    Default Arena comes to rift finally!!!!

    Hey guys,

    I just want to announce that we are canceling the tournament on May 18th and 19th. We are instating player ran arenas instead.

    I. How does it work?

    5 players will register to be part of a team (you have to make a team name). You then are paired up against other teams close to your rating. Anyone can register a 5 man at any time!

    II. How are rating calculated?

    When a team is first created, it will have "0" rating. If you beat a higher or equal rated team, you get 10 points, and that team loses 10 points (you cannot get below a "0" for your rating). If you beat a team with a lower rating, you get 5 points and that team loses 5 points. Also, ratings are attached to the team, not the player. So if a player leaves a team, they get the rating of the new team they join.

    III. How do you determine who wins or lose a match?

    This is a 5v5 death match. If you wipe a team completely, you get 1 point. At the end of the match, the player with the most points win. If there is a tie, no points are award and none are taken away. There will be no sudden death round. Because this is a 5 v 5 death match, you cannot run back if you die. Battle rez are allowed. You can battle rez as much as you want.

    III. How are matches set up?

    We will have a website dedicated to pairing people. Our current plans are to have 1 match per day. We may do more matches per day if arenas take off. Basically we will match teams by ratings and availability.

    IV. Can players switch teams?

    Yes, players can switch teams. However, if a player joins a team, they cannot join another team for 1 week from the date they have joined a team.

    V. When does it start?

    May 5th will be our first match.

    VI. How can the tournament be watched?

    The matches will be streamed and archived on our website.

    V. What is this website and what kind of information will be on it?

    We will announce the website prior to the first match. The website will have a schedule to provide information on which team is playing each other and on what date. It will also keep track of the team ratings. It will also stream and archive matches.

    VI. How do I register?

    Post your team here. We will register you. After the site is up, however, teams will have to register on the website for themselves.

    VII. Is anything currently ban?

    Yes, we are not using wrathful exuberance at the moment until it is looked at. Everything else is fair game.

    Gladiators get a special pat in the back from me. Go team! J/K we will come up with something as a prize for the winning team by the end of a "season."

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    My "S" key is bound to an ability, and so are my "A" & "D" keys, sorry to disappoint.

    I've seen all these so called arena players though that do backpedal and keyboard turn, someone on the forums even defended this kind of play style. Bads will be bads.

    Inb4 Trion adds to the TOS:

    Player formed Arenas are against the rules, doing so, the involved players will be banned.
    See you all in Wildstar!

    I have to admit, It would be hilarious to get 1 shot by 5 sent healers.

    Start registering your teams here guys so we can form up. Since we will all start at 0 during the first week, I do not have a problem pairing you up with someone you enjoy playing against so long as they are ok with it.
