Random Tournament 2010!

Welcome to Random Tournament 2010! I've been hosting these the last few years, and we have had a lot of participation and interesting bad rolls.

Previous: 2009 and 2008

This year has some changes implemented to account for 1.13 being released.

Rules:

1. 1.13 For this tournament
2. Hardcore only
3. Any player setting is allowed, please no cheese for popping chest.
4. No MP
5. Single Pass
6. All quest do not have to be completed neither do all waypoints need to be activated. Your points will be affected though.
7. You are allowed to go back to a previous difficulty to complete a quest(Imbue, Socket, etc)
8. Any merc allowed. They must use your Armor, Helm, Shield, and Weapon if able(So act 3 Mercenary will use your shield type and sword type if you got swords)
9. Starter equipment may be used.
10. Replays are allowed, and no maximum tries.
11. Some one else must roll you up.
12. You do not have to use any skill you get chosen if you choose not to(for instances you get increased stamina, you can elect not to place a point into it.)
13. Before you start Nightmare or Hell, you must get a re-roll on your 5 skills(You can elect to do this beginning in Act4/5 incase you want have a non-stop session, or other reasons such as limited internet)
14.Re-roll: You are allowed to get a tournament skill, weapon, and armor choice rerolled once per character. Example: You get Sash chosen as belt, and choose reroll, it can be anything, including a sash again. Sometimes fate decides for you. Must be done at beginning of character.
14. Atma/GoMule is allowed as an extended stash only
15. FAM is allowed
16. No save and exit when your about to bite the dust.


End date: 3months with no updates.

Scoring is simplified this year.

1 point for waypoint(per act: 9,9,9,3,9)
1 point for quest(per act: 6,6,6,3,6)
Lowest Level Guardian Wins extreme bragging rights!

Tournament Specific Restrictions and Rules:

Website for Rolls:
http://www.random.org/integers/
Stat Points: Any work, no sense in limiting yourself in anyway, and upon a respec, you my replace them however.

Skill Points: You are given three skills that stick with you throughout time. These three are done on a Random 1-3 and then normal tree method so they truely are random as to what tree they show up in.

Your other 5 are randomly chosen with a 1-3 on a each tree as well. Once the split up is decided, you are given your skill set. Upon reaching NM your skills are once again rerolled and then again upon entering Hell.

****Useless skills happen: Meaning something that provides zero benefit to the character(forever skills only count on the initial roll) Examples include: Spears being used with no Javelin with Javelin skills being rolled, Skeleton Mastery with no Skeletons or Revives, etc. IF you can NOT figure out if a skill will be useless or not, please ask!)

Equipment: To make it interesting I feel it should be changed a little to help out. Armor is now classified as Heavy, Light, or Medium. This allows a more diversified body Armor type, but keeps to the theme of Random. Though it is a 3, 6, 6 split every type is available by act 2.

Weapons: I'm going to allow 3 Weapons total, from 2 different types. This helps in the case of an Amazon, and allows for more types. In the case of an Assassin or Amazon choosing their class weapon, they are allowed to. Amazon character's can choose each subtype of her skills as well if so chooses while Assassin characters can choose Two claws. This grants each of them four weapon choices due to the +1 from class specific.

RANDOM CHARACTER RULES: Unless specified to not include, an Amazon rolled gets: Bow, Javelin and possibly Spear depending on Class one. Necromancer gets a Wandx2 and other random, Sorceress gets Orbx2, Staff x2, Paladin gets Scepter(can possibly be x2 if it rolls to be the multi one) Assassin gets Claw x2.

An example would look like this:

Vang chooses Barbarian and I choose Sword x2(either one or twohanded) and Javelin.

My forever skills are chosen(Mind you I assign 1 to Combat, 2 Warcries, 3 mastery for Barbarian, you may assign 1,2,3 to whichever you prefer)

2-5, 2-2, 1-4, which equate to: Find Item, Find Potion, Stun.

Next five are: 1-5, 1-7, 2-1, 2-9, 3-1 which equate to: Sword Mastery, Double Throw, Concentrate, Howl, and Warcry. And these five will change each difficulty.

Heavy Armor
Leather Gloves
Skull Cap
Belt
Bone Shield
Leather Boots
Crystal Sword
Claymore
Pilum

You have the ability to reroll one of your Forever skills, Equipment, and Weapon type. Not any of the skills for each difficulty.

