Shatter pots actually can disrupt you (doesnt matter if you have pots or not)

But the whole "Do it in tram" idea is retarded.

What format is this tournament? Round Robin?

I would do bo1 for the first rounds then bo3 for the rounds after that. If it's 8 teams or less, you should consider bo3 for the first rounds. That is the most popular format in pro gaming for spontaneous tournaments with no past records, as it is more skill based than luck, and also more enjoyable for viewers. You can also throw in a bo1 losers bracket before the second round of winners to give one underdog team a chance, it's always exciting to see that team exceed expectations if they are good enough.

Thing about it all, is if there's 50 spectators, it's going to be lag central. There's a couple issues, UO could fix them all...shatter pots from outside the arena, you can see text from people outside arena while inside which creates more lag, not enough on/off options like reflect magic, disarm, poisoning, food, weaken bug, protection, forms, etc. The bolded needs to be fixed immediately. Hopefully Messena or what is actually reading this thread as I think the turnout will be pretty nice and can ask some coffee head programmer to patch this over the next 2 weeks. I won't hold my breath.

Doing it in trammel ruins the entire thing.

I'm looking for a new partner because mine can't make it if it's on a Saturday. Also, can they push back the entry deadline? Thanks, you're quite the gem.

The entry deadline is over a week away, that should be plenty of time for people to get their teams together.

Also, Sept 15 is THREE weeks away, plenty of time for people to try to be there. If there ARE problems, like kvt has said, the participating teams will be talked to to try to find the best way to let everyone participate.

Haha a "mage" dueling tourny with mystic. You already went half the mile and got rid of spell weave and poison, why not just make it without necro and myst? Gets rid of the EO bug which is just stupid and anyone who has to use it anyway is terrible. And gets spell trigger out of there too. Or do mages nowadays rely on these to kill, instead of counter casting/cycling/timing/skill. Which is actually fun.

just sayin

Not trying to bottlekncked this tourny into mages who know how to actually cast, but either make it open or dont, dont just make a small number of templates applicale to bring masses of mystics and necros into it. just my 2 cents.

Happy I play on LS where people play reds and would never actaully suggest a dueling tourny in tram. I hear its nothing but bright blue and gate fighting there on atlantic. just like it always has been with HOT DEI CYN back in the day..

Hey Careless, before you go trolling shit, you should quite possibly read the fucking rules, dipshit.

No Pack - i.e. no trigger/heal stone
No Omen bugging - i.e. no omening yourself or stat bugging once being omened

You're welcome.

Haha got me. For sure. But I still stand by what I said, a pure mage tourny would be more fun in my opinion. but thats just me.
