The Wheel of Misfortune – Kolact DM 10

Overview

A contest for Kolact (DM 10) that runs 12 turns (starting turn 889, due 02/03/2020). Squads will consist of four (4) teams. One (1) team per manager. Participating managers may not run multiple teams in the arena during the contest.

Premise

Master Darque is fiddling with Chaos Gates again, which creates CHAOS and randomness during the contest. Turn 1 (Kolact turn 889) and Turn 12 (Kolact turn 900) will be scored using STANDARD scoring (explained below). Turns 2 through 11 will use a wide variety scoring mechanisms and will be randomly determined as the contest progresses using a random generator. The scoring mechanisms will be posted in Kolact’s newsletter two (2) turns in advance, as well as on the D2 website under the contest forums.

Entry

Entry into the contest is open to anyone who meets the following criteria:

1) Form a squad. A squad will consist of four (4) managers. No more, no less. This means there will be NO single manager teams. You must choose a name for your squad.

2) Each manager must declare their intention to participate in the contest BEFORE Turn 1 of The WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE contest (No exceptions will be made). Declarations must include 1) TEAM NAME; 2) MANAGER NAME;

Will RSI help with players who want to participate but cannot find a squad? Through helping people join together or providing additional players (Jorja, Green Eyes, Suave, etc).
