Give me ideas for an upcoming Tournament (in Contests)

AdminShade August 20 2009 10:15 AM EDT

As the title says, I'd like to hear some ideas for an upcoming tournament. ^_^

winner winner August 20 2009 10:18 AM EDT

regular tournament, highest score wins?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 20 2009 10:37 AM EDT

Moneybags: First prize goes to most liquid cash, Second to Highest Team NW, Third to Highest PR (someone could theoretically win two of these, therefore the prizes for second and third combined should match the first prize)

Decay, tats, and rare items allowed.

MonkeyMandate [Wasting Time] August 20 2009 10:39 AM EDT

a race. first to say 2mil MPR. everything except for decay allowed

winner winner August 20 2009 10:41 AM EDT

or maybe something like T35, killing a specific target

DoS August 20 2009 10:43 AM EDT

A tourney with a large bonus and access to only an ES and non-rare equipment. As many minions are you like, no decay.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 20 2009 10:49 AM EDT

Monopoly each time you go around you get to a different tier/

(you cant own squares) but each square allows something

e.g. Boardwalk would allow regular tats on that one player.
e.g. Marvin Gardens would allow SS

All four railroads let you use GA

These are examples.

Each time you pass go your assured at least 100k in prizes
Roll the dice once or twice a day depending on how you want the game to look like at the end.

ADD your own thoughts here slayer.[ , }

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 20 2009 10:50 AM EDT

The above idea is meant as a basis for an idea, you could make it more specific.

QBJohnnywas August 20 2009 10:55 AM EDT

I Spy For The FB Aye!

Would need Fire Familiars supplied to all entrants.

Only method of damage should be the Fire Familiar. All enchantments are banned. All other damage types including decay banned. NSCs are banned, but AoJ and Alatars are allowed if they can be gotten.

Which leaves only natural HP on minions and PL that can be used.....;)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] August 20 2009 12:00 PM EDT

I like that monopoly idea. You need some way to win or something though. tweak it some and it should turn into a very fun tourney.

QBOddBird August 20 2009 12:10 PM EDT

A limited growth tournament (i.e. you may continue to fight, but may not continue to grow past say 50k MPR) removing the most popular skills/spells/items as possibilities would be fun, just to force people to be creative. Wins could be based on the win v. total fights ratio.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- August 20 2009 4:38 PM EDT

=) All good ideas!

I'm with Novice/SK it's been a long time since we had a 'simple' tournament.

RaptorX August 20 2009 5:13 PM EDT

How about the most growth with your regular team during a super XP time? no starting with saved BA over 160 and no buying BA allowed.

They could win a gold star on their forehead, or an 'notch' to put on their belt, or shield to show how many tourneys they have won.!

OK well odd but I like odd ideas - Just throwing this out since I know nothing about the tourneys yet..
maybe best use of a Familiar to help a standard E M team - everyone starts the same and difference is the familiar they choose and how they train from there.. over a weeks time.

Newlin [SeeD] August 21 2009 12:29 AM EDT

Everyone runs a 4 minion team with a FF! Highest MPR wins.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 1:05 AM EDT

Now I know this is not possible...but I like the idea of 4 tats and 4 AOJ starting out equipment. Regular tournament rules besides these.

AdminShade August 21 2009 1:21 AM EDT

I've seen some nice ideas, some of which I could use, some of which would have to wait longer for me to make something nice out of it.

I'd like to see yet some more ideas! :)

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 2:29 AM EDT

I would like to see a proper tank tourney.

1 mil starting money. 1600BA starting BA. Unlimited BA total (optional).
Any number of minions. Must have at least one minion with BL or Archery.
Lesser tats allowed as is decay. Fireball and MM aren't allowed (it is a tank tourney).

Then we can do like we did in the UC tourney (T39) and do a bracket at the end of a week. Distribute prizes in a similar fashion. I myself would send an additional 50k to the person with the Highest Score, Highest PR and Highest MPR. (50k to each person who got the title)

[Jedi] Danludar August 21 2009 2:36 AM EDT

I like Nayab's idea. How about single tank tourney though. No rare weapons, but we can decide light tank heavy tank etc... and possibly make it so we can pick our armor set from the start. Could be a cool idea with some tweaks.

MaetYm [U F C {CB Style}] August 21 2009 2:42 AM EDT

I like Nayab's idea, a solid tank tourny.

