Hi,


Ayri and I are hosting a pk tournament on the 21st of March around 5-6 game time. ( right after wedding ). It's going to be knock-out rounds with a lot of prizes ( a huruk, orbs, gold). Depending on how many ppl participate , the more prizes there will be. Ayri and I will not participate, but the winner gets a shot for an extra 20 mill after defeating me if he chooses to.


The rules are simple :


1. No astral spells or silencing wands.
2. No elementals, soldiers, or imps.
3. For those who don't have the herbalism skill, they are NOT allowed to use herbalism (alembic)


I think that pretty much covers it. If you're interested in participating let me know before the 21st, as in talk to me IN game. Don't post on here unless you have questions about the rules. I have also asked an Imm to host this so everything will run smoothly.


Thanks,



Santino and Ayri



Leftovers: Contact SANTINO in game..not ME....thanks bunches... Ayri

This is a good idea. PK could use a bit of a kick start, and this could be a nice way to revitalize it.

I think no MM'd items is a good rule. If the reason we are disallowing astral wizard spells is because they are looked upon as cheap, how would everyone feel about prohibiting spells like memory drain as well? This doesn't really effect me since my key spells are mastered anyway... just a thought.

Maybe the immortals would be game to award some prizes in addition to Santino. Seems he's gonna be taking a huge hit on this tournament, and doesn't really stand to gain anything at all.

If I had known about this two days ago, perhaps I would have put off archoning a bit... but I'll still enter. How will people be paired up against each other? Maybe we could use existing PK records to determine seeding and run it like a NCAA tournament.

Yankee, mem draining is not oppressive at all. Most people know how to mem in order to keep their good spells out of the way, not to mention that it's only really good when coupled with mental disruption, which never lands. Another way to restrict this would be to make a rule of no fleeing or calming once combat begins. This would mean if you choose to open combat with mem drain then you can only do it once. If someone does flee or calm they could be disqualified.

I know we are adding in no Flee/smoke etc....it would mean automatic disqualification.

I don't see why fleeing in general should always be so frowned upon. Make some limitations, but not just outright ban fleeing :(

If you are fleeing from a fight to the death, it's probably do to something cheap or to prolong the fight unnecessarily. As far as I can tell, it's not a CPK tournament where the participants are allowed to do anything in their power to win. Which, I should add, the game seems to punish, anyway.

If it's divided into classed fights, chances are some people are going to be at a disadvantage with new opponents. Whether it be based on camped stats, or maybe level difference. If I have to fight Murdoch, it's probably going to be a massacre. But I should at least be able to try and flee, and set up some form of a strategy on the fly. It only seems fair.

(From Yagami):

Or you might just be trying to wear them down (eg, you have a regen advantage like sanctify) or make use of spells (like memory drain or disjunction) which can't be cast in combat.

Of course, you might classify those tactics as 'cheap'. But there are good tactical reasons to run away before re-engaging.

Mental Disruption lands often enough, Anagon, out of the last 10 casts against me, I only resisted it three times...

That was with two rings of spell turning, and other SVS equipment too.

Yes, I'm still grumpy about the change to rings of spell turning.

:hand:

smoke bomb ban is fine, but don't ban fleeing altogether, especially in the lower classes where class diversity is an issue.
