<*>THE NAUGHTY CHAOS CUP - EVERLASTING 1v1 PVP TOURNAMENT <*>

Recommended Posts

Asking the real questions here⬆️. Dwarf only pvp is not going to win any tournaments. And Nova isn't listed at all.

Seems Triform Khelds don't have a category to compete. I'll be happy to watch the event though if i can be online for it.

... so why is the Warshade being listed as melee? Dwarf form, maybe, but that's not *spectacular,* and human form has two auras and two melee attacks (Grav well and essence drain.)

 

Is Nova form being restricted from the melee fight, then, as well?

Nova Form isn't banned. The only banned powers/archetypes/etc are the things listed under "Banned Stuff".

 

Also - while I'm happy to clarify the rules, I will 100% not be debating them. This is a community event thread. Debates aren't welcome here.  We want to maintain a positive vibe in this thread, and message board debates always turn toxic. Please respect this.

 

If you've got any suggestions about what we could do differently to make the event more balanced, feel free to PM me. (Genuinely. I find that helpful. A couple of players have already done so.)

All Kheldian builds (Dwarf/Nova/Duoform/Triform) are welcome in the melee bracket.

 

You can bring your triform and compete just fine. :classic_biggrin:

I'm not debating, I'm *asking questions,* because it looked strange to have Warshades there for the reasons I mentioned, and Khelds have the ability to stay at range in Nova (it's all they *can* do unless they want to get killed quickly) which may cause issues in a melee bracket. Thus asking what I did.

 

Edit:

Talked with AA and we're good.

I know I'm disagreeing with you in another thread, but that's no reason to be aggressive towards me asking questions for clarification and perfectly polite to the person *agreeing with me about those being legitimate questions in the next post.*

Do you plan on signing up or is this just a theoretical exercise?

 

BTW - Definitely joining in on this (probs on a corr or blaster).  Thanks for hosting this @America's Angel!

I was, as indicated in my first post. I used to enjoy a good fight, and have actually been working on leveling a brute I used to have a lot of fun with on live.

Reconsidering given the responses I'm getting.

I don't know how "the responses you're getting" are a relevant matter here.

 

I hope you decide to join the event and reconsider posting any sort of toxic content going forward. I think this will be a lot of fun and I'm really happy that people outside of Indomitable are choosing to partake in this game's very unique PVP system.

Thanks for the clarification.

If you could do us all a favor and quote the 'Toxic Content' that Greycat allegedly said that'd sure go a long way to helping understand what is and isn't toxic? Because i can't for the life of me find anything.

Please save the player-vs-player matches for the contest, not during the forum 😉

 

Greycat, hope you can make it out to the tourney!

 

 If there's any more questions related to the tournament, please continue to feel free in asking them here or privately if need be. The more clarification we can provide, hopefully the more participants we can expect!

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing yourself and the other Indom people coming over for it. I know one of you won the last 1v1 tournament Everlasting hosted. (I think it was Sloth?) So our server has some pride to recapture. :classic_smile:

No probs. Hopefully see you there.

Sure!

 

Crey pistol animation cancelling = not allowed

Emote animation cancelling = not allowed

Redraw animation cancelling = not allowed

Jump cancelling = allowed (as there is no way to police it, and it's hard to do on purpose/easy to do by accident)

 

Also, for the fine print lawyers out there; if someone redraw cancels a few times by accident, they won't forfeit. (Judge's discretion on what constitutes "a few" and "accident".)

When I have a spare 18 hours to farm out enhancements for a PvP build, I will consider it. 😄 But... I'm not sure about farming a billion INF for a build for the slight possible chance of winning a billion back. Guess it's great for people who already have PvP builds... On Everlasting.

The rules have been carefully selected to create the most balanced 1v1 tournament we can. If you have any suggestions for what we could do to improve balance, feel free to PM me.

Actually, the event is great for anyone, from any server, who is interested in balanced and fun 1v1 PVP. :classic_biggrin:

 

Newbies with cheap builds and hardcore vets with uber builds are equally welcome. The event is going to have a good mix.

 

If you don't want to come? No worries! But maybe keep that sort of thing to yourself. It's not nice to rain on other peoples's parades, ya know?

I have done PvP on Everlasting. It was fun in the same way running an AE mission with nothing but sappers as enemies is fun. If you have 20 PvE builds and 1 PvP build, do not be surprised when the PvP build wins in seconds.

I just want to note that a good PVP build can be had anywhere for 250 to 500m. Ranged characters being on the lower side of that range. 

 

Also, you can join the PVP discord for build help and even template builds. There is even a bot to serve them to you if you don't feel like being social.

 

Finally, remember that nothing is permanent. If you need to reshuffle IOs, homecoming has basically made respecs extremely inexpensive and readily available and unslotter can be had for less than 100k a piece if you arent rushed.

 

I strongly encourage anyone even remotely curious to consider building a PVP toon for this. It's the most underrated aspect of this game, IMO.

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

Will try to show up if not doing anything irl at the time. Will likely get annihilated.

That's the spirit! :classic_biggrin:

 

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.

So, @America's Angel, @CU_Krow . . . if you're serious about having some "dirty deals done" in the vein of Rikti Monkey Fight Club for observers, I shall have to request some more intricate details on how this tournament will run in terms of brackets, timelines/scheduling, and the like.   Also, how to ensure that matches are documented accurately and fairly.
