QBOddBird November 22 2010 12:49 PM EST

lollllll I am looking forward to this one

but please kill the armors afterward so they don't appear on the "Most Valuable Items" list

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] November 22 2010 1:33 PM EST

When does it end?

DoS [Demon Forging] November 22 2010 1:54 PM EST

Haha. That's awesome.

AdminShade November 22 2010 1:59 PM EST

When does it end?
160 BA cap, I think this would end within a few days, but perhaps have people be able to sign up during the week?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 22 2010 2:05 PM EST

Haha, sounds like fun. Question for clarification: Highest AC on a single minion, or highest AC total? I'm assuming single minion but it had to be asked.

Kefeck [BlackSmith] November 22 2010 2:42 PM EST

I won't be able to play it tonight. Way too tired :(.

Newlin [SeeD] November 22 2010 2:46 PM EST

I won't be able to play it tonight. Way too tired :(.

Same here, I need my rest for exams tomorrow.

.. November 22 2010 3:10 PM EST

So I'm guessing we have awhile to use the 160 BA?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 3:12 PM EST

updated with start and end times

Sickone November 22 2010 4:53 PM EST

but please kill the armors afterward so they don't appear on the "Most Valuable Items" list

Tournament items no longer appear on the normal lists at all since a while ago :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 22 2010 5:00 PM EST

^My helm from the last tourney begs to differ:

A Helm of Clearsight [-5] (+14) worth $6,666,123 owned by Xenogard ([T59]Xenogard)

2nd highest HoC listed in the most valuable items.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 22 2010 5:01 PM EST

It only doesn't show statistics for tattoos. However that would be a good thing to add in. Maybe a separate tracker for all tourney items.

Sickone November 22 2010 5:02 PM EST

Hmm... so only weapons are not listed ?
Because I had a SoD that was over x10000 in T59...

Sickone November 22 2010 5:05 PM EST

Hey, your HoC is NOT listed on the "Helm of Clearsight: top 50"...
...so that would mean they show up only in the "most valuable top 5 items", but not in the "top 50" list.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 22 2010 5:06 PM EST

I'll bug NS or someone to finish that last little bit and then we don't have to worry about cleaning up the equipments.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 5:12 PM EST

Updated

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] November 22 2010 5:38 PM EST

Is it highest AC in total or just on one minion?

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 6:26 PM EST

Sounds fun

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 6:27 PM EST

it's highest AC on a single minion...

I think I'm going to be extra cruel and actually restrict it to single minion chars since otherwise things will get complex very quickly.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] November 22 2010 6:27 PM EST

just for clarification, though the answer seems to be no; does the bonus extend to forging?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 22 2010 6:30 PM EST

Ok sweet, single minion. This should be fun :D

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 6:30 PM EST

I don't know

Lord Bob November 22 2010 6:30 PM EST

I would like to see another tournament like this one when I'm around to participate. Read: not Saturday night.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 6:31 PM EST

There will be lots of them...

Lord Bob November 22 2010 6:34 PM EST

Didn't really realize this wasn't the Saturday tournament. Thought this was the old thread. Oh well, point at me and laugh.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 7:13 PM EST

With pleasure LB

*points and laughs*
:P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 8:09 PM EST

less than an hour till the start

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] November 22 2010 9:07 PM EST

can i get an explanantion as to why this is T60 when CB shows this as T63?

FailBoat[SG] November 22 2010 9:24 PM EST

Now this kind of tournament I can enjoy.

