Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 31 2011 4:23 PM EST

That's right I'm back! ;P

Admiralkiller December 31 2011 4:41 PM EST

Am I allowed to play?

Quyen December 31 2011 4:54 PM EST

ugh, it looks so complicated. especially by the way it is told :(
some questions:

at the By noon on wednesday; it says a minimum of 800 BA and a maximum of 1100 BA. the Total has to be from 800-1100 or you have to do that much ._.

allotted = Allowed?

what is TBD?

at the King's kigh constable, does hitting the same knight count as defeating the most of them?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 December 31 2011 5:00 PM EST

You start with 300 BA, and can use a maximum of 3000.

On Monday, you are required to have used at least 400, but cannot use more than 600

On Wednesday you are required to have used at least 800, but no more than 1100.

On Friday you are required to have used at least 1200 but no more than 1600.

On Sunday you are required to have used at least 1600.

Quyen December 31 2011 5:01 PM EST

so for full growth, u should get (as example) 600 BA on the monday?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 December 31 2011 5:04 PM EST

On Monday, you will have had the opportunity to use your 300 starting BA, plus regular regen BA, but are not allowed to exceed 600 BA spent (by your own watch, I cannot set this limit)

Fishead December 31 2011 7:32 PM EST

Sounds fun, I hope I have the time to complete this tourney. Are we to create a single minion character or are multi minion characters OK?

DoS [Battle Royale] December 31 2011 8:11 PM EST

Are we to create a single minion character or are multi minion characters OK?

It is up to you. The prizes look good; doesn't matter whether you get first/second/third, you will get something decent :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 31 2011 8:48 PM EST

You can actually set the limit multiple times. As for the prizes, what if one person gets more than 1 of those win conditions?

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] January 1 2012 2:48 PM EST

You can also CM me and I will provide your char with the 10M if Slayer is not online.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 1 2012 2:54 PM EST

i could use some money on my guy! ; )

DoS [Battle Royale] January 2 2012 1:27 PM EST

Past noon, time to spend more BA :)

Quyen January 2 2012 1:41 PM EST

Yeah.. nearly hitting 700 already :P

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 2 2012 6:07 PM EST

Why do I only have a limit of 101 BA left to burn??

That would only put me at 670 total.. -.-

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 2 2012 6:33 PM EST

Not certain, the limit has been and still is 2000.

Admiralkiller January 3 2012 5:49 AM EST

crud I went over unintentionally..

Quyen January 3 2012 6:15 AM EST

l3g0 did too :p anyway, i believe this question hasnīt been answered yet; does multiple hitting a knight count too the amount of knights have been slain? :O

TH3 C0113CT0R January 3 2012 1:16 PM EST

i went over on purpose, im testing a heavy tank.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 3 2012 1:44 PM EST

I've hit my limit until noon tomorrow... I think I've slain enough fellow knights for the day >_>

Quyen January 3 2012 1:46 PM EST

i already reached mine xD

DoS [Battle Royale] January 3 2012 6:02 PM EST

Come tomorrow noon, my records aren't going to show that I fought 100+ battles against my fellow perspective knights... so I'm just leaving this here.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 3 2012 6:39 PM EST

I've kept track of every days Knight slaying.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 3 2012 8:26 PM EST

I've kept track of every days Knight slaying.

this isn't his first rodeo, welcome back slayer! ; )

Quyen January 4 2012 7:28 AM EST

slayer, how much fellow knights did i slay? :O

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] January 6 2012 11:39 PM EST

So, do I have to meet the requirements for the daily challenges to get a participation prize? B/c I was a top contender for NW and maybe even for MPR, and then I forgot to fight one day and traveled another, it would suck if I didn't get even a participation prize :/

Admiralkiller January 7 2012 12:15 AM EST

Well I'm spent.

2000 ba gone!.....1st!

