Ruination: The Contagion - Discussion

Post by That Kode Guy » Wed Aug 20, 2014 11:10 am

That's right, I'm finally opening the discussion thread. And no this isn't a sign-ups thread so don't bother posting bots here yet unless you're showcasing ideas. :v:

Just in case Spatula and Badnik have trouble or w/e with RB or LoRE 2 respectively, I'll go ahead and get this in "alpha" mode for now. :v:

I'll probably open the sign-ups thread in a few days, but I want to finalize a few things, so that I don't have to edit the damn sign-up post a lot.

Firstly, who would like to be writers for the tournament? I'm not saying I'll accept anybody or everybody, but I am interested in that.

Secondly, what arenas would you like to see return, or not? What arena ideas do you have? (no, no pits, thanks :v: )

Thirdly, what kind of stat system would people like to see? The one we're currently using? The one Spatula has for Robot Bastards? A newer one?

Last of all, who would be able to stick through the tournament to the very end? It's likely this would start in early 2015 or something, and go to like May or June.

Discuss!

Well I think I would be willing to be on staff.

As far as arena's, please no Lumina Cloth unless it's decently modified. :P Other than that I liked the newer version of Casino Night Zone, and I think Land of Confusion worked out pretty well too.

I guess I can't really say yay or nay to the Robot Bastards system until I actually see it in action. So I guess I'd off opinions on the stat system for now.

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

In seriousness though, as long as it's not a Single-elim tournament or something it'll probably be cool.

I'll write as well.

As far as multiple arenas go, I like the idea that spatula floated where you have a different arena for each weight class, and they just use that one arena.

entering. Maybe I'll actually use Astraphobia here and not in RB (the weapon split rule really kills those designs :/)

Okay, thanks to a number of factors that just occurred recently, and indirect thanks to Josh and NFX for this one, I am going to set-up a hard rule here.

If you want to bitch or complain about a match publically, make sure it has at least some measure of reasonability to it. Otherwise, you will get suspended from the tournament for the next week, have any RP threads you put up be ignored/deleted, and automatically go 0-4 for that week.

I will no longer tolerate needless bitching about results, whether they were feasible or not. This is not a rant forum. You want to rant? Go to the writer of the match, PM them; Hell, call them a steaming pile of shit if you want (though I wouldn't recommend that). Otherwise, don't post about it.

Well uh, apparently Photoshop hates the fuck out of me, so I guess we're going without a logo for a third straight season. Unless anyone would like to step up to the plate.

*collective groan*

Sign-up thread coming up.

Good to see this in the works&#33; Not sure what I will enter for it at the moment, but I'm currently working on a few ideas that might be good.
