T46: Blender of the Dead 2 (in Contests)


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 20 2009 11:41 PM EST

Rules



You, a group of employees at Zed Inc., will progress through several different parts of the city in an attempt to escape the havoc that has broken out at the laboratory just hours ago. Each portion of the city contains different areas which you may search in exchange for using AP. Every day your AP recharges and you may continue on or search your current location further.

Every scenario will have the following elements:
Travel route to different scenarios
Searchable areas
Fortifiable sections
Mini-boss battles, should you be unlucky enough to come across the boss in your searches.


While searching an area, you may discover many different things:
Survivors! (A dead survivor will be revived.)
Weapons (new tiers of weapons)
Armors (new tiers of armor)
Supplies (money)
Ambushes (a mini-boss battle will initiate)
Random encounters (a survivor may become infected)


In addition, every day there is a base 50% chance that one survivor will become infected, which can go up or down depending on the route you take. An infected survivor will take three days to turn completely to a zombie.

When infected, a survivor can choose from a few actions:
Kill yourself. You will keep all money earned up to this point, plus 1/5 of the prize money that survivors earn by continuing onward. (See: Prizes)

Go off on your own. You will eventually turn, but will not attack your comrades in the process.

Stay and turn. You will turn into a zombie and attack your comrades in the process. When a player turns they will be treated as a mini-boss encounter, but with a 50% base chance of turning a survivor they defeat. They may only turn one survivor in this manner. If you manage to kill a survivor, you will earn 100k.


Survivors can choose from the following actions which take no AP:
If a room has been fortified, survivors can rest safe from attack. This will decrease the likelyhood of having a member infected by 25%.

Press onward. Earn double AP for one day, but there is a 90% chance of a survivor becoming infected, and survivors will have an increased chance of encountering a mini-boss.

Survivors may elect any leader or group of leaders they wish.


Boss battles:
There is an 80% chance that a survivor who fails to defeat a boss will turn into a zombie. For every survivor who does defeat the boss, this 80% is reduced by 5%.


In every scenario, any player controlled zombie can choose to hide in a searchable area. If encountered, they are treated as a mini-boss.

Equipment Tiers:


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

[Tier 1]
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]
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]
Shotgun - All ranged weapons
Baseball bat - All melee weapons
Body armor - All armors [Tattoos included]

[Tier 4]
Plasma Rifle - All DD spells.
Titanium Battle Suit - All ED spells.
Psychic Dominator - All EO spells.


Your ultimate goal is to escape the city. There are several routes out of the city, but the status of these routes is unknown.



Prizes



For every day a survivor remains alive, they earn 100k.

If a survivor dies, but remains human, they continue to earn 1/5 of the money they would have earned until every survivor is dead, or the survivors escape.

If a survivor dies, and turns to a zombie, they keep what money they have earned already, and earn 10k every day as a zombie, as well as 100k per survivor that is killed by zombies.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 20 2009 11:53 PM EST

Looks good Slayer :)

Messbrutal November 20 2009 11:55 PM EST

This is going to be so epic, great job Slayer.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 21 2009 12:01 AM EST

A bit more info on starting EXP, it only goes to the first minion you hire.

QBRanger November 21 2009 12:03 AM EST

Unless I am wrong, that would give about 7500 MPR to start.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 21 2009 12:04 AM EST

Yeah, not too much this time, just want to test out the new toys I've gotten :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 21 2009 12:33 AM EST

We shall not falter, we shall survive!

Demigod November 21 2009 12:35 AM EST

Love it!

AdminShade November 21 2009 5:27 AM EST

Looks great, you've done good work so far! :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 21 2009 5:30 AM EST

Me is ready for anything!

adampurkis November 21 2009 6:58 AM EST

sounds fun! should be in on this one

Mythology November 21 2009 7:33 AM EST

Forgive me if i'm being stupid though how does this relate to CB characters? Like I read in the first one there was like a PR level you had to get above not to become a zombie or something?

AdminShade November 21 2009 7:35 AM EST

Perhaps this time there is none...

(0.0) [SeeD] November 21 2009 12:10 PM EST

err 11/23 is monday?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- November 21 2009 12:12 PM EST

Can't play, too busy with thanksgiving. Sucks.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] November 21 2009 12:12 PM EST

Count me in.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 21 2009 1:56 PM EST

The bosses and other players are all going to be characters you have to fight. Losing against them gives you a pretty good chance of turning zombie.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 21 2009 1:59 PM EST

In short, not being able to defeat the bosses is going to be a lot more of a problem this time around.

