Dear ExperienceRO,

 

So I've launched "The Duelist" into beta testing today even though I've tested it myself endless times on the offline server, I believe there might still be areas to fix and/or improve on. Either way, "The Duelist" will be "THE THING" when it's tested stable and stuff, also only then I'll be implementing "The Duelist" currency namely the Duelist Coins.

 

 

1. INTRODUCTION

I've heard many times players getting back to me "It's not fair!", "Ganging", etc. in ANY PvP Environment. I myself love Trading Card Games (TCGs) well uh thanks to my fiancee, and we did participate in these TCG tournaments. It's a grand thing I tell you, and card players (hundreds of them) are being paired up and they fight fairly. Well, I brought that idea into ExperienceRO.

 

I told you before that I actually hired someone experienced to write us this feature, however, what he did wasn't really what I wanted in mind simply because, if you have a group of let's say 14 players paired in the event, 7 matches total since they are all paired up, 1 match at a time, given that a match might take up to 1.5 minutes, it's just too long for the others to wait for Round 1 to complete only then the winners from Round 1 advancing to Round 2. I wanted a minimal frustration environment so that players are ready to compete without anything else affecting their morale etc. I also wanted a tournament that gives a "live update" on what's happening inside the event so those outside - A little like Hunger Games here... hehehe.

 

So yes, I got the script from this guy, didn't like it, and because I really really REALLY want the best for the server (you know this is true), I took it up upon myself and I wrote the whole tournament script. After one month spent on researching and scripting, then followed by a few more weeks of intensive testing and improving, I actually tested most of the scenarios I could think of, and I applied to the Core script progressively. It expanded and grew hahaha... like... wow.

 

I'm happy to present you "The Duelist".

 

 

2. SPECIFICATION

"The Duelist" is a single elimination-based tournament PvP event. This, the design of "The Duelist"

 

  • Feature Name: "The Duelist"
  • Registration: Free @ moonhaven (Events area, right side of moonhaven)
  • Frequency: Once a week, Sunday, 11:00 pm (+8 GMT or Server Time, or manually triggered)
  • Max Players: 32 (16 pairs)
  • Waiting Room: 1 (for Briefing and Rest intervals)
  • Arenas: 16 (based on 1@ge_st)

 

 

3. TIMERS

  • Registration: 180 seconds (3 minutes)
  • Briefing (after Registration closes): 20 seconds
  • Pairing & Checking: 10 seconds
  • Per-Round: 90 seconds (fixed timer to wait for others to finish their matches)
  • Rest Time: 60 seconds

 

 

4. STAGES

  1. Registration
  2. Briefing
  3. Pairing & Checking (if two participants left, jump to Stage 6)
  4. Match
  5. Rest (repeats Stage 3
  6. Championship
  7. End

 

 

5. MECHANICS

  1. "The Duelist" checks your MAC Address if there's a duplicate on the list.
  2. Participants will be paired. Each pair will be on an Arena; meaning if there are two pairs, Arena 1 and Arena 2 will be used.
  3. Odd pairing will get a "Bye" and advances to the next round.
  4. Winner of the Round advances to the next round.
  5. After 90 seconds elapsed, and if there are no winners will result to a "Draw". They advance to the next round.
  6. If any participant logs out, he/she will be disqualified (too bad if you got disconnected. Blame your ISP) and removed from the list.
  7. Should an opponent logs off after pairing is done, the remaining pair will get a "Bye" and advances to the next round.