FailBoat[SG] November 22 2010 9:37 PM EST

500AC or Bust Train Boarding now!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 9:38 PM EST

AP: because the system hates me... NS will fix it

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 22 2010 9:53 PM EST

made price updates to the store...

forgot about people being able to sell items back

Kefeck [BlackSmith] November 23 2010 12:06 AM EST

Tag

* The first person(s) to enter the tourny (maybe an admin NPC) will be given a rare item. (named HoC or similar)
* Whenever someone beats him, he drops the item and passes it to the person beating him. Whoever has one of those rare item at the end of tourny gets a prize.
* PainKiller



Could we do a variation of this tourney next ;)?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 23 2010 12:11 AM EST

Kef: sounds brutally complex, but I'll think about it

FailBoat[SG] November 23 2010 1:27 AM EST

I got bored and dropped out. My patience did me in again. >.<

Sickone November 23 2010 2:42 AM EST

Please have a LONG tournament next, and with a high enough bonus so we pass well over ANY non-tournament character MPR-wise by the time it's over... something like, winner's MPR should be somewhere around 20 mil :P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 23 2010 2:43 AM EST

no

Sickone November 23 2010 2:46 AM EST

In fact, why don't we have exactly that tournament... "first one to 20 mil MPR wins" with a 10000% bonus, lasts as long as it is needed (probably around one month and a half).
:P

Sickone November 23 2010 2:50 AM EST

no

Why not ?
Or better still, why that categorical and no-explanations "no" ?
What exactly would be so horrible to make it so that the only good way to progress past a certain point (somewhere beyond the first 2 weeks or so) will only be to attack other tournament participants ?
Tournament items are separate, tournaments scores are separate, and there's no better way to make "gimping of high level characters" and obsessive target-sifting irrelevant that to make the only decent targets other tournament participants.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 23 2010 2:56 AM EST

Tourney scores are bugged... they occasionally carry over.
but that's not why...

I'm doing short tourneys for a bit, I like them and have been
waiting years to run them. Long tourneys will be back as soon as we get multiple tourneys running at the same time or I need a break.

Shade is also another option, if you were to convince him to run that abomination I'd happily step aside. Personally I try and keep as much of a handle on the big bonus stuff as I can, cause really insane results somehow cheapen the game to me.

QBOddBird November 23 2010 3:17 AM EST

as a side note, the only really long tourneys i have ever stuck out were the zombie ones. i get bored and quit easily

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] November 23 2010 9:33 AM EST

Totally enjoying the daily tourneys... even if theyre simple in rules, theyve brought back some interest in the game, which i havent had in quite a while. Something new everyday :)

Lord Bob November 23 2010 10:39 AM EST

Well, that was incredibly fun.

horseguy001 November 23 2010 11:08 AM EST

That was fun!

Randomness in fight rewards is the killer for this one lol...would have taken extra cash over the extra exp hehe :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 23 2010 9:16 PM EST

1st: DoS (375)

2nd: Eliteofdelete (371)

3rd: DrAcO5676 (367)

Prizes will be sent out later tonight

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] November 23 2010 9:17 PM EST

Congrats Dos, impressed me ^_^.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 23 2010 9:22 PM EST

It was quite fun, I think were I went wrong was my upgrading path, but oh well there is always the next tourney. =P

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] November 23 2010 9:28 PM EST

It was pretty good but next time I would recommend not putting so many restrictions. I felt the tourney was a little cookie cutter based with only 1 weapon and one kind of armor and lots of things disabled.

Adios Muchachos November 23 2010 9:31 PM EST

it was supposed to be "cookie cutter" thats where the fun is... see if you can do better than everyone else, doing the same exact thing...

ScrObot November 23 2010 9:59 PM EST

If only there was a way to turn off viewing other tournament user's fights (both battle log and fight feed) so you can't just wait a while then use everyone else's targets. (=

Thanks again Novice for running these!

DoS [Demon Forging] November 23 2010 10:35 PM EST

Congrats Dos, impressed me ^_^.
Thanks

I will take the largest character on TP please :)

Fishead November 23 2010 10:39 PM EST

Thanks for another fun tourney.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] November 23 2010 10:47 PM EST

I will take the largest character on TP please :)

Well that is sure a quick way to make 5 mil mpr ^_^

Thanks for the fun tourney Glad I restarted or I wouldn't have even made top 3