Mythology November 21 2009 2:39 PM EST

I see, cool :)

Wraithlin November 21 2009 3:38 PM EST

How do we decide the actions to take, is there a survivor leader in this one? And once we become infected I assume we just private chat our chosen action.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 21 2009 3:48 PM EST

There will be a leader, you can vote now or after the tournament begins. And yes infected players will communicate with me via PM or CM.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 21 2009 3:48 PM EST

We need to decide on a leader, or group of leaders who will make the decisions. Everyone's input will always be welcome I am sure though.

Demigod November 21 2009 3:51 PM EST

Or we could just decide to vote and have a leader to act as a tie breaker and officiator.

AdminShade November 21 2009 3:53 PM EST

I would be in favor of a team of leaders, perhaps 3 players.
Mostly because of the simple fact that someone just might lose connection due to whatever cause.

adampurkis November 21 2009 5:28 PM EST

yeah thats true i think shade makes a good point, people might not be able to get on one day, so a couple of leaders is probably a good idea.

im looking forward to this tournament, sounds pretty interesting!

Wraithlin November 21 2009 9:52 PM EST

Well I didn't play the last one, so I don't know who did well, if you don't mind posting if you survived the last one, and you'd like to be a leader let us know. Then we can take a vote after we get some choices.

DoS [Demon Forging] November 21 2009 10:00 PM EST

I'll volunteer to be one of the leaders. :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 21 2009 10:02 PM EST

Me, and OB were two of the 4 survivors.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] November 21 2009 10:05 PM EST

I was one of the survivors as well.

Admiralkiller November 21 2009 10:34 PM EST

I was an Ambushing Zed :-P. Or if you prefer "The Backstabbing at McD's"

Anyways I am in, this will be fun! This is the only tournament I have woken up in the middle of the night to spend BA.

QBOddBird November 22 2009 3:44 PM EST


I'll be back to play this again.

Wraithlin November 22 2009 3:49 PM EST

Well it starts in about 22 hours, and we only have 3 volunteers for leaders, and they were all survivors, so my vote is for Nem, Titan and Deif

QBOddBird November 22 2009 3:52 PM EST

I was the leader last time. :P

I'm willing to do that again or be part of a group of leaders, either is fine with me. Either way, the suggestions come from the entire group, and are simply voiced by those chosen as "leaders."

Which leads me to the question: if there are multiple leaders, does a majority of them have to post for a decision to go through? Can only one? What if only 2 post, and they have conflicting decisions?

AdminShade November 22 2009 4:41 PM EST

I'm having one of my wisdom teeth removed on December 1st and most likely will be at home for a few days so should be able to get many BA in.

Oddbird and Nemerizt will once again prove doing very good in this Tournament.
If these 2 fine warriors would both be up for Leaders I'd like to join them if they'd have me. Otherwise I'd like to hear of other options. :)

QBOddBird November 22 2009 5:15 PM EST

A Nemerizt/OddBird/Shade tournament is a tournament that nobody loses. We are the pwnagers. The rest of you are pwnsies. The three of us will defeat all oppwnents.

I can't really think of any more good puns (pwns?) but feel free to chime in with more.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 22 2009 5:18 PM EST

You are all going to get pwned by zombies.


I made a funny.

Mythology November 23 2009 9:16 AM EST

Ive read the help file on tournaments, though thought I heard in chat, is there a rule against sending equipment / money from your tournament character to your main?

DoS [Demon Forging] November 23 2009 9:19 AM EST

Myth, if you try to transfer anything from your tournament character to any other character, you get a message that says that it is not possible.

Mythology November 23 2009 9:22 AM EST

Ah ic

QBOddBird November 23 2009 11:52 AM EST

I think we should start casting votes now so that we can have a leader(s) by the time we have to make a decision.

Admiralkiller November 23 2009 11:55 AM EST

I vote Nem and OB...But in order not to hurt anyone's feelings that's all I vote for. Nem cuz he has won 3 out of last 5 and OB because he was our leader last Zed tourny.

Zenai November 23 2009 12:06 PM EST

Guess I will join expect nothing from me >;-)

DoS [Demon Forging] November 23 2009 2:51 PM EST

I have to drop out of a leadership role, if I am in one. I'm too busy this week.

