Top of the World, Ma - PvP Tournament

I'm on Top of the World, Ma PvP Tournament


Roll up, roll up to the biggest, bestest, badest tourney since ... the last one. 😁

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the Liq has handed over hosting of the next PvP Propagander ... Extravaganza to someone with l337 dueling skills. Unfortunately, they ran quicker than me, so I'm doing it.

The Idea
Why do we duel? To prove we have the bestest character in all the world. So may I introduce to you the Top of the World Tourney.

Each dueler will be fighting for their continent. To prove their part of the globe rules in the wonderfully wild world of PvP.

The Challenges
This will be in two stages.

Stage One
The first stage will be open to anyone who wants to join.
Each competitor can have a maximum of four duels; their two top scores ONLY will count toward their Stage One score. However, the two extra duels are there to give everyone a chance to improve their score and eliminate a bad battle.
** The exact number of duels will be finalized when I know how many are taking part. **

Stage One Point Scoring
Opponents signifies readiness in a cleared Blood Moor. Someone signals go. A battle proceeds. Each matchup will consist of six rounds only; hosting should change at round three.
Six battles take place against each opponent and points are awarded for the following:
1 point for each kill
-1 point for being killed
-1 point for not being hostile 😁
1 point for completing all six battles against a specific opponent

ONE OFF ADDITIONS
At the end of the stage one bouts, the following points are available:
1 point for fighting the maximum number of counting bouts (this is only added once not once per bout!)
1 point for competing 'out of your home continent' IE being a mercenary and yes this is to try and get more people in the australia/asia team. I really don't want a US v The Rest bout.
** I will drop this if everyone decides to fight for the opposition or if there are enough for each continent **

Example:
Teagan v Maria
Teagan wins two rounds, Maria wins four rounds.
Teagans' score is (2 - 4) + 1 = -1
Maria's score is (4 - 2) + 1 = 3
Both opponents have the possibility of adding one further point for completing two counting matches

with only the top scorer in each continent going through the to Grande Finale.

Grand Finale
The creme of Europe, Americas and Australia/Asia go through.
Each opponent will duel the best from the other continent 1v1.

Grand Finale Point Scoring
Opponents signifies readiness in a cleared Blood Moor. Someone signals go. A battle proceeds. Each matchup will consist of ten rounds only; hosting should change at round five.
Ten battles take place against each opponent and points are awarded for the following:
1 point for each kill
-1 point for being killed
-1 point for not being hostile
1 point for completing all ten battles against a specific opponent

ONE OFF ADDITIONS
2 points for fighting both opponents

How do you win?
Knockout stages: Get the most points
Grande Finale: Get the most points

The top scorer will be crowned Top of the World!

*cue footbal chant* Loooooooooooooosers! *end football chant*
Apart from being *pointed* and *laughed* at .... The losers in the Grande Finale have to wear avatars along with the two least scoring duellers in the Knockout stages. The avatars will be worn for seven days. By playing in this tournament, you agree to this. Avatars will be availble after the duelling has completed.
