Starting Dueling League - Blue/White Gear Only - Add battletag to join

  • #1
    I am starting this thread to create a community of players who would like to duel in only white/blue gear (any Gem quality is allowed). Although we don't know how spikey damage will happen in dueling, maybe the damage reduction of blue gear will make this more of a skill based dueling system.

    If you would like to join this league post your battletag below.

    Really like the idea. DukeNukem#2367. I'm on the Eu server. Let's hope to get this thing going.

    That's one cool idea. I can already see the prices of white and blue items spiking on the AH if this idea works out well :D

    I do think though that allowing any kind of gem will kind of create some unnecessary difference in power. If the purpose is keeping players' power are close to each other, then allowing the new 50 mil gems might create some issues :fret:

    People who can't buy the top notch gems (and can only afford the 150-500k ones) will easily fall behind 100-150 stat (assuming 8-10 slots) points. That's quite a lot of dmg/life.

    Anyways, I'm in. My tag is Nomad#1741 (US).

    I'm EU.

    I suggest 'Star' as a maximum gem lvl.

    nice idea , but i may i suggest something like that you buy gear for all classes lets say 500k per class. and than just give player who will duel the items for there class. (the amount of gold for set can be less ofc.)

    I'm absolutely game for Blue gear pvp. keep the credit cards out!

    I agree with the previous statement about limiting jewel quality.. Star I think is a happy medium too.

    time to start theorycrafting

    If you can raise enough funds, you can also try doing gear "draft" systems. Buy a ton of completely random magic gear from the AH or from donations.

    Before the game starts, you dump piles and piles of blue items onto the ground. When the competitors enter, they each go one at a time and select one item on the ground (10-15 seconds time limit, perhaps), constantly rotating until they're all fully geared.

    Damnit, this is why the 4-player limit per game is so absolutely lame.

    nice idea but in theory its a lot of work in a game that already has poor p2p networking.

    i like the idea of just having a "blue set" in my bank to throw on and fight with. something ive taken the time to collect

    Naked fights would be cool! Also low lvl duels lets say get a character to lvl 9 only found gear can be used :P Could also be fun similar to D2's Ironman duels.

    Related to Jaetch idea, we could start a farm/draft system. Players farm together for 5 min or so, and at the end of the period they start a magic the gathering-style draft. One keeps an object found, and passes the other to the next player and so on until all objects are assigned. Then the duels are based only on the items farmed during the session.
