Hi guys. This is SilverFalco Navean. I volunteered to help Bagel/Mercenary K run the thread during this time when he can't be on as much. I hope you all can bear with me as I figure things out. Please PM me on my account (SilverFalco Navean) if you have any questions for me.
1.) There is no entry fee, and there is no prize for winning. Here we fight for pride, bragging rights, and most of all, for fun!
2.) Please save and host the image of the outfit you wish to be entered on photobucket, tinypic, or similar.
3.) Entries must be made with your own inventory: no tekteks or inventory search!
4.) Regular battles will be 1v1 and the first to 10 votes wins. Screenshots and/or text copies of wins are appreciated.
4.) In the event of a "tie" (no one posted proof of a win), the match is extended by 5 votes (i.e. to 15, 20, etc.) until a winner is decided.
6.) The winner gets a W added to their stats, and loser gets an L.
7.) Contestants will be first come first serve.
8.) Non-challenge battles will be determined in the order entries are recieved; there are exceptions, in the case of people asking to be or not to be matched up against someone specifically, or in the case that I decide certain avatars match up better visually, thematically, or otherwise. 9.) Entries will be accepted up to 10 upcoming battles, at which point entries will be CLOSED until we have 3 or fewer battles on deck. This is to avoid backups.
10.) Please also QUOTE NAVEAN OR MYSELF when you submit or risk being ignored. 11.) You may have no more than TWO avatars waiting for battles, and you may submit no more than ONE avatar at a time.
You can (and it's encouraged) to challenge others to battle:
1.) You may challenge anyone you like; a thread regular, a friend from another forum, or even a random person whose avatars you admire!
2.) You must issue the challenge in the thread and QUOTE the other person, stating your intent on challenging them; your opponent must accept your challenge in order for the battle to begin.
3.) If your opponent does not respond/does not wish to battle you, please don't pester them about it.
4.) You and your opponent may decide, if you wish, upon certain rules of the battle, i.e. both avatars must use x item, or which avatar has the better background, theme, etc.
5.) For fun, at the end of a challenge battle, the winner may ask for the loser to provide a link to their enviro so that the winner can create an avatar that the loser must wear for a brief time.
After every battle, the mercenaries' names and stats will be recorded.
The stats will include the numbers of wins, losses, and winning percentage (after 10 battles).
Anyone who battles will be recorded! Click the banner to check the Rankings!
