Quick Great Jedi War Updates

Greetings all,

The Great Jedi War has been rocking and we've seen hundreds of submissions already! As the Great Jedi War moves into the final week of Phase I, we wanted to bring you some quick updates. We've updated Placement Points and provided another two options for Collective Strike. Read on for more details!

Placement Points

As you all know, the unexpected failure of a Flash game caused us to cancel one of our gaming competitions we had slated for Phase I. We've modified placement points for this phase and updated them in competitions, causing a minor increase in points for all competitions and a decent increase for both gaming competitions remaining in this Phase. We've also updated the GJW XII Wiki with placement information, and the Wiki will be the authority in the future if there is ever a typo or confusion over how much competitions are worth.

Collective Strike: Additional Targets Acquired

We've updated the Event Long Collective Strike with two new targets:

These two join a set of three other Collective agents members may take on in Collective Strike.

To provide a bit of additional clarity, this competition is a fiction competition with an explicit combat focus. As this is meant to be a story about the combat between one of these characters and your main character or alt, your entry should tell a story about the combat between these (and potentially other!) characters, and the combat itself should be more than an afterthought if you are interested in placing. The exact 'amount' of combat required is not something that can be easily quantified, and will depend on each member's story. As this is being judged based on the Fiction Rubric, you are a bit more free to introduce elements that might not be possible in the ACC, including other characters, and you are not restricted by what rules may restrict ACC posts. Keep in mind that unlike most fiction competitions, this competition's prompt is explicitly focused on combat. Members may choose any of the targets we list and entries will not be judged based on the perceived difficulty of the combat between the characters, and we strongly encourage creativity in combat and storytelling!

The competition itself has been updated with the above targets and has seen a minor clarification update, to ensure members are aware they may use alts.

Phase I: One Week Left!

Phase I has one week left, with competitions closing on 10/30! We've already seen hundreds of entries and are expecting plenty more. Don't miss out on the extra bonus points by participating in at least one competition per bin! You can track your participation in bins by checking out the GJW XII parent competition and ensure you've got submissions to all of Phase I.

That's it for now, and we hope you enjoy all the competitions GJW XII has to offer! As always, our door is always open, on Telegram or by email.

Good luck!

Announcement

Hello DJB! You all are putting out some incredible matches in the Jedi Academy and Heroes of the Storm Bracket competitions! I wasn’t planning on putting this information out until the mid-war break, but since we’re so far along in one bracket, I need to get the methodology for placements out to you now so you can all prepare!

Remember. First through Tenth Place matters for the GJW. I’m going to make you work for your placement, even if it doesn’t award Novae. You get points. And points are gooood.

div

5th-10th Place Placement Brackets, Explained

Placement for the Jedi Academy Bracket and the HotS 2v2 Bracket will be determined in the following manner:

The Final Four will all play two matches. First, they will compete to determine the top two Jedi Academy Players and HotS Teams in the DJB. The two members or teams who lose in the final four will play each other to determine 3rd and 4th place.

For 5th through 8th place, The four members or teams that lost in the Elite Eight will follow the same manner. They will compete to determine the matchup for 5th and 6th place, while the members or teams who lost their matches will compete for 7th and 8th place.

For 9th and 10th place, the eight members or teams who lost in the Sweet Sixteen will play another bracket.

Both the 5th through 8th place brackets and 9th and 10th place brackets will be randomly seeded.

div

The timeframes for the secondary and tertiary brackets should give everyone plenty of time to get matches in. If you have any issues with getting your matches completed, please let me know. I will expect that you have done everything you can to match up with your opponent. Send me the email traffic and telegram logs and I will make a determination on a way ahead.

Thank you all for taking part in the GJW gaming events. I sincerely hope you are all enjoying them!

Clan Credits

Credit Earning for the Great Jedi War has been finalized. This details the bonus credits that will be earned by each Clan after the Great Jedi War is over and results are announced, in addition to credits earned through existing means on the site.

Participation Credits: Clans will earn 500,000 credits for every full participation % point they earn. This is calculated by adding up how many unique bins were participated in by members of a Clan, then dividing that by the number of available bins that could have been participated in total across the entire war for that Clan.

Clan roster sizes will be determined by the same method as the war placement. Max payment will be 50,000,000 credits for full participation.

Merit Credits: Clans will earn credits depending on their final placement in the war, relative to the other Clans. Top Clan gets 50,000,000 credits, and then the payout is reduced 5% for each lower position rounded up to the nearest 100,000 credits. This results in all Clans getting at least 37,000,000 credits, with up to 13,000,000 bonus credits for placing at the top.

  • 1st: 50,000,000
  • 2nd: 47,500,000
  • 3rd: 45,200,000
  • 4th: 43,000,000
  • 5th: 40,900,000
  • 6th: 38,900,000
  • 7th: 37,000,000

The final bonus will be paid out to Clans, adding the two numbers above. It is balanced such that Clans should see around a 15% increase in the net value of their fleets with this bonus.

Battle Plan

As a reminder to all since it's slightly different than past events, the Battle Plan Event in this GJW happens in multiple phases that do not overlap. There is a phase 1 and phase 2 that must be completed for placement. The first taking place in space while the second will take place on the ground with details to follow during phase 2. If you miss out on submitting a valid entry for phase 1, you won't be able to place in the battle plan event.

This is slightly different than past event long battle plans, but I hope it gives Clans a chance to make some decisions early on that help later and utilize the specific composition of your military forces. Giving at least some level of impact on decision making during your planning. I am looking forward to reading through the various plans that are presented.

In darkness,
Evant

All,

Drac and I have investigated several complaints in the last few days about members allegedly playing only intra-clan gaming matches against members of their own units. This post is a reminder about the rules regarding those matches.

For this phase, intra-clan gaming matches (two members of a clan playing each other) are allowed. However, you may not time your availability for matches so that you are only playing fellow clan members. In order to play in the GJW, you need to make yourself available to all gaming members, not just people in your clan. If you play only against members of your clan, that might be seen as a form of match dodging and could be brought before me for consideration.

It's very easy to see when people are dodging matches from other clans. We can see summaries of your matches to tell who you are primarily playing against. We can also see chat logs of how those matches are set up and whether members have made themselves generally available to others. Keep in mind that you are not supposed to arrange matches in private messages or other channels. One easy tell that a member is match dodging is that they happen to sign onto the bot when a fellow clan member is available for a match, then they immediately leave after that match. When that happens over and over, we grow very suspicious.

Part of the reason for the warning on this is that I don't want anyone to come before me that wasn't actually trying to dodge. We can see the circumstantial evidence, and the appearance that you are only playing your clan members might be enough to get you in trouble. To make sure that doesn't happen, please make yourself generally available, and if you find that it is just your clan that you play over and over, you may want to push hard for some other opponents. We will warn you if it looks like you are running afoul of the rules, but please vary your opponents so it does not come to that.

Thank you for your cooperation with this.

Members of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood -

The Chamber of Justice has convened and issued a verdict in the pending case of DB v. Arvalis Raith. The case involved two charges of plagiarism and two charges of cheating. The Chamber has worked with the member towards obtaining a confession to the charges as permitted by the Covenant. A detailed confession statement and Justicar Opinion for the case can be found in the PDF file linked below. Please note that the written opinion is generally found on the page after announcement of the verdict. I have taken some time to write a detailed account of how confessions work in the CoJ under the revised Covenant as this is the first chance we've had to put it to use. Please familiarize yourself with the process.

The confessed verdict was as follows:

Case #058 - DB v. Arvalis Raith - Opinion PDF

  • Count 1 - Plagiarism - Guilty Confession
  • Count 2 - Cheating - Guilty Confession
  • Verdict - GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS
  • Punishment: Letter of Reprimand; Strict Probation for 3 months followed by 3 months General Probation; Disqualification from Art 4 Arx competitions; Ban on placement in graphics competitions for 3 months (may still participate).

Comments on CoJ posts are left open for positive comments and words of encouragement to a member that has just gone through this hard process. Please be kind.

Signed and sealed in Justice,

Jac Ae-Sequiera Cotelin

Nancora Orbit Outer Rim Territories On board the Skylla Present

Rath Oligard waited. All the pieces to his plan had fallen into place. It was only a matter of time now.

“Planetary ion canon’s are primed and awaiting order,” a bridge officer called out.

This was the calm before the storm. The last remaining members of the Oligard family stood side by side on the bridge of Collective’s flagship. Rath’s large shoulders bowed backward with his ramrod posture, the collar of his long coat perfectly pressed and just as imposing as his presence on the bridge. In stark contrast, Avitus’ hunched posture and gaunt frame looked frail and waifish under his much more pedestrian looking coat.

“Interdictor gravity wells are standing by. The timer on the mines has been set, as per your instructions, and the retrofitted frigates have been laid out as a greeting to our expected guests,” Captain Sul Pahlee reported. He paused, adjusted the collar of his uniform, and then continued. “Are you sure this is the time to show our hand, Lord Superior? What if they do not show?”

The leader of the Collective did not balk at the question or rebuke his Captain. That was not his way. He encouraged speculation and free thought among his crews, and in return they became even more loyal. Instead, Rath simply smiled with infectious confidence.

“They will show,” Avitus Oligard cut in before Rath could mouth an answer. “Another minute.” The gaunt figure’s thin, whisper-like voice lacked any sense of privilege or arrogance. He was simply stating a fact. Captain Pahlee had served long enough to know not to take offense to the Chief Counsel’s lack of regard for military formality with crewman.

Rath nodded once and turned his eyes back out towards the expanse of space—toward the blank canvas that would soon become alite with the fire and flames of all that he had worked for.

The War he had dreamed of for so long had finally begun. Retribution would be his, and the Brotherhood would suffer for what it did to his family.

Summary

Great War XII is now in full swing. This fiction confirms that all seven units, regardless of their individual motives, have arrived in Nancora space to face off with the Collective. The various prompts for the competitions will provide you with any other details needed. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on Telegram or by email. If you're not comfortable doing so, feel free to check with your Proconsul's and Consul's–who are comfortable with then yelling at me to get answers.

As a reminder, the Collective Wikipedia page is being continually updated as we get more information. NPCs are being filled in and created to flush out the rival factions roster, and will continue to be updated as we continue to move forward. Remember that the Collective was not just made for this War, but in hopes of providing an organization rival for future story arcs to come.

An Advanced Scouting Report will continue to be filled out, but for right now it should address some questions that came up when talking about the Collectives cybernetics and how they work with the system. Please keep in mind that in order to create a challenging enemy, I (as current Voice and one of the creators of the character sheet system) have taken a few creative liberties with the systems here and there to make things work. If you're concerned or have questions about this, please contact me directly- I'm always happy to explain my administrative actions to anyone that's curious.

Check out the below links for more information.

Great Jedi War XII

Jedi Academy 1v1 Tournament Update #1

Good Evening DJB!

We are almost complete with the first round of the Jedi Academy 1v1 Tournament!

As discussed on Telegram, I have allowed some extensions based off necessity from members who asked for them. I have also reviewed the email threads for members who tried desperately to contact their opponent. Those members who actively attempted to contact their opponents have been moved forward, and the members that failed to respond have forfeited their opportunity to compete and has been removed from the competition bracket. The members removed from the tournament in Round 1 will not receive competition credit, as they did not physically participate.

Moving forward, I will not approve any extensions. Any second round matchups that fail to complete their matches on time will be immediately disqualified, but will still earn participation credit.

The following matches must be completed by site reset tomorrow. I will not approve another extension:

  • Aul vs. Sang
  • Evelynn vs. Maximus
  • Raiju vs. Vosiri
  • Armad vs. Dox

I have removed four members from the tournament. Two by personal request, and two for either failing to respond to their opponent or for failing to live up to their end of the agreed upon match time.

div

The timer for Round 2 will not begin until site reset tomorrow. This round will run until Friday, 20 October. With that said, if your matchup is already set, you may start playing your matches.

A reminder: You are required to queue for the bot and send your email to me (cc your opponent, I only need one email per matchup) in order for your matches to count. You won’t have a competition to select, I handle the competition manually because that’s how the bracket events work. The bot queueing requirement is for two reasons:

It gives you clusters It provides site history for the event, which gives me proof matches occur after I delete old emails. The email requirement is simple: it is an acknowledgement by both parties that the results are true, and provides an immediate email chain if there is any discrepancy.

div

Thanks to all who participated in the first round! You’ve already earned seals for your efforts, and participation points on top of that! I wish all the combatants the best of luck in Round 2!

Play clean, play fair, and have fun!

Announcement

Good morning, DJB. Last night we made a quick adjustment of one of the GJW Phase 1 flash games due to an unforeseen issue with the game loading. The replacement game was tested by two people over a period of approximately 30 minutes and subsequently went live late last night. Unfortunately, that game has issues as well. In short, Star Wars Rebels: Ghost Raid has a cumulative score rather than a score on each individual level. So in short, you could amass an infinite score depending on how much time you have to dedicate to a game. That is not how I want the GJW gaming events to function. It’s not in the spirit of the competition, and it’s not something that can be controlled to ensure that gaming is as fair as possible across the board.

div

As such, the [GJW XII Phase 1] Gaming - Ghost Raid will be removed by the MAA. This competition will not count for participation or seals. The DGM will reshuffle the participation point scheme for phase 1 to prevent any issues with scoring.

I will work a new game for Phase 2 to replace the lost event.

div

I apologize to all who have already submitted, and to the rest of the DB for not fully vetting this competition before setting it as live. I wanted to keep the gap left by the broken Pod Racer game filled, and I went a bit too fast.

Thanks for your patience, and again, I hope you all enjoy the remaining gaming events for the GJW.

The Twelfth Great Jedi War

Rath Oligard, former Fleet Admiral of the Dark Brotherhood, was declared absent without leave from the Fleet in 29 ABY. Known throughout the Brotherhood as a rising military star, Oligard abandoned his position following the tragic and unfortunate events that led to the death of his family on an uncharted planet known only as XL374.

Oligard’s journey over the next six years took him from sorrow, to depression, to anger, and finally towards a single driven purpose. The galaxy had toiled under the yoke of Force users for Rath’s entire life. The Old Republic were ruled by a cadre of unfeeling and arrogant monks who sat within a temple and passed judgment upon the galaxy. The Empire ruled with an iron fist and destroyed any and all who opposed it. Now, the galaxy sat in a state of abject chaos as multiple Theocracies attempted to impose their will upon it.

The former Fleet Admiral would tolerate it no longer. He crawled from the alcoholic haze that blurred the loss of his family from his memory. He drug himself, upon hands and knees, into the dens of miscreants and criminals until he finally began to find those who understood his new found philosophical goal. The Galaxy was a miserable and contemptuous place, but it was much more tolerable when it was not oppressed by the Jedi or Sith.

The creation of the Collective was a tedious and daunting process. Rath’s personal vanguard within the Liberation Front were the true believers. They despised Force users of all kinds and abhorred the institutions that they created. The Technocratic Guild, a series of eccentric engineers and scientists, did not harbor the same hatred for Force users, but did jealously covet their knowledge and possessions. Finally, Capital Enterprises; the mercenaries for hire within the Collective, agreed to Rath’s terms solely to eliminate the Force users from cutting into their bottom line. Rath understood Capital Enterprises greed, but he also knew their enigmatic leader, Ghafa Ordam, harbored deep hatred for the Sith and their slaver ways.

Six years, billions of credits, and the unification of multiple visions produced the organization that now opposed the Dark Brotherhood. Rath Oligard, military genius, rogue, and charismatic leader, looked forward to finally obtaining the justifiable wrath he sought for his family.

He had conducted hundreds of small scale attacks against the Dark Brotherhood fleets over the past several weeks and now he had ushered them to his front door on Nancora. Exactly where he wanted them.


Dark Jedi Brotherhood,

Welcome to Great Jedi War XII: Retribution. This Great Jedi War marks the beginning of a tidal shift in the affairs of the Dark Brotherhood's story. Over the past two months we made a deliberate decision to create a new enemy for the Dark Brotherhood that would persist beyond a singular war and be available for use by Clans and the Dark Council for the years to come. This decision resulted in the coding of new capabilities on our website, namely the introduction of the Faction page. This allowed our incredible team of Dark Councilors the ability to create an NPC Opposition Force that had all of the characteristics of our very own Clans. You can see the fruit of their labors throughout the Collective's Faction page. Possessions, character sheets, fleets, and some very unique and powerful aspects shape the Collective into an enemy that is worthy of the Dark Brotherhood's combined efforts in the Dark Brotherhood. We were also able to turn some rather hot and sexy images of Rath Oligard, Daggo Mouk, and Ghafar Ordan in an extremely fast manner.

The abundance of world and story creation for the GJW have left many of your heads spinning due to the volume of new content. I'll capture as many of the relevant links as I can below to help streamline your data dives and research. This includes a wiki page that has been designed specifically to help you navigate this GJW.

We hope you enjoy the competitions that have been designed for Retribution. The Dark Council spent an insane amount of hours refining rules, competition prompts, and the new ways for our members to participate in the war. I am extremely proud of the team’s work and equally proud of our Club’s Consuls and membership for taking on this new story with grace. I am well aware that it was an abrupt departure from the past, but hope everyone understands why we believed this new path was a better future for the club.

Lastly, remember that the DJB is for fun and entertainment. Do not allow the competitive juices of our biggest competition to cloud your judgment over the next five weeks. The Justicar has been very clear about his expectations and I will echo his sentiments. The GJW can be a great time for all of you, but it can also be a time where your DJB career dies because of stupid decisions. Have fun, compete like hell, but be a good dude/dudette.

I wish all of you the best of luck!

Sith Throne Room
Ancient Ruins
Uskil, Arx
Present

Spurred by the wealth of data being fed from the Inquisitors infiltrating inside the Collective ranks, information on the Collective spread like a natural contagion throughout the Dark Brotherhood. Even without his presence, it seemed, Marick Tyris’ organization of the Inquisitorius’ network had been effective . The Voice was proving himself to be the asset that Pravus had bet on long ago.

Members passed information to one another in hushed tones, data files were sent between Clans, and Jedi and Sith alike were notified of Rath Oligard’s intent to extinguish the flame of the Force from the galaxy. The seven Clan Consuls, some operating in unison and others operating independently, issued a series of orders and contingency plans to their fleets.

Freshly repaired from the battle against the Suffering, renown capital ships Invicta II and Solari calculated their jumps to lightspeed. The Ascendency and the other prestigious flag ships of the remaining Clan’s forces leapt into hyperspace, ready to serve as vanguard forces for the war that was to come. The members of the Clans rushed towards the chance to fight under their own banners and the opportunity to fight an opponent that was not one of their own.

Their sense of urgency was driven by the countless conflicting reports that indicated the Collective’s base of operations on Nancora possessed a threat that loomed larger than the combined efforts of the Dark Brotherhood’s greatest enemies of the past. The Technocratic Guild was reportedly in the possession of a weapon capable of immeasurable power. Some Clans received reports that the Collective had uncovered ancient Sith mysteries that the Grand Master believed were a pathway to never before seen power, while others had received information that they had engineered a biological pathogen that targeted the cells of those gifted with the power to harness the Force. Others still came to the realization that the massive Collective fleet was regrouping from its most recent excursions and would be vulnerable to a first strike when they least expected it.
