T37: Ready, Set, DODGEBALL! (in Contests)


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 23 2009 8:50 PM EDT

T37 will be a team tournament, obviously based around the game of dodgeball.

Teams

You may register your team at any time from now until the tournament begins.
Teams must have a minimum of four people, a maximum of five.
Please post teams in the following format:

Team Name: Name Here
Team Members: Members Here


There is no limit to how many teams may register.


Rules:
No decay.
No tattoos.
All rules found here are in effect.



How it works:
At 5PM every day, the lowest three MPR participants will be dropped out of the tournament, I will retire and rename the characters to reflect this. When only two teams remain, OR, every remaining team is represented by only one member, there will be a sudden death finale.

If only two teams remain, the team with the highest average MPR will win, unless the opposing teams highest MPR member can defeat all of the members of the other team.


Example: Team 1 and Team 2 are the only remaining team, each with 3 members remaining. Team 1 has an average MPR of 100,000. Team 2 has an average of 120,000. If Team 1's highest MPR member can defeat all of Team 2's members in ONE FIGHT each, Team 1 wins. If not, Team 2 wins.


If there are three or more teams remaining, all of which are represented by only one member, the two players with the highest win:total battles ratios will advance and normal sudden death rules will apply.

This tournament will start on the 28th, at noon. The end date is variable, depending on how many people participate.



Prizes:

2m per teammate on the winning team.
500k per teamate on any team that lasts until the second to last day.



The tournament ends on the seventh at 10PM
There are 3 rounds of eliminations left:

Saturday at 5PM (the 4th) (3 eliminations)
Sunday at 5 PM (the 5th) (3 eliminations)
Monday at 5PM (the 6th) (2 elimination)

The final day will decide the winner, no eliminations.


To prove your highest MPR team member can beat every member of the remaining team, you must fight them all after 5PM, and defeat them all in one fight. Post or chatmail me if you have done this so I may check as soon as possible.

Tomorrow at 5PM when the lower average MPR team has the ability to try and defeat the higher MPR team, whoever is attacking will have only one attempt to defeat each member of the opposing team. Should any of the attacks fail, the tournament will be decided. Stalemates and draws count as losses for the attacker.

lel March 23 2009 8:52 PM EDT

is there a BA cap?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 23 2009 8:57 PM EDT

The BA cap will be contingent on the duration of the tournament, 400 BA per day, basically.

With a total of 25 players, the tournament will last 8 days, on the 8th day only 2 players will be dropped, unless one of the other sudden death conditions is met first.

New teams may still form, if you are still looking for a team please post.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 26 2009 11:29 PM EDT

At 5PM every day, the lowest three MPR participants will be dropped

Does this include the first day?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 26 2009 11:38 PM EDT

I suppose not, the tournament will be 9 days in length, the first day nobody will be dropped.

DoS [Battle Royale] March 28 2009 1:13 AM EDT

DODGEBALL!!!

QBOddBird March 28 2009 1:15 AM EDT

*throws a wrench*

Messbrutal March 28 2009 1:17 AM EDT

Looking for a team, want to try this out.

I am still a nub but since we all start at 0 I might have a chance.

If someone want to hook me up with their team and a nice strat, that would be nice.

Admiralkiller March 28 2009 1:18 AM EDT

I need a team to play on!

Admiralkiller March 28 2009 1:30 AM EDT

{Team Shire} Admiralkiller
{Team Shire} Messbrutal

Apparently Ifrit and Ethereal still need a team CM me to Join or anyone else.

Admiralkiller March 28 2009 1:36 AM EDT

I guess the next 2-3 people that want a team can join this one.

TheHatchetman March 28 2009 1:39 AM EDT

First Ranger wants DoS and deifeln8, now you want Ifrit and the Ethereal? :P

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 28 2009 1:40 AM EDT

This tourneys rigged haha. =D.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 28 2009 1:50 AM EDT

P.S.
can you rig it in my favor? :)

AdminShade March 28 2009 7:53 AM EDT

When does it start and when do we need to get our characters made?

