Hmm, I can't find any illegal gear in your explanation... so why should it be checked then?

/joke-mode on

Also, I'm buying: a "the Mid", notum saturated metaplast plates, a nanodeck, bunch of notum fragments, a "BE Remote Controller" (since The Mid normally is controlled form the inside, not from the outside as I want) and a Nanocrystal(Quantum WIngs) (to keep the robot flying with the extra weight of armor and such). I'm building a nano-casting, flying mini-robot with my lvl10 NT on Atlantean! Speed and evade-nano's as well as nukes also will come in handy!
I also drew a robot-model with wheels and a sledgehammer: I'm selling my sketches!

I'm all for the level ranges that you posted, WT. However, you haven't answered my question as to whether there will be buffing services at the tourney site or not, because I don't want to spend an hour looking for Mochies and a 131 when it's my turn to battle. Also, you may want to organize the groups for battle in froobs and expansion players. I say this because when twinked at the same level, the expansion user will more than likely have better gear then the froob, meaning a quick loss for the froob.

Another question: any chance of there being a shop at the tourney site so that players can purchase new items in-between matches? :D And what's the prize for the winner(s)?

This city is afraid of me.

I have seen its true face.

The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown.

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down and whisper

Are you insinuating something? Or trying to get even with me somehow? Because surely you know that my brother, METALmario, would rust in the bathtub [-X

Say, that would be a good way to get rid of him... :lol:

Well, it's been almost two weeks now since we last heard any news about the event. A date would be helpful to know, as well as when (time-wise) it is, and how long it should last.

And you STILL haven't answered my question as to whether or not there will be buffing services available :wink:

It never happened. A few days after the event announcement the World Trading Corporation's QL 150 Towers came under attack disrupting the event altogether as I allocated resources to start building stronger defenders...(and hired mercenary groups to do a little ...ahem...work for me)
