Summary

  • The Corpse Creek Contest is a guild-based battle for the town of Corpse Creek that lasts 30 minutes
  • Corpse Creek now has a Control Platform with braziers that light up while the Corpse Creek Contest (CCC) underway
  • Any system message for the Corpse Creek Contest that is sent to players will be prefaced with a "[CCC]" in the text


Location

  • Corpse Creek Contests will always take place within the town of Corpse Creek and feature a stationary Central Control Platform which is considered the focal point the event is based around
  • The region of Corpse Creek is always considered a Grey zone, so all players are always freely attackable within
  • However, during a Corpse Creek Contest guilds participating may adopt special hue flagging (Orange / Green) towards each other that would not normally occur while inside a Grey Zone (this is purely to help guilds identify who are friendly / enemy participants)


Participation

  • Players become Participants in the Corpse Creek Contest by simply entering the Corpse Creek town region while the event is underway (players must be in a guild, however)
  • Any player who Recalls or uses a Player-Moongate will not qualify for Corpse Creek Contest zone control for the next 60 seconds


Zones and Flagging

The Corpse Creek Contest area is considered to be the entire town region of Corpse Creek (which is always treated as being a Grey Zone). While inside the Corpse Creek Area during a Corpse Creek Contest event:

  • Players in the same guild or same alliance will flag as Green to each other (including Murderers)
  • Players in all other guilds will flag as Orange to each other
  • Players who are not in a guild, and therefore cannot be considered Corpse Creek Contest Participants, will flag as Grey (including Murderers)

Scoring

  • Corpse Creek Contests are Guild-based, meaning each Guild acts as its own individual team
  • Even though Allied guilds will flag as Green to each other, they are considered separate teams with their own scores
  • At the end of the Corpse Creek Contest event, the guild with the highest score is deemed the winner
  • Players also have their own individual score tracking that is used for determining Rewards and Battle Records, but does not factor into determination of which Guild is the winner of the event


Guild Scoring

  • Every 30 seconds a "Control Check" occurs to determine scoring
  • Guilds earn points during Control Checks based on the "best" ring that they currently have guild members occupying (and they do not have to be the "sole" guild present in that ring to earn points)
  • For example, a guild with participants in both the 1st Ring and 2nd Ring would earn 30 points during a Control Check


Player Scoring

  • During a Control Check, guildmembers earn Individual Control Points based on the ring that they themselves occupy (not the "best" ring of the guild) and divided by the total number of guildmembers in the entire Corpse Creek Town region
  • For instance, a guild has 10 guildmembers currently in Corpse Creek, with 4 of them in the 1st Ring and 6 of them in the 2nd Ring
  • The 4 players in the 1st Ring will each earn 30 / 10 = 3 Points and the 6 players in the 2nd ring will each earn 20 / 10 = 2 Points during the Control Check
  • As a reminder, individual player scores do not factor into determining the winner of the event


Control Points

Control during the Corpse Creek Contest is based upon a "Three-Ring" concept. Guilds earn points during the event based on the best "Ring" that their guild currently has guild members occupying

1st Ring

  • Inside of the Central Control Platform, marked by flaming pillars and a circular altar
  • Worth 30 points during Control Check


2nd Ring

  • Any location outside of the 1st Ring but within 50 tiles of it (and still inside of Corpse Creek Town)
  • Worth 20 points during Control Check


3rd Ring

  • Any location outside of the 2nd Ring but still within the Corpse Creek Town Region
  • Worth 10 points during Control Check


Player Kills

  • Guilds can steal points from enemy guilds by killing their participating players
  • Killing a participating enemy guild player will steal 5% of the enemy team's points total and add it to their own team's total (decimals are used for point values)
  • If a guild is currently at 0 points, no points can be stolen from them

Kill Credits

  • Whenever a player is killed, the player who did the most damage to the target is considered receiving the credit for the kill and their "Kills" stat will be increased by one (this stat is purely for display purposes though)
  • If a kill results in points being stolen from the opposing guild, then every individual player involved in the kill earns "Kill Points" equal to their (% Damage Dealt to Player * Guild Points Stolen)
  • For instance, a guild that currently has a score of 100 Points has a member of their team killed, which would result in 100 * .05 = 5 Points being stolen from them
  • A player who did 50% of the total damage dealt to that killed player would earn 5 * .50 = 2.5 Kill Points for their own individual score tracking
  • A player who did 25% of the total damage dealt to that killed player would earn 5 * .25 = 1.25 Kill Points for their own individual score tracking


Rewards

At the end of the Corpse Creek Contest the Top 3 guilds ranked by Guild Score earn rewards. Additionally, the Top 10 scoring players from each of those guilds will receive individual rewards (Player Total Score = Player Control Points + Player Kill Points).
