WE ARE COMING TO AMERICA! - THE HARBINGER SERVER

Trailer here courtesy of Skyrush: https://youtu.be/YVJ6OopOYiE

This event will highlight everything American! Violence, a lack of democracy and teenagers getting shot!

This is still a first come first serve event, if you want in then post your details and you'll be signed up. We want to make this the best possible tournament we can so we may have to jiggle some picks around but we'll genuinely try and keep it as much first come first serve as possible.

After you've all recovered from spending valentines day alone, upper cutting waterfalls for practice because you're clearly the next 1v1 champ we're bring the pain state side. It's time for The Ultimate Regstar Championship to make it's first trip overseas.

Once again Eric Musco has been generous to us for prizes giving us a bunch of cartel coin codes to giveaway but because this is on my non native server I have no credits to offer - any donations for prizes would be greatly appreciated and recognised during the broadcast.

At URC #4 we saw Mosh - the reigning champion get taken down in nail biting fashion against the Russian potato powerhouse that is Roudy. Will he reclaim his belt on home soil or is he forever AFK? Due to two operatives bringing shame to the class and making each round last 20 minutes we have some new rules. Seriously, it's meant to be a fight, not a "see who can roll in opposite direction and heal the best" competition.

If you're looking to see what the events are like we have links here. These are abridged events made by the amazingly talented Skyrush and even if you aren't taking part I strongly suggest you check his youtube channel out:

URC #1: https://youtu.be/b6408zkzVHs

URC #3: https://youtu.be/AZLViax2Ed8
URC #4: https://youtu.be/3FSL-8umrvM

To avoid the normal basement dwellers who like to try and spoil these events by mounting up and jumping around during duels we'll be holding it in the Nar Shadda stronghold again. I understand the LOS isn't perfect, I understand leap doesn't work perfectly, take the issue up with bioware.

The format will be similar BUT A BIT DIFFERENT to previous events. Once again the stealth and non stealth classes will be separated out but there will be NO non stealth vs steal the finals.

Also this time Operatives ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OUT OF STEALTH REGENERATE AND CAN ONLY VANISH ONCE PER ROUND. IF YOU PLAY OPERATIVE PLEASE UNDERSTAND BREAKING THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION.

In case you've watched my stream you'll know I hate, like really hate, making extra rules for duels but the class balance is so out of whack something has to be done. On top of that, this rule should prevent any 20 minute hug fests like we saw during one fight last time. PLEASE BEAR IN MIND ALL RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE: THIS IS THE BEST IDEA I HAVE RIGHT NOW IF SOMETHING ELSE POPS UP THAT IS MORE ELEGANT I WILL CHANGE THIS.

Stealth and Non Stealth are completely seperate brackets this time. We will have 1st and 2nd place in both stealth and non, prizes will be equal.

To make the tournament even more interactive we'll also be hosting a discord room for those watching to be able to discuss the action as it unfolds and to get the opinions of the viewers on who they think will take the win!

32 spots are available for now, we'll do our best to accommodate every one but we reserve the right to make some adjustments to the format if necessary.
