T38: Blender of the Dead (in Contests)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 1:03 AM EDT

7 Days Remaining

Use This Thread to discuss and vote.

Dr. Frederick Heisenburger was a scientist during the cold war era who was working on a formula to improve soldiers for the Allies. He had created a beta formula which allowed soldiers to continue fighting despite nearly mortal wounds, but it resulted in incredible loss of brain function and slowed movement; before he could perfect the formula, war broke out, and a missile hit an area near his laboratory. A cabinet with vials of the beta formula was knocked loose from the blast, and several of the vials shattered. The agent became airborne, and infected a small town nearby. You are one of a group of survivors making your way out of the town. You have heard over the radio that the military has set up a checkpoint, and you begin to traverse the now barren town...

This tournament will begin on the 25th at noon. There will be 200 starting BA and no BA cap.


How players are randomly selected:
Players are not chosen 100% randomly. Each day, at 5PM, I will determine the average MPR. Players above the average MPR are assigned one number each. Players below the average are assigned a range of numbers, the size of which depends on how far below the average MPR they are. I will then use a random number generator to determined who has been selected to become an infected, and to choose who dies, if the survivors lose a player for any reason.

Each day I will post an update around 5PM. Actions must be decided and voted on or posted by 4PM. Infected and zombies must chatmail me their actions by this time as well. Should the number of zombies ever grow past 5, the zombies will have to choose a spokesperson to chatmail me decisions.

The Survivors

The survivors have a limited amount of time to reach the checkpoint, the amount of time needed is dependent on the amount of players.

Each action the survivors can take has a time duration, and a risk of losing a player. Any player who dies because of this has an 80% chance of becoming a zombie.

Possible actions:

[Move in any direction, one space]
This action takes one day, and has a 10% risk of losing one player to zombies.

[Move in any direction, two spaces]
This action takes one day, but because the survivors opt to travel at night, the risk of losing a player is greatly increased to 60%. In addition, all moves on the subsequent day have a 5% increased chance of losing a player.

[Take cover]
This action takes a day, and makes you impervious to any loss of players the next day. You will not advance in any direction. If a survivor has turned into a zombie, this action will kill the player zombie, and have a 25% chance of losing one survivor.

[Search Area]
This action takes half a day, and gives a 75% chance that you will unlock a new tier of equipment for characters.

This action takes half a day, and reduces the chance of losing a survivor by 5% for the next day.

In addition to these, there are several actions that take no turns, and have no risk.

Players may at any time initiate one of these abilities, once per day.

[Elect Leader]
Elects a group leader who will make all decisions involving movement, and how to proceed. All survivors will be forced to follow these decisions. A majority vote is needed to become leader. The leader is immune to becoming infected, but may be killed by an infected player.

[Elect Council]
Elects a council of three players to make decisions, similar to a leader. Any member of the council may become infected.

[Vote to kill survivor]
Any player may initiate this vote. To kill a survivor a majority of 2/3 must vote to kill the survivor.

This may only be initiated when a player becomes a full zombie after being infected for two days. By sacrificing two survivors, the group may advance two spaces as all zombies in the area are attracted to the free meal. Players may volunteer to be sacrificed, or may be chosen by a leader or council.

Only one action and one ability may be enacted each day.

If no leader or council members are elected, the players will continue in a straight line towards the checkpoint until a turn must be made, in this case, the players vote on a direction.

The Infected

Every day, one player will become infected. I will chatmail this player and inform them of their imminent doom. After two full days of being infected, the agent will take full control and the infected will become a full blown zombie. When you are informed that you are infected, you have two options available to you.

You can:

[Take your own life]
This option will maintain your classification as a survivor when prizes are handed out.

[Remain hidden]
You may make it to zombie-hood, at this point, the survivors can either kill you, taking one day and risking one players life, or they can leave two survivors behind to distract you as they continue onward. As a full blown zombie, you have a few options open to you.

The Zombies

A zombie must fight at least 160 BA per day, or there will be a 30% chance of death. Dead zombies will not continue to collect prize money.

