T85: Revenge of the Furry... err Fury (in Contests)


AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 26 2012 1:03 AM EDT

Taking suggestions!

Planning on starting after big XP on Saturday.

Likely to be a low bonus, low cap, low starting xp affair lasting a week

Winner gets the 5.5m Piper Rake donated to this T

Quyen March 26 2012 8:26 AM EDT

I'm in! :)

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] March 26 2012 12:14 PM EDT

Since theres so much talk over single minion teams right now, why not make it single minion based only? i.e. Highest MPR target defeated wins?

TH3 C0113CT0R March 26 2012 12:19 PM EDT

don't do that, everyone is just going to go ELB archer as always its so BORING!!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 26 2012 1:33 PM EDT

^ Not I says the me.

1200% Bonus (~double NCB bonus), 6400 BA cap (That's like four 1600 BA tourneys throughout the week, I think that seems reasonable/do-able) 600k starting xp (50k for stats).

Winner can be a few different things: Highest MPR reached, highest MPR defeated, most tourney players defeated (in tourney competition, in case of a tie win % determines winner), maybe some other stuff I can't think of.

Quyen March 26 2012 2:16 PM EDT

how about.. 3 minions, no tattoo's, 15K starting exp for the first minion, 100K starting CBD, 1000% bonus, for about 1 week?

stabilo March 26 2012 2:43 PM EDT

do something that we won't do in normal play.

.. so normally 'unused' items will be used and bring some fun.

e.g. Fire Familiar and 4 Minions, with being required to use the FF from start up to level it up as well and in the end highest FF-Familiar wins (no change/trade/auction of FF allowed of course)

Quyen March 26 2012 2:54 PM EDT

just as stabilo says, with a small mix: about 100K starting exp, NUB bonus and then add in ONLY Whips/daggers and slings :D

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 26 2012 3:05 PM EDT

How about a tournament with something like no DD no GA a regular CB bonus last for a week, unlimited BA, no rares only normals, and the normal prices are increased so that people actually have to actually climb up the ladder with weapons and armor?

QBRanger March 26 2012 3:37 PM EDT

A name like that just begs for a Jiggy/UC tourney.

Bonus 500%. 160 BA to start. First to get his/her Jiggy up to 2M level wins.

No DD. No GA. No weapons allowed except for Heavy Xbow. The Jiggy/UC has to be the only damage.

TH3 C0113CT0R March 26 2012 3:49 PM EDT

sounds good

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 26 2012 4:12 PM EDT

wins based on tat level are a no go given past issues

QBRanger March 26 2012 4:14 PM EDT

Could you explain what you mean by "past issues"?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 26 2012 4:20 PM EDT

there is a tourney that no one ever won because expired tourneys don't list items in a way that that they can be seen... besides tat size is basically an MPR tourney with the ability to retrain with less of a penalty... not that interesting

QBRanger March 26 2012 4:26 PM EDT

not that interesting

Perhaps not to you, but then again it measures pure growth and prevents people from just hiring minions at the end to jump MPR.

So it actually gives a better measure of growth per battle than MPR or score.

While the tourney records may not show who "wins", it is easy to put it in a thread who won.

Quyen March 26 2012 5:06 PM EDT

what if someone lied?

QBRanger March 26 2012 5:17 PM EDT

Ok,

When someone reaches 2M tattoo level, they sell their tattoo to the store. For everyone to see via the xfer logs. You also have a rule that nobody can buy anything other than base tattoos or be D/Qd.

Or make it a race to 5M tattoo level and it will then show up in the top JKFs.

BestNUB March 26 2012 5:20 PM EDT

I don't think this will work, Ranger. The store for tournament chars is kept separate from the store for regular chars. The tournament store is always stocked with the same items, never changing. The regular store is stocked with an arbitrary amount of items and also any items that player sell back to it. This is based on my experience participating in two tournaments. Perhaps I could be wrong.

QBRanger March 26 2012 5:22 PM EDT

What would prevent a T admin from looking at the tourney store for the winning Jig once the winning character gets to the winning level and sells it to the tourney store?

stabilo March 26 2012 5:43 PM EDT

is it possible to allow more than one tat / team for touneys?
-> do a 4 minion + 4 familiars tourney so that there are actually 8 chars to kill ..

that would be fun!

BestNUB March 26 2012 5:56 PM EDT

Someone correct me if I am wrong but if you sell the jig to the tourney store, it would not show up in the store? The store just has a constant stock of items that never changes?

stabilo March 26 2012 6:14 PM EDT

yepp, you have exactly one item of each possible item there.
you buy one, leave the store and come back, it's back in the store.

.. so in tourneys you can have all the rares you dreamin of!

