PvP Week 11 It seems that the dust has barely settled from the last PvP week, but we are already planning another. My time is a bit limited over the week, but frozzzen assures me others will I hope help out with hosting and organising the games. Don't just read this thinking I will play PvP "sometime." Make it in PvP Week 11, even if you just bring your AT Blizz sorc. Trim of some of that post Christmas fat in your mouse hand. PvP Week 11 is here. Join in, make new friends. And try to kill them. Here comes the copy & paste bit .... What is PvP Week? Well the clue is in the name. It is a week of PvP games, intended to be a friendly way to introduce new players to high level duelling. I used to write that it was non competitive, but who am I kidding? Everyone wants to win. Let's just say it isn't a competition. If you are new to PvP but worried about getting smeared all over the Blood Moor, don't be. Your new character may have a steep learning curve, but it is everyone's interests that you enjoy it and keep playing. Players can split into teams to even out skill levels. Don't expect to win every duel either though What happens in PvP Week? - You will get the best idea by reading the write ups from all the previous PvP weeks. - The idea is a PvP game, every night, for a week. You don't have to play every night, but you can. - PvP week is all about high level, bad manners rules duelling. I'm not planning to include any low fat, sugar free alternatives like aLLD18 or LLD30. - PvP Week - The Questions Thread is a wealth of good info and is always open if you have any questions. - I'm not doing the write ups, so if someone wants to volunteer, please go for it. OK, you have convinced me, I want to have a go, but I have never played PvP before - How do I get started? If you don't have a character already, look to your re-specs. Most of the standard PvM builds - Trappers, Bone Necros, Poison Necros, Sorcs, Hammerdins - can all do well with a bit of adjustment, even if you don't have a full inventory of life skillers. If you are interested but need help, you can post in this thread. So when will PvP week be? Monday 6th to Sunday 12th January. That is a proper week this time and everything. It's dark and the weather is bad, what else will you do? The Rules We play in 1.13d Standard BM Rules - No potions (except mana potions), mercs, wells, or shrines. - No recasting Cyclone and Bone Armour. - No minions that cannot be summoned in town with the exception of Decoy. - No Holy Freeze, Decrepify, Slow Missiles, or Bone Prison. - No mass slow (>10%), no mass poison from items (>200), no mass replenish (>25). - No curse charges (this includes Slow Missiles). Chance to cast is acceptable. - No over absorb. Limit 2 items per element with the standard ban on Rising Sun, Black Oak and 1.07 LoH. - Mana potions are allowed for all characters except ES based worcs So What Is This Thread For? Any questions, pre-match banter, post-match analysis, videos, screenshots, basically anything that you like related to PvP Week. I'm not going to do a sign up table, but if you are in, please post.
