@  Cookie : (18 July 2017 - 05:23 PM) @dio thanx for askin
@  Cookie : (18 July 2017 - 05:17 PM) @Dio ^_^ nope...everything alright!
@  Spirit : (18 July 2017 - 04:43 PM) @gonshot23 Do you know how when you log into your character, Jacque asks you to pick your battle mode? Upon choosing that battle mode, you cannot use the effects of another battle mode. If you are interested in the effects of another path's set, try making a character with that path
@  gonshot23 : (18 July 2017 - 01:52 PM) @Spirit so the additional stats and effects will not work on other paths? T_T
@  Spirit : (18 July 2017 - 01:50 PM) @gonshot23 Path-bound means that it is restricted to that path. If it is a Guardian path item, for example, only Guardian characters can use it and its effects will not work on characters that are not in the Guardian path.
@  gonshot23 : (18 July 2017 - 01:45 PM) hello! what does "Path Bound" in items mean?
@  Dio Brando : (18 July 2017 - 02:24 AM) Hola Cookie. Necesitas ayuda?

@  Jacque : (17 July 2017 - 06:04 AM) @selesia Nopes... read it again and compare to this article: http://experience-ro...mple-chapter-3/
@  selesia : (16 July 2017 - 08:15 PM) @spirit @jacque what does the "temple completion record increase by 1 of the Temple Raider Fortress do? If it is supposed to enable you to make gems without needing to complete the quest, it is not working
Thanks
@  Spirit : (16 July 2017 - 03:22 PM) @Seraphimei : We have custom pets, which are Nidhoggr's Revenge, Firefox, Valaris, Shell King, Wandering Spirit, King Poring, and Sphinx. Since they each give such powerful bonuses, we modified the success rates of taming pets to be at 10%. You can find more information here: Custom Pets.
@  Spirit : (16 July 2017 - 03:19 PM) @gonshot23 : Try again. Is it still occurring?
@  Seraphimei : (16 July 2017 - 01:55 PM) Hi guys, is there anything unique about the pet system in this server?
@  gonshot23 : (16 July 2017 - 01:47 PM) hello sir! I have "Failed to communicate with server" error on patcher

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.
