    And interesting spin to our normal Deathmatch-style competitions. Dunno if I can make it, but I look forward to seeing how this one pans out!

    The arena is finished, I hoped to have it bigger, but the item limit is really severe. Still, I think that some 'duels' will last long time, so the sudden death (i.e. no combat allowed, poor race) will be activated afer 5 minutes.

    Just for the clarification... you are not allowed to jump on or over stone walls. Jumping from the bleacher area to the throne is not allowed! If you fall outside of the arena, you need to run through the maze again.

    Yes, very good video work Arianna!

    Also, this event proved to be very entertaining. I'd like to see something like this happen again.

    There were several breaches of rules and etiquette during the Obstacle Tournament

    1) Jacob Canaan - Using exploits
    Jacob Canaan broke the rules and lost a match (minutes 27-32 in the video).
    He used an exploit in the next match (e.g. 37:00 and 37:15), unfortunately I did not noticed it. I want to apologize to Glinda theGoodWitch again for missing this. I have also noticed this in the next match however (42:20). Even though I have not explicitly banned exploits, I made it clear I have the final word. I have decided that the match will be repeated but the use of bugs will not be allowed (50:00+). Yet Jacob exploited again (1:01:36). And on top of that he attacked Athanil (1:01:19), which caused Athanil to trigger autoattack and then complained for being attacked. We cannot tolerate such poor sportsmanship during our events. Therefore Jacob Canaan will not be allowed to enter our next event (Ranged Tournament 3.0). He is still allowed to attend as a spectator but he should be advised that we expect him to behave nicely. Let this be warning for others too, we wish for fair fights and good fun. We do not want to see people who cheat and break the game or the rules.


    2) Jacob Canaan - Chat spam and abuse
    Jacob used 'mature' language on several occasions and was rather offensive. I asked Jacob to stop (1:09:37), I should have asked him to do so much sooner though. I should have banned him from the event then, yet I did not. This was a breach of good manners and etiquette. Those are important during events. We were considering banning him from attending the next event, however we should have acted there and then. Therefore for this time, we will only warn him to behave nicely. We will watch him closely and if he starts ruining the fun of others, he will be banned.


    3) Themo Lock - attacked Jacob
    At 1:10:20, Themo attacks Jacob. I clearly stated in the rules I do not want this. Especially during competition, I am busy, I do not want to have people fighting. And this really did not help to calm the situation either. It would have been different if Themo asked us and we let him get me rid of Jacob, but he did not. We cannot have people escalating things on their own. Yet to be fair, we should have banned Jacob well before Themo attacked, and when he did, we supported him. We are learning from our mistakes and we cannot ban Themo for doing our job for us. This leads us to another warning, please do not attack people on your own. You can defend yourself, you can defend your friends, but do not start the fights on your own.
    As I cannot watch for everything, we have appointed Gaelis Trajan to the position of the Chief of Security. If someone is causing trouble, she will be the one authorizing use of lethal force (should I be too lenient or not paying attention).

    Let this be a lesson for all, that we will do our best to keep our events fun. But if you cause trouble, you may be forcibly removed.
