                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Time for me to go already?  My manager was hoping I could stick around a while
longer to pad the ol' team record.  Oh well, it's off to retirement for me!  Now I
can sit on the porch and play Blues all day.  As my opponents know by now, I'm not
all that stupid.  11-18 (+1)-8-11-18 (+1)-9-11 TP.  You can see, I'm nothing special
and gods know Buri has DA'd better, so I feel lucky to be where I am today.  He even
let me enter the tourney, seeing as how I graduated with perfect timing to use my
favorites VL/VL LO.  I had the rhythm nailed, but Longsword, go figure... you all saw
how well I used a SC, I don't know that I ever tried anything else.  I doubt I'll go
far in the tournament, but it's an honor to serve, nonetheless.  Fare well, Sunset!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SUNSET!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at ALL JACKED UP 
II's guildhouse after a 2-3-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 13th.  
Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week TOOL SHED went 3-2-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  Did only my 
eyes note the 4-1-0 record which RANDOM CHAOS managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  MIME BOGGLING caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested WAMBASU THE BOLD and was 
awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LORIO put 
down BARB, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was 
not present for the title fight this week as DAGAN boldly challenged SPOONFUL in 
order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for nothing has SPOONFUL in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SUNSET.  SUNSET, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is KANO CLAN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of NOMADIC 
TRIBE last week.  Busy avoiding KANO CLAN?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  WAMBASU THE BOLD take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in SUNSET.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that BISHOP posted a challenge against the more highly recognized SUPER 
CHICKEN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand BISHOP was bested by SUPER 
CHICKEN.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for MUSUBU KIN in the arena or on the 
streets of SUNSET.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
16-23-0.  SEVN HELLS must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by a 
successful Bloodfeud won by HARDY of CAJUN APOCALYPSE.  Hail HARDY for thy victory!  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SUNSET.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                           AVOIDS, BLOODFEUDS, & CHALLENGES

                                       by Pagan

     Ever wonder how the whole challenge/avoid thing works?
     Who you fight depends on exactly how it works.  We will never know exactly how it 
works unless we can get a look at the coding for the program, but this is how I think 
it works:

The Situation:
     The system allows a warrior to make two separate challenges and two distinct 
avoids.
     Avoids are distinct in that they MUST indicate a specific team to be avoided, so 
a "double avoid" indicates a single team twice, which by default means you are 
avoiding one team.  In this case, the second avoid is a duplicate and therefore a 
waste of an avoid.
     Challenges are to specific warriors.  You have a first challenge, and then you 
have a second challenge.

The Process:
     First the computer removes all Dark Arena challengers from the list of available 
warriors.
     Second, the computer checks for WHO fights WHO by going though all TVs and 
bloodfeuds, which are 100% sure to go through except in four instances:
     1. the warrior challenged does not fight,
     2. the warrior challenged is also making a bloodfeud or TV challenge and that 
challenge has already been assigned,
     3. the warrior has already been assigned to a Dark Arena fight,
     4. that warrior has declared your team to be one of his warrior's avoids, 
reducing your challenge to 50%.
     Third, the computer assesses all the regular first-challenge warriors and assigns 
fights.  All other challenges are at 100% chance of success except in a few instances:  
warrior challenged is going to the DA, warrior challenged is involved in a previously 
assigned challenge, warrior challenged is not running this turn, or warrior challenged 
has avoided your team at 50% chance to avoid.
     Fourth, the computer assesses and assigns all secondary challenges of warriors 
not so far assigned for bloodfeuds and TVs.
     Fifth, the computer assesses and assigns all the regular second challenges.
     Sixth, the computer assigns random matchups in each available class starting with 
the highest class first.
     Seventh, the computer finds the remaining warriors that have successfully avoided 
all first and second challenges and/or who also did not get randomly assigned, AND for 
whom no more available warriors remain in their class for random pairing.  All of 
these warriors get RSI-generated warriors to fight based on their class.
     So, if I'm right and avoids reduce the chance for a challenge to 50%, then:
     In the absence of an avoid
          single challenge = 100% success
          double challenge = 100% success, then an additional 100% success
     Where an avoid is involved
          single challenge vs avoid = 50% success
          double challenge vs avoid = 75% (chance to avoid is 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.25; 1 - 
0.25 = 75% chance to succeed

     Bloodfeuds and TVs may increase the percentage chance of success above 100%, or 
they may not.  I feel that their increased ability to get through is based solely on 
the way the computer assigns challenges.  They are first, so they are most likely to 
go through.  The 100% chance for a challenge to succeed is 100% if it's a TV bloodfeud 
and you are the first one to get assigned a fight that day because you are also the 
Duelmaster.  But after that the chances start to diminish rapidly.
     The run-through for second challenges theoretically means your challenge should 
be 100% but it's not the case if you are the LAST guy the computer goes to for finding 
challenges.
     If you don't double challenge, you significantly lower your chance to get your 
challenge through.  The second challenge is not equal to the first challenge.
