PvE Tournament: The Legends of Dalaran.
Edited by Lothloryen on 2014-06-08 17:24:42
Hello Citizens of Dalaran,
In the taverns all across Azeroth a song can be heard, one song played by the bards, yet no one remembers the first one to sing it. It is heard around all over the place, but everyone knows the truth, it is an echo of our citizens, inside our memory, it will be spread in times of joy and fear. It is a Legend but there is nothing that proves it, and Legends may be forgotten or changed so the song will change too. We need to do something to keep the Legend alive, to remember each name and each feat, and this is how it is born: The Legends of Dalaran.
All of us will remember some names, some families, famous for their strength, their passion or their victories, the truth will be constant for a while, but with time will only last as a rumor. The brotherhoods change and their leadership too; everyone is a storyteller with some dwarfish beer in their hand, but in Dalaran, there will be a special book. A magic book like our kingdom, where all those who made the bards sing, who destroyed all the enemies and were known for their bravery and power, will forever remain as Legends and be remembered with eternal glory.
Our enemies are well known, every one of us knows how to deal with their threat, how to silence them week after week, but now everyone has the opportunity to show the rest why they are Legends and the rest only mere soldiers. To become a Legend you will need to fight against your enemies but also compete with your partners, the rest of the citizens of Dalaran.
When the battle is big, the reward has to even be bigger. So your name will be remembered through generations in our world, Azeroth's winds will whisper to the rest when you are close to them who are you, and what you did. The fame will surround you, not only by your titles, but also by your feats.
If you want to become a Legend, to never be forgotten and always be known by everyone in Dalaran, where the children invent tales of your feats, where the ladies blush in your presence and the knights bow before you, this is your call.
The Priests will bless your fate, the Mages will conjure your dreams, the Warlocks will slay your nightmares, the Paladins will grant you their light, the Rogues will murder your enemies, the Shamans will call the elements to your presence, the Warriors will respect your bravery, the Druids will whisper your history to the elders, the Death-Knights will plague your opponents and the Hunters will tame the wild for you. You will be known as the best of your era, and maybe of the rest of generations that you live with us.
The books of our magical Kingdom of Dalaran are waiting to be written by you, our Legend.
We are delighted to announce our plans to host a unique event that has never been seen in the history of Private Servers â€“ A constant and progressive PvE Tournament: The Legends of Dalaran.
From the beginning we have been searching for Legends who can achieve the impossible, and we tried to bring the attention of all the players we could, even before Dalaran-Wow was released. Now that we are known as dedicated, persistent and devoted people to our server and to our citizens, we can proudly host one of the most epic tournaments.
On Dalaran, not only the Realm Firsts that players have achieved will last, because there will also be Legends around, people known as the best. Eternal glory in our Kingdom awaits for you, and believe us when we say that the race will not be just based on luck. Your dedication, teamwork and partnership, must be better than the rest if you want to have any chance.
We are currently searching for the Legends of Obsidian Sanctum, Legends of Eye of Eternity and Legends of Naxxramas, but we will be searching for more in the future. Each of the eras will await for their heroes, and after that, they will await for their Legends.
The idea was originally born of a suggestion from our Staff Member: Averdoom, and of a suggestion from the player Tygra on the forums, about a possible guild race.
After a long period of thinking about possible structures, performances and so on (always keeping our ideals and thoughts), Legends of Dalaran will come true and shall be considered one of the great highlights from our server.
This tournament will be hosted on our realm Algalon, it will not be game-breaking, and each and every one of the participants will have their reward.
What do we plan to achieve with this?
- To increase the competitive spirit among the players.
- To bring the â€œhero feelingâ€ to our players and to spread the competition to possible new players to come.
- To be the one and unique private server with such tournaments.
- To gain international and competitive PvE reference.
- To become the heart and exclusive home of the PvE players.
- To bring the most deep PvE experience in the private servers.
- To have a centralized, unified and active community.
- To bring a challenge to experienced players.
- To advertise the server and to spread our quality around, in order to increase our popularity and grow as a unit.
- To give fame and reputation to our players and guilds towards the World of Warcraft community.
The PvE tournaments will consist of two different races and they will be present separately on both 10 and 25 modes.
1) First challenge - Speed Race.
Week 1: Archavon and Eye of Eternity (the timer of both encounters will merge).
Week 2: The Obsidian Sanctum.
Week 3: Naxxramas.
Every week, the guild which has the worst timer will be disqualified for the speed race and the rest of the guilds will be rewarded with an amount of points based on their timing.
Once the Speed Race is over, the Achievement race will take place.
2) On the second challenge, the guilds will have to accomplish a list of achievements (that we will provide) on the raids. Each of the achievements will have a specific point value and even if them do not pop due a previous obtainment, it has to be clearly seen how the players develop the proper strategy to achieve them.
The guild having more points between both of the challenges, will be proclaimed the winner.
The website will have a special section for the tournaments (updated each week), and of course the winners will be given the advertisement and fame they deserve.
How can you participate?
- The Guild Master or one of the Officers must register their guild to the tournament. The registration for the Speed Run Tournament will be opened on 6th June (Friday).
**Note: Only those guilds who can have at least one player streaming via Twitch all the encounter will be eligible to participate on the tournament.
We will explain everything with further details once we publish during the next week all the conditions, the table with the speed and achievement points value, rewards, rules, guidelines and so on.
If you want to become a Legend of Dalaran, this Tournament is for you.

Well good idea to keep the community interested in this content, but I would like some things to be clarified though.
How will the encounters be timed? Start to finish, so moment you start trash in VoA - demise of Malygos or the summary of the boss encounters only. Is only one 10-man team allowed to compete for the title per guild? And when would week one actually take place?

as Zyonize stated, I feel we should see the rules of these challanges (or atleast the 1st stage) before guilds get to decide whether they attend this event or not.
Props up for the activity, let's see how the community reacts.

I don't really see the point of disqualifying guilds on stage 1, especially if you put the quickest runs first. It means 10sec can disqualify you straight from the 1st week.
It also depends on the number of groups that join. if 10 groups join, you're removing 33% by the 3rd week.
I think only the final total timer should count, which will determine the winner anyway. It would give equal chances to everyone, and keep even the people a little behind on the first week to continue playing the challenge.
