Unappreciated Misnomer April 27 2013 7:15 AM EDT

Oh yes

ThatOneMan April 27 2013 12:53 PM EDT

Never been in a tournament. Does the BA stay separate between tournament char and normal char?

I just started an NCB few days ago lol

Dudster4 April 27 2013 1:07 PM EDT

yes it does, so there's no reason not to participate!

ThatOneMan April 27 2013 2:18 PM EDT

Sweet. Free 100k Lol

alaskanpsyko April 28 2013 12:02 AM EDT

One question, what time zone does the server run by? As I am always forgetting.

alaskanpsyko April 28 2013 12:09 AM EDT

Sorry for the ignorant question..as all I had to do was look at the timestamps.

ThatOneMan April 28 2013 1:04 AM EDT

so im guessing its Eastern?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 28 2013 1:57 AM EDT

Yes, server time is EST

alaskanpsyko April 28 2013 3:59 AM EDT

Damn looks like I'm goin to have to stay up tonite in order to get a decent start on it. Noon EST is 8am AKST.

Atomicboy [The Knighthood] April 28 2013 2:36 PM EDT

Buying and selling an AoI nets you over 500k profit. Is this supposed to happen?

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 28 2013 2:41 PM EDT

It is a known bug. Abusing it gets you disqualified from the tourney.

Atomicboy [The Knighthood] April 28 2013 2:45 PM EDT

oh lol well guess i am dropping out of this one :P

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 28 2013 3:19 PM EDT

You would have to talk to Xeno about it. It is the start of the tourney so you probably didn't gain any advantage in my opinion. But I am not the one running the tourney :P

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 28 2013 3:45 PM EDT

^ I honestly didn't even know about that bug, probably should have adjusted the prices of some of the items lol.

Don't worry about it, I don't really see that being a factor in this particular tourney as the bonus is so high and the effort it would take to abuse that to your advantage is way too time consuming.

However that being said.. don't abuse it people. ;P I don't want to have to adjust the prices now that it's already started.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 28 2013 3:49 PM EDT

^ Meh forget it, too hard to monitor.

Prices for AoI and AoJ have both been set to 500k to prevent abuse. (I'm basing it on the fact that these both are set at +10 and worth 1m nw.)

I don't think this will directly affect anyone, but if it does I apologize.

QBPixel Sage April 29 2013 5:55 PM EDT

Is it possible to retire a tourny character I made and make a new one? Will it have the same bonuses and BA start?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] April 29 2013 6:32 PM EDT

^ Yep, you can retire it and start a new one no problem. It will be just like starting a new T-Char, so you'll start with 1600 BA

IPoop May 1 2013 12:12 PM EDT

Okay what am i missing.

Ive trained
Decay 14,706 17,302 0.5 0

just to try it out, so its above base

the minion is wearing -
An Amulet of Focus
An Adamantite Cuirass
A Shadow Cloak
A Set of Chain Mail Leggings
A Set of Tulkas' Gauntlets
A Helm of Durin
A Mithril Shield

and yet the decay doesnt fire even against teams with no AMF

Neo Japan May 1 2013 12:22 PM EDT

are you dying before melee? it's not a ranged attack

IPoop May 1 2013 12:27 PM EDT

nope the decay minion makes it to melee

IPoop May 1 2013 12:30 PM EDT

spell checker friendly name stumbled swinging at Hal
Bay's Decay hit Hal for no damage
spell checker friendly name Cone of Cold hit Hal [86,084], spell checker friendly name [59,109]

against a team with no AMF - first round of Melee ... and its like that for all melee rounds its alive for against any team

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 1 2013 2:18 PM EDT

Probably over your ENC limit.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 1 2013 2:51 PM EDT

^ Check your ENC, Decay wont fire if you are even over .0000005 enc (I dont even know if that's possible.. but yeah)

IPoop May 1 2013 3:45 PM EDT

ahhh that will be the issue then. Thanks!

Dudster4 May 15 2013 12:46 PM EDT

I don't know why I am inferior to a few of you with 1800 more victories but it angers me. I know you guys can't possibly be getting that much better challenge bonus' to negate all my extra fights!

QBPixel Sage May 15 2013 1:03 PM EDT

We all have hacks. And we didn't share with you. >:D

Dudster4 May 15 2013 1:05 PM EDT

I didn't wanna come right out and say it but that is definitely what I was thinking.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 15 2013 7:24 PM EDT

^ Most likely more favorable fights and not worrying about the highest challenge bonus possible, because there is a gap in the game where it's near impossible to get one without a proper strat to abuse a few higher end characters.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 16 2013 11:22 AM EDT

It really boils down to fighting smarter rather than harder. Although now that I have already won, I don't see much point in doing either of those :)

Dudster4 May 16 2013 2:39 PM EDT

Well I don't know about all that...unless you're hiding a lot of XP right now I thinking LordSushi has a better chance of winning.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 17 2013 8:04 AM EDT

Naw, I have already won :)

Just ask Xeno ;)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 26 2013 12:03 PM EDT

Was fun guys! Feel free to send the 5 million to immortals ;)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 26 2013 12:19 PM EDT

1st: EoD
2nd: Dudster4
3rd: LordSushi

Participation rewards go to:
Neo Japan
Obsterical Towlette (db)
[Unrivaled]Twist Of Fate

Thanks to all who participated, please leave any feedback and let me know if you'd like me to continue doing these or not.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 26 2013 12:23 PM EDT

I personally would like to see a little more restriction. Just my opinion.

This took quite a bit out of TPs pocket so donations to TP are surely welcome ;P Will help fund future tourneys and perhaps an overhaul of many of TPs characters ;P

We'll see.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] May 26 2013 12:58 PM EDT

Not enough mutlis lately? :(

[Unrivaled]Twist Of Fate [SeeD] May 26 2013 1:39 PM EDT

The tourney was a great refresher for me personally. I wouldn't mind participating in similar, more or less difficult ones as well. I enjoyed being able to buy any armor and weapon i wanted although, since i caught it rather late i only tried one type of char. Thanks.


Thug [Sponge] May 26 2013 2:03 PM EDT

Congrats to the winners.

You guys did great.

Disappointed in myself for losing focus.

Great tournament, had lots of fun.

do it again.

Dudster4 May 26 2013 5:27 PM EDT

Congrats EoD!

Unappreciated Misnomer May 26 2013 8:27 PM EDT

Thanks for your work Xeno.

Tyrker [Black Watch] May 28 2013 2:10 AM EDT

That was fun. Didn't have enough time to compete with the BA spent of the top performers, but feel good about doing well score with to my power :) . Would love to do this again.
