What is IronMan?
Ironman is an arena-type PvP event played on Hardcore. Everyone makes a new character and collects gear while leveling to 18. Then you must fight each other until the last man standing!

General Rules:
Your new character will be name tagged (given by host prior to character creation).
Example: pvp-onions, pvp-marco, pvp-quirinus.
The host's character will be named IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII to make him easy to find on minimap and avoid any confusion.
You cannot join any games with this character before the game is made by host.

Leveling Phase Rules:
Going to Gheed is forbidden under all circumstances. No Map Reveal, no gambling, no oils. Only the host/moderators is allowed to be near Gheed.
More details below.
>You must leave town as soon as you enter the game.
>You must party with everyone.
>You may start as soon as you join the specified game or wait for your "team".
>You cannot pick up class-specific items that aren't for your character.
>You must come back to town as soon as you are level 18.
>When you are back in town, you must stay in town until everyone else is level 18.
>When you're level 18, you may shop from Charsi or Akara for base items, but NO gambling (i.e. Gheed is illegal. Filthy peasant.)
>You may trade with other contestants at any time after the leveling phase.
>You MUST get the Stony Field waypoint.
>Going to town before level 18 without permission of the host/moderators is strictly forbidden.

ImageNew mystic orb shop!Image
During the 5 minutes of shopping time, you may purchase Mystc Orbs with a discount by:
>Telling the Host what Mystic Orbs you want.
>Giving 7500 gold to the host per Mystic Orb you requested.
>Finally, trade with Host and receive your Mystic Orbs.


The moderator hosting the event will be tagging along during the leveling and will be the only one using mapreveal, follow this person! Once the Dark Wood is reached, the moderator picks up the scroll, goes and opens up tristram, while the rest of the gang takes the Dark Wood WP to Stony Field and farms out Tristram (highly recommended for bases and xp). The giftbox will be picked up by the moderator while the leveling continues.

PvP Phase:
>You must have every opponent hostiled except the moderator who will be watching during the duels.
>Contestants must be ~1.5 screens away before the match starts.
>The match begins when all contestants confirm they are ready. The moderator will declare the start.
>No projectiles can be pre-cast before the match. (This includes Totems)
>Once the duels begin, respec is illegal.
>No overly defensive play. (Avoiding players, such as keeping yourself more than a screen away from any other player and not dealing any damage or attempting to)
>You cannot leave the Blood Moor until the match is over.
>Only Mana Potions are allowed.
>No poison with more than 1 second duration
>You cannot use any healing (life replenish, life on attack, healing potions, etc; LAEK and LL are allowed), wells, or shrines. (Players are responsible for calling out competitors if they see instant life heals, etc.)
>No teaming, if a team is detected during pvp phase it will result in the team being disqualified.

After the winner is declared the host of the event will doublecheck for life replenish. This will be done by the player standing outside of town after losing some life while the life is observed.

only 3 people signed up so far. there were 16 last week. hurry and sign up everyone. with more people, more types of events can be done with classifications for melee only, etc.

the more that sign up, the more creative and appealing the events can get.

need more signups for the event.

Also curious for those who aren't signing up.. why? why not? Post your reasons here and perhaps the events can be made more applicable. Do you not care for the 1 hour it takes to lvl to 18 and quick duel for a chance to get 60tg out of a 5tg investment?
Are you not familiar with low-lvl items and affixes to look for?
Are you not familiar with pvp?

There are a lot of ideas that can be implemented into these events, but they need more participation, so either sign up or try to give decent reasonings why you can't or how the events can be improved. Thanks all

Perhaps include a free tournament that happens once a week as well. Winner gets a 15 tg entry for the next normal tournament. Then people can test builds without a risk, and maybe get something out of it. Just my 2 cents.
