I was going to post something similar to this. Its funny to say: oh, what i use to win is allowed, what Player X uses is evil and should not be used. If you want something fair then allow everything (maybe only not branch, since its purpose diverge from pk) or allow nothing and the stuff should be fought with leathers. Oh, i can use my thermal sword which gives 80 damage per hit, but you can't use your tit greaves of mirror or bear stone, sorry.
But if in the beggining people said 'this or that won't be allowed' then it get the rules changed and it is allowed, its not something really fair*. If the rules change, is better to create another tournment with the update rules.
*Only if its said upfront that the rules are subject to change and/or discussion, then all is fair.
This is a very good point made. ~LE~ shouldn't be pending, rather just off the list. Unless someone other then myself wishes to lead a few into this tournment. I myself think that the rules should have been set in stone from the very begining. Continuing to change rules and bending areas. Will only result in unhappy people. Either from the side that is like "w00t I can win now" or the side that thinks "Damn! WTF you said blah blah before, now ya saying opposite." I also agree that brod, bod should not be allowed. Due to they're main purpose is to not really pk related but breaking stuff. I think imo a max type of amor and weapon should be part of the rules as well. If want to go back in time, how about pr0 full leather w/ i forget what was the pkR choice weapon back then. But could also go back a "couple years (2yrs)" when it was iron plate and serps w/ mirrior cloak and moon med. If ya use a era from EL history, imo maybe should make all things part of that same era. Including magic types being used, summons, etc.
Anyways, Im not reinlisting, rather just pointing out some key topics in this. It doesnt matter what kind of contest or event someone has. There is always going to be some one that tries to bend the rules, or opinionate to change something about it. No offense, make new, make new rules and etc. And stick to them regardless of what others state. Theres enough information here in this thread now, imo. To give good reason(s) to what people may like or dislike.
Without changing or bending the rules the competition would be only PKG team (quimbly/toomass/pookies) entering and they would be the only team. Ghengas is trying to make something acceptable and fun for as many as possible. So far this has worked, discussions and changes of rules has caused more teams to apply than originally had.
Why do people keep referring to the BoD as a none PK weapon? it does extra 150 damage only i.e. helps to kill people.
It would be nice for as many people as possible to enter this tournament whilst Ghengas is in early stages of a possible future bi-monthly contest where if it gets running well in this tournament, the possibility of future 'old school style' or similar rules pk tournament could be run. If no one joins up for this tournament then there would be a situation similar with Cyprom's pk tournament a while ago and it will all just die out.
Anyone who enjoys PK but thinks it is dead recently I think should put their money where their mouth is and sign up for this attempt to revive some of the most fun aspect of EL.
