http://crawl.develz.org/wordpress/0-16-tournament

So the .16 Tournament is starting and I am excited and wanna play but didn't see any Clan threads for it so I thought I'd start one!

Good job getting this rolling. If you set up a clan and want me ( avg player ), I'd be happy to join.

Yeah yeah! This is so exciting! I want in a clan for this! Going to go for no orc/lair banner!

Also, 0.16 is dropping! Time to get on an asshunter!

I'm definitely up for a bit of clannishness, and will refresh on how to set one up.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

I don't know how to set one up, but I'd like to be in a clan if anyone is looking -- pretty mediocre player (~20 wins), but I enjoyed the clan bit last time around if anyone isn't overly interested in performance.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

If anyone has a casual clan with an opening, I'd like to join it. I'll probably only play a few wanderers so I dont get burnt out before csdc happens

Yo, I'm up to join any clan that doesn't have a serious ambition to win. I was part of sic transit gloria sigmundi (#10, woo!) last year, and I didn't look like a total asshole.

I believe so, the rules have a note:
  Code:

Note: clan membership lines can be added to your 0.16 rcfile on any of the public servers. If you add clan membership lines to more than one rcfile, then the rcfile on the server earliest in the list CSZO, CAO, CBRO, CDO, CLN, CPO, CWZ, CXC, LLD will take precedence.


I've created Team Evil (awesome suggestion, edgefigaro) and added the aforementioned players. Made the assumption you'll be playing under the same names (case sensitive!) Let me know, otherwise!

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Suits me, cerealjynx, and the clan name is fine. Been on a Crawl break for a few weeks, so should be full of enthusiasm.

Thanks to OP for picking me up, and I'm excited to start -- hope I don't drag the rest of you down too much in the tourney.

Considering you have 20 times as many wins as I have, I very much doubt it. It's about fun and mutual encouragement anyway, no stress. I got my only win to date right at the end of the last tourney, so hopefully I can add to that.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

So, looking through the scoring page, I find the banners to be my objective during the tournament. There are more banners than one person has time to go for, as well as some that are beyond my abilities (4 streak? hahano), and I would like the clan to have cooridnated efforts to get as many lvl 3 banners as possible.

#%Explorer/Ash- Full clear extended/17 runes
Saint/Beogh- Have a good clan
Slow and Steady/Chei - 4 streak
Politician/Dim- Steal High Score > 10million
%Pious/Ely- Champion 13 gods
*Nature's Ally/Fedhas - OrbTomb Challenge
*Avarice/Gozag - First rune branch iron
%Gelatinous Body/Jiyva - 5 different species/background wins
*Lord of Darkness/Kiku - No Temple, Lair, Orc, Vaults Win
Heretic/Lugonu - Champion/Abandon Ru before end of Lair Win
$Speed Demon/Makh - Win in 3 hours
Nemelex' Choice/Nemelex - Nemelex Challenge
$Conqueror/Okawaru - Win in < 50000 turns
*%Prophet/Qaz - 3 wins w/ distinct invocations titles
*Ascetic/Ru - First Rune w/o potions, scrolls.
*Lorekeeper/Sif - Win w/o any skill 13
*Vow of Courage/TSO - 6 runes before depths
Brute Force/Trog - No god/demigod win.
*Ruthless Efficiency/Vehu - Win before xl 19
#*Descent into Madness/xom- Clear a Zig
#%Harvest/Yred- Kill 72 Distinct Uniques /tournament
#%Angel of Justice/Zin - Kill Pan/Hell Lords over tournament.

*=Banners I want to try for.
#= Banners that are modified full extended clears.
%=Banners that are breadth of tournament awards.
$=Speedruns

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Make sure to read the rules http://dobrazupa.org/tournament/0.16/ and adjust your trunk .rc file accordingly!

0.16 rc file, not the trunk one.