12:00 pm servertime today

{cb2}Dinh March 28 2009 9:45 AM EDT

I'll join Team Shire ;)

lel March 28 2009 9:50 AM EDT

Underage Drinking March 28 2009 11:34 AM EDT

c'mon start already :P

lel March 28 2009 11:35 AM EDT

Go Go Team Carnage!!!

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 28 2009 12:12 PM EDT

Some items you selected were bought by someone else before you clicked (or, since you are participating in a tournament, perhaps these items have not yet finished their 'cooling off' period of 20 minutes):
A Whip [9x1] (+0)

How come others have whips already? =(

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 28 2009 12:13 PM EDT

Yeah I'm unable to buy a single weapon from the store... at all.. not one :( Not sure what to do about this as I am at work and don't have hours to wait for "my window" :S

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 28 2009 12:14 PM EDT

You'll be able to buy weapons in 6 minutes, otherwise if you don't want to wait that long go mage.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 28 2009 12:15 PM EDT

Go mage with zero XP?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 28 2009 12:16 PM EDT

lol, oh yeah, guess you'll have to wait 5 more minutes.

lel March 28 2009 12:16 PM EDT

I bought a weapon

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 28 2009 12:16 PM EDT

Where do you get this 5 minute number from?

lel March 28 2009 12:17 PM EDT

isn't it a 20 minute cooldown?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 28 2009 12:18 PM EDT

20 minute cooldown on the item itself, not the character. So hypothetically I could buy all the weapons under 100 cbd in the store, and camp them all day and prevent any new tournament character from obtaining one ... for as long as I wanted...

Make sense?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 28 2009 12:22 PM EDT

I still cant buy one >:o

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 28 2009 12:23 PM EDT

Maybe all of the lower ranged weapons just got sold to the store.

Wizard'sFirstRule March 28 2009 3:41 PM EDT

is there no way I can get a rare weapon?

QBRanger March 28 2009 8:50 PM EDT

I know it is 400 BA a day, and the day theoretically ends at 5PM .

So at 5pm tomorrow, how much ba can we have used?

Untouchable [The Knighthood] March 28 2009 8:52 PM EDT

Team:I made you cry
chracters:qwe,asd,zxc

QBOddBird March 28 2009 9:43 PM EDT

Sucky.


We had flash flooding this morning, and I ended up with no road/no internet, so I couldn't do the tourney OR go to work!!

-.- Sorry, Team Awesome

Rawr March 29 2009 2:17 AM EDT

What happened to the 400 BA per day rule? If this is not enforced... then whoever makes their characters at exactly 12 PM wins the MPR race...

TheHatchetman March 29 2009 2:19 AM EDT

I think a DQ would occur at the time of completion... For example, spend 600 BA /day for 5 days, and you're fine as long as it lasts until day 8, should it end day 7, you've taken and accepted the risk

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 2:19 AM EDT

Rawr: A day has already passed. 400 per day, so 800 is the max currently. (right?)

TheHatchetman March 29 2009 2:20 AM EDT

although upon further thought, that could hurt for the sake of who's getting bumped out... not sure what's up with this :P

Rawr March 29 2009 2:26 AM EDT

deifeln8: people have passed the 400BA/day limit much before the "new day".

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 2:28 AM EDT

"At 5PM every day"

Wrong new day ;)

Rawr March 29 2009 2:31 AM EDT

Then that proves my point further, does it not?

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 2:32 AM EDT

The first 5 PM has already passed, 5 hours after the tourney starts.

Rawr March 29 2009 2:34 AM EDT

Oh. ok. thanks for the clarification

Guardian March 29 2009 2:37 AM EDT

i am fighting but with no team...

if any can call me to a team i would apreciate

AdminShade March 29 2009 6:18 AM EDT

I have changed a few names around to put more uniformity in the tournament character names.

Please let me know if some names need adjusting, also some people haven't yet put a team name in front of their name, and others have deviating names. Please make suggestions for me to fix this.

examples:
{Joe}ofAverage
{Average Joe}kefeck

Tourny boy
practicingstrat
i made you cry
3rdlolmanTEST
Shinoob
T37Okay

AdminShade March 29 2009 6:30 AM EDT

Also: how do we know if we have reached the daily BA cap? is there a hard line at which we can't fight any more or do we need to keep track of it ourselves?

lel March 29 2009 6:45 AM EDT

T37Okay isn't playing

lel March 29 2009 7:12 AM EDT

retired characters aren't can't be dqed right for the 3 per day thing?

