1v1 Tournament 14th January - The Red Eclipse (EU) 7pm GMT
Just when you thought opening random packs had maxed out your thrill levels The Ultimate Regstar Championship is back with an Ultimate RNG Championship special!
URC 8 was the pinnacle in rule refinement over a 2 year period resulting in the most balanced tournament we've seen to date. This one is going to be an absolute clown fiesta! Due to the thrilling changes to gear and class balance, it's now pretty much impossible so we're going to embrace the thrilling hunt and drop most of the rules! I recommend you have a read through them before signing up.
It's still going to be first come first served (with plenty of space for standby players) but please understand that we want to make this the best tournament possible so some places may be jiggled around but I will do my best to keep the first signups in place. If I get 40 mercs and 54 operatives signing up then I'm going to cap the number of entries for those classes but I'm hoping we'll see some diversity in the class distribution and I'm thrilled about seeing who hunts for spots!
For prizes we have a bunch of cartel coins up for grabs courtesy the lovely people at bioware, we also have a load of random prizes and the winners will not be receiving a set reward - instead, we're going to thrill them with random prizes from our prize pool.
If people have any credits / cartel things they'd like to donate please let me know in game - any donations for prizes would be greatly appreciated and recognised during the broadcast.
If you're looking to see what the events are like we have links here. These are abridged events made by the amazingly talented Skyrush and even if you aren't taking part I strongly suggest you check his youtube channel out:

The tournament will be held in the Nar Shadda stronghold. I understand the LOS isn't perfect, I understand leap doesn't work perfectly, take the issue up with bioware. This also means that there will be a gear disparity between combatants. Guys this is a feature to make the duels extra thrilling! Will skill triumph over gear? Thrilling!
The format will be completely open. No brackets for ranged / melee / stealth. The only rule for the stealth classes is no starting in stealth for the stealth vs stealth duels seeing as they now have a passive +20 levels and no one would ever find each other. OPERATIVES CANNOT OUT OF COMBAT HEAL AND ARE ALLOWED ONE VANISH PER ROUND - I have to keep this rule to prevent another 30-minute healing fiesta.
I'll probably introduce some rules for future tournaments but I'm looking forward to an old fashioned throw down between all the classes for a change.
PLEASE BEAR IN MIND ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE: THIS IS THE BEST IDEA I HAVE RIGHT NOW IF SOMETHING ELSE POPS UP THAT IS MORE ELEGANT I WILL CHANGE THIS.
32 spots are available for now, we'll do our best to accommodate everyone but we reserve the right to make some adjustments to the format if necessary.