Unappreciated Misnomer March 26 2012 7:07 PM EDT

did this start?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 31 2012 1:25 PM EDT

currently planned for sometime after big xp, I've got a huge moving project most of today, so plan for sometime around midnight server time as a start

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] March 31 2012 3:25 PM EDT

Just wanna say thanks for doing these more often Nov, and I will also be donating another 2m to this tourney :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 31 2012 6:05 PM EDT

I'll toss an extra 1m to whoever over comes the challenge of beating me ;)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 31 2012 11:23 PM EDT

This should be a mess...

100000% bonus, 4800 BA cap, lasts a week.

Should give NS plenty of data to figure out the score drain bug, please track any and all instances and post them here.


From: Piper Rake Sent: March 28 7:40 PM EDT Delivered: March 28 8:04 PM EDT
Could we have a heavy x bow tourney. Big cash and exp rewards. No dd spell, only hxbow. Highest mpr in 1 week. Figure since we havent had a change in awhile, give everyone an oppurtunity to test it out for free.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 31 2012 11:26 PM EDT


Sorry... database error. Guess this new Character will have to wait.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 31 2012 11:27 PM EDT

Btw No DD spells is clear on no DD familiars, but what about other tats? Or we going tat-less for this one?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 31 2012 11:29 PM EDT

won't start for another thirty minutes... must of set time wrong...

some tats, no dd

stabilo April 1 2012 2:23 AM EDT

so are these the rules?

"
No dd spell, only hxbow. Highest mpr in 1 week.
"

and

"
some tats, no dd
"

or is there somewhere else some post i missed?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 1 2012 2:55 AM EDT

that's it...

QBJohnnywas April 1 2012 3:22 AM EDT

I'm in on this. Can I use a melee weapon?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 1 2012 3:25 AM EDT

yep

QBJohnnywas April 1 2012 3:27 AM EDT

Cool. Thanks!

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 1 2012 1:14 PM EDT

Isn't there an issue with tourney characters affecting the scores of normal characters? If so, I am kinda disappointed to see one with a huge bonus and and time frame.

Quyen April 1 2012 1:31 PM EDT

Should give NS plenty of data to figure out the score drain bug, please track any and all instances and post them here.

maybe thats why it's a high bonus and time tourney.. :P

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] April 1 2012 2:11 PM EDT

This one wont dominate scores like the 2b cbd tourney did though. You will actually have to work your way up the ranks rather then targeting single archer teams with a ExBow with 800m nw.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 2 2012 5:32 AM EDT

Gah I'm going to screw myself over >_> I've already done two small retrains and I just thought of something awesome to do and I want to retrain again XD


Lol we should start going by Max tat size to gauge true MPR in case of retrains XD

... or someone needs to slap me and tell me to stop doing it

Quyen April 2 2012 7:10 AM EDT

*slaps xeno* stop it

moskel April 2 2012 1:29 PM EDT

Re: Gohan... This will make the same size of mess thanks to me ;) RoBF + EC + lots of money for DB is more effective than ExBow.

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] April 2 2012 3:52 PM EDT

haha true enough moskel, you found a way to break it :P

Waldo April 2 2012 8:09 PM EDT

Hate to do this but (T85) Sam's fish bowl currently has decay trained

Fishead April 3 2012 2:10 AM EDT

Sorry, I throw on a base decay out of habbit. And I was so close to winning this tourney!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 3 2012 2:14 AM EDT

you and me both...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 3 2012 10:32 AM EDT

I've got a base one on just in case, but do you have to use a Heavy XBow?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 3 2012 10:56 AM EDT

^ If you're just doing it for testing purposes you can do whatever you like. The rules only apply if you are actually participating and attempting to win the tourney.

Usually people with throw a [test] tag after their name to let people know its a test character, but I doubt anyone would really mind. Unless in fact you are trying to win, in which case follow the rules :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 3 2012 11:44 AM EDT

The rules are, well, ambiguous.

Do I need to *use* a H XBow? Does it need to be my main attack? Can I have one in my inventory? As we can use Melee Weapons, I can in essence follow the rules by using a base XBow.

Which seems rather redundant. ;)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 3 2012 11:45 AM EDT

quit being pedantic and have fun...

There is no requirement to use one, however not using one would be silly given there is no other ranged damage available.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 3 2012 11:49 AM EDT

Awesome! :D

Thanks! ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 3 2012 11:50 AM EDT

however not using one would be silly given there is no other ranged damage available.

Don't want to split the amazing cash between two weapons mate. ;)

Once I've reached Physical damage immunity, it's ES 'x' all the way! ;)

moskel April 3 2012 8:56 PM EDT

My score on my non-tourney character dropped when I took losses to hax, a tourney character.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 3 2012 9:55 PM EDT

^ Its back to showing up as 10m again, I know I drained it down to 8m-ish as that's what the T-score shows

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 3 2012 9:57 PM EDT

That's because he fought and it went back up :)

Phoenix [The Forgehood] April 4 2012 8:55 AM EDT

My koyaanisqatsi has been losing score and I'm pretty sure the 1m loss isn't from blighted. :)
Could it be because he's been winning battles but losing most?
Kvothe seems to only win battles.

