    This sounds like a ton of fun, I wish I had seen it earlier, but I would definitely like in the second event. I have no idea what name I will have for the toon I make to compete, but just go by XooleX for now (that's my main). Thanks

    Thank you, Ytteri and others for helping me test out the capture the flag areas.

    These two arenas ~ Quickfoot and Menechtarun do feature water and a bit more climbing.

    Using the x key (Fawn hot keyed quest experience to another key to suit her key mapping),
    the scoreboard comes up.

    Kills function much the same as in the Stash which is the arena we used Saturday.
    That makes these area very much usable in the future.

    In the capture the flag, one cannot turn in the flag unless the other flag is not in the possession
    of your opponent. If an opponent carrying a flag is killed then the flag drops on the spot.
    The score shows who turned in flags.

    So really there is a lot of potential here.

    I did not test the pit again, but last testing indicated that low level toons could not enter it.

    Regarding our limitation on Characters that the character generator calls Casters,
    I have right now a toon that is level 4 Sorcerer with Maximized, Empowered, and Toughness.

    She has the spell scorching ray with does 70 ish damage for a cost of 48 sp.
    The spell has a cooldown apparently of 1 second.
    She has a total of 465 spell points, which will be restored to full as soon as she respawns.
    She has a total of 68 hit points.
    She is Vet straight off the boat with starter gear.

    We will ponder this a bit, but at first glance the decision to limit caster levels
    was probably a wise one.

    Indeed, 70s a shot with a SP bar the re-gen every 2 second is a bit OP. Will still have to talk about it + the new arenas. woot

    Nods happily.

    Just checked Jolly Roger bomb from the Cove ~ min level 5
    and Greater Vials of Sea Fog ~ min level 5.

    I am pretty much going to say that Career participants in the hunger games
    would have access to things like Cookies so I am not in favor of banning them.

    If we do add in a weekly training match similar to the big event in every way
    but with less prize support that would spread out the cookie use more as well.

    Hi Fawn,

    Would like to start by saying you and hossa made a great thing happen.
    I do however think that the cookie issue deserves another deliberation.

    Cookies are way overpowered for level 4 and allthough they are in limited supply they are usually never used except for very special occasions. Can't think of a much more special occasion then an event that happens once in two weeks and has prestige and prizes on the line. That being said you can be certain that if they are allowed people will use them if they have them. Ofcourse not everyone has them and so people that have none will be faced with an overwhelming disadventage.

    Now lets talk about how big an adventage the cookies carry:
    5 abishai cookies: The important buffs last for 10 minutes which is the time frame of an entire round.
    BLUR: is huge especially when the successful use of a tactic can pretty much mean you die unless your opponent missed you due to blur.
    ABISHAI DESTROYER: Again this lasts for 10 minutes +2 hit/damage/ac and +4 to mind attributes. Very big deal considering it's for 10 minutes.

    Titan and hezrou cookie, combined together this is an added 10 str. This is big even for level 25, at level 4 it's huge. +5 to land trips and stunning blow and +5 to resist trip not to mention the +7 or 8 to damage on a two hander. These have a "short" duration but even that is 10% of the duration of a round and ofcourse you can eat them just b4 engaging someone or when someone is closing in on you in order to make best use out of it.

    AOE cookies: Consider this scenario, a person gets ahead on the kill count due to the use of other cookies then bunkers up at a spot with only one way in and puts up a blade barrier cookie whenever his oppenet gets near. The blade barrier will do about 30-40 to 60-80 on a failed save. passing through it twice (entering and exiting) will do double that which will leave a level 4 toon with gear at about 30% health if they make the saves or dead if they don't.
    Meteor swarm cookies can easily take out a level 4 toon outright, disintegrate will as well on a failed save. Ice storm will be prety nasty as well even with cold resist.

    Cookies just take out the skill and build choise out of the equation especially in advanced rounds where you are less likely to be ganged up on.

    Keeping up the rules shouldn't be too difficult. AOE spells have no buisness on a level 4 battlefield unless it's grease or a hosts creation and so it pretty much stands out further more if you are hit by an aoe it will show in your combat log. Blur is easy to see and unless the toon has a caster level or umd they shouldn't have it. And no one should have a blur with duration greater then 3 minutes (scroll duration).

    That's my rather long, 2 cents. And as someone who participated in the first event I can say that IMO the games would be far less competitive and fun with an excessive use of cookies.

    Regardless of your decision I will be more then happy to participate in future events and when ever RL permits (8 p.m. eastern is the middle of the night for me) I will be sure to be there!

    Thanks again and may indeed the odds be ever in your favor

    Ok here is my perspective on COOKIES.

    Watching for cookie use, figuring out who cast the cookies,
    worrying about cookie use all during the week, and eventually
    having to make a judgment call when one party claims a cookie
    was used and another party denies it.


    All these things would greatly decrease MY and Fawn's happiness
    in this event. Decreasing happiness equals decreased desire to
    host the event.

    In real life I have had to deal and diffuse confrontations so much,
    I became skilled at it. I have judged at gaming conventions and
    been complimented.

    However due to long term circumstances that no longer exist,
    I do not like situations of that nature.



    My take on Cookies allowed in the games.

    There is no where in DDO where cookies are much use till this.

    The Hunger Games were never fair, outside help often intervened.
    The whole plot of the trilogy is that the odds were never in her favor,
    yet she won anyway.

    Weekly matches leading up to the big match on the 2nd Saterday,
    will provide more cookie free tournaments.

    Increasing the Semi Finals to 20 minutes would make cookies
    somewhat less potent.

    Increasing the Final to 30 minutes would make cookies
    somewhat less potent.


    I noticed in the final event that towards the end, you seemed to
    begin to regain an advantage but time ran out. Consider what might
    have happened had the event ran twice as long?

    So folks, go chat your friends up and see how many cookies you can bargain off of them.

    I understand and respect your opinions and thank you for addressing my suggestion.
    As I said, I would love to attend these events regardless of the usage of cookies. Let the good times roll!

    I think I will sign up for the August event because I have IRL plans for July 13. I have no idea what build I will use but I'll make 1 I think is nice.
    How many AP may we spend? If we train after leaving the boat we can get 16 but if we don't we only have 12. Is there an official ruling?

    The only restriction on action points is that your character is no higher than level 4.
    Is that clear?

    So you could create an Iconic, and only take the first four levels.

    You could create a vet, then go run stealthy till you are xp capped.

    You may bring a level one toon to the event, but you would have to find a way to enter IQ
    as the min level for IQ entry is 4 (Fawn is sneaky).

    You could create a vet and not level up any.

    Concerning house J / house P / airship buffs.

    As long as you don't have elemental resists these are legal.
    If you accidently click on an elemental resist please use /death to remove it.

    Is this unfair?
    Well the Hunger Game participants had various levels of support.

    If you manage to keep your ship buffs for 2 minutes in this event
    and maintain a decent kill count then you are a far better player than I am.

    as his input is very important.

    I have the build and made the toon but I'd like to keep the name secret as ddocrafting.info can still look them up.
