    Tournament Rules

    Registration Requirements:

    • Provide the Character Name, Class, Level, Guild, and PVP Ranking.
    • Must have at least an A ranking on PVP in this or previous seasons. (show proof)
    • Must be at least level 90 and has Transcended their character.

    Tournament Format: (Double Elimination Format)
    • The tournament will be ran under a double elimination format.
      For further details on how it is run, please search it on google.
    • Matches all the way until Quarter Finals will be 2 wins out of 3 matches.
    • Semi Finals and Grand Finals will be 3 wins out of 5 matches
    • Grand Finals: Winner's Bracket finalist is twice to beat.

    Gameplay Rules:


    The intention of the rules is twofold. Firstly, to prevent players from getting perks that are flat out unobtainable by others who aren't as rich. Particularly problematic examples include Nocturne, Crit damage, Skill damage, and MP cost reductions; and secondly, to prevent players from being able to "specifically counter" another player. This usually plays out in the form of stacking elemental resists.

    But at the same time, the goal should be to encourage flexibility and let players use the pieces they prefer and typically use. Also, it would be fair for us to expect a "reasonable" level of gearing: that everyone would have access to skill rings, MP necklaces, accessories from PVP-oriented activities (Arena, Ereda), etc.

    The rules are written in a "cascading" format. Where more specific rules take precedence over more general ones. E.g., even if the Global Rules allow for something, it may be banned explicitly; or vice versa where something is explicitly allowed.

    Global Rules:
    • Must only contain "standard stats". Meaning, everything listed in your character window from HP to jump speed, and elemental resists.
      • This disqualifies things like on-hit effects (Nocturne, Cold shock etc.), Crit damage, Skill damage, etc.
      • Stats that are listed in the item info but don't manifest themselves in sparring are not considered. E.g., dungeon-only effects obviously don't matter; reduction to repair cost doesn't matter; and even though HL has the potential to give 10% crit damage, the use of its incomplete set (HL 3/5 and below) is still allowed because it doesn't give the effect that is banned.
    • Any kind of socketing is allowed (even for things otherwise forbidden like skill damage or double attack) because it's simply too hard to enforce this.
    • ERP is allowed because it's too expensive to force players to reset.

    Equipments (Weapon and Armor):
    • All sparring gear is allowed. (Seasons 1-4)
    • All non-sparring equipment is disallowed (4D, SD, henir etc.)
    • No elemental attributes on any pieces, including armors too.

    Costume and Accessories:
    • Ice Burner costumes and Costume Suits are allowed.
    • No restrictions on mixing and matching pieces between sets.
    • All arena champion pieces are allowed, including Season 5 (helm, cape, earring, leg-wing.)
    • All MP-goggle variants are allowed.
    • All Ereda pieces are allowed.

    Ring Usage:
    • All skill ring variants are allowed, but they cannot be used to complete forbidden set effects, like Eltrion's 3/3 missiles.
    • Other elemental rings (giving resist and proc) are banned.
    • Ring of brilliant protection and Ring of Fury are banned.

    • Only titles giving purely standard stats are allowed. E.g., supersonic, light speed etc.
    • This disqualifies titles like eclipse, painkiller, ancient history etc.

    • All Hyperactive and Couple/Marriage skills are banned from usage.

    Ruleset is done by eccnecc

    Map Picking and Bans:
    • Starting map will always be Tree of El - Bottom to match the current season.
    • Subsequent maps are determined by the losing player of the round.
    • Tree of El - Bottom cannot be picked after the first round.

    Banned Maps: Cargo Airship, Tyrant’s Arena, Hope Bridge, Sander Oasis,
    Lanox Lava, Garpai Sandstorm, Bethma Lake, El Treetop , Judge's Heart and Elrios Bay

    • If the player is not present within 5 minutes of being summoned, it will be considered an automatic loss for the specific match.
    • They'll be able to still participate in their next match if they have one, however.
    • Failure to comply with the rules and/or unsportsmanship-like conduct will result in disqualification.

    That's an error on my part as I haven't updated it due to copy-pasting from an older tournament. I've updated it now!

    I think for simplicity, it would better to specify the costume/accessory restrictions in terms of broader rules, rather than listing specific ones.
    So far, the intention I see is twofold:

    1. No costumes/accessories that give crit damage or skill damage (henir 4/5, aa 4/4, eo 3/3, rm 4/4 etc.)

    2. No costumes/accessories that give onhit effects (glacial, nocturne etc.)

    Which can be roughly reduced to: "no costumes/accessories that give stats/effects beyond what's listed in your stats window". In other words this would be all the standard stats that you can get from magic stones; plus p/matk, p/mdef, and resists, which come on most IBs.

    And it would help to have the bans be based on the stats you end up getting in the end. So for a costume set like henir where the crit damage effect only comes out at 4/5, there wouldn't be any harm to allow for 3/5 or below. Also keep in mind that with the ban on IB weapons, almost if not all of the crit/skill damage accessory effects are already impossible to get.

    All by my lonesome self
    That's a really steep entry fee for just a 500m grand prize...

    3rd place gets 100m wat

    i think if you want to sponsor a tourney, you should supply most of the portion of the prize yourself, having just the small pool of registration fees from 8 people as a prize is kinda ridiculous lmao
