Ganksgiving is here! After years and years of cultivating the land and sowing the soil we finally have reach the yield we are looking for! Thankfully all of what I just said was complete and total BS. Ganksgiving will be held on Nov. 22nd and 23rd and will feature a 1 vs 1 style of tournament play. Each player is allowed to bring 2 different LAS's with them. Sadly due to copyright laws full healing builds are not permitted and should not be used with out express vocal or written consent of the PCC(Protostar Communications Commission). Any illegal use or distribution of those LAS will most likely drown you in lawyers, no one likes that.

 

Matches will be played in a double elimination, fight to the death, arena style, combat explosion! Each match will consist of 3 rounds. The semi-finals will be best of 5 and the Grand Finals will be a best of 7. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. The rest of you don't get anything because you didn't win, deal with it! The entry fee for the tournament will be 25 gold with the options to donate more to the prize pool! Each faction will have its own prize pool and arena set forth by the tournament organizer.

 

To ensure the tournament is 100% fair everyone will be naked, that's right naked! Costumes are encouraged but going commando is also encouraged. Each player is required to only use the level 50 blue weapon you are able to acquire without any rating.

 

Sign-Ups are open from now till next Wednesday(Nov. 19th) Please remember that you must follow the rules set in place by the tournament organizers and its admins. You can view the full list of rules here https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing.

 

If you wish to be added as a sponsor or donate to the prize pool please contact me via forum PMs.

 

 

The staff here at ganksgiving and the PCC can not promise that you will not suffer any loss of limbs, elevated blood pressure, the erg to punch small animals, loss of your left toe, the need to rob a bank, depression, chronic gas, your ability to speak, swallow food, paying for hospital bills, loss of life, loss of a heartbeat, remembering who you are, the need for sudden attractiveness to chua, creating a rip in the fabric of space, causing the lopp rebellion, etc....

Can't wait!! This prize pool is going to be crazy, I will pony up some myself... Maybe offer up a credd giveaway too. :D

We'll have a handful of other folks from Warhound Events cross-faction streaming our perspective too. Bazeleel is of course the primary stream, though.

A lot of folks who were behind the Wildstar Fighting Championship are offering their help with this, which is fantastic as they have the logistics Dominon side already established. It'll be a great time for all on Warhound! :)

Oh I get what you're suggesting, but I meant directing/advertising everybody to your stream while also having background streams for those interested for different perspectives.

As with any gaming events/esports I watch, I personally have few of the participant streams muted live, with focus/audio on the primary stream.

And then later on the pile of footage is always a goldmine for those doing the event.

Updated the rules and requirements for the tournament! Everyone will be dueling 100% nude! This is to remove any issues with people that have 1800 gear vsing people that do not.

I liked the idea of this contest but just as much as carbine you seem to understand balance. Congrats to the winning esper whoever the esper may be so long as they can have bolster/deer. Im testing it now to see if espers will be beatable but most likely doubt it. 

 

Edit: Yeap 95% congrats to the esper if its literally only the weapon and no gadgets and etc.

Rules aren't final. I'll be joining Baz in a round table discussion of sorts, with a lot of key figures in this event over the weekend. I'm certain Baz will be going much further indepth on Ganksgiving details closer to the event. If you wish to voice your thoughts on the matter, feel free to post them on the Warhound Events website and bepulse/stabbie and I will address it for you. I'd like to do a twitch livestream discussion for folks to participate in at some point, but I haven't brought that up with Baz (he's leading/running this) so we'll see.

Right now is just the obvious/basic stuff. I would reserve judgement until monday. :)

Between absorbs, bolster, and deer heal the judgement is already done. I 1v1'd a esper(Krys) Probably one of the best for an hour and could not get her below 30% it is just too much. I entered just Espers are the 1v1 gods. The only thing else is possibly stalkers. Should of dropped it into brackets based on gear and restricted some abilities and what not. Maybe in the future since this is kind of close and who knows after today the game might be officially over pretty much. If it does not die and things move on message me and ill help with the next tourney balance wise.

 

Pretty much no way to make 1v1 balanced. Im still gonna compete but most likely get knocked out by the first good esper/medic.
