[NEWS] Pitfights, Leathal To The Audience...

Discussion in 'UO Legends' started by a Rabid Chipmunk, Jan 17, 2011.

    Tonight the people of Legends were treated to a display worthy of The Great Colosseum. From all around the realm, teams of up to four companions entered the Legends Pitfight Event.

    The rules as explained to us by Malakei the Pitboss were fairly straight forward; Enter the Arena when it is your turn, Kill whatever Horace the Beastmaster decides to throw at your team, if you survive you win, if not... Horace's pets are in need of heartier foods anyway.

    Tonight we saw a grand total of thirteen teams compete. Not a single team failed to defeat the monsters summoned before them. No death robes were handed out tonight, much to the sorrw of Horace and his horde of beasts.

    The Jhelom arena may be great for fighting, but the one thing it is not great for is picture taking. Heres a breakdown of tonights fights, with pictures if I was able to take one that was halfway decent.

    *AWARD* This team also wins the award for the most kills in a single fight. The Darkfate Elemental had a wicked aoe which killed almost eveyone on the Jhelom Pits catwalk.

    You can see all the bodies, bones, and deathrobes.

    Finally after all the initial rounds of monster mayham were completed, Malakei announced who would be facing tonights "Champion"

    The first team selected had retired, due to the lateness of the hour, but the second draw was Team #9. Team ELITE. They were once again let back inside the arena to face the champion.

    However the champion proved a little to much for its handlers and a backup champion was brought in.

    This Crimson Dragon ran wild thru the arena and had to be sedated

    This Tormented Minotaur was our backup Champion, and it was quite a handful
    <img src="http://uo.stratics.com/newspics/legends/pitfight1b.jpg" width="681" height="588">​

    The Tormented Minotaur was brought down, not once, but twice. Each time the "Hero" of the fight was the dragon "a greater wed"

    The Champions were each awarded, a commemorative breastplate, and all the other teams were awarded commemorative tunics.

    I have the say the EM's outdid themselves with this event. I haven't been more excited to attend any event, and it was as much fun as anticipated. Sure it took hours, but the chance to fight a beefed up boss creature on steroids with my team mates was so much fun and well worth the wait for our turn.

    This event was as much fun to watch as it was to participate in. If there were some kind of local jail cell where griefers could be placed until the end of the event that would be nice. Someplace where they can't cast spells or get out until it's over. That might encourage people to behave themselves, so the rest of us could enjoy the event.

    I had a great time and I hope we can do this one again, like monthly. It's a lot more fun than the chicken lizard fights. I think everyone else thought it was a great idea, look at the turn out. :)

    I agree with damia the event was way better then any on legends in a long time if we arent gonna have fel based events at least have some like this the battle chicken event is played out.. there were a lot of griefers but the ems handled it well and did a great job.. i also agree this should be a monthly event and i think the choice of monsters were also great bc they kept killing spectators making it more exciting during the wait it was a great time maybe a few kinks but its uo... but i think the best part of the night hadda be the EM verbally owning Pug and LD was great!!!.. Hope to see this event again and we will be there to recliam our thrown! Thanks again Team Elite..and good posts fluff
