Thanks NS for all the Tournament changes! (in Off-topic)


AdminShade January 16 2010 12:49 PM EST

I'd hereby like to thank NightStrike publicly for all the recent additions and changes he has made to a lot of parts for the Tournament in which the T-mode people can make more and better Tournaments for the players!



Thanks a lot! :)

QBRanger January 16 2010 12:49 PM EST

The changes are very impressive.

Salketer [big bucks] January 16 2010 12:51 PM EST

Yay!!! Go NS

AdminNightStrike January 16 2010 12:51 PM EST

Thank me when it starts translating into more tournament players :)

I would like to see feedback from those that do not participate in tourneys as to why they do not.

Perhaps we can adjust things to make them more appealing to everyone.

I would like to see feedback from those that do not participate in tourneys as to why they do not.

I am participating this time around, but the main reasons why I usually don't are because I don't have the time to burn BA with two teams, and because I normally miss the start date and feel I can't catch up.

It has nothing to do with the quality of the tournaments themselves, which I feel are great.

Tournament NUB.

With the ability to give new T characters XP to start, I will have such a mechanism for my tourney. Each day starting characters will get a bit more starting XP.

However there are downsides to starting later but this should diminish it a bit.

Don't forget with separate items and no xfer, we'll be likely to be able to do starting money tourneys as well.

Joel January 16 2010 3:45 PM EST

I'm starting to feel kind of tired of constant tourneys.
My main reason for feeling this way is that my BA regen rate is essentially that of my Tourney character and not that of my main character.
I have to manage my sleep based on the BA regen rate of my tourney character instead of being able to sleep over 8 hours with my newly acquired 6/20 BA regen rate.
I would never feel like skipping a tourney if my tourney character's BA regen rate was always the same as my main character's.
What would be the downside of such a tourney feature?

Miandrital January 16 2010 4:31 PM EST

Sorry, but what are the changes?

DoS January 16 2010 4:34 PM EST

Common folk don't know yet ;). The last change we know about is the starting exp. :)

Not everyone has a 6/20 regen rate...

AdminShade January 16 2010 4:53 PM EST

Joel, good news then because we can make tournaments which have a fixed amount of BA in which you can miss some of your replenishes.

QBRanger January 16 2010 5:29 PM EST

For those who do not yet know.

The following is the latest addition to tournies:

1) No ability to use/abuse auctions. A closed system.
2) A new tourney only store where the prices of items and what items will be sold can be set. Including supporter items.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] January 16 2010 5:30 PM EST

Also with the starting exp you start out in a better regen instead of necessarily 10 ba.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2010 5:32 PM EST

so the tourney store was added?!
Thank you NS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joel January 16 2010 5:37 PM EST

I forgot about those limited BA tourneys Shade, thanks for reminding me! As for not everyone having 6/20 BA regen, it won't really make a difference to your schedule, regardless of your BA regen, because your BA regen will match your main character's regen. If you're used to having a 8/20 or 7/20 BA regen rate, then you won't have to readjust to a new schedule, because you're already used to you main character's regen rate, right?
Anyway, that not an issue if the tourney has a limited amount of BA that you can spend.

The new closed auctions feature will prevent other players from making tons of money off of tourney characters, right?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 16 2010 5:41 PM EST

Tourney characters will be completely barred from using auctions or the normal store.

DoS January 16 2010 5:43 PM EST

This makes for an epic test character as well! :D

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 16 2010 10:26 PM EST

Score drain... but I'm hoping that gets a fix too

AdminNightStrike January 16 2010 10:55 PM EST

The regen thing is simple. CB looks at your largest character (probably as of the last cache flush) and sets the regen based on that.

I hope to be able to fix this soon, but will definitely need help from Jon.

BarCap January 17 2010 6:31 AM EST

no more profiteering off tournaments then :(

Joel January 17 2010 7:04 AM EST

Thank you Nightstrike! Both the different regen rates between characters and the enormous price gouging of items have been grating on me ^.^
Now, perhaps players will join more tourneys, seeing as thats the only way that one can make money from it anymore!

[RX3]Cotillion January 17 2010 12:16 PM EST

Would there be any possible way to create an option that changes the refresh rate of BA from x/20 to x/10?

Just curious.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 17 2010 12:20 PM EST

woot for a more closed tournament system! woot, woot, woot!
