Crown of Sand



Each year the Tomb lords of the Khemri meet at a charred and blackened crack in the desert. There, powerful magic is called upon from ancient Tomes and Lich Lords under vow to assist, and the dusty magical conflagration sends up a flaming beacon into the sky. Teams from all over the world see the sign and flock to the desert for the chance to compete for the Crown Of Sand.

Tournament draw starts
22.00pm server time
Wednesday 16th May 2018


Any Ranked or Blackbox team can apply here to the qualifiers.

Prizes

The Crown Of Sand gives the chosen player an instant and permanent +stat of the coaches choosing (to a maximum on any stat of +2 still) and also bestows the skill Decay. The coach may also, only at this moment, choose to fill their roster with as many Sand Skeletons as they wish. The first of these arrives skilled to 16spp and with the skill Pro and Leader, but all such Skeletons also recieve the skill Decay, to reflect that they are made from sand. They will have 30TV

That prize REALLY needs reviewing in my humble opinion.
Posted by SzieberthAdam on 2018-05-01 23:28:02
Please fix the Eligibility section of the group page.

I'm with Cloggy. That's cray.

It's been the same for the last however many years
Posted by pythrr on 2018-05-01 23:56:27
i wwill have the crap-hat and 15 crap skellingtons, please!
Posted by MrNomad on 2018-05-02 03:30:22
A prize for winning a major should not have a neg-trait.
Posted by Cloggy on 2018-05-02 08:26:51
I know it has been like this for ages Throweck. With the risk of causing a shitstorm: back then it was "only" a Box major so who cares? Also, most of them had terrible prizes so this one was proportionate. Now that it's one of one 6 joint majors the prize is just too awful compared to all the others.
Posted by Verminardo on 2018-05-02 10:20:15
WO price was more crappy than this...
Posted by Harad on 2018-05-02 12:47:15
Accepting that the main thrust of your comment Cloggy is the quality of the prize. Remember that it is 'so I don't care' rather than 'so who cares'. Some of us enjoyed the box majors more :) That's not a comment on any decisions as to which ones to keep etc. just trying to give some balance.
Posted by ArrestedDevelopment on 2018-05-02 18:27:24
While I think Cloggy had all the tact of a hand grenade there, he did have a point - B major prizes are pretty "meh" in comparison to the R majors.

I always thought this was by design since (a) you don't expect an extra player or w/e to last long in B anyway, and (b) B as a division at its incarnation (if not now), was effectively ideologically opposite to the idea of eg. temple guard like prizes.

Now that the majors are combined, it would make sense to revisit the prizes, especially if we have a prize that, to be frank, many coaches would actually simply reject taking - this is a potential bottleneck on participation, when the prize should actually encourage sign-ups.


For the record, I think the prize was quite fluffy and fun, and not at all overpowered in B (which was the aim). But that was in a different place, a different time, and for a different audience.
Posted by Jeffro on 2018-05-02 19:33:03
So would it be fluffy or meta for me to enter Khemri?
Posted by BillBrasky on 2018-05-02 20:07:25
SKeletons with Piling-On enabled, and decay sounds much better!
Posted by morehouse on 2018-05-02 20:18:49
What AD said. This is a prize to winning a huge major tournament that honestly... I may not even want on my team at all. That sucks a lot of the fun out of participating and that's not what we want for a major.
Posted by bancobat on 2018-05-02 21:01:12
With my only box friends we thought it was the best major price lol
You almost never have 16 players in box and a +1ST item was nice even with decay
I also remember that jokaero (CoS winner) was « apologizing » in his bio for the power of having skeleton in a nurgle team !

But it’s true that compared to the R prices, we also thought it was crappy :-)
Posted by Throweck on 2018-05-02 21:31:38
Ooooooh tough crowd.

Your points are being listened to and considered.
Posted by Arktoris on 2018-05-03 19:13:04
If anyone doesn't want that hat, give it to me. I have yeti that would love 7ST and decay.
Posted by dorfeus on 2018-05-04 15:19:39
Flings are In!

I can easily take Decay to soon to be ST8 Tree and I'm very happy to fill my roster with Skeletons!
