    PvP Week 4 - Christmas 2009: Discussion & Sign up

    PvP Week 4
    Christmas 2009 - Discussion & Sign up

    (Shamelessly taken from the last PvP week thread)

    What is PvP Week?
    Well the clue is in the name. It is a week of PvP games, intended to be a friendly, non competitive way to introduce new plays to high level duelling. 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 everyones 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 PvP Week 3
    - The idea is a PvP game, every night, for a week. Normally there ends up being a mid week break, and some pre PvP week warm ups too.
    - The main emphasis of PvP week is Bad Manners rules duelling, but I'm open to suggestions. Someone suggested a day with a simplified GM ruleset the other day. Would this be a good idea? Bear in mind that these rules would have to be finalised fairly soon.
    - If anyone has any ideas for an end of week mini Tournament, please let me know. I thought it might be nice to incorporate something, not too complicated or time consuming though.
    - PvP Week - The Questions Thread is a wealth of good info and is always open if you have any questions.
    - I'll do my best to write up all the duels, but I can't guarantee I'll be able to, I'm likely to be at my parents house for a day or two whichever week is chosen.


    OK, you have convinced me, I want to have a go, how do I get started?

    1. Read the awesome Updated PvP Guide and the Bad Mannered Addendum to the PvP Guide
    2. Have a look at your existing characters. Maybe one could be re-equipped or adapted for PvP.
    3. It is best to build a character specifically for PvP, so pick a new build from the guide & get questing.
    4. Level that character - Pits, Pindle or MP Baals will all do the job.
    5. Join a game & give duelling a go.

    Hopefully some of the current group of PvP players will make some new characters for the occasion too.


    So when will PvP week be?

    - Well, there is nothing to stop you starting a new character now.

    - The weeks I am available to run it are:
    21st - 27th December
    28th December - 3rd January

    These are Monday to Sunday dates, the weekend before can be used for practicing or testing builds. The second set of dates would suit me much better, as I'm going to be visiting my parents over Christmas. I'll try to host some Baal runs nearer the time for people to level up their characters a bit as well.

    - Yes, I know this may be a bit early and you may have forgotten about it by then. I am posting it now so that people have a chance to get characters together before the PvP week begins.

    I thought Maxicek hosted PvP weeks?

    - Yes, he does, but as he's busy at the moment he suggested that someone else should host it this time instead. We'll be back to normal service next time. I'll do my best to do some writeups

    Please register your interest in the table below:
    Forum Name -
    Time Zone - What Time Zone do you live in
    Characters? - Do you have characters already build for PvP or able to be adapted for PvP?
    Host? - Can you host a PvP game.
    Preferred Dates - Which of the two weeks above do you prefer, if any.

    I should probably be free, barring an unexpected family vacation. Hopefully this opportunity catches new faces.

    I do wonder how/if this will coincide with the MFO (usually in January-ish, right?) though.

    EDIT: You mean that they are Monday to Sunday dates, right? Section: "So when will PvP week be?".

    The last winter MFO started on the 2nd of January (first Friday of the new year), the previous one to that began on the 17th of February. There shouldn't be clashes, but it if there are the first week should still be ok.

    And, yes, that should be Monday-Sunday.

    I don't have any PvP experience even with local friends but I have been thinking of trying it for some time. I said i don't have any characters but i have a max block blizzy so i guess she counts. But i will also try to make a couple more characters (one at least).

    I skimmed over the PvP guide and already downloaded it. It looks like a great resource, thanks to all involved and especially you for that colony. I neither have high end stuff (RWs especially) nor many skillers but i will probably find some builds suitable for me.

    A (fire?) trapper (Satoko was the most fun PvP char i read) and a melee paladin (smiter/charger) are what i would like to try.

    Thanks for the early notification colony.

    EDIT: My time zone is +2 but my sleeping is very irregular (still a student) so it is actually very flexible.

    Why not? I think I should have some free time during those dates. Time to find my gear for my 'sins.

    Very glad to see you taking helm col, I would love to be playing every night but, as you know, RL is busy at the moment I can't free up a whole week. I'm not at all possessive about PvP Weeks - the more the merrier as far as I am concerned, it's open to anyone to host. I'll add myself to the table, hopefuly I'll be able to drop in for a game or two. I'm only jealous of the people who do get good games every night :)

    Here's hoping to see some new players (*cough*sirpoops*cough*)- as Bass said in the last PvP week join up thread, this is the perfect opportunity for giving it a go. PvP week is about introducing new players and everyone having fun. Believe me, it isn't in the interest of the small SPPvP community to scare new players off by smearing them all over the Blood Moor.

    Oops, bad timing for me. 21-27 is almost impossible, I would be offline almost all the time, 27-3 is almost the same, maybe I'll be available from 2nd January, but am not sure :scratchchin:

    I guess this would be the perfect opportunity to get introduced to the crazy world of PvP. My characters certainly aren't built for PvP, but I don't think I'd be making new ones just for this, and I think/hope some of the ones I have can be modified to be somewhat passable.

    First week probably won't work well for me unfortunately, as I'll be with family during christmas and such, but we'll see.

    Oh yes, this fits in pretty nicely. GF will be out of town, and university stuff will be on a break. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the moor :thumbup:

    I'll have to see if I get some new char built for the occasion, it would be nice to build an assassin once again, my first ever pvp char was a nice Campersin. Yeah, I know you all love them, bow sins with traps. But she really didn't appreciate charging paladins, so.. off to look at the skills :evil2:

    I have one char that could probably get close, but otherwise I might try to speed one thru...I can't guarantee any set amount of time, but would like to get waxed a little bit...I can likely host as I've been able to thru Hamachi, but I haven't hosted a normal game before. Hopefully I can clear some time to be able to get some games in...

    Unfortunately I'm busy on Dec. 27-31.

    I'm also not sure what quality internet connection I'll have. Probably decent enough to play.

    I have not made an assassin since starting single player nearly two years ago. I think I'll make one. Or maybe a teleporting bow-barb.

    Just noticed everyone wrote 21th instead of 21st. (Thanks, San.)

    In my irritated, final-exam mode, I couldn't stand leaving it alone, so I fixed all the dates.

    Good to see a decent level of interest. The 21st seems to be the most popular start date, if it stays that way it'd be nice to have someone co-host the week with me, I'm not sure how much play time I'll get when I'm at my parents' house, and I definitely won't be able to host there.

    I'm sure Nagisa only dragged me here for the pure purpose of pwning me with his Zon, but I think it's about time I got in on the PvP action :) I don't think I'll be able to throw together a PvP character anytime soon, so I guess one of my MF'ing Sorcs will have to do.
