Diablo® III

Of Guppies and Sharks

Please note, recruitment is over.

For those of you who didn't catch it, back in April we ran a Skorn v Dual Wield Challenge involving some of the legends of the game.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8569389721#1

Part of my motivation in starting the Challenge was to educate myself, and hopefully the community, about gearing and skills choices in creating a Barbarian from scratch able to kill the MP10 Ubers in the fastest possible time, and learn from the best of the best.

In this conclusion to the series, and before we start further Challenges, I am hoping to see how much "Average Joe" players learnt, or can learn from the original Challenge and its discussions and gear choices.

Team Guppy (Dual Wield)
Eclipse
IAmOmegaRed
twil
JoaquinFDT
Reserver: Kamui

Team Sharks
Aleas
Kluno
Vyktoria
L1keaboss
Reserve: Leit

We need one more player for each team and so are asking for volunteers.

Entry requirements?
Actually, for these two spots I'd probably prefer players who are relatively new to the game and who are keen to learn from the experience. But really, open to anyone who didn't participate in the original challenge. Also, your computer must be powerful enough to handle the video recording software.

What is the Challenge?
Two teams will be given 1B each to gear their teams and then kill the Ubers in the fastest time. Rules will be as per the original challenge.

What you win?
The winning team gets to keep both gearsets.

Sooooo.... any volunteers?

Thanks for the involuntary volunteer. I don't know anything about the ah anymore other than building 1mil sets. Playing self found for the past month has me out of touch with mid tier prices, but I flipped a 15k ammy for 1mil. I feel so dirty.

I wonder if the DW team will be less embarassed this time around with their defeat. :P

They will have to gear for HotA/rend this time around. I'm thinking 3 slots of IAS or even less might very well be the way to go.

No disrespect, but if the DW team has players that actually play the game in it's current state, they will probably do better.

No way jose.... ;)

But in all honesty, if they gear right for hota as silverfire said, then they might do better, but at this budget, skorn will take it again I believe. With a limitless budget, DW would have an advantage, unless Death comes out to play. Then it's everyone's guess.

Good to see the rivalry begin already :)

But I think, if the Teams are going to be competitive, they will need the input of the more experiencesd players and I'm hoping that that will be the case, that all you gentlemen help provide support and knowledge.

@ Noobs

Thanks for your interest and keep putting your hand up. I might extend the teams if we have enough players.

@ Phat
Nice flip. We'll be having you sell "essences" soon :)

I'm fairly new barb and I am keen to learn the mechanics DW & 2H and experience from such event. I just came back to the game 2 weeks back and lost track of the theory/mathcraft of the game.
Nothing to lose and of course at the end hope to keep the gear since i can't really afford anything in the game atm
