Month long!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 19 2013 10:30 PM EST

Its* not It's... wow... just. wow.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 19 2013 10:46 PM EST

Month Long!

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 19 2013 10:46 PM EST

month long

Bounty Hunter February 19 2013 10:50 PM EST

Month long works for me.

Fishead February 20 2013 2:43 AM EST

Week long preferred, but I can go with the month long. Definitely not a one day race.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 20 2013 2:49 AM EST

Also to add to answer the second question(Sorry about that) A and B are too traditional. I think it should be based on who has the least amount of farmers at the high end. IE whoever is beaten the least over all. Maybe after the Tourney is over the Top Players duke it out one free and clear fight at a time. then determine who is the toughest over all and there is your winner! Just a thought!

Hivemind [The Hive] February 20 2013 5:08 AM EST

cant really do the anti farmer thing because ppl could use non tourney char to farm. Unless there is a way to keep track of how many farms from tourney char. Other than going through the combat logs by hand I dont think you can track that.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 20 2013 6:12 AM EST

I meant this can be tracked via fight log Hive mind.

Unappreciated Misnomer February 20 2013 6:53 AM EST

Month long 6ba regen or at cache flush 160 ba per day

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 20 2013 2:19 PM EST

I've got some ideas I'm kicking around for a month long tourney that involves quests, a point system, etc etc to determin the winner... still need to rough out the details ;P

Hivemind [The Hive] February 20 2013 3:10 PM EST

Thats a lot of logs to go through. If your willing to do that that would work.

What do you mean by mid range XP+CBD?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 20 2013 3:25 PM EST

Somewhere between 500%-2000% bonus to both of them. High range would be 10k% like some of Nov's tourneys.

However suggestions are open.

And yes it would require a fair amount of work which is why I'm going to plan it out this weekend ;P

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 21 2013 8:42 PM EST

Ok because of a shortage of time on my part (working overtime over the weekend) I probably wont be able to do something super special for my first tournament, but it will definitely be a month long. That is unless I delay it for a little while, but I really wanted to start it this weekend.

Here's what I'm thinking so far.

1600 BA start and cap for the day, 1 round of BA regen per day after that. 2000% Bonus.

After the first day, you must only fight tournament participants.

Winner will be based on a mixture of Win % / # Of opponents you can defeat / # of opponents who beat you. SMs/Draws count against the person who initiated the attack.

Comments, Concerns, and Suggestions please!

[Jedi] Danludar February 21 2013 9:47 PM EST

Any rules gear wise? Or just all out have fun?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 21 2013 10:37 PM EST

If it is worth doing it is worth doing right Xeno. I'd say postpone the start of it so you have time to iron out the details. Just keep us apprised so we know it is still gonna happen.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 21 2013 11:06 PM EST

I'd say run it now and use the experience to create the one you want to spend more time on.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 21 2013 11:19 PM EST

Hmmm well a short one to simply have a Tourney would be nice and garner some experience. 3 Day Tourney Nov Style?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 22 2013 12:01 AM EST

I could do a week trial run ;P

In terms of gear restrictions, I wasn't thinking of any for this one. Maybe when I iron out the details of what I had in mind I'll have gear restrictions.

Hivemind [The Hive] February 22 2013 8:14 AM EST

For gear I would say only lesser tats would be good. That way almost everyone would have access to a tat. Otherwise it could become luck of the draw for the first ones that could afford normal ones out of auctions. That would also focus more on the better strat and less on who got the best tat.

[Jedi] Danludar February 22 2013 10:00 AM EST

Maybe if we allow regular tats we could just say which one we need and NS or someone could spawn it on our character

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 22 2013 10:26 AM EST

Tourey now has its own store which is seperate from the rest of CB. You can buy any item in it that isn't limited by the admin.

[Jedi] Danludar February 22 2013 10:28 AM EST

Oh I didn't know that well ignore my statement

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 23 2013 11:46 AM EST

This is my test tourney ;P

Starts Sunday @ 12pm EST

1 Week
1600 BA Start
4800 BA Cap for the week
Bonus 4000%
No gear restrictions

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 24 2013 6:07 PM EST

Issue with the Tourney Store

Says I cannot buy anything due to someone else buying the item before me or that there is an item cool off period of 20 minutes to go. Yet when I go to my equip page everything I clicked on was bought.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 24 2013 6:10 PM EST

Looks like the money is not being spent either.

Dudster4 February 24 2013 6:23 PM EST

Mine said that but after futzing around for 10 minutes I realized it did buy them and I had like 3 in my inventory.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 24 2013 7:01 PM EST

Yeah I noticed that too, dunno why that would be happening. I'll see if NS can look into it.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 24 2013 7:03 PM EST

Well no worries if items are to be free, we have had a couple tournies where certain items were a part of the start. However this in it's current form can be abusive. I'm just playing around with a strat nothing serious so you can disallow my current char from the standings :-)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 24 2013 7:41 PM EST

What is victory based on?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 24 2013 8:08 PM EST

Defeat the target: Belg (~1.8m MPR)

If no one can defeat it then it will go based off MPR/Win%/Highest Defeated MPR.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 24 2013 8:08 PM EST

Had fun with it, retired it on my own. It was nice to have a chance at playing around :-)

AdminNightStrike February 24 2013 8:30 PM EST

The tourney store worked really well for a long time, I'm not sure what changed. I'm looking into it now.

AdminNightStrike February 24 2013 9:37 PM EST

Fixed. This was broken since the inception of it.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 24 2013 10:54 PM EST

Prizes are:

1st - 1M CB$
2nd - 500K CB$
3rd - 250K CB$

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 25 2013 12:01 AM EST

Definitely fun to run through 1600 BA! I am also getting a better grasp of what the NPs are running into and poor NCBs for that matter. It's been a great learning experience for me thanks for the opportunity :-)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 27 2013 1:29 PM EST

He has been defeated :)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 27 2013 2:18 PM EST

Oh btw since EoD posted it in the wrong thread or forgot to post it in this one I am extending the courtesy of posting it here for him.

Congratz for a job well done and another notch in the tourney belt!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 27 2013 7:55 PM EST

Haha, nice. Was debating whether or not to make the target much harder but I wasn't really certain exactly what range a 4K bonus would land you in after 2600+ BA was spent.

But this helps me gauge it pretty well ;P

Still 2nd and 3rd place guys, plus a participation prize for everyone who felt like giving it a go.

Win win.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 28 2013 9:59 PM EST

Oh for all the new players that might be playing remember to post here if you beat him.

Bounty Hunter March 4 2013 12:21 AM EST

Thank you for running the tourney Xeno.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 4 2013 5:58 PM EST

I forgot participation prizes. Will send those out when I get a chance. Will be running another one like this next weekend.

Neo Japan March 5 2013 9:19 AM EST

this was absolutely my favorite Tourney! May not have won, but I changed my strat maybe 12 times before I found one I really wanted to run with. maybe next time!
