The Vytal Tournament Event - Final Sign Up [Event] [Closed]
« on: September 11, 2016, 06:11:46 PM »
NOTE: Seeing as we've moved boards and everyone needs to have characters re-approved, you are allowed to submit entries for characters not yet approved or submitted, as long as they will be ready by the 18th.

SIGN UPS WILL END SEPTEMBER 25TH


Blip-bloop! "Welcome one and all once more to the Vytal Festival, this year located in urban Vale!" The message on the scroll reads. "This is the fortieth biannual Vytal Tourney and with it, each of the Kingdom's councils have agreed to revamp the rules so newcomers and veterans alike, pay attention. Instead of a single bracket included all years and all match-ups, we've spread out the action between a maximum of twelve brackets, though we suspect some may gain much more attention by the cameras than others. The brackets are as follows: One for each year in 4v4, one for each year in 2v2, and one for each year of 1v1. You may participate in all three of these bracket types, for example you and your team can participate in 4v4, you and your teammate can participate in 2v2 as well as the other members of your team, and you may participate in 1v1 as can the rest of your team. After the champion of each bracket is decided, a bonus round where all four years converge will commence. This means that there will be 1st years V 2nd years and 3rd years V 4th years, with the winners moving up to the bonus finals. This means you have not one, not two, not three, but six chances at championship if you participate in all of the bracket types as well as the bonus rounds. Along with the revamp of the rules, this year we are proud to announce another new bracket type, 'The Huntsman's Bracket', exclusive to graduated hunters and huntresses that decide to stick around in the city long enough to participate in matches. We will also be increasing the amount of Field Effects that can be chosen at the start of matches, including new fields like mist, or fields rich in specific kinds of Dust.

We hope to see you all there this year and remember to keep your weapons cleaned, Dust stocked, and aura charged!
" Signing off...

Alright folks, this is it. This is what the god awful first initiation and less awful but still bad Vytal Tourney Practice event were training us for. A well and true tournament arc. There are some rules I need to clarify on from the above statement so let's get right one that.

Most important rule: You may have the same character in each of the bracket types but you cannot have more than one character in the same bracket type. That is, I could not have both Malina and Zabar in the 1v1 bracket. This is still in effect even if they are different years. The only time this rule is overridden is in 4v4 if you have two characters on the same team.

4v4: Matches are estimated to have a very low turn out but that doesn't mean we won't allow them. Even if only a single team is submitted we have a way to make it worth it, which we be explained below. That said, only OFFICIAL TEAMS may participate in this bracket type. This means the team you were assigned to by Atlas/Beacon/Haven/Shade and you MUST have all four members agree to participate in the round. How to enter will be addressed below.

2v2: This is expected to have a good turn out. Good as in "Not so many it gets hard to manage." As stated before, if you participate in either of the two bracket types, you can still participate in this bracket with the same character that is entered in either of them. If you have two characters on a team they only one can be in this round.

1v1: This is going to be super busy. It is possible that not everyone gets in, dependent on how many entrees are received. Once again, only one character allowed, regardless of year.

As stated before, even if one team/double/person enters a bracket, we have a way to make it interesting, and that way is Staff conducted NPC teams. Now don't think that if you get an NPC team then you'll pretty much have an auto win, they are still tough opponents like any other player character and have weaknesses that must be exploited. These NPC teams will MOSTLY come from Atlas/Haven/Shade since 99% of entrees will likely be Beacon based.

Staff members will play the parts of referees in this tourney,though we will still participate. We are there to both make sure matches run smoothly as well as to work a check, if someone decides to challenge a post.

The matches themselves will run off a similar system to that of the practice tourney, you both start off with 100% aura, attacks must be given a % damage value, it is up to the other person to decide whether or not they would hit and are responsible for taking the damage (unless an autohit penalty is required.). If you feel that your opponent has made an unfair attack value or dodged unfairly, you must contact a referee and we will determine whether or not it was unfair. If it was, the post must be edited to what we deem to be fair.

In matches, it is required that you post within 5 days, if you don't and do not send a notice to BOTH a referee and your opponent beforehand, you will be given an autohit penalty. That is whatever attack was in someone's post before you didn't post will automatically hit. If there was no attack in the post, one may be edited in. If you do not post in 3 days without notice following the auto hit, your character is disqualified. If you think tou won't be able to post for 8 days at any time during the tourney, do not sign up.

These rules count for everyone, normal members, minions, moderators, and admins. Do not be afraid to talk to one of the staff is anyone is breaking any rules.

Below I will show the proper way to sign up characters per brackets.

By the way, I ended up switching to Strelka for 1v1. She's funner to use in a fight, and Marigold would be too busy anyways. Plus, that way the audience doesn't have to watch gore from her clones flying all over the place.

1v1:Jack Pettibone

Now, here's my trouble. See, I hadn't actually read this thread before concocting a pretty heavy plot point involving two of my characters fighting for the entire world to see. Seeing as I don't lack basic reading comprehension skills, it's pretty obvious having two characters in 1v1 wouldn't work and is a no go, for many practical reasons. The thing is, the plot point was going to be damn awesome and set up a lot of what I was going to do with characters who are created to be foils of one another.

So I have this idea to avoid causing trouble and not lose out on something extremely cool. Why not just have Marlon and Jack duke it out first, and not have the win count towards any bracket to keep it fair and on the level? Heck, since it's literally me fighting myself you don't technically need a ref, either, so less work for y'all. I'll even message the staff with who will win ahead of time if they need to know. I don't care, I'll bend over backwards to have this happen, I'd just hate to have this awesome moment get shunted to something like non-canon or anything less than the Vytal Tournament.

I mean, if the answer is no, it's no, but I had to at least give it a shot. And if it is no, yes, I still want Jack in 1v1. If it's yes, here's Marlon's submission as well, and you have my umpteen thanks.

1v1: Marlon Murk
Seek Justice, Love Mercy, and walk humbly with your God.

Character List:
Spoiler: ShowHide

Cheri Chanson-Team AFMC (Afirmacion) “The people who were trying to make this world worse are not taking the day off. Why should I?” -Bob Marley

Jack Pettibone-Leader of Team JCRA (Jackrabbit) "In my body, where the shame gland should be, there is a second awesome gland. True story."-Barney Stinson

Cherry Chainsaw "Wake up, I'm a bullet loosed Into the heart of a wretched age, I breathe just to beat and bruise, an evolution of the burnin' rage!"-Miracle of Sound, Hell to Pay

Professor Siobhan Clannad-Personal Finance and Home Economics Professor at Beacon Academy "We can do no great things, only small things with great love."-Unknown, often attributed to Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Professor Feltch Hatterly Criminal and International Law Professor at Beacon Academy "Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere."-G.K. Chesterton

Professor Scarlet Vandal Weapons Engineering and Design Professor at Beacon Academy "Perfection has one grave defect: It is apt to be dull."-W. Somerset Maugham

You... COULD do that, Uncouth. Well, what you could do is have the thread set up before the rest of the matches and we can say that all contestants have already finished one round of the tourney. The issue I see here, however, is that it's not really a thread. Since it's just you, it's more of a post and I don't know ho well tat would work with JUST you in the "thread".
