I would like to suggest that this tourney be broken down and have qualifiers on Saturday. A best of 3 drinking contest is going to take a LONG time. The sword tourney for a familiar drew over 300 people which means 9 rounds. I approximate that a best of 3 drinking round will take between 45 -60 minutes (this may be slightly high but not much). So using the lower estimate and only 8 rounds (below 256 people) the tourney will take 6 hours.

That is a very long time.

I would suggest qualifiers of 8 people, done at the same time on saturday. This would simulate the first 4 rounds of the big tourney. I think two 3-4 hour sessions is much better than one 6-8 hour tourney.

I know this would require more work, but I think trying to do it in one shot is too much. And I wouldn't want the tourney to be decided by people having to log off after 5 hours of the contest.

I think that's why it's scheduled for 9AM PST on a Sunday morning. They expect it to take all day.

So this is more of a marathon than anything? The winner might be the one who can stay online for the duration of the event.

Splitting over two days just means another batch of people that can't make the tournament, and books up both days of a weekend instead of just one.

It's not compulsory to take part if you can't find the time. Although I agree it's going to be a hell of a marathon....

PS. WOOT!

I would think that if there were an entry fee then the number of entrants would be reduced. A 1,000 PoE entry fee would sound good to me.

I'm sure it would, but part of the fun is that everyone can enter!

I'll be wearing the critter on me shoulder until it be time to give the poor fellow over (been very sad without a right proper name, I assure you!) I've gone through many a kleenex so far.

He's a bit orangish in color.

Well they did do a blue parrot for the last one. Why not a blue monkey? I remember the old story Akebia used to tell me of her Gleep, but that's the only time I ever heard of one and never saw one. I'd like to see one.

The gods up on high didn't enjoy the monkeys that were breeding with unnatural colors, so they were selected out of the genepool. So farewell to the blue and pink monkeys, we will always miss you.

The gods are fickle and can always change their minds. I would think that you, a member of the Pink Army, would be campaigning for such a return to the old colors.

Excellent. (The kraken over in Legendary Recipes already had a name, didn't realize it was common practice to have the winner name it.)

Well, common practice to have the owner name it.

Hence (for instance) Silverdawg's (I think) monkey familiar was Bubbles, back on Azure.
