shouldn't be long... NS will have to manually start this

AdminNightStrike December 8 2010 10:06 PM EST

Tried to get a hold of you in chat.. The tournament is listed as starting tomorrow in the database itself.

DoS [Battle Royale] December 8 2010 10:29 PM EST

Tomorrow at 9 pm server time would be awesome. I then would be able to complete it all on Friday after my final exam :)

160 starting & max

You mean a straight 160 fights, or 160 initial and all the BA you can burn?

DoS [Battle Royale] December 8 2010 11:51 PM EST

160 BA is your BA cap.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 9 2010 12:32 AM EST

I am going to assume UC is not allowed.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 9 2010 12:43 AM EST

UC will be allowed, but STR over 100 is not

DoS [Battle Royale] December 9 2010 12:44 AM EST

Ohh, I see. Exciting ;)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 9 2010 5:05 PM EST

4 hours to liftoff

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 9 2010 9:08 PM EST

are we supposed to lose our first several fights because we can't have a starting weapon or train a DD?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 9 2010 9:37 PM EST

yes.... err No EDIT: added Cutlass... sorry about being thick, thought it would only take one loss

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 9 2010 9:54 PM EST

should add a rule that the cutlass needs to be ditched asap, it should only be used to get through the first 2 fights or so. Not that its worth keeping or upgrading the cutlass but still...

yay for using the ds browser to post this.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 9 2010 10:45 PM EST

cutlass is fine... since I can't stop UC either... also helps for moving the familiar around

nuff said...

thats a couple of hours down the drain =\

horseguy001 December 10 2010 9:41 AM EST

Just some food for thought...

XP (per minion) 58768

Thats off of a 100% CB. The randomness in fight rewards combined with a limited amount of BA and super bonuses can really make or break characters. I have gotten 87k per minion off of a 56% bonus.

Not so sure what can even be done, but a string of good luck or bad luck can really alter the tournament standings significantly.

horseguy001 December 10 2010 9:41 AM EST

Sorry for the double

XP (per minion) 107616

With 87% bonus. 13% less bonus and almost double the rewards T_T

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 10 2010 9:57 AM EST

yeah I got a bunch of 60ks off of 100%s, its a little bit of luck for sure but its the same for everyone so its not like you are at a complete disadvantage because of it. =\ Does kinda suck still though

I'm just debating whether or not to hit Nat now for the bonus 250k, or to use my last hit to boost my tat just a tad bit more.

Btw Nov, does the special prize stack with 2nd/3rd or no? Because that will make my choice for me. heh

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 10 2010 10:20 AM EST

yes the special prized stacks

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 10 2010 10:22 AM EST

I keep hearing about how much damage the random factor could do to a persons results... maybe we need to test that out and see just how much difference it'd be in a reduced variable setup like two chars attacking the same massive high level char for the full 160 fights

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 10 2010 12:57 PM EST

Fight rewards are NOT random..

In other news I'll give this a try in a few hours :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 10 2010 1:11 PM EST

Bah I got a SM as my final hit.. that's gotta count for something right? Heh well at least I didn't die, though a draw would have been nice.

Good luck taking out Nat everyone :D

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 10 2010 4:28 PM EST

Fight rewards are NOT random..

Yes they are...

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 10 2010 4:29 PM EST

Unless you're saying they're pseudo-random... which bah humbug.

horseguy001 December 10 2010 6:15 PM EST

Over enough data points they will even out, but in a tournament like this where it's impossible to fight all 160 fights at 100% bad luck could ruin your day (keeping in mind that 1 fight = 1000 fights).

What if you continually hit the lows at 100% and the highs at 50% bonus? Both will not equal out in the end.

However,

I still had a fun tourney regardless, and was merely posting that as something for people to think about when getting these huge bonuses :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 11 2010 12:40 AM EST

So nov, figure out how to tell the tat sizes yet? :P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2010 12:56 AM EST

negatory, likely going to have to have someone do some magic
prizes as soon as we know

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 11 2010 12:51 PM EST

NS is going to try and get realms added to the tat page

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 11 2010 12:52 PM EST

I think it might be good to do it with the most valuable items as well at the same time.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 28 2010 3:55 PM EST

Ever figure out who won this lol?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 28 2010 4:05 PM EST

still working on it, very very sorry

AdminNightStrike December 28 2010 11:15 PM EST

He's waiting on me. Sorry :(
