The dudes at crawl.akrasiac.org have announced a public tournament to take place during the month of August! It is time to prove your dungeon crawling skills against talented crawlers from all around the world!
Hello everyone! With help from a cast of characters always growing and always awesome, I’m putting together the first Crawl tournament in the style of various nethack tournaments, including the /dev/null network tournament and Eidolos’s June tournaments. Here are the basics:
* You play as many games as you want for the entirety of August.
* Wins get you meta-points, especially for the fastest or first or streaks.
* High scores in race/class combinations get you meta-points, especially if you have the most of them.
* Getting runes and killing uniques also get you meta-points, so you don’t need to be a Crawl Champion to get your name up on the scoreboard.
* Clans of six players or less are encouraged and clans have their own special additional meta-points to determine which clan wins.
* There should be at least one server in the US and at least one in Europe; if you’re interested in hosting a server, please send me email.
You don’t need to do anything to sign up other than play on CAO. When there is specific information about the exact start/end times, specific information about clan memberships, and a webpage with the current status of “Who’s winning each prize?,” I’ll post again. If it tempts you at all, there will be actual, physical, you-not-your-character can touch them prizes. 🙂
The tournament has started, you are still on time to get in! Go to Crawl at akrasiac.org
Also, join roguetemple’s clan and fight for glory and fame!
