The Entropia Universe World Boxing Championships are back again for 2010, bigger and better than ever!

Once again the competition is officially sponsored by FPC, who have provided some great prizes for us to give away – and not just to the winners this time!

This year for the first time there’s also an opportunity for societies to compete against each other to see which has the greatest boxing prowess. And for the ubers we’ve got the new Super Heavyweight class to show us who’s the absolute top dog in EU boxing!

As always, EUWBC is free to enter, and with six different competitions for various skill levels, there’s something for everyone.

Read on to find out more about the tournament and how to take part!


Prizes

Contestants will be divided into six Weight Classes, based on their current Health (see below). The six winners will be declared EU World Boxing Champion 2010 for their class, and all of the finalists will win prizes.

First Prizes

Unlimited Loughlin Smacker Two
Sponsored by FPC
Valkyrie Mk.1 (L)
Sponsored by EntropiaPlanets
Personalised Forum Signature
Sponsored by Globex Designs, Inc.

Each of the winners will receive an unlimited Loughlin Smacker Two. This is a great eco weapon for powerfist skilling or for using as a finisher. The Smacker Two is worth 1864 PED in TT value alone.

See Entropedia for all the stats on this item: http://www.entropiawiki.com/Info.aspx?chart=Weapon&name=Loughlin_Smacker_Two

They’ll also win a Valkyrie Mk1 (L) provided by EntropiaPlanets.

And to commemorate their victory, the champions will receive a personalised forum signature, specially created for them by Globex Designs.

Here’s an example of last year’s design:

Second Prizes

Genesis Power Claw Mk.6 (L)
Sponsored by FPC
EntropiaPlanets Premium Membership
Sponsored by EntropiaPlanets

The runner-up in each class will receive a Genesis Power Claw Mk.6 (L), the most powerful (L) fist in EU and one which is very rarely seen.

Entropedia link: http://www.entropiawiki.com/Info.aspx?chart=Weapon&name=Genesis_Power_Claw_Mk.6_(L)

The losing finalists will also receive 6 months of premium subscription to EntropiaPlanets.


Weight Classes

Entrants will be split into weight classes depending on their Health:

  • Flyweight: Up to 110 Health
  • Lightweight: 111-130 Health
  • Welterweight: 131-150 Health
  • Middleweight: 151-180 Health
  • Heavyweight: 181-220 Health
  • Super Heavyweight: 221 Health or above

Competitors will be required to prove their current Health at a ‘weigh-in’ by taking a screenshot prior to each match, clearly showing their current Health. This screenshot must be posted here or sent to the judge privately following the match.

Super Heavyweight and Welterweight competitors are not required to provide a screenshot (except in the case of an ‘over-weight’ Welterweight player – see below). Welterweights will be scanned to determine their Health.

Players’ Health is likely to increase during the course of the tournament, so players will be allowed to play ‘over-weight’ by up to 3 Health points, as long as they start the tournament in the correct weight class. There is no penalty for being ‘under-weight’. If you think you are likely to go ‘over-weight’ by more than 3 points, you should enter the higher weight class.

Example: Cassius joins the Welterweight class and starts the tournament with 147 Health. By the semi-final he has reached 152 Health and is allowed to compete as an ‘over-weight’ player. But by the final he has 154 Health and is disqualified – he should have entered the Middleweight class!​

If there are fewer than 8 entrants in any single weight class, then the competition for that weight class will be cancelled.


Registration

Entry to this event is free! All you need to do is register here on the forum.

Just post here, giving your full avatar name and the weight class you want to enter. Please also give the name of your society, if you are a member of one.

If you have a friend who wants to enter but does not have a forum account, you can post on their behalf. As I will not be able to contact them via the forum, I’ll need an e-mail address, which should be sent to me in a PM – please don’t post e-mail addresses in the thread!

Registration is open now and will remain open until 15 September. Entries posted after 15 September will not be accepted.

IMPORTANT!

On 13 September I will contact all registered entrants to ask them to confirm that they will be taking part in the event. If I do not receive a reply by 17 September you will not be allowed to take part. If you know that you will be unable to reply to me during this time (e.g. if you will be away with no forum/e-mail access) please let me know in advance and I will discuss this with you individually.


Tournament Schedule

On 18 September the event launch party will be held, during which the first round draw will be revealed. Contestants don’t have to attend but I hope you’ll all come along and find out who your first opponent will be. Those who are not taking part in the event are of course also welcome to attend.

First round matches will be held on 25 & 26 September. We will aim to complete as many matches as possible over this weekend.

Each match will be arranged individually in order to set a time convenient for both fighters. Entrants are expected to show a reasonable amount of flexibility when arranging matches, and to maintain communication with me, responding to messages in a timely manner. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.

In short – I’ll try to be flexible and I expect you to do the same. If you take the piss, you’re out. Any competitor who fails to show up for a scheduled fight without warning or explanation may be disqualified.

Because of the ad hoc nature of the match arrangements, it’s impossible for me to give a more detailed schedule at this point. I hope to be able to hold the final matches on 16 October, but this is subject to change.


Society Championship

This year we introduce the first ever EUWBC Society Championship! Individual fighters will score points for their society, which will be totalled over the course of the tournament to produce the Society Championship table.

Any society with at least 3 members entering the tourmanent will be entered into the Society Championship.

Each competing member will score points as follows:

  • 3 points will be awarded for each round won by knockout
  • 2 points will be awarded for each round won on points
  • 1 point will be deducted for each round lost
  • 1 point will be awarded for winning a match

The society with the most points will receive a custom-made virtual commemorative plaque created by Globex Designs, Inc. This is a graphic file that you can display on your society’s website, use as a sig, or upload to signs and screens within EU – it’s ideal for a 4:1 X-Lite sign.


