ToA Dueling Tournament!

Addressed to: Everyone


The registrations for the dueling tournaments are now open!

There are three, independent tournaments this year:
1. Standard Duel
2. Engineer Duel
3. Random Duel

You can register for none, one, two or all. (Use TOA to see syntax) The way matches work this year are going to be a bit different. We're going to start with a seeding round. Once the seeding round starts, participants will be chosen by the system based who is online and how many games they've played. If you are online, and registered, you may suddenly find yourself selected for a duel.

You do not have to duel if selected. When you are selected, you will be whisked off to a ready room where you will be refreshed and given three minutes to prepare. If you do not wish to duel, you may use the portal in one of the rooms attached to the ready room to exit. Excessive or strategic exiting may be held against you for purposes of advancing to the next round, but does not count as a loss. Exiting will render you ineligible for further participation for a cooldown period.

Once the three minutes end if neither party exits, you will be placed in a small area (a copy of the shard or champion battle area) and told who your opponent is. This is not an arena battle, this follows the same rules as the champion battle system. There will be a cooldown period after a battle to prevent you from repeatedly being summoned into combat.

Both participants will be awarded daily credits. Additional credits will be distributed at the conclusion of each round based on your record. Having multiple alts play during the seeding round is permitted (so long as you don't do so at the same time), however, multiple alts of the same player will not be permitted to advance.

For the standard duels you will be playing with your character and using your items. You will not get consumed items back. For the engineering and random duels, you will be playing an "Arena Hero", which is a character specially made for battle. The Arena Heros should be stocked with everything that you need to do battle, but you will need to use your three minutes wisely to equip. Needless to say, attempting to keep or transfer the Arena Hero's items or things will get you in trouble.

For the random battle, you will be playing a random profession. Your opponent will be the same random profession as the one you are assigned. The profession may or may not change each battle you play.

To register, please use the TOA command.
