Winter's Summer Ragnarok Challenge
#1
Winter's Summer Ragnarok Challenge (Spring into action or fall...)

The goal of this competition is to see who is truly the best at Ragnarok mode.  Teams will play one Ragnarok run at a scheduled time to see who can advance the farthest in Ragnarok mode while being attacked by sentient Nords.  The team that gets the farthest will be rewarded.  The rewards will scale off of how many teams compete.  Teams may also choose to do a second Hard Mode run in which your Ragnarok run will have all the same rules with the addition that no Resurrection Tomes will be allowed for a second leaderboard and the possibility of extra rewards.

Rules:
You may schedule the run for any time before July 19th (please give me a few days' notice in case it is a difficult time for me to attend so I can prepare or reschedule)
Each team must have a minimum of 10 and may have up to 17 players (if 1 is an admin) and 3 backups in case people do not make it
Players who are not backups may not fill for your team if people cannot make it
Each team will be allowed to reschedule one time
If for any reason I need to reschedule, it will not be counted against you
Each player may *participate* on a maximum of three teams - You may be a backup for more, but you can only actually play for three teams
Each team may have up to 50% player similarity to any other team participating in the run (8/16 is fine, 9/17 is not, backups do not count unless they actually play)
You may only be the captain of one team
You may choose whatever official NI map that is in rotation on public servers you want excluding Cavalry maps
In the event that two teams tie wiping on the same wave, both teams will be counted for that place
In the event that two or more teams clear the run, the team with the faster time wins
No Explosive Barrels will be allowed
You may swap characters during the run on Normal, but not on Hard Mode
I will be trying to kill you.  There will be no mercy.  (I will not control bosses).

So why do captains get a higher reward than their team? Its not like the captain sacrifices more than the others and the difference between a red legendary and an orange of choice is pretty high.

It takes a lot of coordination to get a team together.  If someone believes the rewards for captains are too high, I encourage them to start a team of their own.  I want as many teams competing as possible.



Edit: Some mistakes were made copying over the gold amounts from various drafts.  The correct gold amounts are now listed for each place.  The wording of collectible rewards has been edited for clarity.  Rule added that you can only be the captain of one team.  This was always the intent, but it was never expressed in the rules until now.  You may still play on up to three teams and may be a listed backup for as many as you'd like.
