  1. Yeah, we'll start doing that from the next tournament onwards. I'm looking at hosting the matchups all on a website (probably Challonge.com) so that people can check ongoing scores/who they are fighting next as the event progresses, without having to rely on me copying and pasting stuff into the request channel. Challonge also has some cool options to do "Swiss Draw" tournaments, that pairs people with others with a similar point score. (Helps to avoid win-streaks, and pairs up people playing for draws with each other.)
  2. If anyone wants to dual-box without melting their PC. Use this macro in game: /macro FPS "maxfps 60$$maxInactiveFps 1" Click it once when you log into the character. It lets you dual/triple box with minimal GPU strain.
  3. Yeah it's the beta server where they do all the open testing. You can autolevel characters to 50, give them IOs/incarnates/etc for free. It's good for testing out character combos to see what works. See here:
  4. Ooh. This sounds exciting. Just need to find two team-mates...
  5. If your focus is zones, Psy/NRG Scrapper or Stalker would be worlds better than the brute IMO. I tested a psy/nrg brute on the training room server, it's not great.
  6. Dark Melee can be good on scrappers in 1v1s and Fightclub. The -tohit pairs well with elusivity, it has a heal, and the T1 and T2 attacks are short enough to get 3 off in the +50% ATO crit window of 3.25 seconds. A DM/EA Scrapper just won a 1v1 tournament over on Everlasting. Dark Melee isn't so hot for 8v8s and general zone play, though. (AKA the majority of PVP in this game.)
  7. Thank you to everyone who came to the first NAUGHTY CHAOS CUP. We had around 50 people in total. Between them, they had over 125 PVP matches. I think that's a new best for Everlasting. This was our first time running something like this, so there were a few growing pains. But I had a great time, and it seems like most everyone else did too. (Apart from a few ragequitters. but you get those at every PVP event!) Congratulations again to Alou and Cold Healz for winning the Ranged Bracket! (A Beam/Plant Blaster versus a Therm/Ice Defender! Ouch!) Congratulations again to Madvillain for winning the melee bracket. (His DM/EA Scrapper was a beast!) Thanks @CU_Krow for co-running this with me. And thank you to everyone who came to fight and watch. I hope you all had fun!

  10. Sorry to hear that. Plenty of people moved their characters over this morning without problem. Guess you just got unlucky. :( Suggest you open a support ticket or contact a GM on the official Homecoming Discord. They should be able to help ya.
  11. New to the arena? Don't worry. This post will show you how to start matches. (Players have to set up their own matches once they have been told who their opponent is.) First, find a Battle Terminal and click on it. Or just type /arenalist This will bring up the arena list. Once here, click on "Create Event" This will create an event. And will take you to this window: Now, click on "Random Map", and make sure you've selected the right map for the round you are in. (We'll be announcing which map to use in the Request channel.) If you're in the RANGED bracket, click on "More Options": Then set it to "Small Inspirations Only": If you're in the MELEE bracket, Click on "More Options": And change it so it says "No Inspirations Allowed": Congrats! You're all set up! Now there's only one thing left to do - invite your opponent! If you see them you can right click on them and select "Invite to Arena Event" Or you can type /ai and then their name to invite them to the match. Like this: And that's everything! Go fight! However, if you're just coming to watch... All you need to do is click on an arena terminal (or type /arenalist) and then change it from "Show Best Fit" to "Show Ongoing": You'll then be given a choice of matches to watch! And that's everything. See y'all at 6pm EST/3pm PDT/11pm GMT

  14. Tonight's the night! 6pm at the Sapphire Section of the Peregrine Island Arena on the Everlasting server. Here's what the section looks like: We'll be in the upstairs bit: Melee entrants, please stand next to this guy: Ranged Entrants please stand next to this guy: If you're new to the arena, my next post will show you how to set up a match.

  17. Yeah 1v1 CoH PVP is kinda rock-paper-scissors. (Most of the time if you lost it's due to a bad matchup.) This is why we went with a points system over a knockout tournament; the idea being that if people have enough fights, eventually their rock will have fought an equal amount of scissors, papers, and rocks, and player ability starts to become the overall deciding factor in the winner. (As much as it can be.) Plus people get to play more, which is fun!
  18. We're not trying to stir up interest. We are stirring up interest. Loads of people have said they're interested. From hardcore PVPers, to casuals, to people who didn't even know this game has PVP. (We've got people from all servers looking at jumping over to join in the fun!) Feel free to come along and see for yourself.
  19. Rough schedule in EST: 6:00 - People start showing up at the Sapphire Section of Peregrine Island Arena. 6:05 - Ranged entrants are asked to gather by a character of mine called RANGED SCOREBOT, Melee Entrants are asked to gather by a character of mine called MELEE SCOREBOT. 6:10 - Entrants are locked. 6:14 - Matchups are posted in the Request channel. 6:15 - Round 1 Starts 6:25 - 3-5 min break to collect scores/wait for everyone to come back from their matches / Round 2 matchups are posted in the request channel 6:30 - Round 2 Starts 6:40 - 3-5 min break 6:45 - Round 3 Starts 6:55 - 3-5 min break 7:00 - Round 4 Starts 7:10 - 3-5 min break 7:15 - Round 5 Starts 7:25 - 3-5 min break 7:30 - Winners announced! 7:30+ - People stay around to continue to duel for fun/revenge. We're aiming to get everything wrapped in under 90 mins to keep it casual-friendly. The tournament is going to be a "round robin". Everyone will fight five matches. We will announce who is fighting who in the Request channel before each round starts. Matchmaking will be at random. People will not fight the same person twice. After each round, the winner has to send a tell to one of the "scorebots". (I'll be triple-boxing with two alts called "MELEE SCOREBOT" and "RANGED SCOREBOT" whose entire job is to just collect /tells from winners each round.) If the winner doesn't send a /tell to the scorebot, their match will be scored as a draw. Wins are 3 points, draws are 1 point, losses are 0 points, and bye round are 3 points. (In the case of odd number of players. Bye rounds are awarded at random.) The overall winner is the player who, after five rounds, has the highest score. If we have multiple winners, there will be a tiebreaker knockout to determine the overall one. Krow and I have a live google spreadsheet that'll have all the players/brackets/scores in that we'll be updating as the tournament goes on. Happy to give you read-only access to that on the day. Multiple builds on one character are allowed. Anyone who wants to switch builds between matches, we suggest you use a macro for it rather than running to the trainer, as we'd like to keep everyone in the arena to make setting up matches easier for newbies. Here's a guide on how to switch builds using macros: https://forums.homecomingservers.com/topic/6450-build-swap-macro-tutorial/
  20. Yup! I know a few peeps who are putting together cheap builds to take part. Curiosity can be cheap! The PVP Discord is a great resource. Anyone interested can find it here: https://discord.com/invite/ACfXPxK That's the spirit! We're gonna have a good mix of long-timer, new, and casual PVPers. Everyone should have enough fights to end up fighting someone around their level of experience.
  21. The start time has been corrected to show the right starting time for PDT/GMT.
