This time the dwarves are out and about to crown a winner among their own.

In the words of Ginger Magician the organizer of this event:

Over the years there have been many challengers for the title of Dwarven King and this tournament will surely sort out the men from the boys and be a true test of pvp skill without any hitbox disadvantage and I hope many of my fellow dwarves will at least try their luck.


We certainly wish all the participants good luck and hope to see great fights. Make sure you check out the official thread (http://forums.darkfallonline.com/showthread.php?t=293122) to not miss out on more information!

So if ginger loses the tournament then does that mean all of his whine which was based on solid fact about dwarf unbalance wasnt true?

OK semifinals will be round robin as Orolt had to leave for work.

Kapteeni vs Natzi 2-0
Kapteeni vs Geben 2-0
Geben vs Natzi 2-1

The top 2 will go through to the final.In the event of a tie the number of rounds won will determine it.

Still best of 3

The final will therefore be Geben vs Kapteeni

Best of 5 full loot

Thx .

I was a little disappointed I didnt do better personally but then again i was not up agasinst a real dwarf and I only narrowly lost to the second places competitor so shouldnt complain too much.

It is ofc very hard to be organizer and competitor at the same time.

First off, great tournament (watched it via live stream!)

Secondly, does this mean that you will no longer have the "King of the Dwarves" portion in your signature as Kapteeni koukku has officially been declared as the Dwarven King.

Kapteeni is Queen of Dwarves.

The king is up for grabs still I guess.Maybe next tournament:)

Its not an excuse its just a fair comment.Nino is a hell of a player but he has never won one of his own events either.It is really not easy and I didnt have the time to mentally prepare myself to play as well I would have liked but I still enjoyed it very much and it was well worth doing in the end.

Even though I lost to a ringer I dont use that as an excuse either because he had the handicap of being a dwarf same as me.With my playstyle it is difficult to win against the best high level mages unfortunately.

Well that is what happened but there was no speciffic rule against it and having top players play dwarves was interesting for them and made the overall standard of the tournament a lot higher as well as making more entries.

If I do another tournament I think I will do one for large hitbox races i.e. dwarves orks and wolves and that could also be very interesting.

They were played by other players such as plug pull waylander throatslicer defa fuu and others.

In some ways the tournament reinforced the overall uselessness of dwarves in that people only play them as alts and when there is no other choice and ofc a female with a hitbox advantage won the tournament overall.

But AV dont give a fuck so it wont make difference whatever.For me as a solo male dwarf I simply have little to no chance in the majority of fights nowadays.
With meditation all characters are similar and the disadvantages of being dwarf are more obvious than ever.My alfar will be good when it is ready but it takes a very long time to level it nowadays.Without 100 to base stats you cant be competitive anymore certainly not as a soloist.

I lost narrowly to a very good player who is actually an Alfar and a very good magic cycler who ended up coming second overall.PLus organizing and competing at the same time makes its hard to concentrate mentally.

So while I would liked to have done better it was no disgrace overall.

I liked the part with the female dwarf hitbox, just accept that you're not the best players and never been the best dwarf.

Well thats debateable.If I had won that round I would have reached the final and who knows what would have happened then.

If I had not been organizing and was able to prepare myself properly for each fight I think it would have been very close but ofc to beat a maxed out mage like Kapteeni who has almost every offensive spell surging would have been difficult.

Without doubt I am still the best melee/archery dwarf and one of the best in the game overall at that playstyle.

Its truely sad that the only way to play the game is as a mage and all players are forced into one playstyle to compete.

Wrong as usual.Tournament was the last hurrah for GM in DF1 regardless of whether I had won or lost that was always my intention.
Am actually enjoying the break and playing another game atm.

I dont understand some ppl here.. GM is what he is but for once he made something usefull aka tournament, afaik it went smooth, for a change instead of whining he made an effort to do something and quite succeded. Im not a fan of GM but most of you bashing him in this thread done nothing for comunity. He was entertaining us for years with his post and finally made good attempt with this tourney so imo GTFO or make something yourself, good job GM [despite earlier whines]