AdminShade November 23 2009 2:53 PM EST

I vote Nem and OB.

adampurkis November 23 2009 2:53 PM EST

i don't really mind who the leaders are, shade's idea sounded fine to me, or any others that wanted to be leader.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 23 2009 7:38 PM EST

How does the fortifying work. As in how much AP would it cost and can we do it in any room?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 23 2009 7:40 PM EST

Only certain rooms can be fortified, the first map has none. They will cost AP depending on factors such as how many entrance points there are, how large the room is, and how close to the key points of the map they are.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 23 2009 7:42 PM EST

Thanks

AdminShade November 24 2009 1:13 PM EST

What exactly can we do with the Revive we have gotten?

Revive a fallen participant but if that one is infected?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 24 2009 1:14 PM EST

Revive can be used on anyone who is dead, but not a zombie. If an infected suicides, he can be revived and "cured" of the infection.

Wraithlin November 24 2009 3:59 PM EST

When you say:

"Body armor - All armors [Tattoos included]"

Do you mean all tattoos can be used?

Lesser and normal.

Or do you just mean that tattoos are now available but you can only use lessers?

I put a bid on a normal because I took it as the first meaning, but someone pointed out that it might just be lessers.

Thanks.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 24 2009 4:03 PM EST

It should be just lesser tattoos as regular ones aren't allowed at all.

Wraithlin November 24 2009 4:06 PM EST

If that is the case and serialkiller/nem are correct, would it be possible to cancel my bet and give me back my money as I misunderstood the intent.

AdminShade November 24 2009 4:10 PM EST

If you had read the general tournament rules (or verified before bidding) then you'd have known normal tattoos are never allowed until mentioned otherwise.

Slayer could outbid you, or you could auction the tattoo back into the game for a slightly lower price than you bid on.

Wraithlin November 24 2009 4:13 PM EST

thanks for the understanding, i'll outbid myself.

Wraithlin November 24 2009 4:14 PM EST

nvm, not allowed to outbid my tournament char.

CombatSquirrel November 25 2009 12:14 PM EST

Are the bosses in this tourney preset, or does slayer look at the group as a whole then make a boss?

AdminShade November 25 2009 12:15 PM EST

I think Slayer has some preset bosses already :)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 25 2009 12:18 PM EST

I do. They are a secret.

BHT November 25 2009 12:18 PM EST

The boss will either be made (use the new xp feature to make it a fair battle) or chosen from a group of characters (taken from banned players,etc.), I would imagine.

CombatSquirrel November 25 2009 12:21 PM EST

So if everybody does better than expected in the tourney or does horrible, the boss will remain the same in terms of beatableness?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 25 2009 12:28 PM EST

If it is impossible to beat I may tweak the strategy, but yeah, they were built for a certain level of difficulty based on how long it should have taken you to get to the point where you fight them.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 November 25 2009 12:29 PM EST

And of course, if you do come up against an insanely hard boss, you can always opt to run and fight it another day, or try to find a way around it.

CombatSquirrel November 25 2009 12:34 PM EST

Thanks, I wanted to know that

Admiralkiller November 25 2009 10:44 PM EST

I hope you don't go off of expectant MPR of players like Nem who seems to always exceed my expectations :-P

QBOddBird November 25 2009 10:55 PM EST

I need answers RAWRRRRR my unspent BA demands it!!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 27 2009 5:56 PM EST

At tier 4 is decay allowed?

AdminShade November 28 2009 8:48 PM EST

I'm positive this was mentioned somewhere but:

A player who has turned to a zombie, will have it's tier capped. Is this at the point of being infected or at the point of being turned?

BHT December 6 2009 12:16 PM EST

Thanks for the Tourney Slayer. Great Story too

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 6 2009 9:56 PM EST

Very nice tourney. I wish we could have done something to beat that boss though. Getting through Nightmares was a lot of fun.

Demigod December 6 2009 9:59 PM EST

I'm kicking myself for making two fatal mistakes in this tourney: I blew the initial load of BA, and I put way too much money into a low level weapon. These cooperative tourneys are still my favorite, and I hope to see another zombie tourney soon.

Zenai December 6 2009 10:07 PM EST

Demi same here but I made a 3rd as well......I started this Tourney on my phone it was a very very bad choice on my part. We live and learn right bro X-D
