Hmm, participation prize sounds nice enough so that most active people should have an incentive to bother, if they can remember to...
... I mean, 3 days at x100 growth rate (with uber-plenty of CB$ earned too) should be enough to beat at least 1 target even starting from scratch after the lead already just won, plus however much time before for the lead to actually win, plenty of time for a participation prize the very least.

Is the 500k "completion" prize selectable multiple times ?
As in, you can select it only once and if more than 12 people reach completion, the 13th and later can only get a participation prize ? Or can as many people as they want placed 4th or worse select the 500k prize each and get it instead of any of the items ?

Quyen December 11 2011 6:33 AM EST

hmm.. this will be a interesting Tourney.

Im in!

TH3 C0113CT0R December 11 2011 8:18 AM EST

no rares regularly used?

you may want to specify which weapons can and can't be used. what ia a non regularly used rare?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 11 2011 10:53 AM EST

you may want to specify which weapons can and can't be used. what ia a non regularly used rare?

there have been quite a few tournament improvements. the tourney admins can now limit what is in the store for tournament characters.

Quyen December 11 2011 10:56 AM EST

lets just say that every item that currently is used by most of the active champions = a rare.

TH3 C0113CT0R December 11 2011 11:15 AM EST

i understand that, but that still doesn't answer my question.

Quyen December 11 2011 11:17 AM EST

L3G0; watch the weapon shop and armor shop in businesses. from those items you can choose for the tourney :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 11 2011 12:18 PM EST

Yes the 500k is selectable multiple times.

By rares not regularly used I mean ones that people are willing to straight up sell to the store like a katana.

Sickone December 11 2011 12:43 PM EST

I've seen sold MCMs and MCs and I've sold a MCM to the store myself. There's several of them in there right now. Does that mean they'll also be available for the tournament ? :P

Quyen December 11 2011 3:18 PM EST

12 noon... thats dinner time +2 hours to burn and buy everything for the char :| with homework >.<

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 12 2011 7:35 AM EST

This tourney will last for 3 days after the first place winner.

Consider it won ;)

Quyen December 12 2011 11:36 AM EST

cant make first place already.. with luck im now second place :|

Quyen December 13 2011 11:09 AM EST

bump, its gonna be tomorrow!

Quyen December 14 2011 12:05 PM EST

Bump, It Has Begun!

Quyen December 14 2011 12:08 PM EST

also; a glitch i got is that it keeps on saying the requested url or so cant be found and the BA goes from tourney to normal BA the whole time.

QBOddBird December 14 2011 4:57 PM EST

There are no other rules. This tourney will last for 3 days after the first place winner.

Do you mean it will last until 3 days after the first person beats the targets? I thought the goal was to beat them with the least BA used, not to beat them first.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 14 2011 4:58 PM EST

I thought the goal was to beat them with the least BA used, not to beat them first.

It will, time only matters for ties.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 14 2011 5:15 PM EST

Yes, you have until 3 days after the first person who finishes beating all the targets. The winner will be decided after the 3 days and be based on the least amount of battles challenged.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 14 2011 9:23 PM EST

Boo on the no RoE option >_>

Quyen December 16 2011 9:41 AM EST

well, the RoE is pretty rare :P

TH3 C0113CT0R December 16 2011 9:52 AM EST

not really I just picked one up the other day for 350k

Quyen December 16 2011 10:09 AM EST

given that its a supporter item.. and they hardly come in rentals unless a player sells it..

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 16 2011 10:10 AM EST

at least no rares regularly used.

RoE doesn't get used regularly and it gives up the use of a tat >.>

TH3 C0113CT0R December 16 2011 10:36 AM EST

Q, i dont' think you can rent out tats.

QBRanger December 16 2011 10:52 AM EST

Yes,

One cannot rent tattoos. At one time in the long past one could, however, people were super leveling tattoos that way.

I still believe the RoE should be allowed in rentals. It does not grow and being able to rent one may certainly help new players get some start rather than using a lesser tat.

DoS [Battle Royale] December 16 2011 1:24 PM EST

I'll be waiting for my 9/20 at cache flush to burn more BA. I wish I had realized that earlier. :)

Quyen December 16 2011 1:43 PM EST

Ohh, uhhh i meant auctions XD

Zhegao, i see u tapped figt 5 times before u got him :p

BestNUB December 20 2011 3:22 AM EST

This means at least 2 minutes between each fight when using one for posting.

I am pretty sure mine followed this rule about multi-tapping.

AAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!!!! IT WAS SO SIMPLE!!!! My problem was with his GA that was too hard to dispel, so I should have used a RoBF to counter it.... That's all I needed! But, I didn't know that lesser tattoos could be reinked, until the thought occured to me, AFTER I had already demoralized myself through untraining and retraining 30 times and still failing... I had been awake all night and half the day, so I was tired and depressed and I was too scared to make any other mistakes... Oh, well, now I know something I didn't before! This Cram Session is OVER!! :D))

Joel December 20 2011 9:29 PM EST

Oh, yeah, here is my battle count!

A is for, the battle you posted is a triple tap and thus it does not count. There must be at least 2 minutes in-between each fight so that it is a clear single tap for the win to count.

TH3 C0113CT0R December 22 2011 1:10 PM EST

well then i give up. I have been playing hard all day every day to try and beat at least one of them. i have retrained 10 times today and the best i can do is a stalemate.
