91-120? doesn't really seem possible for most level 91 people to kill 120 people but maybe it is

It was organized this way so people who aren't at the max before for they multi have a chance to particpate. It is much easier to gain a few levels to 90 than it is to level to 120 just to be competitive. We want people to come and have fun, not worry if they have no chance and ignore the whole event.

GMT is minus one hour from CST. Yes, you can enter more than one character providing they are not in the same bracket.

If you win why wouldn't you be eligible for the next one...if it ever happens again. Shouldn't part of the challenge be dethroning the person who won the last tournament?

No fleeing means.. you can't flee out of combat? or you just can't flee out into non-lpk?

If you flee, then you admit you can't win and forfeit the tournament.

This is no holds barred. Honor among warriors. I refuse to limit the players options. If you have silence and want to use it, there is nothing in the rules that will stop you or your opponent. Nevertheless, if you and your adversary both agree before the match to not cast silence, and tell me, I will make it a rule for that match only. Following a zero tolerance policy, if any rule is violated, the offender shall be booted from the tournament.

No holds bared? Cheap fighting? But fleeing to heal is not ok?

The goal of arena is to fight, not to flee. I consider fleeing to be the cheapest dirtiest form of fighting. Make certain to set whimpy to zero.

As far as equipment fragging, it is the same as silence. You both can agree not to use acid blast. Plus, the rune arena is LPK just to make it more difficult to lose items. It shouldn't be a problem, but if you think it would, you can talk to your opponent.

So how is it possible to enter more than one character? is it that you are going to make sure people don't get fighting times the same as that person's other character(s) that fight in the tournament?

Fleeing should be fine so long as you don't flee out of pk. For example, part of psionics strength is being able to flee...then attack quitely while you're unaware of them.

You can enter multiple characters as long as they aren't in the same bracket. The tournament is stagnated. When one bracket is finnished, a new one will begin. If time runs long, we will start multiple brackets at the same time. Then we will adjust matches to compensate for multiplaying.

In regards to fleeing, the rules are firm. It is not alowed. If you want to try to mem wipe several times, you'll need to calm.