Messbrutal March 29 2009 8:15 AM EDT

Thanks for adjusting my name, I didn't taught of placing my time when I created it and couldn't change it myself after.

I am very intrigued about the 400 ba per day also, At first I was under the impression that tourny character would simply not be able to get more then 400 per day but seems I will have to pace myself, I certainly don't want to get dq.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 29 2009 8:22 AM EDT

To clarify, you can use as much BA per day as you want, 400 BA per day is just how I calculate the total BA cap.

Messbrutal March 29 2009 8:29 AM EDT

So once I reach my 400 BA used per day it will automatically stop me from using more?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 29 2009 8:33 AM EDT

There is no per-day BA cap, only a total BA cap for the entire tournament.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] March 29 2009 9:17 AM EDT

Still getting the refresh bug for having a char in 6/20... woke up after 6 hours of sleep, should have had 160 but woke up to 125... Love how this always happens in mpr based tournies.

QBRanger March 29 2009 4:14 PM EDT

The BA cap is therefore 3600?

lel March 29 2009 4:17 PM EDT

4200

TheHatchetman March 29 2009 4:19 PM EDT

how do you get 4200?

lel March 29 2009 4:22 PM EDT

400x 10 +200 starting BA

AdminShade March 29 2009 4:23 PM EDT

I would then say 4000? 10x400 (starting BA is just part of the 400 per day, not?)

Rawr March 29 2009 4:23 PM EDT

I think the 200 starting is considered a part of the 400 BA/day "limit"

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 4:24 PM EDT

Fail guys

"The tournament will now last 10 days and have a BA cap of 4200."

AdminShade March 29 2009 4:25 PM EDT

my point exactly ;)

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] March 29 2009 4:32 PM EDT

Yeah its still upsetting though, cause then you can't keep up with some of the lower refresh folks... you fall back from the pack, therefore fall back in CB, therefore you fall back in mpr

QBOddBird March 29 2009 4:33 PM EDT

I'm out of it. Between flooding yesterday and work today I'm just not gonna be competitive. /fail

lel March 29 2009 4:33 PM EDT

yeah I think I've been getting 8 BA per refresh instead of 10

AdminShade March 29 2009 4:34 PM EDT

Anyway, regarding renaming characters appropriately. Please check with your Tourney team mates and get back to me on who to rename.
Please send me a CM about it and I'll process it asap :)

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 4:41 PM EDT

Weird, I'm getting 10 BA refresh.

lel March 29 2009 4:42 PM EDT

I'm getting a 10 refresh when I'm active but when I'm not active I'm getting 8 per refresh.

QBRanger March 29 2009 4:47 PM EDT

Slayer,

Please put the BA cap in the first post-4200.

Colonel Custard March 29 2009 5:06 PM EDT

I was without internet for about 24 hours. Was there a round of eliminations yesterday? Will eliminations be posted in the thread?

QBRanger March 29 2009 5:09 PM EDT

I thought the first eliminations would have been at 5pm today.

DoS [Battle Royale] March 29 2009 5:09 PM EDT

I believe they are, Ranger.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 March 29 2009 8:12 PM EDT

Circumstances beyond my control prevented me from being on at 5PM today, in the future, if anyone can screen capture the rankings at 5PM I will be able to work off of that, assuming I am delayed.

Today's Eliminations:

Team Awesome:

Oddbird
Hakai

Team Average Joes:

Wasp [Demon Forging] March 30 2009 2:57 PM EDT

I know I'm being a bit thick here but can we buy BA or do we have to use BA from regens only? I've missed a lot of BA and I don't know if I can even get 4200 now??

AdminShade March 30 2009 3:07 PM EDT

I don't know if I can get to 4200 also, I'm spending all I can basically.

lel March 30 2009 4:39 PM EDT

You have 10 days, get 3 sets per day and it's fine.l

Ouch. Lets go PK.

