Welcome to the organization of the Fourth Hunger Games! It was high time to have this event again. For those who are yet unfamiliar with the Hunger Games event, as the name says, this event is based mainly on the concept of the Hunger Games books and/or movies. The main idea of this event is simple and has proven very effective: Participants are dropped in a certain area and the way to win this event, is to stay alive. Since there can be only one winner, this means everyone will have to kill... well, everyone! Herefore, aggression is the means of attacking others.
Where will it be held this time? The Fourth Hunger Games 2014 will be held at the Amaknian Governor Island (or the 'new' Headquarters). Why here? It looks fancy! Okay the main reason is that it's just a really nice place for this event. When you read the rules (and read them or die) you'll find out why!
A recap on the rules:
Plainly stated, there aren't any! That is, concerning the fights - you're free to attack everyone you like in order to become the last person standing and claim victory! Does this mean that ganging is allowed? Yes! But... you can expect to be attacked by a mob when you're done killing someone else You're allowed to hide as well, and form teams secretly beforehand without anyone else knowing. Working together sneakily is allowed and even makes things fun.
It's not allowed to hide behind something people can't click or reach you. Hiding behind a tree is allowed though, but keep in mind there's people who'll be able to cut them! Aside from that you're allowed to run, flee, team up on the spot with strangers, ambush people, team up before the event starts... Let loose your skills to create the biggest chance of winning! This is why the Governor Island is such a nice place for this event. This place has a lot to offer concerning hiding and running away. Also, this island has several layers (up to three!) of height to stand on, so it will be hard or impossible sometimes to attack someone on a 'storage' below you, allowing this person to flee and get out of sight.
When you've killed someone (the one who deals the final blow), PM any of the organizers (Blantuise, Rayne, Sisma, Hyr) who will note down your victory. Aside from this, the organizers will run around to spectate the fights to be sure about the winners and losers of a fight. Organizers will wear a special Costume, Spectral Costume, to show they're no part of the game.
Watch out, disqualification will follow if you:
- Wear the same Costume as the organizers
- Attack an organizer
- Joining a fight when you're not registered (the fight will become a rematch)
- Trashtalk or be rude or disrespectful towards your opponents, teammates, spectators or organizers
- Hide inside your Haven Bag
- Enter the Safe Zones (see latest post for screenshots)
- Attack someone in the Safe Zones
- Re-joining after dying (there will be guards at the boat, the prison, the cannon and the door to the inner HQ for Government members (yeah you're all sneaky I know what you're up to! e-e) *cough*
As a side note, there's a broken/bugged tile somewhere on the Island, disabling you to go to certain parts quickly via this cell. We posted a clear screenshot of this tile in a post below. If you happen to lose because of this broken tile, this will be considered as a defeat and you're out of the game.
