PostSubject: The Great Ankh New Race - Episode II   Wed Feb 04, 2015 8:21 am

Announcing the great Ankh New Character Race!

Several guildies have asked if we can do another of the new character races again since everyone enjoyed the last one so much. So I've been mulling over how to do this to make it even more better and exciting than the last one while also making sure that everyone has an equal chance at winning.

So here is what we're going to do:

On race day you will show up with an empty character slot to make a brand new character. I will announce the race and class that everyone shall create. Everyone that races will have the same race and class to make it equal across the board.

After everyone has created their new character and finished the intro mission, we shall gather at an announced waypoint in the map. It is there that the fun shall begin. You will run this race with ONLY the starter armor and weapon. You may NOT go to your bank, have someone send you stuff, or run the race with anything other than the starter equipment. You may however, equip any drops you get while running the race course.

Next, you will be assigned a teammate to run the race with. Notice I said "assigned". No, you don't get to pick your teammate and practice with them in advance or anything like that. You'll be teamed up right before the race begins. You'll party up with your teammate to start the race.

After all the teams have been assigned, the race will begin. You'll be given the first checkpoint to make it to. Again, notice I said "first" because this race will be comprised of several legs through Tyria.

At the first checkpoint a judge will be there and once he or she has confirmed that BOTH team members are at the checkpoint, you'll be given the next checkpoint. BOTH team members have to make it to the checkpoint. If your teammate gets ambushed by a herd of nasty killer rabbits along the way then you'll just have to head back and rez them. If you both die after being attacked by viscous saber toothed frogs then you'll have to revive at the nearest wp and take off again. So I would advise you to grab waypoints along the way.

As each checkpoint is reached, the Judge at the next waypoint will tag up to show you where to go. The path you take to get to the next checkpoint is entirely up to you and your teammate. This race is as much about teamwork as it is speed. Remember that you will be crossing maps so if you do NOT see the Judge tagged up in that map then you'll have to party with the Judge so you can switch instances. If the Judge does not see you both then you will not be given the next checkpoint!

The first team (yes team, both of you have to finish it) to get to the final checkpoint will be declared the winners.

So what will you win? Here are the prizes:

1st Place: both team members will receive 5 Black Lion Keys each
2nd Place: both team members will receive 3 Black Lion Keys each
3rd Place: both team members will receive 1 Black Lion Key each

Everyone who completes the race will also win 5 gold. I'll be broke when it's done but it will be worth it to watch a whole herd of Ankhies run across Tyria.

As usual, trying to figure out a time for an event like this is a royal pain because of the difference in time zones. I know I'm not going to please everyone with this but we're going to run the race at 6pm eastern time on Sat, Mar 14th. That will make it 3pm for our friends on the west coast, 11pm for Neil and Dukesy (I hope you guys can stay up that late on a Sat night) and 9am Sunday morning for Scott and Plum (yeah, Plum is gonna beat me for getting her out of bed that early on a Sunday morning - if she even decides to race lol).

I would also advise y'all NOT to plan on doing Teq that evening as we may not be done by then.

I will announce the race, class, and starting waypoint 30 minutes before race time so you can create your character and finish the starter area.

That means you have several weeks to come up with an empty character slot between now and race day if you don't already have one.

As usual, reply to this thread with any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions for the race. Also feel free to let us know if you're planning on racing or if you would like to be one of the waypoint judges.

Myron

PS I will give a consolation prize to the poor sucker, err, I mean lucky guildie, who gets teamed with Strix. We know how she gets lost easily...

I get off work at 5pm on Saturday, and it takes me about an hour to get home. Looks like I'll have a little race of my own against the clock so I can get here in time!

I can be a WP judge, if you still need one. Smile Otherwise, I'll definitely be a spectator.

We're getting close to race day! Woot! I'll be working on laying out the course this week and getting the way point judges set up. And sure thing Zeph, you can be a judge.

So the times are Eastern Daylight time now? That would make it 10pm those in the British Isles and 8 am for the Aussies, if Myron had the correct time zones to start with. Twisted Evil

ROFL ... Cameo, I don't know what I'd do without you to keep me straight.

*whispers Berune* Send her to make you a sammich or something so she'll leave me alone!

Yes, these are Eastern DAYLIGHT times now... so 6pm EDT, 3pm PDT, 10pm for Neil & Dukesy, and 8am Sun morning for Plum & Scott *falls out laughing at the idea of Plum being up at 8am on a Sunday morning*

Woot! Let's get ready to do this!

Thank you very much to Myron and the Officers for putting this event together. It's so much fun and I love participating in it. Never have I looked at every enemy with so much fear and panic lolz. It was totally worth the early start :-)