Wizard'sFirstRule April 1 2009 10:10 PM EDT

NOOOOOOOO, I can't do it. Too many comrades fallen to the power of the big ball.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] April 2 2009 11:45 AM EDT

So I hope sometime soon the refresh part of the tourney gets fixed... Today I woke up with more BA on my 6/20 refresh char than my tourney char... and under no circumstances that should ever happen >_<

QBRanger April 2 2009 12:18 PM EDT

I have yet to have a problem with BA on my T character. I keep that one as the active one though.

Seems to me there are 4 more days left in the tourney.

Remember the BA cap is 4200.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 2 2009 5:16 PM EDT

The tournament ends on the seventh.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 2 2009 5:18 PM EDT

{Carnage}Okay (67709)
{Shire}Tourneyboy (65995)

Wouldn't the last three be 'the man, bag, and tourney?

QBRanger April 2 2009 5:22 PM EDT

Man was not officially in the tourney.

It seems he was just playing about.

Underage Drinking April 2 2009 5:40 PM EDT

:O i thought the lowest score got booted not mpr

kevlar April 2 2009 5:45 PM EDT

you have to go to community, much more, tournaments, click on this tourney and then PR to see the rank. I was confused on that too hehe

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 2 2009 6:08 PM EDT

home>character standings>minions pr will get you there as well given that you are currently on your tourney char.

AdminShade April 3 2009 1:21 AM EDT

I have provided the news item for the Tournament with a direct link to Tournament 37 top MPR ranking :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 3:01 PM EDT

"the team with the highest average MPR will win"

does this mean average of non-retired players or will the average include retired players as well?

lel April 3 2009 3:04 PM EDT

all of them

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 3 2009 3:04 PM EDT

Not including retired players.

QBRanger April 3 2009 3:05 PM EDT

Then can we see somewhere the MPR of the retired characters at the time of their retirement?

Perhaps someone in their name their final MPR?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 3:08 PM EDT

"Not including retired players."

i kinda suspected that, thanks for the clarification slayer!

So basically, it'll be the average MPR of the 1 or 2 people left?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 3:13 PM EDT

it could have been more, if there were only two teams left but all five were left on both of them or any number less than that for that matter.

QBRanger April 3 2009 5:44 PM EDT

Am I wrong in assuming there are only 3 days left?

lel April 3 2009 5:53 PM EDT

This Character will only be active for the duration of tournament 37, which ends in 3 days 18:06:37

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 3 2009 5:54 PM EDT

The tournament ends on the seventh at 10PM
There are 3 rounds of eliminations left:

Saturday at 5PM (the 4th) (3 eliminations)
Sunday at 5 PM (the 5th) (2 eliminations)
Monday at 5PM (the 6th) (1 elimination)

The final day will decide the winner, no eliminations.


To prove your highest MPR team member can beat every member of the remaining team, you must fight them all after 5PM, and defeat them all in one fight. Post or chatmail me if you have done this so I may check as soon as possible.

QBRanger April 3 2009 5:56 PM EDT

Will we get extra BA after 5pm on the 7th to fight other characters or will we have to use some of the 4200?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 3 2009 5:58 PM EDT

You'll have to save BA.

Soul Eater April 3 2009 11:45 PM EDT

What exactly are they doing????

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 3 2009 11:46 PM EDT

dudemus is feeding his teammate wins.

QBRanger April 3 2009 11:47 PM EDT

Very strange as I CM'd Slayer about this strategy before the T started.

He instructed me that it would not matter as AVERAGE MPR would be used.

Now I find things have changed or our tourney admin misled me.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 11:47 PM EDT

we are picking one teammate with the best chances of winning and intentionally losing to him to boost his xp at the cost of our own.

it was also done at the start of the tourney by another team.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 11:49 PM EDT

here is my pm to him, i don't think there was any room for misunderstanding in the way i asked or that he answered me at least.

"To: Admin{CB1}Slayer333 Sent: 6:42 PM EDT Delivered: 6:42 PM EDT
one of my teammates is urging that some of us should decide on the best bet for the tourney and everyone else lose to them to beef them up. i was under the impression that this was a no-no, but could find no supporting evidence that this was the case. i did see some teams doing that early on though so was wanting a verdice from you on it. posting it in the tourney thread would be great!"

