    PvP Week 15

    15 PvP weeks spread over the last seven years. This has to be one of the longest running series in the SPF, after the MFO of course. And you lucky people get to participate in both in one month. Level your character in the MFO, play it in PvP week. Ideal.

    If you have never PvPed before, this is a great chance to get started. You can get advice on building your character, and if you are nice you may even get some gear gifted to you. So put away some of your preconceived ideas about PvP. Not everyone has amazing gear, and not everyone has amazing skills. Just give it a go.


    PvP week 14 is here. Join in, make new friends. And try to kill them.


    When will PvP week be?
    Wednesday 16th to Tuesday 22nd September 2015


    What is PvP Week?
    I think after all the PvP weeks we have done already most people know by now. 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 - see the list at the bottom of this post.
    - 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, hell difficulty on The Blood Moor.
    - You can ask any questions in this thread or The PvP Thread
    - Please make sure your characters are up to date in The PvP Thread.


    The Rules
    - We play in 1.13d.

    This PvP week is rather disappointing consisting of only 4 players who play frequently. Rest either don't play, or they played very little. Where are you, people? Completely lost interest in PvP or just busy with other things? Despite lack of players, matches are still great, but it would be good if here and there someone else joins the battles as well.

    I think everyone has at least beta cta on their characters, except Mir who prefers to stay vanilla.