QBJohnnywas August 21 2009 2:44 AM EDT

Tank tourney - but you would have to make no archery allowed - NO BOWS!

Otherwise melee based tanks wouldn't stand a chance most likely.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 3:00 AM EDT

Well we could change my idea like this.

Dan, I gave every one the CHOICE on how many minions they want. If they get multiple minions they sacrifice exp. concentration.

Make it that there is no RARE ranged weapons allowed.
I would make it that if you hired minions, it would have to be before 25k MPR. If you hire a minion AFTER that, you will be made to retire that minion.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 3:11 AM EDT

I would however make an exception when it comes to the ranged weapons.
You would be allowed to use the rare crossbows.
i.e. The Enforcer's Crossbow and Assassin's Crossbow.
Simply because they would nerf other tanks but wouldn't deal enough damage to really kill them.

QBJohnnywas August 21 2009 3:39 AM EDT

And if you really want to make it interesting make it so that the only things you can train are HP/ST/Dex and skills. NO ENCHANTMENTS OR DD. Not even AS for those multi minion teams.

That's how you run a tank team....;)

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 3:40 AM EDT

Sounds like early CB1.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 21 2009 3:45 AM EDT

Problem with that JW is that it sets too many limits for someone like me.
I would prefer variety over simplicity.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] August 21 2009 7:48 AM EDT

How's this

Single tank galore, you can train all skills, you can have all weapons, and all tattoo's, except the ToA.

All spells/Skills are limited by the choice of tattoo.
ToE means no DM
RoBF means no AMF
RoS means no GA
JiG means no UC
HaL means no Archery

No DD or DD familiars

Almaisky August 21 2009 7:51 AM EDT

I'd really like a melee tank tournament. I've always wanted to use a melee weapon, but I never could find a team that would actually survive ranged to used it xD.

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] August 21 2009 8:18 AM EDT

I would love to see a tourney with the following restrictions:

No Rare Items
No DD/EO/ED Spells
No Ranged Weapons
All Skills are Allowed

Starting BA: 160
BA Limit: None
Bonus %: 500 (To XP Only)

I'd call the Tourney: "NCB, Only Harder"

AdminShade August 28 2009 1:20 AM EDT

Need... more... ideas...

mexitl August 28 2009 1:43 AM EDT

A "post-season" tourney, based on how some sports playoffs work.

5 days of open season, but you can only attack fellow tourney members.

Top 16 by winning percentage go on to the post season.

In the post season, each player is paired off with another player, based on score (1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, 3 vs 14, etc.). Players can attack whoever they like, but only wins against their opponent count. Most number of wins vs. the opponent in that 24-hour period advances to the next round of play offs.

There should be no cap to the amount of BA that can accumulate, so that players can be strategic with their BA use. They may horde BA in early play-off rounds to use against more difficult opponents in later rounds, etc.

Any thoughts or other tweaks?

It could be double-elimination too. If you lose in an early round of play-offs, you move to the lower bracket, and the final fight is between the upper bracket and the lower bracket.

Newlin [SeeD] August 28 2009 1:45 AM EDT

I think running a tournament utilizing the jiggy would be nice. Although the fact that there is no lesser jiggy does present a problem...

AdminShade August 28 2009 1:46 AM EDT

This afternoon I'll reply to some of your ideas to either ask further questions or to make you rethink of it.

Drama [Just for fun] August 28 2009 2:05 AM EDT

Huge exp. bonus. First to bug the system with MPB (in memories of Krang)

Drama [Just for fun] August 28 2009 2:10 AM EDT

aka DAWG

Sickone August 28 2009 2:46 AM EDT

A 1-month tournament where

a) you have no BA cap
b) tournament characters can ONLY attack other tournament characters (a few "dummy" tournament characters of various MRP levels get introduced for the sole purpose of serving as targets at the starter levels)
c) tournament characters CAN NOT bid on auctions
d) tournament characters DO NOT get random drops
e) x25 to XP and cash bonus
f) everything else is the same as normal gameplay
g) winner is the one with the highest (score*3 + MPR*2 + PR) at the end

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 28 2009 6:33 AM EDT

Reflections of CB 1: The Return of Spid!

The most basic of everything that CB 1 had that we still have now!

