King of Primus 2014
16 of the top teams and managers in Primus!
Each team must consist of 5 warriors of each of a *different* style.
A team may consist of one or more managers, and each manager can belong to only one team.
Managers who are able to field 5 warriors of different styles for themselves are STRONLY encouraged to do so. But for those that can't, combination teams are definitely allowed. Management reserves the right to veto any combination teams deemed "overpowered". (Unlikely but you never know)
The King of Primus is a bracket-style competition where teams of 5 warriors fight against each other in a match-play like system.
Teams will be seeded 1-16 based on the AVERAGE rank in Primus of their warriors. (As of turn 644) Warriors MUST be listed in the Turn 644 Newsletter in order to be eligible for the competition.
In case of ties in average rank, ties will be broken by the ranking of the highest warrior.
Then each team will have a ranking of 1-5 based on their ranking in Primus. (As of turn 644) During match play, The #1 warrior from Team A will match up with the #1 warrior from Team B, the #2 Team A warrior will match up with the #2 warrior from Team B, and so forth. Warrior rankings will remain static throughout the competition as will manager seedings.
The King of Primus will be the one team that goes 4-0. Even though the contest is single elimination to determine the winner, there will be a consolation round and everyone will have 4 matches--in the end everyone will have the opportunity to play 4 matches and find out where their stable really ranks in Primus!
The contest will take place starting on Primus Turn 646. It will run for 4 turns ending in Turn 649. However, remember that your warriors must be listed in the 644 newsletter to be eligible and it's not a bad idea to climb up high in the rankings now to earn as high a seed as you can.
In case more than 16 teams sign up, Turn 645 will the "play in" round, where teams seeded on the lower end of the bracket will compete for the right to enter the competition. The number of teams who need to compete in the "play-in" round will be determined on the number of teams who enter the competition. For example, if 18 teams sign up, then the 15th seed will play the 18th seed and the 16th seed will play the 17th seed for the right to enter the main bracket. (Similar to how it works in March Madness)
Only The Mun is guaranteed entry into the main bracket by virtue of his winning the consolation tourney in the last King of Primus.
To enter, you can sign up in this thread, write an ad in the 102 newsletter or PM/Email Manager with the following information. The Name(s) of managers on a team, the 5 warriors with ID #'s of your team, the style of your warriors, and what warrior you want to select for a possible Royal Court Selection. (See prize section.
1. Bonnie (29-2780) (AB)
2. Weird Head Boy (63-2216) (LU) *
3. Koji Shikeru (40-2619) (SL)
4. Skyfire (37-2065) (PL)
5. Patience (1-2619) (TP)
* Denotes Royal Court Prize Pick
Since the contest takes place in the arena, you'll have to read the newsletter and the forums to figure out who you're going to match up against. We'll post all the managers and teams before the contest begins as well to make it easier.
The winner of the competition will be named the King of Primus!!! As a winner, you get to control the fate of the arena for a very special Turn 650! The Winner of the contest can select three
"decrees" from a list of items that will effect how Primus plays out on it's historic Turn 650!
- Rename the Arena for 1 turn
- Have a non-automated spy report written.
- Increase/Decrease the Skill Learning for the turn
- Increase/Decrease the Training % for the turn.
- Increase/Decrease the Kill Percentage for the turn.
- No Challenges and/or Avoids
- Bring back the Defend Gate Challenge for a turn
- Have an NPC Match-Up Week!
-If you have other ideas, the commission may consider it, but will have the right to refuse.
As the King of Primus, you also get the first member of your Royal Court! When entering a team, each team who participates must designate one of their warriors to be in the "twin pool". (No DYOs or roll-up altering warriors allowed) After winning, one warrior will be drawn from the pool at RANDOM, and you will have the option to be able to "twin" that warrior's numbers and stick him on an existing team (no-tourney arenas not allowed) if you so desire. Consider carefully your odds of winning when choosing a warrior to donate to the Royal Court.
You may opt out if you desire--but if you win, you don't get this part of the prize.
The Consolation Champion (9th place) gets 5 Team Roll-Ups.
The last place manager is deemed the Court Jester and wins a Hyborian War Set-Up.
In addition, for the 16 managers in the main bracket every match WIN (no matter who it is), wins a +1 stat train potion. Stat train potions must not be used after the freeze date and before a tourney. Combo Teams only get 1 stat train potion per win. (To be broken up at their discretion)
For everyone else, there is an exciting Consolation Prize Pool to keep everyone motivated to finish high as possible. There are 16 items in the Consolation Prize Pool--one of each item. First place gets his first choice of item in the pool, second place gets the 2nd choice and so on, and whoever finishes last gets his choice of remaining items. Here are the items in the Consolation Prize Pool:
