In this competition, anything is allowed. Spells, tokens, stats, whatever, you name it, you can use it. You just have to fight, stopping each other from doing that is not allowed.

The specialty in this event is that it will be a team competition. All participants will have to split in two teams. Also, a captain for each team has to be appointed.

The point is NOT to defeat the whole other team, though. I'll use a randomizer to create pairs of people and the desired outcome, win or loss. Team A will be asked to produce exactly that pattern, while team B's objective will be to prevent that. The attacking team doesn't have to stick to any schedules for their attacks, they can immidiately do them all, or postpone them for a bit. In the case of uneven teams, one player might have to attack more than one opponent, or defend against more than one opponent, so you'll want to get even teams to prevent that, for example, one defender has to lose and win in the same pattern. The attackers are not obliged to announce which attack they'll do when, and they are not limited to just one attack. Only the first fight between the two opponents matched for that pattern counts, though. For example, you can send somebody else from your team to test the defence, but you can't call it a test if you tried it yourself.

Example: My randomizer says that eon has to lose against dst in his teams attack. So, Eon will attack to lose, and dst will defend to lose. If Eon manages to lose, his team scores, is dst makes him win, her team scores.

The team with the higher score after 3 such rounds, each consisting of 2 patterns, one with team a attacking, one with team b attacking, and each taking place on a saturday evening in the marble dale park, wins, and the captain will get a bunch of prices to give out to his or her comrades.

You will want to have a nicely mixed team of all MP-levels. If you have too little players from a level, the few unlucky ones will have to do more fights, and probably get into the situation of wanting to win and lose an incoming fight in the same round. You can guess that this won't go too well.

You have 1 week for the registration. I suggest you start as soon as possible, and keep the list or participants from your team up to date, including their MP-level, so the other team can recruit some matches in time. Having too little players of a level is a slight advantage in offence, but a big disadvantage in defence.

The times will be set in accordance with the team captains. I plan to give you half an hour per pattern, so this event will take 3 sessions รก ~65 minutes.
Yes, it sounds all complicated, but it really isn't. We'll run a trial edition a few days before starting with the first real contest, so don't worry.

Guys, you annoy me. -.- If you two don't manage to arrange a time until tomorrow morning (MY morning, that's 9 hours from now) I'll pick the time that suits me best instead.

Would you folks please give me a rough idea if this is interesting and if it will take place? My first 2 events both had a bunch of entries in the first day, are you not planning to take part in this one, or just secretly preparing two teams behind my back? <.<

It strongly depends on timing... I may be online quite a lot, but more 'organized' playing, with rits set-up and concentration is much more limited - usually 2100-2300. With this disclaimer - sure why not :-)

I'm interested, but timezones are a problem to me :< Last time I participated in the SG event I weren't even able to do a single battle since I can't meet my designated opponents online. That said, if anyone is interested in forming a team for people who are online around 18.00-20.00 server time, please let me know.

Well, i'd have hoped for more participants, but that'll do. More rewards for the people who play.

Udgard and xrieg are appointed leaders.

Please pick your team members, Tipu will be left out unless you find one MP4 for the opposing team, and let me know a time that suits both of your teams.
It's fine with me if you recruit more people, but the rewards are fixed now. Quite a big bunch for so few people... :D

Ah, one thing I'm still not sure of: how many person should a team be consisted of? I was under the impression that it's a 3 vs 3, but I can't really find it stated anywhere xD Or is it freely decided by the team leaders?

PS: recruiting team members, those interested to join my team please PM me.

My current team:
Udgard (mp5)
Phantom Orchid (mp5)
Shadowseeker (mp5)
Paracelsus (mp4)
Crankz (mp3)
Quashen (mp3)

Udgard, any number is acceptable, i don't limit my competitions. As indicated in the first post, you really want to have the same number as your opponent of each MP, else your team will easily lose points in defence.

Shadow, it will be a full week by midnight.

Are we allowed to sign our self and our alt? As I have a fully capable MP3 alt for this.. if we can find an MP3 for the opponent.

Edit: I'd like to apply the following to xrieg's team if he'll accept me.
Lone Wolf MP5
lone wolf pup MP3

Edit 2: I can be on at any time as long as I get a day ahead warning.

If you think you can handle it, sure. Nobody is going to wait for you to change characters, though.

Also, just for clarification: The two leaders can pick their team mates. You don't have to accept people just because they want to play if you don't want them to play for you. It's completely up to you.

Actually i'd have liked to have finished teams by yesterday night, but as it seems that people needed a little push to start working, i'll give you another week. Not entirely as planned, but hey, things rarely turn out as planned.

[s]I wish that both Udgard and xrieg finish recruiting by friday 24:00, and post a list of all their team including their MP-levels by then.[/s]
Why, actually, scratch that, since things never run as planned, you can pick people from the spot for all i care. I won't need lists since i won't be doing any reward giving this time, i just need to give stuff to the captain :))
I don't expect all people of both teams to show up, they never do, so we'll have to handle the pattern ad hoc... which will be quite a pain, but not impossible.

I'd like to play the test round, which i actually wanted to play tonight, next saturday instead. If you two captains manage to find a good time, fine, else it'll be my pick. I'm not awake between 01:00 and 09:00, everything else should be fine (god bless free saturdays :D)

let's see how the week evolve - I may be perfectly available all saturday (most likely) or quite unreachable (probability 20%)

and of course team beauty is recruiting (welcome another teammate: Master of Magic, MP3 section :-))

LE: just learned that most probably will not be able to make it most probably :-(

      In this event of the Sparring Ground Championships, only the scariest of all creatures are allowed: Colorful ones!

