The time has come.
Registration has now ended for all brackets.
The battle royales (#1 25-80 and #2 81-144) will be open until next friday.

pk.vyst.come will be the site for all updated information on what to use.

Those that were planning to donate prizes please send a parchment with what you can donate to me (Eron).

Any guides who wish to help oversee the preliminary rounds contact me as well.

All characters have now been seeded and will be put into brackets by this weekend so KEEP CHECKING FOR UPDATES ON SITE.
I will post here when there is an update.

If you want to know your seed and your first round opponent find me and I will tell you :)

PKERS/NONPKERS ALIKE!!
We will be having NCAA like bracket betting for the archon bracket.
The way it works is you get the preliminary rounds and you decide who will win each fight and go on all the way to the finals.
Extra points for guessing any of the final four.
This will be a massive pool. I will be putting in AT LEAST 100k to start the pot out. Everyone who wants to fill out a bracket will put 50k into the pot. You can make as many brackets as you want, but each one is 50k.

If there is enough interest I will also hold betting for the hero bracket.

Let's get this started!

Rules will be clarified on the website before Monday.
The basic gist is no silence, sleep or mem-drain in any form.
If you surge a spell and one of these result, the log must show it.
ALL FIGHTS MUST BE LOGGED!
If you cannot log, I must know ahead of time.

If you forfeit or die to traps you lose.

If you do not fight your opponent for the first round after Tuesday, you will be dqed.

All fights will take place after Monday 12am. You must nicely ask a guide to log/see the x challenges y, x defeats y or x forfeits in order for the fight to be validated.
If there is no guide on, you must till one enables.

If I am on, I can watch for you.

There is no specific hour/time you have to fight in. Just work with whoever you have to face and get the job done :) If you need me to assist in this area please email me -Eronangel@yahoo.co

Final note: It took about 2 and half hours to seed everyone. Everyone was treated equally and the seeding will not change.
Seeding was based on your lpk percentage, your level (or archon level) and number of pks. There were no 'close calls'.

Any questions contact me :)

Due to some added players there has been some changes.
I WILL NOT ADD ANYONE ELSE NOW SO GO AWAY!

The bracket style is going to be weird and akward. Some 'random' numbers get benefits, but thats the luck of the draw.

If you are from bracket 3 or 4 and I told your possible opponent, more than likely it has changed.

There are now 10 competitiors in Brackets 1 & 2.
17 in Bracket 3 (we will take bets on this now)
25 in Bracket 4 (bets will be taken on this as well)

The number one seed in bracket 3 has changed to.
1. Wafflefry

Repeat: Registration for all the bracketed events has now closed.
Registration for betting has not yet begun.
Registration for the battle royales will not end till next friday.

I extended the time as much as I could, but if I make anymore changes in brackets the betting section will never come up.

Some people are going to complain. Just realize it took a long time and everything was done very precise. You were seeded by a certain pk percentage, number of wins and archon level.

The brackets and OFFICIAL rules will be up.

A lot of people are asking for more restrictive rules which is surprising considering I eliminated 3 major spells :P

This late into the tournament it will be unfair and hard to put new rules in.

Instead I am going to have the "Cheap List"
It will be a list of things not against the rules, but cheap to use in this tourney. If you do something from that list it will get you on the "Cheap Bastard" list which will follow you throughout the tournament and have your later opponents (if any) aware of how you fight.

Considering I haven't even told what the prizes are, most of you are here to have fun and/or see how you stack up against others.
So hopefully this will deter some of the cheapness.

If you have any suggestions on what to put on the cheap list, tell me in game. I will take suggestions up until tonight.

Ok the brackets are up and fixed. They do not display Byes past the first round.
The betting brackets will.

Some people are complaining about placement of the Byes,
but it was very hard with odd numbers. Some sides have advantages, but even if I switched them around they still would be that way.

I am going to post betting brackets on another topic.

Let me make this clear:
I want all archon betting brackets in my email tonight.

If you can't find your opponent TELL ME and make sure to imail them. I will dq people, but not unless I have to.
If you both cannot be on at the same time, we will work something out.

But no matter what:
Contact me
AND
your opponent.

All of these people are in clans. Please clan log/find them.
I will not delay the tourney (especially in archon) unless you specifically talk to me.

For those who have moved to the next round,
as long as you have my approval to fight go for it.

If timezones require me to change you around. THEN TELL ME.
This char has been in social all day, I got all tells.


Tomorrow I will not be on like this, so take advantage of me!