Quyen January 7 2012 7:19 AM EST

if u really cant reach the participation prize, im glad enough to give you mine! (if i get it)

Antonya [Serenity In Chaos] January 7 2012 10:55 AM EST

I will give you money if you don't get the participation prize, Titan. I attacked you alot, so if you are ineligible, it's partially my fault.

Admiralkiller January 7 2012 5:36 PM EST

It says participation is battles attacked so defensive losses don't count against that category. (I am assuming)

Quyen January 8 2012 12:13 PM EST

and the time has came! King slayer, Who has won the Tournament? Who was the strongest (MPR) between them all, the smartest (most fellow knights slaughtered) or the richest (NW)?



P.S.: This episode will air a hour after the ending of the Tournament. Can't wait that long? the second airing of this episode will be 3 hours after the first Episode! Stay tuned!!

DoS [Battle Royale] January 9 2012 5:23 PM EST

I'm curious as to who ended up getting first place. I had expected him to win because I kept staling two people, but then I was able to defeat them in the end. *shrug* It was definitely Xeno's DM that made me realize how useless my GA was, which was just exp being wasted, haha.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 9 2012 8:11 PM EST

Haha that DM was only 70k

Joel January 10 2012 8:50 AM EST

I'm absolutely sure that I won the Royal Blacksmith position. It was real easy to tell, because of the Character Standings page for the tourney. I'm awaiting my turn in the prize choosing! ^.^

Quyen January 10 2012 10:34 AM EST

still waiting :( i really wanna know who won what :(

Antonya [Serenity In Chaos] January 10 2012 10:58 AM EST

No kidding

DoS [Battle Royale] January 10 2012 1:36 PM EST

Yes, very anxious.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 10 2012 3:13 PM EST

Maybe he forgot to actually keep track of everybody ;)

Quyen January 10 2012 3:22 PM EST

That.. That cant bee! >:O

DoS [Battle Royale] January 10 2012 5:06 PM EST

Maybe he forgot to actually keep track of everybody ;)

You wish :P

Admiralkiller January 10 2012 5:51 PM EST

Thanks for running this contest slayer! I know you are busy and stuff so I will wait patiently for results. But I am darn curious to see where I stand for the 1st prize.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 12 2012 2:56 PM EST

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 12 2012 3:04 PM EST

Awesome thanks Slayer.

I have no idea what Joel is going to pick first so I'll just list two things I want from each category whichever Joel doesn't choose I'll take.

Armor:
1. TSA
2. HoC

Weapons:
1. ELB
2. MSK

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 12 2012 3:07 PM EST

Also just to clarify, was it how many total attacks were made vs other knights that was the requirements for first?

I think I was confused and thought it meant he who defeated the most knights as in the most number of other players.

Either way Congrats Joel! And Q! I think this is Qs first time placing top 3 if I'm not mistaken.

Quyen January 12 2012 3:11 PM EST

Yes it is :O!
i'd go for..
1. The TSA (if not chosen)
2. HoC (if not chosen)
3. The MgS :D (if not chosen)
:p
as weapon
1. ELB (if not chosen)
2. MSK (if not chosen)
3. Exbow :D (if not chosen)

Quyen January 12 2012 3:21 PM EST

Sorry for double post, but Slayer..
This was one of the most interesting and awesome Tourney's i've had :D
Thank you for that.

DoS [Battle Royale] January 12 2012 9:42 PM EST

Oh, nice. Congrats!

Joel January 12 2012 9:44 PM EST

YAHOOOOOO!!!! This is the first time I've ever placed First in a tourney!! Thank you Slayer for giving me this opportunity!! The tourney was a learning experience, and it had an entertaining premise!

I would like to pick:
Armors: Trollskin Armor

Antonya [Serenity In Chaos] January 13 2012 12:05 AM EST

Grats to everyone that won. I enjoyed this tourney as well. It was my first and I didn't fare too terribly. Woohoo!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] January 17 2012 3:51 PM EST

Bump for prizes?

Quyen January 17 2012 4:07 PM EST