I would like the clan to have cooridnated efforts to get as many lvl 3 banners as possible

I doubt I could manage any of these, but the 'Champion 13 gods' one might be doable as that's weighted in favour of people with a lot of free time, and I like variety, so I'll keep that in mind. One thing I like to do is try and nab a few high scores for unpopular combos (especially IE), as in combos where you don't necessarily have to win to get the high score.

Also, it's that long since I've seen Shaolin Soccer that I didn't realise that's where the team name comes from! Excellent choice.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

I had a lot of fun in a clan in the 0.14 tourney and kind of missed it in 0.15, so I'd love to join one now. I've yet to win, but I play a ton.

Okay, since there are several calls for a casual clan (including me), I'm setting up clan Horde_of_Ghosts. TeshiAlair, prozacelf, and lrvs, I've added you. PM me if you want out. I'll add the next 2 people to PM me, also.

Hi vible, we have a couple spots available on a low-key AWBW team. Shoot me a PM if you're interested. And that goes to whoever else is interested, too.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Hey guys! I'm looking for a clan that is competitive-ish, but still looking to have a good time. Experience: I have won with all 26 races, but my best streak is only 2. I don't consider myself to be that good a player, but I have put a fair bit of time into the game. I don't know too much about the scoring system for the tourney, but will happily pursue whatever the clan might designate to be high priority. :D

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Well, my warmup game is going better than anticipated, and I have to go out tonight, so I'll probably switch to a different server. Otherwise I'm liable to spend half the first weekend finishing this non-tourney character. I knew I should have waited. I suppose I could just kill it.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

I was an hour late on a VSVM win before it filled up two days ago.

Yesterday, I hit zot 5 on a HOAM and it filled. as I was clearing. So I try for the golden rune w/ orb challenge.

I tele right next to the gold rune and am 3 spaces away. A greater mummy summons 3 emperor scorpions. I die.

I have been one step behind this whole tournament. Frustrated.

My condolences. It seems like more people are going for the nem bonus, maybe it's time to raise the cap a little?

Sorry, Team Evil -- my own inimitable brand of lameness strikes twice. I've had two high-point combo (DgIE and DrFE) with three runes and was unable to finish things with either one. Congrats to fearitself, traveller, and edgefigaro for your wins so far, and I'll keep plugging away.

Likewise I crashed a formidable-seeming FoFi by taking it to Slime and pissing about instead of heading for Zot with my three runes. Maybe I'll learn one day!

You are not obligated to play Nemelex choice. Initially I was going to play Nemelex choice only but soon found that I am too slow with usual play and that I become a really bad player when in hurry so I switched to doing other things. You can specialize in your clan, go for Zig 27 or extremely hard species, for example. Just make sure to check rules, as I learned Ascetic III banner is not shown for clan :(
Golden rune with Orb gives too few points IMHO, it is really easy to die there.

I'm good, this tournament has been a blast. Took a MiEE to 2 runes on a no-god run this morning, going for the trog banner, died to TRJ. I was pushing under the gun on the nemelex stuff over the weekend as I've got much less time during the week.

I'm going at the tournament trying to get as many lvl 3 banners as I can. I'm having a lot of fun doing this, point scoring be damned. There are so many fun challenges to do. Kiku challenge (no lair/orc/temple) run --> first rune iron (gozag challenge) looks promising.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Nice win, cerealjynx! A lot of you are much more adventurous than me, that's for sure -- I tend to just look at the high point value species/background/god combos left and try to figure out what might be within my meager skill-set. I did just start a VSMo of Zin in the hopes of grabbing some new, untouched-by-me runes this run, but I should take a lead from some of you and try something challenging just for the heck of it.

Re: 0.16 Tournament Clans?

Thanks for getting the clan set up, Cereal. The tourney was great fun and we did reasonably well. Personally, I was pleased with a 2 game streak (I'm no Walkerboh), my highest single game score, and with getting the 72 unique banner.

Can't wait for the next tournament but first a couple week break.