QBRanger April 3 2009 11:49 PM EDT

Here is the CM from Slayer when I asked about it:

From: Admin{CB1}Slayer333 Sent: March 28 6:58 PM EDT Delivered: March 28 8:44 PM EDT
eh, they get no real net gain in average MPR by doing that, sacraficing one players growth for another

In other words he led me to believe that it was AVERAGE MPR for all players.

If I would have known back then, Carnage would have been doing it from day 1.

This tourney is not bogus and utter crap.

QBRanger April 3 2009 11:51 PM EDT

IE,

Carnage would have do it from day 1.

We did not as I was led to believe by that CM there was no gain in doing what you are doing right now.

And now I find there is a HUGE benefit.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 11:52 PM EDT

i too thought it was average mpr, until i realized that i couldn't check the mpr on mikel today and asked earlier.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 3 2009 11:53 PM EDT

Slayer saves the mpr's as he eliminates people.

QBRanger April 3 2009 11:54 PM EDT

No Kefeck.

Read a few posts up.

He does not and is using the final contestants MPR only.

While is a change from the CM I received and therefore makes the T completely bogus.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 3 2009 11:54 PM EDT

he stated above that once a teammate is down, their mpr really means nothing to the team.

it is up above^

Wizard'sFirstRule April 3 2009 11:59 PM EDT

there is no advantage to doing that from day 1. It means that you have 1 person that is really growing and the "feeders" will not be giving much XP very quickly.

QBRanger April 4 2009 12:00 AM EDT

Which is a direct contraindication to what he CMd me.

Now that things have changed, Team Carnage is at a huge disadvantage on the matter.

If we would have known how it was really going to be, we would have used this strategy from the beginning. Or a variation thereof.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 4 2009 12:00 AM EDT

After re-reading my original response to Ranger, it does seem to conflict with what I've told dudemus, so I will ask that you not spend any BA intentionally losing to your teammates.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 4 2009 12:02 AM EDT

consider it stopped from me then.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 4 2009 12:20 AM EDT

Even when it could be used it ain't a fair strategy nor a particularly hard one. it really defeats the purpose of having so many people competing in the tournament cause they won't actually participate for a long time in it (relatively). i am just glad that those teams who were doing it aren't fully winning anyway.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 4 2009 1:44 AM EDT

Well, It was my idea so if you want to be mad at anyone blame me ^^. I was talking with dude when I was at work, and thought that at this point in the tournament and with how the rules were setup that this would be our best chance to win. I told dude to CM slayer about it to make sure we weren't breaking any rules, and we decided to go with Zang because he also had enough money to buy all his minions, so all together our best bet.

I didn't get a chance to use this because I was tied up at work (The owner of the company's wife is having a baby within the week (like could pop at any time) so he's been training me really extensively to run things while he's away)

Anyways, looks like a failure in communication. Don't really know what to say, I was told it was fair, and I expected EVERY team to be doing it at this point. -Jir

AdminShade April 4 2009 6:56 AM EDT

imho fighting to lose against another team mate is considered cheating. I would never do such thing unless it would be approved by the tourney master, and since it is not I hope that's a good thing.

I just also hope that this doesn't influence the tourney in the people's favor who have done it.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 4 2009 9:04 AM EDT

it was approved by the tourney admin, i did exactly what you are supposed to do when in doubt.

QBRanger April 4 2009 9:37 AM EDT

I have no problem with what you did Dude.

That is not the issue. In fact, I asked Slayer about it before the tourney even started.

However, what I was told and what you were are 2 different things.

That was my problem. If Team Carnage knew we can do it, it would have been done from day 1.

lel April 4 2009 9:41 AM EDT

Carnage didn't do it because we thought it was based on the average MPR of the whole team instead of just the people remaining

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 4 2009 10:18 AM EDT

I didn't think to do it earlier because I was under the same assumption, which I guess is a breakdown in communications :S. Once I realized that that was in fact not the case, ... well here we are!

