World Grand Prix PvP Tournament

Post by rsz » Thu Dec 26, 2013 1:24 pm

Hi Froobs,
I am planing to run a pvp action even though I am not a RL, but I'm not gonna bother if you are not interested.
Main idea is to give away some of my stuff in fun way ;).

Details:
1. First of all, it is not gonna be one day event!
Everyone will know earlier who they gonna fight. That way you can prepare for the fight, change setup, think through tactic or do nothing.
2. Winner from one fight moves forward.
3. 1st, 2nd, 3rd places will be rewarded.

Fighting rules:
1. Froobs only.
2. Self buffs only.
3. No nanite drains and predraining.
4. Sneaking is allowed.

I need 8 players that want to fight, so post toon's: name/prof/lvl (must be able to fight 200).

I'm not setting any date yet.
After I get all fighters I will try to set a date for each pair (date that both ppl will be avaible).
Planning to run 2 fights per meeting, so it will be like 4 events.

So sign up!

No nanite drains
This seems inherently unfair. No UBT? No Nano Shutdown? No rage?

I say everything goes.

No, nanite drains are clearly OP. Even the paid player pvp tournaments in froob level ranges I see ban them. It's a common practice.

Yup nanite drains should be banned. Need to ask though: what form of fighting will it be? 0% suppression gas arena? If so, which arena? Or duels (kinda unfair but possible)?

If Omni's and Neuts are worried, I think the guards in Tir hang out only at the whompa and the city entrances.
You can get to the arena via the grid exit to Tir.

Signing up: Lustu/Soldier/18x
I am not yet 100% sure if I can get there but I will try.

Tir Arena is easy to get. And I am sure Rz can arrange engineer warps if someone has trouble with low hp toons.

One question about self buffing. Can agents use the preparation time to buff themselves up with FP?

Another question: can I change the toon if there is another Hellgun soldier joining in for the tournament? I would use Lostu/Adventurer/200 or Lusto/Doctor/200 if there is also another ranged adventurer.

@Lusto

You can see who is joining and then decide which toon you want to bring, but you can't change toon in middle of tournament.
So far you are the only one who signed.

About agents... I don't really know. With that kind of fighting, agent has a lot of time to prepare with FPs and buffs.
Generally I think it's ok for them to buff with couple FPs, but you need to remember that every FP is like 20mins. When you go through couple FPs some buffs from FP you started with could ran out.
I'm afraid they can just go for easy way and ask friends to buff them. There is no way that I can check exacly what ppl are buffed with, so I must just hope for fair play.

I say YES, agents can buff what they want, but I wish they do it by them selfs.

Okies, let it be the soldier for now. I will check if new participants emerge. I hope they will.

This kind of tournament could also work with free buffing rules. Just do what every you can do beef your fighter. Could be interesting.

Announcement: The event is called off.

Reason is simple - not enough ppl wants to take part in the event.
I know the event wasn't announce good enough in game but I thought I could find at least 8 ppl on forum.
Also from the very begining ppl start to complain about rules (which I think are fair).

I just wanted to birng some fun but it looks like just a few froobs are interestend in pvp.
As I said before there is no reason for me to try make it happen if no one wants to fight.

Well it might be late now but i would sign up with 200 doc named alfatrox. for various reasons i didn't sign up in time though, 1. i thought this was an old event that already had occured 2. i came back to ao like a month ago after a few months break.

If you would like to give it a second shot im in and i am willing to help announce and spread it if you want.
