Post by wtfcolt » Mon May 13, 2019 2:52 am

The Reckless is hosting an ARK competition! All participants will receive an in-game 'loot bag' with various interesting items. Prizes awarded per competition and overall grand prizes. First, second, and third places will be scored in all events. Some larger prizes include Tek Generators, Teleporters, Platform Quetzals, and more!

Events will include: Jousting, PVP Arena, Archery, Spear Throwing, Shoulder-Pet Battles, Jerboa Fights, & Two Raptor Races, one on an obstacle course/race track, and the other cross-country through dangerous terrain.

Sunday, June 16th
7:00 PM EST

Jousting: Bracketed single-elimination competition. Prepare a horse, saddle, lance, any CKF shield, and flak armor. Players will take passes starting with the launch of flare gun. Points are awarded based on hits. More scoring info to come.

Arena: Bracketed single-elimination competition. Players may use flak, hide, or cloth armor of any quality (color). Weapons & shields may be chosen from melee/thrown weapons available in the CKF addon. No bows, guns, or explosives of any kind.

Archery: Players will shoot at targets at varying distances holding values based on difficulty. Each player will take three shots at any of the targets they choose. Highest points total wins. Ties will be decided by each player shooting one extra arrow. Only the basic bow crafted from fiber and wood will be allowed. Crosshairs will be disabled on the server for the competition.

Spear Throwing: Follows general rules of the archery competition above.

Pet Battles: Bring your best pets to fight in a single elimination tournament. All creatures must be able to be picked up and placed on your characters shoulder. Please consider preparing up to three pets to battle with. Players will launch their pets into the arena using cryopods. Surviving pet wins. Depending on testing, land creatures and flying creatures may be split into two classes.

Jerboa Fights: Breed and mutate your cute little furry death machines and prepare one for battle. Single elimination bracketed competition.

Raptor Race (Track): This race will happen upon an obstacle course style racetrack. Speed and accuracy will be important. No Tek Raptors. More info to come.

Raptor Race (Cross-Country): This race will be similar to a scavenger hunt. Players will be given coordinates at the start of a race to a hidden location. This location will have a few more coordinates noted. You will need to visit the locations and retrieve one item from each. After the initial sprint to the first location, there is no set order in which you may retrieve the items. Once all the items are retrieved, you must take them and your raptor to the finish area. Use of any teleporter is disallowed. No Tek Raptors. You may take any item with you that you wish except for any type of weapon or item to impede or damage other players mounts or characters with one exception, you may use bolas after the first checkpoint. Locations will not be disclosed before the event.

General Rules
No consumables or buffs, such as soups or healing potions, may be used in any event. Players may use basic cooked meats and water. No outside help from players or tamed dinosaurs other than the allotted dinosaurs for the specific event. Races are separate and do not require use of the same raptor. Raptors may be bred, but cannot be Tek. Anyone caught cheating in any event will be disqualified. If you need assistance acquiring a horse, raptor, or basic gear needed for the competition, please consider asking in our discord channel.

Please note the rules & information in this topic are subject to change as we're still working out the bugs. Specific prizes to be announced.
