RE: heRO's 10th Anniversary celebrations

PVP For Items ~ heRO 10th Anniversary Version


Date: Wednesday 14, 2015 at 10:15 PM server time (15 Minutes After WoE ends)

How this event works:

- All participating players will be warped to a battle arena.

- The GM will announce an item (or wear it if it's a headgear), and open a 3-person chat room.

- The players that want the announced item must enter the chat room quickly.

- The first two players that join the chat will fight each other, and the winner will receive the item.

- Once a player has won three fight, they cannot participate until the event has ended.

- There will be a mass PVP at the end, with a prize for the last player standing.

- There will be a participation prize at the end.

Rules:

- Everyone above level 90 is welcome to join.

- Outside buffs (Those from anyone other than yourself) are not allowed.

- Only the two players in the arena are allowed to battle. Fighting in the public is not allowed.

- The time limit for one fight is 3 minutes. In the eventuality of a tie, the announced item is skipped and announced again later. Both players may participate in other fights.

- Sending a trade, party, guild invite or friend request to the opponent will result in an immediate disqualification. To prevent this, use /noask.

- Dropping items while in a fight is forbidden.

- If a stalker loses a plagiarized skill, they can ask a GM to copy it again.

- GM Resurrection will be provided after the match has ended, do not respawn. If you happen to respawn, please PM a GM for recall.

- If you Disconnect during a match, PM a GM if you want to be warped back.

- This is a fight. You must put forth effort and continue to battle at all times. Do not run around like a pansy. If you're going to run around, don't come.

  • MVP Carded Gear
  • Ghostring Carded Gear, Ghostring Scrolls, and Deviling Carded Gear
  • God Items (Brisingamen, Sleipnir, Mjolnir, Meginjard)
  • Yggdrasil Berries

RE: heRO's 10th Anniversary celebrations

People's skill and power (or lack thereof) being dependent on certain items is not our problem. If you do join, know you will be on a more equal footing against others.

RE: heRO's 10th Anniversary celebrations

I can beat your entire guild without any of those items, talk about lack of power all you want.
I won't be coming, you won't need to ban MP and white potions /gg

RE: heRO's 10th Anniversary celebrations

Assuming I banned the items merely because of the possibility of your presence shows an unhealthy arrogance. I would suggest you see a professional to help you deal with whatever issues you may be having that cause you to act this way.

I would say it's a shame you couldn't join, but I honestly don't care much if you participate or not.

Thank you GM-Ciar for transforming a bunch of people as a mini event. We're all enjoying playing around with our new forms~

(Or being chased by the real one!)

RE: heRO's 10th Anniversary celebrations

Yep, just did a disguise event where people were transformed into monsters, then turned on PVP in izlude for people to fight! It was fun to see OYJ disguised as a Kafra, asura'ing everyone. :P

Also, tomorrow (Sunday October 11th 2015), I will be hosting a Trivia at around 9:00 PM server time! Make sure to join!

The rules are simple:
  • I will ask a RO/heRO-related question through broadcast.
  • Players must answer through #Main.
  • The first person to answer correctly wins a prize.
  • Abbreviations and the like count as a wrong answer.
    (Example: What MVP is found in Glast Heim?
    Person A: DL! - Wrong Answer
    Person B: Dark lord - Correct answer)
  • Do not spam. Also, if a question contains several answers, please answer it all in one line, do not spam the main chat with an answer divided in several lines of text.

I look forward to seeing everyone join!
