    I wish to invite all interested players to an open tournament that I will host on the Catskills shard on Monday,March 17th at 8 pm Central time. No restrictions on gear or template. This will be a 1v1,single elimination tournament.

    Prize for first place will be two reforge tools (total of 10 charges) purchased from the Origin Store plus 50% of the entrance fees. Second place will earn 25% of the entrance fees. Entrance fee of 100k per player will be required by at least two days before the tournament.This is so I can set up the brackets and have everything ready to go.

    If you wish to enter this tournament,either leave a post here,pm me here,or send me an ICQ message to 664693805.

    Be sure to post a reminder as the date draws nigh...
    I don't PvP so I won't be entering but a night at a tournament is always a welcome respite from the daily chores..

    Flutter you turning 18 again this year?

    It will be held in the arenas. It will be held in the arena in Haven unless a player enters a red character. In that case,it will be held in the arena next to the T2A area.

    Nah and I am also considering on just dropping the fee altogether. I was only using that fee to make sure that the ones that wanted to compete actually showed up.

    That is awesome of you Flutter.Thank you. I'll match your five million so that the total purse is 10 million that will distributed to the top four finishers.

    5 mil,and the two reforge tools,for 1st place.
    3 mil for 2nd place.
    1 mil each for the two semifinalists.

    Now what I need to do is to get a definitive list of all that have posted in three separate threads telling me they want to enter. So far I have five people that will compete. I'd like to see a lot more.

    That would be appreciated.What I would also ask for everyone to ask friends that play to see if they would want to enter the tournament. So far I have only five,maybe six,that have said that they will enter.

    Very good. We now have a 'full bracket' of eight players. This does make things easier with setting up the tournament pairings.

    Someone would get a bye with a bracket of nine players.

    This is the last call for those that would like to enter the tournament. I'll be setting the bracket pairings by this time tomorrow and will not be accepting new entries. Thanks.

    Another quick question.. will there be any restrictions whatsoever?? Like say a ban on tamers? Cuz to me pvp is not fighting somebodies greater dragon in a very small enclosed area...

    No restrictions in this one. If I see that a tamer is just destroying all his opponents and wins the tournament with ease,then the next one I host will limit the tamer to four slots. From what I know of who has signed up,there's not a tamer that has entered.

    Kamikazi,if you do want to enter the tournament,I need to know today before 2 pm central time. That's when I am finalizing the pairings I have made.

    Chris is a tamer, but I'm not opposed to fighting his Bane and him at the same time. Although it will eat most of this competition, probably myself included :p
