The citizens of Ardent grow restless. With the departure of Sugarsweet there is a clear void in their entertainment, and the Event Committee is already busy planning a mysterious activity for all servers to partake in. In the meantime, the peasants clamor for games of glory and violence! Farming and production have ground to a halt as they riot in the towns for diversions from their mundane tasks. The Royal Organizer himself was ripped out of the Castle's safety and thrown into the streets. The citizens demanded, and he complied. They called for blood and he vowed its abundance. They wished to see who among the Protectors of the Realm were most worthy. Who could stand against the vile hoards within the Dungeons? How would they fare when challenging the powerful foes who lay fuming within, waiting for an opportunity to extract vengeance against their captors? They asked, and he delivered, and thus the games were born.

... And thus your fate was sealed.


The Tournament of Champions - Register Here

You there, hero! By Royal Decree you have been drafted to take part in the Tournament of Champions! What is this you ask? Why, merely the grandest competition to bless the Realms! Win honor and glory for your Village and Guild through trial by combat. Compete against other teams with the same victory in mind, and lay waste to their dreams while fulfilling your own. How does it work? Why I'll tell you of course, fret not!

This Tournament will pit teams against one another within Heroic Halls of Salvation in a race for points. Whichever team ends up accumulating the greatest number of points, will claim the prizes! A rather simple concept in theory, but difficult to execute in practice.

Teams will be created for you, so you do not need to form your own. Simply sign up and you will be placed within a team. The teams will be balanced with a variety of level ranges and roles.

How do you earn points?
Points are rewarded through a number of objectives:
  • Overall Completion time
  • Number of deaths
  • More coming soon...
Once every team has finished their run, all the scores are tallied and the team with the most points wins!

What are the requirements?
So long as you have access to Heroic Halls of Salvation and are level 25 or above, you may participate.

What are the rules and regulations?
There are only a few standard rules to comply with:
  • Do not interfere with another team's run
  • Zingara are not allowed
  • No Darrig potions
  • More may come soon...
What are the dates and deadlines?
Here is a brief run-down of our schedule. There are currently 4 different timeslots that participants can sign up for. Hopefully this will allow players from any time-zone an opportunity to compete. Teams will be assigned a timeslot, and meet in Heroic Halls for their run at the given time.
03/2604/0104/0304/0404/05
Registration opens!

Here is your chance to participate in a once in a lifetime contest which may very well cost you your life!
Registration Ends!

For those brave enough to compete, you do us proud. Luck be with you!
Timeslot 1:7 PM EDTTimeslot 2: 12 PM EDT
Timeslot 3: 9 PM EDT
Timeslot 4: 5 PM EDT
How do we sign up?


Players will sign up through the following registration form

What are the prizes?
You can expect your team to be showered with riches beyond compare should you come out on top. Please rejoice, and bless your patrons the Otters for their generosity!

The winning team will earn the following:
  • 100 Crowns
  • 5 Keys of the Red Darrig
  • 5 Sockets
Participants will also be rewarded with a participation prize for their efforts! This will be a Key of the Red Darrig anf Socket!

Well, have I sold you? Is your interest firmly within my possession? Excellent, excellent. In that case, what are you waiting for? Sign Up! Are there any other questions or concerns you would like me to address?

How serious is this?
This is all for fun of course! Friendly competition. Toxicity and bad-sportsmanship is fiercely prohibited.

Do you have to be high level / well geared?
So long as you meet the requirements listed above, you are able to enter. The peasants would like to see a wide and diverse candidate pool. So lower levels are more than welcome! Please, do not let your level nor gear dissuade you from joining in on the fun.

Is signing up a commitment? What if I have to cancel?
So long as you have not signed up as a leader, it is alright if you are unable to make it. While we do encourage participants to try to arrive in time for their run, we understand that pressing concerns may draw them elsewhere. This is why we will ensure each team has a redundant set of healers and tanks!

Do I have to be a tank to lead?
No! So long as you are comfortable leading the zone, you can opt in for a leadership role. You can be any class / role. Leaders are essential in order for this Tournament to work.

I have never completed the Dungeon before, can I still join?
Once again, so long as you meet the criteria (level 25 and access to Heroic Halls), then you are most definitely welcome to join.

Can I sign up with multiple characters?
Only one character per account is allowed entry.

Can I show up impromptu?
Yes, you can. Although this will not guarantee you a slot on the team, if a member of the team fails to arrive, players from the crowd will be selected to take their place.

Teams

I tried to create balanced teams based on who signed up for each time-slot. It wasn't particularly easy, because there were cases where we had missing tanks, healers or heavy hitters. But the community came through and over 100 players signed up! This made it possible to create teams with similar composition of at least 1 leader, 2 tanks, 2 healers and a 5 DPS. Some have more, but those minimums were met across the board.

Below are the teams for the Tournament. Each Timeslot has 2 teams, meaning that one team will begin, and the other will start about 10 - 15 minutes afterwards.

If I hear anyone complaining about their team or individual team-members they will be barred from future tournaments.

Results

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in the Event! I was very happy to see teams sharing strategies and setting up practice sessions with each other prior to their run. It was great to see new friendships formed. Thanks to the leaders who stepped up and organized their groups and to the subs who filled in for those who were unable to attend. This wouldn't have been possible without everyone!

I hope each team had a blast regardless of the outcome! In the future, if there is enough interest for another instance of this event we will tweak balancing and points. Now without further adieu, the results!

Results were based on time of completion and number of unique deaths. Time should be within +- 5 seconds of accuracy. Please let me know if you feel I have any values incorrect. I started my timer as soon as I saw the Team lead accept the quest and begin the run. Each death will add 15 seconds of time to the result.

I doubt I'll be able to make it to level 25 in that time as I'm still very new, but this is really cool! Good luck everyone :)

why is this event on US3 only?
Because regular players on US3 are organizing and running it. If you want to host events you can apply to the Otters and they may contribute to prizes. Whatever servers you are on.

How are the teams selected, and who will do the selecting?
When signing up, players can choose between 1 and 4 potential time-slots. So they will be grouped with a team in one of their selected time-slots. I'm assembling the teams myself to make sure that each has a high level tank, healer, DPS and some redundant ones too. I try to keep the teams balanced with roles and levels, so one group isn't clearly superior to the others and so that players of all levels can participate.

In the future I may change it to a budgeting system. We could have X amount of team captains, and each has a "budget". So, they could choose which players from the participant pool they want on their team, and each would cost them. It would be structured in a way that all levels are selected. I was reluctant to use this approach since it feels very grade-schooly, but maybe some better ideas will crop up along the line.

That important thing is that the event has to be inclusive in order to get sponsored for prizes, thus I have to structure teams so a bunch of 95s can't come in and steamroll it. That'd be no fun

why is this event on US3 only?
Yes, pretty much what Kookaburra said :) This is not an Event Committee event, just something I wanted to try. We'll see how it goes

Hey everyone! Quick update, due to the number of participants (over 100!) who have signed up, I am making a reduction to the prize pool. This is because the team size is increasing from around 8 to 15. The winning team will now recieve 100 crowns and 5 sockets and keys for each member.

Participants will also be given a socket and key.

Thank you all for understanding
