    Tonight there will be a Pure Mage tournament (7/14/13) on the Test Center shard at 9pm EST at the Ocllo Arena. The winner will win 100 million gold. There will be limitations on gear and abilities:
    1. It's a *pure mage* tournament. Only magery spells are allowed. Nox is not pure mage. No poisoning.
    2. No consumables. Potions, petals, apples, healstone/spell trigger, nothing like that is allowed at all. Packs will be snooped.
    3. No Casting Focus. Not even 1. Scribe will not be permitted either.
    4. Suits are also limited to non eaters and 9 HPR.
    5. No refined armor. I don't anticipate anyone showing up with it, but you never know.
    6. Respect the other contestants and their duels. People who begin fights outside of the brackets will be eliminated from the tournament and not welcomed back to future tournaments, ever.
    7. No Pets, no weapons, no wrestling, or the use of -ANYTHING- other than magery spells.
    8. No spell consumption. I don't know wtf it is, but none of it lol.

    If not mentioned here, there is no limit to what you have on the suit. You can have 30 sdi, 40 LMC, 25hpi, or however much MR you want. This tournament is strictly about spell-play. Twilight Lanterns will be given out. Bring your own suits. If you absolutely cannot, if there is no way in hell you could get your hands on a 9 HPR capped, 0CF, 0eater dueling suit, one may be provided to you. This is not guaranteed however. It's on Test Center, and transfers there are back up, so everyone SHOULD be able to get their hands on one. Either way, gear is no excuse for not showing up. You may want to show up on a blue, non-faction char, just in case we have any bad apples in the bunch. If you do not know how to get to Ocllo, ask people for a gate or find a crystal teleporter and say "Fel Ocllo mint." Then follow the road down past old haven to the south west. I will also be gating to moongates from there when it begins, as well as placing runes around the luna and fel gates. Ask in the general chat for a gate. Here's an opportunity for all of you to either indulge your ego's, or simply have some fun dueling. Either way, I suspect we will have a good time :)

    [edit]: Gold will be awarded on Atl, or the shard of the winner's request if it can be provided there. Also, if for whatever reason I don't have enough suits for everyone who needs one, people can share suits (guildies, friends, etc). I should only have about 6-8 or so, so some people NEED to bring their own. If you have a friend who has, make them transfer multiple chars so that you can use one of their suits. Don't be lazy, we all want this to go well. It's going to take a little bit of some collective effort. But once it's done, it's done. You will have a suit for future fights as well.

    You can either ask someone to gate you there, find a crystal teleporter and say "Fel Ocllo Mint," go to one of the moongates I'll be gating too (ask me to gate in the general chat), or recall off one of the runes around the luna or fel moongates labeled "Ocllo Arena." Please do not pick up the runes that way others can recall off them as well.

    The winner of the tournament was Cedric, or as his groupies refer to him, "Arnold." The tournament was ridiculously laggy however, and it seemed that the finalists happened to be all the people with really good pings towards the end. You know that's true when everyone starts dying to harm spams. Also there were a lot of people there trolling, causing lag and even stat'ing some of the contestants. Plans are being made as to how to combat these issues. We may isolate the tournament from the public crowd and invite only people who are going to be competing. Those who invite spectators will not be allowed to return to future events. General rules would still apply, and the winner would still win a grand prize. Future posts will be made as to when the next tournament is.

    Perhaps a different location next time? Duels on Lake Superior always used to take place on Wrong's Roof. If you do it on Test again, I can provide either Blackmage or Careless (if they participate) with the rune.

    I saw the announcement a bit late but I did livestream what I could. The location for observing/streaming was difficult ... I had to wander around trying to keep the contestants in view. http://www.twitch.tv/watchertoo/b/430659886

    Next time what I'd suggest is try to pull the bars, but otherwise, nice to see some old schoolish action :) was out with fam Sunday and didn't read UHall ;(

    edit: nm, you pulled out the bars later ;D

    lol 9:30 minutes before anything above fourth circle

    edit #3: old duels used to be so DBZ...stop after a few minutes, both mages using med active lol
