Lusto I dunno.. I mean ya they're powerful, ya they have a lower NR check then the old drains.

At the same time the main argument against them seems to simply be.. traders will pwn everyone and so they should be nerfed a little.
But who am I to tell people they can't use their tool set?

Should I ban people from root/snare/calming pets? or crats from charming them?
Coming from a MP background I can tell you traders and all of the above are a serious problem especially since most pets have terrible NR.
.... But that hardly seems fair either.

If we start handicapping people where do we stop?

Pre-draining however I can get on board with, although it maybe difficult to route out along with OSB's.

as far as Date/TIme wasn't trying to schedule around individuals just trying to get an idea what the best time is for the majority.

Nanites aren't the problem... it's traders pre-draining. Also I haven't seen a single 200lvl trader in "pvp setup" so I wouldn't worry about them.

Maybe you haven't seen enough froob traders yet. :P L200 froob traders are beasts when it comes to PvP. And basically, double nanites landed on any froob profession guarantees a win for the trader.

All you ever needed to know to make your L200 froob toon a beast in PvP. :P

Im in the middle of drawing up the rules and will likely be posting the actual tourney thread either tomorrow or monday.
The only thing im still not sure on is how the matches will go.

It seems like there is going to be a decent amount of people interested, I would really like to go round robin but I fear it will take to long if we get a decent turn out.

It is your tournament so of course you should do it in your way. If game was well balanced then there should be no restrictions. However traders are so much more powerful than others that it will not be that fun for non-traders. If you want to be sure then duel few traders to see how it is - that is what I did before I chose my rules.

Be flexible with the format. Prepare for round robin, knockout and double knockout. Choose by the attendance.

Good luck with the tournament! There is even a chance that I would join.

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

"Maybe after a Hot Pocket."

I have dueled traders and if I did'nt make it clear before I come from a MP background (i've played more mp's then anything else)
Traders RAPE mp's unless you can land NSD first, which RARELY happens.

And this is without the LE drains.
I also have a trader and know they depend on them in PVP it's your bread and butter.

Anyway Im just finishing up the rules, Trying to balance out for time, I doubt anyone wants to spend 8 hours on it.
I'll be posting it here in a couple hours.
Wanted to schedule it for this Sunday but afraid it will conflict with anniversary events so it's going to be set for the 29th.

BTW Lusto I agree with you about team pvp next toury will be team based if this is successful, makes round robin more feasible and I think team pvp is just more fun.
