[UWLsc] New PvP Tourney. ISO: Participants. Prizes await! Hi everyone. Occasionally, you have to give back to society part of what society has given to you. Going along those lines, I have decided to organise a GM PvP tourney. I realise that Uber already has one going on, so this will probably take place after his, unless I get blessings from everyone taking part. In this post, I will list the ground rules, the quota of participants I need, as well as the prizes involved. This will also double as the signup thread, as well as the feedback thread. Depending on circumstance, the draw may be made here too. Without further ado, on to the rules: Ground rules: 1) There is a level cap of 90 on entered characters. 2) There is to be no health potting. Mana potting is allowed, unless you use ES. All blank belt slots are filled with id scrolls. 3) No duped or hacked items allowed. Meaning that there is no use of 08valks for that wwsin, or bugged tals for sorcs. 4) Not every match will take place in the blood moor. At least a couple of matches will take place elsewhere, so factor builds with that in mind. Places with IM will not be used. 5) Everyone is restricted to two pieces of slow. Dooms count as slow. 6) Try not to keep running away from opponents. 7) Hammerdins are allowed in this tourney. 8) No prebuffs are allowed. Only enchant prebuff is allowed vs pallys and barbs. 9) For absorb, characters can only use a maximum of one piece of absorb, Items that increase max resistances are allowed, but are limited to two pieces, unless there is build specific gear such as dragon for auradins. Hammerdins cannot use absorb. 10) All participants should submit a character build to me for reference. 11) Item swapping is allowed as long as it does not break rules. Pally shields with resists and socketed with pgems are not allowed. Only socketed monarchs and other neutral shields are allowed, and even then, only pdiamonds can be socketed. 12) Anything with charges cannot be used, be it life tap wands or hoto's oak sage charges. The item can be used, the charges cannot. 13) No mercenaries allowed too. 14) Characters are limited to EITHER increasing max resists or using a resist stack shield, or resist stack item such as jade talon for sins. If you use a resist stack item, you forfeit the right to use up to two pieces of max resist equipment. 15) Maximum of two characters entered. Only one can be a paladin, to encourage diversity. 16) Players are allowed to use two pieces of sorb against an auradin. An auradin is defined as a paladin that uses dragon, hoj and dual dreams to stack auras. Other similar characters such as freezealots, tesladins and dreamers are not subject to double sorb. 17) Any disputes should be solved peacefully, and remember that this whole thing is about having fun GM duels, and winning is not everything. 18) I will also sit in for some matches when the timing is right. Hammerdin specific rules: 1) Hammerdins are limited to one piece of max resist gear swap from normal gear. They will not be allowed to sorb. Why? Hammerdins are a great class, but some thought should be spared for the fire sorcs who will get murdered by spurs+dwarf, even as the hammerdin himself does not suffer much damage reduction. 2) A grief in stash is allowed and not BM in my books. 3) Hammerdins have a maximum of 8 gear swap items in stash. This is again with respect to the fact that they suffer low damage penalties when gear switching to nullify opponents. How the draw works: There will be either 24 or 32 participants, depending on response. If there are 24, participants are grouped into trios, and if there are 32, groups of four. The preliminary round is round-robin, to make it fairer to builds that are unlucky enough to run into a build that dominates their own in the first match. The top two from each group will go through, and in case of a tie, win-loss differentials count. A win is achieved by reaching 5 wins first, with a difference of two. Tie-break rules apply in case of a deuce. Prizes and entry fees: The winner will receive: A legit Soj, a legit HR, 20maras and 5 organ sets Runner up gets: 3 organ sets Third place finish gets: 8hrs Prizes are subject to change if I see something more valuable to replace them. Suggestions are welcome. Entry fees: 3 pgems each character.
