February 9th WPG Pet Level 25 Themed Competition

Postby Thralla » January 4th, 2013, 10:45 am

February 9th WPG Pet Level 25 Themed Competition

You are invited to join us on the evening of February 9th when we celebrate both the Lunar Festival and Love Is In the Air with a mostly for fun Pet Level 25 Themed Competition.

When: February 9th. 7:30 pm server time

Where: Location to be announced.

What: Pet Level 25 Themed Competitions

Elune Adore: Celebrate the Lunar Festival by battling with Level 25 pets that are associated in some fashion with the moon or the festival. This includes pets from zones containing the word “moon” in their title, pets associated with the festival, including several pets that come under the heading of “elder”, and pets that use the ability Moonfire.

Heart Smart Battlers: Celebrate Love Is In the Air by battling with Level 25 pets that are Red or Pink in color.

Tizril has created a lovely spreadsheet (see post below) that will list all the pets for both themes. In picking Red and Pink pets, we tried to steer clear of purplish, brownish and pets that were more orange than red (think fire type pets). If you do believe that a pet is truly red and we left it out, please let us know, but be aware than if a pet isn't listed for this theme competition, it mostly like will turn up in competitions to come. We stretched the theme a little by including Pedlefeet who is not red or pink but associated with the holiday and also Creepy Crate which has a large PINK tongue. = P

How: Register for the theme(s) that most interests you by indicating in this thread which theme(s) you are interested in. Competing requires a registration fee of 50 gold per theme. The gold will go into a pot to be divided amongst the three placing winners. Registration “at the door” (on the same day) so to speak will be 60 gold a theme.*

Please participate on a character that is level 10 that each person might be included in the raid chat.

The Competition: Each person will battle each other competitor in that theme, and winners will be given a point for the match. If there are more than ten competitors in a theme, competitors will be divided out into groups of five or more.

The top three competitors with the most points will win the pot divided on this formula: Third Place x gold; Second Place 2x gold and First Place 3x gold. Also, each winner will receive a pet from Raiding With Leashes as donated by Doobjanka.

For each battle you participate in, both competitors will link their first themed pet to /raid. Using the WoW stop watch on screen, the referee of the match will give the competitors 30 seconds to decide the second themed pet they will use. Another 30 seconds for the third themed pet. Then the opponents will duel.

The winner of the Elune Adore and Heart Smart Battler themes will have a just for fun Battle at the very end.

We would love to have the placing competitors use the battle addon announcer to show off the placing matches if everyone is comfortable downloading the addon. We will most likely not want the addon being utilized during the first matches as there may be more than one match going at a time.

Handling Disputes: As before, please check your opponent’s team for proper level and make up. Screen shot anything that is a discrepancy.

*If you are new to Madoran and feel the 50 gold to be a daunting hurdle, please check in guild chat for ideas on how to raise the gold. Players who play there consistently may be willing to sponsor you. At level ten, mining up several stacks of ore to AH isn't that difficult and will net you xp (you might even find higher level guildies willing to fly you on two seaters). Selling a pet on Madoran’s AH is also something to look into. I’m sure others will have more ideas and/or be willing to help.

Sorry I'm slow >.< Had to shrink these down to fit, so if anyone is having a hard time reading em on their monitor, drop me a line and I can send you a bigger set :)

Heart Smart Battler:

*****PLUS****
Mojo is also allowed in the Heart Smart Battler theme, due to its kissy kissy nature. (Thanks for pointing this out Pandorra!)


*Edit* Anyhoo, here's a link to the spreadsheet on google docs for y'all....

I think Mojo should be included in the Love is in the Air theme.
You've gotta /kiss him, and he loves you!

Besides, who doesn't break out the Mojo on Valentine's Day? :lol:

Lol!

That's a GREAT idea Pandorra.

We will officially add Mojo to the options for the Heart Smart Battlers theme.

Thank you Doob for the generous offer!

I really like the idea of themed battle events. Kudos on putting this together.

Couple of questions...Who do we pay the entry fees to if we register prior to the event, and when do they have to be paid by?

This is such a fun idea. I am not sure If I will have a level 10 by then but I plan to give it my best shot. I made a toon on this server last night in order to join the guild. I also see this as a chance to upgrade some of my pets to blue since I cannot pass a battle pet without throwing down the gauntlet. (on a related note... got a crow and a new firefly from Darkmoon yesterday... both in blue.)

Looking forward to getting to know all you pet lovers better. :)

Duskrider: You can mail the gold to Tizril or Thralla if you would like. You can pay any time, even on that day. Preregistration is mostly for the convenience of organization prior to the event happening.

Thanks for the reply Thralla! I'm officially registering for the Competition then. I will field two teams, one for Elune Adore and one for Heart Smart Battlers. I'll mail over the 100g entry fee to you when I log on tonight.

The competition will be held in Silvermoon's Bazaar a ready made location with reference to the moon and also lots of red. The perfect intersection of the two themes.

Hope your pets are leveled and ready to go. Please register with Tizril or Thralla ahead of time if at all possible.

See you there!

Silvermoon's Bazaar will be a perfect place for this battle. I'm already signed up for the Elune Adore fight. I'd like to join the Heart smart Battle too. I just got a few perfect pets for that fight.

I'll bring my money to the event.

Also, I'd suggest Doob set up a reminder for the guildies.

See ya there.

Maybe the next go 'round I'll join. Haven't gotten around to getting much levels (or gold) into my goblin. Though I may be transferring a higher level over soon, so that would solve my cash issues.

Hiya,

Thanks for this brilliant opportunity! I will be fielding teams for both Heart Smart Battlers and Elune Adore. I'll send the 100 gold tonight when I log in.

I've had a lot of fun choosing and levelling pets for this competition!

See you all tomorrow :)

Hi,

I don't think I found the correct addon to display what's happening in my pet battles. The one I found is called Announcer, but the most recent version is from October 2008. It loaded fine, but I don't know how to make it display pet battle info. Have I got the right one? If so, could somebody help me to get it working, please? If not, could you post the URL for the correct add-on?

Thanks very much!

Its not the correct add on. You need to download the addon "Pet Battle Reporter". It should be up to date and works right out of the box. I can't add the link but just do a search on Curse for that addon and you should find it easily.

Wonderful, thank you! I got it easily from Curse. I can't post the link yet either, but it is easily found by searching "Pet Battle".

***RESULTS*****

We had a great night! Thanks to everyone who came! Docrotten won in both themes, naturally, but graciously bowed out of the prizes.

Elune Adore Results:

Maizoo won with 4 wins, followed by
Grekaya, with 3 wins, and
Taelene with 2

Heart Smart Battlers:

We had a Tie!
Skirr and Grekaya each won 3 duels, followed by
Zulija with 2 wins, and
Ty, with a win and a tie!

That tie, however was against Docrotten, the closest thing to a defeat he had all night, BIG congrats to Ty for that!!!

Hope y'all had fun!
