Intro
Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the RV "Skills Competition" thread! My name is Skulled Robe and Iam the Host/Leader.

About This Event

Hidden: 
So, many of you may be wondering "What the heck is this all about?"

Well, I'll tell you. One week of each month, starting on the 1st of each month, we will be competing against one another to be the top exp gainer in a skill. The skill we work on will be decided by me or the results of a poll I will put up.

When the week is over, everyone will be required to post their ending exp and levels. I will then put those into a list or chart, then do the calculations to figure out the week's top gainers. But heck, if you wanna be extra generous, you can post the calculations yourself :)

Sooo, basically, this is just a more fun and competetive way of training skills. By no means am I saying you HAVE to participate, but I have learned from past experiences (we had one of these competitions in my old clan) that it can really motivate you to push harder and the competition part can make even the most boring skills fun again :D

One last little note that will hopfully keep this a fun and honest competition. Cheating...or...lying. It would be greatly appreciated if all players were honest, not lying about starting or finishing xp, and not starting or finishing training beyond the time limits set by me. I mean I'm not going to check the high scores to see if you win...but honestly, what is the point. There are no prizes, and what is the point of winning the competition if you can feel good about doing it fairly. So please, just be good sports and follow the rules :P


To Sign up:
At some point before the training week starts, everyone who wishes to participate will have to post their RS name, so I can go on my special account I made Rv_Skillcomp and add you. Or you can add me "Skulled Robe" and we'll go from there

Skill of the Month

I gave you the chance to vote for the next skill you all wished to train. You voted, the results are in and:

This month's skill is: FIREMAKING

________________

Oh, One last thing!

Seeing as this will be a re-occuring event...

I was wondering, if someone would be nice enough to make a pretty little sig for it :) It would have to be very attractive and if possible, incorporate ALL the skill icons into it somehow, aswell as making it a link to this topic :D

That would be great!

Thanks :wink:

PM Stalesoul.

He's fast

If you were to get a few different graphics made, it would encourage more people to use them.

Maybe a 300x100 sig, underbanner, and avatar?

Just throwing ideas at you here :P

Well, Technically...nothing. I would hope no one would train it until then, but nothing can stop people.

I only set it up this early in the hopes of getting a lot of people, for atleast the first run. But I guess I could make a quick high scores check the day before the event starts :roll:

anyways, added you guys :wink:

It's just that I'm doing lots of Dagannoth Kings and farming lately, and i also started playing Dota/Warcraft again.
So if i would join i would mine while i want to do something else.


Maybe i will have changed my mind in 3 weeks ;)
