1m budget PVP tournaments !

  • #1
    So yeah, I was thinking about how will I have fun with duels when they come out. Because there probably wont be any kind of matchmaking with any kind of ranking or gear check AND its probably gonna be 1v1 and no way to 2v2 or do FFA. You guys know blizz.

    So the only things I can do with the flawed duel system in diablo 3, since there no game servers and the chat pretty much empty, are the following:

    -Forums tournaments, where I will be destroyed without mercy by 5000$ characters.
    -Duel all of my friends until it gets boring.
    -Join random games and try to duel noobs, will also get boring very fast.
    -Iron mans (not sure if it can be any fun in d3 since there no stats allocation or skill choice)

    thats pretty much it. Then I got an awesome idea, I thought to myself, wich way I could do tournaments where it could be fair and would requires as much skills as possible. This is when I got this idea, but kinda need your help to figure it out. Here how it works

    Everyone have 1 hour to spend 1 million gold on the auction house to build up their characters, then duel to the death in a serie of 1v1s. It sounds like fun, imo, not only people have to use their skills in game to duel, but their shopping skills and overall knowledge of diablo 3 items and builds ! many rules and constraints like barb only, a smaller/bigger budget, may apply.

    Anyone think its a good idea ? there could be prizes and stuff like that, would be a lot of fun. Just gotta find good rules and prevent cheating (screenshot of auction log for example) If I want to do this on a bigger scale than between my close friends.

    Pretty cool idea.

    The people fighting it out would have to post screenshots of the stuff they bought (in the thread). I'd happily have a "low budget" (not that my current gear sets are worth more than 5-10 mil each) gear set just to take part in these and have some fun :P

    I'm sure some will frown upon having to "play the AH" for this (a lot of people don't like it). The 1 hour limitation seems pretty good.

    Yeah well, with one hour you dont really have time to ''play the AH'' trying to find gg deal since you have like 12 items to fill under an hour, using the auction house is only a way to find items with the stats that fit your gameplay, being good at playing with the auction will help, but what will be more crucial is wich items and skills you decide to use. Your overall knowledge of your character skills and items stats, mixed with your ingame fighting skills is what will make you win, not finding great deals on the auction house. (anyway, unless you get lucky, finding great deals on the auction house usually takes way more than an hour per item).

    The only way someone can cheat is by putting a gg item at low price on the auction house and buy it with another account, but this is risky and time consuming, plus I'm thinking of a way to avoid this kind of cheating, like to not allow people to buy 1d11h items, not sure how I could verify that though.
