    Sweet T and...
    No attacking of characters with less than 60% of their PR in score

    Good rule

    Sickone April 1 2010 6:37 PM EDT

    Also pretty hard to enforce, and very easy to ACCIDENTALLY break.

    DoS April 1 2010 6:40 PM EDT

    A possible revision would be that if we fight a character that breaks that rule, it isn't counted on the last 24 hours?

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 1 2010 6:43 PM EDT

    Enforcement will not be immediate disqualification; you'll simply get a warning and if you continue fighting the character after that point, then I will disqualify.

    As for the last 24 hours idea, I specifically don't want the winning target to be a gimped character :)

    winner winner April 1 2010 6:44 PM EDT

    what do you mean target? Are there specific targets or just any character is fine.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 1 2010 6:45 PM EDT

    When I say target I am just referring to any character you might fight.

    winner winner April 1 2010 6:46 PM EDT

    No attacking of characters with less than 60% of their PR in score
    Does that mean I can't attack any character with 1m PR and 550k score? Or just for targets?

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 1 2010 6:52 PM EDT

    The rule applies to all fights, against potential winning targets or just for normal XP gain. Perhaps the percentage is too high, if anyone can link me to some commonly used targets in tournaments so I can get an idea for score:PR ratios, that would help greatly.

    Mythology April 1 2010 7:59 PM EDT

    Id suggest rather than being able to tie, it is the first person to beat the certain character

    AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 1 2010 8:13 PM EDT

    I think this is a great idea for a tourney. Having the potential for many different highest targets is great.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 2 2010 12:38 PM EDT

    Changed the percentage to 40%, updated rules on ties.

    Any other thoughts?

    TheHatchetman April 2 2010 1:20 PM EDT

    Leave clause for questionability. If your target is in fact a questionable one, even if it still technically fits under the above guidelines, poo for you. An "if i don't feel comfortable with the win, you get nada". Otherwise, it'll just be a fresher gimp that takes home the prize.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 2 2010 1:23 PM EDT

    Every potential winning target will be checked regardless of score:PR ratio to see if it is a legitimate target.

    DoS April 2 2010 2:11 PM EDT

    Are tats going to be in the store?

    Either way, I already have 2 possible strats in mind :)

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 2 2010 2:54 PM EDT

    Almost every rare item will be in the store, prices may vary, see local retailers for details.

    Pushed back one day, some issues with tournaments need to be resolved

    Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 3 2010 1:29 AM EDT

    Thanks. I personally hate having tourneys start on bonus exp time...makes it lag terribly.

    Unappreciated Misnomer April 4 2010 2:24 AM EDT

    So whats the deal? Its past the start time and I cannot make a character was this T delayed?

    lol sry i didnt read that post, thanks for pointing it out

    winner winner April 4 2010 12:10 PM EDT

    T51 started too early

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 4 2010 12:52 PM EDT

    Started on time, Noon today?

    winner winner April 4 2010 1:17 PM EDT

    my bad

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 4 2010 2:49 PM EDT

    Anyone testing NW upgrade values in this tournament, send me a CM for some cash.

    JSCarnage April 9 2010 11:52 AM EDT

    Does the tournament still finish at noon on Saturday, or is it now Sunday since it started one day later?

    winner winner April 9 2010 11:55 AM EDT

    ends on the 11th

    Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 10 2010 9:03 PM EDT

    I am going to assume multiple taps are not counted; however, it is not mentioned in the rules. Is my assumption correct or should I save 100 BA to try to beat someone?

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 10 2010 9:07 PM EDT

    Multiple taps are not counted.

    AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 10 2010 9:13 PM EDT

    We are at the point where we should start posting our highest now right?

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 10 2010 9:15 PM EDT

    Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 11 2010 12:05 PM EDT

    I sucked I finished with around 300 ba unspent and had about 50 available at 12:00 ending time...also my highest does not appear to beat even 3rd. If for some reason someone fails, check my last farm It may be 4th so by default move up. I don't remember the name and it' won't let me check my tourny characters recent fights list.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 11 2010 11:11 PM EDT

    The winners:

    Natasha. defeated KoTD for first place!

    JSCarnage defeated Cau for second place!

    AdmiralKiller defeated First Aid for third place!

    Prizes will go out soon, along with participation prizes of 200k for anyone who used at least 2078 BA.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 11 2010 11:16 PM EDT

    Upon further inspection, I have decided to give out two second place prizes. EliteofDelete's target does not meet specifications (36.6% score:MPR ratio) however, I am inclined to believe that at the time of the fight, it did meet the 40% requirement.

    AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 11 2010 11:22 PM EDT

    Thanks slayer. It was an interesting tourney. I expected a lot more excitement at the end with people scrambling to get sweet targets.

    Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 11 2010 11:23 PM EDT

    Prizes are all sent!

    T52 should be coming up in a few weeks!

    Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 11 2010 11:36 PM EDT

    Next time I won't farm my target into oblivion as AK farms me.

    JSCarnage April 12 2010 1:30 AM EDT

    Hey, cool! 2nd place for the probie :-)
    I really liked this, although it was kind of demanding to be almost always on to fight for those two characters at the same time (good thing I'm almost always studying or working on the computer :-)
    Me too, I was expecting some kind of dramatic finish but I guess everyone had already gone as high as possible before the deadline and knew it.
    Congratulations to all the other winners and thanks to the organizers :-)

    Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 12 2010 9:54 AM EDT

    So technically I got 4th and noone else but 4 of us posted our scores.
    so then technically I placed last. I am also willing to bet that if anyone else had posted there highest character I may very well have been 5th or 6th. Either way it was good clean fun and I hope there is more tournys with BA caps as some of us have limited time. Thank you slayer for another great tourny.

    Zakalwe [Heroic Method] April 12 2010 10:48 AM EDT

    I didn't post, but since the highest MPR that I beat was only 246K, you definitely didn't come in last AK. ;) Elite took me by surprise at the end; I don't know how many times I farmed Bordem before I realized he'd untrained...
