- The Kilaran Field Clash -

A PK competition where 2 teams battle for control of Fort Garisn

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

This KF Clash will be a 30 minute, equipment restricted test of strategy and teamwork for Fighters, Mages and Archers.

 

Kilaran Field is a "No Drops" PK map, where you do not drop any items when you die, even if you do not have a Rostogol stone in your inventory.

 

The Clash will have only 2 teams, the goal of each team will be to control Fort Garisn for as long as possible.

There are significant equipment restrictions, they are detailed below.

3. Laying Mines and placing Wards during or before the event is NOT allowed.

Applies to all kinds of Mines, Caltrops and Wards.

The Clash Layout:

 

The members of each team will need to join one of the two guilds i am providing for this event.

It is possible you could be fighting as opposition to your friends and guildmates. If you are not prepared to do this, do not sign up... and remember, it's meant to all be in good fun :)

 

The goal of each team is to "control" Fort Garisn for as much time as possible within the 30 minute span of the event.

Here is a screenshot of Fort Garisn:

To be considered as "controlling" the fort, a team must have at least one member on the raised blue stone area at the back of the fort, and no members from the other team on the blue stone area.

 

To further clarify what i mean by 'the raised blue stone area', here is a top-down shot with the area highlighted in blue:

I will be in a guild set as ally to both the guilds in the competition and will remain in the fort and keep track of who has control and how long for. Once the 30 minutes is up, whichever team was 'in control' for the longest will be declared the winner. (I will probably get someone else to help me as well, so i don't have to monitor for equipment restriction violations whilst also keeping track of fort control.)

All competitors will be removed from the guilds at the end of the event.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Signing up, and conclusion:

 

If you would like to sign up, please post on this thread and state your in-game name. If you cannot post on the forums, contact myself (Korrode) in-game.

 

Which team each participant is on will be decided based on their levels, combat levels, and other factors, to create 2 balanced teams, to the best of my ability.

It's been suggested to me to move the event to the following weekend as some people may be away around new years, so i'm moving it to the 10th of Jan... does that still work for those already signed up?

Nice contest once again, Korr. :)

 

Good luck with it.

 

#Edit - Thinking about it, those arrows are too powerful for such an event, I'd suggest removing them. (So they can't be equiped.) just to be on the safe said.

Thanks :P

Sadly i think you're right Liq... at first i thought to just make a rule saying that equipping an arrow/bolt with a sword isn't allowed, but it'll be too hard for me to monitor the equipment restrictions if i allow those bolts.

 

With them disallowed, the only orange messages i should be seeing is from a dragon blade (mana burn) or a Scythe (150 dmg), and those are melee weps, with a low chance of effect that are easier to spot if i do see an orange message.

 

So addional rules:

1. Certain items are NOT allowed, they are as follows:
  • ...
  • Magic, Ice and Fire bolts.
    ...

4. Using a melee weapon in conjunction with an arrow or bolt is not allowed.

 

EDIT:

The problem is SenZ, it creates too much potential for disputes.

Orange spam stars rolling in, then someone will be claiming they weren't hit by a bolt and that it's that their opponent was using JSoC or CotM or whatever.

 

EDIT2: Also remember, unless people cast heat/cold shield, they wont have their dragon armors absorbing lots of the heat/cold damage from fire/ice arrows. Each scored ice arrow hit will be a guaranteed minimum 36 damage (and could be worse, depending on peoples armors), a few archers firing into a fight could make all the difference. Archers wont be disadvantaged too much imo.

 

Archers and Mages are primarily support personal by the design of EL, and they will be in this competition too.

we must have a misunderstanding or something SenZ...

 

I'm disallowing the ice, fire and magic bolts, not the arrows. :)

 

My example is showing what still can happen at the event, even after the rule addition.

What's the reasoning behind that?

A melee fighter can equip them with a sword and cooldown and mana burn/deplete others. Overpowered.

Due to the fact most all weapons with overpowered effects are restricted, as i said a couple of posts ago, if i allowed usage of these bolts even only in conjunction with a crossbow, it will make moderating the event for equipment restriction violations extremely hard (as there'll still be heaps of the orange cooldown/mana burn/etc. messages coming in). I also am fairly certain that they will be overpowered in general, and i am not a fan of how these kind of items place the outcome of fights in the hands of luck. Skill and character strength should win fights, not luck.

chance of hitting anyone with an enchanted bolt would be close to F.A anyway , cnsidering the accuracy penalties , so ruling them out of the event is like leaving them in, but saving you 35kgc in the process

I regret to say that but as to rangers it is very unlikely due to "no line of fire" limitation. As long as we do not have a kind of drop shot that allows to shoot above obstacle, rangers are disadvantaged and in some circumstances useless (please check if it is possible at all to target from within a fort a person that stands outside).

 

put all =hc= on 1 team then rest of EL vs us

 

And The Braggard of The Year Award goes to ..... :hiya:
