Things have changed since the arena was first implemented into GV. In the early days, if you tied your opponent in the arena and lost, you would add another blemish to your arena record and conversely, if you won, another victory would be added. Never would I push for tie in those days, I would always go for the win. Now, with ties affecting neither duelists’ arena records, I have often pushed for it, especially in situations where my back was against the wall, and I felt that a tie was my best option to avoid adding another loss to the hero’s arena record. The ability to send links so that others may view the matches did not exist either. There was also no such thing as sparring matches in the beginning. You could only match heros within your own level, and every match was a bloodmatch. Gloves off, every time. This created many challenges for the GV arena tournaments in their infancy.
+
As many of you know I'm an arena addict, I was the first god with Honored Invincible and currently hold the most number of wins in Godville. But what many of you may not know (except maybe those few who were wise enough to figure it out themselves, who I'm sure are very few) is that I have often used some special tactics to get myself here. But since I'm always looking for a better fight, and also because i've been receiving too many death threats, I am now willing to reveal a few of my tricks of the trade.
  
The first arena tournament that I was a part of was run by Harvest Moon and the Beluga messenger application was used to coordinate and communicate. I believe Lord Ulvolose was the god that instigated putting this HM tournament together. Beluga is now defunct, thanks to Facebook buying it with the sole purpose of harpooning the whale and shutting it down. It began in October of 2011. I understand that there was another tournament, prior to this HM tourney, so technically, it was not the first EngGV tournament although the HM tournament was the first to be widely promoted. It was actually RoE, (Rise of Evil), that had the first. Drool, Barrykay and a few others organized that one, but I know very little of that event. There have also been arena tournaments in OriGV, before any known tournaments in EngGV. The HM tournament was a 3-charge limit one in an effort to attract both paying and non-paying players. I remember there being so many unforeseen problems and that trying to see the tournament all the way through was like trying to push an elephant through the eye of a needle. I also remember understanding that the entire process would help to ensure that future tournaments would go much smoother that the first one.
+
'''Godville lag.''' Many people experience this in many different ways but it can be used for your advantage. Are you facing a tough opponent? Someone who is high up on a pantheon? Friend them when you get to step 4. Send them a message of good luck and well wishes. Every time you send a message to some people there are alerts going off and they distracts them and make them look away from the fight. And with some people using Android devices, it can even lag their phone causing them to miss a turn. Just make sure this technique doesn't backfire on you, it requires much focus.
  
One of the positive things to come from that first tourney was the “challenge a friend” sparring feature. The idea was hatched and the developers responded very quickly by implementing it into the game. Since Facebook killed the Whale, Palringo had become the group messenger app used in coordinating the matches and updates and is still used today. The next big tournament was the Summer of 2012 Tournament of Champions. Much was learned from the prior event, and this one was immensely more successful. The first of the no-holds-barred events with a field of 32 combatants. The final was {{god|God of Tasty}} vs. {{god|Little Ghost}}, LG emerging as the victor. The following two tournaments were “theme based”, and were highly successful as well. The second was the “Hunger Games” with guilds sending two members each to fight to the death. Just like the popular books, it was Slave vs Slave in the end with {{god|Safi}} emerging as the winner over guildmate {{god|V-vin}}. Then, the third matched Good vs Evil ...vs Neutral vs Chaos. Evil reigned supreme with {{god|Hairplug4men}} taking down {{god|Jimbob64}} in the final round. Some incredible matches between some of the game’s top arena competitors in all three of these GVToC events. The ''”final”'' GVToC, “Rest in Pieces”, was the mother of all gladiator tournaments. The developers provided 200 charges in prizes which were added to the victor’s winnings making it an unprecidented 700-charge 1st prize. Great prizes for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th as well. Many consolation prizes were given too. This time, there were 64 combatants and the tournament filled just in time for the designated start! In the end, {{god|SBFH}} was the last gladiator standing and he did the noblest of things by giving all of his winnings away to the organizers of the tournament.
+
'''Small talk voice commands.''' This little trick is one of my favorites, it requires you to research your opponent even if just so slightly as to understand and make fun of their name. Make sure you are using proper voice commands and not mixing them when doing this but if you can distract them long enough to type out their own brand new voice command to come back at you they could possibly miss the turn as a result of writing for way too long.
  
I am sad that the original incarnation of the Godville Tournament of Champions has come to an end, but the future of the Godville arena is very bright with ambitious players such as {{god|LHR Bad Karma}} taking the reins from HP4M and leading the way to what is sure to be a brilliant future for the GVToC. The upcoming “Valentine’s Day Massacre” is certain to be as successful as its predecessors and I hope we continue to get the same participation and support from all of the great arena lovers of Godville.
+
'''Lying!''' This one you can have fun with. Especially with a disgusting worthless no good goody goody. Tell people you're in for a pet res, put it in your motto that you have no GP left, or an insider tip put this little ® thing in your motto and get an afk who might be willing to lay down and die for your cause of success. Don't feel bad about it, all is fair in love and war and arena.
 +
 
 +
In the end the most important thing and what I love the most about this game, is to be proud of what you have accomplished, love what you do, and make sure people remember your name. If that means destroying every one of them to do it, then what must be must be. There are alot more on my list, but you obviously cant expect me to reveal them all.
 +
 
 +
Since I haven't yet retired from the arena, and don't plan to anytime soon.

Finally, the intellectually challenging will not understand this line.

* {{color|maroon||'''BK:''' I'm not sure I'd use the term idolize, but there have been many that have encouraged me to be active in the community. The first will always be {{god|Nexus}}. He taught me much of what I know about the game mechanics back in my first few months of playing. He was also the first to give me arena tips, and pushed me to sign up for the Tournament of Champions. There have been many members of the [[League of Adjudicators]] that have supported me over the years.  I'd also have to mention my friends over in the [[Ankh-Morpork City Watch]] and [[Guild Name]].  And a big tip of the hat to people like {{god|Vorpal}}, {{god|Morrigan Dahlia}}, {{god|Dogess}}, {{god|Rodrigo Augustus}}, and many others. And sure, let's toss Hairplug in there too.}}

* '''HP:''' What arena moment is your most memorable?
+
* '''SIC:''' Name something you and your hero have in common? 
* {{color|maroon||'''BK:''' There was a fight I had, long ago.  I don't remember who I was fighting, but it was back before my temple was finished. I'd sent my hero to the arena, then forgot to check until maybe 10 minutes later. I'd matched, and my opponent was beating the stuffing out of my hero. I want to say it was maybe 8 or 9 steps in by the time I got there. My hero's health was down to around 100, his opponent twice that. <br>First thing I did was hit the punish button, since I only had a few seconds to decide. Backfire, of course. My hero's health was at 2. <br>I went straight to healing, and, after a few minutes, was able to get my health back up and evened things out with my opponent. <br>It's been 2 years or so, and I'm old so memory may be failing, but I think the fight went about 40 steps before I pulled out a victory.}}
+
* {{color|maroon||'''TM:''' Oh! We are always looking for innovative ways to spend money!}}          
* '''HP:''' Gladiators always remember that time they came back from 2, yours was even more tantalizing, being that you backfired on your first action.
+
* '''SIC:''' If you could swap heroes with another deity, with whom would it be and why?
* {{color|maroon||'''BK:''' I don't think I'd have used "tantalizing" at the time though. More like "extreme annoyance" followed by obscenities.}}
+
* {{color|maroon||'''TM:''' With {{god|Keleios}}! Her hero seems to behave very well and does what she wants. She definitely has her hero wrapped around her pinkie and what more? She has an ark too! And if can swap heroes like this, then i want to be able to swap pets too :P}}
* '''HP:''' What inspired you to resurrect the ToC?
+
* '''SIC:''' If your hero was a scary pumpkin, what would the carved face look like?
* {{color|maroon||'''BK:''' I don't feel like I'm resurrecting the ToC. After 4 very successful tournaments, the ToC was very much alive and kicking when I found it, hitchhiking on the highway. I'm just giving it a lift. Honestly, with such motivated people helping out I feel like I'm just along for the ride. After competing (and having a good time doing it) in the last 3 ToCs I want to do my part in seeing it continue. These tournaments promote community here in Godville. They encourage us to make connections and to find new friends.  For a game as social as GV, those are some pretty important things.}}
+
* {{color|maroon||'''TM:''' It would be a mean cat with a bloody mouse in his jaw :D}}
''All of us here at the Weekly Harvest would like to say a big “Thank you!” to {{god|LHR Bad Karma}} for picking up the torch and running with it. We’re looking forward to seeing where it goes!''
+
* '''SIC:''' What is your hero dressing up as, this Halloween?
 +
* {{color|maroon||'''TM:''' Die 48 hours before Halloween, wake up by himself and voila! The aura of spookiness will do the trick:P}}

As many of you know I'm an arena addict, I was the first god with Honored Invincible and currently hold the most number of wins in Godville. But what many of you may not know (except maybe those few who were wise enough to figure it out themselves, who I'm sure are very few) is that I have often used some special tactics to get myself here. But since I'm always looking for a better fight, and also because i've been receiving too many death threats, I am now willing to reveal a few of my tricks of the trade.

Godville lag. Many people experience this in many different ways but it can be used for your advantage. Are you facing a tough opponent? Someone who is high up on a pantheon? Friend them when you get to step 4. Send them a message of good luck and well wishes. Every time you send a message to some people there are alerts going off and they distracts them and make them look away from the fight. And with some people using Android devices, it can even lag their phone causing them to miss a turn. Just make sure this technique doesn't backfire on you, it requires much focus.

Small talk voice commands. This little trick is one of my favorites, it requires you to research your opponent even if just so slightly as to understand and make fun of their name. Make sure you are using proper voice commands and not mixing them when doing this but if you can distract them long enough to type out their own brand new voice command to come back at you they could possibly miss the turn as a result of writing for way too long.

Lying! This one you can have fun with. Especially with a disgusting worthless no good goody goody. Tell people you're in for a pet res, put it in your motto that you have no GP left, or an insider tip put this little ® thing in your motto and get an afk who might be willing to lay down and die for your cause of success. Don't feel bad about it, all is fair in love and war and arena.

In the end the most important thing and what I love the most about this game, is to be proud of what you have accomplished, love what you do, and make sure people remember your name. If that means destroying every one of them to do it, then what must be must be. There are alot more on my list, but you obviously cant expect me to reveal them all.

Since I haven't yet retired from the arena, and don't plan to anytime soon.

Finally, the intellectually challenging will not understand this line.

Get to Know a Deity

Infrared imaging by Godville Space Agency shows the true blueness of Keleios
GodStrawberry Ice Cream  sat down with our beloved GodKeleios  to get a little inside her fur.
  • SIC: Let's start the interview by getting to know you. How would you describe your cat?
  • K: My kitty is furry and sparkly. Can't find it? Look up in the rafters where she tends to lurk.. waiting for a chance to glitter. (Comment from the DANgerzone79) Don't look up she'll get glitter in your eye!
  • SIC: What does keleios have for breakfast on Halloween?
  • BK: The souls of whoever made up these questions
  • SIC: Where can I buy my own keleios motto?
  • BK: Keleios™ mottos are controlled by The great big sparkly cat in the sky, you'll have to ask her. Bring something to bribe her with. Wood is preferred
  • SIC: Stealing candy from babies is one of my career options, now that i am graduating. What advice would you give me?
  • BK: Slap the candy out of their hands, and quench your thirst on the river of tears. Or just buy it from the store, so much easier. Or better yet, just worship me. I'll pay in candy.
  • SIC: What is your cat's favourite halloween treat?
  • BK: Failed Keleios™ Mottos. Or lamb. Or any kind of food. If its not nailed down....
  • SIC: What is keleios dressing up as, this halloween?
  • BK: Why, Keleios does not dress up as OTHERS, Others dress up as Keleios!!!

The Weekly Harvest would like to say a big “Thank you!” to GodStrawberry Ice Cream  for being promoted to lead interviewer. You will be our Fresh Air from WHYY

  • SIC: If your hero was a scary pumpkin, what would the carved face look like?
  • TM: It would be a mean cat with a bloody mouse in his jaw :D
