[Nabi] Aikido World Championship 2013


Hello everybody!

We are happy to welcome you at the greatest event of the passing year!


The year of 2013 which brought us a variety of great events is coming to an end but there's still something special we have been keeping in our secret labs.

An event that is rather short yet superior to anything else that you've ever seen in Toribash.



Why are we so sure about that?

The Aikido World Championship has outstanding prizes, uses one of the most beloved mods of Toribash and is determined to make you feel nervous as if you were at a real martial arts championship.

Aikido World Championship lasts for one day only.
No more months-lasting events that make you bored a week after their beginning!


During that day, a number of knockout tournaments will be hosted where everyone will be allowed to try their best and make an attempt to win.
Winners of these tournaments will be gathered once all knockouts are over and will duel to death.

Sounds intriguing? Then here are all the details.


How it will run

On December 28th, Saturday, a room called "nabiaikido" will be set up.
UPDATE: don't spam connects after the tourney has started, you won't be able to enter. Wait until the next tourney starts
UPDATE 2: Rooms aren't lagging anymore, correct room names are broadcasted some minutes before each tournament start

Once it is set at midnight (0 GMT), a non-stop marathon of 16 knockout tournaments held in aikido.tbm will be hosted which will last for 12 hours
Times may vary depending on knockout tournaments' length


After that, at 5 PM (0 GMT), we'll pass on to the next championship phase which consists of a number of duels.

Here participants will be put in a ladder and fight until there are only 4 players left.
(Access to these rooms will be restricted but all matches will be streamed at our twitch channel (will be announced a bit later) so don't worry!)

The final of Aikido World Championship is the all against all stage.
4 remaining players will face each other in first-to-3 duels.
This will last for as long as it takes for these die-hards to smash every last joint out of their opponents.

The player with the best Win/Loss ratio will become the honourable Aikido World Championship 2013 Victor.

Ha, anyways question to all, if I live in Texas, what time would I get on? Since I'm so terrible with gmt's.
Seems that Nabi is stepping it up quite a bit! I'll make sure my coffeemaker is primed and i have plenty of caffeine to stay up and alert =). This is going to be quite a nailbiter
For timezones, you should just put the gmt and then when they should be at

ie:

GMT:

-5:00 -------> 7:00pm

or something like that, because some countries have a wide range of timezones and may differ heavily in their times. (take russia for example, not all sectors share 1 timezone)

No participation fee?
...
Awesome, $1,000!
And by "Custom-named color set of your choice", do you mean we pick an existing color
and have it named just for us, or do we pick a custom color?
The past makes you wanna die out of regret, and future makes you depressed out of anxiety. So by elimination, the present is likely the happiest time.
