba?

AdminShade December 28 2008 6:36 AM EST

no BA limit means that if you play every day, then you aren't limited to the amount of BA you spend.

You cannot buy BA for Tourney characters but in some Tournaments you get i.e. 4000 BA and have to do whatever it takes with just those 4000 BA.

Guardian December 28 2008 4:51 PM EST

no problems, i just think tourneys are very cool and cash prize awesome!

DAS bro December 28 2008 9:12 PM EST


FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] December 29 2008 4:55 AM EST

If you still have the gear, I'll take it. I was ELB unless you ran out.

Flatcap [East Milwaukee Devival] December 29 2008 6:24 AM EST

Umm how did novice end up with a named bow?

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] December 29 2008 6:25 AM EST

He paid for it

GM December 29 2008 9:27 AM EST

He should be disqualified. :P

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] December 29 2008 10:00 AM EST

Meh, it was his choice to spend money on naming an item and it wasn't stated anywhere that it was against the rules. He obviously wants Koy more than anyone else.

fatty the loner December 29 2008 10:05 AM EST

Or he just wanted the coolest weapon :)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 29 2008 11:45 AM EST

Has anyone not received items yet?

AdminNightStrike December 29 2008 2:17 PM EST

I would say that naming the bow is a strategic choice, and a good one at that!

nemods December 29 2008 3:29 PM EST

Bone and ELB please

DAS bro December 29 2008 10:30 PM EST

what happens if a rule is broken???? just asking :)

TheHatchetman December 29 2008 11:14 PM EST

CM slayer and he'll look into it ^_^

Rawr December 30 2008 2:08 AM EST

Looks like I'm just going to have to be strategy testing. Dang power outages :(

blackshadowshade December 30 2008 4:24 AM EST

Slayer, I'm still waiting for my weapons.

AdminShade December 30 2008 5:44 AM EST

DAS bro: if a rule is broken, contact an admin or the tournament admin, they will look into it.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 30 2008 11:29 AM EST

Wow. Nice job Nov. ;)

winner winner December 31 2008 9:05 AM EST

Are all the tournament characters retired after someone beats Koy or are they retired after the 10th?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 31 2008 10:55 AM EST

it'll keep going till the 10th, for fun - auctions are still not allowed even after Koy is defeated

winner winner December 31 2008 10:58 AM EST

So if I retire my character after Koy is defeated, will I still get 200k or do I have to wait until the 10th?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] December 31 2008 11:00 AM EST

Wait until the 10th

The Old Gods December 31 2008 7:52 PM EST

accidentally bid on a ToE, nobody panic it was an accident and ill most likely get outbid anyway

GM December 31 2008 7:54 PM EST

Anyone wanna tell me how Troyanisqaatsi got a MPB of 17M?? Anyone?

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] December 31 2008 7:58 PM EST

I would venture a guess, (but don't quote me on it...) that it may have something to do with this bug.

Soul Eater December 31 2008 9:35 PM EST

How would someone get a Mageseeker in a tourney?? Cause Three Magicians has one. I thought the only way to get them is through the auctions.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 31 2008 9:48 PM EST

"You will have access to a BoNE, and a choice between an MSK or an ELB."

Soul Eater December 31 2008 9:49 PM EST

MSK stands for Mageseeker? Granted I'm still a nub so if I'm wrong please forgive me.

QBOddBird December 31 2008 9:51 PM EST

Yep, MsK is Mageseeker.

Check out the Glossary section in the Wiki sometime, we've got a decent compilation of abbreviations in there that could help out. :)

Soul Eater December 31 2008 10:21 PM EST

Sorry for my lack of CB Knowledge.

An Elven Long Bow [6x5325] (+80) NW$ 50M.

Ima catcha ya. Well probably not, but it'll be in the top ten for ELBs in the next day or so.

TheHatchetman January 2 2009 1:35 AM EST

Thankfully, I was outbid, but I accidentally bid on a ToA with my tourney char >.< I meant to bid on it with my main char

DoS January 2 2009 2:55 AM EST

3 mill score and 1 mill mpr

blackshadowshade January 2 2009 7:33 AM EST

Not that it matters now, but I never did get my weapons.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 2 2009 7:53 AM EST

BSS, didn't you see Slayer post to ask if he got everyone their weapons? Awwww, that's no fun.


Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 2 2009 7:57 AM EST

Nevermind. I see that you did remind him after the post.

Bad Slayer! ;p

I say we string him up!!

Andy January 2 2009 9:15 AM EST

Tie him to a tree and eat his Maoam?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 2 2009 10:04 AM EST

Are you sure? I'm positive I sent them...

Well, either I was blind before (always a possibility!) or they weren't there yet when I last checked. However, they are there now. Thanks anyway! x(

Thanks to Slayer, GW, Sal, lostling, DoS, The Knighthood, and CB period! If I forgot you, I'm sorry, I'm a terrible person normally, and right now I'm rattling from 4 hours of fighting with Koy.

Soul Eater January 3 2009 3:56 AM EST

Oh wow Novice beat Koy!!

three4thsforsaken January 3 2009 4:04 AM EST

Congrats Nov!

Lochnivar January 3 2009 4:24 AM EST

Way to go novice!

And way to go Slayer... fun tourney indeed!

Finally, please please please let's see Koy back in the fighting ranks (though preferably I will still be able to farm him).

Conquest January 3 2009 4:52 AM EST

Not even going to thank me for not retiring my character? Pssh.

Rawr January 3 2009 5:07 AM EST

Wow! How does such little hp survive through 2 fireballs?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 3 2009 5:59 AM EST

full DM beats the AS to a pulp, giving the fireball mages only 20 hp, easy picking then for any archer.

Guardian January 3 2009 6:29 AM EST

when will us get the participation 200 k prize for 1 k bttles? and when koy will go to nov?

Guardian January 3 2009 6:38 AM EST

ahhhh i got! ends in 10 january !

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 3 2009 9:51 AM EST

Way to go Nov! That's an awesome job!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 3 2009 11:10 AM EST

Congratulations Novice, on the 10th Koy will be sent to you. the 200k participation prize will be sent out when the tournament ends. Until then feel free to toy around with strategies ect, however please refrain from using auctions.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 3 2009 11:18 AM EST

Just to be clear, it means if you bid on something with your tournament character and win, I'm going to fine the amount that you paid for that item from your main character.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 3 2009 11:35 AM EST

*also selling items would be a bad idea

Please send Koy to DrAcO5676 when the time comes.

Again, thanks to Slayer! (and Conquest, who was kind enough to leave me a soft target with a nice score!)

GM January 3 2009 11:36 AM EST

Congrats Nov! I knew you were planning something when your ELB wasn't one in the top 10 no more. Noticed you had a lot of DM, which was the strategy I was going for. I tried to even it out more, but it did work out for you. Once again congrats on this competitive tourny that you own.

DoS January 3 2009 11:45 AM EST

Congrats nov!

GM January 3 2009 1:01 PM EST

Just wondering. What if I accidentally sold my ELB to the store, and then accidentally bought it back with my regular character?

Guardian January 3 2009 1:04 PM EST

so if u sell accidentally to store, leave it there, otherwise if u buy with your main chair u gonna be punished coz u are helping ya team with tourney stuff.

hey shade do more torney like that i need strategy tests ! and it was hell lot fun!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 3 2009 1:10 PM EST

"Just wondering. What if I accidentally sold my ELB to the store, and then accidentally bought it back with my regular character?"

you would also likely guarantee that we never have a tournament such as this again. we would ostracize you from the community and your sad little reclusive life would shrivel into obscurity and depression. ; )

GM January 3 2009 1:14 PM EST

Hey it was just a thought. I wouldn't be able to afford my tourny ELB anyways. It sells to the store for 10.5M. My Bone on the other hand sells for 300k :P

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 3 2009 1:31 PM EST

If you "transfer" a weapon in that manner, it will be taken away from you. :)

AdminShade January 3 2009 1:38 PM EST

Heh, you can't even transfer those items back to the store since they are considered 'valuable' items...

AdminShade January 3 2009 1:38 PM EST

And yes I've tried this with some small armors which I didn't need any more ;)

AdminShade January 3 2009 1:47 PM EST

Wow grats novice, I completely missed it even!

I'm going to try to invest some money to get the biggest version of an item of any type perhaps ;)
