Ladies & Gentlemen! The Dual Element tournament is now in session! Who will rise to the top and show they are the master of the elements? Where they most prove they can control not one but two elements at once. All the while fighting enemies who can wield elements that are the perfect against them. Welcome to the dual element tournament
Great! Who is my opponent?
You can check to see who you're fighting the bracket linked here: Dual Element Tournament Bracket
Alright, how do I face my opponent?
Hunt them down! First, send them a PM with your available times. It is recommended that you list all times in EST. Writing "I'll see you at sundown, Saturday" is too vague and will not help you and your opponent meet your two-day time limit for completing your duels. You may also reply in this thread to set up matches. It is recommended that post in this thread in addition to sending a PM to your opponent.
Good Game! My match is over, now what do I do?
Post the results of your duel here! We would love to see some screenshots of your epic matches, so feel free to share! Do not forget to be courteous. We will be updating the bracket and Battles List continuously as the tournament progresses, so help us out by reporting your match results promptly.
Who am I facing next?
You can check the bracket or Battles List, and PM your opponent.
What were the rules again?
I'm glad you asked! Please check the following quote for the rules once again. The tournament runs much smoother if everyone knows what to do and what to expect. As always, if you have any questions regarding a rule, do not hesitate to post it either in this thread or in a PM to me!
GENERAL TOURNAMENT RULES AND GUIDELINES
PvP Double Elimination Tournament. Duel invitation only, so players will have to challenge each other via the "Duel" option for each fight, one after the other. The tournament will be identical to last time (double bracket). A double bracket consists of two different sections - an upper bracket and a lower bracket; when the tournament begins, everyone starts in the upper bracket. As the tournament progresses, those who lose will be automatically sent to the lower bracket and matches will continue there. If you lose in the lower bracket, you're officially out of the tournament as you've lost both matches. The final match will be between the winner of each bracket.
A match is a series of 3 duels with the same opponent. If you lose 2 matches, you are out of the tournament!
You must win the best out of 3 battles to defeat your opponent! The higher level player should allow the lower level player to go first; if you are both the same level, decide who gets to be the most courteous and allow their opponent the initiative! In the case of a tie (1 win each), continue dueling until someone wins 2 matches in a row. Alternate who goes first between matches.
Duelists must use only characters listed for the tournament's theme . In this case, this means Dual Element characters. If your character is listed here Character List it qualifies for this tournament!,
No level restrictions. Duelists can use any level character. (Disclaimer: Participating in the tournament could mean having to face a level 20 opponent, so be prepared!).
Arcane Ranger, Great Pumpking, and Queen Aegea characters are banned! Despite these three characters, you may use any character that was approved for the tournament.
Seven day period for players to sign up, starting from the time stamp shown in the first post of the sign-up thread.
For a valid sign-up, players must make a post including their in-game name as well as your (roughly) Timezone! If you do not know what time zone you are in, just a general continent would be helpful (exp; Europe, Australia, Central US, Land of Purple Doom, etc.) Please do not post your actual address or zip code or even state! We only need to know enough for match-making, nothing else.
After the 7 days sign-up period the thread will be locked and you can't sign up anymore (this may change depending on the amount of people who sign up!).
It is very resourceful to check the forums regularly when the tournament has begun. This will make it a lot easier for both your opponent as well as yourself when it comes to arranging duel times.
If you must drop out for whatever reason, please post your forfeit in the tournament thread, AND also PM me ( Kiyone) so they know to update the bracket and battles list!
To ensure that everyone has a fair chance, ArchKnights will PM you (via Battleon Forums) to indicate that your match timer has begun.
When the tournament starts, players will be responsible for contacting each other (either through posts in the tournament thread or through PM's) to arrange duel times.
If no contact is held from a participant for over 48 hours, they will be disqualified! Remember, no-shows = forfeit!
Make sure you post in the tournament discussion thread so we all know the results of your duel! Remember to be courteous in victory or in defeat. Post evidence of your match if you can. We all want to see! (Please read this if you don't know how to take a screenshot and upload it to a site).
Once more, please remember that since this is a Forum Based Tournament, the winner will not be getting any recognition or perks ingame! We will arrange some sort of cool forum-prize though! Or since I'm running this I am willing to try draw the winner if they want. A pencil drawing of an existing Oversoul Character. Which be around these style/skill.
All Artix Entertainment Forum Rules and Oversoul General Discussion Forum Rules apply in the tournament forum threads.
quote: Once again, this tournament's element is Dual Element. So get ready to dual you way to the finals!
In order to make things a bit more clear, I'll try my best to explain some of the rules said here.
Opponents have 48 hours to arrange a duel. If there is no communication from one end of the participant, he/she will be eliminated after the specified time period. Please understand that this does not mean that you only have 2-days to complete a duel, rather, 48 hours to keep communication between yourself and your opponent. If my fellow AK's or I find that someone hasn't logged in for 2-days, that's a very clear indication that he/she is making little attempt to participate and you will be eliminated. Additionally, If I get complaints from the participants, that will also affect your position within the tournament. It's always best to update your whereabouts and keep the discussion going in the thread!
When a match goes too long, what happens?
Under normal circumstances, a match may be prolonged to an insane number of duels. If that numbers reaches 7+, we will use the Poker Rules provided in the Sign Up thread. When one of the AK's sees that a duel is creating inconsistencies in the bracket, we will personally PM the participants explaining the situation. If you do not receive a PM from us, simply continue the match like normal.
