April 12, 2021 --- ***PVP Tournament Announcement***
« on: April 12, 2021, 06:36:33 AM »
April 12, 2021,

                 *** Tournament Announcement ***

Saturday, April 17th at 6PM UTC (2PM EST, 11AM PST) we will be hosting the
first Player versus Player tournament in several wipes!

This tournament will test our brand new 'arena' code, which -may- allow us
to automate arenas in the future. As this is entirely new code, we request
as much player participation as possible.

      We will be hosting & scoring 3 brackets: 1v1, 2v2, & 3v3.

Details:
 - Any level 25+ player can compete in any bracket. We will attempt to
   match teams as fairly as possible in the first round.
 - Bring your own gear.
 - Equipment will NOT be lost on death in the arena.
 - Items and containers will NOT frag in the arena.
 - Groups must be of equal numbers. You will pick your own group members,
   or we will try to help you find some friends if time permits.
 - Self-prep & group-prep spells are allowed in peaceful rooms upon entry
   to the arena.
 - No outside prep permitted. (i.e.: pre-buff, wands, scrolls, potions)
 - Use of "orbs" is restricted in tournament play, but will be allowed in
   free-for-all skirmishes following the main events.
 - Corpses and spirits will exist in the arena for those who need them.
 - Fights can be spectated by players. Check the signage in an inn of any
   major city on tournament day.

If you plan to participate and know your team in advance, we ask you to let
us know your planned bracket(s) and group members ahead of time.
(Preferably by Friday.) Please email gods@arcticmud.org or message a
non-retired immortal in-game to reserve your spot. Pre-registered players &
teams must check in with the immortal staff within 30 minutes of tournament
kick-off on Saturday.

Even if you do not enjoy participating in PvP, we still encourage you to
enter the contest to check out the hard work we've done on the automated
arena design and fight 'spectate' system. Everyone who competes in the
tournament will receive something in return. And, of course, the fiercest
gladiators will undoubtedly walk away with the largest prizes.

Lastly, following the structured tournament play, we will allow free-for-all
skirmishes to test multiple arena fights in parallel. Arena fights will be
entirely randomized and use of prep will be unrestricted. No refunds.

May you all die!

Thank you arena competitors, spectators and staff! Today was a lot of fun and I hope we can do it again in the near future. I'd like to congratulate the winners of todays competitions:

Hush: Winner of the 1v1 bracket
Caine and Pete: Winners of the 2v2 bracket
Krillin, Booker, and Eliza: Winners of the 3v3 bracket

We saw some real player skill level, unexpected triumps and comeback kings! Looking forward to the next tournament to see what strategies you guys come up with. As always, your suggestions and thoughts are greatly appreciated. Feel free to message me on discord or ingame if you have something to say!
