    Seth, if you want to, I'd love if you could make a narrative for this.

    Also, Tolvo, yes I would like if we could get an advertisement in the Resource thread. Which reminds me, that I need to make a few advertisements in the General section and PVP section soon.

    Being the CoF, I assume you would like something comical and otherwise "brony-like"? silly

    Well, the CoF Lore is about Ponies going to Lordran to spread their Ideals around . 
    It could lead to some hilarious or dark situations .
    Anything would suffice pony01 .

    Though i would prefer something humorous

    Still, I cannot keep sugar coating this for you guys....

    This event is an interesting idea, one of the manliest fist fights in Lordran with little to no Poise, but there are already many problems with it.


    1. You are forced to use only one weapon. While I understand why you decided to use only one particular weapon, I cannot however overlook this lack of variety. One of the greatest things in the Souls series combat is the moveset of the weapon, using the same moveset a thousand of times against a million challengers will only increase in lacking variety.


    2. Armor restrictions. I understand that you wanted to go with little to no Poise at all, but still, by only allowing gloves and leggings, you also make the event even more lacking in variety. Not only will you have little to no defenses, but there won't be even any variety in your clothing because of the Poise limit.


    3. Ring restriction. I actually liked that idea of you using the Dusk Crown Ring, it made the event more challenging, but now I can't say the same. Now we can't even use the other ring slot, which would make this event without variety at all, instead of a change every few matches we have to deal with the same and boring fight repeated a hundred times, with rings instead things could have a sparkle of excitement: What if your opponent is using RTSR and you must get him before he gets you? What if your FoP Ring manages to make you withstand a few blows? It would certainly add some variety to the event.


    Summed up, this event is too restrictive to the participants, I think you should modify the rules in my opinion, or add a higher SL limit so we can use other fist weapons.

    Also some backstory:

    During the initial siege of the Ponies in Lordran, Twilight Sparkle discovered a place where all kind of poisons and diseases existed: Blighttown.
    Determined to stop the spreading of misery and suffering in an already god-hard-to-live place, Twilight killed a Sealer and stole her magic managed to convince a Sealer to give her her healing magic and robes. Twilight however could not cure the swamp without eliminating its ruler: A giant spider chick. Twilight then sent Spike to convince the hot spider to leave the swamp because of course Spike gets stuck will all the stupid ****. 


    Spike then managed to convince the sexy spider chick to leave the swamp alone, however Twilight then realized that Blighttown wasn't the only problem: Beneath the surface there was an unearthly realm of chaos filled with demons. Twilight then understood that she had to destroy the heart of the demons: The Bed of Chaos, in order to finally cure the goddamn Valley of Defilement. However while attempting to reason with a giant creature that looked glitched, Twilight met Mike Tyson who revealed that HE was the one who did all the bad mojo in Dark Souls, like corrupting Artorias and making Sif fight you, because Mike Tyson is in reality......


    THE FURTIVE PYGMY!!!


    Twilight and Mike were then about to have the deadliest and most awesome battle ever seen in the history of anime, Twilight quickly readied her Helmets of Armory and Mike readied his double barreled shotgun with the best ammunition in the world: FISTS. However, just as the battle was about to start, Mike said:
    "Yo man you cannot fight me with dat **** crown! Get some gloves or something and man up!"


    And since Twilight was no boxing expert, and Spike was busy tending to the Fair Lady while wearing an armor full of thorns, Twilight decided to call all her allies, the ones most proficient at fist fighting and martial arts, in order to defeat the wretched tyrant that ruled Lordran.

    I don't think you understand the Idea behind this Event . The restricitons are the reason to participate . 

    A little History about this Event .

    My original Idea for this Event was to just use the Bare Fist just like in a Box Fight . 
    In a Box Fight you don't Roll around and wear Helmets or a Shirt . 

    I came up with all these ridiculous Damage Boosts like the Calamity Ring, Thorn Gauntlets, Power Within and the Dusk Crown Ring so that the Fights won't last too long .
    That's why i didn't want to use any other Rings like FaP or Wolf . 

    People didn't like that Idea so we decided to use unupgraded Caestus .

    More Fist Weapons, i could see that happen .

    No Claws however since they have the Bleed Effect and that would break this Event since you cannot roll .
    I wouldn't mind allowing the DBS but how do we balance it with the Caestus along with the low Health ?

