[DOA] PvP Challenge!

What's going on?

This is a 2v2v2 battle royale. Three teams enter the Blood Moor and just one leaves.
Teams can consist of previously built characters or new ones can be made to combat the new threat of a large brawl.

Who's involved?
Three teams, six players.
Team Delta- Doomas & Sablast
Team Omega- kabal & denton
Team Alpha- Liquid_Evil & Zhao_Yue

The first letter of each team spelled out a keen, DOA, dead or alive, acronym. Twist of fate or just badass coincidence?

How do you win?
Each team signifies readiness in a cleared Blood Moor. A battle proceeds. Each character kill is recorded and one point is awarded for each. First team to 15 points, wins. We rinse and repeat the fighting until a team breaks the magic 15 mark. (This is to force play and keep defensive strategies limited)

The points are simple. They are based on the "xxx was slain by xxx" messages. A point goes to the team that kills the opponent. As soon as a team has won (all four opponents are dead), the match is over and points will stop being awarded until the start of the next match. All players get to heal and get ready for the next bout.

What are the rules?
We fight in Hell. Standard BM rules apply.
No potions, mercs, wells, or shrines.
No recasting Cyclone and Bone Armor.
No minions that cannot be summoned in town with the exception of Decoy.
No Holy Freeze, Decrepify, or Bone Prison.
No mass slow (>10%), no mass poison from items (>200), no mass replenish (>25).
No curse charges. Chance to cast is acceptable.
No overabsorb. Limit 2 items per element with the standard ban on Rising Sun and Black Oak.
Currently, kabal is scheduled to host. If we can find a neutral guy on the U.S. east coast with an awesome connection, that could work too.

When's this going down?
Saturday, October 21, 2006. Actual time to be worked out among players.
No postpones. If a player doesn't show, his team duels without him.

What's at stake?
Honor and dignity I suppose. Perhaps some new avatars for the losers? You can help us decide if you have a superb and deliciously humiliating idea for the four non-winners to do.
