    Tournament Idea: Team Battles

    I was thinking of a tournament idea and I thought of a Team game of some sort with the point scale from the Three Way Dance tournament.

    Idea:
    - There are 2 teams, everyone who signs up split in 2 teams randomly. Each with a team name.
    - Each player uses 2 characters, with each character being random.
    - Each character must stay within 2 acts of the each other.
    - Use the point using system from the Three way dance tournament for each player.
    - Each team would have a x amount of players, and out of all the players the points are added up for each team and of course highest wins. You add both your characters points up when they are dead from either death or beating the game.
    - You may trade items between characters if you like as well.
    - Each character is Hardcore and may only live once, no twinking of any kind.
    - You may be able to mule items off your character for storage.
    - Each character is random, using the random.org website for a random generator using 1-7.
    - All quests must be completed except Hell Nithalahk (however you spell it).
    - You can use any items and all rune combos, etc.
    - Any /player x setting may be used at any time during the game.
    - You are allowed to run any areas as much as much as you like on any difficulty.
    - You may trade any items between players on your own team but not on the other team.

    Just an idea right now, please give me suggestions or any help.

    Mabey it should be harder by limiting things?
    Mabey only one character?
    Mabey doing something besides points?

    One idea might be more teams. Like maybe 3-4 people in a team. I would find that more interesting since every member of the team will have to do their best if they want to win. And two chars per person might be too many but that might just be me :uhhuh: .

    Great Idea on the 3-4 teams, that is changed.

    Also on the 2 characters, this im thinking prolly 1 because most of the people will only want one. Could always vote :)

    It sounds like a very interesting idea, and quite a good basis for a tourney. Probably one character per person would be a good way to go, allowing trading between teammates. With 3-4 players per team, and having to keep them within an act or two of each other would make for a suitable competition.

    Would you be allowed to play multiplayer with your team mates?

    only SP for me, but if a team accept me, I'm in.

    I'm agree for only one char per person .

    I'm agree with an initial price :innocent:

    I'm agree with delay : by exemple one act by week. when you make a tourney you see people interested, but you don't see them two week after.

    I wouldn't mind joining up. I can host. After all is settled though I would like a restating of the updated rules to make sure I get what is going on. :)

    the only problem i have is that i dont always have time to play... i work tuesday and thursday nights, saturdays (i can work any time on satrudays) and sundays (usually work during the day, then to go to my gf's at night)... so the only problem with me is availability... but if people are willing to work with that, i will be in.. if not, i dont really mind...

    Thank you guys for suggestions and help.
    Thanks to Pyscho for his ideas/rules on his tournament

    - Each team will consist of 4 members (3 if there isnt to many)
    - Each team comes up with a "Team" name
    - I will update all teams on a daily basis with all current points and status.
    - 1 Character per person.
    - Cow King quests must be completed before proceeding to the next difficulty (to make it harder of course :)).
    - Quests do NOT have to be completed in order, but all Act quests must be completed before moving to the next act.
    - You may return to any difficulty for any reason at any time.
    - There is no time limit of signing up and It's never to late to sign up in the future, as long as you have 3 other people to start a team.
    - Any player may progress in the game, and not wait for any other team member, there is no restrictions for each team progressing at the same time.
    - The Point using system from the Three way dance tournament for each player will be used for each player in the tournament.
    - Each team will have 4 players, and out of all the players the points are added up for each team and of course, the highest wins.
    - Gambling is allowed anytime on any difficulty.
    - Each character is Hardcore and may only live once, no twinking of any kind.
    - You may be able to mule items off your character for storage.
    - Each character is random, using the random.org website for a random generator using 1-7 for each character.
    - All quests must be completed except Hell Nithalahk (however you spell it).
    - You can use any items and all rune combos, etc.
    - Any /players 1-8 setting may be used at any time during the game.
    - You are allowed to run any areas as much as much as you like on any difficulty.
    - You may trade any items between players on your own team but not on any other player on any other team.

    Heres points from 3 way dance:
    1 point per quest completed
    3 points for finishing Normal difficulty (making Destroyer)
    5 points for finishing Nightmare difficulty (making Conqueror)
    7 points for finishing Hell difficulty (making Guardian)

    1 point for killing the Cow King on Normal difficulty
    3 points for killing the Cow King on Nightmare difficulty
    5 points for killing the Cow King on Hell difficulty

    30 points per character finishing Normal (31 points including killing the Cow King)
    62 points per character finishing Nightmare (66 points including killing both Cow Kings)
    95 points per character finishing Hell (104 points including killing all Cow Kings)


    I was thinking of mabey making it the same character classes for each team like barbs/sorcs/amas/pallys etc. Just an idea :), mabey could be funner? What do u guys think?

    Can anyone think of anything to add to the rules to make it a little harder or funner or anything? Please feel free to do so.

    I'd be interested in doing it. I can host, except I have a very busy schedule as of late, which may or may not impede my ability to participate. However, it does seem like a fun idea. Cheers!

    Another idea would be that there can't be more then one character class in each group. Basically all characters in a group of four must be of different classes. So you won't have groups with like three necromancers and one amazon. This would have to be decided by the members of each team to who they will play as.

    Sounds like a good idea... making sure you dont get 4 fishymancers or anything like that on one team :lol:

    You didn't mention it but I think getting every waypoint could make it a bit harder/slower (except Hell Halls of Vaught since you don't have to do Hell Nithalakaaaylaka11!1!11!!!one!11one .. yes I dont know how to spell it)

    Also maybe to be even harder you could limit the number of skill trees to one (self chosen) or two (randomly chosen with random.org numbering each skill tree 1,2,3)...

    Great Idea Couvi, that is now added.

    Good Idea Bull(R), the skill tree idea sounds alright, but I think we are gonna stick with just all 3. Also that is added, must get all waypoints.

    Added:

    - Each Team must have all 4 different character classes.
    - Every Waypoint must be found.

    I'd really like to play but I don't know if I have time. :( This would be a perfect introduction to hardcore for me.

    Two things: 1) What number on the generator does each character represent?\
    2) When can we start :D?