The Object would be simple There would be 3 Brackets




If CB 1 Did not have it you cannot use it! Every one in each Bracket fights each other until the Top Three are announced. The Winner From the Top Three will be determined not by a Fight but by the average PR/MPR & Highest Stat Trained. This would balance the Mage and Tank and make the playing field even for the Archer as well. Of course this would be a week long and unlimited BA. As an Added Bonus whichever one can beat the Todd/Spydah recreation 3 times consecutively would get an uber prize >:)

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 28 2009 6:48 AM EDT

Well in retrospect maybe a Month long Tourney and have it end on Nov 3 the CB1 B-Day and have the Uber Prize Given by the man himself Jon!

AdminShade August 28 2009 7:15 AM EDT

Serialkiller: highest score wins is a nice and simple 'in between' Tournament. Not what I was looking for but nice to have in between other ones. I'd then be looking for highest score in 1 week time.

novice: nice and original. What would happen if the player with highest NW would also win that for PR (considering PR = MPR + NW)? then you'd have 2 first prizes?

Admiralkiller: monopoly, also original. How would the rolling of the dice go?

JohnnyWas: 4 minion teams with Fire Familiars you say? strange but could be fun!
Newlin: I've combined your idea into Johnny's idea.

OddBird: maximum MPR and wins based on amount of battles consumed to gain that MPR? sounds experienced!

Nayab: Tank Tournament, old school! I dislike Decay in such a tourney though because it's not really tankish...
JohnnyWas: indeed, no archery allowed then.

JohnnyWas / Admiralkiller: Early CB1 tournament you say. Explain more details, I like it.

Henk Obama: Single Tank galore with RoS makes no sense. Excluding DD familiars should also exclude Jig and Hal (both have no lesser btw)
Almaisky: A rule could be that the X of your ranged weapon could never be higher than the X on your melee weapon to solve this?

Prof. Ruud Lubbers: McGyver Tournament? (he/she who makes best use of skills) Sounds interesting, any minion cap?

mexitl: a Tournament based on a sport (like the football / baseball). Sounds doable and could be fun.

Trippeux de Voyages: highest MPB wins, simple setup, always fun.

Sickone: I think there wouldn't be enough tournament characters to make this work. The bottomfish would always be the bottomfish => no fun.

Zenai: CB1 based tournament could be a very nice one, contact JohnnyWas and Admiralkiller to set up some details. I'm interested.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 28 2009 8:41 AM EDT

since i can start my champions online character in less than an hour, i thought perhaps we could do a superhero tournament. extremely fast growth with a ladder at the end that determines half of the points.

the other half of the points would come from your back story with the community judging the top 3 through a poll. we could have a winner for each of those as well as an over all winner or prizes to the top 3 in each or something along those lines.

you can train anything, but it must work into your back story and you can only use store spawned gear.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 28 2009 10:06 AM EDT

I had a dream about this one last night...Everyone is a toxic being and have to grow in order to live. So they always seek out other toxic beings. If they stay in one area too long they will kill them selves with toxicity

Everyone starts out on a grid 40x40 or 30x30 or whatever...could be a diamond/square/rectangle/octogon etc etc

-A player must move once a day.(or they will kill themselves with toxicity.)
-Random prizes are in random areas on the grid.(to be won as end prizes)
-1600BA. Cap*
-When two beings meet on the map they must fight. (best out of 7?) and post results. Winner gains 200BA added to their BA cap. Loser is eliminated (or 2 losses = eliminated)<if 2 losses. Two players may not fight each other one after another.
-Terrain could vary through out map to improve movement or decrease. EG.. Plains=3 movement spaces, Hills=2 movement spaces, Mountains=1 movement spaces.
-I am not sure how you could implement this but terrains could provide
attack and defensive bonus depending on which one your sitting on or attacking from.
-You could take everyone's movement in the same order everyday or first come first serve
-All players must fight at least one other once every 5 days.
-Beings cannot enter a area that they, or others have been in before.
-Prizes go out to last 4.
-Winner is last man standing.
-You could make your own map,or use several games to make one and use their map editors in a zoomed out mode.
-Each time you win you could gain some cash.(as a final reward)
-Obviously every great idea can be improved upon and tweaked.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 28 2009 10:10 AM EDT

Oh yea Fighting style could be chosen from one of the wonderful suggestions above That would suite these beings.

AdminShade August 30 2009 1:44 PM EDT

dudemus: superheroes would be a nice one, though the entrants would have to submit their story before starting the tournament or afterwards?

If they submit afterwards, they might bend their own rules ;)

AK: survive and escape? also nice
