41st Vytal Tourney Q&A/Poll/Rules
« on: June 18, 2018, 01:14:17 PM »
It's been deemed to have enough interest so we're going through with this again. There's gonna be some changes though and they'll be listed below. If you think a rule is dumb, feel free to talk about it in the comments.

First of all, last time if a single team signed up for something then we had an NPC or NPC team fight them. Not this time, it just didn't work great last time and it takes a lot of time to create the NPCs necessary. So what happens if you're the only one who signs up for 4th year 4v4? Well, nothing. You won't fight but you also don't win the bracket by default as that would encourage people to sign up for fight they think or know won't be populated and then not be likely to participate if someone else does sign up.

Speaking of 4v4, we're only doing 1v1s by default this time. If you really, really want to do 2v2 or 4v4 and there's at least two teams then sure we'll put something up but just so you know, 2v2 is a mess and 4v4 is a cluster fuck.

Most important rule: You may have the same character in each of the bracket types but you cannot have more than one character in the same bracket and year. That is, I could not have two first years in the first year 1v1 but I could have a first year in the first year 1v1 and a third year in the third year 1v1.

4v4: Matches are estimated to have a very low turn out. Only OFFICIAL TEAMS may participate in this bracket type. This means the team you were assigned to by Atlas/Beacon/Haven/Shade and you MUST have all four members agree to participate in the round.

2v2: This is expected to have a low turn out. If you have two characters on a team they only one can be in this round.

1v1: This is going to be busy.

Hunter's Bracket: A 1v1 bracket for anyone with an official hunters license. Test you might against other fighters of the highest caliber.

Staff members will play the parts of referees in this tourney, but only if they do not participated. I know for certain u won't be participating in anything but the hunters bracket and I'm not entirely sure if I will participate in that so I can referee for everything but that. We are there to both make sure matches run smoothly as well as to work as a check, if someone decides to challenge a post.

The matches themselves will run off a similar system to that of the past tourney, you both start off with 100% aura, attacks must be given a % damage value, it is up to the other person to decide whether or not they would hit and are responsible for taking the damage (unless an autohit penalty is required.). If you feel that your opponent has made an unfair attack value or dodged unfairly, you may contact a referee and we will determine whether or not it was unfair. If it was, the post must be edited to what we deem to be fair. That said, even if no one contacts us, we'll still be checking in on threads every now and again.

Semblances will work on a stamina system, the more you use them the more worn out you become. It is up to you to play this fairly, if you don't and referee sees you you'll get penalized. Don't fuck it up for everyone else.

In matches, it is required that you post within 3 days, if you don't and do not send a notice to BOTH a referee and your opponent beforehand, you will be given an autohit penalty. That is whatever attack was in someone's post before you didn't post will automatically hit. If there was no attack in the post, one may be edited in as long as a ref okays it. If you do not post in 4 days without notice following the auto hit, your character is disqualified. If you think tou won't be able to post for 7 days at any time during the tourney, do not sign up.

These rules count for everyone, normal members, minions, moderators, and admins. Do not be afraid to talk to one of the staff is anyone is breaking any rules.

"Hey if this is the 41st tournament and the last one was the 40th shouldn't the people in the last one be two years older?" Yes but shut up, time is convoluted in Remnant. We don't force anyone to advance years so it doesn't matter really.

Because It came up a couple of times last time I'll ask publicly. Can we get a ruling on cheesing the de-activation of aura to be hit while not losing points in the tourney. E.G. Gray's semblance.

There will be disciplinary action taken against a combatant if they: Continue fighting when either their opponent's or their own aura level drops below 15%, purposefully drop their own aura to gain an advantage over their opponent either by making them purposefully pull their punches or to cause them to be disqualified by inflicting actual damage on the combatant either intentionally or not, or cause damage to their opponent by inflicting them with enough damage to carry past an aura break.

The punishments for the first condition will be disqualification or a disciplinary action carried out by the combatants home academy. The second condition will be met with disqualification. The third condition will be met with disciplinary action carried out by the combatant's home academy.

These restrictions are in place in order to prevent a repeat of last tournaments multiple gunshot wounds. A semblance like Gray's could easily land him in the hospital or dead and that is the last thing the Vytal Festival needs.

Can a combatant fight if they had an engagement before the match and showed up with decreased aura?

Does a combatant have to bring their primary weapons or can they show up with anything (reasonable)?

If a combatant shows up without full aura, their match can be postponed a few hours to allow them to recover.

All weapons and equipment in the tournament must be registered with the tourney committee beforehand in order to be allowed in (on the character sheet.)

What about consumables? Can they bring only a specified amount of Dust and ammo to each fight?

Edit: Another question, what about authority restricted semblance(e.g. Siu Ceong's Dragon by Vale Airspace, Sean Acacia's high-intensity Aura Bomb by Shade Academy)?

Combatants can bring as much dust or ammo as they normally would on a mission.

I can't speak for the dragon but Amity is as large as it is in the show so there could be a space problem. The highest intensity explosion would not be allowed as it would likely break the third condition that was in the response to Arcus as well as the Shockwave presenting a threat of breaking the shielding that protects the spectators.

Two questions.  Is the Good News allowed, and can Aurelia start fights with her semblance active?
Smokey Emberstone Beacon 1st Year and the Immovable Gunslinger of Team BSSM
 "I've got more than enough firepower to beat you" "You've only got one bullet!" "Like I said, more than enough"

Aurelia Lumen Beacon 3rd year and the Warhorse of Team (TBD)  "Lay down your weapons, lest you wish to taste my steel!"

Wabul "Toast" Paka Shade 1st year and the Acrobatic Swashbuckler of Team (TBD)  "Hey, I'm gonna go jump off a bridge, who's with me?"
