Posted 10 September 2011 - 02:23 PM

During this year's USRC, what we heard from a lot of participants that they'd like to have more PVP tournaments. Something for fun, maybe more informal and have it more often than once a year. We announced a few months ago that we were planning a pre-RWC scrimmage (informal tourney) that would have cash prizes, and so here it is!

The what: Our 1st RWC Scrimmage Cash Tournament

The why: Our RWC team has been practicing since USRC ended, but to keep their skills sharp before they head to Korea they need some sparring partners.

The who: This tournament is open to everyone,on any server. You do not need to have a guild or the same team or even characters set up, what you do need is a team of 6 other people who want to fight beside you.

The when: Sign up by October 4th. You can still make roster adjustments but as these will be used to get the prizes out to your teammates, please make sure you have the names spelled exactly. The tournament will take place on Saturday morning, October 8th.

The how: Rules will be the same as on USRC. Check this link for rules. It's being set up as having the RWC team take on all comers, the plan is that all participants will receive prizes with bigger rewards for successful teams.


The where: Sakray. Our test server is up and running with pre-renewal settings. The maps that will be used will be the same as the ones used on USRC.

How to get started

Grab the Sakray Client here.
You don't need to import your characters from the main servers, you create a novice character and will be able to change jobs/levels and get the equipment you need from special NPCs setup in Izlude.

How to register: Using the ticket system to register for RWC was a little bit less than successful and it was difficult for team leaders to quickly communicate with us. I'm going to try something different.

Team leaders please send me a message on the forums with your info in the following format:

Subject: RWC TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION- "Team Name"
Message:
I would like to register a team.
Team leader character name and class : Yourname (yourclass)
Team leader account name: (this will not be shared on the forums)

Team member 1 (and class):
Team member 2 (and class):
and so on.

Server you play on:


Once I have received your registration information, I'll add your team name to the roster below. If you have any changes to you team, you can reply to your registration PM and I'll update it on this page.Please make sure that the list of names is current as of Saturday so the right players get the right goods~!

Details on the tournament:

Single Elimination, best of 3 tournament up to Semi Finals. Semifinals and finals are best of 5.
When a team is eliminated (loses) they battle our RWC team, the RWC team is NOT participating in the main tournament.

We will run the matches in parallel, the RWC team should then get the practice to battle all teams.
First 16 teams to sign up are in.

All teams after they battle the RWC team will earn a Free in-game item for participating.

Prizes:

1st place team: $75 per member Credit Card Gift Card
2nd place team: $50 per member Credit Card Gift Card
3rd place team: $25 per member Credit Card Gift Card
Beating the RWC Team: 5x RWC Groove Pack
Participation Prize: 1x RWC Groove Pack


Livestream will be here: http://www.twitch.tv/warpportal

What kind of cash prizes? Just curious. because if the prizes aren't worth it then I dunno if many people will participate. We should totally give out the USRC prizes. Free upgrade to +10 :3

my question are how much is the prize

and wouldn't it be a good idea to delay the stream a bit?

Elsewise I'd sit there with it open so I could see what direction the other team were approaching fro and/or if they're doing any cloaking champion shenanigans.

Do close to USRC prizes. But on a more minimal level. Try like 1-3month free vip for the teams. With some extra WP. Or Massive amounts of kvm badges that would be good. give everyone a full set worth in badges for kvm gear

Make the prize something worth my time to get another team setup for this. I'm hoping for some +14 refines, decarding service or a MVP card album. Money/WPE I have so if that's the prize I won't even bother with it.

If it's a cash prize it'll most likely be in the form of wpe. I'd much rather get something unique/rare instead. As for buying MVP cards off the players that overvalue their shiz, I'll pass.

What's the point?

The RWC team has already proven that they can beat everyone from the servers, so why fight them again with the same results?

Seems like free cash/whatever the prizes will be to the RWC team.

Mind you if they were ineligible for the prizes then I could see this happening, that is if all they want is some practice.


Good luck for a fair fight to the teams that participate. Oh and enjoy your macros while you still can. <3

It's basically sparring matches for our rwc contestants. Pretty sure the only way they can get people to participate in it is to give every team that shows up some sort of special hat like they did for the usrc and the large hibiscus hats.

This mentality :)
When you lose you should assess the problems, fix the mistakes, do practices, and play as a team.

You also should feel challenged and honored because it's a rare opportunity to play with the best team in iRO. Whether losing or winning, your team still gain precious experience. You can also use this opportunity to prepare your USRC 2012 team.

To compete and to be the best should be in your mind, not to get +14 pixel or a digital card. And surely attractive prize is needed to get participants.

Lastly you should learn to accept your losses. Every matches was monitored by GMs and watched by hundred of viewers. You lose because the other team is better than you.

The major motivation for participating here should be having fun in a PvP environment. It's a challenge, no one forces you to go. I thought someone who (acts as if he) loves the current Biolabs 3 event not for its reward but for the playing experience would know. If PvP is no fun for you at all, just stick to your favourite programmed monster and enjoy your time there.

And don't ever call other people "cry baby" again unless you include yourself; as you can see you're not that tough either.

I have no problem with it. I can't say the same about my totally unmotivated team who are already too lazy to get online for woe. My 2011 usrc team barely made the deadline for registration because I was short a member or two until I told them theyd be guaranteed a hat. Getting people to join me in a bio3 party for hours on end is easier than getting people to commit to showing up on the day of the event.

At this point in time there must be only 3 people that are willing to do it for the challenge because Ive only seen two other people on sakray since it opened again for rwc practice

I'd love to do it for the challenge but what am I going to do with a 1 man team. Maybe it would be better of there was some sort of forum for a mass of individuals that want to participate but lack a team.

Ps. If you couldn't tell, I was totally trolling his thread to get gravity to do something other than a cash prize since it wasn't enough for people to show interest in the actual usrc.

It's good enough for people to want to screw around with in pvp but not enough to commit to anything. I'd have better luck getting a team of randoms before I could get a proper team from the people I know.
