10th ANNUAL LUX CASTLE TOURNAMENT

--> LIVE SCOREBOARD

The annual Lux Castle Tournament carries forward a tradition of excellence now reaching a full decade.

Players are divided into six teams. Every game includes one player from each team. Teamwork and camaraderie are the way to win! Each player is required to play a minimum number of games during the month. Penalties will incur if players do not meet the minimum number of games.

We come together with celebration of Lux's castle themed maps. From the dawns of feudal civilization through the dark ages and into the light of Castle fervor.

Tournament Outline

Regular Games

The tournament will be played in one or two day blocks. For most blocks, only one map will be played. Maps may or may not get their own block in the tournament, time depending. The end of the tournament will have blocks of winners' picks once everyone has familiarized themselves with the maps. All blocks will be scored to determine each team's seed.

Finals

The top 3 seeds will advanced to the finals. The finals will consist of multiple days of 2v2v2 games. All points earned in the tournament in regular will be carried over.

Scoring will be done the same. However, now each team will now have two members in each game and thus two scores. This will give the 2nd and 3rd seeds a chance to prove their mettle and overtake the 1st seed. Although a daunting lead by the 1st seed team will prove difficult to surpass.

The games will be played in the winners' pick style. The initial pick will be done by the 1st seed. The settings for each map will be those used throughout the tournament thus far.

Maps

Ladies and gentleman boys and girls!

Welcome to the 10th Annual Castle tournament!

Games will be played, blood will be shed, castles will be burned, flooded, blown, purpled, avalanched, destroyed, knocked down, rebuilt, and destroyed all over again. There will be fear but there will be no fearfing. People will have problems with E4. We will fight, we will die, we will be reborn to fight again. There will be trades, there will be late signups, there will be schedules adjusted to accommodate as many players as possible.

The teams listed above feel as balanced as we (The Mods) could get them. We understand that not every player is exactly where they want to be, but we have done our best to put all players on their requested team. If there is a case where players want to trade, it it perfectly acceptable as long as it is a trade (one player from one team traded in exchange for a second player on a second team).

In addition to trades, we still encourage all players to recruit! The more players we have, the easier it will be to have full house games. We do anticipate additional players requesting to join and will add them to teams either at midpoint or as fillers to help round out shorthanded teams.

The schedule is still incomplete but dustin has indicated that the first games will be THIS THURSDAY FEBRUARY 4th. dustin will announce the start and end times soon along with which map he will host.

Please, provide feedback, request changes, suggest start times, ask for ways you can help. This is a community effort for the players BY the players. Nothing posted above is set in stone nor written in blood, it is merely the best the current Mods could assemble.

So please, get out your trebuchet, battering rams, flaming arrows, hurricanes, lucky dice, catapults, and cannons, and lets destroy some castles!

BANE

roll call time!

all BANE team members must pm me in 72 hours so we can figure out our schedules & see which players can play at what times.
Also who in the F is Squoooooooshy? They have played exactly 0 games of online lux.
Given my past with Baden I seriously question the wisdom of the mods of putting us on the same team together
Welcome back to the flock of BANE there Owned.


Anyone who doesn't reply by Friday will be thrown from the ramparts of Bane's hightest castle tower into the moat of acid!

I note that all the other teams have a Mod at the bottom of the list whereas we have Kitty on Catnip.

Maybe they think we dont need moderation or else we are beyond redemption, i dont know which.

If team captains have agreed upon a trade, they both must PM me or post here verifying the trade, and I will adjust the rosters.

Likewise, BANE is an idea, not something made up of silly matter.

Ummm I hate to tell you this... but everything that is on Earth was made in the Firey cauldron of stars. Respect for Air, especially the hydrogen parts of it. You're oldschool too. :panic: This dude going around high-fiving air is the closest smiley to a fistbump for air.

There the team rooster for Castle Bane has been updated to reflect the new team. All former occupants have been tossed from the Spiked Spire of Bane's ramparts into the acidic moat below for failing to PM their team capt. BEFORE the deadline. That said I will now take any & all qualified applicants on to team BANE. Please PM or contact the Capt. of Team BANE for further details.

Did Pars officially make team dungeon? If not I need to pm or email a few banned players real fast ;)
Where is JerryT when you need him?

Kingdom Water has sailed and heads to the battle area, bad weather and rough seas just inflate our chest. Giant waves crash onto the decks, and while the storm rages, we pledge allegiance and kill the other realms.

Oh Kingdom water, thank you for the energy and power that you have given us, we will honor you, drowning the other castles.


Go water, drown them!