BestNUB April 4 2012 11:02 AM EDT

The score loss seems to be only aesthetic. I noticed many people getting drained. However, there doesn't seem to be an overall lowering of scores. Trying attacking once and seeing if your score doesn't jump back to where it was before.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 5 2012 4:03 PM EDT

Post some damn fightlogs! I want to see what all that NW and MPR can do!

Quyen April 5 2012 5:12 PM EDT

pretty much make us bleed for millions of health :P

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 5 2012 9:23 PM EDT

Lol name a fightlog you wanna see Nov, pick one of my opponents I'm currently fighting.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 6 2012 12:32 AM EDT

well the one I want to see you don't win yet...

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 6 2012 12:36 AM EDT

What can I say, I'm crippled by my inability to use DD, and I don't want to retrain to AMF just to get him cause I don't want to risk losing my lead >.>

I know who you are talking about though... he's the only one I cant get.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 6 2012 12:48 AM EDT

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 7 2012 6:32 AM EDT

So, after hires EoD is going to pass me. I already have a general idea of by how much, but I felt like making this a secondary contest.. well more like a betting pool.. for guessing how much he's going to pass me by.

I will start the pool at 500k. You get one guess, price is 100k to guess which gets added to the pool, closest person wins the pot. Over or under, doesn't matter, this isn't the price is right.

Any takers? btw if only one person says yes.. sorry its not happening ;p

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 7 2012 6:40 AM EDT

Btw, please send all bets to my Secretary ;)

Holy crap, I accidentally unequipped my Tattoo, now I cant re-equip it.

Waldo April 7 2012 2:48 PM EDT

I second Johnnys suggestion just let me keep this as my main.

I really wanted to get to x100K. Would only need a few days to get there too

Quyen April 7 2012 2:48 PM EDT

can't re-equip a tattoo? Farm him!!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 7 2012 2:48 PM EDT

Wow.. this sucks

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 7 2012 3:41 PM EDT

"The database rejected the transaction. Most likely you double-clicked on the Assign link. If this is the case, your assignments were made correctly."

I also tried a base tattoo and it worked; most likely it's the DB refusing the tattoo b/c it's so large. Not sure why it worked before; but now can't be put back on.

QBRanger April 7 2012 5:22 PM EDT

Try equipping all your items and then try to put on the tattoo.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 7 2012 5:51 PM EDT

Thanks Ranger, that actually worked, I was able to get your tattoo back on Xeno. I think it limits your max NW to 2B; and putting the tattoo on puts you over that. So, I left the tattoo on and took some stuff off.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 7 2012 6:30 PM EDT

Awesome thanks guys, was busy fiddling around with my car at the time, but much appreciated.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 7 2012 6:42 PM EDT

Lol cant even D/E the stuff not equipped anymore, just get constant database errors. But its all good cause I didnt need the gear you took off and I'm winning all my fights again :)

Django April 7 2012 9:18 PM EDT

I just switched to ToA. I have 52M ST and my HxBow is X50K. The highest I have seen it hit for is 6.2M.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 7 2012 9:55 PM EDT

Yeah, I feel the damage is kinda lacking on it.

Waldo April 8 2012 12:02 AM EDT

Well now that its over I have but two things to say

1) An Elven Stiletto [55x90000] (+200) NW 903,253,683

Great job Xeno! That was a pretty nice run you did

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 8 2012 12:17 AM EDT

[24:15] <novice> so 5m for Xeno, 500k to stabilo, and HX for the next five
[24:15] <novice> someone post that so I remember

Consider it done good sir.

any prices for 2nds ? ;-)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 8 2012 2:17 AM EDT

look up a few posts... you can have 500k or an HX

Um, according to the stats, sorry Xeno, but EOD is top MPR and score.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 8 2012 3:04 AM EDT

He hired after the tourney was over, I'm fairly certain that's not kosher and a bug that needs to be fixed.

Ah, I see.

Great tourney, lots of fun. And some damn decent runs by people, regardless. Nice one!

stabilo April 8 2012 6:09 AM EDT

ok, great! i'll take the 500k ;)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 8 2012 12:45 PM EDT

Yeah, I was out and didn't get back to a computer till about an hour after the tournament ended. It still let me hire tho and figured since I wasn't technically changing anything that couldn't be changed at any time; it wouldn't matter. However, I can understand if that doesn't count x].

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 8 2012 1:52 PM EDT

Looks good with the exception of this:

Gohan April 8 4:20 PM EDT Im sending the 2m i donated to this tourney to TP, give it to whomever won nov!

So technically I should get 7.5m because of Gohan's donation, *shrugs* but honestly its whatever I don't really care.
