New tourney: The softcore rotation tournament

Post by timmermac » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:52 pm

I tried the hardcore Unique-of-a-kind tournament and realized that I don't much enjoy having to delete characters once they die. So, I'm going to do a non-hardcore version of it. The ultimate goal of this tournament is to get one character from each class to level 10000. Highest score at the end wins. The tournament starts immediately, and will end 60 days after the last score update. Please submit updates to this thread.

Here's the ruleset:


You must play each character class.

Shared stash usage is allowed, but it must start from empty. Also, if you play a non-tournament character at any point, the shared stash that you use for the tournament must be backed up and deleted, renamed, or moved. (I had to remove the temptation of using mine)

Here's a biggie: Characters must be played in rotation. Here's what I mean. A player must start with the Amazon. When the Amazon dies, you move to the Assassin. When that dies, you move to the Necro. And so on...

Save and exits to avoid death are not allowed. You'll have to use Ye Olde Town Portal to avoid skeletons in the early levels.

My version of the "used underwear" rule that Phlebiac instituted for his hardcore tournament will be adopted for this one. My version works like this: As long as any non-charm item has never been equipped, it can be moved between characters. Charm-type items must be moved to the shared stash before leaving town.

In PlugY, "AlwaysRegenMapinSP" must be set to 1

Edit: If a players multiplier drops to 00.000, it's game over. Should that happen, feel free to submit another entry.
One entry at a time, please. Al, Hans, Vern... Joining in?

Edit 2: There is no minimum level restriction for using posters. As soon as you can put a full one together, assuming that the poster doesn't have its own minimum requirement, feel free to start using it.

If anyone has other restrictions that should be added, feel free to suggest them.



Here's how scoring will work.
Players get one point per level gained for each character.
Players start with a multiplier factor of 10.000
For every death, .001 will be removed from the multiplier.
Maximum score will be 700000


Here's my entry:

Code: Select all

Player: timmermac
Amazon: CaptainCarter. Level 1, 1 deaths
Assassin: Teyla. Level 1, 1 deaths
Necromancer: ColonelONeill. Level 1, 1 deaths
Barbarian: RononDex. Level 6, 1 deaths
Paladin: Tealc. Level 1, 0 deaths
Sorceress: JanetFraiser. Level 1, 0 deaths
Druid: DanielJackson. Level 1, 0 deaths.

Multiplier: 9.996
Overall score: 119.952

Hmm... not off to the greatest of starts, here. Carter got whacked by skeletons, and Teyla got monkey stomped by a what I'm guessing was a Fire-enchanted Quill Rat minion not far outside the Rogue Encampment's gates.

Finally! A character that doesn't get whacked at level 1! Ronon suffered his first death to a skeleton in the Blood Moor. Now on to Tealc.

I don't understand... You mean that you must play for example with Amazon until she dies and then you change character?

Yep. A player pretty much goes left to right on the new character screen. My first post gives the order in which a player should go. A player will need to continue in the rotation as a character dies.

Nope. If you can put together a full poster, feel free to use it as soon as you're able to do so. Adding that to the initial post.

Edit: It's on the wiki now, too. Feel free to edit that as well. Hopefully, we'll get a bunch of participants.

Ronon got to level 8 and started the Den of Evil.... and promptly got roasted by a Fallen Shaman. Tealc has died more times than he's killed monsters so far. Now I know why I don't get spears

Welcome aboard, Sokol815. Don't worry too much about how much play time you've got. I'm giving this plenty of time to get going, as well as plenty of time with no updates before I decide to end it.

Code: Select all

Player: timmermac
Amazon: CaptainCarter. Level 1, 3 deaths
Assassin: Teyla. Level 3, 3 deaths
Necromancer: ColonelONeill. Level 1, 3 deaths
Barbarian: RononDex. Level 8, 3 deaths
Paladin: Tealc. Level 1, 3 deaths
Sorceress: JanetFraiser. Level 1, 3 deaths
Druid: DanielJackson. Level 6, 3 deaths.

Total levels: 21
Multiplier: 9.979
Overall score: 209.559
Fraiser bought it for the second time. I'm thinking she might take a while to get going, as getting a 2H staff to start with her may have been a bad idea. Most of my other melee characters have a spiked club. Tealc got a spear, and that's also turning out to be a major mistake. Carter ran into a Pecker... in the Blood Moor? wtf?! Teyla gained a level, then ran into a bunch of skeletons that she couldn't get away from. O'Neill got run over by a trapped chest and 3 skeletons.

Edit: All my characters now have died 3 times. Daniel got to level 6 before a champion pack of Zombies wiped him out. Since my roommate gets the computer for the next 3 days, that's going to do it for me until Saturday. Hopefully, more people will join up. Also, Sokol, please create your other 6 characters and enter them so that you get to at least the starting 70 points. You don't have to do anything with them, just create them so we know who they are.

As I have 2 teams in the Hardcore tourney and am also in my own "Evolution" tournament I won't have much time for this as well but as I like to support any Zy-El tournament I will join in. I'll post my team here and on the Wiki later on. Need to think up some new names.

I like the ruleset. Nice and uncomplicated :) .

Just one question though...are you going to allow rerunning of areas/acts/difficulties or will there be restrictions :?:

Also, it might be an idea for someone to create a "standardised table" for here. At the moment they are all different and it doesn't look quite right. Personally, I like the look of Bro's the best so far (maybe adjust it so the Multiplier and Total score are on the same line as the other headings so you don't have to scroll down to see the whole table) but I'll leave it up to you timmermac as you are the host.

Happy Zy-Elling :)

Ah... I wanted to ask same thing :)

Edit:
One more question... Is it allowed to restart the map (save and exit) when you kill all Quill Rats and Kobolds but you can't still kill Zombies, Skeletons and Peckers?

