Event: Battle Chicken Tournament!!!

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Sweeney, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    Entry fee: 50k

    Place: TBD (Hopefully TnT will allow the use of their arena)
    Date: 12/19/09 (Time enough to train these things)
    Prize: First place: 66% of entry fees.
    Second place: 20% of entry fees.
    Third place: 14% of entry fees.

    [edit] Judges: One or Three (TBD) [/edit]

    [edit]Rules (Preliminary): No casting, pets fight to the death. In the event that a fight lasts longer than 5 mins., the chicken with the most noticeable health wins. If nearly even as decided by judges, a tie will be awarded. Spells cast on chickens are forbidden. [/edit]

    Future rules/fees/etc will follow. I nominate Petra to hold the purse.
    [edit] She has not expressed any willingness (it will probably be her bedtime). Middle-man TBD [/edit]

    Anyone with issues/problems/trolls, respond to this thread.

    The finalized rules must wait for [Middle-man] to accept admission fees, and for her to keep track. (In the event she is unable/unwilling, I nominate [2nd Middle-man]). If neither can afford the time/effort for a Siege event, I will do it myself (and exclude myself from judging).

    Please hold your admission fees until there is a definite middle-man.

    If TNT does not want you to use theirs you can use the auction house it has a decent arena with overlooking balcony

    From the sounds of it, to get a battle chicken on your first egg is exremely lucky. Better run to the quick-e-mart and get yourself a couple scratch offs today.

    I will be when I get a battle chicken. I'll go check and see now if I have any eggs.

    Edited the top post.. only major change is that fights now go a max of 5 mins.

    And also edited the tie criterion.. after 5 mins, the chicken with most health wins. If the difference is negligible, the judges decide (this may end up turning into a stalemate.. I'm unsure at this point).

    Im in but my lizard chickens are not producing battle chickens.. how long do these things take to train? are they tough enough to train on spawn or at jhelom animal pits?
    Do they taste better trained or stringy?

    Silly people dig up a shadow elly n then put a dog or a draggy on it; then put your pets on it.

    You do realize my poor Chicky lizards have been bleeding and sweating for this tourney?
    Let it go till after the holidays. 4 X GM lizard vs untrained battle chickie (*evil laugh*).

    Just wait until I train my BC. *giggles*

    January is soon enough.

    Sweeney, could you please post something about this event in the thread on U.Hall? So far it looks like only Siege and Europa have anything planned. (I suspect GL has something going on, but no one has said anything yet.)

    Good luck to all of you and I hope you can get this going. I'm hoping Sakkarah will step in and confirm for us, but I think there are more colors for these things than previously stated in the publish notes. I think there are 17 colors--all the hiryu colors, all the lesser hiryu colors, and black. There's a stickied post with more info at the top of the Tamer forum in case you want to know more or add your info.

    What was she selling it for? I have a few unhatched Battle chickens.

    2k.. pretty low if you ask me, but I guess the people that want these are already working on it.

    I've got 3 battle chickens so far, and have given away 2.

    I've got like 20+ normal chicken lizard eggs ready to hatch, if anybody's looking to start a chicken mill of their own. I'll toss em on my vendor for free if anybody wants.

    Good call! Luka and I are hashing out an event involving eggs. (her idea)

    More details soon.

    Hatching 40+ eggs makes for quite the event disruption.

    Somebody do the math to find out how many tiles are in Doom 2 and fill it with chickens.

    Candelabras are harder to remove with an AoE.