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

Reserved for clarifying rules

1. Mercenary MUST use your equipment if able(So all will use your Armor and Helm type)
2. Tournament Skills are allowed to be respecialized as well incase that comes up when you go to the next act, so they aren't permanent incase you wanted to place points into one for Normal but not use it in nightmare.
3. RANDOM CHARACTER RULES: Unless specified to not include, an Amazon rolled gets: Bow, Javelin and possibly Spear depending on Class one. Necromancer gets a Wandx2 and other random, Sorceress gets Orbx2, Staff x2, Paladin gets Scepter(can possibly be x2 if it rolls to be the multi one) Assassin gets Claw x2.
4. Druids are allowed 1 point into Werebear and Werewolf to allow the use of abilities in the shapeshift tree(more if it is one of their skills of course.
5. Javelin as a weapon usable in Spear and Javelin tree, while Axe for Barbarian does not constitute the ability to use Axe Mastery(This is because you could effectively make a two tree class and be quite more powerful.
6. Amazon weapons can be only used, but its a harsh tradeoff with the lack of weapons and inability to gamble.
7. CTC, Charges and passive skills granted from items are allowed. Activated class skills(Berzerk, Firebolt, etc) and outside skills are not allowed.
8. Just to make sure everyone is on the same page, you can only use starter equipment and your chosen items. So if you can't fill a slot for a while it'll have to stay empty. (Like circlet for example can't gamble until 20)

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

@Virtue I'll get you. Actually you can keep it as double bow, but your javelin tree will still be valid since your starter javelin counts, so I just want to make sure you don't want to get a javelin instead.

Javelin: Jab

Weapons:
Stag Bow and Reflex Bow
Long Bow and Long War Bow

Equipment:

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

@Virtue, everything looks good except my armor, its either Light, Medium, or Heavy, I'm assuming Light since its a Breat plate, but feel free to reroll that on a 1-3.

Reroll: Greaves, Blades of Ice, and Short Sword

Can't reroll Magical Arrow as its the difficulty skills. I can reroll one of the frozen/tournament ones though.

No worries then, I'll just keep it. I am confused this time, I admit that.

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

Jeez. Now the edit button is effing up on me.

Ok. Thanks Vang!

Can I get a reroll on Fire Blast, Heavy Armor, and Broad Sword?

(And I assume you mean chain gloves?)

Thanks loads for the re-roll, Vang!
And thanks for hosting the tourney again! I've been looking forward to this one!

Enter Malkuth, who will be victorious (over the early parts of A1 anyways...)

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

I'm not sure I understand the equipment rules exactly, but I'd like to participate.

Do I have to choose a class, or is it rolled? In any case, I want a random character class, so please roll (1-amazon, 2-assassin, 3-barbarian, 4-druid, 5-necromancer, 6-paladin, 7-sorceress).

Equipment, do I have to choose weapon classes? I prefer random, please roll depending on class (including class-specific weapons were applicable, with amazons, having class javelin, class bow, and class spear options, assassins having dual or single claw options, and sorceresses having the class orb option)

How do exceptional and elite items figure in (not that I expect to get that far)?

I can do that. As for exception and elite, you just use the upgrade type of your allowed equipment. So you can only use effectively very few items in the game since all you can use is the type you got rolled and their upgrade counterparts. Rolling You now.

Amazon, Amazon Weapons, Spear x2, Bow x1, and Javelin x1

Tournament Skills: Freezing Arrow, Magical Arrow, and Lightning Bolt

Javelin: Poison Javelin, Plaque Javelin
Magical and passive: Dodge
Bow/Xbow: Exploding Arrow, Strafe

Weapons:
Reflex Bow, Maiden Spear, Maiden Pike, Maiden Javelin

Equipment:
Light Armor
Greaves
Plated Belt
Chain Gloves
Large Shield
Bone Helm

Just looking at this, what exactly is Dragon Strike? and I also seems to have six skills as well 2-1-3. I guess I'm going to need a removed skill if you remember which one you rolled last. Otherwise I'll need a whole new line of skills.

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

I'm still a bit confused here, but I got things more-less.
What happens with 5 skills that got rerolled in NM? I cannot use them anymore, right? Should all of them be rerolled, or just ones that I want?
thanx

edit:
Just updated game to 1.13c, just becouse of this tourney... darn you Vang :grin:
Can someone roll me something random? Weapon same way as Sir Lister's. thanx :)

Re: Random Tournament 2010!

Did a little pre-rolling myself to determine class and weapon types, and the fates determined that I should enter with a Barbarian using Swords (two handed only if possible) x2 and Throwing Weapons. If someone would be so kind to roll for me, I'd be very much appreciative.

Rule clarification request - I didn't see anything in the rules about Mods. My character will personally be Vanilla, as that's what I play HC on the SPF Ladder, but I just wanted to ask anyway. Also, I just wanted to make sure that GoMule is also allowed as an extended stash, because ATMA is explicitly listed in the rules. Thanks!