    Yeah, you have some points, but I was just showing you that this event doesn't have much variety meaning that many people will get bored eventually.

    Well, it fits something as random as Human-Pony Abominations that try to spread their Ideals in a f*cked up place like Lordran by having a Fist Fighting Tournament .

    We all have ideas and suggestions. Some are good, some not, and sometimes we may not know until we try. Sometimes those offering suggestions are not on the same "conceptual" page as the originator...so to speak.

    Marino, your event idea is a good one.

    After wards you will know even better and with hard data in-hand in which direction you might want to go next time.

    Res your suggestions are good, don't get me wrong. biggrin  But trying to "remake" the event the way you feel it should be is not the way to go...really. I am sure Marino has taken all of your suggestions under serious consideration. But he has stated more then once, I believe, that the event will go as posted unless he decides to change something. You have offered your suggestions and that input is appreciated!! And Marino is aware of these suggestions so now it is time to let it rest.

    Who knows Marino may decide to incorporate one of your suggestions at some point. But for now...let it rest. That will bring a much more productive out come for all involved. thumbs up 

    That said...I am looking forward to the FUN that will be had. Memories of my vader fist fight still makes me chuckle.

    Here's my attempt at some backstory/intro (it's a tad long):
     
     Upon their initial adventures into Lordran, Twilight Sparkle and her following of non-vampiric sparkling allies became a vastly-growing covenant in name of their magic... Happiness. The inhabitants of the desolate lands saw warmth and comfort within the eyes of this enigmatic pony, whom after munching on the grass for breakfast, made plans to spread her happiness even further. Above all who welcomed these 4-legged delights to Lordran, were the Exiled of Ariamis... And the cheeky band of the Karmatic Gremlin Gang. Netherless, all of them wanted to see a spread of fun and cheerfulness in their own ways.
     
     However, there are places in Lordran filled with so much hate and despair, that this seemingly polar-opposite magic repelled any and all atempts of kindness and compassion. Twilight recognised Izalith as the cornerstone to this hate and this in turn made her feel like a grumpy pony, so she chewed on some chocolate-flavoured dung pie (which was most delicious) to make herself happy again. To break these barriers of hate and sadness, the cult would have to imbue their own magic into their weaponry and tear apart these walls of violent emotion. Until it dawned on Twilight: killing people is bad, that is not what they want. So with the sheer brilliance that only the Cult of Friendship harbors, a plan was devised and a challenge to be made.
     
     Realising that the Cult of Friendship's magic is still being ridiculed by many defiant creatures, Twilight Sparkle admitted that their magic needed to be tested and proved of its worth to denizens of Lordran. Twilight (via way of the Orange Soapstone) laid out the challenge to every soul to fight in a contest of strength and willpower, blessed by the magic of the cult. They would meet Sparkle and all other participants at the ruins of the demons, where reside The Ceaseless Discharge, one of the most hateful creatures in Lordran. This would be a series of 1on1 matches in a showcase of respect for one's opponant and friendship to one-another. Ceaseless and his stumpy legs wouldn't be able to stop the display, since his phobia of grey things prevents him. Twilight thought to herself that this sheer display of the polar-opposite, would make the Ceaseless Discharge cringe and thus, reduce his defences to the CoF's almighty love machines. In doing this, Ceaseless may become human again... Or even a brony himself! The thought of this prospect made Twilight salivate with joy, to the point she began skipping on her walk. If they could bring down and reform the Ceaseless Discharge with this kind of magic, then the souls of Lordran, as well as Twilight's allies, would recognise their skill and power equal and beyond their own.
     
     "Who doesn't love love? Who doesn't love ponies? Lordran will become a happier place all the same. Chocolate dung pies for everyone!... Now where am I going to get chocolate?"
     
     And so the challenge was laid out and Twilight Sparkle awaits the response. Many good times were to be had, memories made and love shared. Indeed, there would be no end to this lovefest... Plus, everyone loves chocolate.

    Grin, I just realized that our event date/time over-lap. Out of respect for your event and the Cult of Friendship I will change my event date to Sunday, Sept. 15 (9am PDT) which should be fine. (1am UTC=1am GMT= 9am PDT). biggrin

    Alright thanks, Ahho. Next time we host an event I'll make sure it doesn't overlap any other events that the Exiled are hosting.