:S Even with that, Carnage still has a great shot to win this, so on that note either way well played guys!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 4 2009 12:01 PM EDT

the first time that any type of tournament is ran, it is a learning experience. we solidify the rules through problems such as this.

as stated before, i had seen one team do it earlier in the tournament and had watched for action. none came so when my teammate brought up the idea i said we should ask slayer first.

the thing that upsets me is that i did just what i was supposed to and because of that lost mpr retraining 3 times now, lost growth during the time i was attacking my teammate and feel that some are insinuating that we cheated.

if we were to pull out a win now, it would likely be questioned and that is also frustrating. i am done with my ba and done with this tournament. g'luck to all that are left!

QBRanger April 4 2009 1:03 PM EDT

If my posts were insinuating you cheated, I am sorry about that.

What you were doing was directly contrary to what Slayer told me was possible. That is what I was upset about.

AdminShade April 4 2009 10:07 PM EDT

I had a big party which I really had to attend. Couldn't fight any more but it would not have mattered. I could not become the #4 lowest MPR again.

Good luck to anyone still in the tourney, I hope next time more people will join.

DoS [Battle Royale] April 5 2009 12:55 PM EDT

But the rules say there should be 3 eliminations....

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 5 2009 5:16 PM EDT

"Saturday at 5PM (the 4th) (3 eliminations)
Sunday at 5 PM (the 5th) (3 eliminations)
Monday at 5PM (the 6th) (2 elimination) "

QBRanger April 5 2009 5:19 PM EDT

Then that recently changed as it used to say 3, 2 then 1 elimination.

I know as Fatality and I conversed this AM about how he thought he was safe with only 2 people to be eliminated today.

Fatil1ty April 5 2009 5:59 PM EDT

K I demand that my tourney player is unretired!! I had money to buy and the tourney used to say that 2 would be retired today not 3. I have chatmails with ranger and even above it said that only 2 should be booted!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 5 2009 6:14 PM EDT

"K I demand that my tourney player is unretired!!"

Probably not the best approach. I understand what happened was unfair, and that you are upset, but... Demanding something be done from the person in charge usually results in the opposite action of your request.

Try asking with a "please"? ;p

lel April 5 2009 6:35 PM EDT

I thought it's impossible to unretire a tourney character.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 5 2009 6:39 PM EDT

:S I'm confused, I was also under the impression today would be two people gone and not three. Hope this is figured out, or explained...

:S

Wizard'sFirstRule April 5 2009 6:57 PM EDT

I burnt through my 4200 BA, and I don't think I have enough MPR. *frowny*

Fatil1ty April 5 2009 6:58 PM EDT

"Tomorrow will have two eliminations, this appears to be the best way to reach a sudden death scenario"

wow so because it won't reach a sudden death you change the rules with no warning and that's it...wow way to manipulate the way the tournament runs without telling anybody.

and to anybody saying my way of going about it is not the best, how would you feel if you followed all the rules and the rules were changed last minute to manipulate the results to obtain a desired outcome.

Sounds like the CB equivelent of rigging a tournament

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 5 2009 7:56 PM EDT

while the tournament may have been rigged, it was done to likely bring it to a conclusion in a certain timeframe and not to benefit a certain player.

tournaments also are not always fair. i was told that a certain action was a valid strategy, lost some xp due to training to use that strategy, wasted a couple hundred ba doing said strategy and then was later told we couldn't do that. i was then told i would get some xp back, ba back, cash back or all of those. that never happened either.

i do feel that slayer is learning from the mistakes and that overall tournaments are getting fairer. usually due to our input and our problems.

as for what needs to be worked on from this tournament:

please respond to all pm's in the tournament thread along with the original cm. (this would likely have avoided the problem i had)

in elimination tournaments, please post the eliminations before hand and stick to it or give at least 4 hour notice if they will change.

thanks!

