OFFICIAL CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

Contest for DM 32 – Arvat!

SECOND DELUXE ARVAT CONTEST EXTRAORDINAIRE…

Who can join? Anyone with a team in Arvat as of 11/1/2020.

When does it start? First turn due after 11/1/2020

How long does it run? 13 turns

How do I join? Announce your manager name and team name in the Arvat newsletter prior to 11/1/2020 and state that you are entering the contest.

Prior to the contest actually starting you need to have 2 rollup certs sent to the Dark One care of RSI. No sheets, no contest.

How do I win the contest? The team which has accrued the most points as of the end of the 13th turn is the winner. The team which has the 2nd most points is declared the runner up. And the team which has the 3rd most points is declared honorable contender. Everyone else is a loser and should be ridiculed.

How do I score points?
1.) Every challenge you win vs. another team in the contest = 10 points, as long as that challenge is to a warrior equal to or above yours in the rankings. Except for the Duelmaster who can challenge anyone he wants.
2.) You also earn bonus points for every challenge won. For every point of recognition your target is ranked above you, you earn one bonus point. This is for challenges only.
3.) If you are challenged by a warrior below you and defeat him, you will gain 5 points.
4.) Also every random matchup that you win will earn you 5 points – up or down.
5.) You CAN downchallenge, however you get no points for doing so, and if you are beaten, your opponent will earn 10 points and the right to ridicule you in the newsletter.
6.) Bloodfeud challenges count just like regular challenges during the contest.
7.) In addition there are the following bonus points that are awarded each turn:
A.) Duelmaster earns 10 points
B.) Graduating a warrior earns 10 points
C.) Recognition Leader (Chartered or Unchartered) earns 5 points (if the Duelmaster is the recognition leader as well, then only the DM points apply)
D.) Popularity Leader earns 5 points
E.) Turn’s most popular earns 5 points
F.) Top team on the move earns 5 points
G.) Current Top team earns 10 points
H.) Any warrior that earns a Tournament Champion in either the April Mail In or July FTF tournament earns 20 points
I.) Any warrior that earns a Tournament Victor in either of those tournaments earns 10 points
J.) Note that Top Chartered and Unchartered team awards do NOT earn points

What are the rules regarding other teams in the arena? If you challenge any warriors not participating in the contest you LOSE 20 points, unless the challenged warrior is the Duelmaster. It is always acceptable to challenge the Duelmaster. HOWEVER – if you are challenged by a team not in the contest and you win, you get 5 points. ALSO, you may challenge back the following turn. If you win that challenge you will get 10 points.

If any manager has a 2nd (or 3rd) team in the arena they may NOT challenge any warrior of any team participating in the contest or they are DISQUALIFIED.

What do I win if I win this contest?
1.) The winner wins all of the rollup certificates given as entry fee for the contest. In addition, the winner gets to pick 3 of the prizes below.
2.) The runner up gets to pick 2 of the prizes below.
3.) The honorable contender gets to pick one of the prizes below.
In addition, all competitors in the contest who run all 13 turns and at least 62 total fights will earn a potion of +1 bonus, which must be used on a warrior who participated at least 1 fight in the contest.
Also, the team that scores the most points on any one turn of the contest (other than the winner, runner up or honorable contender) can pick one prize that was NOT selected by those three.

Prize Pool:
Once a prize is picked it is removed from the pool.
1.) Limited stat switch (You can swap any 2 stats you want on an Arvat replacement rollup that you receive within the next 6 month)
2.) Extra replacements (Next time you get a replacement (or whenever you want within 6 months) in Arvat you can ask RSI for 5 additional replacements and select the best one for your team)
3.) Limited damage bump (You can pick one warrior on your Arvat team to move up one damage class – as long as he remains in-bounds for his ST/SZ stats)
4.) Favorite weapon knowledge (You learn the favorite weapon of one of your Arvat warriors – must be on the team during the contest)
5.) Favorite rhythm knowledge (You learn the favorite offensive effort and activity level of one of your Arvat warriors, who most have been on your team during the contest.)
6.) Shrinking potion (You get to take 3 points of size away from an Arvat replacement during the next 6 months and add the 3 points to another stat – both SZ and the other stat must remain in bounds)
7.) Extra skills (Any one of your warriors in Arvat learns 3 extra skills of your choice (no more than 2 can be in the same area and must be in bounds)
8.) Extra train (Any one of your Arvat warriors gets an extra stat train in the area of your choice – and must be in bounds)
9.) Limited protection from death (Pick one of your Arvat warriors and for 5 turns from application of this prize, that warrior will come back from the dead if he dies in the arena. No DAing and no tourneys)

All prizes must be applied within 6 months from the end of the tournament, must be on Arvat warriors from the team that participated in the contest and all prize results must be in bounds.

You just have to say "TEAM X" will be participating in the Arvat Contest Extraordinaire II

And send RSI an e-mail saying to send 2 certs to The Dark One with "Team X" on them.

That's it.

FYI - I was asked the question about DA challenges during the contest. The DA is a normal Arena function and contest teams can DA warriors freely, but obviously will not get any contest points for doing so.

So I just need to receive certs from several teams - though I at least have e-mails from those managers (Except for La Guillotine - please forward me your e-mail to RSI making that request to ensure you are locked in!!!).

15 contestants in all! Good luck to everyone! May the carnage begin!