[Set up an ambush]
You, and every other zombie, may collaborate and set up an ambush on a certain spot on the map. This spot must be at least 2 spaces away from the survivors current position. For each zombie in the ambush, the chance of killing a survivor increases by 10%. A survivor killed in this manner becomes a zombie. Each survivor present at the ambush gives a 5% chance that one zombie will be killed. This ability may only be used twice.

[Gather zombies]
Every time zombies are gathered, the chance of the survivors losing a member increases by 2%. This is cumulative.

If at any point two thirds of the active players (those who have not been killed off) are zombies, the zombies may choose to attack the checkpoint itself. For every zombie, there is a 5% chance of success. If the zombies succeed, the scenario is over, and the survivors lose. If they fail an attack, half of the zombies will die.

Equipment Tiers:
You may not equip items outside of your highest equipment tier. Everyone starts on Tier 1.

[Tier 1] -5% ability to kill zombies, +5% chance to lose a survivor.
Pistol - Ranged weapons below and including base 3.
Crowbar - One handed weapons below and including base 36.
T-Shirt -
Steel Breastplate
Banded Mail
Chain Mail
Ring Mail
Leather Scale Mail
Leather Armor
All non-rare non-body armors.

[Tier 2] +10% ability to kill zombies.
Hunting rifle - Ranged weapons below and including base 5.
Riot shield and nightstick - All one handed weapons. All Shields.
Combat Experience - All skills.

[Tier 3] +10% ability to kill zombies. -5% chance to lose survivors.
Shotgun - All ranged weapons
Baseball bat - All melee weapons
Body armor - All armors [Tattoos included]

[Tier 4] +15% ability to kill zombies. -10% chance to lose survivors.
Plasma Rifle - All DD spells.
Titanium Battle Suit - All ED spells.
Psychic Dominator - All EO spells.

The Map:

On certain spaces, there will be boss zombies that must be defeated in order to continue forward. When the survivors reach these spaces, they will have a few options.

[Fight the boss]
Everyone who defeats the boss character proceeds. Anyone who fails to defeat the boss is killed, with a 10% chance of becoming a zombie.

Run as fast as you can, as far as you can. Ten members of the survivors will be chosen to die at random. Advance one space past the boss.

[Sneak By]
There is a 30% chance you can sneak by the boss unharmed, with no casualties. However, if you should fail, each player will have a 25% chance to die. For every 100k MPR you have, this percentage is reduced by 4%.


Survivors -
If the survivors make it to the checkpoint, every surviving player makes 4m. Every player who died as a survivor makes 2m.

Zombies -
For every player the zombies kill, or infect, all surviving zombies make 400k.

Please post if you are interested in playing so I can determine a general timeframe.

Yay!. Two tournies in one month =).
Might take a bit too get through all the details, seems complicated, but anyhow i'm in.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 1:08 AM EDT

Depending on how many people play, this tournament could go well into next month :)

QBOddBird April 21 2009 1:10 AM EDT

I'm interested in playing! :D

Looks like a ton of fun.

AdminShade April 21 2009 1:11 AM EDT

Count me in! Will read all details when I get back home from work.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 21 2009 1:15 AM EDT

I want in on this one.

Messbrutal April 21 2009 1:18 AM EDT

Reserve a spot for me.


Soul Eater April 21 2009 1:23 AM EDT

I want in but, am slightly confused.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 1:26 AM EDT

Ask and ye shall receive an explanation, this thread will be used for Q&A purposes, another thread will be created for participants to discuss in.

Messbrutal April 21 2009 1:29 AM EDT

How are decision gong to be made, I mean where will participant discuss this without having the other side hear anything?

A separated forum or in chat room or chatmail alone?

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 21 2009 1:29 AM EDT

Wow Gogeta, if your only slightly confused your doing way better than me :D.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 1:32 AM EDT

Survivors can communicate through any medium they wish, but their decisions will be open to all.

Zombies will have to communicate via PM/CM, and their decisions will be sent to me and kept secret.

DoS April 21 2009 1:32 AM EDT

Do you have to fight in this tournament? So I don't get where fighting comes in except that it can hurt your team if your MPR is higher.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 1:34 AM EDT

You don't really _have_ to fight, though it will hurt your chances of remaining alive by a lot.

