    [UWLsc] New PvP Tourney. ISO: Participants. Prizes await!

    Hi everyone. Occasionally, you have to give back to society part of what society has given to you. Going along those lines, I have decided to organise a GM PvP tourney. I realise that Uber already has one going on, so this will probably take place after his, unless I get blessings from everyone taking part. In this post, I will list the ground rules, the quota of participants I need, as well as the prizes involved. This will also double as the signup thread, as well as the feedback thread. Depending on circumstance, the draw may be made here too. Without further ado, on to the rules:

    Ground rules:

    1) There is a level cap of 90 on entered characters.
    2) There is to be no health potting. Mana potting is allowed, unless you use ES. All blank belt slots are filled with id scrolls.
    3) No duped or hacked items allowed. Meaning that there is no use of 08valks for that wwsin, or bugged tals for sorcs.
    4) Not every match will take place in the blood moor. At least a couple of matches will take place elsewhere, so factor builds with that in mind. Places with IM will not be used.
    5) Everyone is restricted to two pieces of slow. Dooms count as slow.
    6) Try not to keep running away from opponents.
    7) Hammerdins are allowed in this tourney.
    8) No prebuffs are allowed. Only enchant prebuff is allowed vs pallys and barbs.
    9) For absorb, characters can only use a maximum of one piece of absorb, Items that increase max resistances are allowed, but are limited to two pieces, unless there is build specific gear such as dragon for auradins. Hammerdins cannot use absorb.
    10) All participants should submit a character build to me for reference.
    11) Item swapping is allowed as long as it does not break rules. Pally shields with resists and socketed with pgems are not allowed. Only socketed monarchs and other neutral shields are allowed, and even then, only pdiamonds can be socketed.
    12) Anything with charges cannot be used, be it life tap wands or hoto's oak sage charges. The item can be used, the charges cannot.
    13) No mercenaries allowed too.
    14) Characters are limited to EITHER increasing max resists or using a resist stack shield, or resist stack item such as jade talon for sins. If you use a resist stack item, you forfeit the right to use up to two pieces of max resist equipment.
    15) Maximum of two characters entered. Only one can be a paladin, to encourage diversity.
    16) Players are allowed to use two pieces of sorb against an auradin. An auradin is defined as a paladin that uses dragon, hoj and dual dreams to stack auras. Other similar characters such as freezealots, tesladins and dreamers are not subject to double sorb.
    17) Any disputes should be solved peacefully, and remember that this whole thing is about having fun GM duels, and winning is not everything.
    18) I will also sit in for some matches when the timing is right.

    Hammerdin specific rules:
    1) Hammerdins are limited to one piece of max resist gear swap from normal gear. They will not be allowed to sorb. Why? Hammerdins are a great class, but some thought should be spared for the fire sorcs who will get murdered by spurs+dwarf, even as the hammerdin himself does not suffer much damage reduction.
    2) A grief in stash is allowed and not BM in my books.
    3) Hammerdins have a maximum of 8 gear swap items in stash. This is again with respect to the fact that they suffer low damage penalties when gear switching to nullify opponents.


    How the draw works:

    There will be either 24 or 32 participants, depending on response. If there are 24, participants are grouped into trios, and if there are 32, groups of four. The preliminary round is round-robin, to make it fairer to builds that are unlucky enough to run into a build that dominates their own in the first match. The top two from each group will go through, and in case of a tie, win-loss differentials count. A win is achieved by reaching 5 wins first, with a difference of two. Tie-break rules apply in case of a deuce.

    Prizes and entry fees:

    The winner will receive:
    A legit Soj, a legit HR, 20maras and 5 organ sets
    Runner up gets:
    3 organ sets
    Third place finish gets:
    8hrs

    Prizes are subject to change if I see something more valuable to replace them. Suggestions are welcome.

    Entry fees: 3 pgems each character.

    The following is a list of people who have signed up (waiting for confirmation):

    zZz_yAwN - WW/Trap

    Ill sign up, although it would be nice to know when this is happening

    *xSmithenatorx2

    char: Smithenatroll (ww/trap)

    EDIT: Also, 2 pieces of max res needs to be more specific, since that could be a 4 LO monarch or a 2 LO helm and tgods, which makes dueling elemental characters a little uneven. I suggest the 10% rule?

    This means that you could use a LoLo helm, Tgods, and a Wisp against a trapper or light sorc. I don't know how much you've used a light based char, but as a point of reference my WWsin tanks (we estimated) 60-90 trap shots with Tgods and Claw Block alone. With 95 res and a wisp I could probobly sit in a trap field for 15 minutes.

    Besides that this looks good.

    Tgods and a whisp = 2 pieces of sorb, and if I am not mistaken, you can only use one? On any matter:

    i need to level :d

    and i'm going to be destroyed by smiters

    by no duped/bugged items you do mean that no "unperms" allowed at all right? even if it isn't a bugged item, unperm items such as pcoas, 45 life pcombs, etc.

    if not then i'm going to cry and back out

    Lol pcombats with 45life are "duped" (i.e "unperm")

    I wasn't sure yet. Sorry.

    Have to think this one through adn get back to you all. Really occupied with personal stuff right now. Sorry.

    That is right.

    WEll, unperms are really dupes, are they not? In any case, for a pcoa and 45pcomb, it really boils down to honesty, as they are POSSIBLE to have, just not probable. A 08valks has no place in 1.11. I cannot simply accuse everyone with 45pcombs as dupers, but if they want to forgo morality over a game, go ahead.

    Confirming my two characters. When you say they will be grouped, do you mean team duels?

    Confirming mine too~~ zZz_yAwN is me~
    I have to disagree on the sorb as well.. i think that it should be just one peice of absorb WITHOUT raising max resistances... except maybe for auradins.
