T91: Monster Maces (in Contests)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 5 2014 8:55 AM EDT

Next tourney will be starting on Wednesday Midnight server time. It will run for 1 week. The winner will be the one with the most powerful blow and each team will be required to have at least 1 minion with a SoC and blunt weapon equipped. No training of DD's are allowed. Everything else is allowed as well as all items available in the store.

Starting BA is 5000 and BA cap is also 5000.

This means you could theoretically make multiple runs for the tourney however only the latest run will be counted for winning.

TBD (gotta take a good look at what's on TP first)

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 5 2014 1:05 PM EDT

Does the most powerful blow have to be made by a MoD?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 5 2014 1:15 PM EDT

no, any blunt weapon can be used. This includes Unarmed Combat as well.

Newlin [SeeD] April 5 2014 1:52 PM EDT

What kind of challenge bonus are we looking at?

Newlin [SeeD] April 5 2014 2:17 PM EDT

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 10 2014 1:49 PM EDT

Thanks : )

Fishead April 10 2014 2:18 PM EDT

Is there an easy way to search retired tourney characters? Just want to keep tabs on people making multiple runs.

Achertontus [Sneezels] April 11 2014 5:06 AM EDT

Can someone explain how the challenge bonus works? The higher opponents i fight, the lower the bonus. Characters with twice my score and/or mpr give a bonus of -77%. I dont think thats correct?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 11 2014 7:28 AM EDT

Remember that tourney characters work off of tourney score which can be very different from the team's actual score.

Achertontus [Sneezels] April 16 2014 11:08 AM EDT

Well it was a fun contest. Thank you Nemesia! And gratz to the winner, Newlin. Nice job!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 16 2014 11:26 AM EDT

Thraklight Resonance April 16 2014 6:39 PM EDT

If Rubberduck takes the Elven Cloak, I'll take the Shadow Cloak. If he doesn't take the Elven Cloak for some reason, I'll take the Elven Cloak. Nice job Newlin!

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] April 16 2014 10:48 PM EDT

elven cloak please. I wish I could say this was the first time I've fallen asleep and screwed up the end of a tourney :)

[Quoth]The Raven April 17 2014 12:31 AM EDT

Heh, you and me both Rubberduck[T]. Hopefully I've learned my lesson this time and won't try to leave it to the last minute.

I'll take whichever gloves remain after cleverer and less absentminded folks have made their decisions. Thanks Nemesia!

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 17 2014 2:24 AM EDT

Eg for me if they are still available. Otherwise the 50k. Lol

tyvm! (out of interest, when I was playing the tourney it told me I had 2K BA left to spend, then I ran out of current BA so thought it must need regening, when I loggeed in an hour or so later it said all BA used up, did I get something confused or was it just displaying wrongly? - I'm not fussed as was only playing (interesting tourney btw ty nem) for little fun not competively just out of interest)

Achertontus [Sneezels] April 17 2014 12:32 PM EDT

Ye there's a serious delay and faulty showing of ba left. I had the same thoughts but at the end it turned out allright.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] April 17 2014 2:13 PM EDT

I believe that the amount it says you have left does not update unless you refresh the sidebar. Thus, when you are fighting it will not accurately reflect how many more battles you really have left but rather how many you had left at the start of that session.

Achertontus [Sneezels] April 17 2014 2:29 PM EDT

I play cb on my laptop, desktop and phone. Switching to either one, even with a reasonable amount of time in between, would still give the wrong amount. It seemed that it was only updated every 3-4 hours, I didnt keep count but it was something like that. At the end I had 27 BA left and it said I reached the max amount, while I fought 5017 battles. I'm only guessing here, but could it be because of the switching with a non-tournament character that the system can't keep correct track? Either way, I loved the tourney :)

{CB1}Bio April 17 2014 9:14 PM EDT

Yeah, I noobed this one...totally thought I had another day to use the other ~2k BA
