On Saturday 28 June at midnight GMT I propose we have an all-in brawl, to be called The Grand Combat.

The winner gets a heavy sword (to be provided by one of my alts) and the right to call themselves "Battlemaster".

The winner is the person who kills the most number of people within the space of 48 hours on the battlefield.

The battlefield is Unity Island.

All deaths are to be logged on the Underworld.

Participants should have a truce 48 hours before the start time to allow all players to get to the battlefield.

All players should register here.

Ibn al Xuffasch has the heavy sword and is on the island.

Any questions?

[Modified to remove rule regarding zerging, and the date, to avoid confusion- Dave]

I dont think zerging is permissible at all by the terms of conduct. Eh. Sounds rather fun, this contest.

The flight was heavenly
the sky my ocean
As I soared beyond the clouds
and golden voices called me home
You asked "Do you believe in love?"
and I shook my head
So, your sins unto me as I fall down
never to return from this land
My wings are clipped, my voice stilled,
Goodbye.

Ah well, just this one time, just for 48 hours on one island.

I'll be moving all my abandoned alts there so there will be plenty of cannon fodder.

Multiple alts are permitted but should not be used against each other, but can be used in tandem - ie. zerging is permissible (just for a change - why not?).

Isn't zerging using multiple characters to have an unfair advantage over other players? I don't see this contest being an exeception. I mean, what if someone with 5+ alts (each with heavy swords for emphasis) decided to slaughter everyone in tandem just to win a heavy sword? One player means a fair advantage for everyone (unless if you wanted a REALLY fair advantage for everyone, every player can only use a machete/knife i.e. no Heavy Swords, no TTAs, no extra XP->AP)

Sounds like fun, I'm in, unless there's zerging involved. Seriously, it's like inviting the Cult of Bill for a bloody picnic.

EDIT: Where is Unity Island?

Most of us have three alts. Most of us also have IP hit limitations. So your alts will be able to run around and slash to their heart's content albeit with limitations. If you're smart you could wait and pick off those who have burned out their AP. You have 48 hours after all. 

If you only have one alt, then you can choose to participate, or not.

Where is Unity Island?

North of Durham, south of the shipwreck, a diagonally shaped island off the far west coast.

Ah, the potato-shaped island, I see. But would Al-Simon approve of attacking in succession?

If we violate the ToS now, what stops us from doing it in the future?

>Sigh< Then don't participate. Its one-off, for a limited purpose, and everyone who will be involved knows what the deal is. There's no deception.

The idea is to have a novel event, with a decent prize.

I have 5 alts participating. He'd better be damned good at what he does because otherwise I'm going to kick his arse.

Not sitckied and its supposed to be this weekend.

Unless I hear otherwise, I will defer it for a week, and contact Simon to promote it.

It seems the general feeling is that no one wants to permit zergs, so we can promote it in a zerg free format. My own alts are in the vicinity and can stand around as free targets.
