WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE

DM 45 VERSION

Do you want to join an arena contest with cool prizes, but always have
trouble finding a partner? Fret not! I have just the contest for
you! No partners needed. Stormcrowe (DM 45) will be hosting a
contest for single teams. The rules are exactly the same as the
current WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE contest in Kolact (DM 10), but for single
teams!

Here is all the pertinent information so you can join us for a festive
time in Stormcrowe!

Overview

A contest for Stormcrowe (DM 45) that runs 10 turns (starting turn
424, due 05/19/2020). 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 (Stormcrowe turn 424) and
Turn 10 (Stormcrowe turn 433) will be scored using STANDARD scoring
(explained below). Turns 2 through 9 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
Stormcrowe’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) Bring a team to Stormcrowe (DM 45).

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 A) TEAM NAME and
B) MANAGER NAME. You can submit a declaration by:

a. A personal ad in DM 45 BEFORE turn 324.
b. A diplomatic note to Darque Ages (29) in DM 81
c. An email to rebelnerfherder @ yahoo.com (put WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE DM
45 in Subject Line)
d. Private Message in the Duel2 Chatzy channel

**NOTE: Failure to meet these criteria by the deadline will result in
NO ENTRY into the contest. Your team MUST be listed on the Master
Contest List for Turn 1 to participate. Please be mindful of the
requirements and submit them in a timely manner to avoid any
misfortunes.
