    First 2018 Semi-Annual Tournament


    Tournament Details:



    • The Serenti Invitational


    The Serenti Invitational was the first tournament ever held on Althanas, and consists of a series of traditional one-on-one battles.

    Rules:

    • Battles in the Serenti Invitational are scored the same as any regular battle. All standard rules of battle on Althanas apply.
    • Match-ups will be determined randomly at the beginning of the tournament.
    • The first player to post is allowed to create the setting for the battle.
    • Any players who do not post in their threads will be disqualified and the player who did participate will be removed from the next rounds.


    Advancement and Rewards:
    At the end of each round, the player with the better score will advance. The winner of the tournament will earn 4,000 EXP, while the second place and third place winners will receive 1,500 and 1,000 EXP respectively.

    Previous Winners:

    • Devon
    • Kaltrenix Gartoic
    • Elrundir Galadhrim
    • Storm Veritas
    • Relt PeltFelter





    • The Cell


    The Cell is a free-for-all tournaments were large groups of players battle inside steel mesh cells.

    Rules:

    • Players may register multiple alternate character accounts.
    • Players will be randomly divided into groups of 8 at the beginning of the tournament. To avoid disqualification each character (not player) must post at least 5 times in his or her thread.



    Advancement and Rewards:

    At the end of a round each player in the thread will receive a score, and the players with the three best scores in each of the cages will advance to the final round. EXP rewards for the first round are determined using the level of the highest character in the thread. The three players who advance will receive winning EXP, while the other five players will receive EXP as if they had lost the battle.

    All players who advanced from the first round will then participate in second round free-for-all to determine the winner of the tournament. The final round is scored identically to the first round, and the three winners are chosen by the top three scores with a first, second, and third place.

    Previous Winners:

    • Mist
    • The Solitary Soul
    • Hushpuppy
    • Roht Mirage





    • The Lornius Corporate Challenge


    A crowd favorite, The Lornius Corporate Challenge is a two-on-two tournament that puts teams of players in combat against each other.

    Rules:

    • Players must register for the tournament in teams. Players who wish to participate but cannot find a partner can still register and will be placed randomly with a partner once registration has closed (unless the player finds another member without a partner and they decide to team).
    • The LCC is a ranked tournament, meaning that the 24 teams will be seeded according to player votes. The top 8 teams will receive first round byes. Match-ups in the first round are determined using a tournament bracket which will be posted before the LCC starts.
    • The first team in an LCC thread has the right to describe the battle's setting.
    • If one member of a team is inactive the other player may continue the battle.



    Judgments/Rewards:

    Each LCC thread will be judged like a normal battle, and the team's score will be determined by averaging each player's individual score. The group with the highest team score will then advance.

    There will be three winners: a first, a second, and a third.

    Previous Winners:

    • Steel Duo (Mist and Sorjax)
    • The Do-Gooders (Edmund_Lorisiac and Kylin_Rouge)
    • Assassins of Alerar (Redrick and Thoracis)
    • Chivalry and Savagery (Glories of Myrmidion and Tusk)





    • The Gisela Open


    The Gisela Open is a tournament where each player controls a vast army and pits his or her force against that of his or her opponent's.

    Rules:

    • Perhaps the most difficult part of The Gisela Open is its registration. Each player is allowed a 1,000-unit strong army, but the player must describe each different unit in the registration thread and have it approved by the tournament moderator. Players are also allowed to have three heroes or commanders, and they also must be approved before the tournament starts.
    • The first player to post in a Gisela Open thread has the right to create the setting.
    • A Gisela battle must have at least 10 posts to earn regular EXP awards.


    Judgments/Rewards:

    Each Gisela thread will be judged like a normal battle, and the player with the highest score will advance to the next round.

    There will be three winners chosen, a first, a second, and a third.

    Previous Winners:

    • ACDragonMaster
    • LeopoldStevens
    • Silence Sei

    Since the Adventurer's Crown was voted as last Poll's winner, it is excluded from this semester's selections.

    Poll Closes 12/31/17.

    In all the time I've been here we've never actually ended up doing it and I'm really excited about the prospect of it.

    I'd prefer Cell but Gisela would be alright.

    So meant to vote The Serenti Invitational, but hit Gisela. I'd like to see any of them, personally. Even The Lornius Corporate Challenge would be awesome in my opinion. Get some 2-on-2 match ups going for writers that have never wrote together before in a competitive setting bonding.
