Revived: â€˜Opposing Forceâ€™ PvP Team Tournament Round 2 â€¦ not as many takers as Iâ€™d hoped in July; perhaps since people are back from the summer that more will be interested or available this time around. â€˜Opposing Forceâ€™ PvP Team Tournament Introduction This is a 2v2 style PvP tournament where you partner up and take on another 2 person team. This is not a fixed team setup in the original sense; you can have different partners and different combinations of opponents so you get a different dueling field for each match! Date Tentatively Iâ€™m looking for at least 15 participants before I go ahead with the tournament. If enough participants sign up, it will start on Saturday October 7, 12am (EST) and will end 4 weeks later, on Saturday November 4, 6pm (EST). Sign up for participation will be from now until the tournament starts. General Rules Duels take place in the Blood Moor (Hell difficulty) after the area has been cleared of monsters and all parties have signified readiness. If you die, you must stay in town until the duel is over. If one member of a team exits the Moor area, they cannot re-enter until the next duel. If both members of a team exit the Moor area, they automatically lose the duel. â€¢ You are allowed to enter in a maximum of 2 duelers for this tournament. â€¢ No sharing of equipment between team members. â€¢ No bugged, hacked, or duped items/characters. â€¢ No potions, mercenaries, potion prebuffing, chance-to-cast prebuffing, wells, or shrines. â€¢ Absorb rules: +max resist counts as absorb and each character is allowed two sources of absorb per element. â€¢ Sources of Poison Length Reduce will count as a source of poison absorb. â€¢ Cleansing is considered a source of PLR. â€¢ Having points in the Paladinâ€™s resist auras and relying on its passive +max counts as a source of absorb.

Matches The setup of this tournament is open ended, to assist in more accessible duels. All you need to do is to grab yourself and 3 other duelers and youâ€™re good to go! However matches are limited to some guidelines: â€¢ You can only duel a specific combinations of people once. IE, Team Player A and B vs Player C and D can duel once for a best 3 of 5 but not again, for scoring purposes. â€¢ You may only have the same partner for a maximum of 3 times. IE, Player A may do matches AB-CD, AB-EF and AB-GH. After that, Player A may not partner up with Player B, although he may duel against Player B on an opposing team. â€¢ You will be scored for the first 20 matches you undertake. Any subsequent matches will not be scored. â€¢ If you have 4 players in a game, a good way to get 3 matches is to rotate. IE, AB-CD, AC-DB then AD-BC. Etiquette â€¢ If there are 5 â€“ 7 players in the game, please instigate a rotation with everyone so you donâ€™t have people waiting around for too long. â€¢ On your initial match, try to choose a match combination to have a balance in teams. â€¢ I encourage you to duel a wide variety of opponents instead of a select few. Winning When both members of a team die, the other team wins the duel. Matches are best 3 out of 5 duels. Everyone needs to keep a close watch on their own points so no mistakes are posted by others. Scoring will be awarded as follows. 5 points for the winning team, three duels won 3 points if your team won two duels 2 points if your team won one duel 1 point for no wins If both teams are down to 1 person each and they both die at the same time, whoever dies first is determined by in game messaging. Example: MattedFur was slain by Jengus, Jengus was slain by MattedFur; Jengus would be the victor because he killed his opponent first. No replacement duels are necessary. The host computer is the one that is the most accurate, so base the death off of that. Prizes The top three scorers will graced with my artistic skills by being immortalized in an Olympic podium style picture. Also they will receive my personal thumbs up. Top Rookie Scorer (person who has never been in a pvp tournament) will get to choose 1 plain skiller from my stash. (Iâ€™m sorry but Iâ€™m not will to part with he vita/sustenance/FHR ones just yet.) I am RWM/RRM so any vanilla players who enter should note this. Random Notes During the tournament, you cannot mule more beneficial items to your character so have everything you think youâ€™ll need in your stash before the official start date. Remember to wait for your opponents to signify their readiness before you start to fight them. If you have any questions about anything pertaining to this tournament thread, please post here as soon as possible so I can clarify for you. My advice to you is to keep dueling and posting the results so I can update my Excel sheet regularly. Iâ€™ll try to post standings periodically and if there is any question on the numbers, Iâ€™ll be happy to go over the calculations with you. Good luck to all, and Iâ€™ll see you in the Blood Moor!
