AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 6 2009 7:55 PM EST

DoS [Demon Forging] December 6 2009 7:59 PM EST

Sweet! :D

What kind of bonus will we be looking at?

DoS [Demon Forging] December 6 2009 8:00 PM EST

Also, could we know the stats on that BoTh?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 6 2009 10:26 PM EST

will the targets stats or gear change any during the tournament or is it all fixed as it is now?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 6 2009 10:27 PM EST

Huge, two weeks


Please post here if you're planning on playing in this tournament

DoS [Demon Forging] December 6 2009 10:28 PM EST

I plan on playing, for real this time.

QBRanger December 6 2009 10:29 PM EST

I plan.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 6 2009 10:30 PM EST

I don't know yet if I'll be leaving everything the same, but it's likely.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 6 2009 10:35 PM EST

Salketer [big bucks] December 7 2009 1:22 AM EST

Just wondering, any prize for participation?

I plan to play anyway.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 7 2009 1:24 AM EST

If you get 80% of the top MPR you get 100k. That's not too hard to do either.

AdminShade December 7 2009 1:34 AM EST

I will definitely going to try my luck here! :p

Apoclyspe December 7 2009 2:42 AM EST

I'll give it a shot.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 7 2009 3:52 AM EST

Oh hell yeah! :D

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 3:55 AM EST

So the only weapon available is UC?

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 3:58 AM EST

I'm in by the way. ;)

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 4:00 AM EST

Umm how big are those DBs?

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 4:02 AM EST

Hmm. Not too shabby to reduce a +150 weapon and 5 mill dex to two hits.....

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 7 2009 4:03 AM EST

(Nice showcase for the new GoM as well! And the MC as well I suppose. ;) )

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 6:27 AM EST

Wow. That's a tough old tank. And going in nekkid with only Helms and SoC for company...that's going to be hard....

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 6:39 AM EST

This will be a challenge but i am. Looking forward to it :)

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 7 2009 6:45 AM EST

I've been waiting for this one :D

blackshadowshade December 7 2009 8:05 AM EST

Wow, that is one huge tank. Good luck dodging those hits! Even my JKF with 141 Evasion was being double hit in the first round of combat.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 7 2009 8:08 AM EST

well yeah, he still had at least 150+

QBRanger December 7 2009 8:53 AM EST

So the only weapon available is UC?


Or can one use BL with a weapon from the store?

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 8:58 AM EST

Ah good catch. I saw buying and selling not being allowed, but automatically discounted the store...

QBRanger December 7 2009 8:59 AM EST

A THF might be a winner vs UC given the SoC.

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 9:00 AM EST

Would need to be a pretty big weapon though. My big morg (although I don't have BL) isn't big enough with 4 mill strength (I stripped my char) to do enough damage....

Admiralkiller December 7 2009 9:00 AM EST

Not 100% but I may try

Joel December 7 2009 10:21 AM EST

I'm in! I'll be in every tournament ^.^

AdminShade December 7 2009 12:13 PM EST

Ranger: A THF might be a winner vs UC given the SoC.


Oh would it? a THF is a Hafted weapon, not a Hammer Class so it does not give the secondary effect.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 12:16 PM EST

I don't think I'll be allowing even store bought weapons, despite the fact I don't see them having much of a chance. Consider this a UC race basically.

Now the real question... should I disappoint GL and disallow EC.

AdminShade December 7 2009 12:20 PM EST

should I disappoint GL and disallow EC.


Yes you should =)

AdminShade December 7 2009 12:44 PM EST

How to beat 8 mil HP, 8 mil ST, +3xx PTH with UC and a SoC...

ouch, that bonus better be huge indeed!

QBRanger December 7 2009 12:52 PM EST

Will EC really make that much of a difference?

With 3.6k dex, one can easily outdex this monster.

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 1:09 PM EST

But 8 mill ST and a x30000 weapon (after BL) gives hits averaging 1.5 mill a piece...If you cant dodge those you are toast in a very short time....

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 7 2009 1:36 PM EST

Now the real question... should I disappoint GL and disallow EC.


Nuts! Bad Johnny! :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 7 2009 1:38 PM EST

Yeah, it wasn't ever about playing the DEX game with EC.

But making those massive hits managable, and also reducing the amount he heals back from his BTH.

As don't think it'll be possible to reduce his PTH (from 300 Weapon plus gloves and cloak) enough for him to 'whiff'.

DoS [Demon Forging] December 7 2009 1:45 PM EST

<novice> Think of it as a two week NCB


Who's excited now? :D!

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 2:41 PM EST

Gimme EC!! For GL's sake!!!!

AdminShade December 7 2009 2:57 PM EST

Is this tournament this simple? I think I have figured it all out, however I think I cannot spend my BA efficient enough to make it work as 1st.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 2:58 PM EST

It is supposed to be simple Shade... it's a race basically.

There are however a number of different choices for strat, and your guess is as good as mine as to which will get their first.