DoS April 21 2009 1:37 AM EDT

Ok, I was just wonderin. Sorry but I won't be able to participate in this tourney :\.. Too busy this month and next month probably.

Rawr April 21 2009 1:37 AM EDT

"Players below the average are assigned a range of numbers, the size of which depends on how far below the average MPR they are."

So if I was below the average MPR, I'd have more than one number, and a larger amount of numbers as the MPR is less and less than the average.. am I understanding this correctly?

Soul Eater April 21 2009 1:38 AM EDT

Is there going to be a BA limit like in Tourney's past?

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 21 2009 1:42 AM EDT

"There will be 200 starting BA and no BA cap."

QBOddBird April 21 2009 1:44 AM EDT

Yes Rawr

Sickone April 21 2009 1:45 AM EDT

I can only suppose the lower in MPR you are, the worse the "chance roll table" will be for you, so the higher up in MPR you are, the better your chances of... doing... stuff ?
Say, for instance, players with a low MPR are more likely to be picked as the one killed by zombies if the roll says there is a victim... or to be picked as the zombie death if they're a zombie themselves... or other such things... right ?

Wizard'sFirstRule April 21 2009 2:27 AM EDT

I want to play, but I am concerned that the tourny get becoming more and more complex and too much rules to remember, can we please have this a little simplified?

BadFish April 21 2009 2:32 AM EDT

I don't understand how you move up through equipment tiers. I also do not understand why not fighting would reduce your chances to stay alive.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2009 3:55 AM EDT

I am willing to join in this but, like many, confusion is something i have.
I bet i won't make it past the 4th day :)

QBJohnnywas April 21 2009 5:20 AM EDT

I'm too busy to commit to a tourney unfortunately, but I have to say, this looks like the best tourney I've seen. Nice work coming up with this one.


{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2009 5:34 AM EDT

I'm in.

Colonel Custard [The Knighthood] April 21 2009 9:15 AM EDT

I would like to play. Unfortunately, I will possibly be indisposed from midnight to midnight on the 25th. So, here's my vote for the first day:

OB for President.
If I get infected, then gather zombies.

AdminTal Destra April 21 2009 9:42 AM EDT

so, what your saying is if no one fights the average is the same everyday, and we get one number to pull out of a hat?

no thank you

Wizard'sFirstRule April 21 2009 9:51 AM EDT

it seems more like a forum roleplay game than a tourny the more I think about it. I might pass if it isn't simplified to a more fighting based version.

Messbrutal April 21 2009 10:06 AM EDT

Sad to see so many saying they going to quit before the tournament even starts.

But on the other side that's even more chance to get on the winning team for me, so you can all feel free to run away.

This seems like a very interesting concept to me a bit more time consuming then the previous tourny and it might give a better chance to nub like me.

For all those that dislike this tournament idea, remember there's always the next one.

QBOddBird April 21 2009 10:22 AM EDT

It seems a lack of understanding is driving them to quit before they begin...I really like the changeup from a completely "who fought best" style to one where forum-based choices affect the game. We've pretty well mastered the simple MPR and Score based tourneys.

Badfish: You would move through equipment tiers by choosing this action - "Search Area.
This action takes half a day, and gives a 75% chance that you will unlock a new tier of equipment for characters. "

Not fighting would cause you to fall behind in MPR, which increases your chance of being infected. Those in the top half of the MPR statistic would have 1 number assigned to them, and in the lower half, the numbers increase as their MPR decreases. That means when a roll is made, they have a lot more numbers it could land on than the upper MPR players.

Sickone April 21 2009 10:31 AM EDT

Just a small collusion loophole here : what's stopping the players (or just a larger number of them) from collaborating in becoming infected and infecting others, while not bothering to kill any zombies nor players ?
It just seems like a scenario where "everybody wins", and not just that, the potential for winning (depending on number of people playing) can be even higher than trying to be a survivor (all you need is 5 infections to get the same, anything above that is an extra bonus).

Might I suggest a bit of rule-tweaking is needed ?
I'm not quite sure what the best alternative ruleset should be, but how about something like "zombies gain nothing" and "when you're becoming a zombie, all noble actions you take have a 50% failure chance due to the zombification" ?

