    Default PactGaming Launch Party Tournament Event

    PactGaming Launch Party Tournament Event-tourney.png


    Hey everyone! Firstly just to introduce us - PactGaming will be coming back (we were there for a short period prior) to Rift. Previously we just simply played as a Casual Guild, but recently went through some fantastic changes to bring us into the Competitive world and are Relaunching our website, as well our Guild in 11 total games.

    We open the website to the public on 6/30/14. (hopefully.)

    To celebrate, we are holding our Launch Party on 7/12/14 - from 10:00am - 8:00pm CST. We will be holding Tournaments through the day on multiple MMORPG's.

    For Rift | We are playing with the mechanics right now to determine exactly how we want the structure to go, but it looks like it will be a Single elimination match of 1v1 to make a clear winner. (if you have valid objections please let us know - and changes can be made aslong as players come into view to allow a larger roster.)

    Goals roster: 16.

    Rules and Restrictions are pretty standard but we will make them clear momentarily as we finalize the structure.

    If you are defeated once, there is no second chance. Single Match, Elimination - really simple.

    Winner of this ENTRY LEVEL TOURNAMENT will receive:

    1. Small Premium Currency Reward. (Amount listed soon)
    2. PactGaming.com Launch Party T-shirt.
    3. Direct Entry to a Rank II Tournament
    --
    If Registered to PactGaming.com|
    4. 500 Pact Points.
    5. Launch Party Drink Coaster (For those Beer Night events, yo!)
    ---
    Note: RANK II, and RANK III Tournaments all include a Cash Prize pool. This is a Rank I tournament, thus no Cash Prize pool.

    Shard: Seastone (PvP)

    You may register Here before the Site launches. Simply post you're interested and Roster will be updated, and be displayed in my signature, or on the thread.

    Just a heads up, their is an imbalance between souls when considering 1v1 only.

    Welcome none the less.

    Any recommendation on "bannable" souls?

    The potential for stalemates is ridiculously high.

    Might as well ban all pure healing souls. But then imbalance comes into when play you consider what DPS/hybrids get pull off not being pure healers while getting good heals. I think that is where people feel imbalance comes into play. Like a 61sin has a small heal they can pop for 4k hp. A 61inq can basically (with a CD reset) give themselves a full heal. Two specs slated to be 61 dps specs. The inq is ranged, the sin is melee. Some people find this to be imbalance too. It's hard to know where to draw the line of imbalance at (banning any dps soul is silly, they all die).

    I just think the banning of heal souls seems worth it. But in Rifts case, it usually turns into some hybrid vs a hyrid that takes forever because they both went as defensive and heal capable as possible without being actual healers and actually having damaging abilities.

    Yeah, the main problem you're going to encounter is that the game isn't really balanced around 1v1 scenarios. It's only around 3v3 and above that you start seeing some aspects of balance.

    You could probably get enough people involved for a 3v3. That at least would encourage those who aren't well versed in BiS 1v1 souls

    Lmfao. okay okay, we understand - After checking some stuff out in game I deff see the debating process leaning towards Unblanaced.

    So, We will alter it to a 3v3, 1 healer per group.

    this makes 18 total players, 6 teams. Updating Information now.