Joel December 7 2009 3:15 PM EST

The way I've been thinking about this tourney is that its like a race to a giant meat-grinder. "Whoever jumps into the meat-grinder, head-first, wins!!" Really, I don't see a way that I can beat that guy with the tools I'll get, but I guess I'll find out if its possible, the minute someone beats him! I really need more strat experience in this game -.-

(0.0) December 7 2009 3:19 PM EST

will there be another December tournament?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 7 2009 3:21 PM EST

It won't be that hard to beat him.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 7 2009 3:23 PM EST

By two week NCB, I hope you mean 2 week NCB with 4x the bonus :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 3:43 PM EST

I meant the results would be similar to a six month NCB in two weeks

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 3:46 PM EST

The bonus is that big?!?!?!? O.O

(0.0) December 7 2009 3:50 PM EST

so somewhere around 5000% bonus

BHT December 7 2009 3:59 PM EST

So if the bonus is that big it will be possible for us to reach 3mil MPR+? That's not really needed IMO. But it will sure be fun.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 December 7 2009 4:02 PM EST

will there be another December tournament?


Yes.

BHT December 7 2009 4:03 PM EST

Also, it would be equvilant to a 6 month NUB since tourney bonuses effect monetary gains as well. There's gonna be a ton of money being made. Everyone stock up rares!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 December 7 2009 4:04 PM EST

Auctions will not be allowed in this tournament.

BHT December 7 2009 4:11 PM EST

Oh interesting

BHT December 7 2009 4:13 PM EST

Dang missed his other rule post. I see now. Now to think up a strategy.

QBOddBird December 7 2009 4:21 PM EST

Will this tournament start again with a BA pool, or with the starting 160?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 4:23 PM EST

gheesh... you guys don't want any surprises

starting BA will be 160

QBJohnnywas December 7 2009 4:24 PM EST

Come on Nov, you know this place: every decimal point for these peeps...

BHT December 7 2009 4:25 PM EST

Would be more challenging and fun to start with a small amount or even none IMO.

QBOddBird December 7 2009 4:30 PM EST

I wuz curious. T-T meanie

Zenai December 7 2009 8:59 PM EST

Is this regulated for a Single Minion Battle or can we have multiple Minions on our Char?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2009 9:13 PM EST

no restrictions on minion number

AdminShade December 8 2009 8:14 AM EST

SK: there should be another Tournament after T47, and T49 has also already been planned.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 8 2009 8:17 AM EST

no restrictions on minion number


Does every minion get a HG and SoC?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 8 2009 9:16 AM EST

can we get all of the rules in one post, preferably the first post in this thread?

AdminShade December 8 2009 9:54 AM EST

Does every minion get a HG and SoC?


I'd say 1 per player.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] December 9 2009 3:39 AM EST

Meh!

Go Go 4 minion GS Team. ;)

QBOddBird December 9 2009 9:41 PM EST

Dammit...I won't be around an internet connection during the first portion of this tournament. :(

Sigh. Kick some butt, guys! =\

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 9 2009 9:45 PM EST

/me picks up the OB torch and runs farther into the labyrinth.

kevlar December 9 2009 9:52 PM EST

I'll be away during the 2nd half, OB. Too bad we can't combine forces :)

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 9 2009 9:57 PM EST

I essentially missed 3 days worth of BA in the Zombie tournament and came 5th, surely you can make up for the disadvantage OB!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 9 2009 10:17 PM EST

all tournaments are different though and with this one it will be about starting on time and burning all of your ba....and strategy! ; )

Wasp [Demon Forging] December 11 2009 3:30 PM EST

I might join this tourny : )

AdminShade December 11 2009 4:08 PM EST

ODdbird and kevlar: why not just enter anyway for the fun?

I know I won't be winning but that does not stop me from trying / just entering anyway. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 12 2009 10:31 AM EST

QBRanger December 12 2009 11:59 AM EST

I would hope that for the first 40 or so fights we are allowed to use a weapon to get enough xp to get UC going.

trying to get that added to the first post now, thanks for mentioning it Ranger

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 12 2009 9:14 PM EST

It is, however only from the store and items should not be resold to the store

QBRanger December 13 2009 2:18 PM EST

I accidentally bid on an item in auctions.

Meant to bid with my normal character but was on my T one.

AdminShade December 13 2009 3:27 PM EST

Have someone else outbid you and bid with your normal char?
or arrange someone to buy it from auctions with the same price?

Lochnivar December 13 2009 3:32 PM EST

to quote a wise man's insight from another thread:
QBRanger December 12 5:00 PM EST
I think that should be an automatic DQ.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 13 2009 10:25 PM EST

Just so there is no question, winning on a fight after someone else has weakened the target is not allowed, I'm not Slayer, and this isn't a Z tourney.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2009 12:47 AM EST

I would say the time limit is equal to time left in tourney.

TourneyPrizes December 14 2009 12:47 AM EST

No, but I imagine you might want to beat him prior to the end of the tourney

adampurkis December 14 2009 6:19 AM EST

There any limit to the number of these prizes? Or can everyone get one, if we can beat Dead End of course. ;)

You are one of the top characters in the tourney.

Im just not gonna have the time to keep up...