Match Rules

1.The tournament follows a knockout format, with the first ties decided by random draw. The draw will also determine the subsequent ties (the winner of Match A fights the winner of Match B, etc).

2. Dates and venues for matches will be announced on the forums and communicated privately to contestants.

3. Depending on the number of entrants in each class, some fighters may have to play an extra preliminary round. The random draw will decide which entrants will have to fight in preliminaries. 2009 champions will be excluded from the draw and will therefore not have to play a preliminary match.

4. With the exception of the finals and semi-finals, matches consist of up to 5 rounds, each lasting 3 minutes.

5. If one player dies within 3 minutes, his opponent is awarded a win by knockout for the round. If both fighters are still alive at the end of the round, the player with the highest proportion of health remaining (as determined by the judge by looking at the player’s on-screen health bars) will be awarded a win on points.

6. Any player leaving the ring during a round will forfeit the round to their opponent.

7. The winner of the match is the first player to win 3 rounds.

8. The semi-final matches in each class will consist of up to 9 rounds of 3 minutes, with the winner being the first fighter to win 5 rounds.

9. The final matches in each class will consist of up to 15 rounds of 3 minutes, with the winner being the first fighter to win 8 rounds.

10. Armour or healing is not allowed during a round. Players may of course heal between rounds.

11. The only weapon allowed is the Castorian EnKnuckles-A (TT Powerfist), except in the Super Heavyweight class. Super Heavyweight contestants must use the Loughlin Smacker One (limited or unlimited).

12. Weapon Enhancers of any kind are strictly forbidden.

13. Excessive jumping is not allowed. If the judge feels that a contestant is jumping excessively (as a guideline, if you are jumping more than punching, that’s excessive) they will receive a warning in local chat. If the player continues to jump excessively, they will forfeit the round to their opponent.

14. Competitors are expected to show respect to their opponent and the tournament by:

  • turning up to matches as arranged, on time;
  • maintaining a reasonable level of communication with the organisers so that matches can be arranged effectively;
  • demonstrating a reasonable amount of flexibility in arranging matches.

Failure to do so may result in rounds or matches being forfeited, at the discretion of the judge.

15. In case of any dispute, the judge’s decision is final. We reserve the right to disqualify any entrant in the event of suspected or proven cheating or foul play.


Spectators

Spectators are welcome and encouraged to come along, cheer on their friends, and enjoy the boxing. Please stay well clear of the ring entrance while a fight is taking place. Under no circumstances should a spectator enter the ring.


Thanks…

Many thanks to our sponsors for supporting this event. Additional thanks to Globex for the event banners and artwork. And very special thanks to those who took part in and supported the previous EUWBC tournaments – I hope you’ll be back again this time!


And Finally…

If you have any questions please post them here.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL FIGHTERS!​

Yep we're giving away a lot of stuff here, not just the prizes that FPC have kindly supplied but also some from other players :)

I think the answer to that question should be obvious :laugh:

Thanks for being the first to join, Jenny :) I imagine there will be a few more today so I'll save updating the list of entrants until later or tomorrow.

Damn can something be worked out here I hope? I am in Iraq atm and I won't be home till 27-28 Sep. I want to avenge my loss to Beechbum last year but if I can't be allowed as a late entry I won't be able to compete this year :(

I will even take fights from competitors that lost in the 1st round, kind of like a double elimination for them kind of idea? I am reaching here not sure if anything can be worked out :(

Current HP are 179.5

A couple of comments, I had a quick read over the tournament structure (correct me if I'm wrong), and it seems to be the same knockout method as last year. How are you going to determine the runner up? Because this this structure, the person who gets knocked out in the final match for their class isn't necessarily second place. Are there going to be bonus matches, or...?

Looking forward to participating, awesome job running this Oleg. Though as per last year, I know living in New Zealand will give me a severe disadvantage.

The first matches will take place on 25 September but that doesn't mean that everyone has to fight on 25 September. As I said in the original post, the matches will be arranged as appropriate depending on availability of the participants.

In other words, holding your first match after 27 Sep is not a problem, please go ahead and enter the tournament.

The runner-up is the losing finalist. You are right that this doesn't necessarily mean that they are the second best boxer, but it's a knockout tournament and therefore the luck of the draw is a factor.

The alternative is for everyone to fight everyone else in some sort of league, which would mean that, if we had the same number of entrants as last year, we would have to have 2351 matches - which clearly isn't going to happen.

I realise that things might be more difficult for those of you who live in NZ/Aus/East Asia but with the flexible system for arranging matches there's no reason why there should be any disadvantage as long as you are not personally very restricted in the times you can compete.

Cool TY Oleg

Brent Wildman Lancing
umm Middleweight 179.7 might be Heavyweight by the time it starts I will update post as soon as health changes to be sure to be in the right bracket. I will post a dated screen shot if I remain Middleweight.
Alpha WildD3amons

I might be off line mid Sep due to moving back to USA but on our about 27 Sep I will be back on line and home so please consider this as my confirmation. Unless I am not back on line by the time round 2 starts then I must forfeit.

Again TY Oleg for being flexible this is a fun event. It might get some air time on AHR also as I will have the Mic Saturdays 18-21:00.

You might be better off entering the Heavyweight with that HP but you can change your mind later as long as I know before 17 September.

I'll make a note that you may not be able to confirm your participation at the specified time, and you won't be disqualified for not doing so - however if you are able to confirm your registration after I contact you on the 13th then please do so, it will make my life easier if you can :)

Oh ok, hope I get lucky. :D


By disadvantage I meant due to server lag - which of course there is nothing you can do about.

I've seen videos of fights I have done and the video shows something completely different from what was on my screen. You kind of just have to guess where the opponent is. Heh. :p