Fatil1ty April 5 2009 7:57 PM EDT

I agree dude. I was pretty frustrated at first but I realize tourneys aren't perfect I just wish I had known before hand.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 5 2009 8:02 PM EDT

that is understandable, sorry it worked out that way for ya!

as tournament players, we need to be better about posting questions in the tournament thread rather than using cm's. had i done that, then the issue might have been resolved before it cost me and my team. (even when we think we have an idea or strategy for winning that no one else has thought of.)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 5 2009 11:09 PM EDT

Fatility, granted we weren't expecting you to be retired, if you reread the first part of the rules:

"At 5PM every day, the lowest three MPR participants will be dropped out of the tournament, I will retire and rename the characters to reflect this. When only two teams remain, OR, every remaining team is represented by only one member, there will be a sudden death finale."

That kind of reflects what happened. I KNOW he said otherwise, but based on the players remaining at the time of removal, and the above paragraph, well... I dunno.

This sounds more like an error in communication, which happens sometimes. *shrug*

QBRanger April 5 2009 11:17 PM EDT

No VI,

It was posted for at least 2 days how the eliminations were going to progress the next 3 days.

They were 3, then 2 then 1 person eliminated.

In fact, I had a few CM's with Fatality about him getting his MPR up. But he pointed out, as late as 1030 this morning, that only 2 were scheduled to be eliminated.

It is impossible for us to be on all day. In fact, absences of 8-10 hours are not unusual.

For the rules to change that same day, in such an important aspect of the game is something that should not happen.

That stated... This is the first of this type of tourney and mistakes happen.

Nothing can be changed, not that his character was retired. I hope we all learned from this and it does not happen again.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 5 2009 11:26 PM EDT

I agree with you ranger on the whole thing, I was just trying to offer a possible explanation, and the failure in communication was exactly what you said, the fact that he posted 3/2/1 as I also expected only 2 to be retired. Live and learn I guess, other than the two hiccups I enjoyed this tournament, just wish you didn't own me so hard >_<

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 6 2009 2:38 AM EDT

i probably would have done better if it had started next week during the school HOLIDAYS :/ but either way i am happy with this tournament despite the numerous mistakes throughout. GOOD WORK SLAYER!

QBRanger April 6 2009 11:17 AM EDT

So what is to prevent the lower MPR team from attacking 1 from the higher, beating that character, then immediately retraining to beat the other from the higher MPR team?

Seems to me that gives a HUGE advantage to the lower MPR team, which to me seems contrary to who things should work.

The higher MPR team should have the advantage, no?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 6 2009 1:53 PM EDT

Ranger we've been communicating via cm, but just to put it in the open, as the lower MPR team, yes this could happen as we've discussed, but I think no one will be happy if this happens. As it stands now, In my eyes, Elite will buy his minions, we will be the lower mpr team by about 8 average points. From here Elite will either beat you both or he wont. I know we could essentially take advantage of this unless slayer speaks up, but lets just have a 'good ending'.

At the end of the day, he either beats you guys both cleanly, or he doesn't. No tricks, surprises, gray areas. The end.

Or you guys lower your mpr and take advantage, but if you can't beat us both anyways, then it's wasted effort.

Lets just play ignorant to the flaws in the rules for now.

Tomorrow at 5PM when the lower average MPR team has the ability to try and defeat the higher MPR team, whoever is attacking will have only one attempt to defeat each member of the opposing team. Should any of the attacks fail, the tournament will be decided. Stalemates and draws count as losses for the attacker.

QBRanger April 6 2009 2:03 PM EDT

So,

We will have 24 hours to "prepare" after the final contestants are decided?

At 5pm tomorrow the final battle starts?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 6 2009 2:10 PM EDT

Today the final eliminations will take place, tomorrow at 5PM I will determine which team is attacking and which team is defending, and after I post that result, you may attack at any time.

kevlar April 6 2009 3:05 PM EDT

good luck every1 >:)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 6 2009 5:02 PM EDT

Todays Eliminations:

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 6 2009 5:04 PM EDT

spank 'em!

QBRanger April 6 2009 5:05 PM EDT

Thanks for staying neutral everyone.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 6 2009 5:06 PM EDT

GO TEAM SPANK!

Fatil1ty April 6 2009 5:07 PM EDT

c'mon ranger and DoS wish I was there beside ya.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 6 2009 5:10 PM EDT

I agree with that concept Fatality

blackshadowshade April 6 2009 5:10 PM EDT

Go Team Spank!