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 16 2009 2:08 AM EST

I did some testing and found that a level 4.8 million EC. Hardly effects this monster. On top of that i don't think you can beat it with evasion, especially when he has over 300+. Maybe a combination of each? Even then you would have to get lucky..

i seem to remember a suggestion i made to slayer that the participation prize be awarded based on battles fought rather than mpr, score or net worth. i thought that might bring in more people who may not be strategy hounds or have time seek out those sweet targets.

the winners are already getting rewarded for their extra efforts and it would be nice if more people stayed in the tournaments rather than getting discouraged from falling behind and just giving up.

i even thought i remembered slayer agreeing to it and planning on changing it on the wiki tournament page, i could be wrong though but if so i would really like to see such a change even if it meant less was given out to everyone for participation but more participation prizes being given. ; )

Indeed, if you'd gain 100k (for example) for spending at least 50% of the #1 player amount, that would certainly be a better incentive!

I think this was talked about and voted against, because it's really

easy to find a few targets and just lose to them constantly and burn

your ba in not even 3 minutes.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 20 2009 4:01 PM EST

kef, the top person in this tournament has used almost 5k ba. there is no way with a cap of 160 that anyone could spend 3 minutes and burn 2500 ba. it would at least require logging in once a day and burning the full 160 for around 16 days.

that in my mind is participation. rewarding people for performance is fine and that is what the winners get. if we are going to have an actual participation prize it should award people for participation though!

when people get a large chunk of ba, that would be different but surely we can still find a way to award participation and increase players in the tournaments and encourage them to stick with a tournament instead of dropping out.

AdminShade December 20 2009 4:05 PM EST

...because it's really easy to find a few targets and just lose to them constantly...


We are fully capable of inspecting characters and check if they at least made an effort instead of making useless fights. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 20 2009 4:06 PM EST

that is true as well, especially with more tournament admins now! ; )

DoS [Demon Forging] December 20 2009 4:06 PM EST

It is going to be even worse when myself or Nemerizt decide to hire the last 2 minions.

QBRanger December 20 2009 9:36 PM EST

What if nobody beats The Labryinth by next Saturday?

With all its nice items and our lack of them, I think this may be the scenario in 6 days.

AdminNightStrike December 20 2009 9:44 PM EST

I thought people already beat him...

Joel December 20 2009 9:45 PM EST

Impossible! Tell me who!!

QBRanger December 20 2009 9:47 PM EST

Nobody in the tourney is even close to beating it.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 20 2009 9:47 PM EST

That was Dead End NS.

If no one defeats TL then no one wins.

QBRanger December 20 2009 9:50 PM EST

If no one defeats TL then no one wins.


That would really suck.

Joel December 20 2009 9:52 PM EST

I'm going to try to grow as fast as possible until the last hour, and then I'm going to check my character to see if I have enough MPR for a 8,221,500 effect on my EC and still have enough strength to do 8,221,500 damage in 50 rounds. Thats my plan! It seems to be the only option, too. >.>

QBRanger December 20 2009 10:02 PM EST

I highly doubt LR can beat it without using EC.:)

deifeln8: Ahh yay, Zenai is going to mess with my CB again<===== It is because of comments like this that I feel like there should be a completely different lineup of opponents for Tourney's.


I just happened to be the last of a long line of people to farm him, and not so well at that. But to be made to feel as if it is personal takes takes all the fun out of the Tourney.

I am now officially done. Please Retire my T-Char. No questions, No aww come-ons just Retire my T-Char. Thanks.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 22 2009 7:44 AM EST

Just don't leave CB as well Zen, would hate to lose your unique ideas and opinions.

Zenai December 22 2009 8:42 AM EST

Nothing that Drastic WW! I have had several reasons to quit the tourney, Chief amoung them I'm sick as a dog. Losing sleep while sick is not good. However this last bit in chat combined with CMs just took the last of the wind out of my sails. Besides it's not like I was doing that well any way. With players like Nem, Ranger, MK in the running I knew that I never had a chance of winning. It was all fun for me, with that taken away what reason did I have to continue?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 22 2009 10:32 AM EST

1) boooooooo
2) messing with folks scores in this tourney could have quasi-intended consequences regarding how score and tournaments work

Zenai December 22 2009 11:40 AM EST

No offense intended but unbeknownst intentions should affect my decision how again?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 22 2009 12:53 PM EST

DoS should just hope someone not in the tourney doesn't farm retrain and farm him, lowering his score. Retraining, then lowering it some more. For no reason but to simply hurt him. Sounds like a flaw in the system. But, not to Jon.

QBOddBird December 22 2009 12:57 PM EST

2) messing with folks scores in this tourney could have quasi-intended consequences regarding how score and tournaments work


Wait, did I miss something here? Is someone manipulating tournaments to achieve their own goals regarding the score system? Or did I totally misread that? >:|

37k hp left =x nice

DoS [Demon Forging] December 23 2009 12:32 AM EST

The HP on the last minion doesn't matter at all. The purpose of that minion was just to survive past the death so that it wouldn't be a draw. It was a mistake to train PL on that minion, but in the end it didn't really matter.

Miandrital December 23 2009 12:34 AM EST
