[TRI] ANNOUNCES NEW EVENT: DUEL WARS

In an effort to promote and grow the friendly competitive combat scene, [TRI] will be hosting an new event called Duel Wars. This event will use the duel scoring system to give out prizes based on the performance of all pilots that choose to participate. To participate, pilots must sign up via the VO role playing forums. The thread to sign up for this month's Duel Wars is here: https://www.vendetta-online.com/x/msgboard/14/34499.

Duel Wars Rules are as follows:
1) Participants must sign up on the announcement thread before the commencement of the event. After a period of allowing participants to sign up, we will begin the event. Once the event begins, pilots not already signed up will not be considered for prizes. Entry is free of cost.
2) The event will take place over a single week or two weeks. The duration of the event will be determined and stated at the beginning of the entry process.
3) Participants must average at least 2 duels a day over the course of the event. Any participant that does not meet this threshold will not be considered for prizes.
4) The reward for each prize will be determined and announced at the start of the event. Prizes will be given out for the following accomplishments:
- Highest score
- Most wins
- Largest score increase
- Most matches
- Largest score decrease
- Most losses
- The grand prize will be given to the participant with the most wins in duels against other participants. This means only participant-on-participant duels will be counted for this.
5) INTERPRETATION OF ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO [TRI]’S DISCRETION ALONE!

At the end of the day, this event is to encourage friendly pvp. It is the best part of the game and unfortunately it is a dying aspect. So please, I ask everyone to join us in helping make this new event a successful one. And don't forget to sign up!!!!!

Safe flights, good fights and long nights!

I'll have to look tonight. It's in the list and is approved. I'll do some testing to see if there's an issue.

I updated it, so let me know if it magically appears.

[SWA] presents: Murder WARS I

Murder wars is a bimonthly 2 phased nation(Itani, Serco, UIT, Grey) based battle that takes place in terribly inconvenient locations.

Date: March 24, 4446 @ 22:00 game time.
Location: Deneb H-12 (we did say terribly inconvenient didn't we?)

The basic rules are:

1. No team killing during phase 1
2. Don’t start until the organizer says “GO GO GO”
3. All ships are welcome (including capital ships.)
4. Observers are welcome in EC-88/89s
5. All weapons allowed.
6. Premining is frowned upon, but allowed.

Phase 1:

1. Nation vs nation. Last nation standing wins.
2. Members of surviving team split 20 mil credits.
3. Anyone committing team kills will NOT be awarded a prize.
4. Do not run from the fight. A little stealth is ok for strategy. Waiting for everyone else to get bored and leave is not ok. If the event organizer thinks you are being a bore, he or she reserves the right to DQ you.

Phase 2:

1. Surviving team will fight themselves for 10 mil credits. Last pilot standing wins it all.
2. phase 2 will start only after phase 1 prizes are handed out. Wait for the “go go go”.

1 mil credit bonus to any pilot who survives phase 1 in a moth. | 2 mil credit bonus to any pilot who wins phase 2 in a moth. | Free Lenb to every attending pilot including observers.

[SC] SKYCOMMAND IS LOOKING FOR NEW PILOTS FOR THE NEW SERCO OFFENSIVE!

Service guarantees citizenship, fellow pilot of the almighty Serco Dominion. Under threat by the wicked forces of the Itani and other obscure enemies within Greyspace, the Fatherland calls upon you to defend its people and ideals of honor, order and duty. It's up to you to answer it.

Should you accept this honorable call, enlist on SkyCommand today! Serving as the main body of the Serco National Military force, [SC] SkyCommand seeks to strengthen the Dominion in all areas of work, from the battlefield of Deneb to the assembly lines of the factories to create a new major offensive against its enemies.

If you think you have the determination, passion and skill to fight, you'll have a spot within the Fleet Combat Command division, and if you think you have the iron will and the focus to manufacture and trade, you may be greeted into our Fleet Logistics Command.

Even if you are a new pilot, SkyCommand provides all new recruits with an extensive Basic Training which will cover all necessary information so you can develop your own skills and pick an area to serve in. There is no excuse to refuse the call to serve. Enlist today!

The Tournament will be sponsored and coordinated by[TRI]. Anyone is invited to compete for up to two of five titles and prize money. The Titles offered are based on class, with five classes total. Each competitor may enter to compete for the title and prizes in no more than two of the classes. The entry fee is 100,000 credits per class entry.

In each class, competitors will be assigned to a double-elimination tournament grid position. They will compete against each other in matches of three rounds each. The winner of two out of three of the rounds wins the match and moves up to the next level, while the losing player is eliminated and moved down to the second-elimination grid to compete for second place. Before each round, the competitors must announce their chosen ship and configuration for the round. See a list of DISALLOWED/BANNED equipment in the RULES section at the bottom.

PRIZES:

The first place (undefeated) winner of each class is awarded the class title and 4,000,000 (4 Million) credits in prize money. The second place winner (with only one elimination) is awarded 2,000,000 credits in prize money for a total of 30,000,000 cr in prizes for the tournament. All titles are retained until the next event.

The classes and titles are as follows:

Remember: You can only join in two different classes! Amongst other things, this is to ensure that titles are given to at least three different competitors.

.

RULES:

No pilot shall ever equip more than one tube of seeking missiles of any kind. This is to prevent spamming and 'noob-toobing'. If more than one flight of seeker is live at a time, the judges may deem it spamming and the offending party will forfeit the round.

The following weapons/equipment are not permitted:
ANY nonstandard battery (Hive FC, UC, etc...)*
ANY nonstandard weaponry (Hive Posi, Hive Gat, etc...)*
ANY equipment requiring a badge (Certian Railguns, etc...)**
* Nonstandard equipment and ships may be used ONLY if both combatants agree to allow them before the round
** Megapositron is OK

A pilot may fly with an ordinance-only layout, however if they do and deplete their ammunition before killing the other player, they automatically forfeit the round; if BOTH players use ordinance-only, both parties will forfeit the round if one runs out, and the round will be re-played. To prevent abuse, if this occurs more than once in a match, both parties will be ELIMINATED.

All ships and layouts must be announced prior to each round they are used in. Players are permitted to change ships or layouts between rounds and may postpone a round (within reason) until a layout is decided upon or a compromise has been reached. In general, your opponent must agree to your loadout if you're flying anything out of spec. Any deceitfulness may result in the judges ruling you forfeit that round.

No draws will be awarded; if your explosion or leftover ordinance kills your challenger after you die, they win the round; the first person to be destroyed loses the round. If the win of a round is disputed, chat logs must be submitted to determine the winner, and will be validated by the judges of the match.

Two judges will be present at each match. Players wishing to help judge must register with [TRI] prior to the tournament. To register as a judge, visit this thread: https://www.vendetta-online.com/x/msgboard/14/35479

Anything else goes.

.

TIME TABLES:

The Tournament will begin as soon as two registered competitors of the same class are paired up and online. Players will be given one week from then to register for their classes before new entrants are turned away. The Tournament is not restricted to a certian time schedule, and will continue until all matches have been won or lost and the winners determined.

Tournament Officials (judges) may choose to remove competitors from the tournament if they do not show for an extended period of time.

.

Good Luck and may the best pilot win!