Rerunning areas/acts/difficulties is fine. As far as save/exits go, as long as you've used a TP scroll/waypoint to get to town first, then I'll not complain too much. One other thing... I'd like to see the occasional screenshot posted in this thread. If someone sees/picks up something cool, it'd be kind of neat to see it. Also, if you feel an urge to post about your journeys through the game, I'm not averse to reading them. You've already seen me post a few tidbits.

Ok. Everything is clear for me. So... Let's rock!

Good luck! :)

Darn... 1st try. After killing some Quils and Kobolds I came back to the Camp. Wrote "players 127" and went outside open some chests and pop-up rocks... Death from Skeleton after few minutes of running :P

God blessed my Assassin. She had XP Shrine right away from Camp exit. Many, many Quill Rats and Kobolds. Skeletons and Fallens were too but in less numbers:
Image
Kobold droped Quad Charm with Poision Damage I just added Jewel with +10% GF
Image
Thanks to that she was able to kill Skeletons at level 3 :!:
She ened with level 8, cleared Blood Moor and bought a Rogue.

PS. I never played Assassin before. But her Physical Hammer is great :D

Looks like the tournament is gaining momentum timmermac :)

Also make use of "Booster" (Tir, Tir) runewords for "Mana after kill". If you have enough you can replace your entire mana with 1 kill and will only have problems with any monsters with high hitpoints and higher players settings. Don't rely on Psychic Hammer forever though, as it is a single target skill only and not much use against large mobs. Once you can, replace it with Charged Bolt Sentry.

Why am I giving fellow competitors tips? Ah well, I guess that's just what I do :)

Still to make up a team but I'll get round to it some time today probably. Meantime....

Happy Zy-Elling :)

So.... I have been a little busy:

Artemisia yesterday was doing really well, until she got mobbed by some returned when I accidentally ventured into the cold plains. :(

Clytemnestra just keeps going and going... showing no signs of getting weaker. Currently running her on a players4 game.

I have made heavy use of the booster runeword... I may or may not have about 19 Tir runes on my person... Psychic hammer + all those recover mana on kill mods really get the job done.

I've never been so successful with an Assassin before... I guess I never really looked into what they can do in Zy-El. It's been good getting back into Zy-El, it has been almost 8 months for me.

Nice work sokol815. Keep it up :)

[EDIT]
Athena (Amazon)


Blood Moor run 1: Equipped Athena with a 3 socketed Spiked Club which will come in handy at level 4 when she can start using chipped gems. Got quite lucky with my first map with a house close to camp, lots of Quill Rats and Kobolds and not too many Skeletons which meant I got to level 4 in relative safety (a few potions were glugged of course but that's what they are for). Some early action. Drawing away Skeletons in ones or two's was the only way she could kill them prior to level 4. Now to socket some gems in her Spiked Club which should mean she can take on larger groups of Skeletons and maybe kill Spiked Fiends.

Put 3 chipped sapphires in her club and she can now take on groups of Skeletons up to about 4 as well as easily disposing of Spiked Fiends. Got to level 5 quite quickly and need level 6 to start making "Booster" runewords. There sould be enough monsters left on the map to do this easly and hopefully as far as level 8 or higher. Not found an XP shrine on this map yet so I would be happy enough with level 8 (anything beyond that will be a bonus).

Got to level 6 and made her first Booster in her belt. Also added another 2 chipped sapphires to her gloves for some more damage. Blood Moor Map cleared and Athena got to level 8 (approx. 8.5) and I made her a 2nd Booster in her boots. Hopefully the next map regeneration will give me loads of Skeletons, Zombies and an XP shrine for better levelling. I doubt if I'll get lucky with a house so close to town but as it is random it may happen.

[EDIT 2] Blood Moor run 2: New Blood Moor Map The map regeneration gave me quite a few Zombies but a lack of Skeletons, too many Quill Rats and no XP Shrine so Athena only gained another 2 levels. She had a nice fight with a Dumb Pecker which became a Dead Pecker. Table edited above.

Blood Moor run 3: The 3rd run on Blood Moor saw Athena get her first Elixir from a unique Zombie, "Gloom Burn". Also got an Experience Shrine but as she had already cleared about half of the monsters when she found it and I am still playing at Players 1 for safety, she still only gained just over 1 level this run. I may up the players setting next run.

Blood Moor run 4: Upped the players setting to a whopping 2 :P and got an XP Shrine. Still only managed two more levels (currently 13) and got the runes (Nef, Ith) and 2 socketed gloves to make a pair of "Mist" at level 15 which is the next goal. Nothing else to report.

5th run Blood Moor & 1st Cold Plains: Still running with p1 for safety. Nothing special. Just my Rogue died thanks to Champion Pecker at start of Cold Plains. Had to ressurect her for about 7,5k :x . Gained 2 levels and about half. Found XP Shrine in Cold Plains but about 2/3 of map was cleared. I did 2nd Booster runeword:

A little further update...

I have probably run the blood moore 4 times, I cleared the den of Evil on players4, that was going to be hard until I could one hit kill returned.

decided it was time to go to players 6, Went and took out the cold Plains for 2 levels, then took out the burial grounds for another. Blood Raven was quoted as saying "My army will destroy you, AAHHHHHHHH!" Yeah... she lasted about 2 seconds. I love being on higher players counts, because you get some really nice drops. Found my first elixhir from some random unique monster. Possibly a couple more charms that I could put a booster runeword into (or maybe just tir runes?)

Cool. Great job, guys. Looks like I'm going to have a bunch of catching up to do on Saturday. :D We've already got someone at level 27. Nice! 8-O