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 6 2009 5:13 PM EDT

I'm done, Failure. Apparently even with a 2-1 dex advantage, ranger can still hit me every round. I had not anticipated that.

Well played all, I had fun.

GO ELITE!!!

QBRanger April 6 2009 5:15 PM EDT

Sorry Dude, I did not remember you being on Team Spank.

My apologies.

Senility is bad.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 6 2009 5:18 PM EDT

we are about the same age i believe, so i fully understand! now spank him.

QBOddBird April 6 2009 5:21 PM EDT

You need the Elven Set, Vanilla, that puts Evasion back to its old strength and acts as though you are wearing an AoF. *grin*

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 6 2009 5:27 PM EDT

Wow man I'm just retarded. It's official, I don't know what's going on but every since I stopped smoking pot It's like DDDDIIIRRR moments...

I'm like uhhh why is ranger owning me... Hmm could it be because my newly trained DM owns my own EC? I THINK WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

*sigh*

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 6 2009 5:29 PM EDT

d'oh! self spankage makes me sad. ; (

DoS [Battle Royale] April 6 2009 5:31 PM EDT

Lol, weird

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 6 2009 5:42 PM EDT

Meh, just a stupid moment on my end. I basically trained a DM with the effect of ~24k to combat your GA in my mind, only to discover that my ECs are all under this. So basically I killed every single one of my ECs because I am a tool. /facepalm.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 7 2009 4:00 PM EDT

/me goes and comforts Vanilla for his self spankage actions.
there, there mate

Mikel April 7 2009 4:10 PM EDT

Doh :(
Good Try Spankage!
sorry I wasn't of more help, I was screwed from the start :(
Teach me to take a nap right after Wacky Xp time starts on Saturdays!

grats to the winning team!

Messbrutal April 7 2009 9:41 PM EDT

Congratulation to everyone, I got to say this was pretty fun, can't wait to join next tournament and see how good/bad I will do then.

Fatil1ty April 7 2009 9:52 PM EDT

great job guys, thanks for doing such a sweet job

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 7 2009 10:01 PM EDT

This tourney was fun, even with the few hiccups. And the fact i forgot to hire. =x.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 7 2009 10:13 PM EDT

Congratulations to Team Carnage, the winners of the tournament!

Prizes will be sent out later tonight or tomorrow, thanks for all who participated, and be on the look out for another tournament this month!

AdminShade April 8 2009 12:57 AM EDT

woop woop

Soul Eater April 8 2009 2:09 AM EDT

What will the next tourney entail if you don't mind me asking?

AdminShade April 8 2009 10:43 AM EDT

Nobody knows yet but Slayer. He will announce when it's time for the new Tournament :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 8 2009 1:13 PM EDT

if this type of tournament is ran again and if it is corrected to be average mpr for the team, i would suggest dropping the lowest mpr from the average in order to avoid someone joining a team just to sabotage them by having a very low mpr.

if it is done as this one was and not average mpr, then ignore this comment.

AdminShade April 8 2009 1:28 PM EDT

It should always be done as per currently playing (i.e. not DQ'd) player average mpr or score imo

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 8 2009 1:37 PM EDT

The next tournament will not be average MPR.

TourneyPrizes April 8 2009 4:43 PM EDT

Prizes have been sent out.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 8 2009 5:07 PM EDT

thanks again!

QBRanger April 8 2009 5:10 PM EDT

Thank you very much for a very entertaining tourney.

TheHatchetman April 8 2009 5:21 PM EDT

While we're discussing future limitations on tourneys of this nature, I have another proposal... When disqualifications happen in segments, make the BA cap per segment, so that the BA limit actually means something :P Not to take anything away from Team Carnage, as they certainly did earn their victory, but what happened here was often a case of "he who clicks most"... Many players were on a pace to hit the 4200 limit, but since they couldn't spend over 1k battles the first couple days, they got knocked out too early to tell where they could've/would've ended up.

Basically, daily eliminations should equal a daily BA limit ^_^

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 8 2009 5:41 PM EDT

If I had the ability to set a daily BA cap I would, but as it is that is just something that takes too much time to monitor and is too easy to accidentally break the rules on.