QBOddBird April 21 2009 10:37 AM EDT

True, there seems to be potential for Zombies to make more reward at the end if everyone just turns infected and attacks each other.

I agree, perhaps zombies should find it more difficult to make an end reward, so that way the motivation is more along the lines of "I don't want to become a zombie, but if I do, I might as well pull as many in as I can for as big a reward as possible."

Maybe change 500k per survivor turned to 100k, so that you _WANT_ to remain human?

Sickone April 21 2009 10:54 AM EDT

Mmm... how about something along the lines of...

4 mil for survivors
2 mil for players killed that weren't zombified
1 mil for self-sacrificial players on the "notice of zombification"

2 mil for all "undead" zombies
2 mil * (undead/(undead+destroyed) for all "destroyed" zombies (or in other words, 1.5 mil times the percentage of not-destroyed zombies compared to the total zombie population)

This way, survivors want to survive quite badly, but if they were to become zombies it's a tough choice.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 12:18 PM EDT

I'll post an update to the rules to make fighting a more integral part of the tournament.

If you are confused about the rules, please post a specific question.

Draugluin April 21 2009 12:37 PM EDT

There is no registration, any amount of people can join, I just want to get an idea of how many people are interested.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 21 2009 2:47 PM EDT

I'm soooooo interested.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 2:48 PM EDT

Made a few adjustments under the "Map" section, and prizes.

It's ok, it's a zombie thread. O_O

idiotz April 21 2009 8:12 PM EDT

I'm in on this one. I'm a bit confused, but i will read over it again to see if I better understand it.

QBOddBird April 21 2009 8:17 PM EDT

Feel free to ask your questions...I've got a pretty good handle on how it works, Slayer knows exactly how it works, and I'm sure many of the other players posting here have it figured out as well. :D

Wizard'sFirstRule April 21 2009 8:30 PM EDT

search and rest takes 1/2 a day, does it mean I can search twice or rest twice or something?

idiotz April 21 2009 8:57 PM EDT

Good question.

Okay, so what I've got together in my head is...

Everyone starts as a survivor, slowly, people will be killed off by the random generator and become zombies. Then zombies can attack the survivors, but survivors can kill the zombies during the zombie invasions. The survivors get Tiers by searching, but they won't always get a tier. it either ends by zombies killing all survivors or the survivors making it to the checkpoint.

How does MPR play a role in this is what i am still confused about.

idiotz April 21 2009 8:58 PM EDT

Scratch that, I see now, Players below average MPR are assigned a range of numbers, so they get multiple numbers and the people over average get only one.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 21 2009 8:58 PM EDT

You can search and rest, no double stacking search/search and rest/rest.

Sickone April 21 2009 10:00 PM EDT

So why not merge the action in a single "Rest and Search Area" that takes a full day ?
You know, since you can't do any of it twice a day and there's no other action that takes half a day, and they're both positive actions so it doesn't make sense not to take one of them.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2009 10:21 PM EDT

I'm in...

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 21 2009 11:07 PM EDT

You might want to save that half a day for later?

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] April 22 2009 12:21 AM EDT

So, if I'm reading this right, no DD, EO, ED until the fourth tier has been unlocked. Is that right?

Aera Cura April 22 2009 12:34 AM EDT

I think i'll try this one.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 22 2009 12:35 AM EDT

You are correct, no magic until the fourth tier.

I'm tentatively putting my name in to play. Let it be known I still need to read the first post though xD

Wizard'sFirstRule April 22 2009 1:50 AM EDT

if we search a tier, do we get the whole lot or just choose 1 of them?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 22 2009 10:41 AM EDT

You get the whole thing.

AdminShade April 22 2009 11:03 AM EDT

for that tier I presume?

QBOddBird April 23 2009 11:11 PM EDT


"[Search Area]
This action takes half a day, and gives a 75% chance that you will unlock a new tier of equipment for characters. "

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 23 2009 11:14 PM EDT

So Zombies can use all options? Not just their own?

"Anticipation is a wonderful thing that is lost in CB2."

QBOddBird April 23 2009 11:31 PM EDT

What, Jiraiya?

No, they can only perform the actions listed under "The Zombies"...

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 23 2009 11:36 PM EDT

Search area is a survivor option, and you said a zombie gains tiers by using it. Am I missing something there?

Colonel Custard [The Knighthood] April 23 2009 11:47 PM EDT

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. When the survivors increase in equipment tiers, does that apply to all characters in the tournament?

And, on top of that, what is the incentive for zombies to continue fighting once they've been converted? Isn't your fighting character pretty much obsolete once you're a zombie, seeing as you're not at risk for being random-number-generated into a zombie?
OR do zombies' tourney characters still count in the number assignments, so you can try to stack the top of the board with zombie players so that more survivors get infected? Actually, that doesn't make sense if only one gets infected per day. Are you following it, though?

Also, I haven't re-read the updated rules since when I first posted. I plan on it, but I have to like eat some food and stuff first, so I'm sorry if I asked stupid questions.

QBOddBird April 24 2009 12:31 AM EDT

I gotcha now...my guess is the zombies are stuck on the tier they were at when they were human. One more reason to try to stick around as long as you can?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 24 2009 12:44 AM EDT

If thats the case, then the survivors will always know who the zombies are. (they would be the only people not progressing every time the next tier was opened)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 12:14 PM EDT

The map is posted, to choose a movement use this format:

[Color] [Number]

So possible first moves are:

Green 1
Yellow 1

You will have 16 days to make it to safety.

Soul Eater April 25 2009 12:18 PM EDT

For me Yellow 1.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 12:18 PM EDT

Tomorrow at 5PM your first day decisions are due.

QBOddBird April 25 2009 12:19 PM EDT

I vote we take the middle or lower path, gives us days to spare for tiers and gets us there quickly...upper path takes 12/16 days to make it to safety, which means we couldn't go up tiers 'cuz we would have no days to spare.

Middle seems like a decent compromise, 9/16 days

And lower is 7/16 days, but I dunno if it's worth the extra 10% risk.

Fatil1ty April 25 2009 12:20 PM EDT

I'm not in the tourney but I just put a bunch of compound bows in auctions.

Nobody can take them right now :P we're not on a high enough tier to use compound bows.

I just got on, so do I need to run in any certain direction yet? If so, how do I do it?

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 25 2009 3:33 PM EDT

No...as far as i understand we run in a direction as a group and the leader makes the choice. first we need to elect a leader and OB and someone else has be nominated

AdminShade April 25 2009 3:55 PM EDT

Ahh, got that now. I already had read through this initial post many times and tomorrow I'm taking more time to read and read again.

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] April 25 2009 4:21 PM EDT

I'd just like to thank Shinra and Fatality for taking a good move on the market and buying up all the Compound bows to sell them for alot more CB than they were worth to make a quick buck off of those working this tournament.

QBOddBird April 25 2009 4:23 PM EDT

No worries, we can't buy from Shinra as they are a fellow tournament player. :P

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 25 2009 4:29 PM EDT

I won't be able to join in until tomorrow, unfortunately. I am at my sisters' visiting and can't effectively play on her little laptop. Plus 200 BA+ is a lot of time to spend on her computer. Sorry.

Fatil1ty April 25 2009 4:33 PM EDT

no need to thank me squishy pants. it's just like war profiteering.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 25 2009 4:42 PM EDT

Anyone else getting totally owned in fighting haha =D..?

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] April 25 2009 4:46 PM EDT

You can thank the war profiteers who took all the ranged weapons out of the store so they could profit from the fact that there are no decent weapons to use now and we have to buy from them.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 25 2009 4:48 PM EDT

/me Wonders if that should be allowed? o.o

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 25 2009 5:02 PM EDT

People have been doing that since tournaments started.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:05 PM EDT

at least we know who to sacrifice now! ; )

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 25 2009 5:14 PM EDT

Usually there is a link saying "all rules here are in effect:" But I don't see it. Does this mean we are allowed tattoos? Also, do we have to run single minion characters?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 25 2009 5:17 PM EDT

the tiers tell you when you can use which spells or equipment. tats aren't listed there so i am assuming tats are a no go and it wasn't necessary to state this because of the above. i would pm slayer for final word though and please post reply here if he doesn't!

