User Events / Fishing Tournament {after 1.7 bukkit release}
« on: November 21, 2013, 08:18:58 pm »
I talked about it in-game, but it's been a while and bukkit is still progressing towards its 1.7 update. So before I forget about it I'll post it here.

The 1.7 update has updated some fishing mechanics so now we can fish not only the generic fish but also pufferfish, salmon, treasure, etc. With this in mind and with the 1.7 update and new world coming i was thinking we should make a fishing tourney (and some other festivities) for the upcoming upgrade.

Rules and Scoring system
I haven't thought much about how to grade the different tiers, but I'll put it here as i go. Firstly, the tournament will be at least 30min long and everything you catch within this time will count towards your score. After some time or at the end of the tourney, you'll put your catch in the chest provided where two (or more) judges will take note of your catch. For score grading, I was thinking that with enough people, fish and treasure could be graded by catching rarity and give a point to each rarity tier to be decided after the tourney finished. (At least, that's the easiest way to do. But it will take time to grade everyone)

The place is not yet decided, but i was thinking that either my normal /home (taking the cacti off) or a temp home at my torii would work as both are surrounded by ocean. If it rains, i'd go for the torii area. Otherwise at my /home. I'm open to suggestions so if you've got an uber fishing place post it here or send me a msg in-game.

As Bukkit hasn't released their ETA i can't say when this is going to happen, but for now I think that the weekend after it releases (minimum 5 days after release) is good so the new-world-frenzy is over and for me to prepare some 1.7 related prizes.

Most prizes will be, of course, fishing related. I'll put some enchanted fishing rods for the first, second, and third (depending on participation, maybe even further down).
Another thing i was thinking about is that we could make it in scoring order to have a pick of the pool of everyone's catch. So first picks one/two items, then second, third, etc. This way even low scoring people can get some of the new stuff and not just go back with empty hands.
Or it could be just to take back what you caught. I want some opinions on this area.

Looking for Judges
As i mentioned before, I'll need at least one more person to judge and help with the tournament. Preferably a mod or a trusted member. If you're interested, please post your application here. :)

There are many things that might have to be decided by everyone so please post your opinions or another ideas you might have. :)

Thanks for reading!

Hi everyone! I finally realized why my password wasn't working  :P

I started playing minecraft around the 31 of august and about two weeks later (just a bit after the iron market update) i joined opti because of my brother and a friend who play here. I have to thank both of them because i really like the server and the community that is strong and amicable even if it's somewhat smaller than before.

I'm from central america, but i've been identified as asian a lot.  :P I speak some japanese and lived there for a couple of years. I love anime and manga (I'm reading/watching Genshiken right now), but dont know that many. My favorite colors are dark hues of blue and I'm building a gigantic Torii at the southeastern corner of the Guest world (not yet finished, but you can see it from space the live map)

See you in game!
宜しくお願いします m(_ _)m
