    GL with your tourny bullyfoot

  • Can we broadcast them and let people watch each match?

  • Sovereign.1093Sovereign.1093 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Excited to watch =)

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

  • absolutely broadcast it, highly encouraged

    King Bullyfoot

  • all holds barred, may the best build win

    King Bullyfoot

  • interference will not be tolerated and you must be in the arena, not the stands

    King Bullyfoot

  • DemonSeed.3528DemonSeed.3528 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Whoever is gonna be broadcasting please let us know too, I wanna watch.

  • Why not just delay it until Anet gets their instanced GvG or whatever running. People are gonna end up fighting in the 1x1 guild halls abusing 500 damage per hit retal, 600 damage per hit Loss Aversions, and other janky pve balance.

  • Sovereign.1093Sovereign.1093 Member ✭✭✭✭

    dont delay, gvg needs supporting by player activity

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

  • Twitch.tv/GregorPayne if any guilds want a streamer.

    Also I'll play for any guild cuz there's no roster limit teehee.

    cause counting on anet to provide support for GvG anytime in the near future is doubtful, especially since they havent in the last 5 years

  • Wow, BullyFoot, great job! Keep it up! Proud of you! :D And may the best guild win! :D

  • Caliburn.1845Caliburn.1845 Member ✭✭✭

    Couple questions.

    Mounts allowed in GH?
    PVE downstate skill allowed in GH?
    Are individual players allowed to play for different guilds(IE ringers)?
    Is pre-buffing allowed(Even to the extent of having a pit-crew of players outside the 15 in the GvG stacking boons on the 15 players)?
    Can guilds/players donate additional gold/mats to the prize pool?
    Can the brackets be constructed so that the top team in the losers bracket gets a shot at the top team in the winners bracket(Traditional tourny style to prevent the two top teams from meeting early in the bracket and never getting a chance to see each other again)?

    No mounts
    Once person is downed, they cannot be re rezed until match is over
    As long as there representing the guild, that's fine, at the end, they can only be in 1 guild, I'm not going to track everyone who tries to join multiples. But its very discouraged
    Pre Buffing is allowed only by the 15 in the squad, not by outside sources, this would be considered cheating and will get you disqualified
    Sure, just know its non refundable and added to the pot
    Yes, its a double elimination

    Core builds only? Or does this include HoT/PoF elites?

    This isn't what he's asking. In PvE there's a 5th downstate skill that's unlockable through Living Story that passively life steals when you attack and when used applies unblockable Agony, Confusion, Cripple, Blind and Torment in a huge radius.

    As long as both parties understand fighting at the GH and the ramifications behind it, it is there choice. I understand Wvw stats and Pve stats differ especially in the Guild Hall. But if both parties choose it, well have at it

    King Bullyfoot

  • Alright so another thing I want to make clear is that Guilds will have the choice to fight between OS, EoTM or G hall. We will let the the guilds / guild leaders decide where they want to fight.

    how bout 30 vs 30 or 50 vs 50 or more for the real GvGs
    15 vs 15 seems a bit low....
    that would prevent the veterans to stack on one guild to have the edge then disband afterwards for the Geez

    Why So Serious?

  • The problem is most guilds aren't big enough for that large amount, maybe in the future...

    King Bullyfoot

  • Norbe.7630Norbe.7630 Member ✭✭✭

    most guilds on the pve/pvx division are 300+ members
    pvp guilds more or less 20s members
    active wvw guilds have an average of 30 members online for a raid

    oh well, goodluck with the tourney, hope it comes to life

    GvG has been 15v15 since the beginning of GW2, sometimes occasionally venturing into the 20v20 territory. So if your guild runs bigger than that, feel free to pick out your best 15 players (plus a few subs) and join with them.

    There really aren't enough veterans left to care anymore, most guilds are playing with only a handful of older player and majorly younger players.

    (if you really do want to do bigger numbers there's Server v Server that some servers will occasionally do)

    Anyways, Bully, best of luck!

    GvGs have always been 15vs15 or 20vs20. Right now most guilds or the WvW focuses guilds usually field 15-20. The ones who field more have players who care about GvG and who don’t. So 15vs15 for this tourney is fine. In the future we will consider 20vs20 if this tourney goes successful.

  • Also another news, this tournament is taking place on NA but EU guilds will also be allowed to join if any EU guild is interested in the tourney please whisper me or bully foot

    na beat eu last year. hope eu tries will join.

    Who will be the commentator(s), how will the match be observed? It would be nice to have first person cameras every now and then as opposed to just watching from the sidelines.

    We will have 4 streamers on Twitch during the tournament. I will have the info for you soon on what 4 channels you can watch it from.

  • Nice of you to organize this!! Hope it goes well! 👍

  • Pretty sure this is Season 2????????????? I vaguely remember in S1 that Hymn and GS fought then as per usual in a GvG, one guild got mad and made excuses.

    What's your security to make sure this doesn't re-occur?

  • Until Anet creates an instanced GVG arena or some sort of in game support for this format, I believe Bully is counting on teams to work out some of the details of their matches on their own. So lets try to keep it civil and promote our game mode, not specifically ruin it.

    Most people consider that tourney a joke for the exact reasons you listen, I would hope in terms of helping the scene become active and healthy people could be adults and limit the amount of excuses. Sometimes you just play poorly, sometimes you play exceedingly well. Judging whats happening and fixing it in the heat of the moment is what can make the difference between Good and Great guilds.

    If you feel this tourney is a joke, no problem, don't participate. Comment somewhere else, no one needs your negativity. At the moment we are up to 24 Guilds and waiting for responses from 8 others.

    Nah lmao, if you show up with nothing but Scourges you'll get freaking shrekt.

    15s comp run by guilds who actually GvG is something along the lines of FB/Scg/Rev/SB/- with the final slot being an utility pick (another Rev for a DPS party, another FB for extra sustain, a Scrapper for downstate play and invis counter, a Chrono for boons and veil, a Soulbeast for smoke to blast stealth.

    GvGing actually requires a good comp unlike open field blobbing lol.

    lol naysayers aside, very good job. From my point of view, it's been an utter hassle to get anything organized on a large scale especially with many egos on the line, but fortunately Bully is like, immune, to those issues due being a very magnanimous individual so if anyone was going to get anything going especially in this state of the game, it'd be a good chance it'd be him.

    Best of luck guys, and definitely hope you got someone to stream. I'll probably find some time to spectate.
