Depending on the level of interest I see - I'm considering bringing the Melee Tournament back to Eleriina...

My way of celebrating my safe return to my hometown.

Time/Place, Rules and Prizes have yet to be firmly set... but speak now if you'd like to see the contests of skill and strength return to our fair city!

Sounds like fun to me...even when Grok makes me kiss some dirt *spits out dirt*. Sometimes it just fun to kick back and watch a good fight.

Will there be prizes of is this just for fun? Either way fine with me..Maybe even have a board in Eleriina North showing the current rankings. icon_mrgreen.gif

::EDIT:: Stick foot in mouth here --> icon_surprised.gif neither the Pit or Eleriina North are affected by the PK tracker.

I'd like to see events like bringing in dominated monsters or something and having a team fight against it.  Reply with quote

Well, I suppose you can fist fight a few guys- you wont last long- but if buffs are allowed you might just have a chance icon_wink.gif

The tourneys used to be 1 week melee, next week caster, then some alternative tourneys like sharpshooter and shapeshifter.

Theres nothing stopping any char entering any event, your mage could enter the melee tourney and not cast offensive spells or defensive spells if they are disallowed also.

I'm actually looking at a new format... still putting it together here on paper... icon_smile.gif

I'm thinking something like a 'Melee Triathlon' ... icon_smile.gif It'd be run over a week or two - mainly to allow more folks to get involved and to spread out the competition to keep a handle on Server load.

The finals would be a big public spect.

What I'm envisioning now is a 'Full Buff/Full Weapons/Full Armor' vs Monster competition. Maybe some kind of a Race... (something like 'Take the Baton from BF to Eleriina, no teleporting / Rift Gates allowed... and have the Eastern PLains or Forest well stocked... icon_wink.gif Winners would get points.

Next event would be a Full Buff/Anything Goes one on one combat...

Finally, there'd be a no-buff/no-weapons one on one combat...

Top in points wins.

Prizes will be both Cash, and a unique weapon (still designing - sorry Bri, another Mod Reload... icon_wink.gif ) for first place, Cash for second and third.

Gotta confess - I'm not familiar with Headbust...

But I'm afraid that Wands would have to be left at home. Melee weapons and armor only...

More details and Qualifications Announcement soon!

Tournaments sound good! I cast my vote in favor even if I don't compete.

Now a few questions about the no weapons/no buffs tourney...

Does this mean no armor as well? What about attack feats (such as barbarian rage, knowkdown, power attack, etc.)? Does no buffs mean no belts, rings, amulets, bracers, etc.? How would one know if, for instance, bracers of dexterity are being used?
