:bulletgreen: Player Vs Player Competitions are currently OPEN:bulletgreen:

Player vs Player competitions, or PvP, are contests between just two Tokotas. You may choose to draw your Tokota and their chosen opponent in a single image, or you may draw only your Tokota and be paired via RNG to another single entry. The scoring is simple: 50% applicable bonuses, 50% RNG. May luck be on your side! But beware: All of these events have the potential for your Tokota to walk away with injuries! 

Rules and Requirements

Basic rules for all classes

  • Each "round" has a maximum of two participants. A round is a scored group that compete against each other.
  • A Tokota can may be entered in multiple competitions at a time, however if they receive Severe Injuries they will denied any later rounds.
  • You may create 30 PvP entries per month for all classes, total.
  • Each round is worth up to 100 points: 50 from bonuses, and 50 from RNG. The Tokota with the most points wins.
  • If your Tokota has more than 50 bonus points, only the first 50 listed will apply.
  • To participate, you must create a new tracker journal or add a section to your current trackers where admins can respond with official event results.
  • Collaboration is allowed, but only double entries may contain two Tokotas. Said Tokotas must be the Tokotas competing against each other.
  • Double entries count as an entry for each player.
  • 'Randomly paired' entries may only contain one Tokota.
  • In RNG paired rounds, the oldest entry in the folder will be paired with the randomly selected opponent. 
  • 'Choose your own opponent' entries must have the non-submitting owner post permission for their Tokota to participate.
  • Tribe owned Tokotas are not allowed to participate.
  • 5 wins here equal a CE win for PotA.

Basic requirements for all competitions


  • Tokotas must be full body (75%) in art, and mentioned throughout the piece in literature.
  • Handlers, where required, must be at least 50% depicted in art and be substantially mentioned in literature.
  • Moderately complex backgrounds are required in art as well as coloring. Shading is optional. Grayscale/monochromatic art is acceptable if the Tokota still has identifiable markings of a value relative to its import.
  • Literature entries must follow the same basic requirements as for drawing, and have a minimum of 1200 words, with a clear beginning and end.
  • Where equipment is listed it must be shown at least 50% (e.g. sleds, tack).


How to Enter


Submit your entry to the class's linked folder with the  below form filled out in the description. 


Tokota's Import Link:

Traits/Companions/Items:
Safety Items? Please list:
(hardy, porcupine, leg protectors)
Proof of Items: (link your bank)
Entry #: (?/30)







    500-Yard Dash

    Not too far, but definitely fast! For those Tokotas who don't want to risk anything more dangerous than a rolled ankle, this is the competition for you. 


Entry Requirements


  • Backgrounds must reflect the prompt: This race takes place on an outdoor track of your choice. 
  • No handler required.

Applicable Bonuses:


  • Snow Leopard, Borga Sprite
  • Friendly Foe, Natural Competitor, Thrill Seeker, Bribery
  • Competition Headstall, Fish Cake Casserole/Sushi Roll, Tasty/Tastier/Tastiest Tokota Yummies, Whistle



    Toko Warrior

    A competition where your Tokota must face various obstacles. Everything from climbing walls, swimming tanks, jumping platforms, and more. If it could pose a challenge, it might appear. Better watch out though, because some of these falls could hurt!


Entry Requirements


  • Backgrounds must reflect the prompt: an indoor or outdoor obstacle course, with obstacles of your choosing.
  • No handler is required.


Applicable Bonuses:


  • Australian Shepherd, Borga Sprite
  • Friendly Foe, Natural Competitor, Thrill Seeker, Bribery
  • Competition Headstall, Fish Cake Casserole/Sushi Roll, Leg Wraps, Whistle



    Toko Jousting

    Like knights of old, in this competition your handler will saddle up, armor up, and attempt to stab their opponent right out of the saddle. The odds of being injured are very high, so you better hope that your armor withstands the impact!


Entry Requirements

  • The background must reflect the prompt: A straight track, either grass or dirt.
  • A handler IS required.
  • Tack required: a saddle and jousting lance at minimum.