QBOddBird April 25 2009 5:19 PM EDT

Yeah, I'd check with Slayer before I tried using tattoos, as they weren't listed under allowable equipment.

And nah, we don't have to be single minion.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 5:51 PM EDT

Tats are counted as armor.

You may purchase items from another tier, but cannot use them until you've unlocked the tier.

AdminShade April 25 2009 7:40 PM EDT

"You may purchase items from another tier, but cannot use them until you've unlocked the tier."

Meaning what exactly?

1: you simply cannot equip it?
2: you can equip it but if caught you're being reset?
3: other?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 25 2009 7:53 PM EDT

I've seen about four different players violating the tier restrictions. *shrug* I'm not sure.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 8:13 PM EDT

You cannot equip it.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] April 25 2009 9:12 PM EDT

I looked at shinra's team is his nub bonus affecting his tourney minions?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 25 2009 9:23 PM EDT


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 26 2009 12:02 AM EDT

Updated Tier 1 to include all non-rare non-body armors.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 26 2009 12:21 AM EDT

Updated the [Flee] option to be a little less....forgiving. This update is to reflect the overall length of the journey compared to the amount of players.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 26 2009 12:23 AM EDT

How many people are actually participating? There isn't many fighting to justify losing ten random people in-case of a flee situation.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 26 2009 12:28 AM EDT

Tomorrow at 5PM the number will be finalized, you won't reach a boss before then.

BluBBen April 26 2009 2:45 AM EDT

I'm sorry but some things have come up that have made me unable to participate in this. Once again sorry.

AdminShade April 26 2009 8:36 AM EDT

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 25 5:51 PM EDT
Tats are counted as armor.

Are they also considered non rare and able to use them in tier 1?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 26 2009 8:45 AM EDT

Tats don't spawn in the store so that makes them rare.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 26 2009 11:31 AM EDT

Tats are a tier 3 armor.

Invader Sye April 26 2009 11:34 AM EDT

"I looked at shinra's team is his nub bonus affecting his tourney minions?"

My NUB does not affect the tourney bonus.

AdminShade April 27 2009 1:27 AM EDT

Every day, one player will become infected. I will chatmail this player and inform them of their imminent doom. After two full days of being infected, the agent will take full control and the infected will become a full blown zombie. When you are informed that you are infected, you have two options available to you.

Slayer: I take it they have to CM you their actions rather than putting them into the light as to what they are now?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 27 2009 7:07 AM EDT

Yes, Shade.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 27 2009 7:09 AM EDT

I've updated the rules, survivors who die from movement related chances to die have an 80% chance to turn into a zombie.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 27 2009 2:20 PM EDT

Prizes are tweaked, more money per head for zombies, less for dead players. Anyone affected by this will have a chance to re-evaluate their decisions.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 27 2009 2:30 PM EDT

Sneak by updated, higher chance of success, higher chance of death on failure.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 27 2009 2:33 PM EDT

This is fixing up this tourney to be much better balanced. Great job slayer.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 27 2009 3:58 PM EDT

Thanks Slayer

QBOddBird April 28 2009 12:51 AM EDT

If we dash past the spot where a boss is hidden, will we pass him?

AdminShade April 28 2009 1:08 AM EDT

no we wont...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] April 28 2009 1:55 AM EDT

methinks a boss will stop us undead in our tracks! ; )

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 28 2009 7:07 AM EDT

You will not pass over the boss.

AdminShade April 29 2009 5:35 PM EDT

Slayer: please specify that we are allowed to use all tattoos, not just lessers...

<Shade> oddish: no full tattoos in tourney.
<Shade> only lessers... not?
<OddFish> wait, what? No fulls allowed?

<{CB1}Slayer333> fulls are fine

rrowland April 29 2009 5:36 PM EDT

And decay :)

AdminShade April 29 2009 5:38 PM EDT

Plasma Rifle - All DD spells.

All is all, not all except for decay ;) but yes, would be nice to have it be added :)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 29 2009 5:40 PM EDT

Decay and full tattoos are allowed.