      Only colored creatures may be used, tokens, influence and combo are not allowed.
      Of course, in the spirit of halloween, tricks are allowed, so use all the magic you can get your hands on

      Due to the power certain colored creatures have, i've got to limit rituals a little. You may only use one drachorn or one snowman.

      The variety of rituals may be limited, but the magics make up for that.

      We'll have the finals during the party time, therefor the sign up ends on 20th. Since we had issues last time, MP6 aren't allowed to participate this time.
      As usual, sign up with your MP-level.

      This tournament will be a little more difficult than the former competitions.

      Generally, everything except for spells is allowed this time. Any shop creatures and tokens are allowed, as are tokens, combo and all that.

      However, and here's the fun bit, tokens that are used can change the behavior of your opponent greatly.

      As usual, it'll be a 1 on 1 tournament, and you win against an opponent by winning the outgoing as well as the incoming fight against them.
      The defender uses a ritual with 0% influence and announces a token count to the attacker. The defender obviously mustn't use more than the announced count, but he has the strategic freedom to announce a higher count than what he actually uses (aka, put the attacker on a wrong trace).
      For every token in this announced count, the attacker can use either 5k combo OR 1 token OR 5% pray power, mixtures possible, in the attacking ritual.

      As examples: The defender announces 0 tokens. In this case, the attacker has to fight with 0%, 0 combo and 0 tokens as well.

      The defender announces 20 tokens. In this case, the attacker could use 20 tokens, or 100% influence, or 100k combo, or a mixed strategy of, for example, 6 tokens, 50k combo, and 20% influence.

      Just like the defender can play with announcing a higher count, the attacker doesn't have to use up all the points they could. If there were 5 tokens announced, the attacker could as well play with 4 tokens, no combo and no influence and let the last available point open.

      If one of the two fighters goes over the announced count, the fight counts as won by the other party. In this game, such a failure doesn't lead to disqualification because it really could happen easily. Don't sign up if you have problems with maths <.<

      'Useless' tokens count for the token count, of course!

      Rewards depend on the level of participation, as usual.

      Sign up for the event until Friday, 9th of September, please include the MP level you will play in, as usual.

      Before you get too used to fighting just against one person at a time, I'll go and announce a radically different competition for a change [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img]

      The objective of the Honor Competition is to reach a certain amount of honor, nothing more, nothing less.
      For doing that, everything is allowed, except for [color=#FF0000]leaving the Sparring Grounds[/color] during the game.

      There is no need to sign up for this competition. I'll announce the time a few days ahead on the forums, and again in the mood panel a few minutes before it starts, together with the amount of honor you'll need to achieve.

      I'll be present at all times during the games, logging out or leaving the park leads to disqualification. If something seems fishy to me, i'll do a locate on you to see if you've left the park. Maximum duration of a game will be 1 hour, if nobody gets the exact amount by then, the person closest to it will be declared winner.
      Clarification, due to complaints: This means, whoever is closest at the time the contest ends, NOT whoever was closest at some point during the competition. ONLY values stored in the last minute count for this plan B-rule!

      To win the competition, you'll need to win 3 games. We'll see how long it takes [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img]
      During the competition, a button to save your honor on the signpost will be available. Only honor counts saved there count for the competition. Spells to send somebody elsewhere don't disqualify their targets, but their casters.

      Rewards depend on participation as usual.

      The first game starts on Sunday, 22:00. (Maybe a little later if the finals of the aura competition take longer than expected)

      Good luck to all participants, and have fun [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img]

      First round, May 08, 22:45, goes to Ravenstrider in less than 20 minutes: Ravenstrider 1059 23:04:09. Congrats!

      For this event, you are allowed to use all creatures that have [color=#FF0000]NO AURAS (=Special Influences). No pray power and no tokens for this event.[/color]

      Sign up here until Sunday, 1st of May, with your name and MP-level. Rewards are not yet fixed and will be announced when i know the competition.

      Please only sign up if you seriously want to play, and have time to do so in the first week of May. If this doesn't work out again, i'll have to charge an entry fee next time.

      Sparring Ground Championships (SGC) proudly presents the Black and White Competition!

      In this event, nothing of any color is allowed. This means: [color=#FF0000]No tokens, combat influence/pray power, spells, combo, shop creatures, and other shop features whatsoever[/color].

      As added handicap, the defending player MUST tell the attacking player half of the creatures they use, in case of odd numbers rounded up. Which creatures they give away before combat is up to their own choice.

      Due to this obvious advantage of the attacker, each round of battle consists of 2 fights, one as attacker, one as defender. Should a round end as tie, another round needs to take place, until one person wins both the attacking and defending fight of a round.

      I'll decide for a tournament mode next Saturday, that's 26th, around midnight. You have until then to sign up if you wish to participate. Please include your MP-level, 6 will have to fight in the same class as 5.

      SGC wishes all participants good luck and clean fights. [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img]

      Edit, about rewards... Depends on the size of the tournament. If there's a big crowd, there'll be big prizes. If there's just 2 participants, there'll be no prizes. You can either play, or not. Should i happen to give out 20 wishpoints in the end, and you didn't sign up til saturday, you lost your chance. [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img]