Applicable Bonuses:

  • Miniature horse, Borga Sprite
  • Friendly Foe, Natural Competitor, Thrill Seeker, Bribery
  • Competition Headstall, Competition Halter, Competition Saddle, Warm Blanket, Sheepskin Saddle Pad, Fish Cake Casserole/Sushi Roll, Meat/Premium/Exceptional Jerky, Sharpened Nail Caps





Prize Pool


Prizes for these events are given only to the winner and come in the form of a Winner's Surprise Pack. Like treasure chests, these packs open to reveal a randomly selected prize from the pool of possible prizes. There are three levels of prizes to correspond with the three levels of risk in the events, and your prizes are based on the danger level of the entry! As they say, the greater the risk, the greater the reward! Prize options include:
HP Token by TokoTime Trait Token by TokoTime Toko Tokens by TokoTime Medicated Bandages by TokoTime Bandages by TokoTime Round Ointment Tin by TokoTime Pills by TokoTime Tack Trunk by TokoTime Mystery Geno by TokoTime Hooded Rat by TokoTime Red Fox by TokoTime Rockhopper Penguin by TokoTime White Weasel by TokoTime Abandoned Pup by TokoTime Abandoned Toki Pup by TokoTime Abandoned Dire Pup by TokoTime Elemental Heart by TokoTime Stone of Aippaq by TokoTime Box of Chocolates by TokoTime






FAQ

My Tokota got injured! Where do I fix that??

    Information about injuries and how to fix them can be found here.

Can I avoid getting injuries?

    Yes! Porcupines, leg protectors, hardy, and porcupine totems all function in PvP as they do in REs.

Do Blessed or Aippaq's Luck apply to these?

    No, neither of these traits apply to/have any effect on PvP competitions.

Do the rolls with the fox/weasel/penguin include the tokota's other bonuses and tack?

Also, can we use all of them for one entry? Or do we have to pick what companion we'd prefer to use?
TotemSpirit's avatar
No, the Fox/Weasel/Penguin companions are "basic" rolls with no tack, bonuses, companions or totems taken into account.

And no, you can only get a roll from one of them per entry. So you will have to choose which one you want the roll from (if you have more than one of them applied to a toko) and then state your choice in (+ a link to your activity tracker) your PvP form.

So, both lit and art are accepted for these entries, correct?
TotemSpirit's avatar
That's correct, you can read more about the requirements for art and literature in the rules section on this journal.

Heyo, I got a question!! :D

Soooo, are Tokotas allowed to fight? Like, it would be my Tokota and another user's! If so, which thing would it classify for?? As in, Risky or Dangerous??

Hey there!

Currently, that wouldn't necessarily be allowed for a PvP entry, as entries need to fit the current categories, so a running race, a "Ninja Warrior" course or jousting! ;u;/ That doesn't mean you can't draw your tokota fighting another, it just can't be judged as a PvP entry!

I have a couple of questions :D
- can I enter two of my own tokotas to compete against each other? or does it have to be another players tokota?
- can we use starters to compete against our own tokos?

It must be another player's Tokota, and you may not use a starter. If you don't have an opponent picked out, you would submit to the single entry folder :)

I can't express how disappointed I am. I commissioned and drawn some PvPs in autumn 2018. Then PvP was suddenly closed without any warning and all my questions about PvP were ignored. Now these PvP pictures don't fit any of the prompts here. What is more, my tokota was one win away from obtaining a prize equal to the First Place Alpha Requirement.

Are all types of Tokotas allowed? (Normals, Tokis, Dires, Akotas)

Suggestion,  I think along with wolfdog127 that the competitions with the more risk should involve a bundle more likely to give better prizes. (Or more bundles XD)
wolfdog127's avatar
Does the prize pool get better with the more dangerous events?

Not a question but porcupines are mentioned twice in the FAQ question about avoiding injuries!

Will a win in this competition count as a 1rst Place for Alpha?
Furreon's avatar
FurreonHobbyist Digital Artist
It says in the rules that 5 PvP wins equals to 1 CE win, so if you get 5 PvP wins, that counts for the PotA requirement :>

Handler should be depicted riding the toko for jousting? And can the entry image be before or after the actual jousting takes place? Like, setting up the armor before. Or taking it off after, etc. 
TotemSpirit's avatar
It can be before or after if you wish. As long as all the elements are there, you're good to go!
